Next up: Daman “Mr. Hibachi” Tate (Class of 2019)

Daman Tate is poised to break out this upcoming AAU season as projected as one of the top guards in the country. Tate has been relatively flying under the radar but potentially playing on the Nike EYBL circuit could boost his stock. The 6’2 eighth grader has a deadly outside shot, finishes very well in transition, and is consistently playing above the rim. Tate is a natural playmaker with all of the tools of a high major prospect. We look forward to following him during the spring/summer.
