Terance Mann - 6'5", 195 pound Class of 2015 G, BABC 17u, Tilton School (MA) - For the last year and a half Mann has worked at becoming a lead guard, a guy that can score and pass from the point guard position. The process is still ongoing, but his progress is obvious; Terance works at getting others involved while mixing his own offense.
In terms of Mann's shooting, his jumper has a little hitch, but he's releasing it with confidence. Versus zone, Mann displays a good ball fake, before moving the rock. In terms of driving against zone, Mann will hit the seams, but at times seems somewhat hesitant to do so - that's a next step in his development, in addition to expanding his pick and roll instincts.
Terance Mann, off the bounce.
According to Mann, "FSU, Marquette, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Arizona State" comprise his school list.
LuWane Pipkins - 5'10", 160 pound Class of 2015 PG, Mac Irvin Fire 17u, Bogan (IL) - An oral commit to UMass, Pipkins should continue that program's trademark of fast, tough, penetrating point guards. He's a warrior.
On-ball defense is a strength of Pipkins, who makes foe's miserable advancing
the rock. He's also capable of canning long balls regularly. In terms
of shooting, mid-rangers have to be improved upon.
It also reminds one of Rondo's in that he must become a better shooter, particularly being more consistent. Phillips understands that fact. Add the need to get stronger to Terrence's development list.
Drexel and Peach State schools Georgia State and UGA, along with Auburn and others have offered him scholarships.
Cody Riley - 6'8", 230 pound Class of 2017 F, California
Supreme 17u, Sierra Canyon (CA) - Just a rising sophomore, Riley is more
than holding his own against older players. His primary default is spot
up, three point shooting, but Cody also slashes to the cup, where he can
finish or drop off to teammates.
Defensively, Cody must become more dialed in. He will throw shots at the rim spectacularly, but needs to stay in front of his man better.
Reportedly, schools along the West Coast are starting to sniff on Riley. Expect a deluge of institutions to pursue him going forward.
