The regular season is over and with that, a ton of seniors played their final high school games.
So many 2018 prospects have been overlooked by college programs.
Here is part one of 10 seniors (2018 players) that are underappreciated.
Miles Coleman (Dwyer)
A 6’5″, 187-pounder, Coleman scored a team-best 15 points in the 8A region final loss to eventual state champion Blanche Ely. He uses his length well to score and hold it down defensively. He has one offer from UNF and interest from Jacksonville, Stetson, Lipscomb, Army and Fort Wayne.
Tyrick Brascom (Tampa Bay Tech)
Size has never been an excuse for Brascom. The 5’8″ speedy guard is a playmaker who can get to the rack with ease and burn you from deep. He worked his butt off for an undersized Titans group this season.
Thierry Moliere (Jesuit)
Missing a good portion of his senior season due to a lower body injury, Moliere battled down the stretch to help his Tigers. The 6’0″, 180-pounder is a strong and bruising guard who handles the ball well as a floor general.
Tim Carter (Tampa Catholic)
Much like Brascom and Moliere, Carter is a combination of those two players. A leader by example, the 6’2″, 180-pounder has an impressive mid-range, passing and ability to run an offense in transition. Carter is packed with energy.
Jeff Hernandez (Miami Christian)
Hernandez was instrumental in helping the Victors win back to back Class 2A state titles. He is a gifted outside shooter and a guy who gets to the line often with his aggressiveness. He has a high IQ.
Bershard Edwards (Lehigh)
Part of a family filled with basketball players, Edwards took the reigns at Lehigh these past two seasons. The 6’2″ guard is a true team player and someone who runs an offense well. He’s smart and should find a landing spot.
Stephen Hawkins (Ida Baker)
There aren’t many players that get more locked in than Hawkins. The 6’2″ Ida Baker performed at a high level this season. He shoots very well, can attack when needed and has a very unselfish mindset that would help any team.
Rodwens Albert (Atlantic)
At 6’0″, 170 lbs., Albert has one thing on his mind, scoring. He pulls the trigger more often than not and makes defenses pay if they aren’t set. Albert is a pure scorer with a nice outside touch.
Noah Louis (Palmetto)
The biggest player on this list, Louis is a 6’7″, 190-pounder who did impressive things at Palmetto this season. He doesn’t mind mixing it up inside with his size and strength. A Division II or Division III program could use a player like him.
Rod Boggan (Kathleen)
Boggan is one of many players in his area that can score at will. His shot is impressive and his coaches preach him to shoot away. Boggan needs to get stronger, but he does a lot of little things defensively with his tenacity that doesn’t show up on the stat sheet.
