Here is a look at the Top 10 and a breakdown of each prospect’s game and upside.
No. 1 – Keyonte George Keyonte George 6'5" | SG IMG Academy | 2022 State #4 Nation FL – 6-5 – IMG
Speed, length, hops, athleticism, you can go on and on about attributes to like in George’s game. The Texas native made the move to IMG to help them battle Montverde for the No. 1 spot at the end of the season. A nightly mismatch, George is committed to Baylor and he continues to take the next steps every season. He has all the tools you want in a lead scoring guard.
No. 2 – Dariq Whitehead Dariq Whitehead 6'5" | SF Montverde Academy | 2022 State #5 Nation FL – 6-6 – Montverde
Whitehead made the decision to commit to Duke within the last month and he really fits the mold there at the next level. The longest-tenured Montverde prospect, he’s been with the program since his 8th grade season when he played sparingly. He has stuck through the process and matured every season. His body is strong and his IQ and athleticism are through the roof.
No. 3 – Vincent Iwuchukwu Vincent Iwuchukwu 7'0" | C Southern California Academy | 2022 #22 Nation CA-S – 7-0 – Montverde
Coming in and replacing Jalen Duren Jalen Duren 6'9" | PF Montverde Academy | 2022 FL won’t be an easy task but it appears that Iwuchukwu should be able to keep Montverde sound defensively. The 7-footer is committed to USC and he has a unique skillset for a center as he can shoot the ball well and move side to side nicely. He is a freakish shot blocker and defender.
No. 4 – Jaden Bradley Jaden Bradley 6'2" | PG IMG Academy | 2022 State #15 Nation FL – 6-2 – IMG
Headed to Alabama next year, Bradley always plays with a chip on his shoulder. He can drive and kick with the best of them and he can finish with slams and crafty takes. The IMG offense will be in good hands with him handling the rock for a good portion of games.
No. 5 – Ernest Udeh Ernest Udeh 6'10" | C Dr. Phillips | 2022 State #48 Nation FL – 6-10 – Dr. Phillips
One of the biggest risers in the 2022 class over the last year and a half stretch, Udeh earns a well deserved spot at No. 5 overall. Recently committed to Kansas, not only did he commit to strengthing his body, but he developed a true offensive game as a big man. A seasoned defender, the Dr. Phillips forward is in for a monster senior year.
No. 6 – Jalen Hood-Schifino Jalen Hood-Schifino 6'4" | PG Montverde Academy | 2022 State #27 Nation FL – 6-4 – Montverde
Indiana is getting a true steal in Hood-Schifino, in my opinion. The Montverde guard can really handle the rock with confidence and on top of that, he is a rock-solid deep ball shooter. His ball fakes and hesitation moves can trick defenses and really help him scoring-wise.
No. 7 – Skyy Clark Skyy Clark 6'2" | PG Montverde Academy | 2022 State #17 Nation FL – 6-2 – Montverde
Just three months after tearing his ACL, Clark was running in the Montverde gym at a good pace just last week (VIDEO here). The Kentucky commit is destined to return at some point for reigning Geico national champion Montverde. He is an electric scorer who can fill up a stat sheet quickly.
No. 8 – Eric Dailey – 6-7 – IMG
A true sharpshooter and talented guard, Dailey is coming close to making a decision at the next level. The IMG athlete has offers from a plethora of schools which include UF, Miami, Georgia, TCU, Alabama, Texas. Michigan and Iowa State. Dailey can guard nearly every position on the floor and score in bunches offensively.
No. 9 – Jarace Walker Jarace Walker 6'8" | CG IMG Academy | 2022 State #12 Nation FL – 6-8 – IMG
Walker trimmed his final list to these options: Alabama, Texas, Auburn, Houston, Maryland, LSU, and the NBA G-League. The jack of all trades player for IMG can beat you with a mid-range jumper, handle the rock or simply out tough you inside on both ends of the floor.
No. 10 – Malik Reneau Malik Reneau 6'7" | PF Montverde Academy | 2022 State #33 Nation FL – 6-7 – Montverde
Headed to UF next fall, Reneau has been a true bonafide athlete for quite some time. In his first season at Montverde after playing at Mater, the big man proved to be a versatile finisher and slasher down low. He has a reliable mix of power and burst that works well with his game.
Jaden Bradley Jaden Bradley 6'2" | PG IMG Academy | 2022 State #15 Nation FL with the POSTER! 🔥 @JBsmoovve @prephoops @imgabasketball
