Mid-Atlantic Select AAU Team Prospects update,Several Eye-popping prospects include Jalen Myrie and Daquan Sampson

Tons of good info on the upcoming Mid-Atlantic Select AAU Team....


Daquan Sampson, F, Lawrence Academy (MA): Sampson (6-7, 190) is long and athletic and runs the floor well for a player of his size. He flashes sufficient quickness off the dribble and has a solid mid-range jumper. Arguably the most impressive player in the practice's first half, Sampson will continue to develop into a nice prospect with some added weight and muscle. A Maryland native who is attending boarding school at Lawrence Academy, the forward already holds an offer from Holy Cross and has interest from Bucknell, Colgate, Elon, Lehigh and Northeastern.

Jalen Myrie, PG, Lawrence Academy (MA): Myrie is a point-guard prospect who could easily combo. While his ball-handling and pure-passing skills are simply above average, the Maryland native has an exceptional on-floor presence. Myrie is clearly a floor leader, and he seemed to take that role very seriously during practice, even during warm-up drills. He was vocal in calling out screens and led by example on defense, where his smart and active play rubbed off on teammates. Several schools are keeping tabs on Myrie: Boston University, Missouri State and Robert Morris are all in the mix, along with Mount St. Mary's and Quinnipiac.

Lavon Long, F, Mount St. Joseph: Long (6-6, 225) is a versatile player who had to assume a big man's role during the high school season. But he undoubtedly has the ball-handling ability and athleticism to be a productive wing-forward in college. Long has a strong lower body and a take-no-prisoners attitude on defense. The key for him will be making smart decisions on offense and developing a consistent jumper. Long claims offers from several mid-major programs.

Doug Chappell, G, Episcopal (VA): Chappell (6-1, 175) is a classic combo-guard prospect. Currently receiving interest from multiple Patriot League and Conference USA programs, he is a dependable outside shooter and always catches the ball in a dangerous position. Chappell has a great motor and is always moving on both sides of the ball. While he does not have big-time explosiveness or athleticism, college coaches will surely appreciate his work ethic and solid fundamentals.

Lloyd Howell, G, St. Alban's (D.C.): Howell (6-4, 170) is a surprisingly long guard prospect who has a quick first step and finishes very well around the rim. He did not shoot the ball from outside much during practice, but that's because he was making smart cuts and easily gaining penetration. Still, Howell is very skinny and would really benefit from a good weight-training program. Harvard, Princeton, Stony Brook and UMBC have all shown interest.

Mike Wolfe, F, Georgetown Prep: Wolfe (6-8, 195) is another long and sinewy forward prospect who is currently attracting interest from Holy Cross and Radford. Practicing on his home floor, Wolfe displayed a few very nice post moves, suggesting that he can play the four spot in college. One weakness for Wolfe is his face-up defense; he's fine in the paint, but he needs to use his feet better when guarding away from the hoop.

Kofi Andoh, G, C.H. Flowers: In his coach's words, Andoh (6-3,180) is a "glue guy." No one tool -- shooting, ball-handling or athleticism -- stands out with Andoh, but he plays a hard-nosed and versatile game. The guard prospect plays aggressive defense and takes advantage of scoring opportunities on offense. Others seem to feed off his attitude and effort, but he must stay focused all game long for it to pay off. Brown and Howard have shown interest in the C.H. Flowers guard.
