#E75 Frosh/Soph - First Impressions

The tenth annual Elite 75 Showcase – Frosh/Soph Edition lived up to its hype, in more ways than one.

Over the course of the last decade, the event has annually attracted the very best underclassmen in New England and been a who’s who of the region’s future stars.

While the perception of many is typically based on comparing the talent in attendance against each other, for NERR, the initial comparison is more holistic as our first impression is typically more about how the collective talent measures up against years past.

Admittedly, there have been years when that first impression can be underwhelming…but this was not one of those years.

#E75 Frosh/Soph – 2020 Frontcourt

...Kareem Reid, Putnam Science – This New York native recently arrived at PSA and he has star written all over him. He has the body type, mobility, and athleticism to translate to the very highest levels but the southpaw can also face the basket to make plays and has some shooting touch to develop.

Richard Springs, MacDuffie – Another first year prep product, Springs is a true sophomore who not only has good size, a strong build, and a budding versatile skill set but also the exemplary motor and toughness that makes it all the more likely that he’ll realize his significant potential in the...

#E75 Frosh/Soph - 2020 Wings

...Putnam Science Academy had two of the very best in newly arrived Anthony Thomas and Worcester native Demarr Langford. While both have high ceilings, and should be a nice compliment to each other over the next three years, their games are still very different.

Thomas is a straight wing. He’s a slasher who is always in attack mode and very long, not just in his arms, but in the way in which he covers the court with instinctive economy of motion. His total impact doesn’t always live up to his potential just yet, but it’s very clear he’s just beginning to scratch the surface of his ability.

Langford has a similar upside with a rock solid build, the athleticism to elevate in traffic, and good hands. He’s not as aggressive with the ball just yet but has the maturity to impact the game in a variety of...

#E75 Frosh/Soph - 2020 Guards

...Nevertheless, there were still a select few that proved to be in a league of their own.

Worcester Academy guard Quest Harris arrived with arguably the biggest resume to date given his experience at both the prep school and AAU levels. He didn’t rest on his reputation once he arrived though as he backed it up from start to finish. Harris is strong, aggressive, and explosive on both ends of the floor. He’s a leader and winner who is genuinely upset with losing, is a pest defensively, and a playmaker offensively.

First year Master’s guard Taelon Martin is perhaps the most naturally gifted of the bunch. He’s long, athletic, and smooth. He goes through the lane with the type of long, graceful strides that can’t be taught and then elevates for some explosive finishes. As his jumper continues to improve and he cultivates that...

#E75 Frosh/Soph - 2021 Frontcourt

The class of 2021 has officially arrived, making their debut at last weekend’s #E75 Frosh/Soph Showcase and that means we are getting our very first look at New England's new freshmen class.

Here's a look at some of the frontcourt prospects, both forwards and big wings, that caught our attention.

Best of the Bigs

Frank Kepang, MacDuffie – He was the most impactful freshman in the building. His physical tools are well beyond most in the class with good size and a chiseled build but his motor is probably his best weapon. He plays with constant effort, is relentless on the boards, and a consistent shot-blocking threat on the defensive end. He’s still a work in progress offensively but there were early signs of being able to turn his left shoulder in the post and plenty of massive dunks in between.

#E75 Frosh/Soph - 2021 Backcourt
When it comes to breaking down the best guards in New England’s freshmen class there really isn’t any denying that Terrence Clarke is on a level all of his own to start. His positional size, length, the versatility of his skill set, and even his potential defensive contributions, are all unmatched at this point.

So too is his reputation. In fact, Clarke is probably as celebrated a young prospect as New England has seen in recent years. He’s still more than two months away from his first high school game but he already owns high major offers, has played on center court in Las Vegas, and been a social media sensation.

At Elite 75, Clarke had moments of brilliance and dominance. His challenge, amidst the type of early microscope that really isn’t fair for someone who is still so young, is to make those moments increasingly frequent and consistent over the course of the next four years.
