Although his #1 ranked Memphis East squad fell a little short in the 45th Annual City of Palms championship game to a very good University School (FL), James Wiseman proved he has all the tools to be a future lottery pick in the NBA Draft. Highly regarded as the #1 2019 prospect in the country, James size and athleticism alone makes him a tough cover for anyone trying to defend him. During the event he knocked down his silky smooth left-handed jumpshot from mid-range as well as beyond the arc. Strong around the rim and blessed with natural athleticism, along with that 7’0 length and skillset, he has many of the nation’s top programs such as Kentucky, Kansas, Arizona, UNC, and Florida trying their best to get him on campus. If James Wiseman stays hungry and humble and under the tutelage of NBA great Penny Hardaway, we will be hearing his name early in the NBA Draft.
