ROW 2024 : G.Day's 5 Standouts

The class of 2024 Rucker On Wood is an RCS Sports event that played host to 75 players from around the Greater Houston Area. There were 20 of Ball So Hard Top 80 prospects from the senior class that participated. The Rucker On Wood is an open gym pick-up setting with no foul calls. Some kids thrive better than others in a less structured environment when you can get away with certain things. It was still good seeing all the players that did participate and allowing their competitive nature to be on full display, especially during the bracket play of the event.

Now their were more than five players that stood out and notes i took on, but here are the five players in which I will talk about from the class of 2024 Rucker On Wood:

Alantheon Winn 6’5” | Little Cypress Mauriceville BSH80

Alantheon was hurt during the summertime, so most people did not get to see him play. He had a solid junior season for the Bears, and looks to pick up right where he left off. He was showcasing his athleticism and ability to take his man off the dribble. Challenged everything at the rim as well.

Chris McDermott 6’7” | Houston Washington BSH80

Chris is just the ultimate competitor. He doesn’t say much on the floor; he just allows his game to speak for itself. He willed his team to a double overtime victory when his teammates did not give him the ball. He grabbed back-to-back offensive rebounds and scored on back-to-back put-backs to send it into overtime. Then in overtime, he did everything to keep them in the game and hit the game-winning coast-to-coast layup.

Javion Jacobs 6’4” | Humble

Javion is another athletic prospect. This wing was playing both sides of the ball. He showcased active hands and quick lateral movement on the defensive side of the ball. He was able to finish through contact with ease. He is pretty strong for his size and can guard multiple positions on the court. He hit some tough mid-range jumpers also.

Dyllan Thompson 6’6” | Second Baptist BSH80

Dyllan looked really good at the ROW. He is a known perimeter threat, but at the ROW he showcased that he can do more than just shoot the basketball. He was taking his opponent off the dribble and getting to the rim to finish. Playing above the rim as he had multiple dunks throughout the games. Challenging opponents around the rim altering and blocking shots. Be vocal on the floor as well. Excited to check him out this upcoming season for the Eagles of Second Baptist.

Justin Mack 6’1” | Fort Bend Travis BSH80

J-Mack just continues to improve his game. Even in this open gym setting, he was still showcasing his floor general abilities. He figured out who could do what quickly and began to play a two-man game on the floor. He was also directing his teammates in huddles before the game on where to be on the floor. He will be the leader for the Tigers this season.
