Kids that enter the 17U EYBL program ARE ALREADY college-bound players... They are already developed... We want to see the players that he has developed from grassroots... Ask Williams and Thompson about being D1 prospects and ending up JUCO bound from the EYBL circuitI have stood next to McKenzie many times and she is definitely taller than 5'8. With her athleticism that's irrelevant anyway. The kid's vertical is incredible. She is, by far, the most athletic player in Minnesota. Nobody else is even close. The main issue is skill development, overall understanding of the game and developing the ability to play within a system and share the basketball. The coaching at Park Center is less-than-ideal (way, way less) and Adalia is basically freelancing her way through high school. If there is an AAU season (let's hope so!) she will learn to play the game the right way from Gerard Coury at North Tartan, who has a long track record of sending players to college well-prepared.
