Along the way, Fraser picked up offers from the likes of Depaul, Charlotte, Memphis, Georgia Tech and others.

The Young Upside

Boahen played at St Louis Christian last year, and in the Phenom National Showcase. Boahen is a tough minded point guard that has a high GPA and plays with an aggressive style on both ends of the floor. Boahen currently has offers from Niagara and Eastern Kentucky. Look for him to pick up some more, with possibly Ivy League and MEAC schools coming into play as well.

If you have been around college basketball over the last few years, you know the name Melvin Ejim. Ejim played at Iowa St and is currently on the Toronto Raptors D-League team. Well Ejim’s brother Deon plays at Hill Academy. Deon has the same power wing type of game, in the mold of his brother. While young, Ejim will be interesting to watch his brother was over looked, don’t expect Deon to be.


Mountain Mission

Elite Rim Protector
6’10” Jethro Tshisumpa (Arizona State)

There may not be a better rim protector in the country than Tshisumpa. He broke out at the Virginia Top 80, further showed his ability at the NBA Top 100 Camp, and solidified his Top 100 national ranking with committing to the Pac 12s Arizona State. Tshisumpa, is very long, he is very strong, and he is very explosive.

The Dog PG
5’11” Senior Keshon Montague

Montague is a tough nosed point guard that sets the tone on both ends. He is a vocal defender and has a tight handle in the half court. Montague played this summer on the Adidas Gauntlet with UPlay Canada (many of his team mates play for Hill Academy). He carries an offer from Central Connecticut State. Look for that list to rise, there is a lot to like with this one.

Under Recruited HM Wing
6’5” Senior Harold Baruti

Baruti is a high flyer, he can get off the floor…always has been able to. Now instead of athletic stretch four, he has worked himself into a true wing. Baruti defends with a purpose, he makes shots with range, and really gets out and finishes with authority in transition. He carries offers from UNC Wilmington and SMU and expect to see more coming to him in that range of schools. His ceiling his high.

Skilled Forward
