National Emergence

Atlanta, Ga – There will be a number of prospects who elevate their games even more and turn coaches and national media into believers this summer. In our first look at the summer 2020, we will look at who is poised to have a big season on the court this travel season to further move up the national ranks.



KOWACIE REEVES

Westside Macon High School
Macon, GA


Reeves has the size and versatility to play and defend multiple positions. Offensively, he’s a consistent shooting threat with room and rhythm, both from behind the arc as well as in his pull-up game. He’s good enough with the ball to act as a big secondary ball-handler and can be equally effective attacking the basket as he is as a shooter. Bottom line, with good perimeter size, long arms and good athleticism he’s a talented prospect and versatile two-way player who could potentially be a lockdown defender and special piece on the offensive end.




RYAN MUTOMBO

The Lovett School
Atlanta, GA


He’s a late blooming big man improving at a rapid rate. Has evolved in almost every facet of the game – coming into his own athletically, developing his skill set away from the basket. Physically, he’s long, mobile and agile for his size. He changes ends extremely well and can rise up to make plays above the rim on both ends of the floor. Mutombo is a true post that has tremendous upside. He has great size and can make scoring plays in and around the lane with his good hands touch and mobility.






PEYTON DANIELS

Tri-Cities High School
Atlanta, GA


Daniels is a scoring machine who has gone on some of the more memorable scoring runs this past season for the Bulldogs. Daniels had multiple games with 40 points or more and a number of games with 25 points or more. The small quick combo guard shoots the ball with good range out beyond the three-point stripe. Whether off the catch or off the bounce, defenders struggle to keep him from knocking down shots. Daniels will see his recruitment and offers grow this summer as we look for him to be one of the top scorers on the Adidas circuit.




EMMANUEL SHARPE

Blake High School
Tampa, FL


Sharpe is a tough perimeter match up because he can score in a variety of ways with great size and skill. He has all the offensive tools to be an excellent bucket getter at the high major level. The absolute strength of his game is his prolific jump shot. He is deadly off the catch and his release is smooth and quick. He moves well without the ball and finds pockets in the defense to release his shot. Sharpe will make an immediate impact this summer due to his shooting prowess and will see his offer list grow.






ALEX FUDGE

Robert E. Lee High School
Jacksonville, FL


Fudge just oozes potential at the wing position. The willowy forward runs like a deer, handles the ball well as a straight-line driver, and possesses catapult-like explosiveness. He has a quick first step which allows him to get past most defenders and create match-up problems. He rebounds well in his area and can lead the break due to his nifty handle and astute court vision. 




BRIAN EDWARDS JR.

Knoxville Catholic
Knoxville, TN


This lead guard made big strides during his sophomore season helping the Irish Men claim a State Championship. He has good versatility with the ball in his hands and is able to attack the defense in a number of ways. He has the handle to stay composed verses pressure or create his own offense making quick changes of direction with the ball. He has a good-looking shooting stroke off both the catch and the dribble, sees the court well, and plays very unselfishly. He holds offers from Auburn, Florida, Georgetown, South Carolina and Tennessee, once Edwards takes the floor during the evaluation period look for this list to grow.


CESARE EDWARDS

Hartsville High School
Hartsville, SC


Edwards is a long and athletic power forward that is loaded with upside. He has a good motor that he uses to run the floor well. He can rebound in and out of his area and he has the ability to score around the basket and make shots from the mid-range area. He is mobile and has the footwork/agility to defend on the perimeter with the proper techniques. With all that being said, Edwards best playing days lie ahead but his athleticism and developing skill, motor, and rebounding make him a very attractive major college prospect.
