JJ Rhymes---Shadow Mountain--- Clearly the best player on the floor. We know what JJ can do. He can fill it up and score the basketball and lock up and defend but he still needs to get that consistent jumper to take him to that "next level" as a player. JJ is hearing from mid-major program all the way to PAC-12 programs. To really be a factor in the PAC-12, JJ needs to put on some more size and grow a little as well, and be able to shoot the ball at a very high level.
AJ Elliott ---Pinnacle--- What I love about AJ, he knows his role. He knows what he is good at, and he doesn't try and force himself to be a different type of player. AJ has improved a lot since even July. He is strong and always fighting for boards, has a nice touch and loves to use the glass to score . I expect him to lead Pinnacle to some wins this season. Look forward to seeing him develop more and see where he ends up. AJ will be a steal for some 4-year program looking for a quality post player who likes to do the dirty work.
Avonte Nelms--Arcadia--Avonte has improved a lot over the past two years I've seen him. At the showcase he was not afraid to showcase the pull-up jumper throughout the day. Avonte needs to be able use his size and strength to take it to the basket more. He is more than capable of finishing at the rim but would like to see it more. Will be a good NAIA player. Tough with his size being a tweener at 6'4, but not being a true post but still needs to work on some guard skills. Avonte will have no problem finding a school to play at, just needs to be the right fit! Avonte will help lead an Arcadia program looking to contend with the state's best at the D2 level.
