Yesterday I attended Hoop Group’s Summer Jam Fest event held at Spooky Nook Sports. After a long hiatus, getting back in the gym to see player I knew an didn’t know was refreshing as ever. It was well ran as always and took all of the safety precautions necessary to provide players a platform for exposure. Many of which have garnered new college interest or offers over the last 24 hours. I arrived for the 8:30AM games and stayed throughout the day.

Here are the frontcourt prospects that stood out.

Donovan Clingan | 7’1 | Team Spartans ’22

Clingan was the best true big in attendance at this event. At 7-foot-1, there was simply no on that could stop him on block catches with his back to the basket. From there he’d either bully his defender under the rim before finishing with two-handed dunks or utilize his soft touch over his shoulder. Defensively he was a human eraser around the rim. His height and length gave him first dibs on missed shots and he took advantage by securing the board, locating a guard and rim-running.

Jarace Walker | 6’9 | Team Thrill ’22

As usual
