Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy had an influx of underclassmen this year after losing seven Division I players last year. The youngsters weren't ready for play on the national level, but Coach Isaac Pitts expects the talented bunch to be ready next year.
"We went with a youth movement to build continuity after losing so many top players last year," said Coach Pitts. "We didn't play all over the country like usual so a lot of our players aren't that well known. Next year we do want to play on a national level."
The leader of this group of prospects is 2013 big man Jordan Robinson. At 6-foot-8, 230-pounds, Robinson is described as a rebounding machine by Pitts.
He listed Charlotte, Duquesne, Hofstra and Princeton as the group of schools strongly pursuing Robinson at this point.
Three underclassmen around Robinson have impressed the coaches that have been to Quality Education to watch them workout.
The schools on that list are Charlotte, Dayton, Seton Hall and VCU.
2014 prospect Ibrahiima Diallo is a 6-foot-10, 215-pound power forward with an advanced feel for the game for a prospect who just came over from Senegal.
Another 214 prospect is 6-foot-1, 175-pound combo guard Hakeem Coney. A strong all around player, Cooney uses his strength to excel on defense and at getting to the basket.
2015 wing player Dei'Shawn Anderson is a 6-foot-4 athlete who shoots with range and is a strong rebounder for his size.
