Tyler Ennis was snubbed for the McDonald’s All American game, but was excited to have the chance to shine this weekend at the Jordan Brand Classic.
“Tyler and Andrew both see the floor really well,” said his St. Benedict’s Prep head coach Mark Taylor. “Not only are they getting the ball right there, they’re getting the ball to players in a position where they’re going to be OK. The timing is so good the big man is in a great position to finish once they catch the ball.”
Ennis really shined at the National High School Invitational last week and even hit a go-ahead three pointer with 10 seconds left, but unfortunately St. Benedict’s lost on a buzzer beating three pointer. Ennis will shine next year though; there is no doubt about that and there are incredibly bright things in his future. Taylor also thougt that Tar Heel commit Kennedy Meeks showed himself off as well over the week of practices.
“I thought Meeks passed the ball well today,” Taylor said. “Nice soft hands and for his size, you wouldn’t expect him to see the floor as well as he does. He also catches everything.”
Meeks and Ennis will not play on the same team next year, but they will both be in the ACC so it should be fun to watch their battles. Who is the better passer? Who knows, but we will find out soon.
