Day 2 of Nike EYBL Atlanta provided much talent at LakePoint Sports Complex. Many prospects made an impression by keeping their teams in games simply by knocking down shots. Here are the best shooters I saw at Nike EYBL Atlanta on day 2:
Adam Miller (Mac Irvin Fire)- Adam Miller (pictured) is a pure shooter. He is the best shooter I’ve seen at the tournament thus far. The lefty caught fire in the second half and singlehandedly kept his team in the game. Miller ended with 21 points on 7/9 shooting from three-point distance in a loss to AOT Running Rebels.
Brandon Boston (AOT Running Rebels)- Boston matched Miller’s shooting with some hot shooting of his own. The Norcross standout poured in 21 points in the first half, including 5 three-pointers. Boston also got to the rim and finished over defenders in the paint with ease. He reminds me a lot of a young Brandon Ingram with his length and should be an interesting prospect to watch grow in the next couple years.
Rocket Watts (The Family)- Watts was the best all-around guard I saw all day. He is smooth with the ball in his hands and dictates the speed of the game. Watts has a knack for drawing contact and got to the line multiple times throughout the game. He knocked down 6 threes and ended with a game-high 37 points. The 6’2 guard is definitely underrated and one to keep on the radar.
Frank Brooks (CIA Bounce)- Don’t let his size fool you, Brooks is a built like a linebacker but has nice touch on his jump shot. The forward knocked down three shots from long distance and scored 22 points in a loss to Mokan Elite. With his size and shooting ability, Brooks should make for a solid D2 prospect.
Kahlil Whitney (Mac Irvin Fire)- Whitney showed flashes of his shooting ability. He shoots the ball very well off the dribble for his size. The 6’7 rising senior can also get to the rim and had a few crowd-pleasing dunks when his shot was not falling. Whitney will stretch the floor very nicely at the next level.
