Continuing from Part I of Unsigned Seniors which can be read here. I will further explore quality 2021 prospects who are still on the board and uncommitted for next season.
| 6’4″ PG | Lee Academy
Akili is a long-armed wiry point guard with outstanding feel, court vision, and passing ability. He uses his size and athleticism to excel in the open court. Akili is an unselfish rhythm player who takes joy in watching his teammates have success on the court. When asked, he can become a high-level scorer, as well. The Lee Academy post-graduate is a major competitor on the court and doesn’t back down from anyone. “can do it all. He checks off all the boxes you want in a player. He has the height, skill, and dog mentality. Akili only thinks about is winning; whatever the team needs he will do. Somebody is going to be blessed by adding this diamond in the rough to their program” – Doc Kennedy, Lee Academy Assistant Coach
| 6’6″ F | Notre Dame – Fairfield
Akim has a strong athletic frame and the wingspan to match. He’s an outstanding athlete who finishes well above the rim. Joseph’s versatility and glimpses of his overall skill set make him an intriguing prospect. He has a soft touch in the paint but is capable of beating defenders off the dribble along with knocking down shots from the perimeter. He has a knack for tracking down rebounds which support his competitive nature on the basketball court.
Rassoul Abakar | 6’9″ F | Notre Dame – Fairfield
Rassoul is a long athletically built forward with advanced size at the high school level. He makes quick definitive offensive decisions which makes him practically unguardable in the paint area. Abakar is fundamentally sound which supports his skill set. He’s able to stretch the floor showing good mid-range touch on his jumper but he can also beat you on the block with his back to the basket. His rim running ability along with his high-energy approach allows him to make an impact on both ends of the court.
| 6’3 CG | Cheshire Academy
Ethan is a strong physical left-handed guard who can be effective playing both positions. As a shot creator, Ethan keeps the pressure on defenders. He uses his strength to get to the basket and convert through contact. Defenders have to respect his shooting ability which makes him a tough matchup. Ethan competes on both ends of the court. He uses his length to disrupt opponents on the defensive end. A Connecticut High School Coach recently stated “I’m shocked he’s still unsigned that kid can play. I’m not sure why he’s being overlooked but he’s a steal.”
