One of the summer’s top NCAA basketball recruiting events opens in earnest on Thursday as the 2014 Nike Peach Jam gets fully underway from South Carolina. The championship of the Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) is an AAU tournament that features most of the highest-rated recruits in the country for the class of 2015 as they prepare for their final high school seasons.
One of the league’s most impressive stars so far has been Cheick Diallo of Team Scan Cardinals. The athletic center has controlled the paint on both ends, but even he still has room to improve as the league heads into its postseason tourney.
Read on to find out where Diallo has been coming up short, along with one area in which the rest of the Scout.com 5-star recruits playing this weekend can enhance their performances for the championships. All stats are through the end of regular-season EYBL play.
