An electric opening night of the 2017 NY2LA Sports Summer Jam saw the college coaching world take in some excellent action.  Here’s a quick look at a handful of talented prospects that impressed the plethora of college coaches in attendance…

Harlond Beverly – 2019 – G – REACH Legends
Beverly (Southfield Christian/Farmington Hills, MI) made a statement as a player Division I coaches should track at the Summer Jam Wednesday night.  The 6’4 guard utilized his athleticism to make an impact on both ends of court as well as some highlight reel finishes in transition. Beverly finished with 19 points against Quad City Elite, including a pair of three-pointers. He displayed the versatility to be effective on or off the ball offensively, and the ability to guard the opposition’s point guard and shooting guard. 

Rasir Bolton – 2018 – PG – Team Loaded VA
He may not get the most hype of some of his teammates, but Bolton may have been his squad’s best player Wednesday night at the Summer Jam. The Huntington Prep product has decent size at 6’2, and got where he wanted to go with the ball in his hands against CIA Bounce.  Bolton was also cash from long range, as well as the mid range as he led Team Loaded to a relatively easy victory against the talented squad from Canada. Bolton already has a handful of high major offers, but should see that number continue to grow with performances like the one he had Wednesday night. 

Flynn Cameron – 2018 – PG – AUSA Hoops Platinum NY2LA
The strong-bodied, 6’4 Aussie has continued to catch the eye of mid and high major programs alike with his play. Cameron has just about every tool a coach looks for in a floor general, and takes advantage of his size advantage against most of his defenders. He displayed the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter in a big win against Playground Elite EYBL, but was impressive getting to where he wanted to go in the lane to either finish at the hoop or set up a teammate for an easy bucket.

Traveon Maddox Jr – 2018 – G – Michigan Warriors
One of the bigger sleepers on the 17U level at the Summer Jam, the 6’4 combo guard from Novi HS (Novi, MI) has athleticism for days. He flashed some point guard feel with some nice drives and kicks after he made the defense collapse, but was most impressive finishing around the rim in transition as well as off the dribble in a half court setting. Also a standout on the football field, Maddox got a little too sped up at times Wednesday night but showed enough potential to be a game changer at both ends for low and mid major DI’s to check out.   

Carrington McCaskill – 2019 – F – REACH Legends
There is no shortage of athleticism and leaping ability with the 6’6 wing from Renaissance HS (Oak Park, MI). McCaskill has a developing perimeter skill set and did most of his damage Wednesday night around the rim or at the free throw line.  Low and mid major DI’s have begun to monitor his progress, and the Summer Jam is a great chance for him to start collecting some offers if he continues his play from Wednesday night. 

Kenneth Nwuba – 2018 – F – MBA Hoops Elite
Nwuba was the most physically imposing player on the court Wednesday night in a high level game against Mac Irvin Fire, and the 6’10 forward (Oak Hill) was the most dominant player on the court at times. Already the host of several high major offers, consistency throughout a game will be the biggest key for Nwuba to take his game to new heights. On Wednesday, his ability to be effective in the paint on defense and clean up the glass stood out along with some of his finishes around the rim on offense. 

John Rawls – 2019 – F – MBA Hoops Elite 2019
You wouldn’t have known Rawls was playing up a division in 17U by watching Wednesday night. The 6’7 forward from East Marion High (Columbia, MS) showed the ability to be a dominant defensive rebounder and imposing interior presence. With a collection of high major caliber teammates, Rawls could walk away with some major interest following the Summer Jam if he rebounds and controls the glass the way he did Wednesday night. His size and massive frame coupled with the ability to move the way he can currently slots him as a mid to high major prospect.  

Jacob Schwerbrock – 2018 – F – Quad City Elite
There may not have been a better shooting performance from three-point land Wednesday night at the Summer Jam, and Schwerbrock who put on a show against MBA Hoops Elite’s 16U squad. The Wethersfield High (Sewanee, IL) product stands 6’8 and with the ability to stretch the floor, Schwerbrock has a chance to impress coaches if he continues shooting the rock like he did Wednesday night.  

Khalil Whitney – 2019 – G/F – Mac Irvin Fire EYBL
The Chicago native who plays at Roselle Catholic (NJ) dominated his 16U game, then turned around and poured in 22 points against MBA Hoops Elite in the 17’s division Wednesday night.  At 6’7, Whitney showed why he is a high major talent; with a great looking shooting stroke, he has the potential to become a long range threat and his athleticism and handle allow him to be dangerous off the dribble. Based off his performances Wednesday night, he will have a host of high major programs watching each game.
