Nike Elite 100 continued on Saturday with three sessions of hoops including two that featured games. Here are the players that stood out the most to PrepHoopsIllinois and the PrepHoops Network at the camp that features the premier 2020s and 2021s in the nation.
SG Moses Moody (North Little Rock HS, AR – 2020)
Moody continued to tear up Elite 100 on Saturday. The 6’5” shooting guard has proven to be one of the truly elite offensive talents nationally this spring and early summer. Special shooter that drilled them again from all over the floor connecting from three off the catch and pulling up. Displayed more to his game though mixing in several tough drives and was very active defensively.
G Darius Maddox (St. John’s College, MD – 2020)
Maddox is a long and rangy combo guard that gets to the rim consistently. He handles it well off the bounce with his burst of speed. Pull up jump shot was on point throughout and also displayed some quickness sneaking in for an offensive rebound put back.
SF Obinna Anyanwu (Cathedral Catholic, CA – 2021)
Anyanwu is a high energy small forward at 6’6” that is super explosive in transition. He attacks with force and also drilled a top of the key three. Where he might have stood out the most however was defensively. Moves well laterally staying in front of his man and swats shots from the wing spot!
C Jordan Wilmore (Faith Heritage Christian Academy, TN – 2020)
Wilmore is the biggest player at the camp at about 7’2”. He is a little slow footed, but the kid really competes rebounding well in his area and plays hard on the defensive end. He has a nice right handed hook shot. Commands deep post position.
C Mady Sissoko (Wasatch Academy, UT – 2020)
Sissoko is a 6’8” big man that is insanely strong. He is a big time rebounder on both ends of the floor. Gobbles rebounds up! Quality shot blocker on the defensive end and threw down a pair of powerful jams. Like this kids developmental upside.
SG Malachi Wideman (Riverview HS, FL – 2021)
This 6’4” shooting guard might be the premier athlete in a camp full of them! Off the charts vertical leap and he knows how to use it on both ends of the floor. What really stood out was what he did defensively with his length and anticipation. Tons of steals and blocked shots from the guard spot. Offensively his jumper needs work as does his shot selection, but he can score off the bounce and play above the rim with explosion!
PF Isaiah Cottrell (Bishop Gorman HS, NV – 2020)
This 6’9” post impressed with his ability to score with his back to the basket. Right handed hook shot was on point. He carves out deep post position and that makes it easier for him to score once he gets the touch. Solid skill level on the block. Very good rebounder. Runs the floor. Even hit a three.
SF Cade Cunningham (Bowie HS, TX – 2020)
Cunningham is in the top performers again….shocking! He has been dominant all week. The 6’6” wing won his head to head matchup with Brandon Boston by using his strength to overpower his fellow five star. Sound jump shooter. What stood out the most was his passing. He was an excellent decision maker with the ball on Saturday night finding his teammates.
C Frank Kepnang (The Macduffie School, MA – 2021)
The best big here in my opinion. The 6’10” big man is built like a five year NBA pro with his upper body strength. He is college ready right now physically! Elite shot blocker with timing and he keeps the ball inbounds when he does swat them. Tremendous rebounder that grabs them both in and out of his area. Showed some skill with a couple hook shots and big dunks.
F Jamari Sibley (Nicolet HS, WI – 2020)
Sibley is a combo forward that we have seen play mostly on the interior with Phenom University, but he displayed quite a bit of perimeter shooting on Saturday. Connected on three triples in the game we saw. Looked comfortable letting it fly from deep especially off the catch. Mixed in one offensive rebound put back. Would have liked to seen more activity with his bounciness. Pogo stick type jumper.
G Symir Torrence (Vermont Academy, NY – 2020)
Torrence is an athletic combo guard that hits runners in the lane. He is at his best scoring off the bounce. Did hit one three in the game we saw. Definitely more of a slasher though.
SF Myles Stute (Gonzaga HS, DC – 2020)
Stute is a crafty scorer that has a thick body. He scored on some tough takes to the rim with spins and using his superior strength over weaker wings. Good looking shot from deep as well.
SF Julian Strawther (Liberty HS, NV – 2020)
The consensus top 25 national recruit had his best game of the event late Saturday night. Shot lights out from deep with threes from the wings and drilling pull ups. Jumper was scorching hot! When it is falling he is a problem!
