The USF team camp started on Friday on campus between seven courts including the recently renovated Sun Dome.
Here are the top performers.
Anterrius Washington (Central Florida Christian)
A lengthy and athletic wing, Anterrius Washington is 6’5″ and always looking to attack the rim. He pushes the tempo, likes to finish strong and plays tough defense. An underrated athlete, Washington is oozing with breakout potential heading into his senior season at Central Florida Christian.
Braxton Bartlett (Oldsmar Christian)
It remains to be seen what the new look Oldsmar Christian team will be like come this fall, but right now 2019 guard Braxton Bartlett is hands down the best piece. Reliable as a ballhandler, confident and tough defensively, Bartlett lives to compete. His outside shot is impressive as well as his ability to create and attack.
Ivan Reynolds (Coral Springs Charter)
Coral Springs Charter is coming along with 2020 guard Ivan Reynolds serving as the true leader offensively. The 6’4″ guard is a good passer, who plays with vision, speed and true acceleration. He’s an athletic wing for his side.
Brandon Garcia (Somerset Prep)
Previously at Cypress Bay, 6’2″ 2020 guard Brandon Garcia is bringing offensive intensity to Somerset Prep. He’s a sneaky good attacker with a reliable mid-range game. Garcia is a very patient guard.
Khalil Shaheed (Superior Collegiate)
One of the newest additions to Super Collegiate, Khalil Shaheed is the top athlete for the Legion. The 6’2″ 2020 combo guard is blazing fast, can leap over defenders on dunks or layups and he has the potential in the world to be good at the next level. He certainly needs to process the game and take it a little slower coming down from Georgia Kennesaw Mountain.
Alan Cedeno (Ft. Myers Canterbury)
Canterbury is going to have size and tempo to its advantage down in Ft. Myers, but it is still early to see what the Cougars can do offensively. Perhaps the top shooter at their disposal is Alan Cedeno. The 5’10” 2021 guard is coming along defensively, but his seasoned jumper and ability to push the ball in transition are nice to watch.
Antwan Walker (Santa Fe Catholic)
Santa Fe Catholic welcomed Antwan Walker just this week. The 6’0″ 2020 guard joined the Hawks from Ridge Community. A fundamentally sound shooter, Walker ran the point on Friday for Santa Fe Catholic and he certainly held down the job well.
Raheem Empty (Auburndale)
6’8″ 2019 big man Isaiah Turner is back at Auburndale after transferring to a prep school in Georgia last season. However, he isn’t playing right now. This has opened up a chance for 6’6″ 2019 forward Raheem Empty to showcase his game. He’s long and skinny but is a nice mid-range shooter and a good attacker.
Desmond Williams (Alabama Brewbaker Tech)
Traveling all the way down from Alabama, Brew Tech wanted to compete with Florida schools. The Rams got into a dogfight with Leesburg in the an afternoon meeting that was close until the end. 2019 guard Desmond Williams flashed all day long for Brew Tech. The 6’0″ point guard is filled with handles, jumpers and smart decision making.
Johnny Brown (Mainland)
Mainland is filled with athletes who love to run the floor and score at will. 2019 6’8″ forward Johnny Brown continues to get better with time. He uses his body well as a fluid attacker and shot blocker. Brown can tend to settle for 3’s at times and can stand to be more aggressive with his length and athleticism.
Bonus: 2021 Countryside G Mikey Shane caught fire in an afternoon tilt with North Marion. He made six 3’s in a row at one point.
