OTR Power 24 – Sunday Standouts (Rickers) – July 19, 2023
OTR Power 24: Sunday Standouts
The last live period of the summer just wrapped up, OTR’s Power 24, which brought together a collection of shoe teams and top independents from across the country. Throughout the weekend, we saw some fantastic finishes and a number of players breakout in front of college coaches. Here are a couple of guys that stood out on Sunday.

2024 F Josh Hill – Garner Road
It’s been a great couple of live periods for Josh Hill this summer and now with Garner Road, Hill is showing what he can do in a true stretch forward role. Hill’s got a soft shooting touch from the perimeter to pair with great size and length making for a unique package. He shoots it with a ton of confidence and will only grow more lethal at the next level. Hill already has a number of high-major opportunities and will likely add more to the list after a great weekend at the Power 24.
2024 F Jeremy Innocent – South Florida Elite
Jeremy Innocent has been a popular name at OTR events this year and he’s showing out on the big stage this weekend. Innocent is a big guard, 6’7 and lanky which makes for a ton of versatility. He’s an above the rim guy, never hesitant to throw one down in traffic. His outside shot falls consistently and he’s able to get it off over smaller defenders with his high release point. Several mid-majors were around to see him this weekend.
2024 F Brett Wright – Atlanta All-Stars (Pictured Above)
Brett Wright capitalized on the opportunity, 25 points to lead the Atlanta All-Stars in their Sunday afternoon matchup. I love Wright’s versatility, able to play on the perimeter with his sweet jump shot but also athletic enough to finish above the rim and compete for boards with much taller guys. Trevecca Nazarene offered Wright back in May and they had multiple coaches here to see his big game.
2025 F Sean Van Dorn – AE5
Sean Van Dorn was a bright spot in AE5’s afternoon matchup, some huge plays on both ends of the floor that helped bring AE5 back and force overtime. He’s very coordinated around the rim, good hands and some soft touch. Van Dorn is 6’5 but plays much bigger and runs the floor extremely hard. The high motor paired with size and athleticism make Van Dorn a very attractive prospect with lots of potential to tap into still.
2024 C Stefano Alleso – Game Speed Elite
Stefano Alleso has stolen the show at both of our July live periods, a hidden gem two weeks ago that’s now peaked the interest of D1s across the country. The European influence is strong in Alleso’s game, big and skilled with high-level passing ability. The outside shot was also on display Sunday, a couple of good looking three-balls against Garner Road. Alleso tells me he’s yet to receive his first offer but I’m sure that won’t be the case for too long.
