Imo Essien / 6’0″ / PG / Bishop Lynch / 2021
Imo is a charismatic player, one of the most humble young men you will ever meet on and off the court, is a good floor general and understands how to play with pace at the point guard position. At the Pangos camp he showed his playmaking ability and finished floaters over bigger players. Imo is young but still has a resume of being a winner, his grassroots team won the 15u Nike Peach Jam.
K.J. Adams / 6’6″ / SF / Austin Westlake / 2021
Four-star K.J. Adams is the most physically ready player in the state if not the class, he looks like a man amongst boys the way he bullies his way to the rim for explosive dunks. Has a killer first step that allows him to attack the basket with ease and a good rebounder, who helps his team get a lot of second chance opportunities. Kj and Arthur Kaluma were the two MVP’S of the top 30 game, which is no shocker especially after watching the two dominate the Pangos.
Joseph Venzant / 6’3″ / SG / Midland Christian / 2021
This kid has a good mix of speed and quickness, can play the point or the two depending on what you need him to do. Venzant is the kind of kid that you know regardless who he’s about to play against he is going to play hard and compete at high level. He had some pretty decent team camp games where he displayed all of his intangibles, but it and the Top 30 game he instantly went into killer mode and was hard to stop.
Chris Marshall / 6’2″ / SG / Thurgood Marshall / 2022
Marshall isn’t scared of anyone and no matter who’s guarding him his demeanor stays the same. This shifty guard is under control and uses angles very well when attacking, knows how to use his lateral quickness on offense and on defense. Chris Marshall was one of the best on the ball defenders at the camp and if he continues to play at a high level on both ends of the floor he has a chance to be a Top 5 player in the state for his class.
