PRESS RELEASE; 5 PLAYERS TO WATCH IN THE UNDERCLASSMAN ALL-AMERICAN GAME IN INDY
(April 5, 2016) – The Underclassman All-American Game featuring 20 of the top players from the 2018 and 2019 classes are scheduled to invade Ben Davis High School (Indianapolis) on Wednesday. The event features two games — a National game and a Select game. A live feed is available at suvTV.com.
We’ve zeroed in on five of the top players scheduled to attend that you won’t want to miss.
1. Nazreon Reid, Roselle Catholic (Roselle, N.J.), F, 2018
Why you can’t miss him: Reid is ranked No. 6 overall in the ESPN 25 and creates matchup problems because of his size (6-foot-8) and versatility. Reid burst onto the scene two years ago when he was the best player at the CP3 Rising Stars Camp in North Carolina. Since then he’s shown promise for the Lions, averaging 11 points and four rebounds a game this past season.
2. Emmitt Williams, IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.), F, 2018
Why you can’t miss him: Williams is one of the most athletic players in the 2018 class with a motor that is relentless. Williams, who is ranked No. 10 overall in the ESPN 25, creates posters with his bounce and has already gotten a strong start to the summer ball season with a dominating performance at the Showtime Ballers tournament where he earned all-tournament honors last week.
3. Jamie Lewis, Westlake (Atlanta), PG-SG, 2018
Why you can’t miss him: Lewis is ranked No. 18 overall in the ESPN 25 and puts on a show whenever he steps onto the hardwood. Lewis has the innate ability to find teammates with precise passes, breakdown the defense with crafty ball handling and score at all three levels. Good luck stopping that.
4. Tyger Campbell, La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.), PG, 2019
Why you can’t miss him: Campbell has had a buzz for a couple of years as the “next great point guard” and he backed up the hype at the DICK’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals last weekend. Campbell was strong all week, but really turned heads when he posted 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in the DICK’s Nationals title loss to Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.).
5. Rechon Black, Concord (Concord, N.C.), PG, 2018
College: North Carolina
Why you can’t miss him: Black is a 6-foot-6 point guard who creates matchup problems because of his size and versatility. Black can post smaller guards up and uses his length and reach to guard all five positions. Black is ranked No. 19 overall in the ESPN 25.
