Greg Brown – Texas Titans
The 5-star forward from Austin, Texas is on many schools’ radars and he has not disappointed in EYBL play this year. Brown is also teammates with Cade Cunningham, who is also a top 10 player in the class of 2020.
In an interview with Adam Zagoria, Brown discusses how Memphis is working hard to recruit him and how special it is to have NBA legends like Memphis coaches Mike Miller and Penny Hardaway at his games.
This past weekend, Brown’s Texas Titans went 3-1 with wins over Team Melo, Pro Skills, and Bluff City Legends. In each of their wins, his team scored over 90 points. Their only loss came in the closing game of the weekend to Team Final 77-72. Overall, the Titans outscored their opponents 355-290. Brown only played 1 minute in the 23 point blowout win against Bluff City Legends, which hurt hurt his point per game totals, but over the course of the other three games he tallied 46 points and 21 rebounds. Through the first two weekends of EYBL play, Brown is averaging 27 points and 13 rebounds per 40 minutes of play.
Jalen Green – Team Why Not
Green played two weekends ago with the Oakland Soliders EYBL team, but this week played with Russell Westbrook’s Team Why Not. He averaged 23.3 points for the weekend between three games. On Saturday he went off against the Indy Heat in a 16 point loss, scoring 32 points on 62.5% shooting from the field.
High school hoops analysts think very highly of Green and all signs point to him being an elite scorer at the collegiate level. In addition to Memphis, he has all the big schools after him including Kansas, Florida St., and Kentucky.
Isaiah Todd – Nightrydas Elite
Isaiah Todd is a highly sought after big man who recently published a top 10 list that includes the Memphis Tigers. According to a recent interview with Adam Zagoria, Todd talks to both Kansas and Kentucky daily, so those are obviously two huge sources of competition for the big man. In Indy over the weekend, Todd averaged 20.25 points per game and shot 6 of 18 from three point range. Todd also hauled in nearly 11 rebounds per contest as the Nightrydas went 3-1 over the trip.
He looks really comfortable away from the basket and has a deep range jumper where he elevates nicely, providing a shot that is extremely hard to defend with his height.
Ziaire Williams – Oakland Soliders
Ziaire Williams has been tearing up the EYBL circuit so far this year. He averaged 28 points and 7 rebounds last weekend. In Atlanta a few weeks ago he averaged 25 points and 6 rebounds to go with 8-17 shooting from three. He earned 1st team honors that weekend. Many people expect for his stock to rise through the summer.
Right now Memphis is in the mix with UNC, Oregon, UCLA among others.
Chris Moore – Woodz Elite
Chris Moore is a guy from across the bridge into Arkansas who has been on the rise recently and has been getting a lot more attention. His AAU team, Woodz Elite, won all four of their games in Indiana, where he averaged 15 points and 4.5 rebounds. In Woodz Elite’s game victory over Vegas Elite, he tallied 26 points on 12-17 shooting.
Moore is being recruited by several SEC schools that include Auburn, Ole Miss, and Tennessee.
