Suwannee, GA -- Session 4 of the Nike EYBL descended on North Georgia. Here are five front line players that separated themselves from an extremely deep talent pool.
1. C DeAndre Ayton
Class of 2017, 7-1, 235
ESPN 60 rank: 1
Player comparison: Combination of Tim Duncan (San Antonio Spurs) and Ed Davis (Portland Trail Blazers)
Ayton has seemingly never-ending length and a terrific skill set for a player of his size. When you factor in his ability to rebound and block shots, he is a potential first team All-American and one-and-done candidate The five-star center scores in the post with either hand and has an excellent turnaround jumper and hook over his left shoulder. Ayton is a good and willing passer when he draws double coverage as well. He will need to remember to keep his motor running in high gear on every possession and be more conscious to start the game with more of an inside-out approach but his talent, skill and feel are simply in the advance stages. Arizona, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, Maryland and UCLA will battle it out for this front-line difference-maker.
