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 third part of the stock risers list from the older group (2019-2020).
Jalen White (Lakewood)
Being authoritative and strong at the point of attack has always been what Jalen White is all about. The 2019 6’5″ point guard is a big body who is super hard to slow down. He draws contact often and is willing to put his body on the line for the sake of scoring inside or on the line after earning a trip to the foul line. White will be leaned on a ton as a senior for an athletic Lakewood group.
Winston Dessesow (Admiral Farragut)
Shooting and hustling up and down the floor, all game long is what 2019 guard Winston Dessesow did on Sunday. Highly underrated, the 6’0″ guard has carried his Admiral Farragut time and time again with his advanced ballhandling, poise and outside jumper. I fully expect Dessesow to make a bigger name for himself in terms of his recruitment as a senior.
Noah Dubose (Booker)
Rocking the classic Nike headband, the undersized but lightning fast point man Noah Dubose made his presence felt. The 5’8″ Booker guard is highly intelligent, quick to the ball as a defender and he can get into the lane in the blink of an eye. A 2020 prospect, Dubose still has work to do as a shooter, but he is a sound ballhandler who can get it done as a passer and attacker.
Milos Merrick (IMG)
Back after playing well a year ago at our showcase, Milos Merrick did more of the same this time around. The 6’3″ IMG guard is a reliable stretch shooter who sees the floor well. When Merrick is locked in, he’s a steady point guard who plays an old school type of game. The 2020 prospect gets in his own head at times, but when focused, he’s extremely invested and smart with the ball.
Peyton Williams (Villages)
Being long and filled with energy has never been an issue for 6’7″ Villages forward Peyton Williams. The 2019 athlete is very coachable. He listens to criticism well. A natural wing, Williams has a nice wingspan and jumper that he falls back on. Williams can mix it up inside, but he’s best used as a shooter and a stand up shot blocker on defense.
