Legit scorer with wonderful guard height. Long arms. Despite his long, lean body Inman is definitely fluid through the shot release. Exactly like many elite scorers, Jackson possesses an uncanny awareness of the defender’s weak points.  He can read body movements and momentum at a micro level. The nuance of his attacking awareness is bizarre. Inman hit a good amount of off-balanced shots last season.

Three-year starter at Knox Webb.

Courtney Smith EVAL: The 6-foot-0 point guard controlled the tempo in the Spartan’ win over Overton. He was strictly just running the offense. Green was getting into the middle of the paint, allowing the Wolverines’ defense to collapse, before kicking out to the shooters. He was making great passes throughout the game. Green, with his great court vision, was getting easy transition points, catching Overton off guard a lot of times.

Ryan continued to establish himself as a complimentary scorer this past summer.  Despite his improvements as a mid-range shooter, it does not appear he will be the focal point on the opposition’s scouting report at the college level. More junkyard dog than elegant show pony.  There are plenty of admirable qualities in his game: effort, quickness, ability to finish, defense, speed, handle.

Willie is a classic 2-guard with wonderful endurance.  His shooting touch was good early in his high school career, so the development of that aspect is unsurprising.  It did take awhile for him to develop an ability to create high quality jump shots against college-bound athletes, but during his final AAU season he took the leap.

CoVid erasing their season, restricted Ahmed’s 2020 shine greatly. Back in 2019 and early 2020 he was a flashy scorer, possibly a combo guard. Not absurdly explosive like many Top 20 guys.   Tough in the lane.
