“The Platform” held it’s final session in Virginia Beach last weekend, featuring some of the top AAU programs on the east coast. The event had teams ranging from sixth to eighth grade, and was a great preview to the AAU season and what teams will look like this spring.
There were so many standouts ranging from Virginia to Georgia and everywhere in between. There are still two more sessions, with one happening at U-Turn in Richmond on March 5 and 6, and one at the Virginia Beach Sportscenter April 15 and 16.
Here’s a look at part four of the standouts, looking at some of the top kids in “The 6”.
Chacho Womack | RDC Lakers 12U
Womack was named MVP of “The 6” after leading the RDC Lakers to the championship and scoring over 30 points in all three of their games, including 32 points in the championship game over New World. While he isn’t the biggest guy Womack is tough as they come both in his intensity and hustle as well as in his ability to score the basketball. He shoots it very well from deep with effortless range for his age, he can put it on the deck and is shifty and he has a great midrange game as well.
Trent Moody | RDC Lakers 12U
While Womack was the leading scorer this session, Moody was fantastic as well and was one of the top players in “The 6” throughout all of the sessions. He’s a strong forward with good size for his age, and his versatility makes him very intriguing moving forward. He can play almost every position on the floor, he can effortlessly score from all three levels and he is a walking mismatch on both ends of the floor.
Kaleb Clark | New World 12U
Clark was one of the best players in “The 6” throughout the three sessions, and he led New World to the championship and had a good game in it as well. He’s much bigger than most of the kids his age, but he’s not only big he has a good skillset and versatility as he brought the ball up the floor, played in the post and showed good touch out to the elbows as well. He already looks like he’ll be very good moving forward if he continues to develop.
Olatian Olorunghbohunmi | New World 12U
Olorunghbohunmi was the heart and sole of this New World group, as he plays with a great motor and produces in a lot of different ways for his team. He is strong and athletic and gets after it on both ends, he gets to the rim consistently and he can finish through contact and he rebounds very well on both ends of the floor.
Damien Robinson | Ballo Timberwolves 13/12U
Robinson played for both the 6th and 7th grade Ball Timberwolves, and he played well for both teams and has a poise and talent well beyond his years already. The son of Landstown High School coach Dwight Robinson, he has a mix of talent, competitiveness and IQ that is well beyond his years as a point guard. He can knock down shots consistently, he can make plays for others off the bounce and he brings it on both ends of the floor.
