In week two of the Columbus-based Brick League we had the opportunity to run over to Kipp Academy and check out a few kids in the 5th/6th grade division. We were most impressed with Jabrae Bowers, who showed a solid skill set and a great feel for the game. In addition, we intend to keep an eye out for big Jayvon Smoot, who rebounded at a high level and showed a soft touch around the basket.
On Tuesday night, a pair of Buckeye Prep Hoopsters logged in standout performances. Jordan Taylor can not only score the ball, but his court vision and passing skills are starting to draw attention, while Alec Moore excels at driving hard to the basket and finishing at a high rate. Moreover, both players play excellent defense. In terms of long-term potential, Kruz Harper and Brynlie Setmire are two names to remember. Both showed significant upside potential. Below is a complete list of Week II standouts.
