This past weekend in OKC it was very noticeable how many players were able to make their living down low in the paint. This article breaks down the top scorers on the block.
Desmon Elliot 2019 Servants Post
Elliot was a pleasant surprise at the Prep Hoops Southern Brawl in Oklahoma City. He stands at 6’7 on the block with great hands. The soft touch Elliot has around the rim is phenomenal. Elliot is a sure-fire college projected player with his height and skills on the block. He could help a small college program at the four or five depending upon the system.
Quentin Harvey 2019 Ball 4 Life Wing
Harvey is a long, lanky 6’6 3/4 tweeter. He projects to the Wing in college with his ability to shoot the rock solid from deep. It was his scoring inside around the basket that led to the majority of his points. He does a good job using his length to finish strong in traffic. Harvey projects to the small college level.
Michal Wooldridge 2022 Ferguson Elite Post
Wooldridge used his height at 6’7 to give opponents trouble with some nice scoring moves inside. He was great at moving without the ball to set him up to be able to get good looks inside. The more I watch Wooldridge the more he seems to progress in his game each time out. He could develop into quite the player over his four years of high school.
Tabry Shettron 2022 405 Elite Forward
Shettron already stands around 6’2 in the paint. He has a good motor that helps him to rebound the ball well. What made him one of the best scorers in the paint was his jumper from around 10 feet away and his athleticism scoring around the rim.
Andrew Keathley 2019 Game Changer Hoops Post
Keathley is quietly becoming one of the best low post scorers in the 2019 Oklahoma Class. He projects to the NCAA Division II level with his size, strength, and toughness. Game Changer Hoops uses Keathley as a reliable option when they feed the paint. The efficacy Keathley plays with inside is off the charts.
Kaylon Finley 2019 Heat Elite Forward
Finley is super athletic playing as the big guy for Heat Elite. They use him as a Forward mainly on defense and a tweener on offense. Finley finished extremely well inside for Heat Elite using his athleticism. He delivered multiple big-time jams.
Anfernee Nelson 2020 Rockets 918 Wing
Nelson projects to college as a Wing with his ability to shoot the basketball. In the summer time Nelson plays a lot of his minutes in the paint, which has helped him develop some crafty low post moves. Nelson finished really well this weekend even in traffic.
