The 4th annual Florida Prep Hoops Top 250 was a massive success.
202 high school prospects (2020-2023) competed at a high level at Daytona Mainland where 20 plus college coaches, 15 plus media companies and a plethora of parents and family taking in the action.
We will have coverage all week long about the event.
Here is a look at the second part of the top upperclassmen standouts from the 2020 and 2021 classes.
ICYMI: Part 1
James Lee Repass (Providence)
Seeing big men go to work in the post is awesome to watch at showcases. 2021 6’10” Providence forward James Lee Repass was simply overpowering defenders in the post with his brute strength and attacks. An underrated touch shooter, he is growing in confidence as a mid-range player, but he knows he can score in bunches down low. Lee Repass was consistent all day long.
Matthew Lentz (Durant)
One of the best risers in the 2021 class has to be 6’6″ Durant guard/forward Matthew Lentz. He was beyond active on the day, drilling 3’s from the top of the key, getting into the paint and finishing with dunks and lay-ins. He has a smoothness about his game and knows his true capabilities. Lentz gets it and is in for a breakout junior campaign for a young Tampa Durant program.
Malcolm Kelly (Okeechobee)
A true floor general, there is no doubt that 2020 5’11” Okeechobee guard Malcolm Kelly turned some heads on Sunday. He was routinely telling his teammates tips and tricks to get open and make plays. Kelly is a downhill attacker and one that can take over games in a flash. He knows he isn’t the biggest player, but he makes defenses pay for taking him for granted.
Jameon “JJ” Harris (West Oaks)
Unselfishness is a great trait in basketball, especially when you can distribute the rock like 2021 6’3″ West Oaks guard Jameon “JJ” Harris. He has all the tools to get into the post and score with his length and weaving ability, but Harris gets everyone going first and it increases his value as a guard. Harris is part of a deep group of athletes at West Oaks and will stand out more often than not.
David Perez-Miralles (Riviera Prep)
A superb student of the game, 2020 6’2″ Riviera Prep guard David Perez-Miralles was hard to slow down. He surprised many players in attendance with his ability to get up and finish with two hands as a dunker. Most impressively, Perez-Miralles is just solid all-around. He makes the right play almost always in transition and he has a nice shooting touch. Moving from NSU University School to Riviera Prep, he will be the guy once again at the school he suited up for as a sophomore.
