Here is a look at the top Class of 2020 players from last weekend’s Lindenwood University Team Camp in St. Charles, MO.
Jaylen Boyd 6’0″ Ladue
One of the top 2020 point guards in the STL area, Boyd continues to improve and add to his game. He has added an improve from stroke from 3-point range to compliment his very effective drive game. He has also improved his athleticism, which has been on display with a few explosive slam dunks over people with both ends that were quite impressive. He continues to get bigger and stronger physically as well.
Dylan Branson 6’5″ Mehlville
The physical combo guard put in some solid work during the weekend before injuring his ankle late Friday night. He was dominant in a victory over Jennings as his all-around versatile game was on display. He has the ability to buffalo smaller defenders in the post or when he plays bully-ball in getting to the basket. His perimeter jumper was also working as he created the space and knocked down step-backs with regularity. He is also a very adept passer.
Evan Schneider 6’6″ Ladue
A very physical power forward who loves to play bumper-cars around the basket. He also displayed some finesse throughout the weekend as the Rams played a bigger lineup, which gave him some chances to roam the perimeter. He handled the ball well and hit some mid-range jumpers off the catch. He is a very active player who finished well in the low post.
Patrick Readye 6’7″ Althoff
A big bodied post player with a solid set of skills in the low post. He does a good job of catching the ball and he displayed good footwork and a nice shooting touch around the basket. He can score underneath or he could step out and knock down a 15 footer. His fundamentals are pretty good and he his game has even more room for growth.
LsShawn Johnson 6’3″ East St. Louis
An athletic wing player who really makes plays and seems to be constantly around the basketball. He is an excellent offensive rebounder who does an excellent job of getting to loose balls and getting into passing lanes to create turnovers. His high motor enables him to impact the game without getting a lot of touches.
Carson Parker 6’7″ Montgomery County
A very intriguing small-school post player who I got a chance to see for the first time. He is a hard worker who really battles around the basket, even if it means fighting two or three other players for a loose ball or rebound. He will find a way to get the ball in the basket, even if it means giving a second or third effort.
Gary Clark 6’6″ Cardinal Ritter
An improving young post player who has grown a couple of inches in the past year and his game has continued to grow as well. He plays a finesse game with a nice shooting touch around the basket and good mobility up and down the court. His upside is still quite high for further improvement.
