Scout.com write up about the Top Players at the NW Summer Showcase features Tristan Etienne & Jadon Cohee. Nice work fellas!
F Tristan Etienne, WJ Mouat, Abbostford, BC (committed to UW): Having seen Etienne once before I didn’t expect much of a change in what I saw. This time around, Etienne was a bigger shot-blocking presence on the defensive end. He probably had 12 blocks or so throughout the day, if not more, and if he didn’t block a shot, he definitely altered it. Seeing him again also allowed me to get a better feel for his size. He looks to be a solid 6-foot-9, and with his long arms he seems even bigger. Etienne also surprised many on Friday when displaying his handles. He drove down the lane multiple times and consistently used his go-to spin move. Although he wasn’t finishing very well, he was exceptional when finishing the first time I saw him. With college coaching, he will be a very solid player down the road. I see him as a definite four-year player in Lorenzo Romar’s system.
G Jadon Cohee, Walnut Grove HS, Langley BC The surprise of the day was definitely Jadon Cohee. He impressed me in so many different aspects of the game and his body is perfect for the position he plays. He stands at about 6-foot-3 or 6-foot-4 and is very fast and quick. He drove right by some of the best defenders in the tournament and drew fouls like they were nothing. He attacks the rim and is so strong he finished most of the time. He was one of the hardest players to defend not only because of his quickness, but also because of his shooting ability. He can knock down the three on a consistent basis and can find open teammates on the break easily. Cohee works very well with Tristan Etienne off of the pick and roll and that is why Drive Basketball is one of the best teams in the tournament. Cohee has mid-major offers right now from Seattle U and Portland, but is getting looks from Pac-12 schools such as Washington State, Utah and California. I expect Cohee to pick up multiple offers after the tournament is over. Recently, Steve Nash picked Cohee out of a large group of players to work with on-on-one and they now talk on a daily basis. The teachings from Nash are invaluable to Cohee. This is definitely a name to watch in the future.
