2023 Shaedon Simpson (Combine): 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.
2023 Abrahm Driver (Bull City): Driver has really changed his game and is producing in a big way this season for Bull City. He continued that at the Prep Showcase, and eventually walked away with an offer from the event. Driver is a mobile, nimble forward at 6’7, one who moves extremely well without the ball and runs the floor. Driver possesses great touch around the basket and is confident in his ability to step out at times. The senior filled it up consistently throughout the event to lead his team.
2023 Jajuan Nicholls (NC GBB): Nicholls should have college coaches all over him, and this isn’t the first time we have said this. We have noticed a huge difference in his game over the last year, as he has gotten bigger, stronger, and way more assertive on both ends of the court. He can anchor and protect the rim defensively, but also be a physical presence offensively in the paint and step out with his mid-range. If I’m a school, I’m looking his way.
2023 Moses Tufts (Wayne Prep): It was good to see the senior again, after not having a chance to watch him as of late. But the sturdy guard led the charge for Wayne Prep throughout the event, showing a nice ability to score from inside and out, use his frame to be physical against opponents and on the boards, and play at a nice pace. Can be a double-double type guard for his team, and the clear leader on the court for Wayne Prep.
2023 Kendrell Brooks (Bull City PG): Brooks had a very solid showing throughout the event, as he was able to step up and help lead his team throughout the event. Brooks did a nice job in being able to create his shot, but also finish at the rim and out in transition.
2023 Chris Greene (Greater Destiny Prep): Greene was a new name for us at the event, but he walked away as one that I would look and see what he could be. One thing you will always get from the senior is energy and motor, as he uses his length extremely well, was relentless on the boards and creating second-chance opportunities, and altered shots as well. A raw prospect in some areas but can definitely see the potential.
