Unknowns and Undervalued

Posted On: 09/29/18 10:01 PM

There were plenty of great athletes on hand at the Matt Reynolds League Final last weekend. Of the players I was able to watch, these were the best rebounders:

Jaquise Stuman 2019 Edmond Santa Fe (OKC Blue)

Jaquise Stuman has mass to him and is a strong guy. The 6-foot-3 post is not the tallest player on the floor or anything but plays hard and gives great effort to get rebounds. He is a workhorse on both ends of the court.

Jacob Thionnet 2019 Edmond Memorial (OKC Treyway)

Jacob Thionnet continues to boost his stock. His height, strength, and hustle are all components of his rebounding game. He is a big advantage for his team on the offensive end with his ability to get put backs on missed shot opportunities.

Eli Hollis 2019 El Reno (OKC Wolfpack)

Eli Hollis was one of the most valuable players at the Reynolds League final last weekend; part of the reason for this is his dominance in getting boards. The 6-foot-8 post has little trouble securing boards over other players.

Elijah Mason 2020 Edmond North (OKC Green)

Elijah Mason is a strong rebounder who can jump out of the gym. He is as explosive as any player on the floor and can reach above most other players.

Tayo Dina 2019 Bartlesville (Tulsa Chargers)

Tayo Dina battles well and judges long rebounds especially well. He is extremely coordinated and possesses great body control. He has a good reach, but is an exceptionally bouncy athlete as well. He will be a force to be reckoned with for rebounds in any matchup.
