Academic Elite 2 Day 2 Top Prospects

Reading, Pa– Day two at Albright was just as exciting as day one. over 60 coaches were in the building recruiting Wednesday and we saw a lot of competitive, and high IQ action. Here are some players who showed they can find a spot on a college program.

Evan Horn | 2016 | Cedar Crest (PA)

Evan plays with an endless motor. The 6’1 guard has a great physique and good strength. He flies around the court defensively, playing pressure defense on the ball and always being in the right position off it. Offensively he has deep range shooting ability, but was most effective today putting his head down and getting to the rim.

Jaylen Prophet | 2016 | Olmstead (NY)

Jaylen is a point guard guys love playing with at camp; he makes his teammates better. Jaylen is a strong penetrator, and got himself into the lane on numerous occasions. Once he got into the lane he either scored, or when you thought he was going to shoot, conducted gorgeous and creative passes to set guys up with lay ups.

Luke Stambaugh | 2016 | Pinelands HS (NJ)

Shooter! Luke was making it rain from the outside on day two. First defenders made the mistake of leaving him alone on the arc, and he made them pay. Then they guarded him and relaxed when they thought he was out of his range, he pulled up from deep and knocked it in anyway. Got to put a hand up on Luke or he’ll make you pay.

Jack Rauch | 2016 | Blair Academy 

Jack is a very sound and solid player on the hardwood. At 6’7, he does everything you need a post player to do. He is a wide-bodied post so instead of trying to jump with guys for rebounds, he puts a body on them and blocks out. He also has a good mid range jumper, which he put on display. He is definitely a presence inside.

Tucker Richardson | 2017 | Hunterdon Central (NJ)

Tucker is a high IQ player on the floor. He plays with a poise and composure that many young players don’t have. Tucker has good vision on the floor; he always has his head up and rarely misses his teammates on their cuts. Aside from dropping dimes, Tucker is also a capable shooter, making open shots today when left open.

Jacob O’Connell | 2019 | Voorhees HS (NJ)

Without even playing a high school game yet, Jacob shows how high his ceiling can be if he grows, figuratively not literally. He’s already 6’7 and still going. Jacob runs the floor well for a post player. He’s active on the blocks, constantly sealing his man and getting good position inside. He also finished nicely around the rim. Whether it was off dump off passes or offensive rebounds, he was able to convert.

Jordan Guzman | 2016 | Xaverian (NY)

Jordan has a smooth game. At 5’10 he’s not the biggest player on the court, but he’s quick, and gets by defenders. He had success today getting into the lane and finishing himself. Nine times out of ten when he got to the rim, he finished.

Jorge Alonso | 2016 | Sta. Maria del Pilar (ESP)

Jorge showed us he can shoot the basketball. Playing as a shooting guard/wing, he was a knock down shooter off the catch. He then showed his high IQ by not relying solely on his jump shot. When defenders closed out too hard, he utilized a pump fake and got his man off the ground, allowing him to get to the basket.
