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.
