Los Angeles City Section used to produce the best high school basketball talent in the entire SoCal area. Teams like Crenshaw and Manual Arts were regulars when it came to competing for city championships.

The high school basketball landscape has changed a lot since then. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t still some strong talent at some of these schools, talent that could certainly help a college team at any level. Many of these schools are in historically underrepresented and underfunded areas, and these players have less opportunity to be seen and evaluated by college coaches.

Here’s a quick look at some of those players who should be on some radars this season.

1. Rondell MooreRondellMoore6'1" | CGFremont | 2021State - Fremont 2021

Moore is a solid wing prospect who can score and facilitate. He’s got a solid off the dribble game; can shoot pull-up jumpers or get all the way to the rim. He’s a crafty and athletic finisher through contact and he’s got a little runner. Can hit the little step-back jumper too. He’s got good vision, especially in transition finding teammates filling the lane. Very unselfish player who can balance scoring and playmaking.

2. Kosy Akametu - King/Drew 2021
