Las Vegas c/o 2020 has much talent but the transition from middle school to high school will be something new,there will be an adjustment period necessary.Not just on the court but also inside of the classrooms.Many of these young student athletes will have to quickly come to grips with understanding that they are more than just basketball players,but they are young men that will have to demonstrate character,integrity and,class.Many people that they come in contact with,will look to them for leadership so it’s very important for these young student athletes to understand that they must lead by example. Academics must be the primary Objective and excelling at a very high-level,when they take care of business inside of the classroom then basketball will come easy for these young men..Many of these young student athletes are already being looked at by college coaches throughout the country so these young men must understand that test scores such as ACT and SAT are very important key factors for them.They should not wait,they should gather all information,and resources that are available to them to perform well on these test,because nothing is given everything is earn!! mommy and daddy can’t save them anymore!! Lets take a look at some of the talent in this class of 2020!!!
1). Julian Strawther 6’5,high school-Liberty (AAU Team-Cal United out of California) Wing,that has a ton of upside long Athletic and can shoot the 3. There’s always room for improvement for young players defense will be a focal point for this young talent.He has the ability to be an ambassador in the city!! He is special!!
2). Isaiah Cottrell 6’7, high school-Bishop Gorman (AAU Team- Las Vegas prospects) Center,One thing you can’t teach is height a big man with a soft touch is something rare. For his sizes he runs the floor pretty good. It is scary how good this young man can be!
3). Noah Taitz 6’2, high school-Bishop Gorman ( AAU Team-Vegas Elite), Guard, where do I start with this young man he can handle the ball,good feet work,can shoot off the dribble and for his age he has some bounce. Basketball IQ Is extremely high he will need that at the next level.
4). Keyshawn Hall 5’11, high school-Cheyenne (AAU Team-Las Vegas prospects), Point Guard, this young player is one who demonstrates the ability to get to the basket he has a motor that’s something you can’t teach and his defensive skills is way above most.
5). James Canady 6’2, high school- unknown (AAU Team-Las Vegas Knicks), forward, too many people don’t know of him but he’s a name that you should remember raw talent strong physical a presence in the middle and one who is willing to bang nice upside. Got bounce!
6). Tone Hunter 5’11, high school- Durango (AAU Team-Vegas Elite), Point Guard, over the years I have seen this young fella grow into becoming a more mature basketball player,he must stay in the gym at his position the transition will be fast. Good Basketball IQ.
