I took the trip up to the University of North Florida for a one day stop at their annual team camp.
Seven total games caught my eyes on a busy opening Thursday of the four-day camp.
Here is who stood out.
Jacob Crews (Hilliard)
Looking right at home in his future gym, 2020 6’6″ Hilliard forward Jacob Crews was a scoring machine on the day. He was by far the best pure scorer in the UNF Arena on Thursday. Verbally committed to UNF, Crews was superb in transition play with his ballhandling, moves off the ball, stretch shooting and all around attacks. A fierce competitor, Crews commands so much attention on both ends of the floor. He’s a flat out steal for UNF.
Beza Miller (Episcopal)
Only a rising freshman, 2023 5’11” Episcopal guard Beza Miller has a calmness about his game. He’s very intelligent, patient with the ball in his hands and is a sneaky good attacker for his thin frame. Miller is going to only get better with more responsibility and playing time. His upside is there and I expect him to have a big season as a scoring threat and passer.
Ben McGraw (Bolles)
Perhaps the most natural outside touch shooter in attendance at UNF, 2022 6’2″ Bolles guard Ben McGraw has a great form on his 3-point shot and is able to burn defenses with his quick release. Clearly not done growing in height, he’s a very fluid ballhandling guard and one that moves around constantly. McGraw rarely comes off the court and is a very talented slasher. Expect him to have a rock-solid sophomore campaign.
Robert Parker-Crawford (Maclay)
Doubling as a wide receiver for the Maclay football team, 2020 6’1″ athlete Robert Parker-Crawford is in full control of the basketball squad’s offense. A true strong point man, he wasn’t finishing all of his floaters, but he was aggressive and had the tempo intact for his side. Parker-Crawford is the most instinctive, vocal and athletic player for Maclay and that should bode well for his senior season.
Jackson Miller (St. Joseph’s)
Based off just raw potential and the eye test, 2021 6’8″ forward Jackson Miller has a chance. He transferred over from Ponte Vedra to St. Augustine St. Joseph’s recently. His length is undeniable. He is far from a polished prospect, but if he can get in the gym and work on his mid-range game and feel around the cup, Miller should be able to secure a starting spot and make a name for himself.
