2019 Nike E15/E16- The first day of 2019 was held on Friday at Allatoona High School. Many high school prospects impressed with their play and caught the attention of college coaches during the much anticipated live period. Here is who stood out on Day 1 of 2019 Nike E15/E16:
Jonathan Sterling (Albany City Rocks)– Jonathan Sterling is well-advanced for his age level. He is a smooth scorer who scores from all three levels with ease. He highly impressed with his shot-making, passing, and court vision. Sterling is always in attack mode and has a little New York flavor in his game, similar to that of Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford. Sterling finished with 28 points in a hard-fought loss to New York Lightning.
Jordan Walsh (Drive Nation)- Jordan Walsh (pictured) is a slasher with great length and a high motor. He was very effective at the top of press as his activity forced many turnovers. Walsh also has great ball skills as he possesses a solid handle and great floor vision. Despite being only 14 years old, Walsh is already a solid division 1 prospect. He finished with 14 points in a win over Houston Hoops.
Julian Brown (New York Lightning)– Brown is a solid up-and-coming combo guard on the EYBL circuit. He is a streaky shooter who can heat up quickly from three-point distance. Brown led his team with 3 threes in the first half and finished with 23 points for the game.
Orlando Horton, Jr. (Houston Hoops)– Horton is a small guard with a big heart. He is a pest on defense who forces many turnovers by giving the extra effort. Offensively, he finished well over bigs with floaters in the lane and even knocked down a few impressive shots from deep. Horton’s activity provided a much-needed spark for Houston Hoops.
Skyy Clark (SFG)– With all attention on Bronny James and LeBron in attendance, Skyy Clark stole the show. The 2022 guard was in attack mode and finished with a game-high 30 points. He got into the lane at will and also finished very well on the break. Skyy Clark is an elite guard who could open a lot of eyes if he continues his impressive play on the EYBL circuit. The sky is the limit for Clark.
