I was treated to the much-anticipated matchup between the DeSoto Eagles and Grand Prairie Gophers Friday night. DeSoto's trio of big men were impressive individually, but the team as a whole could not match the speed and athleticism of Grand Prairie. The one-loss Gophers took care of business at home. They controlled this contest from start to finish, defeating the Eagles 72-48. 

Here are seven intriguing prospects from the game:

Jaylin Posey - 2020 6'3 Shooting Guard (Texas Legions Elite) Grand Prairie HS - The SFA commit dominated his matchups vs. DeSoto. He plays much-bigger than his 6-foot-3-inch size would suggest. Posey has a tremendous back-to-the-basket game but also showed that he can hit pull-ups from mid-range. Furthermore, the senior guard is an explosive athlete, and that was on full display at the end of the first half when he absolutely posterized an opposing defender on his way to the basket with an emphatic one-handed dunk. He finished the night with 21 points. 

Donald Ghostone - 2020 6'7 Small Forward (Texas Legions Elite) Grand Prairie HS - Ghostone had an excellent shooting night on Friday. The senior sharpshooter accounted for 19 points and drilled four three pointers.
