A look inside the Idaho Showcase

by Transition Hoops Report

showcase carrIt was a fantastic weekend from southern Idaho. Players from all over Idaho and a few from Montana made there way in for the Idaho Showcase, which not only featured top level games but college coaches and combine training.

Here are just a few of the players that stood out.

Class of 2017

Jaxon Edelmayer (6’4 PF Madison HS, ID) – terrific athlete with a great second jump.  Edelmayer can break down his defender to get to the rim and finish at the rim.  He is a college level player that, if he can prove he can make perimeter jumpshots, will be able to play at a pretty high level.

Nick Fitts (5’7 PG Melba HS, ID) – is known for his sharp shooting with deep range.  But what he really showed this weekend was his toughness, ability to beat guys off the dribble, and desireto battle defensively.  Fitts would be a nice asset for a small college.

Konner Jackson (6’8 C Madison HS, ID) – is a long interior presence.  Nielson has some very nice back to the basket moves and a soft touch around the rim.  He is an intriguing player for a small college because if his body continues to get stronger he could have a big impact on games.

Tyas Kitchen (6’5 SF Vallivue HS, ID) – is a long and athletic wing.  Kitchen has a scorer’s mentality with a ton of confidence.  His long term success will be determined by how productive he can be without the ball in his hands and his ability to get loose balls/ rebounds.

Cody Liles (6'4 Florance-Carlton HS, MT) - strong build and can shoot off the catch. He plays so hard and is willing to hit that boards that he is making himself a small college prospect.

James Ramirez (6’5 PF Manhattan Christian HS, MT) – is a warrior that battles for every loose ball and rebound.  Ramirez maximizes his body and is a player that is loved by teammates.  He would be a great asset for a small college.

Nathan Webb (6’5 SG Madison HS, ID) – has a beautiful release that consistently fills it up.  Webb has great size and length and understands how to use screens and move without the ball to get good looks.  He is a nice small college wing.

Class of 2018

Daxton Carr (6’6 SF Highland HS, ID) – has awesome length and athleticism.  Carr loves the pull up and mid range jumper.  He is a high level athlete that has a really high ceiling.  In order for him to achieve his maximum potential he has to be more productive on every play on both ends – battling for loose balls, scoring with his back to the basket, setting hard screens, etc.

Showcase group

Lucas Centeno (6’4 SG Boise HS, ID) – might have been the most productive player in the camp.  Centeno is really efficient.  He doesn’t waste any motion, really shoots the ball, battles for loose balls, and competes on defense.  If he continues to improve at the pace he has been he could play at a very high level.

Derek Evers (6’5 PF Borah HS, ID) – tough as nails.  Evers is an elite rebounder that finds a way to get his hands on every loose ball.  He does a great job of setting screens, doing the small things, and being a great teammate.

Jalen Galloway (6’6 PF Mountain View HS, ID) – long and appears to still be growing.  Galloway plays hard and is a factor on both ends with his ability to score from the perimeter or with his back to the basket or protect the rim.  He has a chance to play at a high level.

Class of 2019

Cole Lake (5’8 PG Eagle HS, ID) – can break down defenders off the dribble.  When Lake doesn’t overdribble or get in to tight quarters he can create open looks for teammates.

Jake Poulton (5’10 PG Columbia HS, ID) – is a very under control lead guard that has a good handle and good passer.  Poulton’s level will be determined by how explosive he can be in blowing by defenders to score or distribute.

Jaron Rillie (5’6 PG Timberline HS, ID) – has a great feel for the game.  Rillie has great range and can set up teammates for easy looks when he beats defenders off the dribble.  His level will be determined by his strength and ability to guard.
