Once again, Sharife Cooper put up huge numbers at an EYBL session, and luckily for AOT's Peach Jam chances, his production turned into wins in Indianapolis. Cooper averaged a session-high 9.5 assists per game, consistently slashing through the defense with his unique playing style. Cooper was an assist away from three double-doubles with assists, and his 2-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio is evidence that he is playing smart basketball. Cooper received a lift from the supporting cast as juniors Dylan Cardwell (6-foot-10) and Devan Cambridge (6-foot-6) both earned Indianapolis All-Breakout honors.

Jalen Johnson - Phenom University (WI)

Year: 2020
Height: 6'9
Rank: 247 No. 2

Jalen Johnson used Phenom's four games in Indianapolis to showcase why he is widely considered the most versatile player in the 2020 class. Johnson's floor vision is on another for someone his size and strength, and the 6-foot-9 point-forward was two assists per game away from averaging a triple-double for the session. He doesn't need to score the ball to be effective, and he knows how to properly utilize his supporting cast in Pat Baldwin (Indy Offensive POTS), Reece Beekman (Indy All-Breakout Team) and Jaemyn Brakefield (All-Indy Honorable Mention).

Cam Thomas - Boo Williams (VA)

Year: 2020
Height: 6'3
Rank: 247 Composite No. 23
Session Record: 3-1

EYBL Indy Averages:

28.3 PPG, 47.40 FG% (36-76), 89.40 FT% (34-38), 31.80 3PT% (7-22)

Another session, another impressive scoring output from Cam Thomas. Boo Williams' veteran junior averaged over 28 points per game for the session, highlighted by a  34-point, 8-rebounds, 4-assist, 0-turnover performance in a win over local rival Team Durant. Thomas' scoring ability is as elite as it gets in the 2020 class, and if he continues to contribute in different areas of the stat sheet, his value will grow. Boo Williams features four 5-star recruits and Thomas is the clear-cut leader, and Boo gets all of that production with only one turnover per contest. If he continues to produce this efficiently, they will be on the short-list for Peach Jam favorites in July.
