The point guard is having a big season in LuHi’s inaugural season averaging 13.8 PPG and 6 APG (1st in NIBC) and has been a huge reason for their success. Reid is a quick and explosive player that has elite finishing skills at the hoop and can knock down threes. He has recently picked up offers from Northern Illinois and Eastern Michigan.
Amdy Ndiaye - Long Island Lutheran
The LuHi senior is an energetic player that produces on both ends. He is averaging 8.3 PPG and 5.6 RPG in the NIBC season. He has played a big role in LuHi’s current 17-game winning streak. He uses his size and athleticism to finish strong inside and secure blocks on the defensive end. Ndiaye is currently on an Eastern Michigan visit and has reportedly been in contact With Iowa, UCF, Seton Hall, and more.
Osiris Grady - Wasatch
When you think of high-energy hoopers, think of Osiris Grady. His intensity makes him a scary presence inside and the 6’8” forward has a quick first step. He’s a player that can defend multiple positions due to his size and quickness. He picked up an offer from Southern Mississippi last month.
Drayton Jones - Oak Hill
Jones is a consistent and efficient player. At 6’9” he has the ability to finish strong inside but also can knock down threes at an efficient rate.

Mikkel Tyne - Bishop Walsh
Tyne’s explosive and crafty play allows him to get to the hoop. He has shot the ball very well in NIBC games from beyond the arc at 41% and picks up big buckets when Bishop Walsh needs them most. He picked up an offer from Oral Roberts last summer.
Khalil Arnold - Legacy
Arnold plays poised and in control, allowing him to get to his spots and hit in-rhythm shots. He’s averaging 7.4 PPG, showcasing his shot-making in the mid-range area. His patience and IQ are underrated traits in his game. Arnold has also been fairly productive on the glass for the Lions this season.
