Hoop Group Top 100 Event Recap
The Hoop Group came into New England this weekend for two of their prestigious Top 100 Showcases. The New England Top 100 took place on Saturday at Wentworth College in Boston while the New England Academic Top 100 was held on Sunday at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. Here’s a look at who stood out through the full weekend of action with the Hoop Group:
Arkel Ager, St. Joseph’s (CT) – The top prospect on hand on Sunday, Ager showed both the skill and physical tools necessary to emerge into a priority recruit at the division I level.
Tarchee Brown, Rockville (CT) – The six-foot scoring guard is quick off the bounce with a handle to match, allowing him to make plays both in the open floor and half-court.
Michael Coffey, Monroe-Woodbury (NY) – A crafty southpaw scoring guard who just has a knack for putting points on the board, Coffey is unorthodox but very productive.
Harrison Dunne-Polite, Trinity Pawling (NY) – A long and athletic junior forward with a high upside, Dunne-Polite was one of the better long-term prospects in the building on Sunday.
Jack Dwyer, Burke Catholic (NY) – He’s the epitome of a pure point guard. He’s tough and hard-nosed with a distinctive pass first style that makes all those around him better.
Jarvis Garrett, Notre Dame Prep (MA) – He’s going to be a name on the rise this season as he’s not just the best available point guard in New England, but perhaps the entire northeast region.
Sean Hoehn, Morristown (NJ) – A highly talented young player with a nice fundamental base to his game, Hoehn has a bright future ahead of him in the New Jersey high school ranks.
Curtell & Curtis Hyman, New Britain (CT) – The senior frontcourt tandem is one of the better kept secrets in the CIAC, but don’t expect that to be the case for long as they’re poised to make big noise this season for the Hurricanes.
Malik James, Notre Dame Prep (MA) – James looks more explosive than ever with increased speed in the open floor and an extra bit of burst to his first step, making him a consistent playmaking presence.
Tyrique Jones, Bloomfied (CT) – The junior forward showed why he’s an intriguing prospect moving forward with his length, athleticism, and flashes of playmaking ability around the rim.
Tyonne Malone, Putnam Tech (MA) – The southpaw sophomore put points on the board in every which way, both Saturday and Sunday alike, and was virtually impossible to stop at both events.
Owen McLeod, Bishop Ahr (NJ) – Another New Jersey native who made the trip to Connecticut to prove himself among the academic elite, McLeod made a series of high level plays in the open court.
Justin Stewart, Putnam Tech (MA) – A slightly undersized guard with a big game and well rounded skill set, Stewart was one of the more consistent guards at Sunday’s Academic Top 100.
