The first live period is over, and several local players put their names squarely on the ranking’s radar. Here’s a look at 10 players that seemed poised to receive their first offers soon.
With the pure PG position becoming more and more outdated, a lot of schools are looking at Yapi to be their potential Floor General. Several mid majors have already reached out, and I wouldn’t be suprised if he got action before or after the 2nd live period.
High Academic big men are always a priority. Ellena has the ability to protect the rim, and that signature skill combined with his academic prowess should be give him a fighting chance to get offer attention.
Taylor is simply too talented to be ignored. The PG has bounced around schools, however when he’s on the court, his talent speaks for himself. He’s a good two way player, and with his improved offensive skills, look for him to draw some scholarship interest.
The young freshman has skyrocketed this Spring serving notice while dominating on the 3SBB circuit. He’s shown that he can impact games with his rebounding as well as his ability to score the ball. He’ll be transfering to Red Rock Academy next season, which will provide even more National exposure.
TDJ just keeps balling. He’s been really good when I’ve watched him during AAU and HS spring leagues. He’s a good two way player that can guard both backcourt spots effectively. With a loaded Arbor squad heading down to Section 7 don’t be suprised if he turns the head of several coaches.
Don’t be suprised if Collins is one of the breakout players of the Summer. The scoring guard has bided his time playing with some pretty talented players on both his HS and grasroots programs. Look for him to put his athleticsm to good use on the EYBL circuit and during HS month, which should be enough to get him his first offer.
Much like Collins Simeus is poised to open some eyes after bidding his time during the Scholastic year. He’s a combo type that loves to get downhill and finish. Look for him to show more PG skills in the next coulpe of months a position that is becoming increasingly attractive to college coaches.
The fact that Shaw hasn’t received an offer yet is a bit mind boggling. The two time state champion MVP is an electrifying scorer that has proven he can display his signature skill against top competition. With the way he’s performed on during the HS season and the level of competition he’s played against on the Circuit, you have to think it’s only a matter of time before his offers come flooding in.
Ghallab is coming off of one of the most impressive statistical seasons in state history. This spring he suited up with the Punishers to compete on the UA Rise circuit, which will only open him up to more offer opportunities.
The mecurial Anderson is an intriguing talent. He’s a versatile offensive weapon that can score with his back to the basket, or faceup and knock down mid range jumpers. What will probably get him an offer first is his unique playmaking ability. Anderson is one of the best grab and go guys in the class, with the ability to rebound and lead the break.
