2024 is one of my favorite classes to cover and has some of the best players in the area. This class can flat out go and will be exciting to follow the rest of their High School career.
– Martin County High School – Transfer created a lot of buzz around the Treasure Coast this past season going viral with his signature poster dunks and packing in gyms everywhere he played. Perhaps one of the most exciting players we have seen this young man has a very bright future ahead. Elijah averaged 18 points per game to go along with 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Elijah is one of the best finishers I have seen and always comes up big in clutch situations. The Tigers finished with a 27-4 record winning their District championship over rival Dwyer High School and winning their first state championship since 1979. Elijah will look to have a huge Junior season ahead and I would say is an early favorite for player of the year.
– Treasure Coast High School – Tyson is a shifty combo guard who can score from all areas of the court. Tyson is lightning quick with some of the best ball handling skills in the area. Tyson finished his season averaging 12 points, 4 assists and 4 steals per game. Tyson is also one of the best outside shooters in the area and creates headaches for the opposing teams. Tyson will look to have a big travel season ahead on the Prep Hoops Circuit.
Jr – John Carroll Catholic High School – Tony is a dual sport star who gets it done on the court and the football field. Tony finished his season averaging 8 points and 5 rebounds a game while playing a key role in his team finishing with a 22-5 record. Tony is a strong finisher at the rim and is one of the best defenders in the area. He has blazing speed and moves well without the ball. Tony plays with a high level of energy and is the type of player who leaves it all on the floor.
– Morningside Academy – Damon had a big season finishing with 8 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals per game. Damon does a little bit of everything for his team and was a big reason the Eagles finished 20-4 winning their first ever District title. Damon also finished Top 5 regardless of class in 3 point shooting percentage at a staggering 56%. Damon has great court vision and is one of the better defenders in the area. Damon will look to keep his hot streak going on the Prep Hoops Circuit this upcoming travel season.
Derrick King – Fort Pierce Central High School – Derrick who is 6’6 and growing had a solid season finishing with 4 points and 4 rebounds pr game. Derrick came on big late in the season and has been showing great consistency from beyond the arc as evidenced by his 41% 3 point shooting percentage. Derrick has great footwork and is a solid player overall with a nice in and out game. This young man has huge upside and potential.
