Below is a review of six southeastern Pennsylvania prospects from the Class of 2024 who we suspect, for one reason or another, are primed to have a monster junior season this winter.
– 6’0″ / Plymouth Whitemarsh / New Jersey Scholars / Point Guard: In 2022-23 Colzie will be flanked by high-level prospects like small forward , wing and combo guard . Those three will space the floor for “P-Dub,” giving Colzie driving lanes to the rim. With his speed, tight handles and change of pace skills, Colzie will be able to take advantage of those openings and get to the cup frequently.
– 5’11” / Pope John Paul II / Eastern PA Elite / Point Guard: PJP graduated its top three scorers from 2021-22, so this winter Demito (pic above) will ascend to their No. 1 option. This high IQ point guard is ready for that increased role. Demito can blow past defenders with his dribble drives. He can also drain spot up threes. Demito’s constant off ball motion makes him difficult to guard. Lastly, Demito excels at turning steals / deflections into easy buckets.
Philly Pride National UAA / Combo Guard: Dow has been flying under the radar for some time now, but in 2022-23 he will step into the spotlight. He is speedy guard who gets downhill quickly and can go coast-to-coast. Dow has also improved his 3-point shooting significantly. With opponents focused on containing teammate Josh Wyche (Lafayette commit), Dow should get easy looks this winter. In short, we are predicting a monster season for Dow and Cristo Rey.– 6’2″ / Cristo Rey Phila. /
East Coast Power -Richards / Combo Guard: Fleet is coming off a summer circuit where he played outstanding basketball, displaying a 3-level skill set we were not aware he possessed. Combine Fleet’s development with the presence of skilled teammates Nyle Ralph-Bayer and and the Warriors have a solid scoring trio. Therefore, in 2022-23 opposing defenses will be stretched thin against WCH, and Fleet has the skills to annihilate one on one matchups.– 6’1″ / WC Henderson /
Philly Pride National / Combo Guard: This summer Salisbery transferred to Perkiomen School where he is joining a roster loaded with DI talent (including Florida commit Thomas Hough). Salisbery (19 ppg. last season) is already a prolific three level scoring guard. Now he has high level teammates to work off. Those talented teammates must also be guarded tightly. So Salisbery will not face the double and triple teams he experienced at 1A school Conestoga Valley.– 6’1″ / Perkiomen School /
East Coast Power -Danzig / Center: In 2021-22 Szoradi played sparingly because of injuries. This summer Szoradi proved he is fully healthy and that his game is on the upswing. Szoradi added muscle and learned to use that physicality at both ends of the floor. His footwork has shown significant improvement too. College coaches will also love Szoradi’s endless energy, silky shooting touch and rebounding skills. Episcopal perimeter standout will prevent opponents from packing the paint vs. EA, so this season Szoradi should thrive on the interior.– 6’7″ / Episcopal Academy /
