MARRIETTA, Ga.- Class of 2013 four-star prospect Detrick Mostella missed the Saturday session of the EliteHoopsShowcase, but did he ever make up for it with a sensational showing on Sunday.
At 6 feet 3, 160 pounds, Mostella, who is from Decatur, Ala., is a natural scorer in a similar fashion as elite 2013 shooting guard Chris Thomas. Mostella has an effortless stroke from long range and has the ability to make the most difficult shots seem easy. With a quick first step and explosiveness off the floor, Mostella scored at will on Sunday and was the top performer in the all star game. He does need to improve his strength and become a more physical and aggressive player when the ball is in his hands, but his scoring ability is at an elite level in the 2013 class.
Alabama, Georgia and Mercer have offered Mostella, and he is getting interest from Auburn, Miami and Michigan. Georgia is currently at the top of his list because they are recruiting him the hardest of all the schools.
Givens caught fire from the outside during the all star game. Prior to that perimeter outburst, most of his damage was done at the rim. At 6-foot-7, he is a top-notch athlete who also has the promise of developing a quality skill package.
Givens listed offers from Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, LSU, Auburn, Ole Miss and Marquette amongst others.
A 6-foot-8 combo forward, Glass produced points on quality change of direction slashes to the basket. When the defense backed off, Glass a 2012 four-star prospect, also knocked down three-pointers. Defensively, his length and athleticism are always a factor.
Likely a spring signee, Glass has an Auburn offer and is also interested in Arkansas, Florida State, Mississippi State, Alabama and Florida.
A reclassified point guard, Motley was slippery with the dribble and consistently worked his way into the heart of the defense. He is still not a physical player, but he is showing signs of improved strength.
He is currently considering offers from Western Kentucky and Chattanooga.
