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.

Prospect Report: Day 1 At The Rock

By JOSH STIRN

BELTSVILLE, Md. - The 2013 Rock Summer League kicked off on Thursday night with High Point, Sherwood, Paint Branch, Maret, McNamara, Churchill, O’Connell, Eleanor Roosevelt, Wise, and Bishop Ireton all taking the court.

The first day of action featured plenty of tight games, comeback victories, and a couple of standout performers. Thankfully, none of the games went into overtime as the temperature of the High Point gym seemed to exceed 100 degrees.

Here are some of the players that played well and caught our eye:

2014 6’7 F John King (High Point) - King made his impact felt on the defensive end the entire game with non-stop energy. He never subbed out of the game and picked up a number of steals, blocks, and assists. He also was able to attack the rim off the dribble, score in transition, and looked good rolling off of screens. He’s a long, athletic forward who finished the game with 18 points.

The Rock Summer League Schedule

Schedule for the 2013 Rock Summer League at High Point. The league is split into Division I (DeMatha, DuVal, Bishop McNamara, High Point, Maret, Potomac School, Sherwood, Sidwell Friends, St. Vincent Pallotti and Wise) and Division II (Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Blake, Bishop Ireton, Bishop O'Connell, Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt, Georgetown Prep, Paint Branch, Springbrook, St. Johns and Wildcats). The top 8 teams from each division will make the playoffs, which are scheduled for July 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10.
