With the second spring evaluation period complete, a number of players saw their stock rise over the weekend at the NY2LA Sports Spring Extravaganza. With hundreds of college coaches in attendance, these prospects are sure to see their recruitments start to pick up after their performances in Minneapolis.

Here’s a look at some of the below the radar stock boosters from this past weekend…

Bailey Basala – 2017 – F – Iowa Barnstormers 
Basala is a player that does whatever is asked of him. If you need him to score, rebound, make hustle plays, Basala is capable of shining in a lot of different areas. An athletic forward that can run the floor, Basala had a number of big plays in transition and also can knock down shots from the perimeter occasionally. The 6-foot-6 sophomore also isn’t afraid to do the dirty work either.

Isaiah Chandler – 2017 – C – Omaha Elite
Chandler could be a rising big man in the 2017 class. A big body that can control the paint, Chandler also has some skills as a back-to-the-basket center. Chandler has can overpower his defender with a nice drop step and showed some finesse with his jump hook as well. The 6-foot-9 sophomore also displayed good rebounding technique and instincts over the weekend. 

George Dixon – 2017 – F – Wisconsin United
In a deep class of 2017 for Wisconsin, Dixon isn’t one to sleep on. An athletic junk yard dog, Dixon works his tail off in the paint for every basket and rebound offensively. Able to handle the ball in transition, Dixon brings a different dimension with his ability to score in transition. The 6-foot-4 combo forward is also working hard on his jump shot and was able to shoot well with some consistency.

Ramar Evans – 2017 – G – Chicago Lockdown
Evans is a strong, athletic guard that can loves to play in the paint. A solid ball handler, Evans can get into the teeth of the defense at will and use his strong frame to shield off defenders at the rim. The sophomore also takes a lot of pride on the defensive end, hassling the opposition with his aggressive style.

Brandon Hau – 2017 – G/F – Wisconsin Shooters
Hau has sprouted up to 6-foot-6 and is a very intriguing wing. The sophomore was very effective as a slasher and can knock down shots from the outside with some consistency. Hau has a chance to really rise this spring and into the summer if his skills keep improving. 

Leonski Higgins – 2016 – G – Illinois Attack
There’s a lot to like about Higgins. A taller combo guard, Higgins can attack the basket and finish over bigger defenders. Higgins is very creative at the rim and can covert in a variety of ways. Not only a vocal leader for his team, Higgins gets his teammates involved and makes the players around him better.

Shammond Ivory – 2016 – G – Kingdom Hoops
Ivory is a high volume scorer that makes difficult shots look easy. Able to break his man down off the dribble, Ivory has a quick trigger that defenders struggle to contest. He was excellent throughout the weekend with his ability to carry the scoring load for Kingdom Hoops.

Jeremy Johnson – 2015 – G – Grassroots Sizzle
Johnson picked up five offers over the weekend thanks to some strong backcourt play. Wisconsin-Green Bay, Denver, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Western Illinois, and North Dakota State all pulled the trigger after watching Johnson in Minneapolis. A high-IQ combo guard with sneak athleticism, Johnson could be a strong glue guy at the next level and talented perimeter defender. 

Levi Jansen – 2016 – G/F – Martin Brothers
Jansen is still looking for his first offer, but provides so much value to a team. A strong perimeter defender, Jansen takes pride in locking his man up. The 6-foot-3 junior is also a sharpshooter from beyond the arc. If Jansen is given an inch of space, he can get his shot off and bury three-pointers at a high rate.

Max Keefe – 2016 – F – Wisconsin Swing
Keefe continues to expand his game as a stretch forward. The lanky junior has deep range from beyond the arc and opens up the paint for guards to slash by pulling his man out of the paint. Although still quite raw, Keefe shows little hesitation in his game offensively as he continues to gain confidence as a high scorer and play at a high level.

Matthew Pile – 2017 – PF – Team Kansas City
A good combination of power and finesse, Pile had flew under the radar with his play over the weekend. Pile has some skills as a jump shooter and showed some impressive footwork on the block. He doesn’t look the part of an athletic big man, but Pile was able to flush home some baskets in traffic. 

Shawn Pipes – 2017 – G – Illinois Stars
A high-volume scorer with terrific handles on the perimeter, Pipes showed the ability to explode when his team needed him. Pipes can break his man down off the bounce and pull-up from anywhere on the floor with ease. Leading the transition offense for the Stars, Pipes gets down the floor in a hurry and makes good decisions on the fly.
