The Class of 2027 has been fun to watch and they will congregate once again in Southern California this weekend and we are excited to watch some good ball and some good players. Here is a list of a few players that have been paying well and we are excited to see once again.
Very is to say that players need to play the right way. Gene is one of those players that plays the right way. He can give you some change of speed, some power ball and some footwork as well. When he is bringing the ball up the floor he does a great job of scanning the floor and getting that ball up ahead if he needs to. He has that floor scan on lock and when he gets close to range he can stop and pop in transition. LA Soldiers runs some solid slashing action and back screens that get him great looks. Ready to see him back on the floor to see what he’s added to that game of his.
Got a lot of calls on this kid from many prep schools looking to add big time players in this Class of 2027 and they asked if he was the real deal and the answer was, “This kid is a straight hooper”. With solid positional size already he could end up being a 6’6 wing that could be an easy D1 find. He shoots the ball well and he is physical. One of the best two way defenders in the west. To add to the skill he has and the work he does on both ends of the floor he is a kid that has a high motor. Another player we are excited to see as he might have added more to his bag.
There will be a lot of eyes on this kid as he is just bigger than most at his age. You can see that he does not force things and is a willing passer but in the last stop he showed patience and he also showed that he could step outside and let it fly. Will be interesting to see him in that pick n’ roll and see him show off that shooting as his confidence continues to rise.
Keaundre is that Swiss Army Knife out there. He can handle and get that ball up the floor in a hurry. He can get you buckets outside in a catch and shoot and he is at his best attacking the rim on weak closeouts. He is a lanky off the ball guard that has a great pace. When he is out in the perimeter he has a good left to right cross and overall handle but he does not over dribble. Footwork is elite and he is just getting started.
