Prospect Report: Early June Roundup

By JOSH STIRN and ERIK LARSON

Here’s a brief look at some of the players the DMVelite staff scouted this past week in summer league, AAU and workout action:

2014 The Heights 6’3 SG Isaiah Grigsby - Grigsby is a very long and wiry shooting guard who excels at getting into the lane. Against O’Connell on Saturday, he dropped 16 points and nearly led The Heights to an upset victory. His biggest problem right now is his lack of outside shot. He rarely attempts to shoot jumpers and O’Connell was able to slow him down by switching to a 2-3 zone in the second half. Grigsby will also need to get much stronger to finish in the lane at the next level, but already has a nice floater and displays great body control.

Omogbo Heading To Prep School

By MARCUS HELTON

Princeton Day Academy 2013 forward Emmanuel Omogbo signed with Robert Morris during the early signing period, but he’s decided to make one more stop before heading to college.

The 6-foot-8, 210-pounder said he’ll be taking a post graduate year at Kiski Prep (Pa.), which is located 40 miles east of Pittsburgh.

“It’s just one more year for me to get better,” Omogbo said Friday night.

Omogbo – who turned 18 last Tuesday – began to harness his vast athletic potential during his lone season at Princeton Day, averaging 14.2 points per game. In addition to his athleticism, Omogbo is a high-motor player with a developing offensive game. He said he's also planning to play AAU this summer, although he hasn't decided on a team yet.

Dion Wiley Chooses Maryland

By MARCUS HELTON

Potomac (Md.) 2014 guard Dion Wiley put an unexpected end to his recruitment by verbally committing to the University of Maryland on Friday morning.

Rumors of Wiley’s commitment began to trickle out on Thursday night, and he confirmed the news in a text message Friday morning. He'd originally said he didn't intend to commit to a school until after the AAU campaign.

Wiley averaged 17.8 points per game this past season to lead the Wolverines to a runner-up finish in the Maryland Class 3A state title game. He chose the Terrapins over Georgetown, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, Miami and North Carolina State, to name a few.
