Thursday, March 5, 2015 National Round-Up - Four For the Money Ready For the Show

Name: Tramon Mark

Position: Point Guard / Shooting Guard

Grad. Class: 2020

AAU Club: God First Crusaders

Height: 5'9

Weight: 125

Tramon Mark possess high level ball handling skills that allow him to play both backcourt positions; displays the ability to score the rock efficiently and at a high clip as well as having the vision, passing, and playmaking ability to make those around him better. High IQ player who operates well situationally understanding spacing and two-man game situations as well as post-entry and time/score. Shoots well from all 3 levels and can finish in the paint. Love his leadership qualities and his focus. Team first player who does whatever it takes to win.

Name: Francis Okoro

Position: Power Forward / Center

Grad. Class: 2019

AAU Club: We All Can Go All-Stars

Height: 6'9

Weight: 225

Francis Okoro is quickly developing into one of the top players in the class of 2019 in the country. The body and frame, size, strength, and length is already grown man status and ready for the next level. May possibly already be the best post defender as well as best help side defender/shot blocker. We love the motor that he plays with and he displays it regardless of game and situation – this alone will take Okoro far. He get the job done on both ends of the floor but remains somewhat raw offensively; love his rebounding prowess and shows immense next level talent in the transition running the floor and playing with power – he stays in attack mode and is capable of changing the game without having anything ran for him. A coach’s dream roster member.

Name: Jaheim Tanksley

Position: Point Guard

Grad. Class: 2019

AAU Club: Undecided

Height: 5’6

Weight: 120

Jaheim Tanksley is pure PG who is a talented playmaker with natural instincts and understanding of how to play the game, put the ball in the basket, and set up the defense and his teammates. After a year off in the lab to hone his skill set to an elite level he reappeared on the scene this summer. Tanksley is a able to slash in small spaces and possesses a penetration, push/pull game that translates very well to the next level. He's smooth and his strength and athleticism combined with a tremendous handle and deceptively quick first step. He has little wasted motion on the shot and release and can space the court with the jumper as well. With the season ramping up as we write the New Jersey native is rumored to be open to hearing offers for his services – better contact him quickly as quality PG's are not easy to find.


Name: “Meechie” Johnson

Position: Point Guard

Grad. Class: 2021

AAU Club: Ohio Basketball Club

Johnson is quickly becoming one of the most exciting players in the state of Ohio and the nation is looking forward to him taking the national stage this spring and summer. He has been selected to the USA National Select roster and recently tour it up at the NEO Exposure camp in his home state. A combination guard that can score and distribute the ball at this juncture but clearly will operate as a scoring lead guard at the next level. Shows an excellent and deceptively quick first step as he slashes in between defenders. Uses a very crafty rhythm dribble that he can step into three point shoots with. We also have seen that he can get in a scoring flow and rhythm and is more than capable of dominating possessions in transition and the halfcourt . Game changing confidence and skill and plays with a chip on his shoulder feeling he is the best player the gym – very soon he very well may be no matter the venue.
