  • Isaiah Adams (2020) – Paxon HS (FL)
    • Adams is a lanky 6’6” wing that can handle the basketball out on the perimeter and initiated several fast breaks off his own defensive rebound. He showed great slashing ability and smooth left handed stroke from the mid-range area at Leonard Hamilton team camp this past weekend. The Paxon guard and Jacksonville native has big time athleticism that he put on display in transition, punishing defenders as they attempted to contest his finishes above the rim. Adams is coming off an offer from Florida Atlanta University this weekend and more should be on the way if he continues his play during the July live period.
  • Jeremiah Tisme (2019) – Gainesville HS (FL)
    • Tisme has great size at 6’10” and I loved his motor this weekend for a talented Gainesville squad. The blocking and altering of shots was evident, but his dominance on the glass, on both ends, was consistent and his ability to keep the ball alive off bad misses and missed free throws allowed for a number of extra possessions for his team which were beneficial down the stretch in close games. Tisme has received offers and interest from schools such as North Florida, Stetson, Florida Gulf Coast, and Troy.
  • Devin Phillips (2020) – Confluence Prep Academy (MO)
    • Phillips is the lead guard for Confluence Prep Academy this season and the St. Louis native didn’t disappoint over the weekend in Tallahassee. He is a blur in the open floor and his one dribble pull-up kept his defenders off balance in the half court. I enjoyed the approach in Phillips’ game, wasting no time in his decision making scoring wise and when he wants to get down hill he can get into the lane to make plays quickly also. Going against a man or zone, Phillips remained aggressive and it made for an impressive showing this weekend.
  • Joshua Lusane (2019) – Americus-Sumter HS (GA)
    • Lusane showed great strength and skill in the post this past weekend at FSU team camp and looked comfortable leading the way offensively for Americus-Sumter. He can post up, face up and his ability to put the ball on the deck gives him an advantage against slower, weaker big men. He has a good touch around the rim and an above average floater with soft hands to finish plays from guard penetration. Coming off a 15.7 ppg and 7.9 rpg junior season average, Lusane will be looking to boost those numbers for his senior year and FSU camp was a good sign in taking a step in that direction.
  • AJ Neal (2021) – West Oaks Academy (FL)
    • A key piece on the best team at FSU camp was rising sophomore AJ Neal. West Oaks Academy won ten games overall, taking home the championship at team camp and he was a big reason why, averaging over 20ppg this weekend. He has big time range from the outside and a good handle to break down defenders to get the ball to talented teammates on the wing and interior. I love his aggression and while only entering his second summer as a high school prospect, his confidence as well as knowledge of the game allows everything to slow down for him when out on the floor. He holds offers from Ole Miss, South Florida, and UMass with and playing with the Showtime Ballers in the Adidas Gauntlet, July should be another good month for the sophomore.
AJ Neal scored 27 points in the championship game Sunday at FSU team camp.
