June 2, 2016

Garden Grove, Calif. -- The third installment of the Under Armour Association AAU basketball circuit took place from May 28-29 and the event allowed for a closer look at a number of standout players.

Below are's quick prospect evaluations:

Jalek Felton, 6'4"- Class of 2017

Felton has off-the-charts athleticism. He will give you the highlight plays, whether it be a dunk or a nifty pass. In addition, from time to time he can also stroke the deep perimeter shot. The North Carolina commit exudes a calm demeanor and everything he does seems to come easily for him.

Naji Marshall, 6'7" - Class of 2017

Marshall is an excellent team leader who possesses the length, strength, and versatility to play either small or power forward. Comfortable playing inside, he will get to loose balls and create more possessions for his team because of the quickness for his frame. According to, Marshall's top five schools are Pitt, Virginia Tech, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Xavier.

Nate Watson 6'9" - Class of 2017

The Bishop O'Connell center is a powerfully built presence with the strength compete down low. He finishes a high percentage of his opportunities because he takes the shortest path to the basket. Watson will also fit very well with a running basketball team that needs size along with speed. He has received offers from Georgetown, Georgia Tech, and Kansas among others.

Myles Cale, 6'4" - Class of 2017

The Seton Hall commit is viewed by many as a combo guard, although he is probably more suited for off-guard. He is careful with the basketball and takes high percentage shots. Cale, who can take it to the hoop whenever needed, just needs to finish more consistently. Has very good leadership skills and is willing to play a team game.

Lionel Figueroa, 6'5" - Class of 2017

This sharpshooting off-guard/small forward, has all the versatility needed to be successful at the collegiate level. He can also just get a rebound off the boards and start a fastbreak all by himself. However, he does need to be more assertive (demand the ball more) and consistent throughout the game.

Tyshon Alexander, 6'4" - Class of 2017

Starring for the famed Oak Hill Academy and committed to Creighton, Alexander is fundamentally sound and has a great understanding of his strengths. His accurate long-range shooting allows him to create spacing for his team. In addition, he has the mentality and physical tools to be an excellent defender.

Gerald Liddell, 6'8" - Class of 2018

Currently rated in the top ten of his class, Liddell exhibited upper-level athleticism with smooth, yet powerful dunks. He is a good and willing passer, with superior vision for a small forward.  He is rapidly developing every aspect of his all-around game, which has a very high ceiling. Liddell has received offers from N.C. State, Kansas, and UCLA among others.

Devon Dotson, 6'2" - Class of 2018

One of the better junior class point guard, Dotson is strong at the point of attack and gets to the hoop with regularity. The Charlotte native always has good control of his dribble and can dominate on both sides of the ball. He is a natural floor general who demonstrates an excellent command of his team's offense. He has received offers from Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina among others.
