Time to break down the prospects from the DMV….
Wallace Aldridge 5’11” 2019 (North Chesterfield, VA – LC Bird) It will be interesting to see how Aldridge grows into his body as he has a decent skill set for his size and age. He possesses nice touch, sees the floor fairly well, can put it on the floor, and rebounds well for his size. He had 19 rebounds at just 5’11”.
Devin Prevost 6’2” 2017 (Ellicott City, MD – Howard) At 6’2″ with a built frame, Prevost was able to do some productive things around the rim in terms of finishing and cleaning up the glass. He was fairly light on his feet for his size and could put the ball on the floor to go along with it. Prevost was also efficient during camp as he went 9 for 20 from inside the arc and 2 for 4 from outside the arc.

Time to break down the prospects from LA…
Daniel Embry 6’2″ 2017 (Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Rancho Cucamonga) At 6’2″ and with his length, Embry looks every bit like your typical combo guard and plays like one too. Embry is a pretty athletic with and without the ball and shot the ball particularly well during camp going 12 for 23 from behind the arc. His ability to stroke it opened up some things for him going to the basket where he showcased his ability to slash and finish athletically at the rim.
Demetrius Jackson 6’2″ 2018 (Lake Forest, CA – Cerritos) A possible low to mid major sleeper, Jackson did his work from all over the floor with his athleticism, ability to shoot, and ability to make plays for others. He had the looks of a shot maker as he went 9 for 14 from behind the arc and looked confident in his jump shot throughout camp. Additionally, the lift and quickness he had on his shot made him even more appealing. Definitely one to keep an eye over the next year or so.
Matthew Martin 5’9″ 2017 (Fontana, CA – Alta Loma) Martin is a quick point guard that played very solid during camp. He was consistent taking it to the basketball and with his jump shot going 18 for 34 from the field (6 for 11 from inside the arc and 12 for 23 from behind the arc). His toughness accompanied with both his athletic ability and heady play make him a guard that many programs can benefit from.
Oghenewoma Oghenesume 6’2″ 2017 (Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Los Osos) Oghenesume was nothing short of efficient with his play during camp. Oghenesume went the whole camp without turning the ball over and picked his shots wisely as he ended up going 11 for 20 from the field. Additionally, he had some athleticism and length he displayed. Programs could benefit from the way he plays and conducts himself on the court.
Dylan Lee 6’2″ 2017 (San Diego, CA – Helix Charter) Lee did a little bit of everything at camp and did it pretty well. A stat line of 11 for 22 from inside the arc, 8 for 13 from outside the arc, 13 assists to 3 turnovers, and 19 rebounds was one of the better ones if not the best one at camp. He was near the top of every category and has some attributes that could translate well to the next level.
Jaydyn Torres 6’3″ 2017 (San Marino, CA – San Marino) Torres was a big body that was arguably the best rebounder at camp pulling down 31 rebounds. Torres’ bigger body not only allowed him to be successful with this, but it also helped him play an inside/outside game. Defenders bounced off of him going to the basket, he was able to create space, he is light on his feet, and he had a good feel and nice touch out past the three point line.
