#PBCHOOPS “Showtime” PM Session 2 Wrap Up

Report by #PBCHOOPS Scout Dusty Pflugner –

After watching several hours of workouts and live play, I came up with 5 players who really caught my eye throughout the course of the day. Some with the ability to play at the next level, and others with an opportunity to help make an impact on their High School teams. Please keep in mind I saw the red and gray teams far more than I did yellow and purple.

September 2018 Recruiting Update - Richard Charles

North Miami Senior High School class of 2019 SG Richard Charles has solidified himself as one of the top shooters in the state of Florida and heading into his senior year with the Pioneers, Richard is definitely on the radar of quite a few schools. Standing a long 6' 5" with seemingly unlimited range, Charles has shown a great ability to knock down shots off catch and shoot. As one of the senior leaders on this North Miami team, it will be up to him to produce night in, night out if his team has any plans on success and making a deep run in the playoffs.


February 2018 Recruiting Update - Trevin Levy

6' 3" 2018 Atlantic Christian wing Trevin Levy has been a key part of the Sharks regular season and playoff run this season. Levy has often played out of position for Atlantic Christian, many times taking the oppositions biggest player on defense in an effort to slow them down while still contributing on the offensive end.

February 2018 Recruiting Update - Shaquille Peters

Class of 2018 Shaquille Peters has quietly been having a solid year for Royal Palm Beach . The 6' 5" wing is averaging 16.7 points and 6.6 rebound per game for the Wildcats, performing his best in the teams biggest games. He went for 23 and 21 points in back to back games against Boynton Beach and #2 Forest Hill last week.

January 2018 Recruiting Update - Marcus Pelissier

Class of 2018 CG Marcus Pelissier has had an excellent career at Saint Andrew's School in Boca Raton. A 4 year varsity player, he is averaging 18.2 points and 5.4 rebound per game.

Marcus has interest from several schools at the Division 3 level including Luther College, Lake Forest College, Elms College, Stevenson University and Valley Forge University. Marcus will also travel to the Pacific Northwest to workout with Portland State University Men's team this spring.


January 2018 Recruiting Update - Dante Moses

Class of 2018 SG Dante Moses has been having an MVP type season so far averaging 25.6 points per game. A walking highlight standing 6' 4", Moses is a gifted shooter with off the charts athleticism. It's no surprise his recruitment is starting to shift into high gear as the regular season closes out and Inlet Grove looks to secure it's first district title to advance into the playoffs.


#PBCHOOPS Jump Start Recap Sat Jan 7, 2017

Basketball Development and #PBCHOOPS presented Jump Start, a middle school boys evaluation event designed primarily for players in Palm Beach County but also attracted talent from across the state. In it's first year we were able to secure the premiere and most well respected talent evaluator in Florida, Tony Perkins, to not only evaluate talent but provide much needed feedback to players and parents. 33 players where in attendance making the inaugural event highly anticipated.

Now What??

It's a hard sell changing the mindset ingrained in so many not only travel team coaches and directors but parents that the play as many games as you can every weekend model, in front of nobody is the way to go. A slight argument can be made for lower grades (although we believe development should replace multiple tournaments) but when a team is in high school, it is necessary to branch out and get exposed to various levels of competition and exposure. This exposure makes the player and respective teams better which in-turn raises the level of play locally in our high school game.

Who's going to step up?

At the start of last years high school season the biggest name from the class of 2017 was Kaleb Fitzgerald, and rightly so. He had proven himself to be one of the top point guards in the state, widely recognized by colleges and scouts alike as such. Very few outside of Palm Beach County, however knew the names Trent Frazier, Jules Jasmine & Leonard Thorpe. Fast forward one year later after a solid 2014-15 high school season and jam packed AAU Summer circuit schedule.
