HYATTSVILLE, MD — Prep Hoops was back in the gym on Monday at the Capitol Hoops Summer League, where several players stood out. Here we unload our notebook from the day featuring evaluations on many of the uncommitted prospects we saw.
6’5 SF Joraei Bile | Oxon Hill | Class of 2020
Long limbed with broad shoulders. Mobile. Plays with a high motor. Versatile defensively. Has nice touch around the basket.
5’10 PG Chase Cook | DC Evolution | Class of 2021
Aggressive playmaker. Pesky defender on the perimeter. Consistently picks up full court and denies off the ball. Likes to push the tempo, get in the lane and create. Can shoot the 3.
6’0 PG Kamdyn Curfman | Georgetown Prep | Class of 2019
Skilled shooter with deep range. Can shoot off the dribble and from the catch. Plus ball handler. Solid on ball defender. Fundamentally sound. Communicates. Can create his own shot. Can create for others. Must show that he can consistently finish in traffic and through contact.
6’5 PF Marcus Gorham | Oxon Hill | Class of 2019
Strong and sturdily built forward with broad shoulders and long arms. Mobile. Plays with a high motor. Not a great decision maker.
6’0 PG Romaro Hutchinson | DC Evolution | Class of 2019
Good three point shooter from the catch. Has a quick release. Fills the lanes in transition. Plays hard. Communicates. Shot selection is a bit questionable at times.
6’0 PG Ethan Jones | Flint Hill | Class of 2019
Hard nosed lead guard with a great deal of toughness. Defends 94 feet. Gets others involved, but also has the ability to create his own shot. Still improving as a perimeter shooter.
6’8 PF Dowar Jioklow | Flint Hill | Class of 2019
Long-limbed and mobile forward who can stretch the floor consistently from mid range. Motor has improved significantly. Makes himself available for dump offs, and has good hands. Has nice touch around the basket with either hand. Can make hook shots with either hand. Blocks shots.
6’1 PG Kalonji Parker | Oxon Hill | Class of 2019
Crafty lead guard with a quick first step. Excellent passer. Unselfish.
6’2 PG Ronald Polite | Oxon Hill | Class of 2020
Long lanky playmaker. Plays with good pace. Sees the floor. Delivers accurate and timely passes. Plus defender. Active and alert on defense. Anticipates passing lanes well. Slasher. Seeks contact on drives. Can finish with either hand. Still developing a consistent perimeter jump shot.
6’5 SG Dimingus Stevens | DC Evolution | Class of 2020
Looks much more active on defense than ever. Creating deflections and working hard to disrupt passing lanes.
6’5 SF Christian Turner | Flint Hill | Class of 2019
High energy glue guy who plays an aggressive brand of basketball. Good athlete. Strong. Seeks contact. Not a shooter.
6’0 PG Josh Wallace | DeMatha | Class of 2019
Pacey floor general with some explosiveness. Excellent on ball defender. Fills the lanes. Good finisher in traffic. Can make threes consistently from the catch. Good paint getter who creates for others.
6’0 PG Jahmir Young | DeMatha | Class of 2019
Skilled lefty who plays much bigger than his listed height. Much improved as an on ball defender. Stays active and alert off the ball defensively. Reads the game and reacts quickly. Plays unselfishly. Demonstrates toughness.
