Prep Hoops takes a look at some of the top 2019 Performers in Day 1 action from the Farm Bureau Insurance Tip-Off. Prep Hoops will breakdown several categories from the event in the days to follow.  


Cooper Fowler

Cooper Fowler – JL Mann HS (Greenville) (pictured on front) 

Fowler 6’11 has a great set of mitts. Fowler caught everything thrown to him today. Fowler showed a soft touch to the perimeter and even knocked down a few three pointers. Fowler has lost about 25 pounds since the summer playing with Upward Stars Upstate. Fowler finished the evening with 16 points in the win for the Patriots.


Fowler has offers from Southern Wesleyan University (SC) (NCAA D2) and Erskine (SC) (NCAA D2) he told Prep Hoops. VMI and USC-Upstate have also had contact with Fowler this fall. 


Desmond Tate

Desmond Tate – Chesnee HS 

Tate scored most of his points in the paint. Tate is a productive shooter and scorer for the Eagles. Tate got to the free throw plenty of times this evening (14-19) to be exact. Tate finished the game with 30 points. Tate didn’t extend much out to the perimeter and did most of his damage around the basket. Tate has interest from Anderson University (SC), North Greenville University (SC) and Erskine (SC) according to Eagles Head Coach Andy Pitt. 


Jack Renwick

Jack Renwick – Dorman HS (Roebuck) 

Renwick was a pleasant surprise this evening for the Cavaliers. Renwick finished the night with 18 points and 7 rebounds while connecting on 5 three pointers. Renwick won’t have to travel far next season for college since he will be playing baseball at Wofford. 


Tyrese Pilgrim – Dorman HS (Roebuck) 

Pilgrim is a bit of a late bloomer on this team. Pilgrim seems to bring instant energy and really competes when he touches the floor. Pilgrim is a solid student in the classroom. Pilgrim finished the game with 14 points including a 40 footer at the buzzer in the first half. 


Christian Anderson

Christian Anderson – Laurens HS 

Anderson 5’10 point guard was able to get the ball into the paint all night long for the Raiders. Anderson has the ability to create his own shot and make plays for his teammates. Anderson really feels comfortable with his mid-range jumper and utilized the cross-over a few times vs Woodruff HS.
