Javon Bess

6 Sep

Name: Javon “JB” Bess

Height: 6’4
Weight: 185

Position: Small Forward

School: Gahanna Lincoln
Hometown: Columbus, OH

AAU: King James Shooting Stars
Class: 2014

Evaluation: Point forward who is long, athletic, and constantly making plays with his high motor. “JB” can handle the ball against pressure in the full-court, attack the rim in the half-court, pass, score inside, and shoot the ball when he has time to set his feet. Truly versatile offensive player who is probably even better on the defensive end. Good feet, long arms, and anticipation skills allow him to lock down multiple spots.

Bottom Line: Very intriguing prospect who should continue to improve as his ball-skills do. Shows the ability to possibly become a PG down the road, where he would have great size.

Notes: Transferred to Gahanna Lincoln from Pickerington Central after his sophomore season.
