Francisco’s Finest: Take Flight (Next Generation)

REDONDO BEACH, CA—The Take Flight Challenge is always a must-see event on the West Coast, due to amount of talent that is right before your eyes at one sitting. The first game scouts got to see the intriguing skill set of one of the better unsigned senior “bigs” in 6-foot-10 Christian Oliver (Maranatha). While in the nightcap the Oregon State-bound Isaiah Johnson rattled the rim, but Mayfair, behind an epic 44-point performance by Josh Christopher, defeated Bishop Montgomery.

Joel’s Take: Each and every game I’ve seen Carr, his game appears to take another step forward. He has the ideal frame for the college level and the athleticism as well, but now his confidence is bursting. He attacked the basket with a vengeance and finished through contact. He can knock in the 3-point shot off the catch and his dribble-drive game is evolving. As he continues to mature and add to his already potent pull-up game, his overall game should continue to evolve.
