DraftNasty went inside the game of former Oklahoma point guard Trae Young during the 2016 Nike Peach Jam. Along with fellow 2018 NBA Draft prospect Michael Porter, Jr., Young helped lead Mokan Elite to the championship. For his efforts, he earned Co-MVP honors with Porter, Jr. During this past season at Oklahoma, he earned consensus All-American honors after leading the nation in points per game (27.4) and assists per game (8.7). Along the way, he shot 42.3-percent from the field, 36.1-percent from three-point range and 86.1-percent from the free throw line.
Arizona’s Deandre Ayton became the Wildcats first consensus All-American in nearly two decades. The 7’1, 260-pound center averaged 20.1 points, 11.6 rebounds and 1.9 blocked shots per game. Blessed with a soft shooting touch, long arms and excellent footwork, he is widely regarded as the potential No. 1 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. We went inside the 2017 McDonald’s All-American’s game during the summer of 2016 while competing for California Supreme Elite’s AAU squad at the Nike EBYL Peach Jam.
Duke PF Marvin Bagley III averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds per game in 2017-18 to earn consensus first-team All-American honors. DraftNasty went inside his game the last two summers during the Nike EBYL Peach Jam while he starred for the Nike Phoenix Phamily AAU squad. During the 2017 Peach Jam, Bagley III averaged 24.6 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists 2.6 blocks and 1.6 steals per game. His versatile game gives future NBA suitors plenty of options.
Wendell Carter, Jr. averaged 13.5 points and 9.1 rebounds per game for the Duke Blue Devils in his freshman campaign. The 6’10, 251-pound power forward has a good chance to hear his named called in the 2018 NBA Draft lottery later this month. We go inside his game in our video spotlight.
Before Knox averaged 15.1 points and 5.4 rebounds for the Kentucky Wildcats in 2017-18, he was tearing up the Nike EBYL circuit for his E1 T1 United AAU squad. The former Wildcat star has nearly a 7-foot wingspan and 9-foot standing reach while standing 6-foot-8. He is a certain first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Former Texas center Mohamed Bamba brings an underrated game and 7-foot-10-inch wingspan (the longest ever recorded ) to the NBA. The former Westtown School (Pa.) product stood out for the PSA Cardinals in his matchup with current Kentucky center Nick Richards during the 2016 Nike EBYL Peach Jam. The performance was only a sign of things to come. As a freshman for the Longhorns, Bamba averaged 12.5 points, 10.9 rebounds and finished second in the nation in blocked shots per game (3.7). Along the way, he shot 54.1-percent from the field. We went inside the game of the 2017-18 1st team All-Big 12 defender during our visit to check him in July 2016.
