2019 John Lucas Elite Invitational Day 1

The 1st day of the 2019 John Lucas Elite Invitational was like Thanksgiving dinner at your “Big Mama’s” house. It was so many good kids to watch I didn’t where to start! I didn’t watch any of the drills, I got there right before the games started. There was plenty of talent was on display, here are some of the kids that caught my eye, look forward to Day 2.



#7 6’2 Amare Abrams (PA Memorial HS, 2022)– Was locked and loaded yesterday. Really held it down for the land of the trill! Scored at will, was engaged defensively, and played harder than I’ve ever seen him play.



#20 6’7 Micah Peavy (Duncanville HS, 2020)– Almost made it look too easy yesterday. Size, skill, and athleticism personified, the “burger game” hopeful didn’t disappoint. Had a good 1st day of camp.


#25 6’7 Terrance Arceneaux (Beaumont United HS, 2022)– When he plays hard, he looks like one of the better prospects in his class. Was all over the rim yesterday, several highlight tip dunks, & big time rebounds.


#78 6’6 Ronald Holland (Duncanville HS, 2023)– To the victor goes the spoils. And Duncanville fans will be spoiled when they see this long, super motor, athletic freshman. Never stops competing, grabs offensive boards, runs the court, never backed down from the smoke. In the conversation of the top player in the class in Texas.



#16 5’11 Jordan Williams (Kinkaid School, 2022)– Was sensational in transition and getting to the basket. When he gets going downhill, it’s virtually impossible to stop him with his size, strength and athleticism.



#84 6’2 Jayden Lawton (Naaman Forest HS, 2022)– Athletic, strong framed guard who scored the ball well, and had a couple of highlight dunks on the break. Impressed me with his understanding of how to score and using his body to his advantage on both ends of the floor.


#91 5’11 Jaland Lowe (Kinkaid School, 2023)– Had a sequence yesterday, where he scored or assisted on 5 straight of his team’s buckets. Really high IQ, and has a better handle than I thought. Also showed he can knock down the 3 ball, he looked good running the point. Super skilled.


#116 Bryce Griggs (Hightower HS, 2022)– Was the same old BG, used his elite handle, and strong body to finish through contact to score, and find open teammates for easy baskets, he’s an offensive weapon. Always has the target on his back, and always performs.


#126 6’9 Prince Mosengo (Victory Rock Prep, 2022)– Athlete SUPREME, it looked like somebody dropped him from the sky on some of his dunks. Really good defensively, guarded multiple guys.



#133 6’0 Elijah Lawrence (Bellaire HS, 2021)– He was unbelievable yesterday, played like the best PG in his class in the state! Cooked his competition yesterday. With John Lucas himself watching for seven possessions, he had 5 straight assists, and then proceeded to knock down 2 jumpers in a row after that. Out played every match up he had yesterday.



#50 6’10 Favour Aire (Bishop McNamara HS, 2022)– He didn’t do the rims any “favour” at Mi3 Center the way he abused them with all the monstrous dunks! One of the huge 2022 bigs that dominated camp yesterday. has some really good back to the basket moves, very aggressive defensively. Loved his energy.



#189 6’6 Tre White (Cornerstone Christian School, 2022)– A lot bigger than I thought. Another kid who made it look too easy. Multidimensional, got to the rim, rebounded the ball well, hit shots. I love his athleticism, and his competitiveness, easily one of the better kids at camp.
