Some nuggets (from Phenom Hoop Report) from guys to watch:

6’6” 2018 Mike Wynn
Team United EYBL

Relatively quickly into the event, it became apparent that Mike Wynn was Team United’s best player. Everyone was able to see how he was able to manufacture buckets, no matter the help he has or the talent he is up against. Wynn is very strong and a very good defender. On day 2, he showed the ability to make shots with range as well. High majors will begin tracking as soon as they see him play.

2018 Sharone Wright: One of the top players in the country for his class, with his size and capability to play so many positions and score, there is no doubt why he is being highly recruited.

2018 Ian Steere: Steere is truly growing into being a big-time big man and an athletic one at that. He can throw it down for sure with power and made noise all day long.

2018 Flo Thamba: Lengthy big man with a massive wingspan. He really cleaned up the boards when we watched him in a tough matchup against Team Charlotte.

Nate Hinton (pictured above)- 2018 combo guard of Team Loaded is a true stat sheet stuffer he can impact the game in multiple ways.This kid uses his height well finishing over defenders his pull up game is also very polished. With Gaston Day this past season Hinton got buckets and committed himself to defense.

Scoring is just the tip of the iceberg Hinton is also a good passer and rebounds the basketball really well. Effort is never a question he lays it all out every contest on both ends, defensively Hinton wreaks havoc with long arms and quick hands steals are a given. As of now Creighton, Charlotte, and Winthrop, are among his six offers expect that list to double as he gears up for a strong National travel season in the Adidas Gauntlet.

You’d think Price could use his long time relationship with Larry Nance to get an inside on his kid !
And use him Enid OK ties and land Lazenby.

Does anyone know if Hinton is related to former Niner Clinton Hinton ?
