DuQuoin sophomore wing Lamontay Daughtery was clearly the best prospect in the gym on Wednesday night at the Southern Illinois Pure Sweat Skills Day. The 2020 small forward is a 6’6” small forward with a great combination of length, athleticism, and emerging skill. He has gotten stronger in his upper body over the course of the last year which is allowing him to consistently finish around the cup through defenders. Smooth acceleration with the ball off the bounce getting to the rim with ease. The shot was a bit streaky in the drills, but once the game started he showed he can drill some tough jumpers including a step back and another turnaround fade away. High points rebounds, used his length defensively, and overall played hard. He is the #3 prospect in the 2020 class and a high-major recruit.
