A complete list of Pennsylvania’s Rising Seniors to watch will be out in the coming weeks, just in time for the AAU season to kickoff. Who is playing for who? What Spring & Summer events will Pennsylvania’s NEXT crop of stars be at? Prep Scene will be your number 1 source of information in 2017.
After the NCAA’s first live period April 21-23, 2017, don’t be surprised if Junior- Brandon Stone notches a Power 5 Conference offer to go along with Youngstown State, Mount St. Mary’s, Robert Morris, Duquesne and soon to be others. If last AAU seasons’ progression is any indication of what’s to come… Look Out. Last summer, Stone’s performances improved with each passing game/tournament. From spring to summer you could see his confidence grow as he began to get just how good he could be. As an underclassman, Stone was once assured to need a year of prep to prepare for the physicality of the college game. However, an effective weight program and another summer of growth may just change a few minds. The pride of Southmoreland is a long and lanky sharpshooter with the ability to put the ball on the floor and create his own shot. Trust me, there is not much space needed to get that shot off either at 6-10. Stone averaged 26 points per game for coach Muccino, this season while shooting 35% from beyond.
