810 Varsity Sunflower Showcase Standouts

810 Varsity hosted their Sunflower Showcase over the weekend with top metro teams in action. We were on hand for the late afternoon games which saw Basehor-Linwood, Park Hill South, McPherson, and Piper all playing. All four teams were respectively ranked in their classes, which made this an incredible event. Here are some standouts from the two afternoon games we were in attendance for. 

Josh Prososki 2020 G Park Hill South – Prososki was phenomenal for the Panthers down the stretch against Basehor-Linwood. Prososki was clutch at the free throw line for Park Hill South late in the game when they needed to put Basehor away. In addition to his clutch free throw shooting, Prososki showed his ability to extend to the 3-point line and knock it down from a distance. When given the separation, Prososki wasn’t afraid to shoot and showed that willingly. Prososki did a good job curling off screens and continuing to the basket, while also showing his ability to be a playmaking guard as well. 

Jake Powers 2020 G Park Hill South – Powers was also a crucial piece for the Panthers down the stretch against Basehor. Showing his ability to step up to the line and knock down crucial free throws when his team needed it most. Powers has an incredible motor and showed his willingness to rebound against a bigger Basehor team. 

Trevor McBride 2022 G Basehor-Linwood – McBride’s shot wasn’t falling on Saturday night, but that didn’t stop him from impacting the game in other ways. A playmaking guard in every way, McBride showed flashes of his incredible court vision, burst, and ability to create space for his own shot. Once the shot starts falling at a consistent rate, he’ll be hard to guard. 

Connor Younger 2020 G Basehor-Linwood – Younger started slow against Park Hill South but started to come alive after halftime. Younger’s shooting stroke is pure, anytime he shoots it you think it’s going in. Younger showed he has the ability to score at all three levels on offense, and also introduced an added level to his game from when I saw him in the summer. Younger used the mid-range to his favor on Saturday night, something that’ll help the lefty at the next level. 

Jordan Brown 2022 G Basehor-Linwood – Brown started off Saturday on fire, drilling multiple three’s from all over the court. His range is undeniable. Brown is a crafty guard, and is improving on his ability to create space for his own shot. 
Tamar Bates 2021 G Piper HS – Bates was the best player to take the court the entire Saturday afternoon. Bates plays with passion and intensity the second the ball tips and doesn’t stop until the game is over. A smooth, slashing wing, Bates has elite athleticism combined with his defensive prowess. Bates ability to get to the rim is bar none, and continues to show why High Major Colleges are recruiting him hard. Bates should see a rise in his ranking come the end of the season as well.

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
