    Default High School players of Asian descent!

    *New separate thread to keep track of any high school (secondary school) players that are upcoming prospects that are gaining interests to play in NCAA/college or play professional basketball.

    Post news, information, stats, videos, pics, updates, scouting reports, rankings, etc on any players of Asian descent that are playing in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Spain, others countries in Europe, etc!

    I'll start off with some players from the previous college thread:




    Kobe Paras (Philippines) | 6’6" Guard/Forward | Class of 2016 | Cathedral High School, Los Angeles, California
    An athletic wing-type player who plays with tremendous energy. He is dangerous in the open court and attacks the rim with a vengeance. He is a slasher that has great body control and power when he is making his first step going hard into the rim. - ESPN
    • 2014 FIBA Asia U-18 Championship
    • Creighton commit






    Christian David| 6’7" Guard|Class of 2017|Bishop Reding, ON, Canada
    Is quick, slithery, has great range, and can light up a scoreboard, but is often criticized for the slightest bump derailing him. Overall a solid player who can be a great option for any team he plays for especially with his efficient shooting ability and under appreciated blocking ability at his size. - Hoops Hype Canada
    • Butler Commit
    • NCAA Division 1 offers: Baylor, Illinois,Oregon, Michigan, George Washington
    • 2014 Adidas Nations: Canada
    • 2014 Lebron James Camp
    • 2015 BioSteel All-Canadian (Top 24 game)
    • 2017 ESPN 100 Basketball Recruiting






    Christian Juzang | 6’3" Guard| Class of 2016 | Viewpoint High School, Calabasas, California
    Juzang has a nice blend of size, speed and basketball IQ that you like to see in your point guard. At 6’3”, he sees the court over shorter guards, and delivers the ball to where his teammates need it to be effective. He is a very good penetrator, and also is a very good shooter to boot. On defense, he does a really good job with his activity level on the ball (active hands, quick feet). He’s less heralded than some of the other guards in his class, but has the upside to be atop that list. - Full Time Hoops

    Dwight Ramos | 6’5" Forward | Class of 2016 | Walnut High School, Walnut, California
    • NCAA Letters of Interests: UC Santa Barbara, University of Southern California (USC), UC Irvine
      Cal State Fullerton Commit
      *Transferred from Mater Dei High school




    Dwight Ramos | Fr. | G | 6-5 | West Covina, Calif. | Walnut HS
    Ramos recently completed his final season on the court for Walnut High School in Walnut, Calif., and was named to the All-CIF-Southern Section 2015-16 Boys Basketball Division 1A First Team after averaging 28.0 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.5 steals and 1.6 blocks per game.

    The versatile guard scored 40 points or more on five occasions during the year, and helped lead the Mustangs to the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section 2016 Boys Basketball Championships as Walnut ended its season with a 24-6 record.

    "We are very excited about Dwight," Taylor said. "He is a local product with high character that will give us the ability to space the floor with his shooting ability. He has good size and a very good feel for the game. He will have an immediate impact both on and off the floor for our program. "

    Ramos was also named first-team all-Hacienda League for the second time in his career following his senior season.

    "Dwight Ramos is one of the hardest working players that I've had the honor of coaching," Walnut High School head coach Joe Khouzman said. "He has an innate feel for the game that very few players have. Dwight's a classic example of hard work paying off."

    As a junior in 2015, Ramos was named to the All-CIF-Southern Section 2015-16 Boys Basketball Division 1A Second Team, and helped the Mustangs to the Hacienda League championship. In addition, Ramos was a two-time all-area selection. He averaged 20.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game as a junior.

    Michael Wang| 6’7" Forward | Class of 2018 | Mater Dei, Santa Ana, California
    NCAA D1 offers: Texas A&M, San Jose State

    But on the court was Mater Dei's latest promising newcomer, 6-foot-7 1/2 Michael Wang (pronounced Wong). McKnight said Wang is originally from China, is 13 years old and has lots of potential. Wang likes to shoot from outside. - LA Times

    Michael Wang (dynamic passer) - Joel Francisco, ESPN





    Kobey Lam (Ketavong)| 6’1" Guard| Class of 2018 | St. Michael's, Toronto, ON, Canada
    • Youngest player on an OFSAA championship roster
    • Future All-Canadian (U-16), 3 point shoot-out (2nd place)






    "Dodo" Dai Hao (China) | Guard | Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain.
    “We hope that Dai Hao has an important role because, in addition to this talent, he has many different skills that are going to help our team not only because he scores but also because he can dish balls to his teammates thanks to his court vision”, Brisson explains and adds: “It can be noticed that he is in an Academy because those practice hours everyday makes him be at the level of the older players than him”.

    On the other hand, Canarian coach is surprised by “his commitment to be a part of the group, something that has been seen in the previous two calls before this Championship, though the language handicap”. - Rafael Briss, U14 Canarian Coach

    "He also has lead this selection in Huelva: “Dodo began highlighting since the initiation of the championship (38 efficiency points in his first match), due to this, the rest of the teams we have played with have defended him really hard. However, as at the semifinal like in the fight for the bronze, he became the team guide, getting all the responsibility and pulling from the team when the matches were more difficult. In the last game, not only he drove us to the extra-time, he also was decisive at the last minutes” - U14 coach, Samuel Sosa.

    Bertram Mak| 6’6" Forward/Center| Class of 2015| Mark Keppel High School, Alhambra, CA
    • Cal Poly Pomona, Pomona, CA (NCAA Division II)

    Skilled wing with good handle, good passer, high IQ, good shooter off the dribble, nice touch around the rim, shoots the 3, runs the floor, plays hard. - Hoop Review
    He has all the tools. He can dribble, pass, post and shoot. That’s why whatever college gets him, his ceiling will be very high. That’s why some of the college scouts who come out and watch him are amazed. He does everything.” - Hung Duong, Mark Keppel Coach

    Johnny Juzang
    6'6"
    Class of 2020 - Top 25 ESPN Rank

    College offers: Alabama, Arizona State University (ASU), University of Southern California (USC)

    Juzang is a long, quick athlete who continues to grow physically. Juzang has length with a fluid jump shot to compliment a solid skill set for his age. What quickly stands out with this prospect is his ability to get into the rim, shoot with length. Strong wing prospect to watch for the next upcoming years. ~ 2015 West Coast Elite Jr. Camp

    Scouting report on Kobe Paras at the Adidas Nations:



    http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Kobe-Paras-85175/

    adidas Nations Scouting Reports: Wing Prospects
    August 11, 2015
    Mike Schmitz

    Strengths:
    -Excellent physical profile. 6' 7” with a strong frame (upper and lower body) and long arms.
    -Bouncy athlete. Good first step. Can play above the rim with ease.
    -Very good shooter, especially when he's able to step into it. Shows potential as a shooter off the bounce. Footwork isn't great but he's able to create space off the bounce. Uses step backs. Throws ball in basket
    -Shot 27/73 (37%) for 3 and 55/71 (71%) from the free throw line this summer in 21 adidas event games.
    -Can straight line drive. Comfortable with the ball in his hands.
    -Has the tools to be very good defensively.
    -Has plenty of upside to continue to develop into a versatile all-around player

    Weaknesses:
    -Average passer who has room to improve on his feel for the game. Almost always looking to score. Loves to isolate and force up off balance jumpers. Tunnel vision while he's on the move. Throws up wild layups.
    -Average finisher around the basket. Lacks a degree of toughness and physicality.
    -Shot just 47% for 2 this summer in 21 adidas event games.
    -Has some edge to him but not always in a positive way. Talks a lot of trash.
    -Comfortable, but not an advanced ball handler.
    -Needs to improve his footwork off the bounce. Every pull up is into a jump stop rather than a 1-2.
    -Jump shot can be a little streaky. Flings the ball at the rim from time to time.
    -Not always engaged defensively. Can do a better job bending his knees and sitting down in a stance.

    Outlook:
    Paras, who came to the US two years ago, is the son of Benjie Paras, a famous basketball player, TV actor and movie star in the Philippines. He has the physical profile, athleticism and shooting ability of a high-major wing, and potentially a NBA prospect. He can score at all three levels, finish above the rim and has the tools to be a very good defender. The UCLA commit, however, has a long way to go in terms of playing the game the right way and fitting into a team scheme. He does a lot of things that may earn him a very short leash very quickly under head coach Steve Alford. With that said, if Paras is willing to put in the work and can find a way to think the game at a higher level and become more of a team player, he has a chance to be a high-level player in the Pac-12 and set himself up for a successful future beyond the college ranks., possibly in the NBA depending on how his skill-set evolves

    Lee is a young point guard who stays active on both sides of the ball. He has a tight handle and plays very good off-ball defense, preventing his man from receiving the ball in dangerous positions. Lee is also very vocal from the point, and is looked to as a leader on the floor. ~ Edgar Walker (DMVElite News)

    Christian David was named MVP at the Sun Youth Holiday Classic tournament in Canada .

    2017 ESPN Top 100 (#82) - Basketball Recruiting

    http://espn.go.com/college-sports/ba...hristian-david










    http://northpolehoops.com/2015/12/21.../#.VnjYGxUrLIU

    Christian David Could Dominate Prep Scene in America
    Christian David is looking like a stud. The level of aggression in his game has improved drastically. Vermont really brought out the beast in that kid. As previously mentioned from the trip to Connecticut, Bruce Brown is credited for the fire that David has been playing with as of late.

    The Canadian 2017 combo guard is starting to embrace his role as a lead contributor and go to scorer. With one more year left on the prep scene, it is really intriguing to see how he continues to develop mentally, because from a skill standpoint there is no worry.

    With his skill set, he could play up to 4 positions effectively. He can handle the ball with control and speed. He has a knack for rebounding, and has a good feel around the basket. His vision in transition, and in the half court set, are on point. Christian’s shot is a smooth thing, throughout this tournament his three ball fell like water. David was the leading scorer at halftime, finishing with 26 points.

    Christian David is learning the art of domination. With seniors moving on to the NCAA level, he has an opportunity to embrace a role as a leader at Vermont Academy

    http://www.hoopseen.com/index.php/ne...three-programs

    Every spring, there are a few prospects that jump onto the page as priority-level, high-major guys heading into their senior summer. Christian David, a 6-foot-6 wing out of Vermont Academy, may have already gotten a start on that breakout campaign. It was his time at the Hoop Hall Classic over the weekend that enabled for the Canadian prospect to display his vast upside and ball skills on the perimeter.

    Suiting up alongside Bruce Brown, one of the toughest and hard-nosed prospects in all of high school ball, David has been able to come along slowly in developing his mean streak and go-to mentality in the backcourt. Still though, the first year transfer into the prep program has allowed for David to develop his entire package of abilities and a game that could make him one of the most thoroughly recruited prospects within his 2017 recruiting class.

    By way of his quality outside jumper, the 6-foot-6 junior can be quickly labeled a specialist on the perimeter. However, David is more than just a shooter of the ball as he can facilitate within the half-court setting, can drive and distribute with his off-hand, and is deceptively athletic at the basket. Throw in his versatility that touches both sides of the playing floor and David has everything that you might want in a top of the line prospect.

    Walking away with his newest offers out of Seton Hall and Virginia Tech due to his play over the weekend, David originally listed 10 offers ranging from the mid to high-major level. It is three of those programs that have put in the most work with him. “George Washington, Creighton, and Providence are recruiting me the hardest right now,” the Canadian stated. “They really want me. They are just telling me that I'm their top recruit and fit into program really well.”


    Planning to take some visits in the spring, the Vermont Academy junior does have a good feel for what he is looking for in a future college home. “I like teams that spread the floor, drive and kick, and like shooting the 3,” David told HoopSeen.

    With others such as Virginia and Michigan are showing further interest, expect for the fluid recruitment of Christian David to hit full steam ahead this spring as he suits up for the talented CIA Bounce bunch.

    http://www.nvdaily.com/sports/2015/0...ct-for-flames/

    Brad Foster didn’t expect much when he first heard that twins Eric and Michael Truong wanted to play for the Front Royal Flames last year. Once the Front Royal Flames boys basketball coach saw them on the court, though, his opinion quickly changed.
    “The first day I saw them and I saw two little scrawny Asian twins, and their dad was saying they’re good point guards, and so I didn’t think much of it when I saw them,” Foster said. “But the minute they hit the basketball court they electrified the whole place.”

    Eric and Michael Truong, who live in Winchester, tried out for the Flames, a homeschool team, midway through last year. This season, as freshman, they are making a much bigger impact on the team. Eric Truong is averaging 22.1 points per game, while Michael Truong is averaging 17.3 per game.
    Foster said that the pair has helped his program, which usually struggles.

    “Usually we’re in the bottom tier of the talent level, but with the twins this year they’ve brought us into the middle of the pack,” Foster said. “With them still being young, we’ve got a bright future for the team.”

    The Truong twins began playing basketball just four years ago, and have progressed quickly. They immediately had great ball-handling skills, which caught the eye of many that watched them play.

    “Most people they start off with fundamentals, but we started off backwards,” Eric Truong said. “We started out like street ball first.”
    Michael Truong added, “Most people start out with fundamentals and then once they get that down they get the fancy stuff.
    “A lot of people said we started out with the fancy stuff and with the talent with that, and then we developed the fundamentals.”
    Michael Truong is the Flames’ point guard, while his brother is the shooting guard. The pair practice year-round and also play Amateur Athletic Union basketball in Loudoun County and are coached by Eric Williams.

    The pair said playing AAU has helped their games a lot over the last few years.
    “It’s different, you get to travel around,” Eric Truong said of AAU. “It’s a lot more fast-paced.”
    The pair also practice for a few hours every day at Body Renew Fitness in Winchester. They said the fact that they have each other has helped them get better at the game quicker.
    “It helps with your practice, because normally people go out there and shoot by themselves and go rebound the ball themselves,” Michael Truong said. “But we play one-on-one, and it’s more efficient.”
    Two years ago the Truong twins played for Millbrook’s JV squad, but last year the family decided to pull them out of public schools and homeschool them.
    Their father, James, said their grades are very important to them, and they must make good grades to play.
    “We’re very proud of them, and they do well in school. That’s one thing we do emphasize to them,” James Truong said. “My wife she says they cannot play unless they get a 4.0 in school. That’s the bottom line. She will not take anything less than that. They are aware and they know that.”
    The twins said they also spend a lot of time doing things like cardio and working out to be complete players. They both said they went to get stronger to become even better players.
    It’s certainly working out for them so far this season. Eric Truong leads the team with 1.5 steals per game, and is also shooting 59.6 percent (187-for-314) from the floor. He is also shooting 50.4 percent (66-for-131) from 3-point range. Eric Truong said he had eight 3-pointers in one game, and scored 40 points in a game against Central Virginia Homeschool earlier this season.
    Michael Truong is averaging 2.3 assists per game and 1.2 steals. He is shooting 56.3 percent (139-for-247) from the floor. He is also shooting 36-for-79 from 3-point range (52.2 percent), and is shooting a team-best 81.6 percent from the free-throw line.
    The pair also know each other so well, which helps them out on the court to be even more successful.
    “We know how to read each other’s minds,” Michael Truong said. “I know if he’s going to back door cut, or what he’s going to do. I know if he’s going to rebound or he’s going to shoot. We have a twin telepathy.”
    The pair said they also push each other to make each other better in every facet of the game.
    Foster said the other players on the team have accepted them and are happy to play with them.
    “The chemistry on the team has just been tremendous this year,” Foster said. “There’s no inner conflicts or personality conflicts or anything on the team at all.”
    The Flames are 14-11 and have their biggest games of the season still to come. The Flames will be in the Virginia Homeschool boys basketball tournament on Feb. 27-28 in Roanoke, and in the East Coast Homeschool Basketball Championships on March 10-14 at Liberty University. The East Coast tournament is run by Front Royal resident and Flames girls basketball coach Chris Davis.
    Defense has been one of the biggest problems for the Flames this season, but they still have some time to improve in that area.
    “We just have to stop [the] other team from scoring more than we do as a team,” Michael Truong said. “We’re still improving, so it’s all good. By the time we get to the East Coast tournament, which we have each year, I think we should be fine.”

    There’s no question that Eric and Michael Truong should be fine as they continue to improve their games. They said they have already received interest from colleges, including Liberty University.


    Foster said they have scouts come watch their games, and he gets emails regularly from other players who are interested in joining the team and playing with the twins.

    “Even though they’re young, people are already taking notice,” Foster said. “If their bodies mature physically, they have a very, very good opportunity to play college basketball.

    “They have a very bright future in basketball and they work hard at it.”
