Adidas Invitational: Breakout Performers

Jeremie Tyler and David Wacker were two who really jumped out at the adidas Invitational, but they were far from the only players who boosted their stock

Quick Take: Tyler had to miss a pair of games due to a head injury, but when he was playing he was putting on a show. More of a shooting guard, Tyler got hot and was hitting from deep and in the mid-range. Also Tyler is a high level athlete. His handle still needs work, but Tyler was excellent against high level competition and showed he can easily compete at the mid-major level and possibly higher.

Quick Take: The bottom line is Davis can flat out put the ball in the basket. A gifted scorer, Davis has to do a lot of things for his team to win and he is doing them at a high level. His ball handling has improved, and he is also a good athlete with length. Still what he did best was make shots from deep as well as get to the rim and put the ball in the basket even when contested.

Quick Take: McIntosh definitely picked the right time to play well. He absolutely dominated a strong Dream Vision team, and did so in a variety of ways. McIntosh is at his best as a knockdown shooter, but he showed a good ability to get to the rim, and took over in big moments. He continues to see his stock soar, and played his way into numerous scholarship offers.

Quick Take: It wasn't that Coffey was an unknown, but it wasn't known he was quite this good. The 2016 prospect was absolutely dominant all week long in leading his team to victories. A long athlete with point guard skills, Coffey can play every position in the backcourt and is athletic enough to guard all over. The scary thing is he is just now figuring out how good he is, and the sky is the limit.

Quick Take: Wacker began to get some serious buzz during the high school season, however not many had seen him. At the adidas Invitational he proved that buzz was justified. Wacker showed an ability to score on the post, he hit jumpers out to the three point line, and showed off good hands. Also while not being a great athlete, he is a solid rebounder. Wacker is a fundamental hard worker, and showed there is no doubt he can play at the high major level.

Quick Take: Keys is the type of long athletic big guy that come out of the South quite often. Playing with New Orleans Elite, Keys made an impression with how well he runs the court and the fact that he finishes everything with a dunk. Keys is also a pretty good shot blocker and rebounder. Right now he is raw, but the physical tools alone make him someone who should end up on a lot of high-major schools radars.
