Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Top Performers Part 3

Luis Reysono (Northeast Finest)

The Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Division produced so many fresh faces. Here’s our final look at the top performers in this age group. 

Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 8th Grade Top Performers Part 3 

Luis Reynoso Forward (Northeast Finest)- I can’t imagine it being a better 8th grade prospect in New Hampshire. Reynoso packs a unique combination of size, ability and basketball IQ. One of his best attributes is his ability to see the floor and pass the rock. He’s truly a natural about getting other teammates involved. He also can carry the scoring load, which he needs to attempt more often. When his frame fills out and all the facets of his game mature you could looking at someone very special. Remember where you heard it first.

Marty Silvera Guard (Northeast Finest)- Silvera is a cleaver point guard that can also switch to the scoring mode. He was able to beat defenders into the lane and finish after contact or drop off dimes. I like how he attacks off the bounce and controls the tempo.
Alex Stoddard Guard (Northeast Finest)- Stoddard’s job is to stretch the defense and he does it well. He has good form on his stroke. Even when he missed it looked good leaving his hands. He also seems to have a few more inches to go in terms of size which should just increase his stock.

Jorman Solano Forward (Hilltoppers Heat)- The big guy in the middle gave his best effort against the eventual champs Harlem Jets. He pounded them in the paint for 16 points. His presence and soft touch on the blocks was one of the reasons they made it to the final four.
Eric Dixon Forward (Philly Triple Threat)- Dixon put together a good weekend including a 16 point outing against the Harlem Jets and 24 markers against Bos Basketball. I like his size and improved footwork. This kid is very hungry and should be turning into a good prospect down the road.

Dyondre Dominquez Forward (Bos Basketball)- Speaking of Bos Basketball their forward Dyondre is still putting in the work with his new team. The lefty continues to extend his game to the perimeter. He drained 4 treys in their loss to Philly Triple Threat. The #1 prospect in Boston’s Class of 2019 continues to shine when he comes to the Spotlight. 

 Lucas Monroe Forward (Team Phenom)- Monroe finally made his Spotlight debut and showed some signs of being a real good prospect. For starters you can’t teach his size and the fact that he wants to push the rock means his game will translate to the next level. He’s very unselfish sometimes I think to a fault because he has the ability to score the ball more. 

Chris Ings Guard (Team Phenom)- The explosive combo guard had his best outing versus Newark Pharoah when he tallied 17 points in their overtime loss. He continues to make strides after we saw him at the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp.
