Top prospects from UAA session III: Felton, Duval, Reid

Jalek Felton has sometimes been a bit casual with his effort. This spring his motor has been ramped up and he’s showed lots of ability as an off the dribble scorer.

It’s too early to guess how good Bradley might be when he arrives in Chapel Hill, but he won’t have to be a dominant force right away. There’s enough talent returning that growing pains can be weathered. (Today's U)
