FREDERICK CARL III – 2018 – SG – WISCONSIN BLIZZARD PRONSCHINSKE
One of the most impressive overall efforts and breakout performances of the spring was delivered by Carl as he helped pace his team to a solid 8-1 mark during the first two sessions with solid consistent play each weekend.  Shooting close to 58 percent from the field and almost 52 percent from long range, Carl was among the league leaders in PPG (17), Efficiency (10.38 EPG), and Floor Impact (24 FIPG).  He has a nice long frame, with range, the ability to finish at each level, and a high basketball IQ that was evident consistently this spring as he delivered strong performances game in and game out in impressive fashion.

XAVIER PINSON – 2018 – PG – MAC IRVIN FIRE ELITE
A long lean talented floor general with the ability to take over the game scoring or creating, Pinson brought some electricity to the gym on occasion during the first couple of sessions.  At his best Pinson can score at each level, dominant with his dribble penetration and creativity, and he has the ability to fill the box score with activity and production on both ends of the floor.  He was among the top 10 in overall floor impact (26.56 FIPG) as he scored (16.56 PPG), distributed (3.67 APG), grabbed rebounds (4 RPG), and was disruptive defensively (2.22 SPG).  Add to the mix a near 62 percent field goal percentage and it’s easy to see why the talented 6-3 lanky floor general is seeing his recruiting stock continue to elevate with each passing month.  

MARLON RUFFIN – 2018 – G/F – PLAYGROUND ELITE 
A tough blue collar active wing with an attack first mentality, Ruffin played hard and was dominant on occasion throughout the spring.  The near 6-5 wing can score off the bounce, hit the mid-range jumper, and has range that extends beyond the arc.  He shot close to 64 percent from the field and almost 47 percent from beyond the arc while scoring 16 points a contest.  His overall floor impact was solid as well (23.25 FIPG) as he collect over 3 rebounds, almost 3 assists, and 2 steals per contest.  His effort and ability to provide versatility and toughness were keys to the Playground Elite team having a successful spring as they wrapped the two sessions with a 7-1 mark beyond strong play from talented juniors like this one and Quincy Anderson to say the least.
