VARSITY Scrimmage Evaluations: Week 1

Jaden TerrellJadenTerrell6'5" | SFWheeling | 2021StateIL – Wheeling – 2021

Jaden TerrellJadenTerrell6'5" | SFWheeling | 2021StateIL has made huge strides in his game over that past year. His incredibly long 6’6” frame, massive wing span, and much improved ability to handle the ball in the open floor coupled with his ability to score at all 3 levels has led to two offers from Arkansas-Little Rock and Detroit so far. He lets the game come to him and takes advantage of breakdowns and weaknesses in his opponent. It’s a mystery as to why no one in state has offered yet.

 

Josiah McDonald – Vernon Hills – 2021

Slasher with great body control when attacking and finishing at the rim. Competitor with the athleticism to guard the ball in open space and played with a motor, diving on the floor for loose balls. Threat from three.
