WASHINGTON, DC — With the conclusion of the IAC/MAC Challenge, its now time to take a look at some of the standouts. Here we highlight nine available seniors who we think can help a college program in some capacity down the road.
2018 Domenick Bailey can flat out play. Whether you need him to score, defend, or lead by example, he is prepared to do it. The unsigned senior was an absolute pest defensively. While he didn’t score that much, he found a way to make his mark on the game and help his team get a win.
Domenick Bailey won the Back to Basics trophy last night! Dom set the TONE on the DEFENSIVE end with ball pressure and active hands. He and the entire team did an awesome job following the defensive game plan. #oneteamonegoal #noexcusesjustadjustments pic.twitter.com/7mEbrIFxK2

We think Jacob Boles could be a diamond in the rough. The versatile forward rejected four shots, and showed nice touch from the perimeter along with a consistently high motor. He’s an excellent communicator, especially on defense, and brings the toughness that coaches at the next level look for.
If you need a guard that is wired to score, Elijah Bowens is your man. The crafty guard is an ambidextrous finisher in the paint, and can put points on the board in a hurry. We would like to see Bowens improve his feel for the game, and work harder to get his teammates involved.
After not making the varsity team as a junior, 2018 Miles Davis has come back with a vengeance this season. For much of the game, the 6’3 swing man looked like Landon’s best player. Davis has a prolific mid range pull up jumper, a strong work rate, and a quick release.
One word to describe Kevin Fee? Shooter. And at 6’4, he has good size on the wing. His release is a bit unorthodox, but his height helps neutralize that a bit, and the results are typically positive.
Mike Grimes brings toughness, energy, and craftiness to any back court. The southpaw is an adept paint getter who doesn’t mind traffic in the paint, and is built to deal with contact. Grimes is known to put up points in a hurry, and can stretch the floor conssitently from three.
We mentioned Isaiah Moore in our superlatives article because of his intangibles, and there’s no question that he’s one of the more underrated guards in the local 2018 class. He may be small, but he more than makes up for it with his skill set, effort, knowledge of the game, and fearless mentality.
Will Mulquin is known primarily for two things, the ability to shoot the ball consistently for the perimeter, and his consistently high motor. He’s an underrated shot blocker, and a sneaky good athlete who will actively contest shots at the rim. Mulquin is the type of player who can score without having a play called for him.
Lincoln Yeutter has battled numerous injuries over the last 6 months, but we had the opportunity to check him out on Saturday night. At 6’2, he brings good size to any back court, and can play both guard spots. Yeutter is a bonafide three level scorer who defends, communicates, and keeps his teammates involved.
