UA Next Experience (Bethesda, MD) Top Performers

Nanna Njoku, Detwan Montaque, Victory Naboya, Mechie Johnson, Brayon Freemen & Trey Patterson
Brayon Freeman 6’0 PG Washington, DC – Freeman was arguably the best lead guard in the game.  He displays supreme confidence by either taking the big shot or making a big play in crunch time of games.  Brayon can either run your team or be the primary scorer scoring from all three levels with range out to the 3pt line.  He was the game’s leading 3pt shooter knocking down three in the game.  He finished with 17 points on 6 of 11 shooting also adding 3 rebounds and 3 assists.

Victory Naboya 6’8 PF Upper Marlboro, MD – Victory is a long lean athlete that can run the floor very well.  He is playing above the rim and right now is an elite defender protecting the rim and grabbing defensive rebounds.  His offensive game is a work in progress as he figures out his go to moves which will make him even more of a top recruit.  Naboya finishes well around the rim getting offensive rebound put backs or receiving assists from his teammates.  He finished with 12 points on 6 of 10 field goals 12 rebounds (game high) and multiple blocks.  This kid is a big time prospect.

Nnana Njoku 6’9 C Newark, DE – Nnana is a throwback center that is big, strong and skilled.   Offensively he is ahead of his time as he can score from the low block, mid or high post showing he can knock down the elbow jumper.  He has a great back to the basket game with soft hands and a soft touch.  He has moves and counter moves hitting you with drop steps and baby hooks and once he gets position you can’t move him or really stop him.  Njoku rebounds well and can block shots on the defensive end.  He finished with 10 points shooting 5 for 7 from the field adding a few rebound and blocks.

Detwan Montague 6’8 PF Baltimore, MD – Montague is a solid athlete that continues to improve every time we see him.  Like most bigs at his age they are more impactful on the defensive end as they are work in progress on the offensive end.  Detwan runs the floor well in transition and can finish with either hand around the rim and blocks shots on the defensive end.  You got to love his toughness and aggressive style of play on both end of the floor trying to dunk everything on offense and challenging every shot on defense.  He finished with 17 points on 8 of 9 field goal attempts.

Trey Patterson 6’8 WF Somerset, NJ – Patterson could arguably be the number one player in the 2021 class.  Very skilled with size and athleticism Trey can do it all.  His offensive package is advanced as he can score inside or outside and has range out to the three point line.  He is a mismatch problem as he really doesn’t have any weaknesses.  We saw him drive to the basket and finish in traffic and through contact and drive to the basket and finish with runners or floaters.  The future is bright as Trey already playing 16U as a rising freshman so he will be playing 17U for 3 years and we project Patterson as one of the most recruited players in the 2021 class.  He finished with 12 points on 5 of 7 shooting and added 5 rebounds.

Demetrius Johnson 5’11 PG Garfield, OH – A pure PG that is an elite passer, Meechie has flair to his game with swag and confidence for days.  He has a great handle that he uses to get anywhere he wants on the court either to score or make a play for one of his teammates.  Johnson has range out to the three point line as he knocked two down in the game.  He finished with 10 points on 4 of 9 shooting adding 5 rebounds and a game high 6 assists.
