Excelling with ball in his hands, Allen quickly identifies his advantage, pulling up for three, slashing to the basket and finishing plays with either hand, or stopping and popping the 1-2 dribble pull-up.

Williamson displayed the best mid-range game of all campers, frequently pulling up from 14-16 feet after 1-2 dribbles, strong dribbles.  He is a powerful and willing defender with quick hands.    His experience as a professional player overseas (Luxembourg) shined through in situational drills as he showed solid decision-making and command of the pick and roll.

A proven winner and prolific scorer, Williamson is a 2-time EIL MVP, 3-time EIL Champion, and still holds the career points record at Pinegree (2096 total points scored). Many iBall Pro Combine Scouts and Coaches were complimentary of Williamson’s strong leadership and positive outlook, one coach stated that he is ‘driven, very coachable with tons of upside.’

(8.5 per game).   In addition, Clark wreaked havoc in the passing lanes with very active hands and ranked #1 (tie) in Steals Per Game.

Clark’s length and versatility, on the offensive and defensive ends of the court, allow him to occupy many positions on the floor.  He has superior ball handling ability for a player his size and when making swift moves after quick decisions, he attacks the basket and finishes very well.  Clark is also adept at clearing defensive rebounds to start the fast break.   But it is his activity on the glass, three-point shooting, and ability to quickly identify mismatches for attacking bigger and slower defenders that will set him apart.  A proven winner, Clark claimed 2 SWAC Championships at Southern University (NCAA D1).

JOE GRAESSLE  (6’3″ 205 lb, PG, SG, iBall United)

Joe Graessle

Excellent shooting ability and superior foot speed.  Joe Graessle, the nation’s NCAA Division II Career Points Leader (2009-14) did not disappoint at the 2014 iBall Pro Combine.  Graessle shot the ball extremely well in both games and situational drills ranking #1 (tie) in 3 pointers made per game (3) and averaging 16.0 points (tie-#2), and 16.5 valoration (tie-#3).  Joe boasts range up to 26 foot with a skill set to create shooting opportunities in a variety of ways– off the dribble, running off and reading screens to catch and shoot, set shots with a quick release and solid mechanics, and reading the shooting advantages out off of pick and roll situations.

But Graessle’s talents do not stop at his scoring ability.  According to stats by MAXOUT, Joe has superior lateral movement (#2-tie) and his multi-directional movement score ranked #3 (tie) overall.  Joe also has the capacity to create scoring opportunities for other players which is supported by a 2.0 assists per game. ‘Extremely coachable and ready to learn’ were some of the many positive comments reported by scouts and coaches.

Rounding out his stats, Mauge ranked 2nd in defensive rebounds per game (5.5) and 4th in total rebounds per game (7.5 rebounds).   Mauge still holds the record for blocked shots in an NCAA D2 Tournament game (10) and has a very high upside once strength and playing experience (Mauge began playing basketball late as a teenager) catch up with his solid character and willingness to get better.
