  • Best 3-Day Performance
    • Tyrell Jones (Showtime Ballers)
      • The 6’2” point guard out of Orlando, Florida and West Oaks high school was the biggest beneficiary of the Super 6 Showcase put on by On the Radar Hoops. He is lightning quick in the open floor and works the pick and roll flawlessly in the half

        court. He is crafty with either hand and gets in the lane consistently off the bounce for tough finishes. His three point shot is quick and well above average, as he can get it off on any defender regardless of size. What I love about Jones is his ability to make those better around him. He made the right plays all weekend whether it was lobs, quick dishes to the perimeter off his penetration, and from a hustle standpoint point diving for loose balls late in games. Jones is the real deal at the point guard position and his recent flood of offers has shown it, gaining them from schools such as Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Xavier this live period alone.

        • Runner-Up: Team South Carolina
  • Best Performance
    • Elias King (ATL Hoops vs B Maze Elite)
      • Xavier commit Elias King already is already a name familiar with those in the Peach State. The rivals top 100 rising senior out of Lincoln Prep is 6’8” and can play 1-4 position wise on the floor. He exploded for 40 points in an overtime win over B Maze Elite, including eight three point field goals. King is able to get his shot over any defender and looked good attacking the basket and finishing at the rim once he got downhill. He can play off the ball and be a serviceable knockdown shooter or get into the lane once he gets the ball off the dribble drive. He has big time potential at the next level and his performance in one of the best games at the showcase showed what he is capable of doing when that time comes.
        • Runner-Up: Justin Moore (Team Takeover vs Atlanta Xpress)
  • Breakout Performer
    • Deivon Smith (Atlanta Celtics)
      • Smith is one of the most athletic guards you will see in the 2020 class, no matter the size. The 6’ rising junior out of Grayson high school is one of the more aggressive attackers and finishers of the rim that I’ve seen at the point guard position. He is a chore to defend one on one, using a nice mid-range game off the dribble, effective shot off the catch from three, and had some of the most impressive blocks on the defensive end as any prospect present. His speed is something you cannot prepare for as he constantly puts the defense at a big time disadvantage especially surrounding him with perimeter shooters. Smith performed well in every match-up at the Super 6 Session II Showcase against big time teams and playing up with the rest of his Celtics teammates in the 17U division. Old Dominion University is the latest to offer.

        • Runner-Up: Marvin Robertson (Louisiana Elite)
  • Top Sleeper
    • Quincy Olivari (ATL Hoops)
      • Having witnessed the entire match-up between ATL Hoops and B Maze Elite, the 40 point performance from King was impressive but the consistent play from Olivari allowed ATL Hoops to come away with that victory as well. He finished the game with 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 steals which included the game winning lay-up with two seconds remaining. He took on the task of guarding B Maze Elite’s best player, Jaden Springer, and is the ultimate two-way player every time out. He has good size at 6’3” and has big time bounce which was evident with his transition finishes above the rim. Coaches watching this specific game or any of Olivari’s games will enjoy what he brings and those abilities should lead to more offers for the rising senior out of Westlake high school. Olivari, who is also a Merit scholar in the classroom, currently holds offers from Charleston Southern and Clayton State.
        • Runner-Up: Walyn Napper (Team South Carolina)
  • Best Shooter
    • DeAndre Brown (Atlanta Xpress)
      • Brown is a lefty that ripped the nets all weekend at Super 6 Session II. The 6’2” Holy Spirit Prep off guard has a smooth release from three point range and his Atlanta Xpress teammates did a good job of finding him for looks to put that release on display. Brown can also knock down shots off the dribble and his pull-up game was legitimate in transition or the half court. He has the ability to walk into his three point shot and had impressive makes off crossover step backs when sizing up his defender and initially driving to the rim. Brown is a consistent shot maker that should benefit this prep season playing with new teammate and 5-Star 2020 prospect Anthony Edwards.
        Josh Oduro
        Josh Oduro

        • Runner-Up: Justin Powell (Atlanta Celtics)
  • Top Post Presence
    • Josh Oduro (Team Takeover)
      • Overshadowed by the inside presence of teammates Armando Bacot and Hunter Dickinson, I thought Oduro had just as good a weekend as any big man prospect at Super 6 Session II. He looked good on the low block, getting the ball on either side and finishing with either hand over both shoulders. He has the ability to run the floor and sneaky athleticism to finish above the rim. Oduro has soft hands to handle interior passes in traffic and can take defenders off the dribble 15 feet away from the basket. He can knock down perimeter shots and his footwork as well as passing ability from anywhere on the floor is something that cannot go unnoticed. The rising 6’8” senior out of Paul VI high school in Virginia is a nice prospect and one that has received recent offers from William & Mary, Rice, and George Mason.
        • Runners-Up: Handje Tamba (B Maze Elite) and Tremar Fraley (Team RWA)
  • Top Floor General
    • Giovanni Santiago (Team RWA)
      • Santiago is a member of the Puerto Rico national team for his age group and it was easy to see why at the Super 6
        Giovanni Santiago

        Session II Showcase. He is a smooth operating point guard that initiated the Team RWA offense with ease. He can effect the game without scoring, which he did on a number of occasions, but wasn’t afraid to put his mark on games with his shot making ability as well. He is a 6’ lefty that plays with great pace, not allowing faster players and teams to speed him up. He knows how to work the pick and roll and can finish with either hand in traffic. His shot selection was impeccable and he simply understands the flow of the game knowing when to hit the right teammate at the right time. His pull-up mid range jumper from the elbow was his most effective shot but he can get hot from the perimeter as he had an impressive string of consecutive shot making possessions from deep, making on ball defenders look silly in the process. Santiago is headed to Hargrave Military Academy but does hold an offer from Frank Martin and the University of South Carolina.

        • Runner-Up: Chase Hunter (Atlanta Xpress)
  • Biggest Upside
    • Jaden Springer (B Maze Elite)
      • Springer, who currently holds several high major offers, is a prospect that thrives in every facet on the basketball floor. He is smooth in his offensive attack, tenacious in his defensive ability, and calm during times of duress. He can get it done on every level with the ball in his hands and at 6’4” has length to finish against shorter defenders and the strength to finish against those taller than him at the rim. He has elite athleticism and his second and third jump allow him to score even off initial misses. He can break you down off the dribble and even possesses a James Harden like step back that he made on a number of occasions at Super 6 Session II. What I love most about Springer is his willingness to take on the opposing teams’ best player and doing so without fouling. What is most impressive about Springer is that he is only 15 years of age with plenty of time to improve on the very few holes in his game. He is a silent assassin and in two years the Charlotte native should be on his way to a high major program making an impact at the collegiate level.

        • Runners-Up: Anthony Edwards (Atlanta Xpress) and Armando Bacot (Team Takeover)
  • Most Versatile
    • Dontavious King (Team EAT)
      • King is a 6’7” hybrid forward that enjoyed a great week during the second July live period. He can do a lot of different things on the offensive end and can do it against multiple defenses. He has good athleticism to have an impact on the glass but also possesses the skill to lead the fast break off his own rebound and make the right play to lead to points off that break. King is a legit shot blocker and when his motor is running was the beneficiary of several chase down blocks for Team EAT. The rising senior from Dutchtown high school is one you can put in the middle going against a zone defense and not have to worry about many negative plays occurring. He showed his ability to step out and hit mid-range as well as three point shot which kept him in double figures all weekend long. His versatility has brought in recent offers from schools such as Murray State, College of Charleston, and Buffalo and with a solid senior season he should see more coming his way.
