The Southern Exposure Showcase has tipped off in North Augusta, SC during this NCAA “Live- Period. After a partial day of action Friday, and now a full Saturday of games are in the books; It is time for us to open up the notebook and reflect on some of the standout players.
2023/ PG Ty Black of E.A. Prep Stars Adidas Gold 17U has had a really nice showing so far at the Southern Exposure. He has a smooth stroke from behind the arc, and he has been very efficient with his shot. Black’ plays with a good pace and doesn’t get sped up or forced into bad decisions. With his leadership and ability he is a nice prospect to keep track of.
2023 (6’/PG) Sunni Wrice has been putting up big numbers all spring with Juice All Stars 17U. Today he dropped a game high 26pts with Augusta University head coach – Dip Metress sitting court-side. Wrice is a speedy and explosive guard that attacks the basket at a high level. He is a capable shooter, and can control the tempo from the PG spot. Must see for college coaches this spring/summer.
Unsigned Senior, Semajeh Echols played really well today with East Georgia State head coach – Travis Garrett sitting court-side. The forward played a lot bigger than his size (6’7) as he rebounded the ball at a high level. He got a lot done around the basket both offensively and defensively. Echols has a great motor and would be a great late pickup for a Juco or NAIA level program.
2023/F Devontae Turner of the Coastal Bulls 17U has put on a show with a few highlight dunks at the Southern Exposure. He was a force inside the paint blocking and altering shots. He was electrifying when he was able to get loose in transition & even showed he can finish through contact as well. Turner has a nice face-up game in the half court & his motor is always running.
2023 (6’6/G) Khyelle Ingram of Juice All Stars. 17U has been as good as advertised so. He is currently averaging better than 14 points per game & plenty of rebounds here at the Southern Exposure. He has great size (both height & muscle mass) for a guard and he can do a little of everything on the court. We had one a Juco coach, who was on hand tell us “Khyelle is like a ‘Swiss army knife’.” He can guard the 1-5, and plays with a great motor. Ingram is at his best when attacking the rim, but can stroke it from behind the arc as well.
Unsigned Senior, Alec Jones of B.E.S.T. 17U showed why he would be a great late addition to a small college roster. He is a physical guard that does a great job getting to the basket. He has a good handle and is crafty with using his body while driving. He was effective in transition and made timely shots in the clutch! One to see for coaches still looking to complete their roster.
