Bol Bol (Mater Dei, Calif.) Sr. 7' 3" C Bol Bol, son of former NBA star Manute Bol, is paving his own path to the NBA. Although lacking his fathers "room changing" height of 7' 7", Bol extends his game well beyond the limitations of a typical rim defender. Shooting nearly 50% from beyond the arc at Nike's EYBL league, Bol is making a name for himself in the pick and pop game. Senior Bol is undecided on his next step of collegiate ball. He is currently being courted by UK, Oregon and more.

Malcolm Dandridge at Memphis East for his junior year. His extremely long arms (7' 4.5" wingspan) and body awareness are helping Wiseman stand above the rest of his class. He has a great handle on basketball fundamentals and has developed a solid foundation to build on his junior and senior year of play. His transfer to Memphis East raises the bar in the competition department and should challenge Wiseman to improve his skill to new heights. Wiseman remains uncommitted, as a variety of top schools have thrown their hats in the ring.
Vernon Carey Jr. (University School, Fla.) Jr. 6' 10" C Vernon Carey Jr. is a bruising lefty with the size to play in the post and the touch to stretch teams beyond the arc. A mismatch nightmare Carey is able to find a team's weakness and exploit it.
Carey is always looking to score, from creating his own driving lanes to keeping his shoulders square for quick jump shots. Carey is showing why he is ready for the next level. It's no wonder this young center is being courted by the likes of UNC, Duke, UF, KU, Miami and more.
