Some nuggets (from Phenom Hoop Report) from guys to watch:

2019 Marten Maide: This could be a really big year for this sharp shooter. He showed why with a smooth stroke and knockdown capability. Watch for this young man.

2019 Donovan Gregory: If you want to know who made the biggest noise at Olympic by throwing down some bodies, look no further. Attacking guard that is superbly athletic.

2019 JC Tharrington: It amazes us how well Tharrington plays and displayed how much he understands the game of basketball. He doesn’t turn the ball over, he can flat out shoot it, and plays under control.


#6

More from Phenom Hoop Report:

6’2” 2019 Myles Pierre
Team Charlotte
Myles is tough, both physically and mentally. He really defends well, in fact his defense was the catalyst for his offense success. He plays with great pace and he really did good work in the mid range, with his 1 and 2 dribble pull up game.

My friend’s son plays on Tharrington’s team, says the can kid really shoot the ball.

[quote=“Ruckus42, post:13, topic:30902”]Please tell me we beat ncst to the punch on Withers.[/quote]Seems like there was some miscommunication about the offer. I believe it’s been out there for a while, but perhaps Jaelyn was unaware.


#15

That’s not a good sign !
We need to lie, steal, cheat…whatever we need to do to keep him here. ;D

Reclassified 2019 guard Jalen Lecque has been the best player on the floor in this one. Absolute bucket-getter. Highlight-reel finisher.
