Grassroots Showcase coverage continues with a recap of the Florida prospects on display. Due to the timing of games, the only teams I was able to watch were Florida Pro and Team Florida who are both 17U programs. Florida Pro had a fantastic matchup with 3D Empire in the Gold bracket play which made the evaluations even more clear. Take a look at which Floridians impressed in Louisville.

Andrew Akuche (2022) Florida Pro 6-9 PF

Likely the best prospect on this list in terms of collegiate potential. Tremendous length as a perimeter player. Brings inside-out potential as he can post up strong or beat a guy off the bounce. Looking at him, he physically doesn’t have a ton of muscle on him but plays like he does in the post. Several HMs including Baylor and Gonzaga were on hand to watch this game against 3D Empire. No doubt Akuche is a HM/MM+ level prospect.

Terrance Ford Terrance Ford 6'0" | PG Victory Rock | 2022 State FL Jr. (2022) Team Florida 6-1 PG

Troublemaker regardless of whether he’s defending or you are preparing to defend him. Great perimeter defender with great quickness moving side-to-side on the ball. Active hands. Offensively his decision making and quick instincts are what I found most impressive
