2017 Hoop Group Girls’ Top 100 Standouts

Hoop Group Headquarters has had a great turnout of talented girls in the month of October. To start it off we had the Girls Top 100 on Saturday October 14th. At the event 9th-12 grade girls were looking to showcase their skills in front of college coaches. Among the talented group there were a few standouts that received an honorable mention. First and foremost, a senior that already plays like a college player, Precious Allah. Precious is a floor general, with her experience and vocalness she is a dime on the floor. Her ability to get all her teammates involved and still rack up stats herself, makes Precious a valuable college prospect.

 

A freshmen worth mentioning is Abby Antognoil. Abby is a point guard much like WNBA player Diana taurasi; she can use her athleticism to drive through traffic, finish at the rim, and is very unselfish with the ball, always looking to hit the open teammate. A high school player that plays well above her age and will contribute well to her high school program this year.

 

 

 

Also, there are two more weeks left in the girls high school fall league here at Hoop Group Headquarters. Come on out and support your favorite local team before the season starts!

2017 Fall Top 100 Recap | Weekend 3

2017 Top 100 Recap

New York . Northern Virginia . New England

Ian Anderson

A 6’6 forward with loads of skill, Ian Anderson put on a show at the Northern Virginia Top 100. He runs like a deer, has soft hands, and shows a capability to step out and hit 3’s. He showcased all of that in his two games at the event, all while displaying a constantly running motor. All of that combined with is 4.0+ GPA and you can see why high academic schools from every level will be making Anderson a priority in the 2019 class.

Noel Brown

A 6’10 post player, Noel Brown is beginning to emerge in the 2019 class. He blocked shots, rebounded on both ends, and continued to show improving footwork and skill around the basket. Noel’s ability to carve out space on the block and finish in traffic is what impressed so many local coaches and scouts. With a high ceiling and an impressive work ethic, don’t be surprised to see Noel Brown heavily recruited over the next year.

Jordan Hairston

A 6’2 guard from Westfield HS, Jordan Hairston was one of the most polished guards we saw this fall. An ability to create offense for himself and others is what makes the high level point guard so fun to watch. In Northern Virginia, he played with a supreme confidence, and carved up opponents with long range shooting and crafty playmaking.

Romar Reid

A 6’2 do-it-all combo, Reid was excellent in NYC. He scored in bunches with a quick burst to the rim and a more than capable 3pt shot. Reid showed an ability to dissect defenses when playing in a ball screen, as well as create for his teammates with timely drives and passes. A high energy player, with good athleticism, we’d expect Romar Reid to have a great senior season.

 

 

Yancy Bynum

Bynum was the definition of explosive at the Top 100. He used supreme quickness and ball handling to blow by anyone who matched up with him. He got to the rim with ease, and used his burst and creative finishes at the rim to score. A junior at local H.D. Woodson, Bynum is almost impossible to pressure, and is primed for a big year in the DC. Metro Area.

Chris Weaver

A big bodied post Chris Weaver seemed to do it all this Fall. He moves extremely well for his size, and shows a soft touch around the basket. On top of that he does all the things a coach wants a player to do. Communicates, plays hard, defends and makes simple plays. Weaver has all the intangibles you could ask for, while possessing a great amount of skill.

Taelon Martin Taelon continues to show why he is being recruited at the highest of levels.  One of the best athletes in his class, he spent the entire event slashing through the lane and finishing above the rim with vicious dunks.  He showed an improved jump shot making shots off the dribble behind ball screens.  Big time weekend for this high level sophomore!

Alex Karaban

Alex showed why he will be a priority recruit in the coming years.  The tall, long forward has the ability to do it all on the court.  He is most dangerous right now stretching the floor, making at least three 3’s in each of the games he played.  He also flashed moves on the block as well as the ability to face up from the mid post.  As he continues to develop, he will be a nightmare matchup for anyone who tries to guard him.

 

Prestons Santos 

A long, rangy wing, Preston showed off his entire skill set this weekend.  He handled the ball, made plays in the lane, and knocked down jump shots.  He also has the athletic ability to guard multiple positions.  Preston is bound for a big high school season as he continues to improve.

 

 

 

Gedi Juozapaitis

Gedi has a game that translate to the next level immediately.  He has a big, strong frame that made it near impossible to keep him out of the lane.  Every time he was in the open court he was making plays both at the rim and with the right pass.  Whichever coach is lucky enough to land him as a recruit will have someone ready to contribute day 1!
