Year 3 of the Prep Hoops Top 250 took place in Florida on Sunday.

The 2018 showcase was held at Daytona Mainland High School where a record 220 prospects competed on the day. 12 college programs were on hand with 10 video companies came out for the day.

Here is a look at the second part of the top standouts list from the older group (2019-2020).

ICYMI: Part 1

Note: All players on the list were voted to the Top 40 All-Star Game.

Johnnie Williams (Booker)

In the early going shots weren’t falling for 2019 Booker guard Johnnie Williams. He played through it in the second and third games with big time dunks and drives to the hoop. Williams is athletic as they come at his 6’5″ frame and his jumper improved as the day went on. I expect his value to rise alongside yet another deep Booker squad this fall.

Malcolm Farrington (DME)

Back in Florida, it was great to see Malcolm Farrington dig in and play to his full potential on Sunday. The 6’3″ 2019 DME guard is strong, intelligent and very gifted when he has the basketball in his hands. Farrington has always been a playmaker and a reliable shooter. Now is his chance to show colleges that he can handle his own at the next level.

Michael Gavin (Lake Mary Prep)

Last season at Windermere Prep, 6’0″ guard Michael Gavin certainly mixed in but his biggest contributions came as a 3-point shooter. On Sunday, the now 2019 Lake Mary Prep guard proved that he can do a whole lot more than shoot from outside. Gavin was switching hands on layups, running the floor with ease and showing off his vision that set up his teammates often. He’s in for a breakout leadership role at his new school.

Jemal Davis (Okeechobee) 

One of the most talked about big men in the gym on the day was 2019 Okeechobee forward Jemal Davis. At 6’7″, the length is evident with him and he uses his body well weaving through inside, shooting over defenders on jumpers and more. Davis could stand out to gain some muscle to his upper body, but he has the looks of a double double machine during his senior campaign.

Elijah Howell (Wiregrass Ranch)

Coming off a standout junior season for Wiregrass Ranch, 2019 guard Elijah Howell displayed why he’s such a crafty scorer and shooter. Named to the Top 40 All-Star Team, Howell battled through an illness to prove that he belonged against some of the top talent. Howell never slows down when he gets the open space in transition and he can shoot in a split second.
