PrepHoops Texas presents ten trending up prospects that college coaches need to check out this weekend during the live period. Here are the ten prospects below:
Sadaidriene Hall / 6’5” / Forward / Dallas Showtyme Elite / 2020
Hall has been playing outstanding basketball these past couple of weeks for Dallas Showtyme Elite. He possesses a high motor, rebounds at a high level, and makes plays that help his team win games. “Day Day” has a chance to jump on a lot of low major and division two coaches’ radars if he continues his consistent play.
Josh Farmer / 6’8” / Houston Superstars / 2021
Farmer is a kid that before his high school season began, many recruiting analysts believed that his recruitment was going to blow up. However, after somewhat of an underachieving high school season, the top ten prospect in the state’s recruitment stood still. Farmer is now looking to show everyone why he is billed a high major caliber prospect. The Houston native has shown some glimpses of his freaky athletic ability and solid face-up game for a player of his size.
Noah Robledo / 6’5”/ Forward / Nike JL3 Elite (EYBL) / 2021
I must say that prior to a couple of weeks ago I wasn’t that familiar with Noah Robledo, but thanks to my coworker Brandon Jenkins, I am now woke on the two way player from Central Texas. Robledo has a pure looking stroke from the perimeter and plays the game with maximum effort on both ends of the floor. Coaches that need a wing that can knock down shots, rebound, and defend, better get on this kid now.
Andrew Laczkowski / 6’6” / Wing / YGC36 / 2020
Laczkowski has shot the ball really well these past few months. The forward out of Dallas, Texas is a long wing that can stroke it from multiple areas on the floor and makes good decisions in the half court. Laczkowski is a student-athlete who takes care of his business off the court. Expect for this young man to earn multiple offers this spring and summer.
C.J. Kelley / 6’7” / Forward / LSE Mustangs / 2020
I discovered C.J. Kelley a couple of months ago at a high school district game versus a talented Sulphur Springs team who had multiple division one prospects. After watching that game, I knew Kelley had promise and potential to be a division one prospect. Kelley currently has one lone offer from Louisiana Tech, but I think that will change soon after the next couple of weeks.
Baylor Hebb / 6’2” / Guard / 3D Empire / 2020
Hebb is one of the best scoring guards in his class. The “babyface assassin” can score it with or without the ball in his hands. Hebb has been putting on some impressive scoring exhibitions during these past couples of weeks and multiple college coaches are beginning to show strong interest in the two-guard from Colleyville Heritage.
Zhuric Phelps / 6’3” / Guard / Texas Impact 4:13 / 2021
Phelps has been one of the most unknown kids in the state coming into this grassroots season. He is a guard that can play the one or the two and has the tools to get shots for himself and for others. We don’t currently have Phelps ranked due to the fact that we had never seen him before AAU season began, but in our next update expect to see his name at a good spot on that 2021 list.
Montreal Pena / 6’10” / Center / Proskills / 2020
Pena has the kind of gifts and potential that makes a college coach salivate when thinking about what he can become. Pena is still trying to fine tune little things on and off the court but the hybrid forward has shown progression and our staff believes that he is on the verge of having a breakthrough grassroots season.
Donald Ghostone / 6’6”/ Wing / Texas Legion Elite / 2020
Ghostone is a wing that can stretch the floor and really shoot it off the catch. Ghostone’s recruitment has been quiet, but I believe that with his size for position and shooting ability his phone should be ringing a lot during these next few weeks.
Malik Henry / 6’8” / Forward / Drive Nation EYBL / 2020
Henry is an East Texas product that is under the radar. The power forward has strong athleticism and good shot blocking ability. College coaches that need an active big that can rebound, block shots, and finish above the rim need to recruit this kid.
