Never Forget To Elev8 Your Game (Stop 1: Palm Beach County-Delray)
"It doesn't take a Tom Konchalski clone, ardent basketball film analyst, or a methodical wizard of Xs and Os to see the threat Elev8's Kobie Eubanks and Jamall Gregory pose for defenses.
Each ranked in Evan Daniels' top-5 available shooting guards in the Class of 2015, Eubanks and Gregory feed off a radiant co-existence.
Each has adopted a sense of selflessness, ceding the shots to one another, depending on who catches the hot hand.
Eubanks, who shredded a long list down to Oregon, Missouri, Texas, UCLA, and Georgia, features a diversified set of tools.
Beyond considerable range, hard slashing, a dependable pull-up and adequate above-the-rim athleticism, Eubanks has incorporated a face-up game and a mid-post back to the basket presence.
Increasing his ball handling in the half court, Eubanks has unveiled a new knack for quarterbacking the team with both hands.
Gregory, a D.C. native who brings unbridled defensive energy, has expanded his offensive repertoire. The result has been a vastly improved basketball IQ to supplement an electrifying vertical.
While Maryland and VCU are trying to return Gregory to his DMV roots, Minnesota, DePaul, and Kansas State have recently been in pursuit of the 6-foot-3 post-grad.
Eubanks, now one of the nation's most persistently pursued recruits, has already visited Oregon.
"His next two visits are likely UCLA and then maybe Texas," said Elev8 head coach Chad Meyers, whose 20-2 squad has ascended the national mountain following resume victories over Oak Hill, New Hampton, and most recently Hargrave Military Academy."
Butts' suddenly improved court sense, in-game awareness, playmaking acumen, and the development of a reliable 18-20 footer has rendered him an appealing commodity on the high-major market.
Last season, Butts scored primarily on hustle points and short-range jumpers, taking big interior bangers away from the rim.
This season, Butts has tuned up his shot selection and shot creation off the dribble. He's refined his stepback game and grinded away at creating space for his mid-range and shallow-water jumper.
Discipline is not a "dirty" Word, however to have it , u must go through some "Dirt" to get that Treasure! There is NO winning without it!
