Here is a look at some of the top Class of 2020 standouts from last weekend’s SEMO Elite Camp in Cape Girardeau, MO.
Phillip Russell 5’11” Vashon
The talented floor leader had an excellent day with his combination of 3-point shooting and decision making. He can play either guard spot because of his ability to knock down 3-pointers and penetrate and score in the lane while still being able to facilitate the offense. In the last game of the day, he took over down the stretch with two consecutive 3-pointers and a nice dime to set up a game-winning basket. He recently received his first Division I offer from Valparaiso.
Tyrus Reddin 5’8″ Cape Girardeau Central
The little guy who plays much bigger than his actual size. He is a very athletic point guard with excellent speed and burst in the open court. His quick first step enabled him to get to the basket with ease, plus he has the ability to change speeds and keep defenders off balance. He also has a nice pull up game. He is really working to improve him perimeter shot to make himself even more effective.
Dylan Branson 6’5″ Mehlville
The big bodied wing player had a very productive day on offense with his ability to get buckets in the post or outside where knocked down jumpers and scored on physical drives. He has shot the ball much better from 3-point range during the final two weeks of June. He is a pinpoint passer who also plays well without the basketball.
Rashad McDaniels 5’11” Trinity
The burly point guard displayed some nice moments on the defensive end with his quick hands, which enabled him to pick pockets and strip opposing bigs inside. He displayed his versatility on the offensive end with his ability to break down defenders off the dribble while going inside and posting up against smaller guards and using his physical strength.
Caleb Zurliene 6’3″ Breese Mater Dei (IL)
The small town Illinois guard had a solid elite camp with his good size and versatility. He displayed a nice stroke from 3-point range while playing a solid overall game. He handled the ball well and did a good job of passing the basketball and moving without the ball.
