6’8” Prosper Obidiebube
Aspire Academy (KY)
Obidiebube walks onto the court, looking the part. He has long arms, broad shoulders and an athletic frame. He runs the floor very well and he can shoot the ball with 3-point range off the catch. He finishes the ball high above the rim and carries a 3.8 GPA. Obidiebube recently took an official visit to Holy Cross, his only offer. Perplexing as it may be, he certainly should see that list grow as this year continues to play out.
6’4” Seth Bennett
Charlotte Christian (NC)
Bennett has a great frame to go with a smooth feel to his game. He can shoot the ball from deep range, with a quick trigger. He has an effortless stroke with great rotation and a high release. Bennett is a solid athlete, with good length. He fills the passing lanes hard. It will be interesting to see how his senior season goes, he looks to be a main focal point of team that is very unselfish and moves the ball quickly and crisply.
6’2” Mike Green
Christian Academy of MB (SC)
Green is a known commodity, which makes his current state of recruitment even more perplexing. He is coming off a season which saw him average 21 points, 53% FG, 50% 3P (92-183). As if that isn’t enough he also added 5.6 assists and 4.9 rebounds per game. This weekend, he didn’t slow down as he show incredible percentages while averaging 25 points per game. Green is able to both create his shot off the bounce or catch and shoot. He sees the floor at a very high level and he has great awareness on both ends. As a 5 year varsity starter, he is the focal point of the defense, in almost every game he plays, he still goes out and produces at ridiculous clips. Along the way USC-Upstate and Charlotte have offered.
6’8” Vadim Clanet
DME Academy (FL)
Clanet is a starter for this loaded DME Academy team and he is a steading force who does the dirty work on the floor. A new age type of big who rebounds his area, defends with toughness, sets great screens and stretches the floor out beyond the arc. He was very comfortable in pick and pop situations and provided a sense of toughness for his guys. A little bit surprised at his lack of recruitment, but that should certainly pick up soon.
6’11” Julian Steinfield
Grace Christian (NC)
There is a lack of bigs across the board, which makes the 6’11” Steinfield attractive off the jump. When you add in his fluid athleticism to go along with his natural shot block timing and 3-point range your eyes open up. He is a slender player, from Germany, who is in his second year in the United States. He currently has no offers (surprising), but that should change as is gets later in the game. All that good stuff said, Steinfield is also a 4.0 student.
6’7” Nick Evtimov
Greensboro Day (NC)
Evtimov was simply unstoppable this weekend. In fact, he has been on a mission these past couple of weekends as he was a standout at Session 1 of Phenom’s High School Jamboree. Evtimov is in incredible shape right now. His skill level is high and his feet are light. He also has been able to maintain that toughness and edge he plays with. Evtimov had multiple drop step, two handed dunks in this one. He is able to take you off the bounce or post you up on the block. Evtimov says Campbell and Colgate are recruiting him the hardest right now. He will quickly become one of the hottest names in this region.
