Reebok Breakout Challenge Player Evals
Tuesday, 31 July 2012
Roddy Peters
by Alex Schwartz

PHILADELPHIA – The Reebok Breakout Challenge was greatly improved in its second year of existence and the big-time event featured a multitude of talented prospects of all of Division I.
Well over a 100 players came to Philadelphia University for the camp and Recruit Recon was able to see nearly every single one of them, if not all, in action.
Read on for our evaluations of 15 of those players. 
Vitto Brown is a player who has made some major strides in his game over the course of the past year and just keeps getting better. A 6-foot-8 power forward out of Bowling Green (OH), Brown looks to have gotten a bit bigger and has a good overall body. The 2013 prospect displayed nice shot blocking ability and his timing was superb. He is still not a huge offensive threat, but Brown is headed in the right direction as a player.

Tyrek Coger, early in his high school career, Coger had a game that seemed to be well beyond his years. However, understandably, much of that was attributable to simply being bigger than almost all his peers. Coger, a 2013 prospect from Upper Room Christian Academy (NC), has not grown much since starting high school and thus has plateaued a bit. Nonetheless, he remains a quality prospect and is more than capable of producing on the court. Coger, who had committed to Missouri at two different points and is uncommitted right now, is a thick low post player who works around the rim. He is more of an undersized center at 6-foot-8, but Coger uses his body to his advantage down low. The rising senior may not be a star—and very few are—but he is still a solid player.

Zacarry Douglas seems to have changed his game over the past year in terms of the way he goes about things on the offensive end. A 6-foot-8 combo forward out of National Christian Academy (MD), Douglas was more of a tall wing last summer and has been down low on the blocks this summer. The 2013 prospect still blends in his perimeter skills and showed he can step out and connect from 3-point land. Douglas works hard around the cup and if he finds the right inside-outside combination he could become a major matchup nightmare. 

Zena Edosomwan, quite simply, is going to be an absolute beast in the Ivy League. Originally a 2012 prospect from Harvard-Westlake (CA), Edosomwan decided to commit to Harvard, but had to take a prep year in order to go to the elite academic school. Thus, Edosomwan is now a 2013 player and is going to Northfield Mt. Hermon (MA) in the fall. The 6-foot-8 power forward is easily one of the top 75 players in the nation in his new class. Edosomwan has a great motor to go along with some superb strength, which allows him to be very effective in the paint. He is a quality scorer, who did a nice job of finishing around the cup. Additionally, Edosomwan displayed the ability to connect from midrange.

Mike Kobani is a former high school teammate of Zacarry Douglass and NCA, but Kobani is now at Caldwell Academy (NC). A 6-foot-8 class of 2013 power forward, Kobani is a rugged low post player who is very strong. He does a nice job of scoring the ball when around the basket. His strength is a big aspect of what he is able to do, as he does not necessarily have a wide array of post moves. He has not made much improvement in his game over the past year, but remains a quality player.

Peter Miller is a class of 2013 prospect who attends the same school, NMH, that Zena Edosomwan is transferring into. Like Edosomwan, Miller is also a kid who is being looked at by big-time academic schools. On the court, Miller is a different type of player, though. A 6-foot-10 power forward, Miller runs the floor quite well for his size. He appears to have a pretty nice looking perimeter jumper for a guy as tall as him, too. Additionally, Miller is a capable scorer on the low blocks.

Wadley Mompremier is an intriguing player in the class of 2013 who clearly has some nice upside. A 6-foot-10 power forward out of Miami Senior (FL), Mompremier is more of a prospect than a player at this point, but he has superb physical tools. The big man has pretty good length and he can really get up and down the hardwood. His production is lacking, but when Mompremier gets stronger and begins to develop his low post arsenal, he could be a player to watch out for.

Julian Moore is not your typical 6-foot-9 power forward, as the 2013 recruit is much more comfortable beyond the 3-point line than around the cup. Moore is a skilled face-up four man who can knock down shots from the perimeter. The Germantown Academy (PA) standout is a bit thin and needs to get stronger. Additionally, it would be good to see him play with his back to the basket more. Moore, though, does have some ability to attack the rim from the perimeter and is athletic enough to throw down an impressive dunk.

Obinna Oleka had been in the class of 2012, but it looks as though the 6-foot-7 power forward is reclassifying to 2013. Oleka, who attended Florida Christian Institute last year, really impressed at last year’s Reebok Breakout Challenge. He was not as impactful this time around, but Oleka did display the ability to run the floor quite well. Also, the solidly built frontcourt player was able to finish nicely at the rim with some quality jams.

Evan Payne is a quality point guard in the class of 2013. A 6-foot-1 rising senior at Firestone (OH), Payne is a true lead guard who knows how to get his teammates involved. He possesses good court vision that allows him to find the open man and effectively get him the rock. Payne, who is a good athlete, also demonstrated the ability to get to the rack off the bounce. He needs to work on his jump shot, though.

Roddy Peters has improved as much in the past year as any player in the country and has become an easy choice to include in the class of 2013 top 100. A point guard who has great height at 6-foot-4, Peters also has superb length to go along with that. In addition, he has a frame that can add some bulk to it once he gets into a DI strength program. Peters is a good athlete at the one and he can really attack the rim. He is also more than capable of connecting on a midrange jumper.

Donte Reynolds was one of the most impressive performers at the Reebok Breakout Challenge, despite not being one of the bigger names there. Reynolds, a 6-foot-7 combo forward, seems to improve with each game he plays. The bouncy frontcourt player is very productive and also works on the defensive end of the floor. Reynolds is tough around the cup, but he also showed that he can step outside and connect from 3-point land. He is an athletic kid who is clearly on the upswing.

Daniel Robinson of Atlantic Shores Christian (VA) is evidently reclassifying to be a member of the 2013 class. A quality big man, Robinson has superb height at 6-foot-11. In addition, Robinson is also very long. The Old Dominion State standout is quite thin though, and he is going to have to add bulk for when he goes up against bigger, stronger players in college. Overall, Robinson is a kid who clearly has some nice upside, especially if he can indeed get stronger.

Denzel Watts is a solid backcourt player in the class of 2013. The 6-foot-1 prospect out of Flint Carman-Ainsworth (MI), Watts is probably more of a combo guard at this point than a true point. The main aspect of his game that shined at the Breakout Challenge was Watts’ scoring ability. He is a quality shooter who can even connect on shots when he has a hand in his face. Watts’ pull-up jumper is smooth and he is able to score from inside the painted area.

Rodney Williams will not wow with freakish athleticism or anything of that sort, but what he does do is produce around the basket. A 6-foot-7 power forward who attends St. Christopher’s School (VA), Williams is tough down low and has a good, solid build. He can score the ball on the low blocks and even displayed the ability to put the ball in the cup by utilizing a nice hook shot.
