Buckeye Prep Scouting Report - 2nd-5th Grade

9/18/2015

Welcome to our first ever….Showcase coverage report!  We really had a blast covering the event.  How did Next Level Basketball Academy evolve into showcase media?  Well long story short….I personally have developed skills in video editing, scouting (College level for professional level players overseas), coaching AND have a love for sharing this skill….so we decided to take this skill and bring it down to the middle school and lower levels.  We are looking at ways to expand our reach by attending showcase events across the nation.  We hope you enjoy.

Our report will be different than material you have seen before, it will look more like scouting notes.  This is to show you what a college scout might write about you, your son, or your daughter.  We ranked just our top 5 players for this group, based on the limited games was saw.  THIS WAS NOT EASY!  We did not go on name recognition, only on what our eyes saw.   

What if you don’t see your name?  It is possible that we did not see your game, or that the game we watched you did not stand out.  Remember…you never know when a scout is watching your game.

RANK: #2

Event  Scouted: Buckeye Prep Sept 12-13, 2015

Scouting Report: Miles has great size and plays a great all-around game. He finishes strong in the paint. Miles is very hard to stop once he takes off to the basket. His defense in the paint is very strong. Not many people are able to score when guarded by Miles because of his long reach. He combines his size with great speed and is a huge asset to whatever team he plays for.

Next Level Basketball Academy Notes: Miles has a very high ceiling. It is very difficult to slow him down and keep him from scoring in the paint. Opponents have a hard time getting around him and often decide to take outside shots with him on the floor. Our player Comparison is Lamarcus Aldridge. Stay focused, stay grounded, and keep working.

Event  Scouted: Buckeye Prep Sept 12-13, 2015

Scouting Report: Samartine is the kind of player who can take it to the rim from any point on the floor. When he gets a full head of steam, it is almost guaranteed he will score. His physical and aggressive play makes him dangerous for any defender. He is very strong and hard to get past on defense. He also combines all this with a good pull up jump shot and ball handling ability.

Next Level Basketball Academy Notes: Samartine plays like a leader. He is always on the attack and seems to be wherever the ball is. His strength and driving ability are elite. Our player comparison for Samartine is Zach Randolph. Stay focused, stay grounded, and keep working.
