There were a number of more than capable shooters on display on the first day of Session 1 Los Angeles. However, the prospects below might force us to switch out the nets before resuming play tomorrow due to their strong shooting abilities. Keep an eye on these prospects tomorrow as they can let it fly with the best of them.

Session 1 Los Angeles: Day 1 Top Shooters

Michael Solimando 6’1 SG 2019 Redondo Union (Los Angeles Elite 17U Black)

All day Solimando was causing problems for opposing teams due to his length and quick release. In addition, he moved well without the basketball to create space for himself. Further, while others were forcing shots, Solimando waited for the right shot. This allowed him to shoot a high percentage on open looks.

Adrian McIntyre 6’2 SG 2020 Saugus (Pump-N-Run)

McIntyre is apart of one of the best backcourts in this event. With that said, he primarily played role of shooter today as he made opposing teams pay if he was ever given space. In addition to shooting it a high percentage from deep, he demonstrated that he has range as he pulled from well behind the high school 3 point line on multiple occasions. McIntyre is a high percentage shooter who lets it fly with a lot of confidence.

DJ Davis 6’0 PG 2020 Corona Centennial (The Truth)

While Davis’ change of pace impressed me, part of what makes him such a tough guard is his ability to shoot it from deep. Opposing teams have to pick up this quick guard, who goes from 0 to 100 in a hurry, well beyond the high school 3 due to his ability to let it fly off of the dribble and in catch and shoot situations.

Devan Sapp 6’3 SG 2020 Archbishop Mitty (The Truth)

Sapp added to the barrage of 3s that The Truth hit in their game against the Las Vegas Knicks. He is a versatile wing who is capable of doing more than shooting. However, being a consistent threat from deep aids him in being a weapon at all times. Further, it puts a lot of pressure on the opposing defense.

Jarred Hyder 6’3 PG 2019 Cajon (Team Eleate)

While Hyder did more than let it fly from deep, he hit big shots off of the dribble and in catch and shoot situations for Team Eleate. His ability to shoot the basketball pulled the defense out on multiple occasions. This enabled him to attack the rim and either score or pull help side defenders so that others could have success.

Donovan Cox 6’0 SG 2021 Rancho Christian (Gamepoint)

Cox, and the rest of Gamepoint, took a little while to get warmed up from deep. With that said, he has a quick and smooth shot. Moreover, he took good shots from deep. Part of what makes Gamepoint a tough team to play against is that they can all shoot. Cox is one of those shooters that opposing teams need to be aware of.
