Key Performances: Cardinal Ritter vs Father Tolton

Plenty of talent on the floor in the Carinal Ritter vs. Father Tolton matchup last night. Here is a look at some of the players that had big nights.

Mario Fleming | Cardinal Ritter | Class of 2021 | Guard

Fleming is on pace to score his 1500th point very soon for one of the best programs all-time in Missouri. He is a 3 level scorer with a sturdy frame at 6’2. Fleming has a nose for the ball and gets to his spots on the floor where he is incredibly efficient. Against Tolton he did the majority of his work inside and in transition which led to a 21 point night and the win. Fleming has the tools to be a successful player at the college level. 

Braxton Stacker | Cardinal Ritter | Class of 2022 | Hybrid Guard

Braxton Stacker is a transfer via Belleville East in Illinois. The long and athletic guard has a 6’5 frame and plays way above the rim. He had 16 points in this contest with 2 of his baskets being momentum-swinging dunks that energized his team. Stacker may be unknown by most currently, but this is soon to change as he told RecruitLook that Missouri, Saint Louis, Virginia Tech, Colorado State, and Tulsa are showing him the most interest. Look for him to be a breakout performer for Bradley Beal Elite in the EYBL this spring. 

Jevon Porter | Father Tolton | Class of 2022 | Dual Forward

Jevon is next in line on the boys side for the Porter family. Similar to his brothers Michael and Jontay, he has great length and shooting touch making him a premier prospect at 6’9. Currently committed to play for his Godfather, Lorenzo Romar, at Pepperdine, Porter has the skill set to be one of the best players in the West Coast Conference. He finished with 23 points and 3 blocks on the night. He converted on 3 shots from beyond the arc, a dunk off an offensive rebound, and used his touch near the rim.

Evens Appolon | Father Tolton | Class of 2023 | Center

Appolon is a freak of nature for only being a sophomore. The 6’8 and 240 or so pound center makes his presence felt on the court. He is an aggressive rebounder around the basket and positions himself well awaiting passes near the block. The next step for Appolon is learning how to utilize his physical strength, and continuing to work on his post moves/footwork. He has a great attitude and good body language in game so it is easy to assume Appolon is a coachable prospect. He finished the game with 14 points. Although it is early in his career, it’s safe to assume Appolon will be at the very least a low to mid major college prospect.

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 info@recruitlook.com.
