The Nike EYBL and other major grassroots basketball leagues were canceled this summer by coronavirus. That has not stopped other basketball events from taking place in states with fewer COVID-19 restrictions.
Over the weekend in Atlanta, The Tipoff Classic hosted Kentucky target Brandon Huntley-Hatfield. A 6-foot-8 power forward in the class of 2022, 247 Sports ranks the IMG Academy star as the No. 5 player in America. Recruited by Joel Justus, Huntley-Hatfield and Skyy Clark are the only players in the recruiting class with a UK scholarship offer.
In one game during the showcase, Huntley-Hatfield posted a casual 17 points, six rebounds and two blocks. For a big guy, Huntley-Hatfield has a solid midrange game and is comfortable handling the ball in transition. See some of his best stuff from the weekend in this highlight reel from Courtside Films.
