NEP Midwest Showcase Class of 2020 Prospect Review

Ramone Woods 5’9 PG Chicago IL 

Woods entered the event with plenty of hype coming off strong summer and fall camp apperences at NEO, In The Gym Hoops and Ty Kish’s Middle School Alumni Event in Indy. Woods backed up the hype by flashing his dog like mentality on the floor en route to easy buckets for himself and also looked great facilitating to teamates on the break and in the half court. Woods makes up for his lack of size with heart, toughness and determination.

Harrison Vickers 6’6 SF St. Louis MO

Vickers is a prospect who could be primed for a breakout junoir campaign at chaminade this season. Vickers has a nice frame and at 6’5-6’6 nice size for the SF position. Vickers is a solid athlete who rebounds well and finishes above the rim with authority.

Breven McMullen 6’6 WG Desloge MO

McMullen is a prospect on the rise in Missouri’s 2020 class and as a regional prospect within college coaching circles. McMullen is a skilled talent who can really shoot the ball from midrange out to 22ft with ease. McMullen has showed rapid improvement over the past year and look for him to be a breakout star this HS season.

Jalen Boyd 6’1 G St. Louis MO

Boyd was very effective running on the break and finishing in transition. Boyd also showed the ability to hit pull ups from the elbow and midrange area at a nice rate.

Amir Spann 6’4 SF Mt. Vernon MO 

Spann was very active all camp using his strong frame to get buckets around the rim and showed nice potential as a multipositional defender.

Rashad McDaniels 6’0 PG St. Louis MO

McDaniels is a D1 target that had a good summer running with MO Team Carroll and has continued his strong play heading into the season. McDaniels didn’t have the best shooting day but looked great as a facilitator seting up teamates for easy buckets on the break with smart pitch ahead passes and lobs. McDaniels should be primed for a statement year.

Cole Miller 6’5 F St. Louis MO

Miller is a fundamentally sound player who knows spacing and how to play his position. Miller ran the floor well and capitalized on putbacks and dropoff passes around the basket.

Carsen Parker 6’6 SG Nashville IL 

Parker has a great frame at around 6’6” and nice shooting touch to go along with it. Parker was able to take advantage of limited opportunities when called upon and displyed an nice feel for the game.

Justin Bachar 6’0 G Virginia IL

Bachar is a solid combo guard prospect who can score in bunches in transition and also knock down open 3s. Bachar also showed promise on the defensive side of the ball.

Ryan Kalkbrenner  7’0 F St. Louis MO

Possibly the biggest stock booster of the entire event coming in as a relatively unknown prospect, Kalkbrenner turned heads all day with his impressive play showing skill and shooting touch to go with a great frame that is still developing. Kalkbrenner runs the floor well and looked great in pick and roll action. D1 coaches will love this kid once they get a chance to see what he can do this year.
