EDMONTON,AB–Although there was a lack of Senior personnel at the National ID camp held in Edmonton, Alberta, the junior and cadet age groups sure didn’t disappoint! The following are NPH player evaluations on the top prospects at the event through various age groups.

Otas Iyekekpolor | 2015 | 6’6 | SF | Lillian Osborne | Edmonton, AB

 

NPH welcomes Otas Iyekekpolor to the national radar. Otas is raw on the offensive end, but his physical tools are so far advanced that he is able to make up for it with sheer athleticism. He is incredibly long for his age, and has a good understanding of his role on the court. He could use some work to refine his jumper, but as he is just entering grade 10, there is plenty of time for that. For now the 6’6 wing/forward will continue to terrorize players in his class.

Adonis Monfort-Palomino | 2015 | 5’6 | PG | Sir Winston Churchill | Calgary, AB

 

Adonis is a feisty guard who makes up for his lack of size with a ruthless intensity. On both sides of the ball he is aggressive and does not shy away from contact at the rim. His mid-range jumper is impressive in transition, and he can get the tear drop to fall when he goes to the rim.

Deiter Posein | 2013 | 6’8 | PF | Bishop Grandin | Calgary, AB

The big fundamental. Posein posesses great size and strength comparable to the top in his class, and he mixes it in with solid moves down low. While his foot speed could use some work, once he gets set up in the half-court, he is nearly impossible to defend. He sealed his man on several occasions and connected on smooth baby hooks.

John Hegwood Jr. | 2013 | 6’4 | W | Bishop Grandin | Calgary, AB

 

Hegwood is a versatile wing that can seemingly do it all. He has an impressive handle for a player with his size and build, and he can either break you down off the dribble or bang you in the post. In addition, Hegwood has good vision and willing passer; rare for a player of at his position and age, but he can distribute with ease.

Strahinja Kucinar | 2012 | 6’6 | SG | Western Canada | Calgary, AB

Interest: Trinity Western, U of Calgary, U of Toronto

This Serbian sharpshooter a walking mismatch. You would assume that a high school player with his size would spend his time down low, but he is running the break and knocking down pull up threes. Kucinar has great vertical and finished at the rim emphatically on several occasions. He can break you down with either his right or his left, making it even more difficult to defend him.

Edgar Ndayishimiye | 2012 | 6’5 | G | St. Anne’s | Calgary, AB

 

Verbal Commit: Impact Academy Prep School

Edgar can do it all, and has the size, skill and aggression needed to excel at the next level. He is fearless when going to the rim and uses his great body control to finish in traffic. His size and length for a point guard is excellent, and once he builds muscle mass, he will be able to compete at a very high level.
