Bull City Prep, Open Gym, Wednesday September 19 – Part 1
I drove the one hour trip to Chapel Hill to watch Bull City Prep in their 6-8:00 workout, this past Wednesday September 19.
After transition drills and skill work, Coach Darryl Harris organized open gym play.
Blake Wilson, pictured above, is a 6-7 forward from Gastonia, North Carolina. Blake was the most impressive prospect that I sawat the Bull,City workout. Blake averaged 18 plus points and six plus rebounds per game, as a senior at Huss High School in Gastonia last year, leading the school to an 18-6 win-loss record.
I like Blake’s upside. He’s a good athlete, who runs really well. He has a good feel for the game. His skills include a nice stroke from the perimeter. He also gets buckets on drives from the half court and nice finishes in transition. He is also is a skilled and willing passer.
Coach Harris has two very solid point guards, in:
Markel Aune and Jaison Parker. Both of these young men, though small in statue, are very effective point guards.
Markel Aunt is a solidly built 5-8 175, pure point guard from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Markel is very strong with the ball and has good vision. He is a pinpoint passer. He’s also an excellent shooter from the perimeter and an aggressive defender. Jaison Parker is a 5-8 165 point guard from Raleigh. I had previously seen Jaison playing AAU ball with WCBA, two summers ago. He’s very solid with the ball and he has good vision He dishes the rock really well and he’s a solid shooter as well.
Bull City has a quarter of players from West Ashley High School in Charleston, South Carolina. One of the Charleston Four is Randel Litmon.
Randel Litmon, a 6-5 190, forward is a long and lean lefty, who is a very solid player and a good athlete. Randel rebounds really well and he uses long arms and quick feet to guard effectively, both in the post and on the perimeter. He runs the court really well and he finishes effectively. The young man is an effective scorer in the low post, where he uses his length and nice touch to score. He also can step out and hit from 15-16 feet.
