There were many players making a name for themselves over the two days in Waukegan, Illinois. Here are the players from the 16U level that were able to boost their stock with some quality efforts this past weekend…

Daylan Ellington – Midwest Prospect Academy East – G
Ellington greatly impressed with all of his abilities and contributes plenty on the floor. He is an active and athletic point guard that plays tough on ball defense with his quickness and is tough to beat off the dribble. Did the bulk of his scoring shooting the ball off the dribble and spotting up from three as well as pulling up in the mid-range. 

Kenneth Garth – World Hoops Elite – G
Garth is a talented up-tempo playmaking guard. Skilled driver who does a great job beating his man off the dribble with ease. He is able to distribute and score the basketball both at a high rate. Once he beats his man, he showed great vision while on the move. The guard is a good quick decision maker and knows what to do with the basketball. The junior knows when to kick it out or take it all the way to the paint. 

Tyler Harmon – Yanders Law – G
Unselfish point guard that can both score and distribute the basketball. Does a very nice job of moving the basketball, always finding the open man with good court vision, and getting everyone involved. Showed his ability as a spot up three-point shooter hitting a few tough contested shots right over defenders. 

Ethan Hill – UTS Elite – F
Hill has good size at 6’8” and a strong frame but also showed off some skills. The power forward moves well for his size attacking the basket and is able to finish strong there over or though defenders. Also added some baskets while on the block posting up as well as on a few put backs. Showed a good passing ability dishing it out of the post. 

Eric Locke Jr. – Illinois Jaguars – F
Very long 6’5” wing that is a terror for his opposition on the defensive end. Versatile defender that can guard nearly anyone on the floor. Plays with a great motor on the defense to get all over ball handlers. Does a nice job of putting pressure on the ball with his length, agility, and quickness without fouling or getting beat. Simply put he is a lockdown defender.

Delon McCloud – UTS Elite – G
McCloud plays with incredible energy on the court. The guard made plenty of plays on the court by just outworking and outhustling his opponents. Was all over the court making a big impact for his team. Scored it in a variety of ways; put backs, attacking the basket, and hit some jumpers in the mid-range and three. 

Jackson Paveletzke – TH-2022 – G
The junior is a high-level shooter that can knock down threes in bunches. He moves well without the ball and creates space off the dribble to get himself high percentage shots. Was one of the top shooters at the tournament. 

Drew Reindl – Wisconsin RAP – G
Reindl is a quality guard who knows how to score the basketball and showed a high basketball IQ. At his best spotting up for threes knocking them down in bunches, but also has the ability to attack the basket when being overplayed. Plays with a good motor and really battles on the defensive end to play tough defense. 

Andrew Robinson – Yanders Law – G
One of the better shooters at the tournament who impressed with his ability to score the basketball. Sharpshooter that hit four three in a game at a high percentage. The lengthy guard has a very smooth stroke when spotting up on the arc and showed a nice shot selection. Robinson came up big in the clutch, hitting three free throws with under a second to play to secure a win for his team. 

Matt Spears – George Hill All Indy – F
Spears is a super lanky 6’6” wing forward that is able to contribute in a number of ways. With his length, mobility, and motor did a good job defending players inside and out. Showed a good ability to block shots at a high rate. Puts it on the floor well and was able to get to the basketball a fair amount. High upside wing that college coaches will want to be familiar with, has plenty of tools.
