Irvine, Ca. — The Hoops By Ugland Skills Summit at Beckman high school featured 90-plus players from the classes of 2019 to 2022.
The event featured two hours worth of intense skill work, guest speakers with deep roots in the basketball community and camp games to close out the day.
Here is the second set of top performers from the classes of 2021 and 2022:
Donovan Cox, 2021, Rancho Christian
Cox has a smooth offensive game with his ability to knock down catch-and-shoot 3-pointers and pull-up mid-range jumpers. The 6-foot-1 guard can play both on or off the ball with his ability to create his own shot off the bounce or use screens to get himself open.
Everett May, 2021, Los Alamitos
May has the chance to be one of Orange County’s most prolific scorers come his senior year. The 6-foot-4 wing is wired to put the ball in the bucket, especially with his jump shooting ability. May’s form and touch are as pure as it gets and he has a no conscious approach to his shot selection. If May can pick his spots a little bit better, he’ll be a major force for Los Al this coming season.
Isaiah Harris, 2021, Citrus Hill
Harris possesses that prototypical Inland Empire toughness with a lot of game to go along with that. The 5-foot-11 point guard has impressive court vision in transition, moves the ball ahead with advance passes and can also pick apart defenses with his quickness and ball handling ability. Harris is a capable scorer, as well, with his crafty layup package in the paint.
Jahmai Mashack, 2021, Etiwanda
Mashack is a well-rounded prospect in the sense that he can do a little bit of everything well. The 6-foot-3 wing is a high IQ player on both ends of the floor and brings a defensive versatility that’s not always there for a young player. Offensively, Mashack showed improved touch from mid-range, but needs to continue to round out his game on that end of the floor.
Jason Hart II, 2022, Dorsey
Hart comes from great basketball bloodlines and he made that very clear with his performance. The 5-foot-11 lefty is as crafty as it gets with the ball in his hands and balances playmaking for himself and distributing to others with precision. Hart showed a crafty layup package on the event.
Jessie Campbell, 2021, Chula Vista Mater Dei
The best adjective to describe Campbell’s game is “active.” The 6-foot-2 point guard seemed to be everywhere on the floor. He was grabbing offensive and defensive rebounds, creating offensive opportunities for himself and his teammates and showed some grittiness on the defensive end. Campbell must improve on his perimeter shooting, especially his catch-and-shoot 3-pointer.
