The Prep Circuit’s final live period event took place in Indianapolis this weekend and I was there to help cover the event. The Prep Hoops 2K21 had some of the top teams from across the country, and a lot of them were both shoe company and elite independent teams from across the midwest. Here’s a look at some of the standouts I saw from those teams.

Reed Sheppard Reed Sheppard 6'3" | PG North Laurel | 2023 State #67 Nation KY | 6’3” WG | Midwest Basketball Club ’23

Sheppard had crowds and college coaches following him all over the place this past weekend, as the 6’3” off guard out of Kentucky was one of the most prolific scorers while playing up in the 17U division. He’s a lights out shooter from deep with great confidence and deep range, but he also showed that he can put it on the deck and is a crafty scorer from multiple levels. He has a great feel both on and off the ball and a high IQ, and he has a killer mentality that means he can take over a game when he gets it going.
