Scouting Report: Adidas Unrivaled

We take a look at how some of the Illinois prospects, two seniors and a junior, fared at Adidas Unrivaled after seeing them in action.

The recent Adidas Unrivaled event featured some real talent from coast to coast as top recruits descended upon Chicago for 4 days of action. Here's a look at how three key Illinois recruits fared.

Illinois Prospects

PF - Carlton Bragg (Cleveland, OH)

Bragg was active on both ends of the floor throughout the event. His improved physicality backed up his incessant motor and made him more effective as a scorer and as a shot blocker.

Bragg displayed an improved handle and has even improved his leaping ability a bit. His timing when blocking shots has taken a step up over the last year. He tried to do a little too much from the outside around the perimeter, but at times he had the mid-range jumper falling.

Several times he was the first guy out on the break and finished with intensity and power.

PF - Tony Bradley Jr. (Bartow, FL)

Bradley isn't the most athletic guy out there, but he knows how to use his length and skill to get the job done. His impressive 7'4" wingspan helps him collect rebounds and get his shot around his opponents near the basket.

For a rising junior, Bradley displayed a vast array of post moves off of the block and knows how to establish and seal his post position. Many of his points came off of rebounds. He wasn't flashy by any means, but his productivity was hard to deny.

PF - Josh Sharma (Northfield, MA)

Sharma had a bit of a tough time when facing a stronger or more physical big, but in transition and in the mid-range he used his superior athleticism and leaping ability to his advantage.

He knows that he will need to add strength to be able to consistently win battles down low, but he has the unique ability to outrun most other post players down the floor.

Sharma moves well without the ball and is skilled in the high ball screen offense, but needs to establish himself more in the post to be a legitimate scoring threat on the block on a consistent basis.
