Jaron Hopkins, 6-foot-4 Mesa (Ariz.) Dobson 2013: Hopkins is as smooth a penetrating combo guard as you will find on the AAU circuit, and he looked better than any prospect on the floor in the morning session, although his Compton Magic squad fell to Ohio Basketball Club. Hopkins isn’t looking to shoot jumpers on the offensive end, he wants to get to the painted area and score it.

OVERVIEW
Jaron Hopkins currently holds offers from 11 Division 1 basketball programs, and the number will continue to grow. The 6’4 G/F played his junior season at Arizona’s Basha High and, along with former Basha teammate Torren Jones, will take his senior season play over to Dobson High (Chandler Az.). There are rumors Hopkins and Jones have some interest in hoop powerhouse Westwind Prep, but currently talk of further transfer remains speculative. At 6’4 185lbs Hopkins brings significant versatility in manning the 1-3. Always on the verge of creating his next highlight, Hopkins is equal parts lethal scorer and selfless distributor. As he and Jones join Arizona State commit Kodi Justice the trio quickly establish Dobson as the prohibitive favorite for the ’12-’13 Arizona Division 1 state championship. (more…)

Marcus Lee is an exceptional athlete with fabulous body control and loves to blaze up and down the court. He’s an exceptional finisher in transition and surprisingly nimble for a post player. He showed off an impressive drop step one hander and uses his long reach to rebound and block shots.”

OVERVIEW


 

As of October 2011 Deer Valley’s High’s Marcus Lee was a relatively unknown 3-star Power Forward on the fringe of the recruiting scene. Lee’s Northern California campus sits in the city of Antioch (’10 pop. 102,000) and at the onset of the ’11-’12 Wolverines’ season would have barely registered a blip on the radar for most basketball scouts. Eight months later, and Lee rates a 4-star via Rivals.com, has skyrocketed to the #33 spot in the Class of ’13 and is among the most sought after big men in the country. Lee holds offers from much of the West coast, Duke, Kansas and recently spoke with representatives of the University of Kentucky. The “potential” label appears near Lee’s name as much if not more than that of any player in his Class. An exceptional overall athlete, Lee also carries clout on the HS Volleyball circuit. The 6’10 Middle Blocker registered 306 Kills (’11-’12) for the 37-4 Deer Valley team. Similar to Long Beach Poly’s 4-star Power forward (and previously profiled) Jordan Bell, ’10 Center Angelo Chol, and ’12 Power forward Skylar Spencer, Lee’s path to national prominence was paved by his efforts as a defensive stopper. Bell’s name will again appear in this piece as similarities between the two abound.
