South Iron trio making noise

South Iron went into CBC High School on January 30th and came out with one of the biggest upsets of the year in Missouri, or so you would think. South Iron has been up for the challenge all year and boasts a talented roster that plays disciplined basketball in addition to being well-coached. They expect to win and have a proven roster full of winners. 

Brock Wakefield | South Iron | Class of 2021 | Guard

Wakefield is a Citadel commit who is very skilled on the perimeter. He possesses good ball-handling ability, and can get to the rim throughout the game where he uses great footwork and a variety of finishes to fill up the stat sheet. His jump shot is solid and allows him to keep the defense on their heels. In addition to this, his basketball IQ and how he sees the floor are advanced for his age and will translate to the college level.

Drenin Dinkins | South Iron | Class of 2022 | Point Guard

Dinkins is an electric ball-handler who covers a lot of ground on the floor. He’s very quick with the ball and can run the offense. He has shown consistent ability to create his own shot from three with stepbacks and pullback moves in his arsenal. Against CBC he grabbed 15 rebounds at only 5’11 showcasing his nose for the ball and desire to win at all costs. Dinkins has been impressive every time we’ve seen him this year. 

Jermarco Burse | South Iron | Class of 2021 | Forward

Burse is a hard-nosed forward who is the glue to this team. He is a consistent scorer, rebounds well, and plays with passion. At 6’4 Burse makes plays above the rim on putbacks and short jump shots. Defensively he is positionally sound and rotates well, displaying good IQ. Against CBC he scored 11 points and really was the one who kept them in the game in the first half. In the second half, he leaked out for a dunk to tie the game and take control of the momentum. His plays down the stretch were crucial in the win.

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.
