Note – This is not an exclusive list – listed in alphabetical order
Mohamoud Abdillahi – 2015 – F/C – Team Getshook
6-9 – Roseville HS – St. Paul, MN
A long and evolving interior talent with size, length and an ability to create havoc in the paint, Abdillahi is a strong sleeper in the 2015 class for the state of Minnesota and he will look to deliver a breakout performance this weekend at the Spring Extravaganza.

Anthony Bonner – 2015 – G – Team YOBO
6-2 – Lawrence HS – Lawrence, KS
A talented sophomore with a solid floor game that can score the basketball, Bonner continues to make his mark on the hardwood and he is one to know and keep track of this weekend in Minnesota.

Trevor Clay – 2014 – PG – Gateway Basketball
6-2 – Crossroads HS - Creve Coeur, MO
Clay is a smooth guard who is comfortable playing on or off the ball. The 6-2 junior likes to attack off the dribble and finish inside, but is just as good mixing it up with his three-point shooting from the perimeter.

Dominique Collier – 2014 – PG – KC Run GMC
6-2 – East HS – Denver, CO
One of the smarter, more controlled point guards in his class, Collier runs the show well for KC Run GMC. Collier will rarely put together high scoring numbers during the grassroots season, but his impact on the game is always high.

Keondre Dew – 2014 – SF – Inland Empire
6-9 – American Heritage – Montclair, CA
Versatility is the key to Dew’s game. The 6-9 talent can get it done inside and out and continues to rapidly improve his skills on the perimeter. With a long wing span, Dew can cause havoc on both ends for the opposition and looks primed for a huge spring and summer campaign.

Chris Duff – 2014 – G – Minnesota Comets
6-4 – Walker-Hackensack-Akeley – Laporte, MN
A lights out catch and shoot talent with nice size and instincts, Duff can fill it up in bunches and has range that extends out to the Western Hemisphere.  Keep track of him this weekend because he’s liable to let it fly and knock it down from anywhere inside the Lindbergh Center.

Shelby Dowler – 2014 – C – Yanders Law
6-9 – F/C – Marshfield, MO
Another of the intriguing interior talents to take a look at this weekend in Minnesota, Dowler has nice size and length that he pairs with solid instincts and an evolving skill package who continues to improve each time out.

Khalil Fuller – 2015 – F – Inland Empire
6-7 – Rancho Verde HS – Moreno Valley, CA
A long and talented forward, Fuller continues to open eyes with his versatility and impactful floor game.  A solid athlete with size, skill and instincts, Fuller is taking aim at the 2015 class and taking no prisoners in the process.  One to know and watch closely.

Nate Gehring – 2014 – F/C – Kingdom Hoops
6-10 – Waukee HS – Waukee, IA
Gehring continues to improve his skills as a big man and has developed a nice game around the rim. The 6-10 forward is a much better finisher from a season ago and has greatly improved his footwork inside.

J.T. Gibson – 2015 – G – Net Gain
6-1 – Champlain Park HS – Brooklyn Park, MN
Gibson is an aggressive guard known for attacking the paint. The sophomore also has a consistent shot from beyond the arc and can finish in a variety of ways.  Fresh off a solid high school campaign, Gibson is one sophomore to pay close attention to this weekend.

Austin Gillmann – 2014 – C – Gateway Basketball
6-11 – Oakville HS – St. Louis, MO
Bigs are always a hot commodity and the Spring Extravaganza will feature a number of them including this emerging interior prospect who has size, length, instincts, and an improved skill set that he will look to show off this weekend in Minnesota.

Spencer Haldeman – 2015 – F – Iowa Barnstormers
6-0 – Western Dubuque HS – Peosta, IA
Haldeman is a smart point guard who excels and slinging the rock and knocking down open 3-pointers. The sophomore is a strong point guard, capable of leading a team.

Jay Knuth – 2014 – SF – Kingdom Hoops
6-5 – Johnston HS – Johnston, IA
Knuth runs the floor well for a swingman and is an outstanding finisher through contact. The strong, 6-5 forward loves to slash from the wing and contact rarely bothers the Iowa native.

Luke Kornet – 2013 – F – Texas Select
6-10 – Liberty Christian School – Argyle, TX
Still looking for a future school, Kornet is coming off a big weekend for Texas Select, helping them reach the title game in Arkansas. Kornet continues to grow, and at 6-10, has retained his perimeter skills, but his added post abilities inside have made him a big sleeper in the 2013 class. A high major talent with grades and skill, Kornet stands to be a coveted and highly watched prospect this spring.

Kory Kuenstling – 2014 – F/C – Iowa Barnstormers
6-11 – Dunkerton HS – Dunkerton, IA
Kuenstling is active forward with good hands. The junior big man has good strength and is a solid shot blocker on the defensive end with size and length who is only scratching the surface of his potential.

Joseph Lillis – 2013 – SF – Team YOBO
6-7  - Blue Valley West HS – Olathe, KS
A talented and athletic forward with instincts and skill, Lillis can knock down the jumper, finish in transition, soar to the rim, etc.  He’s a talented forward to keep track of this weekend in Minnesota.

Tory Miller – 2014 – F/C – KC Run GMC
6-8 – New Hampton School – Lee’s Summit, MO
Miller is a strong, tough forward who controls the paint with his size. At 6-8, 240-pounds, is built like a horse, but also has some deceptive athleticism. After re-classifying to the 2014 class, Miller is looking to add a few more high major offers to his collection.

Luke McDonnell – 2015 – F – Iowa Barnstormers
6-7 – Dubuque HS – Dubuque, IA
McDonnell is a skilled big man that uses finesse to score inside. At 6-7, McDonnell looks to still be growing and has the length to develop into an intriguing prospect down the road.

Emmanuel Mudiay – 2014 – PG – Texas Select
6-5 – Prime Prep HS – Dallas, TX
As one of the nation’s top players, few if any, run the fast break better than Mudiay. The nation’s third ranked player in the 2014 class, has a great balance of size, quickness, strength, and athleticism that really make him a solid all-around guard.

Kevin Puryear – 2015 – PF – KC Run GMC
6-7 – Blue Springs South HS – Lee’s Summit, MO
Puryear is an exciting prospect who runs the floor well and always seems to find a way to get to the rim in transition. The sophomore has good athleticism and is one of those players who seems to always have his motor on high as he can score around the basket, attack the glass, and make things happen on both ends of the court.

Luke Sandquist – 2014 – F/C – Minnesota Comets
6-6 – Watertown HS – Delano, MO
An undersized interior talent with toughness and skill, Sandquist has been impressive at times already this spring as he knows how to play on both ends of the court, he plays hard, and he makes things happen whenever he’s on the floor.

Casey Schlatter – 2014 – SF – Iowa Barnstormers
6-9 – Alden HS – Iowa Falls, IA
Schlatter has been impressive so far this spring. The 6-9 junior is becoming a match up nightmare with his versatility. Schlatter is long and can handle the ball on the break making him very tough to defend.

Tyrone Taylor – 2014 – PG – KC Run GMC
6-2 – Grandview HS – Grandview, MO
The lefty has a quick trigger from beyond the arc, but really excels at breaking his defender down. Taylor has a quick first step and excellent change of direction. Few players in the country can stay with Taylor who is an outstanding ball handler.

Myles Turner – 2014 – PF – Texas Select
6-11 – Euless Trinity HS – Bedford, TX
Turner is an athletic forward with a good mid-range game. At 6-11, Turner has outstanding court awareness and hops that make him a handful to defend inside. The sky is the limit for this soaring high major talent and with his ability to get to the free throw line, as well as catch and shoot from mid-range, Turner is big offensive weapon for Texas Select.

Wyatt Voorhes – 2014 – G – Team YOBO
6-1 – Mill Valley HS – Shawnee, KS
Voorhes is a solid perimeter talent with excellent range and a solid floor game.  He makes good decisions, can knock down the perimeter shot, and is a solid guard to keep tabs on this spring and summer starting this weekend in Minnesota.

Andre Wallace – 2014 – PG – Net Gain Sports
6-1 – Eden Prairie HS – Minneapolis, MN
Wallace loves to run the break in transition and always seems to make the right decisions in the open floor. The speedy guard has great vision, can play above the rim at times, and has the ability to knock down jump shots from the outside.
