Anytime you bring together hundreds of teams from around the region to compete in front of scholarship carrying college coaches, Unsigned Seniors are sure to step up to the plate. Phenom’s Grassroots Tip Off Live is no different.
At this time of year, colleges are looking to finish up their current classes, here is a listing of unsigned seniors that highest level D2s and D1s need to watch.
6’4” Jeremiah Gannoway
YSAL Elite (NC)
Gannoway is a high-level athlete, who has supreme length and the ability to rise up quickly. He is comfortable on the ball, from the wing and he has upside as a lock down type defender. He has great defensive instincts and can be electric in the open court. He is still a little raw, but the upside is clear as one of those guys who goes off to college and by his second year, people are wondering where in the world this one came from. D2s need to be sitting on him and D1s need to put eyes on him.
6’5” Corey Rutherford
High Point Havoc (NC)
Mr Hand Down, Man Down. Rutherford is a shooter deluxe. The 6’5” shooting guard shot 45% from the 3-point line this season for state champion Winston Salem prep. Rutherford has great size for his position and he has a translatable skill that he does at a high level. He carries a high level D2 offer with Winston Salem State, schools need to watch him closely.
6’8” Justin Tene
Team Vision NC
Tene has a great frame, he is very strong with broad shoulders and has great length. What is most impressive about him is that he has unbelievable hands and great touch, with both hands. Tene is a strong 2-handed rebounder, he sets great screens and he scores well on the block. No idea why he has no offers, at any level yet. He is a D1 level talent.
6’8” Hunter Seymour
EA Preps Gold (NC)
Seymour is a very intriguing and completely unknown Division 1 prospect. The high academic forward carries an 1150 test score as well. Seymour has long arms and very springy legs. He can shoot the ball from three, off the catch and he is able to rip through and get to the rim. He is a strong rebounder and will only continue to get better. A sure fire D1 type of guy, it could be this weekend that numerous offers start coming his way.
