Prep Hoops Missouri was in attendance at Parkway North on Sunday afternoon for the final day of the IAABO Fall League. Here is a look at the top five players from Sunday’s action:
Jim King 6’6″ Troy:
The athletic 2019 forward was a force throughout the day with his combination of inside moves and explosiveness around the basket. He showcased good footwork around the basket and he could score with either hand with a variety of turnaround jumpers and jump hooks. He can also step out and knock down an open 3-pointer. He was also a strong finisher with a number of slam dunks on the day. He is getting attention from Division II schools.
Tayari Goodwin 5’10” Parkway North
A quick 2019 point guard who has the capability to get buckets at all three levels. He can iso off the dribble and get to the rim for layups and floaters, but he is also a knockdown shooter from 3-point range. He will push the ball in transition to look for easy opportunities to score while also looking to find open teammates. He is primed for a big senior year for the Vikings.
Adam Sommer 6’3″ Parkway South
A strong 2020 combo guard who is very comfortable playing with the ball in his hands or off the ball as a shooting guard. He has good size and strength and the ability to play through contact off the dribble. He has good court vision as a passer and has the ability to knock down jumpers from the mid-range or from 3-point territory.
Sofara Rasas 6’3″ St. Mary’s
A long athletic 2020 wing player who is poised to take over as one of the top players at St. Mary’s after the graduation of a talented senior class and while standout point guard rehabs from off-season shoulder surgery. He is a slashing wing who can really score getting to the basket, especially in transition. He also improved his perimeter shooting over the summer, making him a viable weapon from distance.
Zac Bonney 6’2″ Fort Zumwalt East
An impressive looking 2019 combo guard who plays the game with a lot of confidence and court savvy. He had the play of the day when he blocked a layup attempt and corralled the rebound and drove the length of the court and scored on a reverse layup over two defenders. He handles the ball well and can knock down shots from 3-point range. He also does a good job of getting the ball to open teammates.
Brandon Mitchell 6’4″ MICDS
A very talented Class of 2022 guard who has the size, versatile skill set and a high basketball IQ to be a varsity impact player right away. He is a good ball handler who is very comfortable in the facilitator role, but he also has the ability to get buckets at three levels. He made a number of open 3-pointers, but he can also take the ball off the board and go coast to coast to the rim. His upside is quite substantial.
