Simpson Elite Media was able to head up to Zion Benton Fall League to watch some high school basketball and there was a lot of kids with potential and talent but these young talents stood out to me.
Warren High School
Jaxson Davis 2027
The eight grader is ahead of his time. Great feel for the game, good pace, can handle the rock, and can shoot it with the best of them!
Adrian Serrano 2026
The incoming freshman is a wizard with the rock, does really well breaking down defenders and making the correct reads, can shoot it off the bounce and the kid is a sleeper, will shock a lot of people.
Lake Forest Academy
Rroni Radoniqi 2024
Quick, fast and make steady reads, good with handling ball pressure, can score off the bounce, finish well around the basket, and can create for others, fun to watch!
Simon Weisserman 2023
The 6-foot-7 big has been getting a lot of attention from college coaches, has great hands, can score inside-out, scores very well around the basket and protects the rim very well.
Rashad Smith 2023
Intense-hard nose defender, does well turning the ball handler, he's disruptive, active, has a decent handle and can shoot the ball well.
Stevenson High School
Rocco Pagliocca 2026
Not easily rattled, plays at his own pace, can score the ball at all three levels, can finish through contact, and does very well getting teammates involved, kid is special.
Aidan Bardic 2025
The smooth lefty is very shifty and dribbles with a purpose, getting to his spots and taking care of the ball at such a young age, shoots the ball well, can finish with a layup, floater or a pull up, the backcourt of Pagliocca and Bardic will be fun to watch in the future.
St. Viator High School
Joey Hernandez 2025
Does well with directing traffic, attacking the rim down hill, taking and making tough shots, quick shifty guard and very exciting to watch.
Mitch Humphrey 2024
New comer Mitch Humphrey was a steal, this kid shoots lights out from anywhere on the floor, he hunts the three and blow by defenders when being played tight, his attention to detail on his footwork is something special. I look forward to watching more of him.
Zion Benton High School
Amare Simpson 2025
Quick guard with a nice dribble, handles pressure well, explosive scorer, shoots the three very well, and is very disruptive on the defensive end.
