Quade Green Turning Corner as True Point Guard


Nobody can deny that Quade Green is a High Major, special talent who is capable of scoring the ball in bunches. However, because Quade has had such a knack for scoring the basketball for Philadelphia power, Neumann Gorretti, at times in past years Quade’s ability to lead his team and make everyone around him better has come into question by some.

After seeing him play with his high school team numerous times this year, and watching him play with the ultra talented 17U EYBL PSA Cardinals this past weekend, it is obvious that Quade is ready to shine as one of the best TRUE point guards in the country.
Throughout the weekend, two lopsided Cardinals wins, Quade had double digit assists in each game and failed to record a single turnover. However, his ability to LEAD a group of High Major players, who he has only played with for a few weeks, may have been the most impressive thing about his performance.

Constantly talking and communicating, while putting his teammates in the best possible situation to succeed, Quade was showing many of the point guard qualities of a young Tyler Ulis. As his perception as a point guard continues to change as people watch him play, one thing that will never change is the fact that Quade is a FLAT OUT winner.

Future All American, littered with High Major Prospects: By Elite Director Bryan Weber




Hoop Group’s Future All American Camp has become the nation’s premier basketball camp for grades 6-10, and this year was no different. We attracted some of the highest rated players from across the country, and they certainly did not disappoint. I would like to highlight some of the players who had excellent performances and should be on the radar’s of every High Major school in the country.

2018 Silvio De Sousa 6’8 PF MVP — Highlighted by a number 6 and a number 1 play on Sportscenter Top 10, Silvio is an absolute monster. He has a grown man body right now, and he uses it at every possible chance. I have never in person, seen a rising sophomore who is more impressive physically on a basketball court than this young man. Standing at 6’8 De Sousa has the size to dominate on the block, but he also shows signs of transitioning to a Lebron type 1-5 man, who can get the ball off the rim and take it the length of the floor. Throughout the entire week he lived up to ESPN’s number 2 ranking and if not for Marvin Bagley (one of the best prospects in the last 20 years), Silvio could easily be the top player in this class. However, the most impressive part of Silvio’s game is his work ethic and drive to be great. Whether it was dominating the station work, or running sprints by himself outside to get warmed up, he showed he has a drive to be great that will serve him for years to come.

2019 Maxwell Lorca 6’9 PF MOP– A long skilled power forward headed to Northfield Mount Hermon, Maxwell has a chance to be very special. He has the ability that very few players his age and size have, and that is running the floor. In the top 20 all star game at camp Max and Sean Good (class of 2018) got dunk after dunk by running the floor on every play. He is definitely a shot maker, however he needs to continue to work on getting his shot off much quicker, and only a Freshman, he will have plenty of time to do this. Look for Max to be another PSA Cardinal big man to end up at a High Level School (Chris Mccullough, Cheick Diallo, Kasoum Yakwe, Etc). Off the court it should be noted that he is a tremendous kid who is willing to get better and seems very receptive to criticism, which should lead to a very very bright future.


2018 Jalen Smith 6’8 PF — In a camp full of High Major Prospects, Jalen “Sticks’ Smith holds my vote for greatest upside. Already recognized by ESPN as the 14th best player in the class of 2018, Jalen has a ton of untapped potential. A Skilled 4 man who has range out to the three point line, throughout the week Sticks showed us a wide range and ability to score the basketball. With a 7 foot wingspan, Sticks blocks shots consistently and also has the ability to keep smaller guards in front by moving his feet. The only knock on Jalen right now is obviously his slight frame, but with a little size and bulk put on he will be able to pick his school when it is all said and done. Already holding offers from Miami, Providence, etc, look for his recruitment to continue to skyrocket.

2018 Sean Goode 6’11 PF — Sean is my vote for biggest blow up at camp. Attending Trinity High School, Sean came into camp as an unknown commodity, but definitely did not leave that way. Earning a spot in the Top 20 all-star game, Sean proved he belong early getting dunk after dunk, blocking shots, running the floor, rebounding, and even making 3’s!! If he does not end up a top 50 player in this class I would be shocked. He appears to be a Dylan Painter who is more developed and better athletically at this age. Sean’s publicity is bound to sky rocket and he has a chance to play basketball at the highest level. Much like other players his height and age, Sean needs to keep putting more size and bulk on, so stronger players can’t push him off the block, and he needs to continue to develop his back to the basket game, but Sean is an absolute STAR in making. He should be a fun one to watch over the next few days.

2018 Myles Dread 6’4 SG — Myles is a kid who I have known for a few years since his middle school days playing for the Metro Flyers. The most impressive attribute that Myles possesses is an undeniable competitiveness to be the best. He does not care who you are, he is going to go at you neck to prove he is better than you (and usually he is). Myles has gone from being a four man in middle school, to a 3 during his Freshman year at Gonzaga, to now being a true combo 1-2. This is a testament to his ridiculous work ethic.  Throughout the week, he got the basket at will, made open 3’s, got his teammates involved, guarded, and won. Myles needs to get a little more elusive because he often is able to over power his way to the rim using his size and strength now, but as he gets older this will not be as easy for him. As Myles continues to hone all of his guard skills, he is a no brainer HM kid, who will 100 percent help his team WIN championships.

2018 Luther Muhammed 6’4 SG — Luther is a scorer who has one speed, “get buckets”. A high volume shooter and scorer, Luther has the ability to LIGHT the scoreboard up in a variety of ways. He can make threes and score in the paint at will. A big time athlete with elite quickness, he scores the ball in every way imaginable. It really doesn’t matter who he is playing against, Luther is going to impose his will on the offensive side of the ball. The one thing Luther needs to continue to improve on is his decision making, but with the attention he will continue to attract from defenses both on the UA circuit and at Hudson Catholic, he is bound to become a great distributor. He is another player from camp who definitely has Top 100 type talent.

2018 Daniel Sackey 5’9 PG —  An undersized guard with ELITE level quickness, I would be shocked if there is a faster guard in the entire all of North America than this jet. The Canadian guard capped off a great week of camp by winning the MVP of the Top 20 all-star game. He has the ability that most do not of being able to change directions, pull up for jump shots, get to the basket, and get his teammates involved all without slowing down (even a little bit). He keeps the pressure on the defense at ALL times, and I have yet to see someone keep him in front. He may be one of the players that High Major coaches pass up on because of his size, and end up regretting it in the NCAA tournament when he is torching their team. I am a huge fan of this kids upside, and as of now he is still looking for a prep home in the United States. High level player.

2019 Mikeal Jones 6’7 SF — A top 25 player in the class of 2019 by most people’s accounts, Mikeal “Hollywood” Jones has the feel of a future blue blood. An infectious personality, and a monster game give him the ability to lead others on the court. One of only 2 2019 players at camp to make the Top 20 all-star game, the future Roman Catholic product showed an ability to play both inside and outside, and a basketball IQ that was very advanced for his age. I usually at this age use the terms “could be” and “should be”, but in Hollywood’s case I am will to say he will be the next big thing to come out of Philly.

2018 Tyree Pickron 6’3 SG — The main reason why I am a huge fan of this Archbishop Wood product is the way he plays the game. Watching him play, he plays as if he is a player just trying to make the team, by bounce passing, jump stopping, communicating on defense, taking charges, diving on lose balls, but in the end you realize that he is also a HIGH level player. In the period of one game I watched him make the correct play 5 straight times while not forcing it and on the 6th possession he rose up and dunked it ON the defense. Tyree is an absolute coaches dream, and the only gripe I have about him at times is making sure he realizes just how very good he really is. After almost averaging a double double as a Freshman in the Philly Catholic League, he is primed for a MONSTER Sophomore season, and I have faith that he is going to live up to expectations. Tyree looks to be at least an A10 prospect and most likely will be on a HM roster before it is all said and done. He should be on St Joes/Temple/Lasalle radars very soon.

2018 Noah Locke 6’1 Combo — A winning floor general, he is a major prospect coming out of the DMV. He has the ability to make pull up jumpers consistently, get his teammates involved, and very rarely makes the wrong basketball play. He may be someone who it takes more than 1 evaluation for a coach to realize the value he brings to a game, but the more you watch this kid the more you realize how good he really is. Another top 20 all-star at Elite Session 2 and Future All American camp, Noah is a humble kid who is hungry to get better.

2018 Justin Winston 6’6 SF — Justin is a freaky athlete with a developing skill set. He has shown the ability to take games over with his offensive rebounding, deflections, and energy, and he has also shown a streaky ability to make 3’s and get to the basket against slower and less athletic opponents. When motivated, he has shown all the makings of being the NJ Playaz next HM player, and his motivation seems to be getting better every time I see him. He will 100 percent be flying all over the rims for the next few years in NJ High School basketball, and then flying all over the rims on ESPN some day at a High Major school.

2018 Immanuel Quickley 6’4 PG — A little bit under the radar, Quickly proved to be the best PGs and one of the best prospects at camp. Also having a very good GPA, he has attracted some of the best schools in the country to recruit him at an early age. A savvy, pass first, PG Immanuel has the feel of a high level guard who will be playing for money some day. Long arms and the ability to dribble through tight places makes him a nightmare for the defense to keep in front, and the vision and court sense of a young Jason Kidd. I am a HUGE fan of this kid, and I know he is destined to do great things. He had one stretch in the top 20 game where he hit 3 or 4 straight threes and made it look easy. Could easily end up a Kansas or Duke recruit some day, and he will continue to jump on the national scene with every person who watches him. He is THAT good.

2018 Marcus Littles 6’10 C — An Absolute beast, Marcus has the height and the girth of very few players in High School basketball. The Team Final product has shown great touch around the basket and even made some smooth 15 footers throughout the week. Sometimes with Marcus his strength is a little bit of his weakness, as he needs to continue to work on his foot speed to hedge screens and recover, but his potential to be great is through the roof. Also, Marcus has a better back to the basket game than most players his age, and obviously with his size and strength, once he gets down there nobody is moving him. Another kid with a great personality who is fun to be around, and his teammates really seem to like as well, which is always good to see when dealing with high level recruits. With a little refining and some elbow grease, Marcus will be another FAA HM big man that we will be reading about in the sports section of the newspaper.

2018 Isaiah Mucious 6’8 SF — That is not a typo ladies and gentleman Isaiah is a 6’8 small forward as a rising Sophomore. He showed his full arsenal is the Top 20 all-star games and kept his team in the game with 3 straight possessions nailing a three, and a fourth crossing over his opponent and scoring at the basket. Isaiah is a tremendously skilled 3 man with the length that very few players in his class can rival. Once his basketball IQ matches his talent and his decision making improves, he has the ability to be a another Kevin Durant type point forward.

2018 Emmanuel Ummofia 7’1 C — New to the northeast, Emmanuel was hard to miss at Future All American Camp. A True 7 footer with a 7’7 wingspan, Ummofia is an imposing figure in the paint. More surprising than his massive size is his ability to stretch the floor and make shots from the outside, while also showing great touch around the basket. He has a developing feel for the game, and once he plays more basketball the big guy will be on the radar of many High Level D1 Schools. Already getting strong interest from Florida, Emmanuel has a huge upside and the work ethic to go with it. James Barrett, who is responsible for much of the development of Seton Hall star Isaiah Whitehead, and now is working Emmanuel out, says he has the ability to end up a Top 100 type prospect before it is all said and done (and I do not disagree). It is hard to find this kind of size and when you can add a strong work ethic to the mix, it will be interesting to see where he ends up!!

2018 Chase Audige 6’4 SG — The Hill School’s newest addition may be the BEST prospect they have ever had. Chase, a ridiculous athlete who can also consistently make threes, showed himself to be one of the best 2018 prospects in the northeast and maybe the country. Playing alongside fellow high major prospect Tyree Pickron, he was one of the funnest and most intriguing prospects to watch all week. Constantly finishing with dunk after dunk at the rim, the guard showed a tight handle and smooth 3 point shot on more than one occasion. Along with Sean Good, Chase wins the award for most unknown prospect to make a splash at camp. All week long Chase had scouting services circling his name and talking about him. If he is able to transition to a one, which he shows a lot of the ball skills to be able to do, he could be SCARY good. He should be a key piece to the Hill School team that should threaten for a league title as only a Sophomore. and from here on out his destiny is in his own hands. He has all the tools to, like many of these other prospects, be playing at a very High level college in a few years.

2018 Jonathan Kabongo 6’3 PG —   Taking after his older brother Myck, Jonathan is an explosive scorer who also showed the ability to create for his teammates throughout the week. The Huntington Prep future star was one of the best PG’s in camp and he lived up to the offers he already has from Washington State, Indiana, and Virginia Tech. Sometimes taking some ill advised shots, he will need to continue to become a true PG, but this will come with time as he is working with one of the best coaches in the country Arkell Bruce at Huntington Prep. All you need to do is watch some of his electrifying highlights from this week to know he will be a name to remember for a long time.

2018 Martin Mann 6’6 PF — One of the more fundamentally sound players at camp, Martin (younger brother of Florida State’s Terrance), was a player that grows on you the more you see him. Not an overly explosive athlete, Martin relies on his court sense, hands, and finishing ability to put the ball in the basket. Earning his way into the top 20 all-star game, Martin showed a consistent ability to produce, a quality that is often overlooked. Coaches will always be able to have a spot on the roster for a stat stuffer like this BABC product. Martin appears at this stage in the process to be a Mid to High player, and no matter where he ends up he will help his team win at a very high level with his production.

2018 Brandon Slater 6’7 SF — A long, athletic, slippery small forward, Brandon can get to the basket at will. He will be a key contributer next season at Paul VI for coach Ferello, one of the best High School Basketball coaches in the country. Brandon, who also can step out to the three point line and drill shots, is one of the most athletic players in the country at this age and is being tracked by high major schools across the nation. Brandon needs to continue to work on his guard skills to make sure he is a true small forward at the next level, but according to one high major coach that I spoke to, what will always separate him as a major prospect is his motor and offensive rebounding ability. Yet another stud in the loaded WCAC.

2018 Bryce Wills 6’4 PG — The best prospect in the New Heights program, Bryce has all the tools to be great. At this point in his career he is a jack of all trades, and has the ability to improve in each area. Already a top 20 all-star at camp, he has rapidly improved into one of the BEST guards in NYC. Chris Alesi is known for developing guards, and he will continue to help guide Bryce to an inevitable High Major future. I really liked the way Bryce wanted the ball in the top 20 all-star game, and no matter who he played against he had the mentality to go at the other players neck. A true star in the making.

2018 Chris Childs 6’0 PG — Chris is the only player on this list that was not in the top 20 all-star game, but the reason he makes this list is NOBODY in the country has improved more over the past 3 years than Chris has. The future Wilbraham and Munson guard is a stud now. He can score at will and lead his team to a championship at Future All American Camp and a spot in the top Sophomore All Star game. He has transitioned into a true point guard as well, taking care of the ball and helping his teammates to easy shots all week. Chris is starting to develop an underdog swagger and playing with a chip on his shoulder against each and every player he sees. The Harlem United Guard will continue to see his stock rise, and he has made himself a definite Division 1 prospect (maybe mid to high). If he improves even a quarter of the amount he improved over the last few years as I have watched him, he will be one of the best guards in the area (and beyond). It also should be noted that he is a great student, which will make him marketable to many colleges, and it shows his work ethic as a whole.

2018 Nate Roberts 6’8 PF —  One of the more surprising players of the week was 6’8 Power Forward Nate Roberts of Baltimore. He was the most skilled big guy at camp, and at times it wasn’t event close. He showed the ability to catch in the high post and attack with either hand, and also make shots with a smooth lefty shot. Also, with a long, lanky body, Nate runs the floor relentlessly for easy buckets. He has a motor that never stops, and is looking for every opportunity to score as he proved with a very productive top 20 all-star game. Nate needs to add strength to a skinny frame, but he is an absolute stud. I would be hard pressed to find a more skilled player with his height and length in the country.




Stars Shine at Hoop Group Elite Session 1 and 2: By Elite Director Bryan Weber

11214099_929040007160531_2836054462961970039_n 2

Throughout the summer, a number of high level prospects have attended Hoop Group Elite camp with the intent of making a name for themselves. A tremendous amount of players did just that. This is a master list of players who came and played well garnering attention from college coaches and media outlets across the country.

2016 NATE KNIGHT 6’8 PF Nate wins the award for biggest blow up at camp. The versatile 6’8 power forward from the DC Blue Devils (NH) came to camp with very limited interest. His coach TJ Thompson told me before camp that he was prime to turn heads and get some offers, but even he could not have seen the end result. Following camp, Nate received hard scholarship offers from 26 Division 1 schools, including many A10 schools. Goes to show that, if you keep working hard and putting yourself in good situations, its never too late to play college basketball at the highest level. It should be noted that Nate is a tremendous student as well, which many colleges are factoring in with their offers. If you need a do it all, swiss army knife, 4 man who can shoot it out to 3 point range, this is your guy.

2017 Ejike Obinna 6’9 C — Coming in at a VERY close second place in the blow up category, following an MVP performance at Elite Session 1 Ejike went from having zero offers to 12 (11 being from High Major Schools). The ultimate play hard, glue guy, Ejike played like an absolute monster at Elite Session 1. He had multiple games with 5+ Dunks and 10+ rebounds, he has a motor that will not stop. A developing skill set and leadership from Virginia Academy’s Duval Simmons, would lead one to believe the sky is the limit for this kid. Just about every High Major school in the country should be on him, and don’t be surprised if the school that recruits him hardest and longest wins out.

2016 Brandon Anderson 6’0 PG — Brown got an absolute steal with Brandon Anderson, which is a testament to identifying this kids special talent when nobody else in the country did. Following a top 20 all-star performance at Elite Session 1, Brandon went from having 1 offer to 6 or 7 offers from some of the best Academic Schools in the country. Coaches realized they needed to recruit him because he never gets sped up, and with an IQ off the chart is an absolute winner. Add in the fact that he has been making shots at a ridiculous clip, he looks like he could be one of the best prospects Brown has had in a really long time. Congrats to coach Martin and his staff, and congrats to the Anderson family!!

2018 Luther Muhammad 6’4 SG — A top 20 all-star at Elite Session 1 AND Future All American Camp he is one of the best scorers we saw the whole summer regardless of class, Luther has a knack to put the ball in the bucket. A very streaky shooter, who can score in bunches when he get hot. Also, what does not get looked at enough, when talking about high level prospects is what kind of kid they are. The Hudson Catholic product, Luther is a HIGH level kid. respectful and motivated to get better. Look out for this kid to end up at the highest level.

2016 Chuba Ohams 6’7 SF — Following a 7 inch growth spurt, Chuba went from being a 6 foot marginal recruit to a 6’7 do it all small forward. The best way to describe Chuba is a hunger to improve. Already with A10 interest and offers across the board, this kid has a crazy desire to be great. 5:45 Am during Elite Session 1, I looked down at my phone surprised to see Chuba calling me. Even more to my surprise, was when I answered and he said “Coach, I am in front of the gym can you let me in, so I can get shots up?” Although, needing to obviously put on some muscle and strength, Chuba has a chance to be a special long term prospect, and one of the next grade small forwards to come out of NYC.

2016 Ceasar Dejesus 6’2 SG — Ceasar has been a long time Hoop Group camper and he really saw his stock rise with us this summer. Attending Mt. Zion for a post grad year this fall, Ceasar proved that he is one of the best scorers in the country. Following an MVP performance at Hoop Group Academic Elite Session 1, Ceasar proved that he belong with the upper tier players in this region, when he won the MVP of the Top 20 all-star game during Elite Session 1. People had questioned his shooting before the summer, but after watching him throughout this summer it is clear that not only is he working on his outside shot, he has become a more than adequate shooter.

2017 Nate Pierre Louis 6’2 Combo — Coming into Elite Camp with offers from Miami, Uconn, Providence, Seton Hall, St Joes, St Louis, Texas Tech, to name a few, Nate came into camp with one of the biggest reputations and did not disappoint by making the Top 20 game!! Nate can play the 1 or the 2, and showed his ability to get his teammates involved consistently, while getting to the basket and scoring himself at times. Nate still has some work to do on his outside shooting, but playing for one of the best high schools in the country and for one of the best AAU programs (Sports U) in the country, there is no doubt he will be a high major Guard and will succeed at that level.

2016 Davion Mintz 6’4 PG — Playing for North Mecklenberg (NC) in High School for legendary coach Duane “Nascar” Lewis, Davion has been on people’s radars for a while. The 6’4 wiry point guard showed us why throughout all of Elite Session 1 and Team Camp, and attracted attention from everyone from Fordham to Vanderbilt. Although, not necessarily looking the part upon first glance, Davion does a great job of letting his game speak for himself. With great length, he is able to get into passing lanes and cause disruption defensively, while have a crafty ability to attack the basket and draw multiple defenders offensively.  There is no question he deserved his top 20 status, and showed his winning mentality while taking North Meck. to the championship of Team Camp before losing to eventual champion Hill (PA).

2016 Stevie Jordan 6’0 PG — Despite having success for one of the marquee AAU programs in the northeast (Philly Pride), Stevie has surprisingly had an underwhelming overall recruitment, that is sure to change. Holding an offer from Hampton and Richmond, Stevie played like a monster at camp that was going at the necks of all of the highly regarding point guards. Highlighted by an ankle breaking crossover that left the defender on the ground, Stevie showed his ability to score as well as set his teammates up for success. Look for his recruitment to pick up throughout his senior year, once various colleges wake up and smell the coffee.

2016 Jose Martinez 6’9 SF/PF — Following a Senior All Star game MVP Jose Martinez received offers from San Diego and Canisius and interest from many more. Although upon first glance you see a skinny unassuming, yet tall frame, Jose is deadly because of his ability to knock down shots at his height. Clearly still needing to put on more weight, he showed how difficult he can be to guard when he is making shots. Playing for one of the BEST up and coming AAU programs in the country, Under Armour’s NY Jayhawks, Jose has turned himself into a desirable recruit.

2017 Jahlil Jenkins 6’0 PG — One of my favorite players from the entire summer, another Duval Simmons (Uncommon Bulls) product Jahlil Jenkins and just about ready to burst on to everyones scene. After his Top 20 All Star nomination Jahlil recieved his first three Division 1 offers, and I would be SHOCKED if he does not end up with many more. He is a true point guard who is lightning fast, with a tremendous feel for the game. Between Jahlil and Ejike Obinna, the Uncommon Bulls are set to be one of the best 17U teams on the East next season.

2017 Wabissa Bede 6’1 PG — High Majors need to get off of their hands and pull the trigger on this kid. He is a superstar in the making. A winner on and off the court, he won the MVP of Elite Session 2, and is hungry for more. Beyond any of the skills he has on the court, which are through the roof, he is also clearly a leader off the court. An infectious personally, that will lead a HM team to a championship much the way that he lead the Mass Rivals this AAU Season. Can’t wait to see where the next few years take this kid.

2016 Chris Baldwin 6’9 PF — No player in the country has grown up as much over the last few years as Chris Baldwin. Already being recruited by some of the biggest HM programs in the country, Chris has answered every question people have had with his attitude. Not much I can put here on paper that people don’t already know about his ability to dominate a game with his size and skill, but what I saw at camp was a kid with a motor who was a tremendous teammate all week. Looks like he is focused and ready to take his talents to the next level.

2017 Samuel Japhet- Mathius 6’10 C — A dominating presence when you first see him, Sam was one of the largest players we had at camp all Summer. However, Sam is more than just a big body. He has a versatile game in the post that was evident during the Elite Session 2 Top 20 All Star game. Already with offers from multiple High Major Programs such as USC and Oregon, Sam should be one of the most heavily recruited players in the nation after his Junior season at Vermont Academy. With a little work on his conditioning and handling of adversity, Sam’s ceiling is through the roof.

2016 Jimbo Lull 6’10 C — I am a little surprised more High Major schools have not expressed more interest in the NE Playaz big man Jimbo Lull. An imposing figure, standing nearly 7 foot tall with a huge frame, Jimbo has improved more over the past year than almost any prospect in the country. He has a decent amount of skill and his footwork is constantly getting better. With his size and rapid development, Jimbo should be moving into the eye sights of various HM schools across the country.

2016 Ryan Gomes 6’10 C — An absolute STEAL for Mount St. Mary’s, another situation where a coach doing his job, much like Brandon Anderson and Brown, landed a great get for Coach Christian. Ryan is active, and wiry, but also tough and finishes around the basket. He has a chance to be VERY good in that league for all 4 years that he is there. Although only getting a few offers, all of the schools that showed interest, but did not pull the trigger, will regret the hesitation throughout his college career. Congrats to Ryan and Mt. St Mary’s!! A Top 20 All Star at Elite Session 2.

2016 Tyrn Flowers 6’7 SF — A shot DRILLER. Tyrn has been overlooked as a fourth option on Adidas powerhouse NY Rens. Ty is one of the smoothest players in the country who is another player who hit a late 5 inch growth spurt. High major coaches from across the country want to complain that they do not make enough shots, and then want to tell me that Tyrn’s ceiling is A10. Any High Major coach who needs a versatile shot MAKER who is rangy and athletic, feel free to recruit Tyrn. You will NOT regret it.

2018 Mamadou Doucoure 6’9 PF — Elite Session 2’s Most Outstanding Prospect, looks like Mamadou will be the next in line for the PSA Cardinals (and Our Savior New American) in terms of HIGH major big guys. Mamadou dunks everything around the basket and has a yes sir/no sir mentality. Also, one of the best factors about this prospect his his ability and desire to sprint the floor on every play. I have a feeling he will be in a situation where he will be able to choose whatever school he wants to when this recruiting process is over.

2017 Hassan French 6’7 SF/PF — Beast Mode. Hassan French is a man-child that has no regard for human life when he attacks the basket. Attracting interest from everyone from upper tier A10 programs to HM programs in the ACC and Big 10. A hybrid Power Forward who has the skills to take it out to the three point line, there is no question that he will continue to be a highly sought after commodity. A top 20 all-star at Elite Session 2, Hassan has been a Hoop Group Camper for a long time, and I love to see the way he continues to develop.

2016 Najee Garvin 6’8 PF — Two things that often do not go hand and hand are under the radar and Team Loaded. Ty White has turned Team Loaded into one of, if not the, premier AAU program in the country. And with that, Team Loaded attracts some of the most exposure out of any AAU program in the country. However, when you are on a team that has multiple HIGH HIGH major players going to the likes of Kentucky, Virginia, and NC State, a Mid Major player can get lost in the shuffle. Najee is 100 percent a mid major college basketball player. He is a high level athlete that can make shots out to 15 feet, and defend multiple positions. He has a coming out party by making the top 20 All Star Game at Elite Session 2, and I would be SHOCKED if someone from a Mid Major program did not pull the trigger on him during the high school season.

2017 Aaron Wheeler 6’7 SF — Fresh off an amazing week at Elite Session 2, Aaron just picked up an offer from Providence, which is sure to spur MANY more High Major schools to come forward. Aaron is an elite level athlete that can do a little bit of everything. Mostly a slasher, but he has the ability to make shots from the outside, and with his length, when motivated, can be on of the best defenders in the country. A times he tends to shy away from contact, but as time progresses, he has as much raw talent as anyone in the country, and if he is dedicated he could end up being a hot commodity to play at a High Major school.

2018 Nate Laszewski 6’6 SF — This kid has Wisconsin or Iowa written all over him. One of the premier shooters in his class, he is also one of the more sneaky athletic players in the country. Nate is a quiet kid who tends to lead by example, but his quiet demeanor quickly turns to a killer on the floor. Playing for TJ Gassanola and the NE Playaz, he will clearly continue to develop, and if he gets to 6’8 or 6’9 which seems likely, this kid is going to be scary.
