(Note - This is not an exclusive list)
Lamontay Daughtery – 2020 – F – All in Athletics Williams
A talented young forward who passes the look test and has already displayed solid feel and potential early this spring. He pairs in the frontcourt with talented Tyrelle Hunt (see below) to form a strong duo that should generate a lot of attention moving forward. Just scratching the surface, Daughtery is one to get familiar with quickly.
William Dunn – 2020 – F – Grand Rapids Storm
A talented young big with size, length, and instincts, Dunn is just getting started and as the circuit goes he’s one to watch closely as he has lots of physical tools to like in a young big.
Delaware Hale – 2020 – F – Wisconsin Swing Litscher
A raw intriguing young forward with size, length, and feel. Hale has a nice developing skill package and a lot of physical tools to work with. Look for him to quietly evolve as a prospect and he looks like one of the bright young prospects on the rise in the state of Wisconsin.
Steven Henderson – 2020 – G/F – Caron Butler Elite
An athletic slashing wing with versatility and potential, Henderson can finish in transition and half court sets off the attack. He has nice length, solid instincts, and quality athleticism. A solid young wing to keep tabs on moving forward.
Tyrelle Hunt – 2020 – F – All in Athletics Williams
A solid athletic young forward with potential, Hunt is impressive at times as he can fill the box score and make things happen on both ends. Just scratching the surface, Hunt is part of a very strong All in Athletics Williams 15U team that should challenge for championship hardware at season’s end.
Isaac Lindsey – 2020 – SG – Wisconsin Swing
One of the top shooters in the Midwest, few can heat up and stay as hot as Lindsey through an entire game. It’s often that Lindsey will rack up four or more triples in a ball game and make it look easy. At 6-foot-2, Lindsey broke out last spring/summer and carried that momentum into his freshman season. Despite taking a high number of 3-pointers, Lindsey always seems to be efficient from beyond the arc, shooting his team into games, rather than taking them out.
Tate Machacek – 2020 – F – 43 Hoops
A good athlete that already has the ability to play near or above the rim, Machacek has some intriguing physical tools. His athleticism allows him to finish against contact and clean up the boards at a high rate. A consistent top performer coming up through the GNBA ranks, was often a double-double machine.
Mason Miller – 2020 – F – Minnesota Comets Elite
A strong athletic forward with a 6’7’ frame and plus wingspan. Miller can finish around the basket and in transition and he looks and feels the part of a solid Division 1 prospect as he evolves and develop over the next few years.
Jayshawn Moore – 2020 – F – REACH Legends
A player we’re eager to get another look at Moore is very intriguing for his class. At 6-foot-5, Moore has plus length and a ton of upside. His instincts around the rim stand out and Moore is very active on the glass on both ends of the floor. Moore has flashed some mid-range and slashing ability from the high post. This is one to keep track of as Moore’s best days are down the road.
Abe Scruggs IV – 2020 – G – Wisconsin Shooters
A player who lets the game come to him and plays within himself, Scruggs has a nice feel for the floor. A solid ball handler with speed and determination to generate easy looks, Scruggs has some nice ability to create and finish around the rim. A good athlete, Scruggs can get out on the break and make things happen in transition. Scruggs is also a willing defender that uses his athletic ability and toughness to lock up on the perimeter.
