At the Phenom Prep Showcase, 2023 Shaedon Simpson from Combine Post Grad was certainly a player we were interested in seeing more about and getting an updated view of the unsigned senior.
After watching him at the event, we had this to say:
“Already holding a few offers, if a college program is needing a late senior, Simpson would be one I'd look at. He has really elevated and taken the next step in his game, continuing to add more layers to his game. Simpson has the size you like at 6'6, he can knock down shots from the outside with a ton of confidence, make plays off the dribble, and brings leadership to the court. Just has a smooth, confident feel he plays with.”
We spoke with Simpson shortly after to get an update on his recruitment.' Right now, he holds offers from Queens University and Hofstra, but he also mentioned that he has been in contact with Duquesne.
“They all mentioned how much they like my athletic ability, that I have really good size for a guard/wing, and how I play with confidence and keep the game simple.' They also talk a lot about how well I shoot and rebound the ball along with understanding defensive principles.”
