The camp roster had numerous high quality Wing and Forward prospects who are future College players. In addition to the standouts mentioned earlier in this series, here are some additional Wings and Bigs who impressed. Yannis Woods (6’ 7, Forward, Jonesboro; 2022) is a long and athletic forward with great upside. He had Coaches and scouts highlighting his name as he was dominant defensive force in his opening game, blocking 7 shots and absolutely controlling the defensive boards. His activity on the defensive end was contagious as his camp team ran away with the win. Offensively, he was a handful on the offensive glass, converting several put backs while also finishing several nice post moves in the paint. He gets up and down the floor really well for his size in transition and has the rise to finish well above the rim. He has a tremendous amount of natural tools and talent to work with and our evaluation staff unanimously feels that, with continued progression and development, he has a chance to be a really good player at the College level. Quinton Partee (6’ 3, Wing/Forward, Roswell; 2022) doesn’t have the classic size of typical post; however, if you value production, you are going to be a fan of his game. The strongly built forward plays with maximum effort, is a monster on the boards, and a physical scorer in the paint. He doesn’t back down from taller opponents but goes right at them. As effective as his inside play is, he also showed a consistent outside shot which stretches out to the three-point line. All in all, he has the makeup of a physical hybrid type 3/4 at the small college level who will bring winning intangibles to the table. Rett VanDeMark (6’ 8, Forward, HALO Wolfpack; 2022) is an under the radar home schooled prospect who plays in the small school GAPPS Association. While he didn’t come into camp with the name recognition as some of the other prospects in attendance, he made a good impression with his play and caught the eye of several schools. He was one of the better rebounders in camp and covered a lot of ground on the defensive end of the floor. He did a good job as a rim protector, and multiple evaluators commented on his willingness to battle in the paint. He is a capable scorer on the block and has solid touch on his mid range jumper. Zion Powers (6’ 4, Wing, Woodville Tompkins; 2022) made the most of his trip up to ATL from Savannah, as he put his scoring abilities and defensive versatility on display. At 6’4, he has a nice inside-out feel to his game and was effective slashing to the rim and knocking down the outside shot. He is above average rebounder from the wing position, can guard multiple positions and showed good on-court leadership. An All-Region performer as a Junior, we are expecting a big Senior season for him at Woodville-Tompkins. Inigo Ibanez (6' 7, Forward, Furtah Prep; 2022) is an active and lengthy forward who was a shot eraser throughout the day. Inigo was easily one of the top shot blockers in attendance. Offensively, he has very agile feet for his size and solid moves on the block. Isn't afraid of contact of goes strong to the basket. Multiple coaches commented on his work ethic and attention to detail in the morning skill stations. Will be a major piece for Furtah Prep program that is always in the hunt for State Title in GISA.
