The inaugural Prep Hoops Missouri Top 250 Expo was held last weekend at the Center of St. Louis. Nearly 200 players were in attendance for what was a very successful event. Throughout the week, we have been posting positional breakdowns of the players at the event for each class. Today, we take a look at the Class of 2019 forwards at the Top 250 Expo.
Isiaih Mosley 6’5″ Rock Bridge: 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. He also spent a lot of time on the perimeter where he handled the ball, dropped dimes and knocked down 3-pointers. He also got out on the break and threw down a few nice slam dunks.
Malachy Simpson 6’6″ Webster Groves: He was very good in the skills sessions where he was able to showcase his versatile skill set for a young man of his size. He can handle the ball and make perimeter shots with confidence. Simpson also has a solid post game with good moves and good touch around the basket.
Jason Montogermy 6’2″ Marquette: A strong combo forward who is fundamentally sound and quite versatile. He has the ability to power his way to the basket on the drive and finish strong. He is a matchup problem with his ability to drive by bigger defenders and post up smaller ones. He is a high motor kid who plays bigger than his actual size.
Dajuan Young 6’3″ Trinity: A very athletic forward with plenty of explosion and bounce. Young had a formidable defensive presence with his shot blocking, where he was the best at the camp. His combination of athleticism, length and timing made it easy for him to block shots without fouling. He threw down some very nice dunks during the skills session.
Hayden Towner 6’2″ Van Buren: A blue-collar inside player who was productive with his consistent effort and physical play. He wasn’t the biggest post player, but he got after it pretty well with his strength and hustle. He did a nice job of the offensive boards.
Michael Jackson 6’3″ Pattonville: A young man who played with a lot of effort and energy throughout the event. He’s quite lean, but he was always throwing his body in the middle of the action, whether he was slashing to the basket off the dribble or crashing the offensive boards.
