2015 Malachi Richardson

2015 Malachi Richardson
6’6″ Wing

LNH Notes: Skilled wing with great size. Very good outside shooter with ability to improve on the attack. New Jersey kid who can be a star on the court, but is an unselfish player with a priority of helping his team win games. Malachi is a highly talented player, but we also really like what we’ve seen in terms of how he conducts himself on and off the court.

+ Nike EYBL: Played for Team Final alongside Gopher 2014 target Ja’Quan Newton.
+ June 2013 rankings: 11, 19, 19 (average = 16.3) per ESPN/Scout/Rivals. We see him as a legit top 20 talent.
+ LNH has seen in person.

2014 Ja’Quan Newton

2014 Ja’Quan Newton
6’2″ Combo Guard

Committed to Miami (Fla.).

LNH Notes: More of a slashing 2-guard look at this point, but PG / combo in college is likely. Aggressive & talented attacker; outside shooting hasn’t been strong.
+ June 2013 – Teamed with 2014 Reid Travis during NBPA Top 100 camp to win the championship
+ June 2013 rankings: 67, 54, 41 (average = 54) per ESPN/Scout/Rivals. Expect that average to improve moderately.
+ July 2013 – Newton helped Team Final into Nike EYBL Peach Jam final four before losing to CP3.
+ Philly kid; has interest in playing with Isaiah Whitehead in college.

2014 Nate Mason

2014 Nate Mason
6’0″ Guard

LNH Notes: Combo guard who may do quite well as a point guard in college. Small, but can be tough and assertive. Sometimes looks great, sometimes not so great – certainly a player we could see sneaking up Minnesota’s list of 2014 targets. – 7/19/13
+ Nike EYBL: CP3 in 2013; Southern Stampede in 2012.
+ June 2013 rankings: Not rated.
+ Averaged 12.1 ppg & 3.0 apg in 21.2 mpg during the 2013 EYBL regular season. Approximately one-third of his FGA were 3FGA (20/63 for 31.7%) and he shot a respectable 51.4% eFG, up considerably from 2012 when he shot just 42.3% eFG. Nice 2.7:1 assist:turnover ratio.
