Playing among the best of the best in the country, Bradley Beal Elite standout Layden Blocker set himself apart this week at USA Basketball’s Junior National Team Mini Camp in Colorado Springs.
The Class of 2023 stud, who is committed to The University of Arkansas, was among three players that Adam Finkelstein of 247Sports believes helped themselves the most.
“Blocker and [Coen] Carr emerged right away on Saturday, not just because they were probably the most explosive overall athletes in the field, but because they also both set the tone with how hard they were willing to play. Blocker maintained his dominance on Sunday. The Arkansas commit was making plays defensively, creating pace in the open floor, and finishing hard above the rim with both hands. He made a couple nice passes when in attack mode as well, getting the defense to collapse before spraying out to shooters. The fact that he is young for his grade, and doesn’t turn 18 until next summer, only adds to the intrigue.”
