The second viewing period of the GASO gave us a look at some new faces in the city. A couple of 2019's made a strong case for themselves and some underclassmen established themselves as big time prospects this weekend. Here are the prospects who really helped themselves this weekend:
2019 6'2 G Deaunte Lee: Lee had arguably the strongest showing of any 2019 DFW prospect this weekend. He made shots, strong drives and defended at a high level. Lee is a tough kid who does all of the dirty work and makes threes from all around the arch. He helped himself tremendously this weekend.
2019 6'0 PG KJ Cunnigham: KJ had an excellent weekend at the lead guard spot for TX Impact. I was really impressed with his strength, quickness and ability to make plays for himself and others off the bounce. He made good decisions all weekend and had plenty of coaches there to view him.
2020 6'8 PF JaQuann Scott: Scott was amazing in his Saturday morning game finishing with 23 points and 15 rebounds in a win. He is what a young high major PF prospect looks like. Long arms, broad shoulders, great hands and big time athleticism. He is a fluid athlete who changes ends well, rebounds and finishes above the rim in traffic. He made jump hooks over both shoulders and played with more energy than we've ever seen him. When he plays with that motor there is nothing you can do to keep him off the glass. Scott is being tracked closely by a few Big 12 programs and we expect that to continue moving forward.
2020 6'3 G Jaylin Posey: Posey was good all weekend long. He is a very versatile guard who can play on or off the ball. He has a strong body and a freakish wingspan that allows him to be a terror defensively on the ball and in passing lanes. He has a chance to be one of the best defenders in the city with those attributes. He is also very good offensively with the ability to shoot the three ball at a high clip as well as finish above the rim in traffic. Posey is a prospect colleges should familiarize themselves with early and often.
2020 6'8 Wing Quevian Adger: Adger has been as consistent as any prospect we've scouted during the spring. We've talked about his potential as a prospect for a few years and now he's producing on a consistent basis. He had 24 points in a win over Urban ASAK Friday night. Adger was in attack mode from the tip using strong drives to get himself going from the free throw line. He is a good shooter out to the three point line, and handles the ball a lot better than given credit for. Adger has been consistently productive while still having tremendous room for growth as a prospect. He is really starting to figure out his game and where he's effective. Adger has picked up an offer from Central Connecticut St. this spring.
2021 6'6 F Devon Martin: Martin at first glimpse looks like a grown man. He has a tremendous body especially considering he just finished his freshman year of high school. He rebounded, got out and finished above the rim in transition and really shot the three well. While it is still too early to tell how good Martin will be, he's well on his way to being very good by the time schools can actually begin to recruit him. Definitely one to track the next few years.
