Here is the 2nd set of top performers from our Top 250 camp this past Saturday. These guys all impressed throughout the day and a few were in contention for 1st team honors.
2019 CG Malik Battle (Alexander)- One thing I’ve always appreciated about Battle is that I know what to expect out of him every time he plays. Saturday was no different. Battle is just wired to score and takes what the defense gives him. He got going at camp by getting to the basket early and often, and then mixed in pull-up jumpers when the defense adjusted to his slashing ability. I have emphasized his competitive spirit and intense mentality before, but I think that is a quality that shouldn’t be taken for granted in today’s game. Battle is ready for a big senior season after making the move over to Alexander and should start to receive more attention from college programs.
2019 PF Ahmir Langlais (Holy Spirit)- Langlais made his mark with an assertive, well-rounded game at camp. He left his imprint on the paint, but also made sure to put his perimeter skills on display. Langlais would not be stopped going to the basket, moving bodies and hammering home dunks. He knocked down jumpers off the dribble and even took the ball coast to coast a few times. Langlais came into the camp as one of the more highly regarded players in attendance and his performance showed why. He’ll have the chance to prove himself even further this winter with a loaded schedule at Holy Spirit.
2019 PF James Glisson (Southwest Dekalb)- Like Langlais, Glisson is a forward who displays a traditional post game but also has no issue showing his versatility. Not many players were able to match him physically at camp; one bump inside and he usually got a clean look. Glisson is more athletic than he may appear at first glance and has nice touch when he can’t get all the way to the basket. His ability to step out for face-up jumpers from both mid-range and behind the arc. Wofford jumped in as his 2nd offer the day after camp; don’t be surprised if he starts to hear more from similar level programs.
2019 PG Mitch Ganote (Lambert)- Ganote’s camp team was well-suited for his unselfish style of play as he teamed up with Mekhail Bethea, fellow Lambert Longhorn Luke Champion, and others. He found his teammates time and time again throughout the day, hitting guys with impressive passes quite often. Ganote made sure to get his own buckets as well, converting on crafty shots and seeking out contact in the paint. Ganote has one of the best all-around games for a guard in the state, making a significant impact on both ends every game. Lots of schools have been in at Lambert workouts recently so it will be interesting to see who starts to pursue him the hardest.
2019 F Devin Evans (Duluth)- Evans is a true combo-forward at about 6’7” with the ball-handling ability and fluid movements that allow him to be effective on the perimeter. He shoots the ball confidently and has an impressive stroke for a prospect of his size. Evans is an active rebounder, especially on the offensive glass and converts on second chance opportunities frequently. He has some wiry strength to him and his length allows him to finish when going against stronger defenders. Evans is a prospect who should have lots of eyes on him throughout the season because of his multi-dimensional game and because of what he could become at the next level.
2021 PF Robbie Armbrester (Therrell)- If you watched Armbrester on Saturday, you wouldn’t have been able to tell that he was one of the younger prospects in attendance. He was a physical force inside, throwing older guys around like it was nothing. Armbrester’s effort down-low was nonstop, getting his own rebound 2 or 3 times in a single possession until he got it to go down. He gets up to the rim easily, moves well, and can face-up and slash from 15 feet. Not many sophomores have the physical tools and motor that Armbrester possesses.
