CHARLOTTE – The Under Armour-All America Camp kicked off tonight and definitely lived up to all expectations. Some of the best class of 2017 to class of 2019 talent throughout the Under Armour circuit gathered together for a high level event. Here are some of the players that stood out on Wednesday night.
The class of 2017 small forward did what he does best, score the ball. Marshall has elite slashing ability and is a strong finisher in the lane. His jump shot still needs some fine tuning, but he has proven that he belongs on the high major level. The DC Premier prospect finished with 19 points and went 7 of 8 from the field.
Marial was one of the few class of 2019 prospects in attendance, but from the naked eye certainly didn’t play like a rising sophomore. He used his 7’9” wingspan to his advantage by being a serious defensive prescence. He didn’t take a play off and has greatly improved on the offensive end. The next step for Marial will be developing a consistent post game, but he still has three more years of high school to fully develop that portion of his game.
Victor Uyaelumno was one of the most impressive big men on Wednesday as he grabbed 15 total rebounds and blocked a pair of shots. The class of 2017 power forward was active on both sides of the basketball and ran the floor very well. He is still a bit raw offensively, but projects to be a great piece for a team on the high major level.
Kris Wilkes was one of the biggest names coming into camp and showed exactly why this was the case on Wednesday night. He scored in a variety of ways and finished the game with 15 points. Wilkes is both a threat off the bounce and the catch. Indiana, Maryland, UCLA, Michigan and more have heavily recruited him.
Lewis had a strong showing on Wednesday night as he had multiple explosive finishes. The class of 2019 Team Rio (NJ) wing finished with just eight points, but was still productive for his team. He has improved his ball handling ability and even ran the point at times. He has a great amount of upside and will continue to make noise as AAU season continues through July.
Ayala was one of the most impressive scorers in attendance as he was productive both in the lane and on the perimeter. The class of 2018 guard was in control and knew exactly how to get to the rim on a consistent basis. He has had an impressive AAU season and started off the July Live Period on the right note.
