With the end of the high school season fast approaching, we began our AAU previews at the start of March and now we have begun the look at rosters. Rosters and teams are starting to take shape and we are getting more and more everyday. This one, is a look at EG10 2019 coached by Devin Davis Sr.
Bedford North Lawrence
Evansville Mater Dei
Covington Catholic (KY)
Roster Breakdown: There is so much potential on this team. You have a ton of different play styles and every player is supremely athletic. The team will be run by Isiah Moore and Noah Smith and both guys can pass and score the ball at the basket. Then you have guys like Brayton Bailey and Nelson Mbongo who are great wings who can create off the bounce. Brandon Vernon and Nich Thelen both shoot the three ball very well. This team can beat you in many different ways and I would look for them to have a big summer.
Guy You Have To Watch: Logan Carter (Evansville Mater Dei)
Carter is a guy who has lost a bit of weight over the past two years and he has grown to 6’10. Carter is finally getting comfortable in his body and is starting to come around with his offense. He is one of the best rebounders in the state and any ball in his area is one that he is going to grab. He should have a bit summer and will put his shot blocking skills on display.
Best Bet To End Up Breaking Out: Noah Smith (Hamilton Southeastern)
Smith has always been a guy that is on the cusp of breaking out if he could just add a little aggressiveness to his game on the offensive end. He was shooting it well during the high school season so I expect that it will carry over into this AAU season. He could be a really good player once he becomes more aggressive, one that could jump onto LM radars. I think that he is going to come out this summer in a big way.
Who Should Be Watching: LM-NAIA
Some of these guys are low major talent if they end up breaking out but most are NAIA/D2 type of guys. Vernon holds and IUPUI offer and guys like Carter, Moore, and Smith are looking for their first D1 offers. Whether or not those come is yet to be seen but what we know for sure is that D2’s should be all over this group of kids.
