Ladera Ranch, California - The final stop of the grassroots hoops season for this year began today at the Adidas Gauntlet Finale in Ladera Ranch, California at the Ladera Sports Center. After the 2019 Adidas Summer Championships last week back in Alabama during the live period, a few Adidas grassroots programs came together for one final win or go home finale. Below we find out which prospects stoodout on day one.
2020 SG MarJon Beauchamp - ML20 Enforcers (OR)
After leaving Hoover last weekend averaging 20.5 points per game, Beauchamp was no stranger to the buckets he was getting to lead ML20 Enforcers to a win. The 6-foot-5 plus shooting guard finished with 18 points and converting on a few three point jumpers. He continues to prove why he is one of the greater scorers in the class of 2020. MarJon is an extreme shot maker from the perimeter and actually proved he can get others involved as well with his passing.
2020 PG Bryce Monroe - Team Lillard (CA)
I personally thought Bryce Monroe was impressive last weekend in Hoover. My opinion did not change here on the west coast. Monroe had himself a solid day with Team Lillard, averaging 15.0 points per game in his two games. At 5-foot-11, Bryce shows great toughness, able to get to his spots on the floor, and is a shot making point guard. He has great range from the perimeter and proved he can always make his way inside the opponents defense. Monroe is certainly an underrated prospect in the class.
2020 C Makur Maker - Dream Vision (CA)
One of the best games the 7-foot-0 plus center has had all spring and summer. Maker had one of the top performances of the day today going for 22 points, and 14 rebounds, and with a few blocks. He showed he has the range from deep, hitting a couple three's in Dream Vision's win today. Makur has a good motor on him and is a super glass cleaner when crashing the boards. He has had himself a stock rising type of AAU season and will continue that this weekend.
2020 SG Kerwin Walton - D1 Minnesota (MN)
Kerwin Walton earned himself a tremendous amount of high level offers last week with his outstanding shooting and play on the floor. He carried that momentum over to California today where he went 5-6 from beyond the arc and scorching the nets finishing with 18 points in a win. Walton has been one of the hottest names over the last week or so and he proves why every game. He is a sharpshooter from deep and seems not ever lose his rhythm.
2020 SG Trey Galloway - Indiana Elite (IN)
I believe Trey Galloway does not receive as much credit as he should. He is not the most athletic or flashiest prospect in the class, but he sure knows how to play the right way. Galloway is a 6-foot-5 plus two-guard who is extremely efficient on both ends of the floor. He is a reliable shooter from the perimeter, holds great size at his position, and makes good cuts in the halfcourt sets. He holds sneaky athleticism and can defend fairly well on the defensive side of the ball.
