2016 Player Profiles
A.J. BurginClass: 2021
School/ Club: Roosevelt MS/ Gamepoint
Wingspan: 5-11 1/2
Notes: Long, Consummate floor general makes right play with the pass, solid ball handler and strong on-ball defender.
Aaron WilliamsClass: 2017
School/ Club: San Ysidro HS
Vertical: 31.9 in
Notes: The 16-year-old wing type has an impressive frame, good length and broad shoulders. He has made strides attacking off the dribble and can finish efficiently with his right hand. Possesses a decent mid-range skill-set, albeit with an unorthodox set-shot release. He hit a three in the proceedings, but he will need to consistently knock down the perimeter shot to keep defenders honest.
Abdin MohammedClass: 2017
School/ Club: Sweetwater/ Next Generation
Height: 6-2 1/2
Notes: Mohammed possesses decent athleticism and an improving skill set on the wing. His jump shot is streaky, and his handle has room for improvement. Plays hard on both ends, and rebounds well for his size. Needs a JUCO stint to improve skill set.
Abdul Noor BeyahClass: 2021
School/ Club: Hillsdale MS/ SoCal Magic
Notes: Speedy, athletic undersized PG impacts the game on both ends with his quickness, ability to attack the rim and get under the ball handler and force turnovers.
Adam KneesClass: 2020
School/ Club: Torrey Pines/ San Diego All-Stars
Wingspan: 6-0 1/2
Notes: Combo guard has good size and a crafty handle on the perimeter. Solid shooter.
Adrian Calderon (2020 Select MVP)Class: 2020
School/ Club: St. Augustine/ College Bound
Wingspan: 5-6 1/2
Notes: Calderon is a high-IQ point guard who is an efficient scorer and a high-level passer. Despite pedestrian athleticism, Calderon is able to get to the rim regularly due to understanding of attack angles, footwork.
Adrian leeClass: 2018
School/ Club: Castle Park HS
Vertical: 28 in
Notes: One of the revelations of the event, Lee is a intriguing face-up four/ wing prospect with range out to the college three. His handle has improved on the perimeter, and he has solid court vision in the halfcourt. Lee must improve his athleticism and his ability to finish thru contact, but has a ton of upside.
Ajani KennedyClass: 2017
School/ Club: Rancho Verde/ Team Eleate
Wingspan: 6-8 1/2
Notes: Athletic lefty projects to be a nice face-up four at the next level. He has a smooth shot from the perimeter and, when engaged, can attack and score off the drive. He isn't nearly as assertive enough as he needs to be on the offensive end, and needs to improve handling and scoring with his off hand, but his ceiling is high if he improves those flaws. Low-D1/ D2 prospect
Akil ParrishClass: 2018
School/ Club: Morse HS
Notes: A growth spurt has pushed Parrish to nearly 6-5, and made him an intriguing prospect to follow. A solid shooter from the perimeter, Parrish needs to take the next step in improving his slashing from the wing and finishing through contact, which could improve with added strength.
Alex DumasClass: 2017
School/ Club: Lincoln/ Cougars
Wingspan: 6-2 1/2
Notes: Slick ball-handling guard knifes his way to the basket off the crossover and scores through contact. His shot has a flat trajectory, but he is an accurate shooter off the catch and off of the dribble, though the lack of trajectory could be problematic against longer defenders. Could contribute at JUCO level right away.
Alex WadeClass: 2021
School/ Club: Horizon Prep/ SD Select
Notes: High-IQ point guard is a nifty passer and a crafty ball handler. While his shot wasn't falling Saturday, he shoots it confidently with range.
Amari GreenClass: 2018
School/ Club: Helix/ Gamepoint
Vertical: 31.1 in
Notes: Green is an intriguing lead guard prospect. He is an assertive penetrator with good quickness and his thick frame allows him to absorb contact and finish around the basket. Green is also an excellent decision maker in transition. Green is also a very strong on-ball defender. He still needs to tone up his frame, but a prospect to watch.
Andrew ThomtonClass: 2017
School/ Club: Rancho Bernardo/ San Diego All Stars
Notes: The big face-up four is a workhorse on the interior who can score from close range and rebounds on both sides of the floor. Also adept at stepping out and hitting mid-range shot. D3 PF prospect.
Anthony KoroClass: 2019
School/ Club: Steele Canyon HS
Vertical: 25.6 in
Notes: Solid combo guard is a confident offensive player. He is a solid ball handler and shot-maker, and an improving shot creator for others. Should have a solid year at Steele Canyon.
Anthony MendozaClass: 2018
School/ Club: Bonita Vista/ SD Chaos
Notes: Up-and-coming combination guard is a crafty scorer and a solid passer. Not the fleetest of foot, Mendoza relies on good footwork to get to the basket. Solid 3-point shooter. Mendoza's size, length and IQ make him an intriguing PG prospect that D2 schools should follow.
Austin CookClass: 2020
School/ Club: Damien/ Earl Watson Elite
Notes: Highly skilled "point forward" handles, scores and passes deftly, and his strong frame allows him to attack with great pace in the halfcourt, where he is very adept at setting up his mid-range pull-up jump shot. He needs to continue to improve his explosiveness off the dribble and on his pull-up, which sometimes lacks lift and leaves it short. Overall, a high-level prospect at this stage.
Baturay KoyuncuClass: 2017
School/ Club: Scripps Ranch/ Coastal Elite
Notes: Crafty scoring guard is a strong shooter from the perimeter when his feet are set, but has also made strides in his ability to attack the basket off the dribble. Doesn't possess ideal length, and is a pedestrian on-ball defender. Very strong Division 3 prospect.
Ben DaughertyClass: 2018
School/ Club: La Jolla Country Day/ California Bearcats Select
Vertical: 26.8 in
Notes: Crafty, albeit undersized shooting guard can knock down shots from deep off the catch. He sometimes struggles scoring against longer defenders and finishing over them at the rim. Still, he's made positive strides and had a nice growth spurt since last year.
Blake SeitsClass: 2017
School/ Club: Ramona/ Coastal Elite
Wingspan: 6-4 1/2
Notes: Rapidly improving shooting guard is an impressive shooter with a quick release and deep range on his shot. He has grown to 6-4 and improved his ball handling and defense considerably over the year. Strong Division 2 prospect.
Brady WilliamsClass: 2020
School/ Club: San Marcos/ And 1 Academy
Notes: Hard-working point guard makes up for his lack of ideal size with toughness on both ends and a knack for getting into the teeth of the defense and scoring or distributing to others. He is a willing rebounder and a solid on-ball defender. One of the better point guards in the 2020 class.
Brandon EdwardsClass: 2017
School/ Club: San Ysidro HS
Vertical: 29.1 in
Notes: Fairly long and athletic lefty wing is a solid slasher and finisher going to his left. Edwards does a good job rebounding on the offensive boards. If he improves his right hand and his perimeter shooting, he could be a solid college player.
Brendan PerryClass: 2021
School/ Club: Oak Crest MS/ Gamepoint
Notes: Smooth wing did a good job playing up in the 2020 select game, scoring off the dribble in transition an hitting shots in the half court. His release needs to get quicker to get shot off against defenders.
Brenton BellClass: 2018
School/ Club: Kearny/ San Diego Prospects
Height: 5-8 1/2
Vertical: 34.7 in
Notes: Compact point guard is as quick as a thought, and can get into the teeth of the defense at will, but must improve decision making off the dribble in order to maximize his effectiveness.
Brogan PietrociniClass: 2019
School/ Club: Carlsbad/ Coastal Elite
Height: 6-3 1/2
Vertical: 31.9 in
Notes: Face-up four man is a solid athlete, scorer from both inside and midrange, and rebounder. Solid motor; plays hard on both ends.
Bryce PopeClass: 2019
School/ Club: Torrey Pines/ Gampeoint
Notes: Crafty scoring guard has made a big jump with his ability to score off the dribble, which complements his prowess as a knockdown shoooter. Much of projection will depend on how much more he will grow, as he is most effective off the ball.
CJ McMillanClass: 2021
School/ Club: Granger MS/ SD Sabers
Notes: Versatile wing/forward type has prototypical size and length at this stage, and is a solid rim protector on defense. Offensively he is a tweener; his face-up game will improve with increased lateral quickness. Solid shooter.
Cameron CapitoClass: 2020
School/ Club: Mission Hills/ And 1 Academy
Notes: A feisty defender; Capito makes things happen with his high-motor, whether diving after loose balls or rebounding against taller players. While offensively limited, Capito makes up for it by playing hard for his team.
Cameron BarryClass: 2018
School/ Club: West Hills/ Coastal Elite
Height: 5-10 3/4
Notes: The quintessential coach's son, Barry is a high-IQ floor general who makes others better with his passing. He makes crisp passes that find the shooter's pockets, allowing them to shoot in rhythm. Barry is also a solid shooter himself, though he needs more consistency from behind the arc. Solid Division 3 PG prospect.
Carson CookClass: 2021
School/ Club: Mavs Elite
Notes: The younger brother of Graham Cook is a solid prospect in his own right. A long, crafty combo guard prospect who operates better with the ball in his hands, where he can run the pick and roll and make plays for himself and others. As he develops, he needs to improve finishing plays through contact, which will come as he gets stronger.
Carter PloushaClass: 2019
School/ Club: Carlsbad/ Gamepoint
Notes: Plousha possesses a great frame and is fluid in transition, finishing plays at the rim. In order to fully realize his potentional, his motor needs to improve on both ends as he appeared disengaged during the game.
