Mid-Major Signing Day Winners
Signing Day has come and gone with more signings still going down this week and the weekend but let's take a look at some of the winners from the big day.
Sebastian Akins, Denver - Even though he tells HoopSeen he will sign next week, Sebastian Akins was a huge get for Denver University. Ranked at #152 in the HoopSeen national rankings, Akins is a guy that was outstanding on our HoopSeen platform this past season. He was named as our Top Point guard for the HoopSeen Association and to the First Team All-HoopSeen Association team. A guy that can control the pace and tempo of the game and is a threat to score from all spots on the floor, Akins had a monster travel season and saw it translate to being able to play at a high level in college.
Bobby Cannon, New Orleans - The long and slender Cannon has always been a guy that we have had thought had a lot of upside but his play for Garner Road at our Carolina Jam really showed us what Cannon can be at the next level. He is able to block shots, rebound and score from the elbows. He can get out and run the floor and make plays on both ends. There is a lot of upside that we spoke about earlier with his length and the coaches at New Orleans have done a fantastic job of recruiting North Carolina lately. Cannon will be another guy from the state that should have a really competitive career down there in the Crescent City.
