Kyle Duke, The Rock School
The seasoned 6-foot-3 point guard brings a wealth of experience and is quite battle tested, having played against 15 McDonald’s All Americans the past three years. Duke’s elite level passing and witty, high IQ facilitating is the component which differentiates him from other point guards.
He’s got innate timing and a knack for that fireball assist. A fluid athlete, Duke has an above-rim game to supplement his outside shooting and hard driving abilities.
Duke averaged 19 PPG and four assists and two steals as a junior. The Canada native will be called upon to seize the leadership reins as a senior.
AJ Neal, West Oaks Academy
The shot-making Class of 2021 guard scored 22 points during a recent win over the GA Canes. He’s always been a high level shooter, having played varsity since he was a seventh grader. Having packed muscle on, the battle tested guard has developed an adeptness at finishing through traffic and in crafty fashion.
He will inherit a leadership role for a West Oaks Academy team which will again be in the national spotlight, especially with Wesley Cardet and the Bewley twins all transferring to the traditional SIAA power.
Daniel Ntambwe, Central Pointe Christian Academy
The 6-foot-5 lefty brings a versatile game on both sides of the court. He’s capable of guarding the 1-4 and has beyond his years strength and a build that is already college ready as a 2023 prospect.
The native of the Congo runs the floor well and is an adept shot-maker.
With how well he finishes, he’s got the potential to be a high percentage scorer. While he is still young and needs to develop his skill set, Ntambwe will look to play a pivotal role for a team which recently bid adieu to hot-shooting guard Victor Rosa (FGCU), pinpoint passer Luis Rolon (FGCU), and bigs such as Jonathon Aybar (North Florida) and Modibo Sanogo (Florida Southwestern).
Jabez Thomas, Southeastern (JUCO)
At 6-foot-8 and having authored a breakout year at S4G Academy in North Carolina, the Rochester, N.Y. native has the potential to be a double double threat. A high level finisher and with freakish athleticism, Thomas scored 19 points and tore down 16 rebounds against The Skill Factory (GA) and prized 7-foot-2 recruit Kai Sotto.
Thomas also realized his potential during a 39-point performance against ABI. With his ability to snatch rebounds and also attack and finish above the rim in extravagant fashion, Thomas oozes of upside at one of the country’s most prominent junior colleges.
Hasahn Abdul-Hakim, Santa Fe (JUCO)
At 6-foot-8 and with his ability to handle the ball like a guard, the Canada native should offer immediate contributions in one of the country’s most competitive JUCO landscapes.
Abdul-Hakim is a fluid athlete who finishes above the rim with ease and can score it as all three levels. With his wingspan he is a multi positional defender.
This much was evident when he erupted for a 24-point performance against IMG Academy back in January.
Louis Bleechmore, Harcum College (JUCO)
The 6-foot-6 wing spent the entire summer in the gym, defying the limitations of Covid. He continues to increase aspects such as his power, strength, and skill set.
A bouncy and freakish athlete, the Australia native is capable of attacking the baseline and finishing dunks only rarefied athletes are capable of.
Bleechmore’s shot making and ability to manufacture points in a variety of ways improved incrementally in his prep year at Scotland Campus Sports. With his ability to finish through contact and work ethic, expect his upside to continue with one year of JUCO.
Bryce Harris, Putnam Science
The 6-foot-6 manchild has the college ready body as one of the more under valued MM prospects in the Class of 2021. As a versatile ring who can put the ball on the deck and shoot it consistently, playing on yet again a national contender of Putnam Science’s magnitude will likely bolster his recruitment.
The Brentwood, N.Y. native has a crafty and ambidextrous finishing ability and the college ready body that will enable him to finish through contact and the 7-footers who will surely await him at the ensuing level.
Perry Robinson, Central Pointe Christian Academy Post Grad
The 6-foot-7 Robinson had a monster performance playing for the GA Canes at the recent OTR Sweet 16, turning in 36 points. Robinson is a bouncy athletic finisher who brings a toughness and ability to score hustle points and stickbacks.
His ability to shoot the ball from 16-feet and from beyond the arc are unique facets of his game. A post graduate year will go a long way in giving the under the radar prospect exposure and a number of Division-1 opportunities.
Devin Rivera, Scotland Campus
The 5-foot-10 point guard from Brooklyn is shifty and knows how to score it in a variety of ways. He scored 26 points during a noteworthy performance against Olympus Prep (NJ) during the Scotland Invitational, displaying deep range and a natural feel for facilitating.
Rivera had several games of 15+ points and six or more assists during his senior year. He will be flushed into a more prominent role as a post graduate who has the wealth of experience.
Marc Alry Henry, Miami Triple Threat Prep
The native of Haiti has natural athleticism and showed flashes last season, turning in momentum rolling dunks and scoring on the drive.
He’s got the college ready body and ability to guard multiple positions. As he continues to develop his skill set and work on his perimeter game, he’s got the potential to be a sleeper.
Keith Capuano, Hastings
The Class of 2024 prospect showed promise as an eighth grader playing significant minutes on a 23-2 Hastings team, which wound up winning the Sectional championship to end a 21-year title drought and ultimately went undefeated in the post season.
Capuano’s attention to detail and ability to score hustle points and grab boards inside pumps promise into a young and experienced team which has lofty expectations to repeat as champions to repeat as champions under veteran head coach Bob Delle Bovi.
