Report on So Cal Fall Senior Showcase
The 2nd annual So Cal Fall Senior Showcase was held Saturday, September 29th at Cerritos College in Norwalk. Here is a report on the event.
6’9 Erik Grajales of ASI Prep Academy 2019
Grajales is a fairly athletic five man with long arms. He has versatile all-around skills: he’s an ok passer, has a nice one-bounce drive from the high post, he can dribble operates on the block and has an ok jump hook. He is also a capable rebounder. Grajales does have upside and is a potential Division 1 prospect.
6’2 SG Jazerie Hoggatts of ABE Prep Academy 2019
Hoggatts is a strong and athletic two guard with long arms who can score in a variety of ways. He has a pull up game in the half court and can also finish on the drive. He shoots it ok with 3 range and has a jump hook on the block. Hoggatts is also a capable defender.
6’7 CF Bryce Johnson of St Mary’s HS 2019 (Port City 17U)
Johnson is a combo forward who is an effective scorer inside and out. He has a consistent motor and a solid feel for the game. He is a solid defender and rebounder as well. Johnson is the type of player you want on your side and is a sure-fire Division I prospect.
6’6 CF Riel Morant of Scale Prep 2019
Morant is a strong and active combo forward who prefers to play facing the basket. He’s a decent ball handler who can get to the basket on the drive. He moves ok without the ball and can shoot it with 3 point range. Morant is also a capable rebounder who does pursue the ball on the glass.
6’2 G/W Yohance Sharpe of Littlerock HS 2019 (AV Wolfpack)
Sharpe is an athletic guard/wing with burst. He is an excellent driver with a solid first step. He also shows the ability to pull up both in transition and in the half court. Sharpe’s need at this point is to prove himself as a perimeter shooter.
6’2 PG Jayden Winfrey of Redondo Union HS 2019 (Seahawks)
Winfrey had an impressive performance making plays for himself and others. He’s an athletic one-man with solid ball handling and passing skills and he pushes the breaks consistently. He shoots it ok with 3-range and has a floater. Winfrey needs to develop some bulk/strength to help prepare him for next level.
6’2 SG Matt Solomon of Newbury Park HS, 2019 (Team Independent)
Solomon was out-standing at this event! He is a competitive and talented two guard who is deceptively athletic (has very nice lift). He shoots it fairly well with 3 range. He has a sneaky good first step and goes hard to the basket on the drive. He is a capable defender and rebounder as well. Solomon clearly put himself on the radar with his excellent performance. Don’t sleep on him low majors!
