The 2023 class saw another commitment recently ascommitted to Kentucky, joining Camden teammate in the Wildcats’ recruiting class. The class is still filled with talented players who can make an impact at the next level, especially in Group 2. Here are the top available 2023 Group 2 prospects.
, 6’8 SF Camden
Haskins is the top-rated available prospect in Group 2, and he should have a strong senior season for the High. The 6’8 lefty has a smooth release on his jumper and can get hot from distance in a hurry. Haskins is more than just a shooter as he can also put the ball on the floor and finish around the basket. He is a solid rebounder and has the length to defend multiple positions on the floor. Haskins’ combination of shooting touch, length, athleticism and skill makes him one of the most intriguing available prospects in the 2023 class.
, 6’0 PG Arts
Nix returns to run the Jaguars’ offense, where they should be one of the top teams in Essex County. The 6’0 guard has a tight handle, which he uses to blow by his defender and can finish in a variety of ways around the basket. Nix knows how to get to his spot on the floor as he rarely plays out of control and gets his teammates involved in the halfcourt. He has a good shooting stroke and is capable of getting deflections on the defensive end. Nix is a crafty floor general whose ability to facilitate the offense effectively will help his stock in a big way this season.
, 6’5 SG Rutherford
Bicic is an intriguing prospect to watch as he impacts the game in a variety of ways. The 6’5 guard is comfortable running the offense as he uses his size to scan the defense and find open teammates within the flow of the offense. Bicic can beat his defender off the bounce and finish around the rim, but also knock down open jumpers on the perimeter. He is a strong rebounder and uses his athleticism to make plays on the defensive end. Bicic had one triple-double in the 2022-23 season and should have many more this season as he is the main guy in Rutherford’s offense this season.
, 6’7 PF Bound Brook
Summers had a monster summer with the NJ Panthers, which should carry over into the winter for the Crusaders. The 6’7 forward has a good face-up game as he can put the ball on the floor to get to the basket, but also step outside and knock down jumpers from behind the arc. Summers knows how to get position down low and has a nice touch around the basket. He rips down rebounds on both ends of the floor and is an underrated shot-blocker. Summers is a double-double machine who should eclipse the 1,000-point mark for Bound Brook in his senior season.
, 5’11 PG Roselle
Fuller is set for a breakout season for the Rams as they look to make some noise in Group 2. The 5’11 guard has a quick release on his jumper and is capable of shooting either off the catch or bounce. Fuller is more than just a shooter as he has a good handle and can finish around the rim. He is an underrated passer and uses his quick hands to get deflections and steals on defense. Fuller is a speedy lead guard prospect who should put up big numbers this season for Roselle.
