– 2024 – PG – Howard Pulley
Freitag just knows how to run a team. Came away greatly impressed with his ability to balance being a scorer and a facilitator and just give Howard Pulley what they need throughout the course of a game. When he wants to take over, Freitag has a certain suddenness and explosive on-ball ability that leads defenders in the dust. He can get to the rim at will and create something high percentage early in possessions with his combination of strength, power, and burst on the ball. Whoever lands Freitag is also getting a guard that can make impact plays defensively. The 6-foot-2 junior is an explosive leaper that blocks/alters a lot of shots. They’re also getting a leader and a floor general. Freitag did an outstanding job of finding the hot hands and calling plays for those teammates. In two games, Freitag averaged 19.0 points, 7.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per contest, both wins for Pulley.
Isaiah Henry – 2025 – G – Team CP3
Henry was one of the best players I’ve seen in Georgia. Love the game and mental makeup of this promising, young prospect. In a win over Howard Pulley, Henry just made everything look so easy and made high-quality, winning plays throughout the contest. The 6-foot-4 sophomore can play either guard sport effectively and leads as both a scorer and facilitator. A strong, athletic prospect, Henry is very bouncy as well and threw down a couple of highlight slams in transition. Also a two-way player, Henry gets after it defensively without fouling and causes turnovers. On the ball, he’s a sound decision-maker that gets into the teeth of the defense and creates for others. A well-rounded scorer, Henry can create in isolation or work off screens. Clemson, Georgia, and South Florida are all on the board early with offers. He finished with 17 points and eight rebounds in Saturday’s win.
– 2024 – PG – Phenom University
Janowski lead Phenom to a tough, competitive win over Team United Saturday afternoon. The Nebraska commit had 15 points, six assists, and stepped up with the game-winning 3-pointer as time expired from way downtown. He didn’t shoot the ball well and was put in some tough, late shot clock situations, but thought Janowski made the right basketball plays most of the game. Janowski also got robbed of a few assists and should have been flirting with a triple-double. Have definitely seen Janowski dial down his shot attempts this weekend and focus on being more of a floor general. The Pewaukee standout has always been a lethal scorer who can heat up like an oven and create just about any shot he wants, but at the next level, may be relied upon to be more of a true point guard. That side of his game is definitely showing, particularly from a leadership and calming floor presence standpoint.
– 2025 – SG – Team Herro
Had one high major ask about Kinziger after his play this weekend. A handful of mid-majors are starting to fall in love with the De Pere product. Think you’ll see some offers start to roll in after the next eval period if he continues this. Kinziger had 22 points (7-13), five rebounds, and two assists in a win over Team United on Saturday. Kinziger’s shotmaking has been outstanding throughout the event and he’s hitting from everywhere on the floor while creating against athletes. Maybe the most impressive part of his game? The ability to shoot in transition with his momentum going toward the rim. One of the hardest shots in the game, Kinziger can bring the ball up at top speed, compose his body, and drain triples before the defense gets set up. Sort of a bigger version of his brother, Kinziger has that tireless attitude on offense where he’s never stagnant, scores equally well on and off the ball, and once he gets hot…stays hot. Despite only being a sophomore, Kinziger has a college-ready, mature offensive game that’s going to translate really well at the next level.
– 2024- F – Howard Pulley
McAndrew was it again Saturday afternoon, dropping 25 points in a win over Alabama Fusion. The 6-foot-8 sniper went 7-of-12 from the field and 5-of-10 from 3-point range. McAndrew also grabbed nine rebounds. Alabama Fusion knew quickly McAndrew could shoot it and did all they could to take away his rhythm 3’s, but it just didn’t matter. McAndrew continued to shoot it well from well past the arc and also figured out how to free himself by setting screens for others and then flaring out. While he’s not known for his defense, McAndrew had a terrific performance as a weak-side shot blocker, recording three swats. He wiped away a good chunk of points by covering up for a teammate and protecting the rim.
– 2025 – SF – Howard Pulley
Wilson bounced back from a tough performance in Friday’s opener. It looked like Howard Pulley was gonna get run out of the gym early, but Wilson helped make things interesting, at least for a bit in the second half. At 6-foot-6, Wilson looks the part of a strong, slashing forward. He likes contact and is able to absorb it at the rim. When he plays in traffic, Wilson has a sweet little spin move to evade defenders. Motor seems to be a little inconsistent, but when Wilson plays hard, he’s tough to keep away from the rim and that includes as an offensive rebounder. Saw some versatile flashes on Saturday as well. Wilson was able to size up defenders a little bit and knock down some tough shots off the bounce.
