By HoopMIA , 08/29/20, 7:30PM EDT



Jordan Cooke 5’10 2021 (SOH Elite/Miami Country Day)-Cooke is a hard nosed lead guard that plays the game with great pace. He is an efficient scorer that has a great arsenal of floaters, runners, and crafty finishes around the basket. The Country Day point guard always produces and has a very polished game. He is a knockdown shooter that has great range. Cooke is one of the best guards in South Florida and is a player college coaches should be monitoring very closely. 


Jacoby Brown 6’6 2021 (Miami Rebels/Miami Palmetto)- The Panthers wing was extremely impressive in the event. He was knocking down three pointers, driving to the basket, and finishing above the rim throughout the weekend. He uses his length to impact the game defensively. Brown was an active shot blocker, rebounder, and was very disruptive in full court pressure defense. He should have a monster season for Palmetto and is an intriguing college prospect. 


R.J. Luis 6’5 2021 (SOH Elite/Columbus HS)-Luis is a three level scorer with a lot of upside. The Explorers guard scores in bunches and has a great mid range game. He is an excellent rebounder and has the ability to be a good defender when he is locked in. He is one the most talented players in South Florida and has the ability to put together a monster senior campaign. Luis has already garnered a lot of Division 1 interest and if he puts together a special senior campaign the interest will surely continue growing. 


Hubertas Pivorius 6’2 2021 (Miami Rebels/Columbus HS)- Pivorius is a knockdown shooter and one of the best shooters in South Florida. He can shoot off the catch, bounce, and off screens. He plays the game with great intelligence and was solid defensively throughout the event. The Explorers standout has improved his ability to attack the rim and is capable of finishing around taller defenders. If he continues to improve his driving ability his value as a college prospect will continue to rise. 


Khamaury McMillan 6’1 2021 (SOH Elite/Miramar HS)-McMillan was a consistent performer for SOH throughout the event. He plays with a great motor and plays with infectious energy. He is a solid ball handler that puts constant pressure on defenses with his penetration. The Patriots’ standout is an excellent on ball defender and will pick up the other team’s best guard 94 feet. If he continues to improve his outside shot his stock will rise significantly throughout his senior campaign. 


Nick Pineyro 6’0 2022 (Miami Hoop School/Miami Palmetto)-Pineyro plays with great energy and is always in attack mode. He is a skilled finisher that gets to the basket at will. The Palmetto guard is a willing defender that puts constant pressure on the ball and will be an impact defender if he can improve his discipline. He is a good athlete that has great burst and speed. If he can improve his decision making and continue to knock down open shots he should have a great year for the Panthers. He will be a breakout candidate in his junior campaign. 


Deshawn Jean-Charles 6’6 2022 (SOH Elite/Miramar HS)-Jean-Charlers is an excellent athlete that uses his athleticism to impact the game on both ends. He was fantastic in Miramar’s state championship run last season and has improved since his sophomore season. He looks more polished on the perimeter and displayed an improved jump shot throughout the event. If he can continue to improve and make the transition to a full time perimeter player he will ascend into being a very special prospect. 


Rome Delgado 6’3 2022 (Jax Fam/Coral Gables)- Delgado was the top performer for the Jax Fam team. He is a very well rounded player that plays the game with a high IQ. He has a lot of skill and is capable of scoring at all three levels. He shot the ball very well throughout the event. He should have an increased role for the Cavaliers this year and has a chance to have a breakthrough season.
