There are a few sophomores that have played important roles for their high schools this season that are under the radar and could make a name for themselves this summer during AAU. The summer heading into the athlete’s junior season is when most colleges are searching to see who they could offer. As AAU season approaches here are just a few under the radar names that may have a breakout summer.
Imani Lopez (Vintage HS) – 6’2′ SG – Team Arsenal
Imani is super athletic and plays longer than his height. His game is similar to a young Leandro Barbosa as he has good speed and length, and his handle is starting to improve. He should receive more interest this summer.
Daniel Fagan (De Anza HS) – 6’1′ PG – Team Rampage
Daniel has grown two to three inches in the past two seasons which will allow him to be an interesting prospect. He has a high basketball IQ and can shoot from the outside.
Brahjon Tompson (James Logan HS) – 5’11’ PG – Undecided
Brahjon is a crafty left-hand point guard who gets to the paint and has good court vision. He can get hot and score in bunches and he has a killer instinct. His play as a sophomore on varsity for James Logan has been pretty impressive and he will definitely have some breakout moments this summer.
Jayvewon Quinn (Antioch HS) – 6’1′ PG – Sac Magic
Jayvewon has great size for a sophomore. He can defend, get to the basket, and he competes at a high level. Jayvewon will gain interest with his play and playing alongside other sophomore phenoms such as Tyler Brinkman, Coleman Hawkins and more.
Robby Beasley (Dublin HS) – 6’1′ PG – West Coast Elite Nor-Cal
Robby is one of the top sophomores in the west-coast which doesn’t really make him under the radar, but we expect him to pick up a lot more major division 1 offers after this summer. Robby plays the point guard better than most juniors and seniors, and he can also score when needed too. Robby will climb most charts on the ratings after his play this summer.
