The Elite 14 Showcase is one of the best high school events in the country. The Prep Hoops team traveled Denton to cover the first day of the event. Here are some of the player that stood out:
Jake Milkereit / 6’4” / SG / Bishop Lynch / 2020
Jake had arguably the best day one performance at the Elite 14 Showcase. He knocked down jumpers in multiple ways and moved well when he did not have ball in his hands. Known for being able to shoot it off the catch, I was equally impressed to see that he was comfortable shooting it off the bounce. He displayed athleticism as well when he had a breakaway dunk at the end of the game that blew spectators away.
Arthur Kaluma / 6’7” / SF / Universal Academy / 2021
Kaluma is starting to become a household name in the Lonestar state. The talented forward had a very quiet spring and did not open a lot of people’s eyes until a couple of weeks ago at the Pangos All-South Camp where he was nominated as the camps’ Most Outstanding Player. Arthur showed on Friday that he can also perform at a high level in a structured setting as well. Against top 10 nationally ranked Sunrise Christian Academy, Arthur showed off his athleticism and ability to create opportunities for himself off the dribble on the wing and score in transition. He has a chance to be a Top 100 player in the country if he continues to play the way he’s been playing.
Jaylin Jackson-Posey / 6’3” / SG / Universal Academy / 2020
Posey is a lean guard that knows how to get by defenders with slick handles. Runs the pick and roll well and does a good job of taking advantage of the mismatch if a bigger player switches on him. Good shooter with strong athleticism and doesn’t mind locking up on the defensive end.
