Hoophall emerging prospects

Underclassmen like Chris McCullough and Jahlil Okafor have established reputations, but other underclassmen such as Victor Law used the Hoophall to help establish their names.

Victor Law has a game that matches his athleticism.

Victor Law

2014, 6-7, 195-pounds, small forward, Chicago (Ill.) St. Rita

A bouncy athlete with a great motor, Law pulled off an impressive double-double of 17 points and 19 rebounds in his game at the Hoophall. Besides his finishing in transition and constant rebounding, Law also impressed with his ball handling and passing in transition. Throw in a made three-pointer and a strong defensive performance, and you have a prospect with a well rounded game to go with his athleticism.

At this point, Law has offers from Virginia Tech, Providence, DePaul, Oklahoma, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Dayton and Harvard. The four-star prospect will enter the 2014 rankings next week.

Terance Mann

2015, 6-5, 180-pounds, shooting guard, Tilton (N.H.) School

Mann was good in the half court but outstanding in the transition game. He was fluid and quick with the basketball while maintaining great court vision. His most impressive stat was four assists to zero turnovers. The son of a coach, Mann has a mature game for a sophomore.

Boston College is the one school who has offered while Iowa, Maryland, West Virginia and Georgia Southern are showing interest. Mann is a four-star prospect in the 2015 class.

Charles Matthews

2015, 6-5, 190-pounds, shooting guard, Chicago (Ill.) St. Rita

Playing primarly point guard in his Hoophall game, Matthews is a three-position perimeter player like Mann. He handles well with either hand and has court vision and feel for passing the ball. His shot wasn’t falling but he looked good creating space off the dribble and shooting the pull up jumper. Defensively, his length causes problems.

Matthews has a more established reputation than Law and Mann and carries a No. 17 247Sports ranking. Matthews only further solidified his high ranking with his play. Arizona, Illinois, Purdue and SMU have offered him so far. Ohio State, Michigan State, Kansas and Missouri are showing interest. Many more schools will soon be in the hunt.
