The first annual Providence College Elite Camp took place at alumni hall, located on the Providence College campus.
Coach Cooley and staff wasted no time jumping right into instructing the prospects on how a future friar would work while at practice. Providence staff demanded 100% energy & effort at all times, and brought the energy into the building to match the intensity of the prospects on hand.
Donovan Mitchell Jr 6’3″ 2015 G 2015 (The City): Was impressive from the start to finish, plays each play like its his last. Has the ability to make shots as well as the skill level to get to the rim at any given time. Mitchell was the one of several players that received scholarship offers from head coach Ed Cooley. Mitchell will transfer in Canterbury School CT, look for him to become a gem while at Canterbury.
Terry Larrier 6’6″ 2014 F (Scan): Wing player who can play above the rim at times, has a great feel for the game as he rebounds, defends and can handle the ball like a guard. With some added weight Larrier has all the tools to become an high major wing, needs to work on his perimeter jump-shot which will elevate his game to the next level.
Toriola Moses 6’9″ 2016 PF (Expressions): During drills Moses looked to be one of the better big men, each and every move was followed by a dunk. Has added a mid range jump shot to his array of moves, rebounded well and challenged shots. Needs to add some more muscle to his slim frame, plays aggressive despite his weight.
Quincy McKnight 2014 6’3″ SG (Scan): Scored effortless at times, was very aggressive getting to the rim and defended well. McKnight has a high ceiling where his potential could be limitless if he continues to work on his skill level.
Jeremy Miller 6’9″ PF (Mass Rivals): The question is still out will his game translate to the next level, the answer is yes. Miller shoots the ball like he is a guard, made some college three pointers today that were impressive. Would like to see him score with his back to the basket but that will come with time and confidence, Miller has became comfortable putting the ball on the floor and attempting to get to the rim.
