At the Elite 14 Showcase we had a lot of star-studded talent show up, but here we’ll take a look at the guys who did the little things that caught the attention of the Prep Hoops Staff. Because most of their actions are not awarded on the stat sheet, they will be recognized here.
Jaylen Rainey 6’3 Forward 2019 (Putnam City West) – Whenever he was in the game he made his presence known. Rainey was all over the floor Saturday, providing everything the Panthers needed whether that be a hard screen, running the floor on the fast break, or grabbing offensive rebounds.
Hunter Hoggatt 6’4 Guard 2020 (Sapulpa) – He’s versatile he can knock down outside shots but he can also get in the lane and win battles. He has good handle, and plays solid defense. He good at using his length to his advantage.
Ben Emmert 6’5 Forward 2020 (Norman) – He was making the effort plays for Norman and it really held their offense together. He did a mix of everything, really leaving his mark on the game. On Saturday, Emmert consistently was battling down-low for rebounds and making good passes.
Malachi White 6’3 Forward 2019 (Putnam City North) – Has a very high motor. He was playing harder than anybody on the floor. On Saturday, he was doing everything for North as he was rebounding, defending, and scoring in transition.
Aiden Walker 6’2 Guard 2021 (Norman North) – Does all of the dirty work, good wing defender who plays the power forward position at times. On offense he is always in the right spot and gets hustle baskets. He was a big x-factor for the Timberwolves.
Justin Williams 6’6 Forward 2019 (Millwood) – He is a high energy guy. Williams is very verbal as he fired up the team during pre-game on Saturday. He’s used that energy to fight his way to the rim and to battle for rebounds.
