Today Prep Hoops is proud to announce our first ever Prep Hoops All Americans at the 17u level. The best of the circuit from coast to coast!
The Prep Hoops Circuit All Americans are similar to the All Region teams in that players had to be on qualified Prep Hoops Circuit teams participating on the circuit in multiple locations. Here is the best from the Prep Hoops Circuit, from Florida to California, and from Texas up to Wisconsin.
The Prep Hoops Circuit All American First Team
Dionte Blanch of Team Speights (6’3 PG from Tarpon Springs, FL, 2020). Blanch was recently ranked in the 2020 top 250 nationally after a standout summer with Team Speights. Blanch led his team to a 17-3 PH Circuit record while accumulating offers from Florida Gulf Coast, Louisiana Tech, College of Charleston and a long list of others. Blanch has committed to Murray State.
Sam Godwin of Team Buddy Buckets (6’8 PF from Moore, OK, 2020). Team Buddy Buckets went 22-6 on the PH Circuit finishing the season as the Grind Region runner-up. Godwin had a plethora of D2 scholarship offers to choose from until he stepped up his play in July earning D1 opportunity. Godwin’s latest offer is from North Texas.
Osasere Ighodaro of Powerhouse Hoops (6’9 PF from Phoenix, AZ, 2020). Ighodaro played his way into the national top 100 earning four stars next to his name as a 2020 prospect. Osasere earned double figure scholarship offers at the high major level in the past eight months before recently putting together a final four that includes Texas, Vanderbilt, Stanford and Marquette.
Matthew Mors of South Dakota Attack (6’7 SF from Yankton, SD, 2021). Matthew Mors was putting up double figure numbers in South Dakota three years before he was able to drive a car. Multiple different scoring records and a state title already to his name Mors continues to earn high major offers and interest. Matthew is the 36th ranked player nationally in the 2021 class.
Max Murrell of Team Factory (6’9 PF from Omaha, NE, 2020). When it comes to a recruit going from little attention to all the attention, the story of Max Murrell has hit legendary status. Max played in the first Hard Work Region event back in April with one scholarship offer (UMKC). Four months later he can pick his major conference school plus he’s the 94th ranked player in the 2020 class.
The Prep Hoops Circuit All American Second Team
Nick Bowden of LA Elite (5’11 PG from Playa del Rey, CA, 2020). Bowden averaged 30 points a game in the Hustle Region Finals in late July. Nobody could match that production while also playing on a winning team and creating for others.
Fallou Cisse of California Select (6’8 PF from Escondidi, CA, 2021). As one of the most improved players in the nation, Fallou took major steps forward playing for former NBA center Chris Dudley and California Select.
Day Day Hall of Dallas Showtyme (6’5 SF from Sulphur Springs, TX, 2020). Hall is a top 40 senior in the state of Texas and rising. Hall led Showtyme to a 15-2 record on the Prep Hoops Circuit as their most productive player.
Owen Koonce of Colorado Titans (6’5 SF from Lafayette, CO, 2020). The Colorado Titans had a Prep Hoops Circuit 17U record best 15-1 record and earned the title “Mr. Clutch” for his game by game production. What Koonce did to put games away at the Bash in the Desert is PH Circuit Hall of Fame worthy.
Brandin Podziemski of Wisconsin RAP. (6’4 SG from Delafield, WI, 2021). Brandin played his way into the top ten rankings of Wisconsin’s 2021 class this spring and summer by being the most consistent producer on the 17U Hard Work Region champions. Excellent 2019 so far for Brandin who was also named a first team all state high school player as a sophomore in Wisconsin.
The Prep Hoops Circuit All American Third Team
Daniel Abreu of Missouri Flight (6’6 SF from Willard, MO, 2020). Daniel is a top 15 senior in the state of Missouri that guided the Flight to an 11-3 Circuit record.
Johnny Davis of Wisconsin Playground Warriors (6’4 SG from La Crosse, WI, 2020). Davis was the most explosive 17u player on the Prep Hoops Circuit. He’s ranked 79th in the nation and committed to Wisconsin.
Jayden Johnson of Fundamental U (6’6 SG from Batavia, IL, 2020). Johnson pushed Fundamental U to a pair of Hard Work Region title games. He is ranked 246th overall in the 2020 class.
Charles Katona of Minnesota Fury (6’6 SF from Shakopee, MN, 2020). The Fury put together a 38-5 record this year with Charles Katona as the most consistent producer. Katona recently committed to Minnesota-Duluth.
Ricky Lujan of New Mexico D1 Ambassadors (6’2 PG from Las Cruces, NM, 2020). Ricky Lujan represented his homestate in a big way. Many on the PH Circuit respect New Mexico basketball after watching Lujan lead his team to a 13-3 record.
