Scouting Report : Javeon Tolliver – Larry Hughes Elite Camp

Height: 6’0
Class: 2020
Position: Combo Guard
GPA: 
AAU Team: Wisconsin United
High School: Milwaukee Lutheran 

Strengths: Javeon is not a true point guard but definitely has the skill-set to play point. He’s really good at creating for his teammates but even better at creating for himself…and he gets his teammates involved the more he has the ball in his hands. Javeon is one of the better shooters we saw this AAU season and is unstoppable when he gets in the zone. When he starts to fill it with his jumper…he’s tough to stay in front of because of his ability to score at all 3 levels. He isn’t a real strong finisher at the rim but his floater game and pull-up in the lane game is solid. His mid-range game is very strong, and he’s extremely good at getting to his spot on the bounce and pulling up for his jumper. He has a high arc on his shot and good elevation, so it is tough for the defender to block his shot even with his 6’ size. Javeon is smooth with the handle, too. He is very quick with the ball and is able to put together combination-dribble moves without having to really slow down much. This is one of the things that separates him from other guards and labels him more of a combo guard than strictly a shooting guard. 

Improvement Opportunity: Javeon’s biggest issue is his height. He’s not tall and not super cut right now, so defending taller/stronger guards is where he can get bullied around a bit. His quickness makes up for his lack of size, but moving his off the ball defense to guard a 6’4” SG is when he can get exposed some. He doesn’t have a ton of improvement on the offensive end. If anything, we would say his passing ability if he gets moved to PG spot. 

Projection: Javeon could come in at the D2 level and play significant minutes — possibly even start. He has the potential to play low-major D1. We’ll track to see if his scoring prowess continues to escalate and if so, D1s will have to take a look at Javeon.

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

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 info@recruitlook.com.
