Reis Butcher Reis Butcher 6'4" | SF Brebeuf Jesuit | 2024 State #250 Nation IN 6-4 Brebeuf Jesuit (IN) Super athletic and long prospect had an excellent weekend for INB Elite. Used his length to step into passing lanes and get multiple steals. Length also allowed him to finish well above the rim with ease. I saw him drop 24 against a very good REACH squad (see below) Positional fit will be big for him at the next level. He primarily played the point this weekend. If he can develop into the spot a little more naturally in the next few years. Then his potential and recruiting profile could really take off.
Uchenna Amene Uchenna Amene 6'2" | PG Detroit Catholic Central | 2024 State MI 5-10 Southfield Christian (MI) Unlike Butcher no positional questions with this Motor City lead guard prospect. Used his speed and tight handle to get to the basket at will for REACH all weekend. Not very big or an unbelievably explosive leaper. But hangs in the air and is a creative finisher. This allows him to be a threat at the rim. While also being proficient at getting to the foul line. Next up in a long line of Eagles point guard prospects. From Harlond Beverly (Miami) to Bryce Washington (Pennsylvania). Southfield Christian has been a factory in the 21st century. While not possessing their size. Amene has similar Division 1 potential. Also should step into the Brady Titus Brady Titus 5'10" | PG Tri-Unity Christian | 2022 State MI role as the top player in Division 4 next year.
Calvin Robins Jr Calvin Robins Jr 6'5" | PF Kenwood | 2024 State IL 6-5 Kenwood (IL) Last time I watched this forward prospect. He was primarily standing out on the defensive end at the Run and Slam in Fort Wayne. At Havoc in the Heartland he was showing off his expanding offensive game. This development will be key as he probably does not have the vertical size to play the four at the next level. But he is already be a defensive stopper at the the three spot. With an emerging perimeter repertoire as well. Next level athleticism and has no problem finishing at the rim. Had several rim rattling dunks this weekend.
Tyler Parrish Tyler Parrish 6'2" | SG Chesterton | 2024 State IN 6-2 Chesterton (IN) Combo guard had a big weekend fir GRIII Elite. Scored 22 points in a opening win over Chicago based My Journey. Followed that up with 15 points in a nail biting win over a REACH squad that featured a very good backcourt. Workmanlike performances from a guard who is not going to light up the highlight reels. But is extremely fundamentally sound and efficient in all aspects of the game. In addition to playing on one of top teams on the Prep Hoops Circuit. Also plays on one of better regular season programs in Indiana. Exposure should not be an issue. If he continues to play at this level his recruitment could really take off in the next two years.
Cameron Regnerus Cameron Regnerus 6'7" | PF Grandville | 2024 State MI 6-7 Grandville (MI) I know it’s the 21st century. But we need to get a traditional post on the first team right? Well this would be the place to start. Was a huge presence all weekend for a West Michigan Future squad that went undefeated on the weekend. Could definitely add more weight but plays with a surprising level of strength. Best game was in a big time matchup with fellow regional squad West Michigan Lakers. Played well against skilled 6-9 post Layne Risdon Layne Risdon 6'9" | C Zeeland East | 2024 State MI . Finished with with 17 points. But it was his constant assault on the rim that stood out. Threw down five “no doubt about it” two handed dunks. These were not cheap ones on breakaways. And once again this was not against a small frontline. Excellent opening performance in his first action on the Prep Hoops Circuit. Definitely a prospect to watch as he plays a little closer to home next weekend in Grand Rapids.
Dhani Flannigan Dhani Flannigan 5'10" | PG Franklin Central | 2024 State IN 5-10 Franklin Central (IN) Small but powerful point guard had a good weekend for D1 Indiana. Notched 19 points in his teams victory over NEBC (NY). Along with 20 points in a come from behind victory over Chicago Lockdown.
Daniel Smythe Daniel Smythe 6'3" | CG Orchard Lake St. Mary's | 2024 State MI 6-2 Orchard Lake St Mary’s (MI) Shooting runs deep in the Smythe family. Older brother shot his way to a spot with Drew Valentine and Loyola (IL). While “Bugsy” doesn’t quite have size of his sibling. He sure can stroke it. Standout contest was a 24 point outing against EG10. He is much more than just a shooter. Is a good playmaker and willing passer. Like Parrish plays at a high profile Michigan high school program. With Trey McKenney Trey McKenney 6'4" | CG Orchard Lake St. Mary's | 2025 State MI and Sharod Barnes Sharod Barnes 6'2" | SG Orchard Lake St, Mary's | 2025 State MI in his backcourt he should have ample opportunity to show off his playmaking a shooting abilities.
Devonte Reed 6-4 Taylor Made Prep (NY) A little off the 2024 radar as he played up a grade level with NEBC 2023. Extremely explosive and bouncy athlete. Had arguably the finish of the weekend. A huge one handed flush on Saturday against EG10. The Buffalo native is one of the more athletic wing prospects you will see on the Prep Hoops Circuit.
Nyzir Duncan Nyzir Duncan 6'5" | PF Hillcrest | 2024 IL 6-5 Hillcrest (IL) While fellow Hillcrest post Matthew Moore Matthew Moore 6'7" | PF Joliet West | 2023 State IL was opening eyes with Chicago Lockdown in the main gym. Duncan was leading his squad to a 4-0 record down the road at SportZone. Posted 19 points in a close victory over 5 Star Gabler. Showed perimeter ability by hitting 3 threes to start that contest.
Nick Glover Nick Glover 6'5" | PF Warren Central | 2024 State IN 6-5 Warren Central (IN) You don’t need to be told this INB Platinum prospect is attracting football recruiting interest. Overpowering athlete in the post and on the boards. Led his squad to undefeated record on the weekend. Posted an eye opening 24 points and 15 rebound performance in his second contest. Like Regnerus one of the top 2024 prospects to watch next weekend in Grand Rapids.
