The Mayhem in the Plex had plenty of talent and recruitable prospects in attendance. There were a couple of kids in particular who did well for themselves and had multiple media members and fans at their games to watch them perform. Here are my takeaways of those players below:
All-around point guards that can score it and create at a high level for others are hard to find nowadays. Kids in this day and age are more concerned with getting buckets rather than creating shots for others. Ricky Lujan of the New Mexico D1 Ambassadors is the definition of a point guard that has multiple dimensions in his game that college coaches pray for in a player. Lujan proved this past weekend that he is a division one caliber prospect.
Don’t let his Size Fool You!
Basketball players who usually have successful high school careers and get recruited to play at the college level typically have ideal height at their position. C.J. Booker definitely does not have the ideal height for his position but he is definitely one of the most talented point guards in the state for his class regardless of his lack of size. Booker was on fire all weekend and when he wasn’t scoring from three, he was throwing dimes to open teammates.
Auston Chatman has the tools to be really good at the next level
Auston Chatman is a 6-foot-5 2019 wing with good offensive ability that allows him to score the ball in a variety of ways. Chatman is currently flirting with the idea of going postgrad but may end up attending junior college after the grassroots season. His decision will be based upon fit.
