Evaluation:

Perfect stretch 4 that can shoot the 3 with range, take bigger forwards off the bounce, has a high basketball IQ, and is a tough matchup as a trail 4 in PnR action. You can tell he loves the game, he plays with tremendous energy, competes hard and plays with a certain confidence that could end up leading to a LM D1 Offer in the Spring. Talented and Tough are hard to find these days and Braden is both. Not a coincidence that Champion who lost in State last year is off to a 22-3 start again with Braden leading the way. Already has 2 legit NCAA D2 offers but wants to play his way onto LM D1 boards. If Champion is playing in the Alamo Dome again I can certainly see that happening.

Evaluation:

Glenn is a scholarship level athlete, has a college ready body, and looks his best
in a team setting. At the UC Camps, when we got to the 3 on 3, 4 on 4 segments and 5 on 5 structured games he started to stand out with his playmaking ability. Tough matchup with his ability to put it on the floor and make plays off the bounce, skilled passer from the high post, and good basketball IQ as he took advantage of mismatches when wings where guarding him on D. or post up smaller wings. Not a lot of flash to Glenn, just results and he continues to progress as he is having a big time Sr Season in a very Tough Houston District. Gets to the basket with authority, draws fouls in the paint, and uses his body to shield off bigger opponents. Glenn has the versatility on both ends to play and guard multiple positions. If he starts to knock down the 3pt shot at a higher % he could work his way onto LM D1 boards after 2 years of JC ball. Regardless, he is a full scholarship level talent that will be a late steal.

Evaluation:

The type of player that asks to guard the other team's best player, then goes 5-7 from the 3 with the opposing team's top defender guarding him. Love his grit and competitive spirit as well heading into the Spring. Not sure why more NAIA/NCAA D2 Programs have not shown more interest or offered at this point, but he is set to put up big numbers in the 2nd Semester and will have end with some scholarship level offers in April. Right now has several solid D3 options but waiting to decide in April. Do some research if you need a shooter!

Evaluation:

Cayden can flat out shoot the ball, and has a college ready release as he raises up on the catch and creates space when shooting the ball. His college strength is shooting the 3 but he has realized since the first camp, he can do so much more at 6 '4 than knock down shots. That’s what UC Exposure is all about, get exposed early, get back to work, get better in those areas, and make progress in areas you need to improve. Cayden did just that, now he is a shooter that is making more winning plays without the ball in his hands, still a high % college ready shooter, and understands how to create space and get his shot off vs more athletic defenders.

Evaluation:

Isaiah is a skilled SF that could end up being a very solid small college PnR prospect at a D2/D3 JUCO so he has room to grow into his full potential. Has a nice touch from 3 when his feet are set, skilled passer
and deceptive athlete who runs the floor well in transition. Defensively, he has the god given tools to be able to guard the 2-5 spots at the D2/D3 JUCO or NCAA D3 levels. This kids best is in front of him as he fills out physically and plays with more consistent effort on both ends. Has some tools you can't teach, and as a young Sr (17) his best is clearly in front of him.

Evaluation:

Played tough and physical from the opening drills, has improved his overall perimeter skill set knocking down several 3s, and out worked and out played bigger market ranked prospects to finish on
TOP. Plays with tremendous energy, active rebounder, and just flat out finds ways to WIN. Every college coach on staff used the same verbiage when describing Trevin and that was: Tough, High Motor, Winner. 3 Traits that should take Trevin from great small school player to college signee when it’s all said and done. Watching the progress he's made in the past year, you will be getting a 6'5 Playmaker with his best in front as he continues to put in the work.

Evaluation:

The best pass first PG and decision maker with the ball in his hands at the Final Four Camp. Lead guard that can run a team, knocks down the open 3, plays with great pace and one of the tougher on ball defenders on the court regardless of position. Fills up a stat sheet on the offensive end, while guarding the best player on the other team is a good combo to have in a PG. Winners win and Nate also excels in the classroom being on Honor Roll both his Jr and Sr Season. If you need a PG in the 2023 Class, look no farther and watch some game film on Nate Coley he is a college ready Point Guard that can step on the court his freshmen season and be productive.

Evaluation:

College Ready Rebounder and Defender who started all season for DCCCD Runner-Up Richland CC. Big bodied Forward who has a high motor, plays to his strengths and does all the dirty work that leads to wins. He is a perfect piece to the puzzle for an NAIA program, if you need to improve your rebounding and defense in the front court. Soaked up instruction/coaching throughout, played with tremendous energy from start to finish on the boards and on D, and finishes plays around the Rim. If you have signed a scoring big or have scorers at the 4 and 5 spots returning, then Desmond would be a great pickup for you and one to research. Makes a lot of winning plays that don’t show up on stat sheets, will continue to get better, and has a college ready body.

Up tempo point guard that controls the pace, excels in the open court, and competes at a very
high level. That is what stands out most is his competitive spirit and love for the game. Intangible wise, you can’t teach the energy and motor that Justin plays with which is why he made the report. When you are undersized and have the speed Justin has, it is all about fit. Programs that have a scoring PG or combo guards leading the team, could add Justin for what he brings to your roster, toughness, energy & effort.

Evaluation:

Almamy is a combo guard with a quick first step, who does a great job of
getting by the first line of defense, and when he draws help has a high IQ of when to pass or score it. Skilled passer who sees the court well and gets teammates open shots. At 6'3 he can see over the top of the defense or finish plays at the rim. Almamy finishes around the basket with an array of
floaters, mid-range shots, and uses both his right and left hand effectively which makes him tough to stop when he gets in the paint. Defensively, Almamy plays with a lot of energy, has active hands off the ball, and does a really good job of applying ball pressure without giving up straight line drives. Listed by all 4
college coaches on staff as a scholarship level talent, that I project will end up with JC & NAIA Offers when it's all said and done.

Evaluation:

Davonte is at his best when the game is fast, and excels in the open court playing downhill or sprinting lanes to get wide open shots in transition. Has good shot mechanics, gets his feet set before the catch, and is consistent in his shooting motion. Moves well without the ball in his hands to get to his spots When he is bringing the ball up he is a very good playmaker who gets in the paint at will and scores it or makes the right pass. Tough on ball defender who continues to progress as a leader for SA Wagner this season.
