  • Final Evaluation Chimera Iloanya, of Tampa (FL) Plant HS, is a 6'0 150lb 2021 prospect from our Fall 2018 ATL camp. College coaches on camp staff identified Chimera as having division 1 potential. Chimera has elite level wingspan that makes the player a corner stone on the defensive end and can be even more effective with active hands/feet. Additionally, the prospect appears to have elite size for position when used properly is extremely advantageous on both sides of the ball. The talented passer, distributes the ball well seeing the floor and anticipating when and where teammates will be open creating easy buckets. In terms of ball handling, the prospect showed a great handle and is on the way to being a primary ball handler. Basketball IQ was one of the player's greatest strengths routinely making the right play at the right time. There was a great emphasis on making the right play, which will be a big advantage in recruiting and separating from others. A big part of IQ is shot selection. Chimera does an excellent job of shooting the basketball with rhythm and possesses high-level knowledge between good/bad shots. This advantage will continue to develop by watching how this is done at various college levels. Making the extra pass and taking only open in-rhythm shots proved to be a very reliable asset for the prospect. The prospect was able to consistently knock down shots during camp showing to be a reliable asset. Shooting will continue to develop with form shooting and made game speed repetitions. We recommend making at least 500 game speed shots a day off the screen(curl/fades), off the bounce, spot shooting, etc. The talent did a tremendous job of finishing around the rim through various moves. The prospect showed great ability with both hands and has the potential to finish on any defense. The talented player is an exceptional athlete proving to be an advantage on both ends of the floor having athleticism that is in the upper quartile of competitors. The prospect was one of the strongest player's at camp, and overwhelmed the competition because of it. The college game is an entirely different beast so continued strength development is crucial to prepare going against 23-24 year-olds who have been in a college strength program for 4+ years. Combined with the player's great frame, the player will be ahead of schedule in terms of being physically ready to play at the next level. The talent had an impressive motor (highly coveted skill by college coaches) that we believe will translate well at the next level. College coaches will be impressed watching the talented prospects motor and from what we saw, the player had a physical and mental toughness that coaches at the next level will love. The player showed excellence on the defensive side of the ball and exemplified individual and team defensive concepts that we highlighted at camp. Chimera has division 1 potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 4; 5. AAU Team: East Coast United.
