Chris Simmons (ETRTW Jackson Cougars/Provine HS- 2023) Chris Simmons out of Jackson, Mississippi played well on day 2 for a Cougars team that plays hard collectively. Simmons played as the big for his team and did a good job of protecting the rim. He’s an ambitious shot blocker and got a piece of his fair share of shot attempts. Offensively, Simmons displayed versatility- being able to straight-line drive & finish at the rim as a slasher or by receiving dump-off passes at the dunker spot. In transition, Simmons had a nice right to left euro step finish to avoid a charge.
Odis Carter Jr. (Drive Nation Houston Black 2024/C.E. King HS- 2024) Odis Carter Jr. did most of the shot-creating for the Drive Nation Houston squad on Sunday. Carter Jr. has the ability to use angles to get to the rim and finish with either hand. He showed glimpses of being able to have a change of pace & snake out of drop PNR coverage. He has the look of a point guard that will be a starter on the high school varsity level at some point. If Carter Jr. can continue to grow physically and his skill set, he’ll be a guard to keep an eye on.
Gur Dhillon Gur Dhillon 6'6" | PF Leadership Prep School | 2024 TX (Team United 2024/Leadership Prep HS- 2024) Gur Dhillon Gur Dhillon 6'6" | PF Leadership Prep School | 2024 TX is a skilled 15U big. He’s patient with his back to the basket and has soft touch around the rim with good footwork. Dhillon can finish through contact & is confident in handling the ball if need be. From a play style standpoint, he plays similar to Drew Timme from Gonzaga. Dhillon also plays with energy and you can tell he loves to play the game. If Dhillon gets a consistent three-point shot and is able to grow more, it’ll make him that much harder to guard.
Trey’Dez Green (LA Broncos/East Feliciana HS: Jackson, LA- 2024) The best 15U player from this past weekend was Trey’Dez Green. Green is a versatile forward that dominated his final matchup at Space City Collision. Defensively, Green was an active & disciplined shot contester at the rim. He’s a strong, active rebounder on both ends and was able to power thru players at the rim with his strong frame. Green is a lob threat and can finish above the rim in the half-court or in transition- with or without space. On the block, Green has good footwork and has the ability to face up. He can spin fluidly if he puts the ball on the floor and gets overplayed. On the perimeter, Green had an impressive left to right crossover to get to the rim and finish above it. He also looks to have a smooth lefty jumper from deep if given space. Green is in good shape and was excellent at running the floor the entire game. He also has good hands- catching everything. Green looks to be a prospect that will get looks from the next level in the next few years if he can continue to progress.
