Duncanville, TX – Coach Pete’s Lone Star Challenge was held July 19-20, 2017 at Duncanville Fieldhouse. Prospects from all over the south came to attend the camp that has been a destination year-after-year. Area Codes Basketball was there to evaluate these prospects and there were 9 that stood out. Their evaluations along with links to their highlight videos (click the name) can be found below in no particular order:
6’0” Noah Savage (Round Rock, TX – Round Rock HS 2019) – Savage was a terror at times during camp with his ability to be disruptive on both the offensive and defensive end. As a floor general, he has the quickness, motor, and will to help lead a team and is always looking to attack.
6’3” Alec Tribble (Fort Worth, TX – Keller Timber Creek HS 2018) – Tribble was fun to watch move without the basketball. The lefty guard was constantly making the defense work and finding openings where his teammates could get him the ball. As a good shooter and athlete, Tribble will fit in nicely with someone’s system at the next level.
6’2” Adam Hassouneh (San Antonio, TX – Reagan HS 2018) – Hassouneh was a freight train going to the basket. With broad shoulders and a good burst of speed off the bounce, Hassouneh was able to get in the lane and finish well going 12 for 16 inside paint throughout the course of camp. The Reagan high school pro
6’3” Alec Grandstaff (Rowlett, TX – Rockwall HS 2019) – When you go 4 for 5 from inside the arc and 13 for 26 from outside the arc, it’s hard not to argue that Grandstaff was one of the top shooters at the camp. Whether it was a spot up three, off the dribble, or coming off a screen Grandstaff showed that he could knock down contested shots at a high rate and made the defense pay for going under screen or having a hand down.
5’11” Sydney Shipp (Fulshear, TX – St. Pius X HS 2019) – Shipp was a blur in transition and coming off ball screens. The junior-to-be showed the ability to get into the teeth of the defense and make plays. Shipp was also one of the more disruptive players on the defensive end during camp as well.
6’4” Josh Smith (Bentonville, AR – Bentonville HS 2019) – With good size and skills that have room to trend upward, Smith was a promising prospect by the camp’s end. Smith showed the ability to take the defense off the dribble and knock down the open shot. With two years left in the tank, he could be one to watch for programs in Arkansas and surrounding areas.
6’1” Jordan Tomkinson (East Grand Folks, MN – Sacred Heart HS 2018) – With a 3.8 GPA, Tomkinson is a kid that high academic schools should have their eyes on. By camp’s end he showed the ability to take the ball off the bounce, knock down the open shot, and played with a motor that was noticeable throughout camp. He will be a more than solid addition to a program at the next level.
6’2” Michael Simmons (Fort Worth, TX – Mansfield Legacy HS 2019) – As a long and lanky guard with some quicks, Simmons is one to make note of. The talented Fort Worth product showed flashes of what he could become in the next two years. Look for him to make a jump in terms of his development.
6’4” Marvis Odia II (Sugarland, TX – George Ranch HS 2018) – Odia’s best years of basketball could very well be ahead of him as he continues to polish skills to go along with the talent he brings to the floor. The long wing from Sugarland was active around the rim and displayed a motor that was undeniable at times. With a good body to grow into and athleticism, Odia is one to keep an eye on.
