Our list of 2017’s to watch at the Pocket City X League.
Month: September 2016
We recap the latest in recruiting in the last week from around the state.
One of the sneaky really good teams in Class 4A last year was Moundsview. While the Mustangs didn’t have a Division I or Division II kid on the team, they played sound, fundamental basketball.
They also had plenty of quality talent with guys like Nate Albers, Zeke Thompson and Nick McMillan.
Tonight Ethan Chargois announced his commitment to SMU. Chargois joins an already great class for the Mustangs, which includes Tulsa Central Point Guard Elijah Landrum. SMU could have four players from Oklahoma on their roster if Shake Milton comes back for his junior year. So what does Ethan Chargois bring to SMU? Chargois is a[…]
With the departure of their starting guards of last year, and a new coach leading the way, the question of who would run the PG spot for Northwood Temple was bounced around quite a bit. With Immanuel Bates and Mike Hueitt Jr. transferring in, we already knew that they would have a good amount of surrounding talent if they could find a good PG.
Tonight Union Forward Adrian Rodriguez committed to UTSA. He makes the second player from Oklahoma in the last two years to commit to UTSA. Two years ago it was Tulsa Memorial Post AJ Cockrell who pledged his commitment. Rodriguez was overlooked for most of his high school career. The knock on Rodriguez was always “he is to[…]
Rogers point guard Matt Carik was one of the most impressive players at the Prep Hoops Top 250 Expo Showcase in September. Heading into his senior year, he’s ready to play like that with regularity.
Saint John Paul the Great guard Brandon Edmond must step into a bigger role than initially anticipated as he prepares for his senior season. With his back court mate, junior Daud Avazov out for the season with a torn ACL, Edmond will be asked to pick up the slack.
The bigs were a surprise. The Top 250 Expo in Sioux Falls had a lot more talent up front than we were expected. Here are the standout names.
Green was at times stunningly good this spring, first with Tigers at the state tournament, and then playing with one of the nation’s best 16U squads, Iowa Barnstormers. He’ll dazzle more over the next 12 months, and more high-majors should come calling.
The talented Mosley was the most impressive player at Session 1 at the expo. His versatility was on full display as he got buckets in the low post and made mid-range jumpers in the high post.
Few players put up the numbers that 6-foot-4 Jacob Streit did as a junior for Eden Valley-Watkins last year leading the Eagles to a much better season than expected.
We preview some of the top 2017’s to track at the Metro Indy Fall League.
’18 wing Jarron Coleman is one of the more high-profile wings in the class.
For Sam Lash (2017), a 6’4” guard for Centerville High School (Dayton), the three-point shot sets up the rest of his offensive attack. “It really keeps that defender in an uncomfortable position,” Lash said, of his three-point threat. If the opposing defense doesn’t scheme to keep a guy glued on Lash, he’s going to make[…]
Six-foot-1, 200 pound Sam Arend of Bridgewater/Emery High is on the verge of a huge senior year. He’s planned for this season for a long time.
Herndon Hornets senior guard Liam Harrington ended his recruitment with a pledge to Christopher Newport University earlier this month.
Six-foot-6 and 270 pound Jacob Hojer from Romana, South Dakota (Oldham-Romana/Rutland High) is a top senior shot blocker and a top D2 football recruit.
Here is a look at our preseason selections for the Piedmont Athletic Conference All-League teams.
Preseason Player of the Year:
When you are a 2020 prospect and come away from a camp that features top players in the three classes above you with the overall MVP award that is pretty special. Peoria Manual incoming freshman point guard Adam Miller did just that at the PrepHoopsIllinois Top 250 Expo over the weekend! Miller is an explosive[…]
