Standouts from the Terrific 24
The Terrific 24 was held in Indianapolis, Indiana this past weekend as many names stood out and shined. Here are 8 standouts.
Maka Ellis (Class of 2018 | Vegas Elite 2018)
At 6-foot-5, Ellis, was sensational all throughout the weekend. He displayed his ability to score on three levels on a consistent basis. As defenders guarded Ellis as a shooter, he used that to his advantage by driving and finishing through contact using his body control. In the last game, he finished with 32 points in front of Lon Kruger (Oklahoma), UNLV, and others that were on hand. Ellis carries offers from Utah State, New Mexico State, Santa Clara, Lehigh, Tulane, and Nevada. He has interest from the likes of UVA, Stanford, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Utah, Princeton, California, and St. Mary’s.
Trey Woodbury (Class of 2018 | Vegas Elite 2018)
Woodbury’s game is similar to Gordon Hayward’s game. He brings toughness and the ability to score on three-levels each time he hits the floor. Woodbury showed his ability to knock down shots from mid-range and out. He was consistent when it came to knocking down shots both open and contested. The 6-foot-4 wing also has a great feel for the game and his passing ability is sometimes overlooked. He has offers from USC, UNLV, TCU and Arizona State while having interest from Washington, Middle Tennessee and Oklahoma.
Bryce Hamilton (Class of 2018 | Belmont Shore)
The 6-foot-4 guard had solid outings throughout the event. He showed his ability to score by attacking the basket and finishing through contact. At times, he did display a jump shot but for the future, Hamilton will need to keep improving on his overall shooting ability so it will be more consistent. To be more successful at the next level, he will also need to work on his upper body. The combo guard has earned offers from Arizona State, UNLV, UCSB and carries interest from Washington, Oregon, Butler, and UCLA.
Isaiah Moll (Class of 2018 | NY Havoc)
Although the 6-foot-7 forward struggled at the beginning, Moll proved to be a standout near the end of the event. He bullied his way inside to score with ease a high level. When he wasn’t scoring inside, he expanded his game by hitting jump shots and threes. For the collegiate level, Moll would need to cut down a bit and get quicker defensively. He has offers from Siena and Albany.
Devin Vassell (Class of 2018 | Team A.J. Bouye)
The newest Florida State commit, Vassell, raised his stock at this event. At 6-foot-5, he brings good length, a defensive presence, and a smooth stroke. Defensively he depended on his length to both block and contest shots. At the next level, Vassell would need to work on strength and his overall body. Overall, Leonard Hamilton and the Florida Staff picked up a sleeper in the 2018 class.
Jamal Bey (Class of 2018 | Vegas Elite 2018)
At 6-foot-6, Bey, got to the basket and either finished or drew the foul using his solid upper body strength and overall athleticism. He also has the ability to knock down the outside shot when he isn’t driving to the basket. Defensively, Bey uses his athletic body type to guard multiple positions on the floor. He has offers from USC, UNLV, Washington, Arizona State, SDSU, Utah, and TCU. He earned interest from UCLA, Arizona, Oklahoma, Gonzaga, and Oklahoma State.
Austin McCullough (Class of 2018 | Greenwood Elite)
Again, the 6-foot-5 wing showed off his ability to shoot the ball at a high-level. If his shot wasn’t going down, he wasn’t afraid to attack the basket to finish or draw the foul. After his performances at the Terrific 24, he quickly earned offers from Niagara and UMass (Lowell).
Tristian Jarrett (Class of 2017 | Memphis Hoopers)
Jarrett showed serious range in his overall shooting ability. Each time the 6-foot-4 guard wasn’t shooting; he showcased his driving skillset as he finished with both hands using his crafty lay-up package. Defensively, he seemed to be in the right place at the right times as he would get multiple stops and cause turnovers for the opponents.
