Trinity Christian Cameron Oates: We like what Oates brings to the table and we feel as though he will only get better as time goes on and he gets more reps at the PG spot. Already strong for his age he doesn’t mind contact in the paint but can also shoot the ball very well from deep, he reminds us a lot of current Trinity Christian Guard KJ Marshall.  

Shaker Heights HS Guard Daniel Young: Has good ball handling skills and a quick first step, he does a nice job of recognizing when defenders are vulnerable at attacks at that moment. Up-tempo style of play seems to be where he is most efficient but he also showed the ability to play in the half court.

Cannon School Forward Derrick Nix: A player that doesn’t mind doing the dirty work, we saw him make a living by playing inside the paint. When shots went up, he found a body quickly and used his strength to secure rebounds quickly. We also liked how quickly he got his shot off in the paint, whether if it was a pass from a guard or an offensive rebound, he didn’t waste time or movements before scoring quickly.

Dematha Guard Tyrell Ward: You can play him on the wing, or slide him on over to the guard spot and allow him to do his damage from there. He showed the ability to score the ball as well as good passing , there were quite a few plays that he made that made you saw wow, nice height and length to go along with good skills gives him a chance to be special.

Crossing Christian Guard Reid Lovelace: Shooting is what drew our attention to him, he has a nice shooting form and doesn’t need much time to get his shot off. He moves well without the ball and does a nice job of continuing to move even when he gets looked off, once he gets hot, he is has potential to put up nice numbers.

Helen Davis Guard Amari Howell: One of the smaller players on the court as well as on his team but don’t let that fool you one bit. He plays the game with intensity and doesn’t allow himself to be a mismatch, his quick hands causes problems for defenders as he is what many would describe as a ‘‘pesky’’ defender.
