Shun Williams, owner and creator of On the Radar Hoops, hosted the last event of the 2020 AAU season this past weekend in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The event was loaded with top tier talent and teams from the South and beyond. Unfortunately, Sunday's games were cancelled due to an altercation that took place late Saturday night between two programs, but overall, Shun put on an amazing event as usual. Below we will take a look at which prospects stoodout during the first two days of the Summer Jam event.
2021 C Jonas Aidoo - Team Curry (NC) - Jonas Aidoo made a statement this weekend with his play on the floor this past weekend at the On the Radar Hoops Summer Jam event. The 6-foot-11 plus big man posted 15.3 PPG and 10.6 RPG in three games with Team Curry (NC) throughout. Aidoo displayed his offensive versatility, stepping out the paint and hitting perimeter jumpers and elbow shots. His long arms to secure rebounds and alter shots on the defensive end was another key attribute that stood out throughout the weekend. Jonas is certainly an underrated name in the 2021 class who should receive much more praise this high school season.
2021 F Jabari Smith Jr. - Atlanta Celtics (GA) - 2021 forward Jabari Smith Jr. has "pro" written all over him. The 6-foot-9 plus forward continues to prove his elite versatility on both ends of the floor in every game. Smith Jr. displayed his elite pull up jumper from the post, outstanding rebounding ability, ball handling skills, and footwork on both offense and defense. Jabari plays with such finesse, able to score from inside the post on multiple occasions. He handles the ball like a guard at times, makes his presence known defensively, and holds such a nice smooth stroke on his jump shot. Smith posted a 20-point and 12-rebound game against Reform Sports Training (TN) this past weekend.
2021 PG Elijah Hawkins - New World (DC) - One of the biggest sleeper prospects in the 2021 class coming into this high school season should be Elijah Hawkins, point guard out of powerhouse DeMatha Catholic (MD). Hawkins might lack size at the moment at 5-foot-10, but the kid can for sure play the game of basketball. Elijah was one of the most impressive prospects throughout the weekend. He holds a high IQ, makes nice reads, a pit-bull defender, a reliable shot maker, and plays with great toughness. Hawkins will be a major steal for any college program as he is an excellent lead guard with a Kyle Lowry type of skill set.
2021 PG Kameron Jones - Reform Sports Training (TN) - Marquette commit, 2021 PG Kameron Jones, made his name known this past weekend in Rock Hill, South Carolina. One of the South's top prospects, Jones shot lights out in his matchup against the Atlanta Celtics (GA) scoring a total of 28 points while knocking down multiple three pointers. He holds positional size, able to knock down shots off the bounce, can create his own offense, and is a capable 3-level scorer. The 6-foot-4 point guard should certainly make his way into the rotation in a couple seasons at Marquette.
2021 PG Wesley Cardet Jr. - Team Breakdown (FL) - Wesley Cardet Jr. has been a name that has been buzzing around over the last couple of months and his game on the floor certainly proved why. Cardet Jr. posted multiple 20+ point games this weekend in Rock Hill, South Carolina with Team Breakdown (FL). He holds incredible size at the point guard position at 6-foot-6, was consistently in attack mode when he possessed the ball, finished through contact, had some explosive finishes, and connected on several jump shots. Wesley's stock continues to rise and should continue to rise as we slowly approach the high school season in a couple of months.
2023 F Ryan Bewley - Team Breakdown (FL) - The 6-foot-9 highly rated 2023 forward Ryan Bewley showed national scouts why he is considered a high rated prospect in the 2023 class. Bewley displayed his unique skill set at his size. His versatility on both ends of the floor, high motor and energy, perimeter shooting, and finishing plays at the rim were just a few key attributes that was shown throughout the weekend. Ryan is very productive when he is on the floor and is a stat sheet stuffer some may say. He holds a great ability securing rebounds, can handle the ball fairly well, and is able to step out the paint and connect on jump shots from three.
2021 F Jusaun Holt - Team Dickerson (GA) - Thought 2021 forward Jusaun Holt was not recognized enough this past weekend in Rock Hill, SC. The 6-foot-7 wing looked much more confident offensively and defensively showing his versatility. Holt displayed his competitvie edge guarding multiple positions, his perimeter shooting, toughness, and high motor throughout the weekend. His matchup against Team Breakdown (FL), where he scored 23 points, grabbed 8 boards, had 2 steals, and blocked 4 shots, is where he stoodout the most. Holt will be an extremely solid addition to any college program on his final list, which feature Georgia, Wake Forest, Xavier, Miami, Alabama, and Washington.
2022 PG Scoota Henderson - Game Elite (GA) - If it was not for the outbreak of COVID-19, 2022 PG Sterling "Scoota" Henderson would have had a stock rising grassroots season running in the Adidas Gauntlet 3SSB. With his 2022 team playing up a division this past weekend, Henderson somewhat dominated the older competition. He posted an impressive 28 points (10-20 FG), 5 assists, and 6 steals in a win Friday night. Henderson's athletic ability as a point guard, physical profile, being able to get downhill, finishing ability, and active hands defensively always seems to standout. Scoota continues to prove why he is one of the most highly rated guards in the 2022 class.
2023 PG Robert Dillingham - Team Charlotte (NC) - One of the highly anticipated names buzzing around throughout the summer, Robert Dillingham, showed out this past weekend in Rock Hill, SC. The 2023 6-foot-0 point guard displayed his improved skill set running up with Team Charlotte 17U. Dillingham has certainly improved physically as well since the ending of the high school season. He is transitioning into being more of a point guard, was able to get his teammates scoring opportunities, showed his quick, shifty ball handling skills, and scored from all three levels of the floor. Robert could one day be considered one of the best scorers in his class.
