This weekend we were in attendance at the Southern Jam Fest in Hampton, Virginia presented by Hoop Group. The Southern Jam Fest is annually one of the best events during the dead period and this year it followed previous years with tons of talent. Below we take a look at the All Southern Jam Fest First Team that the staff from Hoop Group selected.

Bishop has been having a nice spring for his K LOW team on the adidas gauntlet and is a reason why he has his team at 6-3. He is a combo guard that is a natural scorer and someone that can score in bunches. This weekend he was pretty much doing whatever he wanted on offense and was impressive on defense too while playing hard and being very vocal. He has been a great leader for his team while playing with tons of confidence. He is schedule to make an unofficial visit to Rhode Island next month.

2020 Henry Coleman | Team Loaded VA

Henry Coleman

Starting the spring playing on the 16U group, I was telling myself sooner rather than later this guy will move on up to the 17U level and surely enough that move was made. He has not disappointed while playing up. He has one of the best motors in the 2020 class and plays extremely hard on both ends of the ball. He excels at getting to the rim while bullying people with his muscle. We have been impressed with his defense as he chases down people for blocks and can lockdown multiple guys at different positions. Coleman is starting to be prioritized with many high major programs.

2019 Anwar Gill | DC Premier

This past season Gill was one of the best role players in the WCAC playing for Gonzaga but next year look for him to expand his role. Gill can shoot the ball, score inside and play good defense. He brings great versatility to the court standing at 6’4. His good basketball iq helps him on both sides of the ball. This spring he has picked up offers from Southern Utah and St. Bonaventure.

Scott is another guy that has a great motor and that was on full display this past weekend. He is a tough and gritty power forward standing at 6’7. We liked what we saw on the defensive side of the ball from him as he brings a lot of toughness to the court. He got to the rim off the dribble and was connecting on some nice jump shots too.

2020 Cam Thomas | Boo Williams

Cam Thomas

The 2020 guard has been having a breakout spring for Boo Williams. On the EYBL circuit he is averaging 20.2 points per game and continued that type of scoring this past weekend in Hampton. The rising junior has gotten a lot stronger which has allowed him to expand his scoring capabilities. He remains one of the top shooters in all of grassroots basketballs and this is why high major programs are all over him right now.

2019 Idan Tretout | New Heights

Tretout was the main reason why his team came back from a big deficit against Team Loaded VA in the quarterfinals as he finished with 27 points. Idan is impressive in transition and can finish strong at the rim. He can hit multiple three point shots during a game either from a catch and shoot attempt or from pulling up off the dribble. In my opinion Tretout is one of the most underrated players in his 2019 class.

2019 Isaiah Wong | WE R1

Arguably one of the top guards in Hampton this past weekend, his great combo guard skills were on full display. He scores the ball in a variety of ways while his jump shot has been efficient all spring as he currently is averaging 19.2 points per game on the UAA circuit. His vision was also looking good this weekend as he was finding open teammates for some of the better passing that I have seen from him.
