The 20th Annual Montverde Academy Invitational Tournament continued on Friday, with all six teams battling it out. Prep Hoops Florida scout Riley Sheppard was on the grounds of Montverde Academy and here is who stood out from the Class of 2025 on the second day of the tournament.
Wimbley did just about everything for Westminster in the close loss on Friday. Scoring 20 points (10 of 15 from the field), grabbing ten boards and dishing out five assists. But arguably the most impressive feat is with Wimbley’s usage, he did not commit a single turnover. At 6-6, Wimbley controls the offense at a steady pace and is strong around the basket to finish through contact.
Finishing with a team-high 14 points in the loss, Allen continues to prove just how dangerous he is with the ball in his hands. Most dangerous from the catch-and-shoot, defenses can’t ignore Allen for a second with his blink-of-an-eye shooting release. To go along with it, the guard is also an elite facilitator, always finding his teammate in their shooter’s pocket even if the pass seems impossible.
The sophomore guard may have been the most impactful player on the court for periods of the second half, being a big reason why Durango pulled off the close victory. Knoll does all the little things that translate to winning basketball – offensive rebounding, taking charges and diving after loose balls. However, he also adds a smooth offensive game on top of it, with a slick lefty jumper and ball handling, Knoll’s 11 points proved vital down the stretch.
If you need more proof that basketball is transitioning into a positionless game, look no further than Cooper Flagg Cooper Flagg 6'7″ | SF Nokomis Regional | 2025 FL . Arguably the best player in the Class of 2025, Flagg can flat out do everything on the basketball court. He rebounds at a high rate, can facilitate by playing the point, stretch the floor and shoot it, and defend inside-out. Oh yeah, and all at 6-8 and 200lbs.
