Darien Bryant | 6’4” | 185 | Guard | St. Johns HS | Maryland

https://i2.wp.com/i.imgur.com/ohxfjOd.png

About: “Bryant (6-4) is a glue guy for St. John’s, a big-bodied wing who knows how to use his weight and finish at the rim. He showed some surprising explosiveness for a kid of his size. He rebounds the ball, makes good passes, and can hit the occasional mid-range jumper. He can continue to develop into a low Division I prospect.”–MarylandHoops.net 12/2/12

Tre Thomas | 6’2” | 175 | Shooting Guard | Good Counsel HS/Team Takeover | Olney MD

https://i1.wp.com/i.imgur.com/vX9RfgK.png

About: “Tre is a very good athlete who can really get to the basket.  He also employs a consistent pull up jumper.  His ability to get by defenders allows him to get these shots off. He is also a good rebounder on both ends of the floor and can play harrassing defense on good offensive players.  He needs to get stronger and avoid dribbling into trouble.  Tre seems to have mid major potential as well.”– DMVElite.com

About: “Grant is a great athlete with explosive jumping ability.  He is very good at attacking the rim off the dribble, an aggressive offensive player.  He also shoots the ball well from the perimeter.  Grant can play either the point or off the ball at the next level in my opinion.” —IndianaRecruitingGuide.com

Isaac Haas | 7’0” | 270 | Center | Hokes Bluff HS/Atlanta Celtics | Piedmont AL

ESPN Grade: 67

About: “Isaac was an impact whenever he stepped on the floor. Haas is a rare talent, standing 7’1 and weighing in at a muscular 270 pounds and even wears a size 22 shoe, he dominates in the lane. He has hands better than any 7 footer I’ve seen at his age and for a player who has very little training in the paint is pretty good with his back to the basket. Unlike most 7 footers his age Isaac is extremely good on his feet and runs the floor with ease. Haas is an impact on every possession whether it be swatting and changing shots at the defensive end or getting fed in the paint and scoring at will. In due time Haas will be on the radar of many high majors from all around the country. Aside from being an elite basketball prospect Haas also excels in the classroom. He boasts a 4.0 GPA and though he is only 16 has already scored a 24 on his ACT. You can catch Haas this upcoming weekend at the Adidas Super 64 Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada.”–RocWithMe.com 7/23/12

“It’s hard to miss Haas when he walks in the gym. The big fella brought back memories of Eric Montross as the center has good/strong hands and a body to go with his 7’0 frame. Haas showed the ability to run the floor well for someone his size” —ESPN.com 4/26/12

Sometimes, change is necessary for growth.  I am always trying to improve myself on and off the court. I hope to raise my GPA , make principal’s list all 4 quarters, do more community service and join a club. I am a 6’8 swing-man. I am willing to do whatever it takes to help my team win and I pride myself on being a good teammate. I am coachable, a good rebounder and passer. I have good court vision and a high basketball IQ. I have been told that I have tremendous ‘upside’ and I will continue to work on all aspects of my game.

Roderick Mills | 6’7” | 185 | Power Forward | St. Xavier HS | Cincinnati OH

Stats and Accomplishments: 6.7 ppg and 4.2 rpg sophomore year.

About: “Few are more talented in the 2014 class than the 6’7 Mills. He’s a skilled wing player who can shoot the ball with range and is becoming tougher attacking the basket off the dribble. As he improves his physicality it is conceivable that Mills will become one of Ohio’s most highly recruited prospects. He’s gotten better athletically and appears more confident on the court of late.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 6/2/12

“Evaluation: Skilled wing prospect with great length and versatility Roderick has unlimited potential. Good shooter from mid-range that can hit the three with time he is able to create his own shots with good creativity and the ability to handle the ball. Not the strongest player yet but physical enough to overpower smaller defenders and score over them he is best, at this point, in taking bigger opponents out on the wing. Bottom Line: As he adds strength and continues to refine his skills Roderick will have a chance to be a high major player. Already receiving interest from several Big 10 schools as well as Xavier, Dayton, and Cincinnati.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 8/26/11

“Freshman Roderick Mills, who scored 7 points, was extremely impressive in the first varsity game that CPHR has had a chance to see him play. Mills showed a good understanding of when to pick his spots to attack in St. Xavier’s disciplined offense and was active on the glass as well. Once he gains strength and adds a little more to his ball skills the sky is the limit for this young player.” —CincyPrepHoopsReport.blogspot.com 3/2/11

Javon Bess| 6’5” | 185 | Small Forward | Lincoln HS (Transferred from Pickerington Central) | Gahanna OH

About: “Evaluation: Point forward who is long, athletic, and constantly making plays with his high motor. “JB” can handle the ball against pressure in the full-court, attack the rim in the half-court, pass, score inside, and shoot the ball when he has time to set his feet. Truly versatile offensive player who is probably even better on the defensive end. Good feet, long arms, and anticipation skills allow him to lock down multiple spots. Bottom Line: Very intriguing prospect who should continue to improve as his ball-skills do. Shows the ability to possibly become a PG down the road, where he would have great size.”–TripleDoubleProspects.com 9/6/11

“Truly versatile offensive player who is probably even better on the defensive end. Good feet, long arms, and anticipation skills allow him to lock down multiple spots.” —UDHoopsRecruiting

“Javon Bess has had an impressive spring thus far, as well. Against the REACH Legends, Bess notched 8 points and played the role of facilitator in the offense. The 6-5 Bess was adept at exploiting mismatches, often shooting over smaller defenders while taking bigger defenders off the dribble for a drive-and-kick.” —UMHoops.com 5/10/12

Very good shooter with a quick release that can hit from three off the spot up or off of a screen.

Bottom Line: Talented guard with a passion for the game, will most likely be one of Cincinnati’s top players by his junior year.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 8/26/11

“On Sunday at the Top 50 Showcase Benzinger was as impressive as anyone playing, while competing against players that were significantly older then him.

Highlights (Hudl.com)

Grant Bryant | 6’6” | 195 | Forward | Kell HS | Marietta GA

Stats and Accomplishments: Averaged 15.5 ppg and 9 rpg as a sophomore

Appeared in 24 games and started 13 games as a freshman. He averaged 10.1 PPG, 5.7 Rebs, 55% FG, and 55% FT.  He was selected as the 2010-11 Most Improved Player Award.

About: “You have to like when you see players that have obviously been in the gym improving their games.  Bryant has definitely been in the gym and it showed over the weekend.  He is a face up four man right now and will be interesting to see the fight in him over the summer for the Ga. Stars 16U.  Bryant lining up on the block will certainly be a good thing as he will cause mismatches as he drags slower big men off of the block where he can go around them with either hand.  On the block he caused trouble because he is a lefty.  Bryant made himself hard to guard by staying active on the offensive glass and used a quick first step to get to the rim.” —CourtCred.com 5/12/12

“Great natural ability in the post.  He knows his role well and doesn’t try to play beyond the post. He sticks to the inside and dominates. Great back to the basket game.  Bryant’s timing on rebounds allows him to dominate on the boards. He also has a soft shooting touch. Bryant can be a little inconsistent and will press to make shots when he should pass to an open man. Bryant is also good ball-handler.”– d1spects.com 2/28/10

About: “Only a freshman, Staley is a talented future combo-forward who is still adjusting to playing against the older players at the high school level. The left-hander is a long, bouncy athlete that is active around the rim and should develop into one of Georgia’s best in the 2014 class. He has the ability to knock down the 15-foot jumper and is a good rebounder on both ends.” —ESPN.com 12/20/10

“If there is such a thing as a loud eight points, Staley had it. His minutes were limited due to foul trouble but his sequence in the second quarter will be talked about for a while. Staley caught a missed field goal atempt and slammed it home, seemingly coming out of the shadows. SW quickly took the ball out of bounds and pushed it up the floor trying to catch the Wildcats celebrating, only to have Staley meet the shot attempt in the square for the block.” —iHigh.com 12/14/11

Staley is also the quarterback for his high school’s football team.

Blake Simpson | 6’6” | 200 | Power Forward | Moeller HS (fr., so.). Transferring to La Salle HS | Cincinnati OH

About: “Simpson really played well over the weekend by giving maximum effort as a rebounder, scorer, and defender in the paint. He’s still learning the finer points of offensive scoring from the low block but with the way he rebounds offensively it’s easy for him to get his points. Great athlete that can get way above the rim to block shots or finish dunks Simpson is raw but full of potential.”–TripleDoubleProspects.com 5/21/12

“Evaluation: Powerful post man with good athleticism and emerging skills Blake has the potential to be the top big man in Southwest Ohio in 2014. Fairly developed offensive game with solid touch and the ability to score with his back to the basket he is a threat down low at all times. Good rebounder that should continue to consistently produce in this area Simpson uses his wide frame, long arms, and powerful leaping ability to go up and get rebounds with two hands.Bottom Line: As he continues to develop his game Blake will have a chance to be a dominant inside scorer and rebounder at LaSalle. Already getting Division I interest, he should be a priority young recruit for low-majors at this point.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 8/26/11

“While he didn’t have his best weekend finishing plays around the rim Simpson was very effective as an athletic 6’6 big man that can really run the floor, while still having strength to be an enforcer inside. Cincinnati LaSalle’s Simpson needs to continue to improve his shooting touch and post game but his physical tools and great effort made him an impact prospect this weekend.”–TripleDoubleProspects.com 4/29/12

While the Moeller post didn’t have his best day finishing around the rim CPHR was extremely impressed with how hard he played on every possession. Showing off some new moves, and a better understanding of how to use his power, around the block Simpson was able to get his shot’s at will and scored off second (and even third) efforts several times. Being forced to sometimes guard smaller players and sometimes guard bigger players he showed great toughness in slowing his man down. —CincyPrepHoopsReport 10/31/11

RaChaun Martin | 5’10” | 160 | Guard | Thurgood Marshall HS | Dayton OH

About: “Martin is continuing to prove to all the doubters wrong, and prove to scouts that he is one of the truly elite PG’s in Ohio’s 2014 class. With blazing speed, a tight handle, and a competitive mindset Martin was the best player on the floor in tight games with the Cincinnati Lakers and Fire Select. If he keeps on shooting the ball at a high level he could contend for the top guard spot in his class.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 6/3/12

“The breakout player in 2014 over the last two weekends, and especially this past weekend, has been 5’9 Dayton Thurgood Marshall point guard RaChaun Martin. A competitive and super fast playmaker that is as good of an on ball defender as we’ve seen in his class in the state Martin can turn defense into offense quickly. With the ball in his hands he’s really good scoring it in transition and can make plays for others off the pick and roll. He should continue to grow and will develop his jumper more but he already has the look of a mid-major recruit. Martin is the kind of player that will win games with the little things he does and on the big stage this past weekend he showed the ability to take a game over with all double-figure outings, including back to back twenty point games in comeback wins.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 4/29/12

“Evaluation: “Competitive and poised young point guard with a mature floor game. Martin is a very good on ball defender that uses his quickness and anticipation to hound opposing ballhandlers and he is a player that is committed to the defensive end of the floor. Offensively he is a pass-first point guard that is good at making decisions at fast speeds in transition. A relatively high IQ player Martin is able to get his team into offense in the half-court and has the ability to create shots for his teammates off the drive and kick. Most of his scoring comes in transition as he has the full-court speed to get ahead to defenders and finish around the rim. Martin is able to get in the lane and draw fouls or float the ball in around the rim but still needs to continue to refine his jumpshot which at this point is not reliable enough for defenders to try and crowd him.”

“Bottom Line: Hard to tell at this point where Martin will fit in at the college level. He has passing and ballhandling skills that translate nicely to the next stage as he shows a high IQ and a competitive demeanor. Size might be the determining factor here, if Martin can get to 6’0 then he will have a very nice chance to become a Division I player.”–TripleDoubleProspects.com 3/20/12

With the ball in his hands he’s really good scoring it in transition and can make plays for others off the pick and roll. He should continue to grow and will develop his jumper more but he already has the look of a mid-major recruit. Martin is the kind of player that will win games with the little things he does and on the big stage this past weekend he showed the ability to take a game over with all double-figure outings, including back to back twenty point games in comeback wins” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 4/29/12

“Martin is continuing to prove to all the doubters wrong, and prove to scouts that he is one of the truly elite PG’s in Ohio’s 2014 class. With blazing speed, a tight handle, and a competitive mindset Martin was the best player on the floor in tight games with the Cincinnati Lakers and Fire Select. If he keeps on shooting the ball at a high level he could contend for the top guard spot in his class.” —TripleDoubleProspects 6/3/12

“Talented and flashy guard who can pass the ball or use his blazing speed to get to the rim.” –-TripleDoubleProspects.com 9/26/11

Martin Jones | 6’3” | 185 | Shooting Guard | Winton Woods HS | Cincinnati OH

About: ““The Microwave” can heat up fast, evidenced by a stretch on Sunday where he scored 8 points in less then 20 seconds of play, and is capable of routinely putting up big offensive numbers. A pure scorer that can shoot the ball from deep or put it on the floor and pull-up from mid-range Jones is a smooth scoring wing. He doesn’t have bad size or athleticism and is just scratching the surface of his wing potential after previously playing some forward.  The 6’2 Jones, who goes to Cincinnati Winton Woods, is a name that college coaches at the low-major level should start to target.” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 4/29/12

“The Winton Woods product has gone from undersized PF to big SG in just a matter of months. Possibly the most consistent scorer in the entire sophomore division this weekend Martin was able to score from all three levels. A very good set shooter who showed an improved mid-range pull up game, CPHR was most impressed with his improved handle that allowed him to score around the rim. If Jones can consistently guard quicker perimeter players, as he did this weekend, he should be an impact guard in the FAVC as a sophomore. ” —CincyPrepHoopsReport 10/31/11

“Winton Woods SF: Jones has put himself squarely on the map as a small forward as he has transitioned from a skilled post to a big strong wing. Jones was stroking the three ball all weekend and is starting to show some ballhandling ability as well. If he keeps up his current level of play expect Martin to play a big role at Winton Woods this season.” —CincyPrepHoopsReport 10/23/11

Victor Dorsey | 6’7” | 205 | Power Forward | St. Vincent-St. Mary’s HS | Akron OH

About: “Evaluation: Long post player with developing strength and good mobility for his size. Vic can step outside and shoot the ball all the way out to the three point line or go inside and use his skilled arsenal of moves, with good foot work, to score the ball around the rim. Adept passer from the high post who is comfortable facing up. High level rebounder and hard worker inside who started for a State Championship team as a freshman at SVSM. Notes: Should be a hotly recruited prospect with his inside skills and ability to step out and shoot the basketball. ” —TripleDoubleProspects.com 9/6/11
