Bryan Antoine – Ranney School

Villanova commit Bryan Antoine proves time and time again why he is one of the best prospects in the nation and it was much of the same at the Fall Showcase. Antoine is as elite of a shooter as they come and a freak athlete along with that. Antoine is expected to be the Ranney School’s top scorer in how he can convert from the field in multiple ways. He has also made strides on the defensive end, which will be needed in order for the Ranney School to go far this year.

Noah Collier – Westtown School

There have been some questions about Noah Collier’s scoring ability going into this event and he answered a lot of them this past weekend. Collier scored 20 points in possibly the biggest game of the weekend against Roselle Catholic. He has put on muscle since AAU season as well, which has helped him become more productive on the offensive end. Seth Berger and the Westtown School will rely on him this year to have more performances like these.

Max Edwards – PHD Basketball

One of the most under the radar prospects in attendance was class of 2020 guard Max Edwards. Edwards suited up for PHD Basketball (CT) and was dominant throughout. He is a big-time athlete who makes an impact in a variety of ways. Edwards is definitely deserving of more attention and should see his recruitment take a jump this season at Bunnell High School (CT).

Elijah Hutchins-Everett – Immaculate Conception

One of the first words that have been always tossed around with Elijah Hutchins-Everett is potential. With his size and flashes on the offensive end, you need to give a prospect like him a chance. His performance at the Fall Showcase was very encouraging and it looks like Hutchins-Everett has turned the corner. He knocked down shots from deep consistently and found success near the basket. Immaculate Conception (N.J.) could make a deep run this year with someone as talented as him.  

Chereef Knox – Imhotep Charter

Imhotep Charter (P.A.) had two key players out due to injury in Xavier commit Dahmir Bishop and Maryland commit Donta Scott. That didn’t matter to Knox as he led his team to two big wins at the Fall Showcase. From freshman year to senior year, Knox’s game has developed a great deal as he has gone from once being a strong defensive presence to now being a serious offensive threat. Knox is a crucial piece to Imhotep Charter’s success this season.

Taj Thweatt – Wildwood Catholic

Junior power forward Taj Thweatt from Wildwood Catholic (N.J.) has emerged as one of the top prospects in New Jersey for his class. Thweatt has always been a freak athlete but is now developing into more than that. He is starting to knock down shots from the perimeter and become more of an overall scorer. He makes a huge difference on the defensive end and complements class of 2020 guard Jahlil White.

Alejandro Vasquez – The Patrick School

The Patrick School guard Alejandro Vasquez heads into this season with a big role. The senior guard put together a couple of strong performances at the Fall Showcase. He brings a lot of toughness and has a knack for getting to the basket. He, Al-Amir Dawes and Alexander Rice will all complement each other well in that they each bring something different to the table. Head coach Chris Chavannes will count on him to have big games like these this upcoming high school season.
