It’s day 2 of Prep Hoops Live! Who shined and showed out on Saturday morning? Let’s take a look…..
Saturday AM Special
(2025) |6’4 PG| ND Phenom
Big and sturdy PG. Dove on the floor for loose balls and posted up for a bucket. Passed well out of the pick-n-roll game. Directed traffic and controlled the tempo. Versatile finisher, scored with both hands around the rim, and also had a nice inside-hand score.
(2025) |6’4 SG| ND Phenom
25 points and 5 triples early this morning. Good-sized guard and a hot-shot shooter. Braaten gets great elevation on his jump shot. His mechanics are pure and fluid. His range goes deep and he is skilled with the rock. Spaces the floor and knows how to get separation.
(2025) |6’7 PF| ND Phenom
He is bigger and more athletic than I realized. Walz is a scary player that he can cover a ton of ground and his arms are very long. Walz had two impressive power Slam Dunks. He also showed the ability to step out and hit the 3-ball. His shot is effortless. Ramsey has good feet and he is a sharp cutter. Walz had an impressive first showing.
(2025) |6’7 SF| ND Phenom
I liked how he moved his feet on defense to keep dribblers in front. His arms go on for days and Karson always gets a high hand up on shooters. Ouse scored in traffic with a soft touch and he cashed in from deep. Karson scored off a roll to the basket. I like his craftiness in the paint. He is a tough matchup because of his versatility, length, and skill.
(2025) |6’2 G| ND Phenom
He made many plays off the bounce. Englund is a dangerous slasher that thrives on deep penetration into the heart of the D. Caden is bigger since I saw him play last. He is a dynamic finisher but will also find the open man. I like his NRG, aggressiveness, and overall playmaking ability. Englund also showed that he can hit from 3-point land.
(2025) |6’4 SG| All Iowa Attack 10th Elite Red
He is a long guard that can shoot the lights out. Severson has a smooth jump shot with natural scoring ability. He was the top-scoring sophomore in Iowa during the high school season and it is easy to see why. Severson makes the game look simple and easy.
Maverick Ingram (2025) |6’1 G| All Iowa Attack 10th Elite Red
He is a three-level scorer that can get buckets with ease against tough athletes. Ingram can stroke it from three-point land. He works hard on the glass and grabs O-boards. Maverick has great handles and he alleviates pressure with little effort. I like his cross, spin-move, and overall demeanor. Ingram can also score in traffic and through contact.
(2025) |6’5 SF| All Iowa Attack 10th Elite Red
He is a physical and strong athlete. Wieskamp is a vacuum rebounder. I love how he attacks the ball. Luke is physical, tough, and he has a nose for the ball. He scored with putbacks and he erased shots. Wieskamp is a next-level athlete.
Jordan Lyon (2024) |6’1 G| MN Chill Elite 2024
He scored from deep and from the paint. Lyon is not the biggest player on the court but he is long and wiry. I like his aggressiveness and how he attacks the basket without fear. Lyon is an elusive slasher and he can score after contact. If you give him space, he will drill the triple.
Dylan Zimmerman (2024) |6’5 SG| ECI 17U Prospects
He scored 15 points and knocked down three triples. Zim is a microwave that can put up points in a hurry. He is an absolute bucket from deep. Dylan is long and his shot is true to the mark. I like his confidence, length, and bounce. He is a shooter but can also make plays going to the rim.
(2024) |6’9 PF| ECI 17U Prospects
He showed good feet and a sweet baby hook in the first half. Brandt scored with O-board putbacks and with an inside-hand score in transition. He absorbs contact well and still finishes. I like how he fought for rebounds. Brandt is an intriguing prospect.
(2024) |6’2 SG| ECI 17U Prospects
He is a special athlete. It was easy to see why he has a D1 offer for football. St. Romain had multiple dunks and he was tough slashing to the hoop. Isiah created TO’s and he scored in transition. He is a next-level baller, it will be interesting to see which route he chooses.
