Crusaders and Supreme College Showcase Recap

Omaha Sports Academy and Lincoln Supreme recently held a college showcase at Union Bank & Trust Sports Complex. It featured players from ages 14U-17U, with most of them being from the OSA/Lincoln Supreme programs. Here were a few standouts from the showcase.

John Mitchell – Lincoln Supreme 15U National/Creighton High School

Mitchell is one of the best in the state at getting buckets, and he’s only a sophomore. He was 5th in the state last year in scoring, as he averaged 24 points a game for his high school squad. He ran with Lincoln Supreme this summer, playing mainly 15U but also joining the 16U squad a few times. His scoring habits didn’t change, as he had multiple 20+ outings. At the College Showcase, he found a lot of success with his outside shot, which opened up driving lanes where he used his crafty finishing abilities to put the ball in the basket.

Ian Medeck – OSA 16U National Freeman/Papillion-La Vista South High School

Medeck was terrific at running in transition and letting his teammates know he was open. His teammates consistently found him and he made sure to finish off 2 whenever there was a defender nearby. Medeck was one of the best communicators that I saw at the camp, which is a very important and usually overlooked talent. He always would be calling out screens, and calling for the ball if he was left open. And when he would catch close to the rim, he would finish strong and off 2 feet, absorbing contact from the defender and using the glass to score.

Caden Reynolds – OSA 17U National Roubicek/Elkhorn High School

Reynolds was torching the net all day. He has a good looking shot that is consistently the same looking jumper each team — his form is polished. He excelled with his catch and shoot ability, but also showed flashes of a good off-the-dribble shooting ability. His teammates knew to find him, especially in the 2nd game, where he was 5/6 from deep. 

Landon Pokorski – Lincoln Supreme 14U National/Gretna High School

Pokorski was dropping dimes all day long, whether it was a full-court find to a teammate in transition, or a slick dump down to the opposite block, Pokorski was finding them with a pass. He even threw a few alley-oop passes in the later games. When he wasn’t busy finding teammates for points, he was scoring them himself. His pass fakes led to a few easy layups or short jumpers. Pokorski is a part of a well-rounded freshman class at Gretna High School.

Chase Lett – OSA 17U National Porter/Papillion-La Vista High School

Lett was one of the most effective rebounders we saw, with a few of those being offensive boards which led to 2nd chance points for his team. They weren’t keeping score on the scoreboards for any of the games, but Lett did all the things that would lead his team to wins. Lett didn’t need to score a ton to be successful, but he scored enough to keep his defenders honest when helping off of him. Lett will be a big piece on his high school team, Papillion-La Vista, and they have the potential to make a deep run this year.

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to
