This past weekend I was able to catch a total of 10 fall league games spread out across St. Paul Harding HS, Concordia St. Paul, and Hardwood Elite’s "The League" at Bloomington Kennedy. These are evaluations on seven class of 2024 and 2025 prospects that I was able to watch play!

Henry Buchanan (7’ 2024 C, Burnsville)- This was my first time getting to see the 2024 big man live, and the potential is obviously there at 7’ tall. Though he wasn’t putting up crazy numbers, Henry did work hard competing against two of the best 2023 bigs in the state. His balance is a bit better than you’d expect from a 7’ sophomore, and he used that to finish off a few looks with defenders swarming. He’ll have to work on his quickness so that he can get into better positions defensively, but the effort was there and he was working to get into positions to block multiple shots in both games I saw. He’s a left handed player and was effective turning over the right shoulder into a baby hook shot. As he gets a bit stronger and adapts more to his height, that left hand could become dangerous
