Note – Listed in alphabetical order

ISAIAH POOR-BEAR CHANDLER – 2017 – PF – OMAHA ELITE 
A big solid interior prospect with size, skill, and instinct, Chandler paired with first team All-NY2LA Selection Logan Strom to form a powerful and talented 1-2 interior punch for Omaha Elite on their way to a 2nd place finish in the 17U NY2LA Basketball Association.  He can finish around the basket and at the mid-range level, he collects rebounds, and he has plus length and solid timing that allows him to alter shots and be disruptive defensively.  A solid talent, Chandler was consistent and dominant at times this past spring.  Currently holds offers to Nebraska-Omaha, South Dakota, Northern Kentucky, Bowling Green, St. Bonaventure, Southern Illinois, Illinois-Chicago, IPFW, Buffalo, UTEP, Wright State, and Ball State.

TEYVION KIRK – 2017 – PG – ALL IN Y&R
An intriguing and talented floor general with a nice ceiling, Kirk has a plus length frame and excellent size that he pair with instincts and skill to deliver quality efforts throughout the spring.  He can handle the ball, distribute with quality decision making and timing, and he can score off the bounce at the rim, mid-range level, or beyond the arc.  Defensively his size, length, and instincts make for a potential lock down defender at the next level.  Still developing, Kirk’s best years are in front of him.  Verbally committed to Drake.

CHRIS KNIGHT – 2017 – PF – WISCONSIN SWING
Was one of the top performers on the circuit at times as he delivered some high caliber efforts in Texas this past April and in Las Vegas in late July.  In the middle a solid performance helped guide the Swing to the 17U championship in Wisconsin during the NY2LA Basketball Association Championships.  He has solid instincts, an ability to finish with either hand around the basket, and nice timing defensively to make things happen.  When active and engaged he cleans the glass consistently and dominantly.  He has size, length, and vertical athleticism and while still raw in some areas, Knight is very young for his class and grade so it’s very intriguing to see how much he develops and improves in the coming years.  Verbally committed to Dartmouth.

STEFFON MITCHELL – 2017 – F – GRASSROOTS SIZZLE
A skilled face up forward who held double digit offers as a 2016 prospect, Mitchell has since re-classified and is now attending Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas as a 2017 prospect.  He has nice size, a solid face up game, and a left handed perimeter stroke that allows him to score at multiple levels.  Mitchell was strong with his efforts during the opening weekend in Minnesota in April and during the championships in Wisconsin in early July.  Those performances helped his team to quality wins and his efforts being that was solid and for the most part consistent.  A potential matchup problem for other forwards given his ability to score from all three levels, Mitchell is currently collecting a lot of interest at the Division 1 level after his reclassification and move to Sunrise this fall with programs like Valparaiso, San Francisco, Northeastern, etc. starting to pursue him.

DEVIN WHITELOW – 2017 – PG – ILLINOIS IRISH ELITE
One of those talents who does all the little things and leads by example, Whitelow was the straw that stirred the drink for a stellar spring and summer campaign for his team.  His ability to control the tempo, create, and defend at a high level not only led to easy baskets for his teammates but also powered an active and disruptive defensive effort for his team game in and game out.  Arguably the top on the ball defender in the circuit, Whitelow did a lot of everything well with a high level of consistency.  A floor general and leader in the purest sense, Whitelow can really play.  Verbally committed to Winona State.
