Another week, another slate of games in the Sinclair Summer League.
George Jenkins High played host to two close tilts on Monday night.
Kathleen 53, George Jenkins 46
Santa Fe Catholic 46, Lakeland 39
Here is a look at the standouts from the four teams.
Brendan Gant (Kathleen)
Originally an Alabama football commit, Brendan Gant has re-opened his recruitment. A stud safety on the gridiron, the 6’3″ 2019 athlete is a determined young man on the basketball court as well. He’s freakishly athletic. Gant opened the game against George Jenkins with a dunk off a steal. Hean shoot from outside, isn’t afraid to mix it up inside and takes pride in playing the big man role.
Reese Yothers-Jackson (Lakeland)
A transfer from Lake Gibson, Reese Yothers-Jackson is already making life easier for fellow 2019 forward Luke Anderson. The 6’8″ skinny and long forward was getting buckets to go at a high clip against Santa Fe Catholic. He was finding his way inside on nice cuts to the hoop and laying baskets in. He can be called upon defensively to block shots and can even hit a 3-pointer from time to time.
Javon Bell (Santa Fe Catholic)
The first half offensively wasn’t too pleasant to Javon Bell. However, the 2020 guard turned his game around in the second half, connecting on some long jumpers, including one from the top of the key with a hand in his face. He always comes to play defensively and that was noticeable tonight. The 6’4″ athlete blocked a shot high up into the last row of the bleachers.
Marvin Landy (George Jenkins)
A football player first, Marvin Landy is already turning the corner on the court for George Jenkins. The 2020 athlete plays with a purpose often. Landy gets inside, crashes the boards and uses his arms well as an attacker. The 6’2″ forward has room to really get strong if he works in the weight room.
Joe Stubbs (Santa Fe Catholic)
When Joe Stubbs puts his head down and goes inside on attacks, he’s awfully hard to stop. The 6’4″ 2020 guard/forward is packed with energy and loves to show off with dunks and highlight reel plays. He’s active on both ends of the floor and tends to make things happen off inbound passes. If Stubbs can work more on his attacks than flashy dunks, then he’ll really further his game to the next level.
