Roc Solid 14U– This young put together group looked very impressive for stretches this past weekend winning the Midwest Invitational beating several solid teams and persevering and winning a close 2 point victory in the semi- finals over Wisconsin United. Playing with basically 5 guards Rock Solid looked like Golden State spreading the floor, taking there opponents off the dribble with all the mis -matches and knocking the 3 down with incredible accuracy. When looking at the team its hard to find anyone around that provides as much outside shooting and perimeter play that this team possesses. Put together for the weekend, it will be interesting to see if this tournament is a platform for things to come.
Ramean Hinton- 2020 Just when you thought you had the class figured out here comes a a player that the city is surely to know. Ramean is a 6/3 multi talented 3/4 who had emerged basically out of know where to be definitely one of the most sought after players in the city. He is ultra competitive, high energy forward that every coach would want on there team. He recently posted games of 30 plus and 15 plus rebounds. He is a kid who goes around the typical bigs and man handles the typical wings, he uses both hands rather well and has the quickest second jump to get a rebound in the class. This is a very intriguing prospect and I look forward to seeing Ramean and further getting a better look, young fella stock is definitely on the rise. Ramean quickly earned an invite to the Top Prospect Showcase Feb. 27th where it will be interesting to see how he stacks up against the other elite players in his class.
KJ Ross- 2020- Here is a young fella who appears to be turning the corner with his game and has several high school coaches who appear to be noticing. The past several weeks K.J. has been playing very well. I’ve always thought young fella had the tools he just needed the confidence, well it appears to be there by leaps and bounds. Young fella came out the first game I saw this past weekend knocking down NBA 3 pointers, hitting the mid-range and finishing in traffic. Young fella came out the gate scoring 10 of the first 12 points in the game, finishing with somewhere around 25. The second game young fella came out again knocking the jump-shot down as if it were a lay-up, he has a different kind of bounce to his game. What I like about KJ is he is a basketball player who plays the total game he takes pride in defending just as he does scoring. KJ stock is on the rise and JrhoopsElite looks forward to following the progress of young fella.
Tim Kennedy 2020-Here comes the big fella, last year I saw Tim he was a raw kid but he had nice size, now I see him and I saw WoW!!! 6/7 yep young fella has stretched out and is starting to use his size. He has gotten considerably better as he runs the court better , his hands have gotten better (not to mention he can touch the backboard with little ease). Young fella stock is definitely on the rise and JrHoopsElite sees Tim getting much better the more he plays against high level competition. Like I always say Guards look better early but bigs catch up in the end. Tim earned an invite to the Top Propsect Showcase Feb 27th.
Caleb Corro 2021- Young Caleb is a savvy point guard who can do a bit of everything, he has a nice outside shot, he sees the floor well and loves to get others involved. Recently Caleb led his school team to the Consolation Championship at the Village Tournament in Oak Park. Caleb is un-assuming at times but shows a nice skill set as he earned an invite and will be in attendance at the Top Prospect Showcase Feb 27th. to compete with the best players in his class. Young fella stock is on the rise as he will be included in our updated rankings.
