Best of Both Worlds: The Giant Takeaways

CYPRESS, Texas — Yesterday, I attended Marcus Sloan’s Best of Both Worlds camp highlighting a few of the top prospects in the 2022 class. However, this platform was all about the nationally rated men in the middle who left me with some encouraging thoughts before leaving the Houston area:

ZUBY EJIOFOR SHOULD BE A NATIONALLY RANKED PROSPECT

A prospect that does not garner the national nor local attention he deserves, Zuby Ejiofor was arguably the best player in the gym yesterday. There is no question that the strong and explosive big man is deserving of a top ten spot in the state of Texas. A field of which all included players are ranked nationally. 

 

Zuby screams production while simultaneously screaming potential with his physical gifts.  Standing at 6-foot-9, he was a force to be reckoned with on both ends. He controlled the game with his bouncy athleticism that allowed him to be all over the rim in any given situation. No matter the matchup, his motor never fluctuated as he propelled his squad to an undefeated record Wednesday afternoon.

 

The three-star center says he has mainly heard from Purdue and TCU as of late, but that is guaranteed to change.

IWUCHUKWU CONTINUES TO MAKE HIS CASE

After a great showing at the Texas Hardwork Scrimmages and Alamo City Hoops Centex Hoopfest, Iwuchukwu continued to display high-level flashes of what he can become in the near future.

 

The four-star seven-footer is beginning to understand the value of running the floor. There were plenty of times where he sprinted, beat the defense down the floor, and in result, received outlet passes for easy finishes at the rim. His mid-range game is promising and will only get better with more repetition.

CHUKWU EARNED HIS BRUISER BADGE

It was my first time getting an in-person look at Charles Chukwu, and before he stepped on the floor I already knew he defined the term “bruiser.”

 

His willingness to initiate contact inside and seek every ball on the offensive glass is an early demonstration of the elite upside he has a player who can provide interior toughness at the next level. The three-star center also runs the floor and is still learning how to make the right reads when receiving the ball on the low post. 

 

Chukwu is currently enjoying a local recruitment with a collection of offers Houston Baptist, Rice, TCU, Texas A&M, and Tulsa

D.L.O.D. {DONT LEAVE OUT DOK}

A recent move-in from California, it is now time to add Dok Muordar to the list of centers to recruit in Texas’ loaded 2022 class.

Standing at 6-foot-11 pushing seven feet, Muordar’s activity, early offensive skillset, and personality is very intriguing. The southpaw owns a go-to turnaround jumper inside the paint and has the soft hands required to grab rebounds and catch passes around the basket. 

 

With his potential and drive to improve, expect for Muordar to enjoy a Division I recruitment moving forward.  

OTHER CAMP STANDOUTS…

Dubem Muoneke looked to torture the rim each time he had an opportunity. Undersized at 6-foot-4, the power forward out of Cypress Ranch High School has the genes, frame, and leaping ability to be a ten-plus per game rebounding resource throughout his high school career. Muoneke currently holds an offer from Rice

 

…Also add Adam Stewart to the list of big men who stood out at the camp. His hands and touch around the basket have improved over the past year. Once he finds comfort with all of his movements on the floor, the near seven-footer will be sought after. 

 

…Dual-sport athlete Noah Thomas was the biggest sleeper at the camp. The wide-receiver was unstoppable when slashing to the basket. He will have a future at the next level in either sport given his size (6-foot-5) and athletic ability.

 

…In a camp headlined by post players, Chancellor White was the best perimeter player I saw yesterday. The scoring guard can act as a secondary ball-handler with his nice handle and tremendous feel. He is a for sure top twenty-incoming junior in the state of Texas.
