The PrepHoops Prospect Showcase took place in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Thursday at Bloomington Kennedy High School. It was a fun day of hoops with drills, instruction, and games. Here were the standout performers from the event. Stay locked on PrepHoops over the next few days for Illinois evaluations, national evaluations, interviews, and more!
SF Terence Anthony-Larmouth (Maple Grove, MN – 2021)
I came away extremely impressed with this wing from nearby Maple Grove. The lanky 6’5” forward has a nice frame and decent projectability. He proved to be a crisp shooter from mid-range and stretched it out a little beyond that at times. His turnaround game from 15 feet was his go to move. Finished well around the hoop through contact. Consistent showing in multiple games for the junior forward.
PG Latae’vyon Taylor (Simeon, IL – 2021)
Taylor made a name for himself with his performance on Thursday. He is a smaller point guard at only 5’11”, but the kid has jets. Pushes with athleticism in the open floor. Slick ball handler and creative passer in the open floor. Got to the rim on multiple occasions for acrobatic finishes.
PG Jackson Noll (Cuba City, WI – 2020)
Noll is a sniper from three with NBA range on his jump shot. The left handed point guard regularly drilled deep pull up threes. Also capable off the catch from beyond the three point arc. Showed he was more than just a shooter as the day went on as he put crisp combination moves together off the bounce and dished it nicely.
SG Samuel Fawcett (Sioux Falls Lincoln, SD – 2020)
Fawcett was one of the more exciting players to watch at the event. The Iowa native stands at 6’3” and guard showed excellent passing feel both in transition and the half court. Creative with the ball in his hands both scoring and dishing the rock. He can also knock down shots from the perimeter.
PF Morgan Culhane (St. Michael Albertville, MN – 2020)
This 6’7” face up four man first shined early in the day during drill work as he was draining shots all over the floor. That continued in the games as he was a face up threat shooting the ball. Passes well. Plays with a high activity level and finished dump off passes on a regular basis. Tough kid that fights on the glass.
SG Adam Strobel (Chanhassen, MN – 2021)
At 6’4” this wing has good size for the two guard spot. I really liked how he was aggressive slashing to the hoop throughout the day. Efficient scorer that when he took it to the basket most of the time it went down for two points. Decent passer and flashed as a shooter.
SF Corbin Froelich (Paynesville, MN – 2021)
Another solid wing at 6’4” that was always around the basketball. He got on the glass for put backs, ran the floor hard for easy points, and finished well inside on quick passes. Hit a three early on one of the games we saw.
SG Elijah Morris (Perham, MN – 2021)
At 6’1” this shooting guard was a high energy wing that consistently made plays throughout the day. Moves well without the ball. Capable three point shooter especially from the wings. Quick and precise moves off the bounce with not a lot of wasted movements. Made regular trips to the foul line.
SG Grant Rieker (West Des Moines, IA – 2020)
This 6’4” wing was LIGHTS OUT from three all day! He hit at least five in each of the games we saw on Thursday. Great shot preparation getting ready to let it fly from deep. Elite level shooter that will get looks at the college level because of that. Not too shabby as a distributor too!
PF Aaron McQueen (Lane Tech, IL – 2021)
McQueen shined once again as the 6’6” power forward from Illinois has made a name for himself with the Illinois Jaguars on the PrepHoops Circuit. Junk yard dog player that always seems to be around the basketball. Rebounds well in traffic. High points boards. Runs the floor for scores. High activity level!
PG Brandon Bryant (Brother Rice, IL – 2021)
Bryant is thin and wiry slick handling point guard that has speed end to end. Nice burst getting to the cup off the bounce. Always has his head up looking to make a play whether that is taking it himself to the rim or dishing to a teammate. So slippery with the ball in his hands.
PG Tommy Craven (St. Charles East, IL – 2021)
Craven is a crisp and high IQ guard from St. Charles East High School. He proved he was a high level passer especially in the drive and kick game finding his open shooters on the perimeter. Also took it inside for scores himself on a regular basis finishing difficult layups in traffic. Crafty point guard that also rebounds well for his position.
