Although the Created Player National Exposure Showcase did not have quite the star power they had with their inaugural event, they still managed to attract several kids in multiple grade divisions who made an argument for national recognition.

Case in point, although we concentrated the bulk of our evaluations on the 3rd/4th grade division, from what we saw this past weekend, any 2030 national list/rankings that does not include Markiss Northern (5’0″/PG/2030/South Bend, IN) and Jeremiyah Johnson (5’3″/PG/2030/South Bend, In) is incomplete!  These two kids absolutely lit this event up, and were clearly the top two performers in their class at the camp. Although Northern was clearly the most skilled of the two, with his ball skills and 3-level scoring ability, Johnson used his brute strength and power to get down hill and finish with guys hanging all over him.  To be more specific, Johnson was unstopable to the rim once he got up a head of steam.  Not only did he power is way to the cup with ease, he passed the rock up court with precision, resulting in easy buckets for streaking teammates. Both of these Indiana products were bucket getters, and should be tracked going forward!!

Of course, Ohio’s Askia Holloway (4’6″/PG/2030/Dayton, OH) had another standout performance with his quickness, court vision and passing skills.  In addition, Holloway is crafty, smart and he has deep range on his jump shot.  We only caught glimpses of his play, but everything we saw from Aaron Jones (5’7″/WF/2029/Frankfort, Ky) was impressive, and suggested he has a bright future with continued growth and development. From what we saw, Jones has good size for his position, great court vision and the ability to deliver passes on time and on target.

The 3rd/4th grade division had its on share of standouts including: Joshua Anthony (5’2″/PG/2031/Louisville, KY), Miracle Lindsey (4’8″/PG/2031/Louisville, KY), Parker Wright Jr. (4’3″/PG/2031/South Bend, IN), Myles Curry (5’2″/WF/2031/Johnson City, IN), Montez Spencer Jr. (5’3″/C/2031/Louisville, KY), Cameron Stone (4’9″/CG/2031/Jeffersonville, IN) and Landon Jones (5’5″/C/2031/Jeffersonville, IN).  Anthony is a highly ranked 4th grader for a reason; he’s long, skilled and relentless to the cup.  You can tell from his game that he spends a lot of time in the gym! We also really liked the guard play of Lindsey, Stone and Parker, all of whom stay in the paint and stay in attack mode.  In terms of the bigs, Spencer and Jones get the job done. Spencer has great feet, hands and the ability to go get a bucket. Jones loves to handle the rock in transition, but can also score near the basket. Finally, Derrick Perryman (5’3”/C/2031/Gahanna, OH) had a good camp as well, and his combination of size and shooting ability set apart. Moreover, Perryman did a good job within his defensive matchups.

Playing up in a mixed division at a camp like this is tough, and as far as evaluations go, we have to look for glimpses of what a player can do since they are playing against bigger and older players.  With that being said, Cavalli Goldthreate (4’8″/CG/2032/Nashville, TN), Keylon Thomas (4’7″/CG/2032/Nashville/TN) more than competed, and demonstrated why they are nationally ranked. Goldthreate is the more athletic of the two Tennessee products and he impacts the game on both ends of the court. In addition, if he gets hot, he can knock down deep threes while also protecting the rim with his ability to block shots.  While Goldthreate, relies more on his size and athletic ability, Thomas is the more skilled kid who uses his ball skills and length to score. Thomas does a great job of creating space then attacking the basket. We also saw good things out of David Johnson III (4’7″/WF/2032/Worthington, OH), Jordan Taylor (4’6″/PG/2032/Gahanna, OH), Cyrus Clark (4’6″/PG/2032/Louisville, KY) and Carter Watson (4’6″/SG/2032/Reynoldsburg, OH). Below is a more complete list of the standout performers at the event. Finally, below is a list of the “All-Camp Teams” as chosen by the camp staff and submitted to us. A quick shoutout to the Created Player staff for putting this quality event.  As always, please follow us on IG @robt1.
