We’ve looked at a number of talented prospects on the rise throughout the Midwest the past couple weeks and here’s a few more to pay close attention to during the high school season.  While big names and lofty rankings tend to generate a lot of attention, there are a large number of sleepers slowly emerging that could also generate their own share of positive media buzz on the hardwood.  Here’s a look at five sleepers who could do just that this season…

Note – Listed in alphabetical order

Dashon Enoch – 2019 – G – Oak Park River Forest (IL)
A tough ultra-quick athletic guard with instincts and skill, Enoch delivered a quality spring and summer effort and the talented guard brings leadership to the hardwood with every move he makes.  He can score, create, defend, etc. and he’s one of the better kept secrets in the Chicagoland area.  If he continues to build off of his spring and summer efforts Enoch should have a big year this season and his recruiting trail will slowly start to fill up with each passing month.

Carrington McCaskill – 2019 – F – Detroit Renaissance (MI)
Equipped with size, plus length, and crazy athleticism, McCaskill is just raw and untapped at this point with his best basketball in front of him.  In the mold of a Shawn Marion type at the high school level, when active and engaged McCaskill has the ability to do a little bit of everything and fill the box score with crooked numbers in each column.  He runs the floor, his soars above the rim, and his defensive potential long term is outstanding.  Look for him to take another big step in his development during the high school season as McCaskill is one of the most explosive athletes on the board in the 2019 class.

Donyea McCaskill – 2019 – G – Vashon (MO)
Speaking of explosion nothing defines this talented guard more than that word as he has gifted bounce and athleticism to go with some toughness, skill, and instincts making for a highly intriguing talent.  A transfer into St. Louis from the Springfield area, McCaskill delivered a scintillating spring and summer effort and he is primed and ready to do much of the same on the high school side.  One of the better kept secrets in the Midwest, look for McCaskill to deliver some high caliber efforts during the high school season and continue to build onto his fast developing resume on the hardwood.

Zach Toussaint – 2019 – PG – Johnsburg (IL)
This young man can play and he does so at a high level on the hardwood.  If you can get past the poor evaluation biases that tend to occur with young men like this and look at pure basketball it’s easy to like what Toussaint brings to the table.  He handles it, he sees the floor, his range is excellent, and he can flat out take over the game in a variety of ways with consistency.  He’s lethal from the perimeter and he pairs that with character, instincts, and leadership to make for an excellent perimeter talent.  Expect a huge year from him to build on a stellar spring and summer campaign he delivered earlier this year.

David Skogman – 2019 – F/C – Waukesha West (WI)
You can’t teach size and Skogman has it at 6-10 but his skill package and 7 foot plus wingspan make him even more intriguing for a late blooming big.  While Waukesha West could very well be one of the bigger stories in the state of Wisconsin by season’s end, Skogman could be one of the bigger stories as a prospect in the state by next fall.  He runs the floor well, he has advanced feel, he has nice vision, he can face up and knock down the mid-range jumper, and he pairs all that with a ton of physical clay to mold in terms of size, length, etc.  He’s a legitimate Division 1 prospect and what level he lands at will be determined by the work he puts in the next 6-12 months.  Expect a quality season for him this winter.
