2012 LeBron James Skills Academy: Top College Prospects

NBADraft.net on the LeBron James Skills Academy.

5. Trey Burke 6’0/185 6’5 (Columbus, OH) Michigan — Stood out on the first two days with his all around hustle and play. May have been the top overall PG prospect in camp. Though undersized, his 6’5 wingspan and athleticism allows him to overcome his size deficiency. Burke plays with a lot of intensity and heart. He displayed a solid jumpshot with good range. He’s put on some weight and appears primed for a big sophomore season. Appears equally comfortable in the half court as in transition. Burke was close to keeping his name in the NBA draft and there was some thought that he could actually sneak into the late first round. He will have a good shot of doing that by building on a sensational freshman season.

Tim Hardaway Jr 6’6/193 6’7 (Miami, FL) Michigan — Hardaway didn’t shoot the ball particularly well but shows a professional approach and solid athleticism. His outside shot shows good lift and excellent form. Hardaway’s biggest Achilles is plain to see as he really struggles to get by defenders off the dribble as he’s severely lacking an explosive first step. He’ll need to continue honing his outside shot to make it as a dead eye spot up shooter.
