10 Fall Stock-Risers in 2019
It’s been a busy fall with the Battle for the Belt set to culminate the Zero Gravity circuit this weekend, both the Elite 75 Frosh/Soph and the Elite 75 Academic Experience having now passed, and numerous open gyms at schools throughout the region.
During that time, we’ve seen some prospects take the next step in their development and others stagnate some. With that in mind, next week we’ll begin to update New England rankings before a larger overhaul in December that will include first year prep products for the first time.
As a precursor to that, here’s a look at ten 2019 prospects that have taken their games to new levels this fall:
Eric Beckett, Tilton – He’s been content to lead the supporting cast for the last two years, but it’s his time to shine now and he’s ready to live up to that. There simply aren’t many more efficient and consistently productive two-way players out there.
Ghared Boyce, St. Thomas More – After putting up over 2,000 career points at Everett High School, Boyce has already shown that he can translate it to higher levels of competition during fall open gyms, and picked up a D1 offer because of it.
Sean Conway, Cushing Academy – After a big high school career at Fairfield Warde, Conway is a proven shot-maker with good perimeter size and the type of game that translates to the next level. His body is making obvious strides too with notable muscle mass having been added in recent months.
Jake Glezen, Loomis Chaffee – A rugged big known for his physical interior style, Glezen is in the best shape of his career right now with newfound cut to his broad frame and some developing face-up skill to match.
Kani Glover, Bridgton Academy – The Catholic Memorial alum is getting rave reviews for his work-ethic, and making consistent strides because of it. He’s transitioning from more of a wing into a true guard, which makes his size and length all the more valuable.
Jordan Kellier, Redemption Christian – A powerful athlete with a chiseled frame, Kellier also has a game that fits the college level because he’s a dynamic roller and powerful finisher with the mobility to defend away from the basket.
Wildens Leveque, Gould Academy – It’s easy to forget how new to the game he still is, but everything is starting to click for the recent South Carolina commit as he looks more athletic with better balance and a consistently improving inside-out skill set.
Jordan McAllister, Worcester Academy – A power guard with a college ready body, McAllister brings it on both ends daily. He attacks off the dribble, has a good mid-range game, plays through contact, and also defends at a high-level.
Tyler Thomas, Williston Northampton – Thomas’ ascension began in the month of July when he wasn’t just scoring the ball in high volume but making tough shots in big moments. That rise has continued this fall according to all reports with growing division I interest.
T.J. Weeks, Woodstock Academy – Previously very young for his class in 2018, Weeks is an extremely long and very athletic lefty who has continued to develop his skill set and become a more reliable spot-up shooter from behind the arc.
