Team Look: Father Tolton

Father Tolton (Columbia, MO.) has started out their 2021-2022 season strong! The Trailblazers kicked off their year at the Blood Sweat and Tears event in late November. They are off to a 5-1 start and head coach Jeremy Osborne is looking to continue building in the right direction. He’s got a talented roster featuring elite prospects, and a variety of role players. Let’s take a look!

Jevon Porter
Class of 2022
6’11 Forward

Porter is the fourth of five brothers. His game differs from his brothers in that he works from the inside-out. Porter is a great rebounder who times his jumps well. This skill leads to an assortment of putbacks, tip-ins, and short-area buckets. He shows good leverage when working in the post and has an advanced faceup game. Once the defense settles in, he often begins to expand his game and display his feathery soft touch from three. Porter not only has a high shot release but lots of arc on his shot-making it nearly impossible to block or contest. Defensively, Porter will be a valuable asset for Pepperdine in that he can switch onto guards but also protect the rim either as a power forward or center. Jevon Porter is one of the most unique talents in the Midwest, and projects as a game-changer for Lorezno Romar at Pepperdine. 

Aaron Rowe
Class of 2025
6’0 Guard

Rowe is our top-ranked 2025 prospect in Missouri. He’s an explosive lead guard with an outstanding handle to create his own shots off the dribble. Rowe displays great touch from the mid-range and slashes to the lane with speed matched by few to none. As a point guard, his game is advanced for such a young player. He makes good P&R reads and will only improve as his frame and strength evolve. Defensively, Rowe gets in the passing lanes but will need to continue to put on weight to grow as an on-ball defender. Aaron Rowe is one of the more promising prospects in Missouri, and his continued development will be exciting to watch as his high school career continues!

Takhi Chievous
Class of 2022
6’4 Guard

Chieovus is the son of Mizzou legend, Derrick Chievous. Takhi has come into his own over the last 12 months. His game has continued to develop on both ends. On offense, he’s a player who can adapt to the defense and play within the flow of the game. He makes open shots, rebounds well, and gets to the free throw line often. For Tolton he’s able to help fulfill a variety of roles making him a valuable asset as they play for a state title in class 4.

James Lee
Class of 2023
6’0 Guard

Lee is a guard who looks to score the ball at all times. He’s a good ball-handler and makes quick moves going to the basket. Much of Lee’s damage is done in transition and off of ball reversals. Lee transferred from local Battle High School where he would’ve had a lead role. His ability to play either guard spot and bring an element of speed to the game is of value to coach Jeremy Osborne. Currently, Lee is one of the better 6th men in Missouri. A spark off the bench.

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
