David Kent – @coachkent02 on twitter; @InsiderExposureDK on IG
I arrived at Tampa Thursday morning and I spent the rest of the day with some college coaches. Thursday I spent all day at The Insider Exposure Pro Combine. Saturday afternoon I arrived at Armwood High School where The EGB All-American Game was being held. Nicc Jackson had one of the best opening monologues to any individual showcase I’ve been to. After the 12 minute monologue we started games and here are some of the kids that stood out to me over the two-day event.
Jada Williams 5”7 CG Blue Springs Mo 2023
Jada Williams, with a ball in her hand, was able to create plays for other kids and able to create her own Shots as well. A great athlete does a great job of getting to the cup and finishing through contact. When she’s able to be in transition she can electrify the game and definitely brings energy through making the correct highlight play. She has a tremendous upside. I cannot wait to see her in a year or so and see what else she adds to her repertoire.
Sammie Wagner 6”1 Wing San Antonio Tx 2023
I really hate giving this kid a position because every time I see her she has changed her game so much. Sammie is starting to stretch out very much. You definitely can tell that she’s more comfortable with the basketball now, beating people off the dribble from the perimeter, knocking down pull-ups and occasionally the three ball. She’s also able to finish through contact and an excellent passer from the high and low post.
Juju Watkins 6”1 Wing Watts Ca 2023
Juju is a great athlete who’s able to run the break herself or fill a lane and score from the wing. She scores the ball in many different ways, off the mounts, off the catch, and able to get to the cup pretty much at will. She has good timing on shot blocking ability and her upside is crazy. I can’t wait to see what happens when she hits the weight room.
Kiara Croskey 5”4 CG Sumter SC 2024
Kiara made an announcement this weekend that she would like to be noticed on the National stage and she backed it up by her play. She was able to get to the cup that will create for other players on drives, knocking down the pull up at a pretty consistent right and on the other side of the floor she is definitely a dog on defense.
Summer Bostock 5”10 Wing Carlisle Canada 2024
Summer has Great Lengths and a great athlete. She’s able to run the floor and plays great in transition. She can also knock down the three ball. She can play hard on both ends of the floor and she does a great job of cleaning up the boards. I look forward to seeing her again and seeing what else she adds to that tool belt.
Jada Cook 5”7 Wing Roanoke Va 2024
