Brown reclassified into the 2025 class and is the top newcomer in the update. The 6’4 guard attacks the basket strong as he can finish over the top of defenders at the rim and does not mind drawing contact. Brown uses his quick first step to get by his defender off the bounce and can also score in the mid-range. He moves well without the ball in his hands and can defend multiple positions on the floor. Brown is an electric guard prospect who should put up big numbers this winter.

Daniel sets strong screens in the half court and is able to draw contact down low. He is a force on the glass at both ends of the floor and uses his size to influence shots around the basket. Daniel is a physical post prospect who will be a force down low for Roselle Catholic.

Mounanga is one of the most intriguing prospects in the class with his combination of length and skill. The lanky 6’6 guard has a good release on his jumper and rises up with confidence on his shot. Mounanga is more than just a shooter as he can also put the ball on the floor and finish around the basket. He has the length to defend multiple positions on the floor and is an underrated rebounder. Mounanga is a prospect to track in the Garden State with his combination of shooting and length.
