I’ve always viewed the Fall Expo season as a little bit of the calm between storms. Between the Spring and Summer AAU periods and the regular prep season players have fewer but still precious opportunities to get noticed. Following are four players that stood out at the Prep Hoops 250 Expo in Grand Rapids.
  1. De’Ovion Price 6-1 2021 Port Huron  As has been duly noted on this site, there was a TON of speed at the 250 Expo. Unsurprisingly many of it came in the form of sub 6-foot guards. Price fit right in with this cadre but in a slightly bigger package. In addition to a vertical advantage, Price has a thick frame that allows him to avoid getting pushed out of position. Goes to rim aggressively and plays tenacious defense. Port Huron is not known as a hoops hotbed, but Price and some other young prospects could change that perception.
  2. Eli Beil 5-10 2021 Linden  A college coach once told me he looks for “carry” skills in prospects. Meaning a skill that will carry up to the next level. Beil has that skill. He is an exemplary passer, I first saw this in Fort Wayne
