Standout Prospects

Trey Langford, HB Beal (6’2” SF, 2011)

A hard-nosed player on both ends of the floor, Trey gives maximum effort for his coach. Despite having some tough matchups with much bigger post players, he adjusted himself well to grab rebounds and cause some turnovers. He showcased his athleticism as a slasher, as Beal demonstrated their spread offence in the final. While not a major scoring threat, Trey brings impressive intangibles that many players aren’t willing to provide. With regular starters Chavaun Miller-Bennett and Josh Mayorga unavailable for the final, Trey was a deserving choice for Tournament MVP honours.

Hamid Nessek, ACMT (5’10” SG, 2012)

While many Hamilton area schools are in rebuilding mode with the departure of the Class of 2010, Hamid stood out as one of the exciting young gems in the city. Great speed, agility, and a soft shooting touch are all qualities he possesses, while capable of playing the point or more of a scoring wing option. Reportedly holding a 95% average in class, he is among the best student-athlete combinations in Ontario.

D’Adrian Allen, Brampton Centennial (6’7” C, 2013)

Under the radar is this rising young post player. D’Adrian has a good body frame that has room to become more powerful, and more intimidating, as he continues to develop. While his back-to-the-basket skills are still developing, he has good hands, and showed a nice passing touch to find open teammates. He is getting some good coaching from Elias Pahis, a former post player himself at the University of Toronto. If he gets a mean streak, watch out.

Connor Crocker, Sir Allan MacNab (6’2” SG, 2014)

A certified zone-buster, Connor put on some big-time shooting displays for his hometown fans. With a lanky frame and a nice high release, he can stop and pop with the ball or find him in the corners ready to catch-and-shoot. He is part of a fantastic group of MacNab youngsters.

Francis Kiapway, Sir Allan MacNab (6’2” SG, 2014)

While Francis has been given considerable hype over the past year, this was my first chance to see him in a system-oriented basketball game. In both games, he showed some excellent instincts to go with his great athleticism. His explosive first step off the dribble and ability to change speeds with the ball were impressive. He feels comfortable handling the ball like a point guard, so he could conceivably become a solid combo guard option in the years to come. A very good first impression.
