Week 3 of the Hillsborough County Spring League is taking place this week.
I checked out three games at Riverview on Tuesday night in which host Riverview, Sickles and Brooks DeBartolo each played one another.
It is early in the year, so teams are adjusting to new players, rotations and simply trying to get things together with progress.
Here are the top performers from the night.
Jaden Ramos (Riverview)
The most complete scorer and aggressor was Jaden Ramos. The 2020 Riverview guard/forward is used to playing against bigger bodies and it showed. A 6’4″ athlete, Ramos was scoring at will, grabbing rebounds and setting up his teammates for 3-pointers in both corners.
Tyler Cauley (Riverview)
A lengthy and high IQ point guard, Tyler Cauley is a legitimate 6’5″ as a rising sophomore. The 2021 guard has some impressive vision for his age and he isn’t afraid to mix it up in transition with some tough passes.
D’Angelo Jackson (Sickles)
A sparkplug off the bench for Sickles, D’Angelo Jackson gives the new-look Gryphons plenty of energy. The 2020 guard is not going to scare anyone at his 5’11” frame and he would be better off if he was stronger in his upper body. But he is a nice piece for Sickles moving forward.
Jean Garcia (Sickles)
The best shooter for the Gryphons has been Jean Garcia this spring. A 2019 guard still needs to work on his attacks to the rack, but his ability to shoot with ease is something to monitor. He has the looks of the team’s leading scorer as a senior.
Trae Martin (Brooks DeBartolo)
Brooks DeBartolo has no one back from this past season and were missing two players due to other sports on Tuesday night. However, one prospect that stood out was 2021 forward Trae Martin. Full of length and jumping ability, the 6’5″ forward is going to be leaned on down low this season.
