5 Guards Poised For Breakout Season

This year was unlike any other as division 1 and division 2 college coaches couldn’t get out and recruit in person. Here are 5 players that we saw this summer that gained college interest (and offers), and are set up nicely for a breakout high school season.

Jordan Brown, SG, 2022, Basehor-Linwood (KS), Team YOBO
We got an extended look at Jordan this summer and he didn’t disappoint. He dropped a 30-ball on KC Run GMC while running with Team YOBO. He then followed that up with a couple of 30-point performances at our Omaha Showcase event against top-level competition. Brown has wiggle and swagger on the offensive end, and he’s going to continue to see his stock go up. Watch Highlights

Jordan picked up Missouri State and Austin Peay offers recently. 

Cole Farrell, CG, 2021, Hazelwood Central (MO), SW Illinois Jets
Cole is an electric guard that does most of his damage when he’s got the ball in his hands and going downhill towards the rim. He took his game to another level with the development of his jump shot and ability to create space off the dribble for step-back jumpers. Watch Highlights
Farrell has offers from SIUE, Louisiana-Monroe, SEMO, Bowling Green. We’ve heard from a number of schools that are tracking Cole’s progress and set to watch him this high school season.

Cale Jacobsen, CG, 2022, Ashland Greenland (NE), Lincoln Supreme
Cale is an interesting prospect. He has tons of division one interest but no offers yet. We’ve talked to a number of college coaches about Cale and they all echo the same thing… “we love his work ethic and understanding of the game.”  His offers are coming, he’s too talented of a player. A big high school season followed by a big spring & summer on the AAU scene and that interest will turn into offers. Watch Highlights

Trey Lewis, PG, 2022, Johnston (IA), Pure Prep
Trey is steady as they come on the floor. He plays with poise and confidence. Trey added muscle this year which has helped him on the defensive end. He’s able to get more physical on the ball and fighting through screens. His offensive game has always been there. He’s a great shooter with range, has elite passing skills, and knows how to run a team. Trey has a lot of mid-major interest right now. 

Landon Brown, CG, 2024, iSchool of Lewisville (TX), Texas Tarheels
Landon is the youngest player on this list and his recruitment is relatively quiet because of his age, but his game is explosive and his recruitment will take off soon enough. Landon already has an understanding of how to use his size and quickness to score. He plays through traffic at the rim with great control and finishes. He uses his quickness on the bounce to explode to his spot for mid-range scoring looks. And he can shoot it from the perimeter with range.

Landon doesn’t have any offers yet but expects a lot of coaches to check-in on him as he plays a tough high school schedule at iSchool of Lewisville.

2019 Larry Hughes Elite Camp Preview

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to
