The always busy ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex was filled with high school level basketball at the AAU Super Showcase on Saturday.
Here is a look at the best performances I saw.
ICYMI: Day 2
Luke Anderson (Lakeland/Team Knight)
Grabbing boards, driving and finishing, 2019 Lakeland forward Luke Anderson did it all for Team Knight. The 6’7″ forward is always ahead and running on the break. Anderson made a few tough 3’s with hands in his face. He continues to mature and it showed with his big first half in a loss to All Ohio.
Jonathan Renois (Somerset Academy/Team Knight)
A sound and reliable floor setter, 2021 guard Jonathan Renois really held his own on the day. The 5’11” Somerset Academy athlete is a quick-witted point man who likes to mix it up as an attacker and get his teammates involved often.
Kaleb Coleman (Oak Ridge/MOAM)
It has been quite a month for 2019 Oak Ridge forward Kaleb Coleman. Division II programs love his effort and ability to stretch the floor and Division I schools are calling him due to that and his 6’7″ frame. Look for Coleman’s stock to increase further as he moves into a starting role for the Pioneers in the fall.
Eric Brown (Sebring/Team Knight)
Playing with a Team Knight Mix group, Sebring forward Eric Brown flashed his pure speed. The 6’5″ 2020 athlete is a shooter at heart. He proved to be a true mid-range guy on the afternoon and that should take him a long way.
Jordin Jackson (Impact Christian/Team Parsons)
On a fast and scrappy Team Parsons 16U Mix group, Jordin Jackson does his part and more. The 5’9″ 2020 guard found his groove as a steady passer and leader. Jackson, an Impact Christian guard had his mid-range game was on point. He’s a truly unselfish and fun player to watch.
Tyler Harris (St. Pete Catholic/St. Pete Heat)
The game didn’t go St. Pete Heat’s way in a loss to Team M.O.A.M., however, Tyler Harris showed off one key attribute. A 5’10” 2019 guard, Harris made it clear he’d use his passing as a strength. He was crisp as a passer and when he attacked, he drew contact inside, something he should do plenty in games this season at St. Pete Catholic.
