The annual E1T1 Invitational took place this weekend at both The Big House and CPS Sportsplex.
There were teams from grades 4th-11th that filled the courts and fans were packed in to watch the event unfold.
Here is the third part of the top performers I watched this weekend in Orlando.
Corey Walker (Bishop Snyder/Game Elite)
Always creating and attacking, 2020 Bishop Snyder forward Corey Walker continues to play beyond his years. For Game Elite this weekend, he fought through contact early and often and games and wasn’t afraid to pull the trigger from outside. At 6’7″, Walker is strong and determined and college programs are watching him intently every time he hits the floor.
Lance Erving (Leesburg/E1T1)
For Leesburg, Lance Erving takes his turn being the guy and he’ll have to do that this upcoming season as a 2019 starter and top scorer. With E1T1, the 6’1″ guard is part of a deep group of guards and athletes. Erving is a confident shooter and has a knack for distributing some tough passes to open up lanes for his teammates.
Jace Carter (Astronaut/E1T1)
Part of a deep and up and coming E1T1 15U group, Jace Carter routinely made plays for his group. The 6’2″ Astronaut guard has a soft touch near the basket whether that comes with his mid-range jumpers or floaters. This kid is not close to done growing and his instincts are through the roof.
Robert Gomez (Nature Coast/Balkman Elite)
Quietly, Robert Gomez plays his tail off defensively on opposing team’s best shooters. The 6’4″ guard thrives as a spot up shooter, but I was beyond impressed with his added effort on the defensive end of the ball. A 2019 guard and leader for Nature Coast, Gomez is taking advantage of key playing time for Balkman Elite already this summer.
Antwan Burnett (Alabama Sidney Lanier/Team Nightyrdas)
A true two-sport athlete, 2020 Sidney Lanier’s Antwan Burnett dominates on the football field as a wide receiver as he holds offers from Alabama, Georgia and Florida already. You can see his speed come to fruition on the basketball court as he routinely blows past defenders with his ridiculous speed. The 6’4″ guard was one of the quickest players I’ve seen in quite some time.
