Sturdy. Powerful. Nehemiah Bloodsaw Nehemiah Bloodsaw 6'2" | SG Tyner Academy | 2023 State TN was more competitive than most, the determination to win apparent on his face.

Ambitious and hungry.

Shooting outside 12’ needs to improve a ton. This will take much work.

Strong foundation.

The passing of Tucker Monroe Tucker Monroe 6'3" | SF McMinn County | 2023 State TN sparkled.  Tucker Monroe Tucker Monroe 6'3" | SF McMinn County | 2023 State TN certainly shared some innovated passes.  More than once he tricked off-ball defenders with some flavorful creations.  

To contribute beyond high school Tucker Monroe Tucker Monroe 6'3" | SF McMinn County | 2023 State TN needs to be able to, at a minimum, put an elusive dribble or two together.  Can he skip around an NAIA-lockdown defender?  Close, but not yet. 

The shooting touch and lower-body balance of Tucker looked above average for 4A high school.  Absolutely, the presidentially-named Monroe made 8’, 10’, 12’ jumpers consistently during the Summer Combine. 

At this stage, Monroe is kind of a better shooting Lonzo Ball-type.  Good court vision. Needs to improve quickness/explosion.
