Every year the talent level at the Expo events around the county gets bigger, but the 2021 group this year was special. Today our Top 250 Expo All Sophomore Team is named.
Top 250 Expo Sophomore All American First Team
Jonathan Kuminga of Georgia. Kuminga was the most talented player to attend an EXPO event anywhere in the country and as the Georgia event MVP, Kuminga made a very strong case to be the number one ranked player in the 2021 class nationally. Best of the Best.
Moussa Diabate of Florida. Prep Hoops Florida writer Jake Perper laid it out perfectly: “The No. 1 ranked 2021 Florida prospect Moussa Diabate played with the upperclassmen group, performed at a high level, digging in down low, using his long arms to grab boards and he hustled in transition all day long.”
Trey Alexander of Oklahoma. A big lead guard that Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are tumbling over each other for, Trey didn’t just score at the event, Matt Reynolds of Prep Hoops Oklahoma pointed out Trey’s rebounding, defense, and competitive fire every possession.
Brandon Weston of Illinois. Weston was the top prospect at the Illinois event and backed that up all day with big number scoring at all three levels. Prep Hoops veteran analyst Scott Burgess noted how well Weston moved the ball to his teammates off the bounce all day.
Emareyon McDonald of Louisiana. The MVP of the younger group of players in the Louisiana event, the four star top 100 national prospect has people arguing “top shooter in Louisiana” or “top shooter in the southeast”? McDonald was definitely one of the best shooters in the Expo events.
Top 250 Expo Sophomore All American Second Team
DJ Hughes of Indiana. CP from DJ. Constant Production from DJ Hughes. Outstanding frame on the wing with excellent hands and a physical finishing approach.
Elvin Edmonds IV of Virginia. Smooth sophomore guard who can excel at both guard positions, Elvin already has five D1 offers including VCU and he recently visited Virginia.
Seth Wilson of Ohio. Prep Hoops Ohio writer Anthony Garcia raved about how well Wilson managed pick and roll scenarios scoring in every way imaginable with the ball screen. Wilson was named top underclassmen prospect at the Ohio event.
Treyton Thompson of Minnesota. The underclassmen event MVP of the Minnesota event, Treyton continues to show the state one of the most amazing six month transitions I’ve ever seen. Six-foot-10 big that has a Texas Tech offer.
Kalen Etzler of Ohio. Etzler was the Ohio event MVP for the various things he did on both ends of the floor. Has offers from Duquesne and Bowling Green, just visited Ohio State last weekend. A name on the rise.
Top 250 Expo Sophomore All American Third Team
Isaiah Barnes of Illinois. After a standout summer with the Illinois Wolves and an excellent showing at the Expo, Barnes has moved into the Illinois rankings to top six in state.
Bryce McGowens of South Carolina. McGowens – recent offered by St. Johns (NY) wasn’t just an offensive weapon but really grabbed attention with his D
DaVeon Thomas of South Carolina. The fourth ranked 2021 talent in South Carolina has an infections smile and some of the top vision of any Expo 2021 talent.
Camden Easley of Florida. The Orlando big had a point to prove and he accomplished his task with a high motor, high energy, explosive four hours at the Expo.
Trey Shearer of Iowa. Trey wasn’t just a constant, aggressive playmaker at the Iowa event, he was also a similar type of player at the Minnesota event. Made the 2021/2022 game in Minnesota so a strong performance in TWO Expo events gets the nod over others.
