Mike Decourcy of the Sporting News was there, and when he watched the 2015 seniors play he wasn't impressed. Over on the Sporting News website Decourcy gives us his Peach Jam assessment. He wrote about UK recruit Stephen Zimmerman and although it wasn't to bad of an assessment he did explain some weaknesses of Zimmerman's game.
Decourcy's assessment on Zimmerman: A 7-0 center from Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, Zimmerman was discussed a year ago as possibly being the best player in the 2015 class. It’s easy to see why. He moves beautifully for a player his size. He catches everything thrown at him. Those are excellent building blocks for a great low-post player.
Unfortunately, that’s where it stops right now.
When he catches the ball now, he’s immediately looking to pass. That’s because it’s the area that’s most successful for him. If he tries to make a scoring move, chances are defensive pressure will cause it to fall short. He produced only one double-figure scoring game out of five at the Peach Jam. He shot 41 percent from the field. (Ed. note: He did have some pretty good dunks, though).
Decourcy talks about other recruits like Isah Briscoe, Dedric Lawson, KeVaughn Allen, and a whole section titles "The 2015 Class Stinks". To read the full article just put your cursor here and tab.
