The final rankings for Washington’s 2019 class have been released here. The big question is who deserves to be number one and why?

As is the case every year, some high quality seniors remain unsigned for the next level! There’s usually a multitude of reasons as to why a good player may be unsigned, but there is still opportunity nonetheless.

College Commitment: Kenny Curtis (2019 Rainier Beach HS)

When it comes down to it in recruiting, it’s about fit and where you are wanted. Kenny Curtis certainly felt that in the process. The quick 5-foot-8, 145-pound point guard from Rainier Beach had been hearing from schools at a number of levels but there was one program that made a commitment to him early.[…]

2019 Division 2 signees in Washington

Washington currently has 7 players that will be moving on to the Division 2 level for basketball. This year’s group of D2 recruits is very unique with the fact that multiple players that truly could have gone Division 1 if they waited to sign in the spring, signed D2 in the Fall.

How many Division 1 signees for 2019?

One of the biggest topics in Washington is “How many kids will go D1 this year?” First and foremost, it’s important to understand that scholarship money to many D2’s and NAIA’s is the exact same. Free school, plus more. That being said, it is always exciting for fans to talk about how many will move[…]

Prospect Spotlight: Tyson Degenhart (2021)

Before the start of the high school season I listed some of Washington’s top Sleepers in the class of 2021. 6’7 Small Forward Tyson Degenhart was highlighted in that article. Mt. Spokane’s sophomore had high expectations of himself coming into the season, but even he did not foresee just how good of a season was ahead of him[…]

College Commitment: Haime Roberts (2019 Clover Park HS)

The hard work has paid off for Haime Roberts. The 5-foot-9, 155-pound point guard came into his senior season looking for an increased role and he was able to get that with Clover Park High School, becoming a team captain. Now after putting together a good year Roberts is moving on to the next level.[…]

College Commitment: Noah Williams (2019 O’Dea HS)

The truth of the matter is, Buffalo was nowhere in the picture last spring and summer while Noah Williams was playing with Rotary on the EYBL circuit. Heck, the Bulls didn’t even start recruiting the athletic 6-foot-4 guard from O’Dea High School until late in the season – in fact, it started on senior night.[…]

College Commitment: Steele Venters (2019 Ellensburg HS)

For Steele Venters, he really had to boil things down. The versatile 6-foot-7, 175-pound senior guard from Ellensburg had some excellent college options at the Division II level and he was seriously considering them. But when it all came down to it, Venters wanted to play at college basketball’s highest division. So earlier this month[…]

State Tournament All-Defensive Team

The WIAA does not have an official state tournament All-Defensive team. Most newspaper publications and media focus solely on points scored and scoring averages in their articles and voting for the All-State teams. While scoring and putting up numbers is a big part of the game, so is defense. Below is the unofficial Prep Hoops[…]

State Tournament Stock Risers

The 2019 WIAA Hardwood Classic is complete and I came away especially impressed with some players’ showing in the Tacoma Dome. All of these players were already on our radar, but they came ready to play on the biggest stage Washington high school basketball can provide. Some players rise to the occasion and some struggle[…]

College Commitment: Isaiah Sampson (2019 Camas HS)

Now that the season is over, it’s time for seniors to start making decisions on their future. For Isaiah Sampson, the choice has already been made. The versatile 6-foot-6, 200-pound swingman from Camas had been hearing from a number of schools in the recruiting process, but after making an official visit recently he’s off the[…]

WIAA 4 State Championship: Mt. Si vs. Gonzaga Prep

Mt. Si would play a close game with Gonzaga Prep early on, but Anton Watson and company turned it up in the second half and decided the Wildcats would have to wait their turn. Gonzaga Prep would take the 4A state title by a score of 69-43. Here of some of the top performers from[…]

WIAA 3A State Final: O’Dea vs. Mt. Spokane

The 3A state championship featured Mt. Spokane and O’Dea. Mt. Spokane was coming off a a huge win over Rainier Beach in the semi, while O’Dea beat Eastside Catholic. If you polled people from all around the state, I am not sure too many people would have thought O’Dea and Mt. Spokane would have both[…]

WIAA State Tournament Top Performers So Far

Two days into the 4A/3A State Tournament there has been some pretty good individual performances from players across all teams. Prep Hoops has been present at (lost count) boys games in this tourney from 9am-9pm and came away impressed with the following performances:  2019 6’5 SG RaeQuan Battle (Marysville-Pilchuck) – The UW signee was extremely[…]

WIAA State Tourney Quartersfinals: Federal Way vs. Richland (Top Performers)

In 4A boys basketball, (5) Richland and (3) Federal Way squared off in the quarterfinals. Richland jumped out to a big lead early in the first quarter, draining threes from all over the floor. They led 14-2 just like that, but things changed pretty quickly a couple minutes into the second quarter. Once Federal Way[…]
