Here is a look at the Class of 2021 forwards from the Prep Hoops Missouri Top 250 Expo. These two young men were late walk ups to the event, but they made quite an impressive on the court with their overall activity.
Aladji Gassama 6’10” DeSmet: The athletic big was easily the top defensive player in the event with his shot blocking. His athleticism, length and timing made it easy to get to shots without fouling. He also displayed some nice moves in the post and a few dribble moves from the high post for buckets. He runs the court like a gazelle and turned some of those rim-runs into slam dunks.
Shelton Flanagan 6’5″ Vashon: A long athletic forward who loves to rebound, rebound and rebound some move. His combination of bounce and a high motor enabled him to rebound well out of his area. He also had some impressive rim-runs. His offensive game is still a work in progress, but he did finish well around the basket.
