NCAA UNDERGROUND 2017 - Five players to follow....

....ready for your European team

PG – MARQUIS WRIGHT (SIENA) – Point guard. 5-11 (maybe) and 160 pounds… but his decision making and his ability to involve teammates are rare skills. Confident with his outside shot, also beyond the arc, has a very quick move on his pullup jumper and basketball vision with high level passing ability. Strong personality… against Monmouth had 36 to show everyone Justin Robinson is not the best guard in the conference (…but JR had 40 and the W…).

SG – JEREMY MORGAN (NORTHERN IOWA) – The Ben Jacobson basketball school is always a good one to prepare your pro career. Jeremy is a creative guard with the ability to score in a flash off the dribble or create for teammates with his eyes always high looking for an open man. Not a fighter defensively but long arms and timing for the block (1.2 per game) makes him a very versatile player on both hands.

SG – PATRICK COLE (NC CENTRAL) – Eagles fly on the MEAC, and their dominance is led by (point G Dajuan Graf and...) Patrick Cole. Not shy in taking offensive initiatives, he can count on a great outside shot and on strong moves going to the rim. Loves to put his body on defenders and exploit the contact. He’s got also good vision and ability to create for teammates. Not overly athletic but for sure he’s gonna make 20 points somewhere in the world as a pro.

SF – SHAWN PRUDHOMME (SOUTHERN) – Dynamic player, forced to play as a four, he’s actually a small forward who's got the ambition to evolve as a shooting guard. He doesn’t recognize good defense compared to a crazy block and in the offensive end doesn’t really understand spacing but… there’s a big but… he’s so athletic, skilled and has the ability to create out of nothing in the offense that he can score 20 in a half easily just by following his basketball instinct. In defense he shows amazing energy and the ability to guard outside and inside with the same great results. With that energy, shooting around 40% from 3-points is a remarkable number.

C – EMMANUEL OMOGBO (COLORADO STATE) – Rams are in a strong run in the Mountain West and, together with Clavell, this big shooting 40% from threes is one of the reason why. Averages double double and his long arms are a nightmare for the opponents both at rebound and in the defensive end where he’s also very quick on his feet far from the rim. In the offense he can hit from mid-range and is extremely vertical when receiving on the move. Right now a good dynamic center for Europe, if he puts something off the dribble in his technical baggage, the League could pay attention.
