2018 Top Prospects
by Transition Hoops Report
After a great summer on the travel circuit we have updated our top rankings for 2018. We saw a lot of young players with the potential to play at the highest level. Below is our top 10 and honorable mention prospects. We won't update this list until the high school season so it will be exciting to see who works the hardest to hold on to their spot or jump other players.
#1 J'raan Brooks (6'8 PF Garfield HS, WA) - Brooks' potential is through the roof. His footwork inside is good and his length is elite to block shots and rebound. After a strong summer he picked up an offer from Washington.
#2 Immanuel Allen (6'1 SF Lakeridge HS, OR) - Allen is a very strong and physical player with good footwork and fundamentals. He has a nice mid range game and can finish around the rim.
#3 Andrew Kenny (6'5 SG Bellevue HS, WA) - Kenny is a really skilled wing that has a very good feel for the game. He understands how to get himself quality looks and set his teammates up for easy buckets.
#4 Kevin Porter (6'4 SF Raineir Beach HS, WA) - Porter is a terrific athlete that has a really high ceiling. He is long and has a good handle. If he can consistently play hard he will be a big time prospect.
#5 Jacob Medjo (6'5 PF Bothell HS, WA) - Medjo makes tough plays in transition and plays with a big motor. He is versatile with a nice looking shot that can knock down the perimeter jumpshot.
#6 Kelson Eiselein (6'4 PF Roundup HS, MT) - Eiselein can make plays inside and out. He has good footwork inside and can finish through contact as well as step outside to hit the 3.
#7 Collin Kelley (6'4 PF Davis HS, WA) - Kelley is long and athletic that has a good feel for the game. He moves well without the ball and understands how to be an effective off ball defender.
#8 Nicholas Lynch (6'9 C Seattle Prep HS, WA) - Lynch has elite size. He has a big body and soft hands.
#9 Naje' Smith (6'6 C Lewis and Clark HS, WA) - Smith is really long and is a huge factor on defense. He has a soft touch around the basket with a good standing vertical.
#10 Drew Meyerhoeffer (6'2 SG Twin Falls HS, ID) - Meyerhoeffer is a great perimeter shooter. He is also a very good athlete that is a tough defender and rebounder.

NOT ON THE LIST?
If you know a player that should be on this list it is probably because we haven't seen enough of him play. We will be in Seattle on September 13 and in Eagle, Idaho on October 1-3 hosting Showcases that any incoming 9th-12th graders (classes of 2019-2016) can attend. Click here to learn more.
