It was the most unique travel season of our lifetimes this summer with no live periods for college coaches. That means many prospects in the 2022 class remain relatively under the radar in their recruitments for the next level. Let’s take a look at some prospects who could see their stock rise in a big way this high school season.
Tyrese Elliot (Pictured, Grayson High School)
Elliot is making the transition over to Grayson this year after playing the first two years of his high school career in Alabama. Expect for him to make a big impact on a Rams team that lost a lot of its state runner-up team from last season. Elliot is a really talented scorer at 6-foot-2 and a gifted playmaker. He received early offers from Alabama, Alabama A&M, Ole Miss and UAB, but we expect that list to grow over the next year.
Sammy Moss (East Coweta High School)
Moss put up some of the biggest scoring outings at LakePoint this summer as well. His 41-point performance at the LakePoint Live Showcase II showed off his ability to light up defenses from three-point range as well as his knack for getting out and scoring in transition. He’s a great athlete at 6-foot-4 with a ton of potential on the defensive end. Boston College and Oklahoma State were his first two scholarship offers.
Daniel Pounds (Forest Park High School)
Pounds possesses the size, strength and athleticism combination that college coaches often look for in the evaluation process. His skill level continues to improve as does his production on the court. He’s the only prospect on this list without a scholarship offer at the moment, but that could change quickly this high school season.
Josh Reed (Pace Academy)
Don’t be surprised if you search Reed’s name this time next year and his name is placed inside national rankings at the major recruiting services. He’s a 6-foot-7 small forward with a ton of versatility to his game. He’s a complete scorer, but also very gifted at making plays for others. He’s a versatile defender as well and really strong on the boards. He has a long list of offers with Boston College and Xavier being the most recent and the first high-major programs to make the move.
Jameel Rideout (Discovery High School)
Rideout received his first offer from Charleston Southern not too long, but that won’t be the school to jump into his recruitment. The 6-foot-2 point guard carries a 4.2 GPA in the classroom and it shows in the way he runs his team on the court. He’s a really good decision maker and a crafty scorer.
Jaylon Taylor (Buford High School)
Taylor is flying under the radar in a big way in Georgia’s 2022 class. At 6-foot-6, he has the type of length and athleticism as a forward that usually gets college coaches pretty excited. He’s a gifted finisher at the rim and he keeps getting better with his perimeter skills. UAB is in with an offer and expect that list to grow over the next year.
Dylan Wolle (Sequoyah High School)
Not many prospects scored more points inside the LakePoint Sports Champions Center this summer than Wolle. The 6-foot-3 scoring guard has a really smooth jump shot and just has knack for scoring at all levels. Jacksonville and Mercer were the first two schools to offer him a scholarship this summer after a great travel season with Georgia Legacy.
