Below I take a look at five prospects from the 2020 class that impressed me this past weekend in D.C. as we continue our superlative series from the first live period.

2020 6’9 Day’Ron Sharpe | Garner Road

Day’Ron was arguably one of the top players in the whole event out of every age group. He led the 16 and under age group with 24 points per game and averaged 7 points per game. Sharpe is a physical force down-low in the paint and can shoot it well for a big man. He is starting to earn a lot of high major interest from numerous programs.

2020 6’6 Gary Grant | NY Jayhawks

Grant was one of the most athletic players I watched this past weekend. He excels in transition and can finish extremely well at the rim. He is a guy that can get rebounds on both offense and defense. He also showed he has the ability to shoot the ball from many different areas on the court. High Majors programs are already showing interest in the sophomore out of St. Raymonds High School For Boys.

2020 6’8 Henry Coleman | Team Loaded VA

I have seen Henry many times before but this weekend might have been the best I have seen him play. He has definitely taken the next level in his game and it certainly showed. He was second in scoring this weekend in the 16 and under group averaging 16 points per game. I am not sure that I saw a guy in this age group with a better motor than Coleman.

2020 6’2 Keshaun Hammonds | K-Low Elite

Keshaun finished 5th in scoring this past weekend in the 16 and under age group. He averaged 15 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. Keshaun showed that he can score in a variety of ways by either attacking the rim or hitting jumpers from different spots on the court. One thing that I really liked the most from Keshaun is how confident he is with the ball in his hands and his movement on the court.

2020 6’4 Taelon Martin | Mass Rivals

The stats might not show it as he only averaged 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists per game but many people were impressed with Taelon this past weekend on a talented Mass Rivals team. He is a smart lead guard that brings tons of athleticism to the court. I believe Martin will be a priority for different high majors programs as he gets older.
