Every year the Colorado Chaos holds an event where top prospects are able to put their talent on display for college coaches, the Rocky Mountain Fall Showcase. Some of the best underclassmen as well as Seniors play in a game for bragging rights and to showcase that they have. Here are the top players from the 2020 class.
Trevon Deden- Overland
Trevon has made some major improvements to his game over the summer as he’s turned himself into a defensive match up nightmare. He is a very skilled offensive player and that was on full display on Saturday as he scored a big 27 points. He really showed that he could shoot it from deep and when he gets going, he gets going. There was a point in the game that he knocked down five straight 3’s giving him seven total for the game. He was able to team up with Overland backcourt mate Hezekiah Swanson and they were in sync as if it were the middle of the season. This is a player that will be able to have a green light this year so it will be excited to see him get going.
Graham Ike- Overland
Coming off a huge summer where he dominated on the Summer Circuit as he took plenty by surprise was Ike and he kept that up at the showcase. He proved this past weekend that he is a force to be reckoned with. Graham has the capabilities to be a double-double player this year with all of the moves he has in the low post. He’s a big man that can get it done from both sides which creates problems for opposing big men trying to figure him out. Due to injury last season we didn’t get to see him play much but we will get a big dose of him this year and he should be a name to know throughout the entire season.
Cameron Le Van-Legend
He’s small but he is probably the most consistent player I’ve seen play in awhile. Cameron is one those players that is going to give 100% while he is on the floor and have a huge impact in doing so. On offense, he puts pressure on the defense by always attacking and making the right basketball plays. Also hitting the occasional clutch 3’s to give his team the momentum back. As for defense he’s a pesky player that gets into the offensive players head to force turnovers. He’s a player that can be amongst the top come senior year.
Sebastian Cole- Cherry Creek
Sebastian is in for a break out year this season for sure. Last season was just a taste of the type of player he was as he was intense in league play and he looks ready to get his team back to the top. He had a few things to work on and it looks as if he’s taken it serious as his game looks more polished than last yearas offensively it seems as if he can score whenever he wants. During the game he displayed his atlehicism on both ends for the floor. On defensive his highlight play was a block on one of the biggest players in the state in Graham Ike as he soared for the defensive stop and on offense with a easy two hand dunk in transition. Sebastian is the real deal.
Kaleb Chaney is one of many underrated guards we have in this stacked 2020 class. He remains solid on both ends of the floor and is an above average on ball defender. On defense he isn’t a player that gets scored on easily and is oft-present on help side defense. On offense he is proving to be a consistent knock down shooter that is always in the right spots on the floor for open looks. He has made strides in his game, an example is how he has takien over the point guard duties and ran the show and will be a gem off the bench for Overland this upcoming season.
Sam Schliep- Brighton
Sam is a marksman from beyond and is continuing to build on that heading into his junior season. When players like Sam play in games such as a showcase it seems unfair for those who are tasked with chasing them around all game. He constantly is moving around setting screens and using his court awareness to get open looks and his teammates are finding him. Opposing teams in the conference have been trying to figure out a way to limit his impact for two years and it doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon. Shooters shoot.
Reece Johnson- Resurrection Christian
He just may be our states best kept scoring machine. Reece puts the ball in the basket at a very high rate which seems to catch teams off guard. With him going to school so far out and not much exposure to inner city schools, many don’t get the chance to actually see him play. This causes doubt and makes those doubters wonder if he is able to play at a high level with the level of competition also being strong, well he has put those doubters to rest with the way that he played over the summer on a loaded Hawks team. He played well and showcased that he is a top player no matter the circumstances.
Trevor Baskin- Pomona
Trevor is one of the more talented guys in this class with a playing style that goes unnoticed as his numbers don’t tell the full story on his impact. At 6’5 he can handle the ball on the wing and create for himself as well as others. With such a skill set in the paint, there are matchup problems as his footwork allows him to get by the bigger defenders but he is too big for the guards. Both of which create easy baskets. He is a top notch playmaker and with the jump in minutes he will receive this year at Pomona he is looking like a double-double type of player that can make some noise.
