(part 2 of 2)
Drew Blanton 6-1 So Chelsea: Namesake of one of our favorite LSU players, Ricky Blanton. How many future college guards does Chelsea have? Looked like an older player with his fundamentals and steady hand in drills. Blanton has a good-looking shot off the catch and can find corner shooters off of penetration. Consistently got in the lane to pitch it out — not just seeing them, but hitting them in the pocket. Conversely, with all eyes on Camp MVP Sharod Barnes during the game, he snuck open for three-pointers. Athletic and efficient finisher; patient, pump fakes. Alert and opportunistic on D.
Dempsey Cull 6-6 So Davison: Versatility is his calling card at 6-6, able to dial up the 3, or keep it creative but tight driving the lane with spins or Euros. The ability to catch and shoot it consistently off the catch, with textbook arc and not needing much time to get it off, gives Cull the chance to fit into myriad college looks. Not a pump, also hit cutters when he had the ball from 20.
Jesse Cull 6-5 So Davison: Can shoot it from the catch or off the dribble — or break you down, which can be a hard deal covering a 6-5 underclassman. Then there’s little respite when he doesn’t have the ball, as Cull cuts hard and ran the floor steadily. Uses his frame to make space and score on the baseline. “Both twins can play!,” a coach said. “They possess very good skills in all facets of the game. They handle it like 5-9 guards.”
Braeden Holder 5-9 So Warren De La Salle: He had to be one of the leading scorers in camp, thanks to a fortuitous combination of Holder knowing where to find spots particularly against transition defense, and teammates recognizing his hot hand. Recognized when had younger defenders on him and would take it at them and had some fun-finish layups. The Pilots are the defending state champion with a tough rotation to crack — and doing things like getting on the floor for 50/50 balls, which he did here, will help Holder’s cause.
Sean Wesolek 6-5 So Bay City John Glenn: Came in with a confident disposition, and backed it up with his competitiveness in drills and activity, physicality on defense. Challenged shots in and outside of the paint. The best of both worlds, as he can be a productive post player in high school, but showed burgeoning perimeter game in the stations. Patient, soft touch, efficient from the blocks with a bevy of sweet spin moves, or mid-range. Upperclassman goals — more power and above-the-rim finishes, and less finesse.
