2024 Forwards to Keep an Eye On at the #S16

A look at some of the 2024 forwards to keep an eye on at this weekend’s #S16 at Insports and
the surrounding area of CT.

George Turkson 6’ 7 (Mass Rivals/Bradford Christian): the Texas A&M commit is a high energy
defender at the forward position that changes the outcome of games. The highly ranked national
prospect has earned his reputation for his active hands on defense, rim protection, and elite
defensive versatility.

Chike Ndefo 6’ 7 (Crown/Vermont Academy): The forward has shown an improving jumper
coming into his game, as the forward has been more known for his driving and finishing abilities.
He holds multiple division one offers from Sierra, Fairfield, and Bryant.

Jaydon Schuler 6’ 6 (Connecticut Elite/Conard): Schuler is a lengthy forward that does a good
job of holding down the paint on defense. Gets up to block shots, has good touch around the
basket in the post, and gets to his spots from three-point range.

Andrew Alekseyenko 6’ 7 (Baystate Jags/Rivers): The Jaguars forward is a threat to attack the
basket off one dribble. Uses shot fakes and hesitations to create space for drives and can finish
acrobatically around the rim into contact. Adds floor stretching capabilities from downtown as
well. Won the NEPSAC Class B title with Rivers this past season.

Greyson Trubia 6’ 7 (Rens United/Suffield Academy): Stretch forward that has great touch from
long range. Attacks defenders around the basket and finishes above the rim. Defends the
basket well on defense and can get out quickly in transition as a rim-runner.

Luke Lisciandra 6 '5 (ASA Select/Medfield): A sleeper prospect out of the MIAA. The forward
does a great job of creating space with his handle to create shot opportunities, but also finds
open teammates and makes high IQ plays throughout the game.

Nick Scandura 6’ 6 (BCRI/Barrington): Scandura is a point forward that is known for his ability to
handle the ball, make plays for his teammates, and can knock down shots from long-range. Is
switchable on defense with his quicker footwork and high motor.

Antoine Crosson 6’ 5 (LIT/Wareham): The big-bodied forward can take over a game in the paint.
He uses his body to bully defenders and cleans up the glass at will. He also protects the basket
on defense keeping defenders in front of him and forcing driving attempts to a halt.

John Brigham 6’ 9 (BABC/Dexter Southfield): The large forward is a high IQ player that can go
to work on the glass from the post, but also finds open teammates from the paint. Physical
defender that makes his presence felt.
