This summer is instrumental for basically every high school basketball prospect playing in live period events with their AAU teams.
A ton of 2020 players are making the leap already this summer and here are just a few in Part 2 of the “2020 Prospects On The Rise” list.
Michael Eads (Edgewater/Team Parsons)
Georgia Southern, Oklahoma State and FGCU have all offered 2020 6’5″ Edgewater guard Michael Eads this spring. A highly intelligent bigger framed point man, Eads can shoot the ball well, handle the rock and dish it out and lead the charge on the break. He continues to be steady for a deep and talented Team Parsons 17U group. Expect Eads to have another impressive showing in the July Live Period.
Devin Carter (Doral/Team Knight)
Six schools have offered 2020 6’3″ Doral guard Devin Carter since late April. The list includes Richmond, College of Charleston, Northern Arizona, FIU, FAU and VCU. Perhaps seen as a late bloomer, Carter was one of the best pure scorers this past season in the state of Florida and he has continued his hot play as the clear-cut No. 1 guy for Team Knight. Carter is going to have double digit Divison I offers before the summer is over in my opinion.
Kario Oquendo (Astronaut/Team Parsons)
At 6’6″, 2020 Astronaut guard Kario Oquendo is an athlete that seems to always make fans get out of their seats. Recent offers include TCU and USF for him. Oquendo is strong in both his lower and upper body and has serious jumping ability. His shooting ability continues to improve and he makes it look easy as an elusive and power attacker. Expect more Division I colleges to look at Oquendo this summer.
Alec Oglesby (The Rock/Team Knight)
A surefire 3-point shooter, 2020 6’5″ The Rock guard Alec Oglesby is commanding a lot of attention from Division I programs. Yale was the latest offer this spring and many schools are in contact and keeping tabs on him. Oglesby has a quick trigger on his jumper and he’s able to mix it up with his speed and smarts more often than not.
David Green (Ocoee/1 Family)
UNF, Georgia Southern, St. Bonaventure and Louisiana Tech represent the offers handed to 2020 6’7″ Ocoee forward David Green this spring. The lengthy wing/power player is a gifted outside touch shooter and a confident one at that. Green is able to get inside with his nice dribble drive moves as well. He has made a ton of progress from this past season to this point now and I expect him to continue getting better. Having that size and scoring ability is a good combination.
