Evaluation:

Pick N Pop Stretch 4 who is not even 16 yet and has so much room to Grow, and has the right approach to improving and time on his side. Brendan is a true face up SF, who is capable of posting up and playing with with his back to the basket as well. Good hands and soft touch in the paint, and when he flashes to the HP he has the ability to shoot, pass or drive it out of the High Post. Active Rebounder, and battles hard in the paint for position on both ends of the court. Plays with energy, has a high ceiling, and being only 16 I expect his Game to Grow! One to get on your Radar in the Spring, and track his progress as I project Brendan to have a breakthrough Season and put up big numbers this Year.

Evaluation:

Luke is an old school, hard hat, bring your lunch pail to work type of player. Plays bigger than 6 '5 when he is in the paint, has a motor that never stops, and shoots the 3 like a 2 Guard. Doesn’t have a true Position, which will limit his Recruitment at the higher levels, but makes too many Winning Plays on both Offense and Defense to not add to your 2025s to Watch List. Active on the Glass both from the HP Area or when he’s in the Paint. After finishing on ‘Top’ in LA then again at the DFW Camp, he has sold me that he is a next Level Prospect to track heading into the Select Season!

Evaluation:

With 2 years Grow his Game Texas has the potential, a solid foundation, and High basketball IQ Texas with time on his side to go from Elite Level Varsity Player To College Level Recruit. Shoots The Ball with Range and shoots it with Confidence. out on film is you shoot the ball at a high 5 and shoot it with confidence.
Moves well without the ball to get to his spots and knock down shots, and has a good understanding on how to create space off the catch to get his shot off vs bigger defenders. Must get stronger and continue to add a 2nd layer to his Offense when run off the line, but right now a College Ready Shooter with time on his side.

Evaluation:

One of the Surprises for me was Small School Playmaker Kason Brown. Listed at 6’4 but looks more like 6’6 with his length and athleticism. Deceptive Athlete that made some impressive plays attacking the basket, including dunking over 2 forwards with Authority in the 3 on 3 Portion of the Camp. Kason has a High Basketball IQ, High Motor & High Ceiling heading into his Sr Season. Scholarship Level Wing who would be drawing heavy interest at the D2 Level If he played in a bigger Bball Market or Select Ball last Summer. He plans on Playing this Summer so get him on your list of Recruits to Watch. He is Already a College Level Playmaker with Plenty Of Time To Grow his Game and Increase his Level of Recruitment.

Crafty Combo Guard who scores it at all 3 levels. Moves well without the ball, gets to his spots and knocks down over 45% of his 3pt shots! Scholarship Level Shooter with the ability to play some lead guard as well. High IQ College Level Combo flying under the radar due to playing at a smaller private school. Add him to your list of 2025s to track next year as he is set to have a big Senior Season.

David Has a High Basketball IQ, Understands How to Play and Stays in Attack Mode with the ability to get by the 1st line of Defense and make the right play when he gets in the Paint. Knows when to score and is a skilled Passer when drawing help. What David Does Best is Stay Aggressive Throughout Without Making Bad Plays. Efficient Offensive Player who plays with Pace and gets to his spots without getting sped up. Big Guard That Can Run Your Team or Move to the Off Guard Spot and put Points on the Board. Has the talent and upside to play at the higher levels. Good One To Get On Early as I can certainly see him Rise in the Ranks his Sr Season at Tomball HS.

Evaluation:

High IQ skilled PG who has the size and shot to play the 2 Guard, and the skill set and court vision to be a PG. Being the best player at a smaller school, he most likely will play the PG Position at Holy Cross but he's at his best off the ball. Regardless of Position, Aaron plays with great pace, scores it at all 3 levels, and has a high Basketball IQ. Not a lot of flash just makes plays, makes the right decision, and shoots it at a high %. Deceptive Athlete that could put up big numbers this Year and start to gain Genuine Interest in the Spring by doing so.
