  • Final Evaluation Chyna Cornwell, of Conover (NC) Newton-Conover HS, is a 6'2 173lb 2020 prospect from our Fall 2018 GBORO camp. College coaches on camp staff identified Chyna as having division 1 potential. Chyna 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 great positional size when used properly remains very advantageous on both sides of the ball. The player does a pretty good job of distributing the basketball. With continued emphasis of seeing the whole floor at all times, that skill will become a valuable asset. In terms of ball handling, the prospect showed a great handle and is on the way to being a primary ball handler. The prospect's Basketball IQ definitely stood out at camp and proved to be really good. Through continued emphasis on making the right play through watching/learning the game, it can be a big advantage in recruiting. A big part of IQ is shot selection. Chyna does a great job of understanding when there is enough time and space to shoot the ball and will continue to develop this knowledge 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 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 impressed finishing around the rim through contact and in traffic. With continued work finishing through traffic with either hand, adding even more finishing moves, the player will continue to be a grave threat around the basket. 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 excellent frame the player has the potential to have a definite physical advantage at the next level amongst their fellow incoming freshman. The talent showed a very good motor (highly coveted skill by college coaches) that remained mostly active on possessions 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. Chyna has division 1 potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 4. AAU Team: Carolina Quest.
