Battle Zone: Biggest Revelations


On the Rise

San Antonio is smooth shooter with upside

Tory San Antonio (Rancho Verde)

2019, SG, 6-foot-3, 175 pounds

Joel’s Take: San Antonio was a nice revelation, even in this day and age when prospects are noticed at such an early age. He is a solid looking 2-guard prospect with good length, a smooth shooting touch, and his demeanor is terrific (plays hard but is very even keel). With continued development he will have the ability to play somewhere at the next level.


Mr. Glue-Type

Cooper Jervis (Orange Lutheran)

2019, WF, 6-foot-2, 195 pounds

Joel’s Take: Jervis is yet another prospect we noticed that plays with great passion. He plays both ends with energy and purpose. In transition he can rise up and smash it and in the half court set he hit the glass hard and gets numerous energy buckets.

Shooting Machine

Caden Starr (Santa Clarita Christian)

2020, WF, 6-foot-5, 170 pounds

Joel’s Take: Where as his brother is about facilitating, Caden is about scoring. He is the owner of one of the best outside shots for his class and plays with purpose in mind at both ends of the floor.

Blue-Collar Madness

Allen McBride (Centennial)

2019, 6-foot-4, 190 pounds

Joel’s Take: Every team needs a guy like McBride. He is a no nonsense ball player who finishes above the rim, rebounds in and out of his area, and defends multiple positions. He uses his thick frame and good feet to carve out space and due to his soft hands he snatches everything within reach.

Senior Sleeper

Jaishon Forte (Rancho Verde)

2018, WF, 6-foot-4, 185 pounds

Joel’s Take: Forte caught our attention with his lengthy frame and shooting ability. He plays with moxie and possesses a stoic court demeanor. He is at his best knocking in the deep 3-ball and his mechanics look solid. He’s a good athlete and improving his mid-range game will take his game to a new level.

Pierce is a fearless competitor and a definite college pg prospect

Fearless Competitor

Camren Pierce (Etiwanda)

2020, PG, 6-foot, 165 pounds

Joel’s Take: Pierce was one of the bigger revelations at the Battlezone. He flashed moments during the July evaluation period playing for Cal Supreme. However, at this tournament he showed a fearless disposition as he attacked relentlessly off the dribble, exhibited solid on-ball defending skills, and dropped off some nifty passes.
