The annual Spiece Run-N-Slam in Fort Wayne was a loaded event filled with elite talent. The big names performed as you would expect with impact performances on the big stage. In addition to those well established prospects, a few under-the-radar prospects used this weekend to raise their stock.
Here are a few of the lesser known names that stood out at the Run-N-Slam.
I. Cameron Brooks-Harris (2018/6’7/OH Nova) – Cameron had a great weekend at Spiece. He showed a diverse skillset and the ability to play multiple spots on the floor. He really thrived getting to the rim off closeouts and finishing well with either hand. He’s a really good athlete that runs the floor with nice verticality and body control. Perhaps the biggest revelation for Brooks-Harris was his improved shooting touch. He knocked down several catch and shoot threes throughout the weekend. He also flashed some playmaking skills as an on-ball creator. On a few occasions Cameron was able to create separation from change of direction dribbles. Brooks-Harris has a ton of tools to work with, coupled with great length and the ability to add 20-25 pounds without losing mobility. He projects to be a combo-forward at the next level once he adds mass/strength and refines his skillset. Really good upside for sure, mid-major D1 schools should be all over Brooks-Harris.
II. Jordan Ray (2018/6’3/The Family) – Jordan played extremely well this weekend and certainly made the most of his opportunities. He knocked down shots from distance consistently all weekend long. Against OH Nova in the Family’s opening game Friday night, Ray buried multiple threes off the catch and displayed range out to 25 feet. He was more comfortable as on-ball player than we’ve seen in the past and knocked down some shots off the dribble this weekend as well. He also played with great intensity on the other side of the court. Really liked what I saw from Ray on the defensive end, he moved his meet well and had active hands. As an on-ball defender, he made life difficult on the opposition. Jordan has a great looking stroke with a quick release, plus athleticism, and a great motor. He’s definitely one to watch moving toward the summer.
III. Tyron Mosley (2018/6’5/Illinois Wolves) – This was our first time viewing Mosley live, and he was quite the revelation. At 6’5 with great length and a good frame, Tyron has all the physical tools for a perimeter player. From a skillset standpoint, he looked really fluid as a bigger point guard. He displayed really good change of speed and was able to create space of the dribble. Tyron buried a couple of midrange jumpshots off the bounce and looked really comfortable as an on-ball playmaker. He’s a really good athlete that moves well laterally on the defensive end. The best thing about Mosley at this point is upside, he has a lot of tools that can be further developed to make him a really high-end, unique prospect. Tyron is certainly a Division I caliber prospect that coaches should check out during the live evaluation period in July.
IV. Isaiah Speelman (2018/6’6/OH Nova) – Isaiah was one of the most productive players we viewed all weekend at Spiece. He consistently knocked down shots from distance, and was one of the better shooters in a loaded event. However it was his ability to create shots off the bounce that really stood out. Speelman hit a ton of tough, contested shots off the dribble, including a few stepbacks that were really impressive. He displayed really good off-ball instincts, making decisive cuts to make himself an available option rolling to the rim as well. Isaiah currently holds a few Division 2 offers, but we think he has the potential to be a small-ball power forward at the Division I level. With a year of strength and conditioning, and further skill development, there is a lot of potential there.
V. Seth Millner (2018/6’5/The Family) – positional versatility is the name of the game for Seth, he played the 2-4 spots and did a bit of everything. On offense, he knocked down midrange shots off the catch and attacked closeouts from the wing before finishing at the rim. In transition he showed plus athleticism, running the floor well and showed some verticality when finishing. Defensively is where Millner really stood out. He’s a good on-ball defender that can guard 2s and 3s with above average lateral movement and the will to dig in. Seth has a strong build and was able to defend bigger players in the post. He’s solid on the glass with grab and go ability to push the ball up the floor after grabbing a rebound. If Millner continues to develop his ballhandling and playmaking skills his game will go to the next level.
