Here is part 4 of looking at New players added by prep hoops staff to the rankings. 

Oscar Edelman Oscar Edelman 6'9" | PF Green Farms Academy | 2023 State , Greens Farms Academy, Position PF, HT 6’9, AAU Rene United

Oscar is a player with division 1 college level potential. He has an offer from division 1 school Manhattan, and high level division three college Yeshiva University. Oscar played in the Maccabi game. Oscar is a big built. He can finish well at the rim, and draws a lot of fouls. He is a very good outside shooter, and his combination of strength, skills and athleticism make him a good college prospect.

Kyle Bovell Kyle Bovell 6'3" | SF Beaver | 2023 State , Beaver, Position G, HT 6’3, AAU BABC

Kyle is a high level athlete. One of the better athletes I have seen in New England. He has a very high vertical and can throw down highlight dunks. He likes to play above the rim, and is great in transition, and in the open floor. He has also really improved his shooting. He plays bigger than he is listed at 6’3, and can guard players taller than him on defense. Kyle has the potential to play at the division 1 college level.

Will Groot Will Groot 6'9" | C Hotchkiss School | 2023 State , Hotchkiss, position C, HT 6’9, AAU Riverside Hawks Will is a traditional center, with the ability to also hit mid range jumpers. He has good touch around the rim, and good footwork in the post. He scores a bunch of points with his drop step move. He has built up his frame, and added strength. Will is one of the more underrated prospects in New England because true centers often get overlooked in today’s game of basketball. Itai Alinsky Itai Alinsky 6'6" | PF ST Andrews | 2023 State , ST Andrews, position PF, HT 6’6, AAU Team New England Itai Alinsky Itai Alinsky 6'6" | PF ST Andrews | 2023 State has recently reclassified to the class of 2023. He is coming off a standout season at Newton South, and should do very well in the NEPSAC. He had many notable stat lines this past season. Some included games of 24 points and 12 rebounds, and 27 points and 16 rebounds. Itai moved three years ago from Israel. He has a versatile skill set, to go along with his size and strength. Perfect skill set for today’s basketball. He will make for a very good prospect at the next level. I think Itai has the potential to play at the division 1 college level. Last season he averaged a double double. Itai is an excellent rebounder, and he has the ability to be a slasher, shoot the three, and play down low. Itai handles the ball really well for his size, and can run the floor. Itai has a ton of potential and upside to his game. Ryan Mela Ryan Mela 6'5" | PF Natick | 2023 State , Natick, Position PF, HT 6’5, AAU middlesex Magic Ryan has been impressing me every time I see him play. He has an excellent skill set, especially for today’s basketball. He is very versatile, and handles the ball very well for his size. He can throw down highlight dunks, and is great in transition. He has a very good touch around the rim. Ryan is a strong built, and a double double machine. He is also very good on the pick and roll. Ryan has the skills for the division 1 college level. He is a double double machine, and had many notable stat lines this year. Some included games of 28 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks, and 17 points and 10 rebounds. Ryan was unanimously voted Bay State league all star this past season.
