Small colleges (DII, DIII, NAIA) need to identify and evaluate these prospects immediately.


Jack Thurman (Brentwood)

Travel Team: Ft. Campbell Snipers

Thurman might climb above this realm with wonderful passing and a nice swagger.


Joe Kesterson (Oak Ridge)

Travel Team: Tennessee Legends

Sharpshooter Keterson lacks the quickness for DI basketball, but his devotion to the game and shot-making ability make him a NAIA catch.  Made 8 triples in a January 30th win.


Roman Robinson (Bearden)

Travel Team: EOTO-TN

A true blur with the basketball, Robinson remains raw and very thin.  Good height.


Anthony Watkins (McCallie)

Travel Team: Chattanooga Elite Navy

Mid-range juggernaut, Watkins will see much more of the floor in his senior season at McCallie.


Darian Burns (Dickson County)

Travel Team: None.

Dual-sport athlete Darian Burns will tease both football and basketball recruiters with surprisingly mobility and easily apparent toughness.


Dustin Bunton (Cleveland)

Travel Team: Tennessee Tigers

Bunton has nice size at 6-foot-5, but lacks the extraordinary explosion of a DI player.  Will rebound, cut sharply.


Thomasi Gilgeous-Alexander (Hamilton Heights Christian Academy)

Travel Team: UPLay Canada

Younger brother of Shai Alexander (NBA draft prospect), Thomasi will be prepping a year before entering college with the 2019 class. Great height, unselfish.


Kohen Thompson (Tennessee Prep)

Travel Team: Memphis Bulls

Reclassed from Lausanne Collegiate, Kohen is a 6-foot-6 tweener in search of a go-to move.  Athletically he is already where he needs to be.


Tanner Shulman (McCallie)

Travel Team: PSB-Chattanooga

More than the catch-and-shoot shooter you expect him to be.  Tanner is heady and capable of creating his own mid-range shots.
