Hopefully, we will be playing in 2024. Here are 4 players from schools who have had their share of high college talent. These incoming freshmen and Sophomore are high on their coach’s list to make an impact. They also possess the skill set to be highly recruited players when it’s time.
Ian Jackson. 6”5. FR (2024) CARDINAL HAYES HS
Coach Lods asked if I would be interested in his incoming freshman.? He’s had his share of really good players so when he told me ”this kid is special”. I listened. He is a star in the making. A super skill set. Can shoot it from outside. Has a midrange game that is helped by his ball-handling skill. He can get to the basket and finish through contact. He is 6”5. Ian has guard skills that will only help as he continues to grow. Will have to get acquainted with the physical chsaa game and will gain experience and confidence as he plays his first varsity season. I am very excited to watch this player come of age.
Eric Mejia. 6”3. FR (2024) CARDINAL HAYES HS
Another nice size for a freshman. Sees the floor really well. He is a bulldog. Can muscle himself to the rim. He’s strong and can finish. Working on developing consistency in his outside shooting to enhance his overall game. Which right now is still very good. Experience is the only thing lacking and that should come quickly.
Nas Simmons 6”1. FR (2024) CARDINAL HAYES HS
An excellent shooter with good range. Can get to the basket off the bounce. Really good handle. Has a D1 skillset at this young age. As he continues to get stronger he will become a force.
Aaron Goldstein. 5”10. SO (2023) XAVERIAN. HS
Aaron is a passionate player. He just loves the game. He also happens to be very good at it. Has unlimited range. With a high skillset. Can handle the ball and get off his own shot. Will work on improving his defense, but no doubt his offense is ready for the varsity level.
