Top players in Prep Hoops Chi-Town Tipoff top players!!!!!
BEDFORD PARK, IL: The tipoff was in the beautiful Wintrust Complex by Midway Airport. Lots of top players and an eighth grader who caught everyones attention. Here we go:
JAXON DAVIS, 5'10" point guard, ICE 2024 BLACK DAVIS: I usually don't scout 8th graders but this young man came to me. He played on the 17U team and had a 40 point game, had a 30 and 20 point game that I saw. He's smooth and you can't speed him up. He scores on all three levels, hits threes, gets to the basket, finishes and has a nice mid range floater. The lefty gets where he wants on the court. Plays passing lanes on defense and has quick hands to get steals on the ball. Headed to Warren (Gurnee) next season.
DAVEE FLOWERS, 6'2" combo guard, ICE 2024 BLACK DAVIS: He had a couple of 20 point games, one I saw where he had 22 in one half. Scored from threes, floaters and finishes in the lane. Had a lot of steals off the ball and is an underrated passer. Look for a great senior season at Niles West (Skokie). Could be the Central Suburban South's leading scorer.
RAJAN ROBERTS, 6'2" combo guard, Team Rose 15U 3SSB: Showed a great balance of scoring and assisting in this event. Explosive scorer who makes it look easy scoring on all three levels. Defense is getting better and when he puts that together he'll be more dangerous. Proviso West (Hillside) product.
GIANNI COBB, 6'1" combo guard, Team Rose 17U 3SSB: Explosive scorer off the bounce who hit a bunch of threes in this setting. Quick off the dribble, gets touches in the paint, and scorers on floaters and finishes at the rim with his right hand. Just transferred to Homewood Flossmoor.
CHAYSE TURNER, 6'3" combo guard, Team Rose 16U 3SSB: Great attacker and finisher at the rim with athletic drives scoring mostly with his left hand. Hit some threes in this setting before getting injured. Blocks shots on defense and has quick hands to get steals. Lincoln Park (Chicago) product.
