Class of 2010: Freed-Hardeman Reviews

The junior class is on the clock and ready to rock. These players will be listed in sequence by their camp number for simplicity purposes.


Brandon Tubbs (Riverside)

All my notes on him were positive, tough player, fearless, plays under control and will flourish in a structured system.

Tyler Thompson (Arlington)

Good shooter who also works hard while on the floor. Makes up for sheer athleticism with smarts and saavy. Finished to the rim with either hand.

William Douglas (Manassas)

Quick and in your face defensively, Douglas will need to temper his game because he does get out of control frequently with no where to go. His effort is top notch and he will become more comfortable with the point guard role as he matures.

Cordero Williams (Liberty Tech)

Really starting to grasp the point guard role and always has that good shot from deep. His defensive effort is "Pure Liberty", which in effect means he gets after it.

Jay Murphy (Bolivar Central)

Playing with a bit of a foot injury hampered his elevation on his shot. Jay showed continued progress on his decision making and I love how he controls tempo on the floor. A leader.

Shaq Walker (Manassas)

Saw him hit six straight during one stretch. His shot always looks true and when he gets more comfortable off the dribble his success will rise. Plays hard on defense with good speed.

Jeremy Whitmore (Raleigh-Egypt)

Really came to life when I challenged that entire games effort at the half. Tough defender and smart offensive player who is always on the move, cutting to the open area for easy buckets. Decent outside shot, should have a fine season for Coach Adams this year.

Charlie Brackeen (USJ)

Really showed leadership skills while rallying his guys when they were down. Not a great lateral athlete he uses his smarts to get shots off and always gives effort.

Brandon Roberts (Raleigh-Egypt)

One of the more impressive players at the event. Strong and able to play both guard spots, Roberts canned over half his threes and played defense like a man possessed. Can't wait to see how his season goes.

Tarius Johnson (Liberty Tech)

I am always impressed with TJ's effort, there are not many kids who play this hard every second they are on the floor. His offensive game is growing as he's added some confidence to his shooting touch. Keep it up.

Reggie Elkins (Brighton)

Small but painfully quick with or without the ball. His decision making actually got better as he became more comfortable with his teammates. He can shoot decent and plays tough on the ball defense.

Yurick Griggs (Bolivar Central)

Improved confidence and shooting stroke should allow him to see many more varsity minutes this season. He needs more consistent effort on defense which should also increase his court time.

T.J. Smith (Livingston Academy)

Always loved his size and demanor on the court. A much better system player who understand the nuiances of the game, he can shoot, has enough size to finish around the bucket and plays solid position defense.

Quinten Lee (Ripley)

Love his tempo with the ball and his determination to become better at his position. He has great vision and can score when the situation calls for that skill. I look forward to his continued development.

Jauwon Cain (Liberty Tech)

Blistering defender who plays smart and never lacks for effort. He can play some wing and is shooting the ball better, the work is paying off.

Johnnie Dunavent (Bolton)

Beautiful lefty mid-range stroke and has good instincts around the bucket. Scores on put backs and clever offesnive glass work. Must be able to use his right hand to further his development.

Riley Morgan (Madison)

One of the better shooter at the camp and a surprisingly good position defender. Plays the game unselfish always looking for the cutter and becomes that cutter when the offense starts to show signs of stagnation.

Jacob Warnick (Perry County)

Can everyone from Perry County shoot the ball? Jake did that and gave effort on both ends of the floor. His defensive effort will improve dramaticaly as he work on footwork and lateral skills drills.

Chris Cox (Big Sandy)

Solid shooter can play the 2 or the 3 equally well. Played defense and played it hard, will be a solid contributor on his level.

Maurice Bynum (Haywood County)

Showed marked improvement in all areas. Was tough on the glass using his size to carve out space, showed a much improved mid-range game and exploded past defender to get easy hoops off the dribble.

JuJuan Blaylock (Liberty Tech)

Grasping the role of inside banger and unquestioned floor leader will come as his role within his team is more clearly defined. Dubbed "Big Boi II" for his resemblance in stature to former Liberty star Antwan Long. He plays hard and tough, it will happen.

Keegan Fuller (Bolivar Central)

Good effort always comes from the Bolivar kids and Fuller was no exception. Can shoot the ball but must become more comfortable playing the lead guard spot.
