2023 6’3 LaQwon Cole (Bishop Montgomery): Really liked what I saw out Cole. He seemed to have his hand in a little bit of everything, whether it was pushing the break or helping run the offense, get his teammates involved and making smart decisions, not forcing much and making nice reads, but also being able to get to his spots to be a threat from outside. A nice piece that played hard and competed, making plays for himself and others.
2024 6’4 Jack Turner (Bosco): Turner is a player that is shifty and creative with the ball in his hands. Was able to make plays off the bounce, create for himself, and show some creativity with his game. Early on hit some tough shots. Showed his ability to step out and knock down shots, but also can score in a variety of ways. Finds ways to score for himself off the bounce and played with tremendous energy. Attacks quickly and has a nice burst to his game.
2023 6’1 Tyler Rolison (St. Bernard): Rolison was unbelievable in what he was able to do on the court. We haven’t seen too much of him, but we quickly realized that he is wired to score and can fill it up in a hurry. Rolison did everything on the floor; being a dynamic scorer, terrific playmaker in transition, showing his range with his perimeter shot, and how electric he can be in the open floor. Loved his ability to find his teammates and make terrific passes, also a very shifty ball handler. Had a terrific first half on Day 1.
2025 6’8 Chris Nwuli (Bishop Gorman): It didn’t take long to see how special this young man is and is going to be. At his size, he is so intriguing with his skill set, his ability to put on the deck and create, his terrific bounce and timing, and just how explosive he can be around the basket. Also showed a nice touch around the paint with his back to the basket at times. Not too many prospects at his size with the ability to secure the rebound and push in transition, as well as making his presence felt on both sides of the court. He is going to continue to be a rising star in the class.
2025 Nick Jefferson (Bishop Gorman): A young guard to watch out for. He showed his ability to be a point guard on the court, attacking in transition, and making plays for his teammates. Sees the floor well, is able to get paint touches, and has some sneaky bounce to his game. Made several plays out in the open floor either for himself or setting up his teammates.
2023 6’11 Devin Williams (Centennial): Already committed to UCLA, Williams is one that the Bruins should be excited about. Fluid, long, skilled prospect with great size, displays confidence in his perimeter shot from three, can make his presence felt on both ends, finishes well, fluid and runs the floor well, and can alter shots and defend outside as well. Upside still with his game.
2023 Jared McCain (Centennial): Getting a chance to watch the Duke commit, one can see why McCain is one of the top players in his class. A smooth operator on the floor, smooth pull-up game from all levels but strong with his perimeter shot, whether mid-range or three. Really liked how he operated and controlled the game, seeing the floor, made plays in a variety of ways, and understands how to fill it up. Strong body frame as well.
2025 6’6 Tounde Yessoufou (St. Joseph): If you haven’t heard his name yet, you will and should quickly. He was absolutely off the charts and couldn’t be denied, as he finished with 42 points to lead his team. Yessoufou scored how he wanted, when he wanted, and really shot the ball extremely well from outside. He uses his 6’6 frame to his advantage, and can bully and finish through defenders, but did an excellent job in finding ways to create space and his shot. Surprises you with his outside game and his confidence in his perimeter game.
2023 Zack Davidson (Mater Dei): Davidson, already committed to Montana, can be a tough matchup on the court with his ability to hurt opponents inside and out. Comfortable on so many levels, the stretch forward is skilled, took advantage of the mismatch, can stretch and operate from the perimeter, or back down smaller opponents in the post with nice touch and speed.
2023 Kevin Patton (Rancho Christian): Patton is one that we have seen on multiple occasions and he continues to attract our eyes his way. Hard not to when you are talking about a 6’8 wing prospect that consistently shows off his athleticism, his length, his ability to knock down tough shots and step outside but also be effective inside the arc. Patton made some strong defensive plays as well, really using his athleticism to his advantage.
