There was a lot of good players and college prospects in the WIBCA D1 recruiting showcase. Ranging from the class of 2020-2022, the talent level and potential was there for multiple players. As I was watching the games, I found myself trying to create a super starting five, including the best players from the event on a single team. If you polled 50 different people, you could come up with 50 different lineups, but here’s who I found the be the most talented and productive in each game.
WIBCA Super 5:
1: 2022 6’3 Milos Uzan (Desert Pines HS/NV)
2: 2020 6’5 SG Liam Lloyd (Gonzaga Prep HS/WA)
3: 2021 6’9 SF Ben Gregg (Clackamas HS/OR)
4: 2021 6’9 Jackson Grant (Olympia HS/WA)
5: 2021 6’9 Kaden Perry (Battle Ground HS/WA)
Milos Uzan was easily one of the most skilled guards in the event, despite being one of the youngest players in the gym. He is wiry strong and has good body control finishing around the basket. He has a good handle at 6’3 and may still grow another inch. Milson currently holds offers from UNLV and TCU among other schools. One high major head coach that was in attendance told me Milos was the sole reason he came and that says a lot about his ability. At the two guard, Liam Lloyd played with supreme confidence all weekend and would be in my starting five for the event. He was averaging nearly 30 points per game after day one mixing in some dunks and long bomb threes. Davidson’s coach flew in to see him play in one game and again that goes to show that he is a priority for some good college program. At the three, I would have none other than Ben Gregg. Although he played in only part of one game before going down with an injury, Ben was head and shoulders more skilled than any other player in the event. At 6’9, he was taking his man off the bounce, getting to the mid range and hitting contested threes. He is a bonafide high major prospect. At the four position I really like rising junior Jackson Grant. Jackson is unique based on the fact he can stretch the floor at 6’9. His best basketball is ahead of him, but his impact is still there right now with his length, shot blocking ability and solid offensive skill set. The clear cut winner at the five position would be super athlete Kaden Perry. The recent Gonzaga commit got injured after day one, but he showed plenty of glimpses of his athletic prowess and overall motor. There were other bigs in the event, but none with his energy, communication on the floor and impact on both ends of the floor.
Let us know who would be in your super 5!
