Session II of the GBCA Team Camp is underway with a new group of teams looking to make their mark in front of an audience of college coaches. Here are some notes from the second day of session two:
- Providence Christian 2022 forward Tony Carpio has had a really good weekend overall. He's proven that mid major and low major schools should be all over him with his ability to play inside-out, rebound at a high level, and play with toughness. He had one of the better performances of the day with 26 points in a win over Cross Creek. He has a Division I offer from Army, but there will be more programs that join in on his recruitment.
- It's clear to see why Centerville (OH) is one of the top high school programs in Ohio. Their backcourt of Gabe Cupps (Pictured), Tom House, Rich Rolf, and Emmanuel Deng were fantastic today and can all shoot three. They've been great competition here and when they return to Ohio should be a program that will get a lot of attention.
- Grayson 2022 wing Rob Cowherd looked very impressive today. He makes winning plays on both ends of the floor and his qualities project well to the next level. At a strongly-built 6-foot-4 he defends at a high level and can guard multiple positions. He also hits the glass and scores it well from every level. A number of high major programs including Ole Miss, Clemson, Xavier, Mississippi State, and USF are on him.
- The Milton backcourt continues to impress, and Chase Cormier's fit with the team is great. His motor and defensive activity have increased and he gives the Eagles another ball handler, scorer, and creator. His ability to also play off the ball fits with Ohio State commit Bruce Thornton as well, giving him another target when he creates.
- The two best defenders in the gym this weekend? Allatoona 2022 guard Cayden Charles and Archer 2022 guard Christian Drummer. These guys are going to win a ton of games at the next level and low major coaches should have them both on their watchlist.
- Westlake 2022 wing Jalal McKie had a very good day scoring the basketball, with a 21-point and 19-point performance. He seemingly finishes everything and powers his way through contact. He also always finds himself in the right spots around the ball. He rebounds at a high level and has some versatility as well. He was one of the top performers of the day.
