Ryze Hoops Tip-Off Sleepers

2023 6’5 G Noah Van Bibber (Team Curry)

This Team Curry roster is so talented & deep with all 10 players being really good, you may not see big numbers from many of them due to their balance. With that said, Noah may have flown a little under the radar this weekend but he’s an athletic 2 guard who shoots the cover off the ball. Noah has a high arching, soft shot with good mechanics which allowed him to shoot 40% from 3 at Concord Academy. This weekend against the Atlanta Allstars Noah played his best game: hitting multiple 3s, made the right reads in the halfcourt, finished in transition & defended the ball well. Noah currently has no offers but a solid amount of interest; expect that interest to turn into offers by the summer.

2024 6’6 F LJ Moore (AC Georgia)

LJ’s motor really caught my attention in AC Georgia’s game against Pro One. Moore was relentless on the glass on both sides of the ball. At 6’6 LJ seems to be developing a nice combination of post & perimeter skills. He looked comfortable putting the ball on the floor and driving from the perimeter along with finishing through contact around the rim. LJ looked really comfortable driving into the lane & pulling up for a little mid-range jump shot from just inside the free throw line. Intriguing 2024 prospect who has a chance to be a well-recruited player in the near future.

2024 6’4 G Chase Tyler (Wood Elite)

I really love Chase Tyler’s competitiveness. Every time I’ve seen him he seems to play with this chip on his shoulder, out to prove to everyone he can play at a high level. To be honest, I never got the chance to see him during HS season & he’s already made a strong impression on me through the first two weeks of the AAU season. Against OTP, Chase led Wood Elite with 17 points & was a key part of their comeback victory. Chase is comfortable playing off the dribble, makes open jump shots & plays with a nonstop motor. Chase Tyler is becoming a name a lot of people will know in Georgia’s 2024 class.

2023 6’1 PG Kevon Vanderhost (Team Curry)

Kevon was one of the many Team Curry players to have an impressive weekend. Against the Atlanta Timberwolves Kevon scored 21 points extremely efficiently. Kevon is an athletic guard who’s a crafty finisher around the rim & shoots the ball with a lot of confidence. I loved Kevon’s change of pace ability making it a tough task to keep him in front. Not to mention his passing ability, especially in transition was impressive as well. He was constantly finding his teammates for lobs & open 3s. Kevon currently holds offers from Saint Peter’s, FIU, NC A&T & Eastern Kentucky but expect more schools to enter the mix this AAU season.

2025 6’9 F Harvin Guevara (OTP)

Harvin was playing up an age group all weekend & showed impressive flashes of how good he can be in the near future. Harvin had a couple wow moments with his ball handling & shot making ability at 6’9 that allowed a sneak peek for how good he can be soon.  While still overall a raw prospect, Harvin producing while playing up against quality competition is always a good sign. While only a freshman, Harvin didn’t see many minutes with his varsity team at Solid Rock Academy, so he’s pretty much unknown to the state. Harvin will be an intriguing player to track over the next few years as he continues to develop his game & polish his skills now at Carolina Basketball Academy.
