These seven underclassmen turned in impressive performances during the opening weekend of the Breakdown Fall League!
Cedric’s recruitment has continued to rise this fall and it is easy to see why. The 6-foot point guard is electric with the ball in his hands and can score from anywhere on the floor. He is a very confident shooter and was letting it fly from well beyond the three-point line on Sunday. He is also extremely quick and can blow by his defender to get inside for finishes and assists. Tomes has received offers from both Minnesota and Iowa State headed into his heavily anticipated sophomore season.
Nolan really impressed me with his versatility and has a lot of potential as a prospect, especially if he continues to grow. The 2026 wing already stands at 6-foot-5 and has the tools to impact the game in a variety of ways. He is able to stretch the floor, as he is a confident shooter from the perimeter. In a couple of instances, he also grabbed a rebound and pushed it up the floor to create chances for his team. Anderson brings some size to the table on an Eden Prairie team with tons of talented guard play.
Christian was at BSM for his freshman year, but will join the defending AAAA champions at Wayzata for this season. He fits into this team well, as he is an excellent shooter who is a threat off the ball. I saw him connect with three triples off the catch and was able to shoot even with a hand in his face. He can also handle in the space, being able to push the ball up the floor in transition. Wiggins and Wayzata are among the favorites to win back-to-back state championships in 2023-24.
Ty is currently ranked as the number 1 freshman in Minnesota and he showed why on Sunday. He does not look like a 9th grader when he is on the floor, as he is already very polished in many categories. Eden Prairie has a roster full of talented guards, so Ty played more of a wing/forward role. This caused him to be matched up with one of the top big men in the state where he impressed, limiting him when he had the ball inside. Scopring wise, I saw him connect with a three off the catch and finish off layups at the rim following back cuts.
Malachi had a much larger role than I expected heading into Sunday and he really impressed me in a stacked Totino-Grace lineup. He looked confident with the ball in his hands and had a couple of nice makes in the comeback win over Wayzata. I saw him convert on some finishes at the rim, as well as connect with a pull-up jumper over a defender in the mid-range. It looks like Hill will be a viable option off the bench for the Eagles this season as a freshman.
I really liked what I saw out of Ryker this past club season, as he was running with the top 15U Minnesota Fury team. It was interesting to see him work in an expanded role this past weekend and he showed that he could be a top option as a scorer at the varsity level in his sophomore season. He showed great touch around the basket, converting on floaters, as well as contested finishes at the basket. He was also effective using the dribble to open things up for his team on offense.
I love the intensity that Hamze brings when he is on the floor and he will be another name among the stacked backcourt at Eden Prairie. The 6-foot-1 guard impressed me most with his effort on defense, as he was causing major disruption for opposing ball handlers. He was great defending on the ball, as well as getting in passing lanes for steals and deflections. This Eagles team has a lot of great scorers and having a player like Hamze is a great match.
