2022 HoopSeen Association All 17U team 3rd team

This week, we’ve been rolling out our All-HSA teams for the 2022 travel season. We have already delved into the 15U and 16U divisions, and we’re excited to begin a look at the 17U teams. To kick things off, here’s our 2022 All-HSA 17U third team.

 

If you have missed any of the previous teams that we’ve gone over, you can read them via the links below.

We watched this come full circle for White. He was a totally different player at The Best of the South in July than he was during the first few events we saw him to start the season. White had all of the physical tools. The length, the size and the college-frame and he put it all together in July and college coaches took notice. 

 

During July, he started getting more interest from college programs and had a lot of coaches in attendance at his games. I think what you get with White is a guy that showed us he can knock down mid-range shots, he can score around the rim and he can cause problems on defense with his length and athleticism. 

 

Justin Byerly wrote,  “Not many guys helped their recruitment like Team Wall big man Asa White. He put together a productive weekend. Showed he can make mid-range shots consistently, played with a high motor and was effective defensively for Tony Edward’s squad.”

PSB Atlanta’s Zyere Edwards is another that we’ve loved since the very beginning of the travel season. The great Brianna Patton and I spent a lot of the early portions of the spring raving about Edwards to each other. 

 

His speed and hounding defense are what excited me the most about his game early on. Edwards’ ability to torch nets from the 3-point line sweetened the deal as I saw him do it again and again. There’s a lot to like about his game, and he’ll be a valuable asset to a college team when the time comes. 

 

He started the season off on a strong note with us in the spring, and he ended it with us on an even stronger one in July. After being one of the best players at the Grassroots Basketball Finale in Virginia beach, Edwards has picked up offers from Kenyon, Randolph-Macon, and Bridgewater.

Really, a number of Florida Pro guys could have been selected for this spot. It seemed like they had a different player step into the spotlight at one point or another throughout the summer. However, was his dominant weekend at the Grassroots Basketball Finale to close out the season that landed Koree Cotton here. 

 

During his time in Virginia Beach, Cotton showed his full assortment of skills on both ends of the floor. As a defender, he’s able to use his athletic, 6-foot-6 frame to guard 1-4 at this level because of his ability to swallow up smaller guards and battle with bigger opponents around the basket. Offensively, the lefty can fill it up from all levels and is especially dangerous at the rim. Cotton led Florida Pro on a deep run in Virginia Beach. His weekend was highlighted by a 31-point game, but he also added a couple of 20-point performances and several near double-doubles. 

 

With his switchability and interchangeability on the perimeter, Cotton’s versatile attack should land him plenty of minutes at the next level.

Coming off of a great season with White County in which he was named Region Player of the Year, BCB guard Jadon Yeh carried that momentum into the travel season and excelled on the HoopSeen stage. 

 

Yeh is a guard that any coach would love to have on their team. He’s a guy that provides a calming, steady presence with the ball in his hands, he’s a smart playmaker, and yes coaches, he can shoot it too. Yeh’s offensive game is smooth and well-rounded. One of the underrated parts of his game is his toughness. Yeh’s willing to get his hands dirty and take charges, get on the floor for loose balls, or take on rebounding battles against bigger matchups. 

 

It was only a matter of time before schools took to Yeh. With the help of weekly high-level play over the spring and summer, Yeh’s list of offers has grown to include Maryville College, the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Emmanuel College, and Truett McConnell University. He’s poised to have another big season with White County, and I’d expect more offers to come sooner than later.

Barrett showed out each time he was on the HoopSeen stage. He started things out earning accolades at our Atlanta Jam where he was named to the Top Carolina’s Performers list. Up in Raleigh is where he really made an impression at our Carolina Jam. 

 

Josh Tec wrote , “I nicknamed Barrett the Silent Killer. He just goes out there and produces. No flash, no frills. He just hoops. On Saturday, he finished with 30 points, including a game-winning tip-in. Barrett was one of the most steady guards I saw all weekend. He always had control of the game and seldom made mistakes. He combines a bit of burst and craft to get by defenders and get to advantageous scoring positions. If there was a mold that point guards could be made from, Barrett would be a good person to base it on.” 

 

In Louisville, the following weekend, Barrett also earned some accolades, “Over the last few weekends, Grassroots NC guard Trevor Barrett has been as reliable a player as we’ve seen. Steadily, the 6-foot-3 point guard has seen his stock boost over this spring. He helped lead Grassroots NC to a double-OT win and provided a sense of poise.” 

 

At The Best of the South in July, Barrett earned a spot on our 17-and-under Top Performers from North Carolina list. 

 

“Barrett has been consistent all travel season and on the biggest stage of the summer for independents, he came through again. The thing with Barrett that sticks out is you can tell that he has been playing behind some college-level guys for a few years at Trinity Academy of Raleigh. Noah Ross is headed to UNC-Wilmington and Sam Perez is going to High Point. For the Best of the South, Barrett averaged 16.3 points, 2.7 assists, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game.  This seeps out in Barrett’s game, the way he carries himself on the floor and the way that he can get himself into scoring opportunities. While he is gaining some Division I interest, he looks like he can play at a high-level Division II school or a low-major Division I.” - Justin Byerly
