The 2012 Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase

     This years Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase (Sept. 22-23) in Columbus,Oh has to be the best one yet. Rob Taylor has turned his show case into a two day event. There will be great talent at the showcase this year from all over the Midwest including players from our neighbors in Canada. The headliner for the event in my opinion is the 2016 Team Ohio versus the 2016 Team Michigan. Should be a great game with top talent from both states that are also recognized on the national level.

        Rakym Felder aka. the Bedstuy bully, lived up to his name at the Fab Frosh camp. He harassed opponent's the entire time there. If it wasn't his smothering defense it was his intimidating and physical style of play. He was too strong and physical for most guards and it showed at camp. He got to the basket and finished through all types of contact. He bullied his way into the top 20 all star game in which he played well. We really like Rakyms game and he will flourish once he develops a consistent  mid range game and jump shot. He is a Nations Elite Prospect!!


        Eron Gordon showed why he is one of the elite scoring guards in this loaded 2016 class at the  Fab Frosh.  He has a very quick first step and his ability to get to the basket is second to none. At times he seemed to toy with guards on opposing teams because they couldn't stay in front of him. His athleticism is off the charts (he can get in the air for dunks with ease). His play got him into the top 20 all star game. He put his athleticism on full display in that game when he came down and dunked on Edrice Adabayo. Eron is going to have to work on his jump shot for the next level. Overall Mr. Gordon had a great showing at  the camp. He is a Nations Elite Prospect!!!



      Braxton Blackwell had a great showing at the Fab Frosh camp. He came in and established his game the minute he touched the floor. One of the main attributes Mr. Blackwell has is his ability to handle the ball in a half court set and in transition. Braxton has a decent mid range game to go along with his ball handling. He received a top 20 all star game nod also. One thing that Braxton needs to work on is developing is his jump shot and better post skills so when he is matched with smaller players he can take full advantage. He showed why he is one of Tennessee's top players for the 2016 class. Auburn University has taken notice of Mr. Blackwells play and gave him his first offer. I'm sure many more colleges will soon following suit. Braxton Blackwell is a Nations Elite Prospect!!!

      Algevon Eichelberger is a player that every team needs and he showed why at the fab frosh camp. Algevon was a rebound magnet. His great foot work was on full display while he showed off an arsenal of post moves and mid range jumpers that kept defenses guessing. He led the fast break a few times and hit his open team mates. His stellar play got him selected to the top 20 all star game which he just so happened to dominate. He has sneaky athleticism that he showed off with a power dunk through traffic for the first play of the all star game. Mr. Eichelberger is going to have to start stepping out of the post more. He has to continue working on his jump shot and ball handling. If he does, he has a chance to be a special player. Algevon Eichelberger is a Nations Elite Prospect!!

     Edrice Adebayo is basically a young man in a grown mans body. He is super athletic and can jump out of the gym. During camp Edrice ran the floor well and was a blocking machine during game play. When he was in transition he finished well at the rim. He was teamed up with VJ King and Christian Turner during game play. It was a treat to see him in action with high caliber players getting him the ball. He was a top 20 allstar game selection and he deserved it. For the next phase of his career (high school) he needs to get his foot work together and get some good post moves to go along with the nice mid range shot he has. This kids future is very bright. I know I'm going to see him on somebodies D1 squad in a few years. He is a Nations Elite Prospect!
