Shae Mitchell is a 6’6 freshman who has managed to stay under the radar. Shae Mitchell is not represented in many, if any of the Class of 2018 Basketball Rankings on the internet. The freshman from Minnesota is very athletic, finishes above the rim, and has a nice shooting stroke. While many aren’t familiar with the Shae Mitchell, that will change soon enough. Two years from now remember where you heard the name Shae Mitchell first!
Simi Shittu is a 6’7 freshman who is one of Canada’s rising stars. Naturally every rising Canadian star will be compared to Andrew Wiggins, and the athleticism and promise that Simi Shittu has shown has made many mention the 15 year old in the same breathe as Wiggins. Simi is lightning quick in transition, finishes above the rim consistently, and already holds offers from Baylor, Kansas State, New Mexico, and Illinois. While it’s very premature to compare Simi Shittu to the #1 pick in the NBA Draft many are still calling him the Next Andrew Wiggins. The Class of 2018 Prospect has said that he is inspired by players like Wiggins and Anthony Bennett and seeing them in the NBA makes him work harder. No matter what others say Simi Shittu will keep working on his game “I have to focus on myself and not get caught up in the media.” Good luck young fella!!!

Jahvon Quinerly plays his AAU ball with Sports U alongside Naz Reid and Atiba Taylor. The young guard is best when creating off the dribble and has the ability to score the ball on all three levels of the court. While many young guards are still finding their style of play, Quinerly is already a polished player with major upside.
Francis Okoro is a 6’8 8th grader who blocks absolutely everything. Francis Okoro is a highly ranked player in the Class of 2019 and has a developing offensive game.
