Louisiana 2019 Commitments

Jahein Spencer 6’4 G/F Madison Prep UAB commit Spencer is a big bodied guard/forward tweener with a really high ceiling.

Louisiana 2021 Rankings: Top Wings

Delatrion Moton 6’4 Woodlawn-Shreve The thing that impresses me most about Moton’s game is simply his versatility. There isn’t much on the basketball court that he can’t do. He handles the ball really well, and looks to get other people involved when he is attacking down hill. On defense, he knows exactly how to use[…]
