Ryan Briscoe -- 2016 -- G -- Gateway Basketball 15s
5-9 -- Duchesne H.S. -- St. Louis, MO

Gateway Basketball's 15s team had a solid group of prospects but Ryan Briscoe caught my eye with his ability to play both guard spots and play with a tremendous amount of toughness. Despite being undersized, Briscoe attacked the rim hard and finished through contact while also displaying an ability to knock down shots and make passes to open teammates.

Obediah Church -- 2015 -- F -- Peoria Irish 17s
6-7 -- Springfield H.S. -- Springfield, IL

Church has been getting some interest from low and mid-major programs lately and it's easy to see why. At 6-7, Church is bouncy and active around the hoop and has a lot of upside. He'll need to improve his skill level and jumper but he's a promising forward with good athleticism.

Malik Clements -- 2014 -- SG -- Madison Spartans
6-4 -- Madison West H.S. -- Madison, WI

Clements is a part of a talented Madison Spartans group that plays well together on the wing. Clements is good off the bounce and likes to attack the basket by going left or right. He uses the power dribble well to create space and is also physical enough to stave off smaller guards that try to body him on the wing.

Jeremiah Ferguson -- 2015 -- PG -- Illinois Celtics
6-0 -- Marist H.S. -- Naperville, IL

Without KJ Santos in the lineup, Ferguson stepped in and admirably handled lead guard duties in spot minutes for the Illinois Celtics. Ferguson played with a high motor and was very active on both ends of the floor and he was aggressive driving to the hoop and getting the defense to collapse before finding open teammates.

Sam Hauser -- 2016 -- F -- Wisconsin Academy 15s
6-5 -- Stevens Point H.S. -- Stevens Point, WI

High school and travel teammate Trevor Anderson gets a lot of publicity but Hauser deserves his fair share of credit as well for his versatile inside-outside game. Hauser knocked in catch-and-shoot threes, rebounded and defended on the wing and on the interior.

Andre Hogan -- 2014 -- G -- Team Rose
6-1 -- Harlan H.S. -- Chicago, IL

Hogan was one of the better scorers in the Chicago Public League last season and continued his scoring ways over the weekend. Hogan hunts his own offense by going off the bounce or using his jumper and he has a scorer's mentality that helps when he misses shots.

Joe Powell -- 2014 -- F -- Dorian's Pride
6-7 -- Saginaw H.S. -- Saginaw, MI

Powell was active on the glass and played hard for Dorian's Pride over the weekend. In a game on Friday night, despite having only four players on the floor, in the first half Powell had nearly double-digit rebounds and was everywhere on the floor. Powell has a bit of skill as well, although his jumper needs to improve.

Tyler Seibring -- 2015 -- PF -- Central IL Net Gain
6-7 -- Normal Community H.S. -- Towanda, IL

Seibring showed promise as a pick-and-pop 4-man with a quick release. In a matchup against top prospect Diamond Stone, Seibring took him outside and knocked in multiple three-pointers to open up the floor for his teammates to attack the middle more often. Seibring also rebounded a bit and showed that he'll mix it up a bit on the interior.

Jeremy Stephani -- 2014 -- G --  IL Rising Stars Elite
6-1 -- Wheeling H.S. -- Arlington Heights, IL

Stephani knocked in a lot of perimeter jumpers and has a quick trigger from the perimeter. He also played both guard spots and showed an ability to handle the ball and find teammates.

Jachai Taylor -- 2015 -- SF -- IL Rising Stars Elite 16s
6-5 -- Waukegan -- Waukegan, IL

Taylor missed the Spring Extravaganza in April, but showed that he'll be a prospect to watch for the Rising Stars Elite 16s. With great athleticism and size on the wing, Taylor is more prospect than player at the moment, but showed great instincts and some skills on the wing. His jumper and ball handling need a bit of work, but Taylor has an ability to finish above the rim with ease and has a lot of upside.
