The 6-3 rising senior combo guard has transferred from Jones to Oak Ridge. Liptrot is a viable three-level scoring threat who can score off the catch as well as off the bounce. His ball-handling skills have continued to improve as he displays more confidence initiating the offense. On the defensive side, Liptrot uses his athleticism to battle for rebounds with the best of them. He will look to rely on his defensive catalyst heading into his senior season.
The 6-4 rising senior guard transferred from Canterbury to Boca Ciega for the upcoming season. Naylor uses his versatility on both ends of the floor whether it’s playing on the interior on the offensive end or his ability to guard multiple positions on the defensive end. Naylor can score on all three levels and uses his athleticism where he is unafraid to finish around the rim through traffic. His ball-handling skills have also continued to improve as he is poised to have a big senior season.
The 5-11 rising senior combo guard has transferred from Forest to Williston for the upcoming season. McCoy has a smooth jump shot and has continued to play with more confidence this past summer. McCoy is also an excellent playmaker where he uses his quickness to collapse defenses finding the open shooters. On the defensive end, McCoy plays with a ton of toughness and is scrappy when it comes to guarding on the ball. He is also very active at jumping the passing lanes turning defense into offense.
The 6-7 rising senior has transferred from Providence to DME Academy for the upcoming season. Robinson has a dangerous attack and can finish at the front of the rim with authority. He is explosive on dribble-drives using his athleticism where he is efficient at a high level. Robinson is also a beast on the glass where he rebounds exceptionally well on both ends of the floor and has quick feet. His outside range will look to improve this upcoming season as he gains more confidence shooting from the outside.
The 6-1 rising senior combo guard has transferred from Edgewater to The Rock for the upcoming season. Taylor is at his best when he is scoring at the front of the rim through traffic while absorbing contact. Taylor has a smooth handle and is an excellent passer on the run as well as explosive when it comes to shooting from the mid-range. Taylor is also an underrated rebounder for his size using every dose of his athleticism to battle the boards against bigger players. Taylor holds offers from Appalachian State, Florida Gulf Coast, Murray State, Stetson and several others.
