Francisco’s Finest: Ryse Williams Pac Shores: (Scouting takes/Part 2)
REDONDO BEACH, CA—The 67th Annual Ryse Williams Pac Shores Tournament has come and gone with perrenial city power house Fairfax taking down CIFSS stalwart Bishop Montgomery in the championship game. UNLV-bound Ethan Anderson would take home MVP honors heading into the holidays while the Knights of Bishop Montgomery try to heal up with Oregon State-bound Gianni Hunt and Nick Schrader suffering nagging injuries.
Doctor Bradley (Gardena/Serra)
2019, WF, 6-foot-6, 175 pounds
Joel’s Take: This Cal State Fullerton signee has a bright future due to his explosive nature and prototypical Division 1 frame. His 1st step is quick and he can elevate with the best of them while finishing in the paint. Playing fundamental basketball—jump stop would be a nice start—will make him a more efficient player.
Frank Staine (Long Beach/St. Anthony)
2019, WF, 6-foot-6, 180 pounds
Joel’s Take: Although Staine has yet to sign with a college, his overall physical package should attract a plethora of lower division schools or perhaps junior college. He has long arms, good quickness, and he plays with a solid motor. However, he needs to improve his offensive skill set in the half court set and develop a more consistent jump shot.
Noel Scott (Washington Prep)
2019, SG, 6-foot-3, 185 pounds
Joel’s Take: Scott has the physical tools and competitive spirit to be a college player, but his skill set needs to improve. His jump shot comes and goes and his triple threat game is still raw. He has the length and explosiveness to finish over length as well as the moxie to be a lock-down defender, but his overall game needs to improve—specifically his jump shot.
David Elliott (Birmingham)
2021, SG, 6-foot, 155 pounds
Joel’s Take: One of the better up-and-coming sophomores in So Cal is Elliott. He has the length, ball skills, and scoring savvy to be a college player. He can create his own shot off the dribble, shoot it from deep (good lift), and he competes.
Vaughn Flowers (Rolling Hills Prep)
2020, WF/SG, 6-foot-3, 175 pounds
Joel’s Take: Flowers is a positionless perimeter prospect who is oozing with upside. He has the ideal frame with long arms and he is explosive in transition. He plays on balance and rarely forces the issue and he picks his spots to exhibit his quick 1st step and finishing ability. He can knock in the occasional jumpshot, but overall his ball skills against pressure and overall offensive repertoire needs to improve.
