The Marshall County Hoopfest Began Today
One of the best high school basketball tournaments in the nation tipped-off today in Western Kentucky. Some of the games will be televised on ESPNU and ESPN, including one going on right now. Others can be watched on ESPN3. Click here for a full schedule.
As always, there’s tons of elite talent in the tournament, but in the Class of 2016, they’re all the elite recruits NOT coming to Kentucky. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t younger players that could be Wildcats. Here’s a short list of who you should keep an eye on in the Class of 2017.
- Jarred Vanderbilt, 6’8″ small forward, #6 player in the nation according to 247 composite rankings. De’Aaron Fox’s AAU teammate plays for Victory Prep and has a scholarship offer from the Cats.
- Trevon Duval, 6’3″ point guard, the consensus #1 player in the Class of 2017.
- Billy Preston, 6’10” power forward, #7 player in the nation according to 247 composite rankings. Preston is teammates with Duval at API.
- John Petty, 6’5″ small forward, #16 player according to 247 composite rankings. Petty has an offer from Coach Cal and visited for Big Blue Madness. His team takes on API Sunday at 1:30.
Wenyan Gabriel Started His Senior Season
UK signee started his season for Wilbraham and Monson with a casual double-double. The 6’9 5-star forward had 13 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks. Not too shabby, but I’m sure we’ll see bigger numbers throughout the year.
A.J. Rose Received an In-Home Visit
It technically wasn’t an in-home visit. Chad Scott and Vince Marrow made the trek to Northern Ohio to watch 2016 commit A.J. Rose’s basketball game. Rose had a break-away dunk in front of a sold-out gymnasium to help his Garfield Heights team win 60-55.
Kash Daniel Wins Gatorade Player of the Year
As you probably saw on the site earlier today, the mountains’ finest won Kentucky’s Gatorade Player of the Year. The only award left for Daniel is Mr Football, and it’s going to be awfully hard for anyone to take it from him.
