Watch Video: Combine Highlights

Jerry Washington – 5’3″ PG 2015
Jerry is as quick as they come , and has a strong frame. His vision and speed separate him now as the best pure point guard at the combine , needs to improve outside shot.
Emil Neugent – 6’0″ SF 2015
Neugent’s baby fat is deceptive as he has the ability to get by off the dribble. Also possesses a solid stop and pop game , on the ball defense needs improvement.
Jared Harrington – 5’8″ SG 2015
Harrington’s strength is scoring the basketball. The Princeton Day Prep guard averaged 10ppg at the combine , but must get stronger to have success at the next level.
Brandon Sykes – 5’8″ SG 2015
Sykes is a smooth lefty with a solid mid-range game. Sykes showed off his floater on the offensive end , must develop into a point guard for the high school level.
Justin Catten – 5’3″ PG 2015
Catten is a quick point guard trapped in an overweight frame. He is smart , has good handle and can score the ball. It will be interesting to see if Catten can shed some pounds , it would do wonders for this talented Holy Family (DC) guard.
Jaylon Miles – 5’5″ SG 2015
Miles showed off his ability to knock down the long ball. Miles gets hot and scores in bunches , but also goes through periods of poor shot selection. Needs to transition over the point guard position at the next level.
Afiba Fairnot Jr. – 5’10” SF 2015
Fairnot is scrappy and plays as hard as anyone on the court. Best attacking the rim , but must learn to play the game at different speeds.
Christian Bryant – 5’5″ SF 2015
Bryant is a solid point guard out of Benjamin Taker Middle in Bowie Md. Can create for others , would like to see him create for himself and be more of a scoring threat.

6th/7th Grade Top Performers         Video: Barnes Interview


7th Grade MVP – Dayveon “Doc” Barnes – 6’2″ PF 2016 – Barnes is a skilled big man , not your traditional banger. Though Davyveon did score the majority of his points in the paint , there will also flashes of guard play that included a full court drive ending in a layup and a pair of 15 foot jumpshots. Barnes is young and talented no doubt , in order to be a high major type recruit he must develop a confident handle and adress his conditioning. Barnes is one to monitor.

Kyree Walker 5’10” SF 2016 Walker is a constant motor , at his best crashing and attacking the rim. Also posseses a solid mid range game. Will need to adress his ball handling.
Randy Miller 5’8″ SG 2016 Walker looks to be a solid wing prospect , showed flashes of a pure scorer , but must get stronger to compete at the next level
Kyrie Williams 5’4″ PG 2015 The best overall point guard in the 7th grade dividion this weekend , exhibited ability to get past defenders and finish at the rim. Must work on setting up and knocking down the long ball.
Dujean Clayton 5’6″ SG 2016 Coaches were high on Clayton who showed off his ability to score in bunches. Clayton has a solid basketball IQ but must develop a consistent outside jumper.
Lemar Lee-Kane 5’5″ PG 2016 Lee-Kane was a facilitator at the combine. Although his scoring was limited be is a point and he is unselfish. Want to monitor his progress in the future but must become more of a scoring threat.
Derrick Dixon 5’6″ SG 2017 Dixon is extremely young and is definitely one to watch out for. Was hands down the best scorer in the 6th grade division. Needs to learn game tempo , when to push and when to set-up.
Shyheim Gilkerson 4’7″ PG 2017 Gilkerson held his own against older comptetition , averaging 4.7ppg , though small and fraile he still has time to grow and get stronger.
Marquis Fourth  5’2″ PG 2017 Showed signs of an up and coming point guard prospect with his ability to find open teammates. Fourth has a solid mid-range but must work on finishing around the basket.
Noah Douglass 5’0″ PG 2017 Douglass is tough for his size but was limited because of it. Must work on getting up a quicker release when shooting the basketball.
