  • Final Evaluation McKenna Snively, of Chapel Hill (NC) Northwood HS, is a 5'6 110lb 2022 prospect from our Fall 2018 GBORO camp. College coaches on camp staff identified McKenna as having college potential. McKenna has a good wingspan, which can be more effective with active hands/feet. Additionally, the prospect appears to have solid size for position and should use their size to be a pesky defender. 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 strong handle and has the potential to be a primary ball handler with daily work. The prospect displayed a good basketball IQ during camp that should continue to improve. Through continued emphasis on making the right play through watching/learning the game, it can be a big advantage in recruiting and separating from others. A big part of IQ is shot selection. McKenna 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 was a capable finisher around the rim. With continued work finishing through traffic with either hand, through contact, and developing more finishing moves, the player will continue to be an improving threat around the basket. The talented player has good athletic ability for size and age. ScoutsFocus would like to see continued development in speed/agility and vertical development. Jump rope drills are great full body conditioning drill we highly recommend if not ready for a rigorous weight-training program. The prospect showed a solid level of strength. We would like to see continued strength development whether it is via traditional strength training means or body weight military type development(pushups/pull-ups). Combined with the player's decent frame, we expect the player to really develop with continued work in the weight room. The talent has a good motor (highly coveted skill by college coaches) and we would like to see them continue to make every possession an major priority and from what we saw, the player showed physical and mental toughness throughout camp. The player showed reliability on the defensive side of the ball and should continue to focus on individual and team defensive concepts emphasized at camp. McKenna has college potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 2. AAU Team: Team Carolina.
