CORINTH, Miss. – The Lighthouse Classic is quickly becoming one of the southeast’s premier events after Thanksgiving. This year’s edition was no different as some of the nation’s top prospects laced their sneakers up to shine at Corinth High School. Here’s our take on four of the top seniors in attendance:

Donte Dorsey-Fitzpatrick (Memphis, Tenn.) – Southwind HS – 2015


The future Ole Miss Rebel literally willed his team to victory taking and more importantly, making several big shots down the stretch of the game as they defeated a Quinndary Weatherspoon led Velma Jackson team. Much like his play for Team Penny on the Nike EYBL circuit, Dorsey-Fitzpatrick was a domestic helpers essay legitimate four-star option on the wing capable of making a shot when his number was called upon. The 6-foot-4 guard is a good athlete with range on his jump shot to match.

Gerron Scissum (Huntsville, Ala.) – Lee HS – 2015


This was the second straight Saturday that we had seen Scissum play. Much like the eval last week at the Jared Cook Classic, the 6-8 unsigned senior was effective around the rim with his athleticism and energy. Scissum’s willingness to play hard all of the time separates him from some of the other available power forward prospects that we’ve seen to date. A three-star prep, Scissum holds offers from Chattanooga, Florida Atlantic, Mercer and Tennessee Tech amongst others.

Dimencio Vaughn – (Jackson, Miss.) – Callaway HS – 2015


After transferring in from Thurgood essay on my favourite leader mahatma gandhi Marshall HS in New York, Vaughn is making his presence felt on a high level Callaway team led by the nation’s No. 1 senior guard Malik Newman. Vaughn is a powerful wing who is a perfect complement to Newman’s style. In this setting, Vaughn showed the touch on his jump shot to keep defenders honest while also getting to the rim to finish as well. At 6-5, he’s got the size to play and defend multiple positions at the collegiate level.

Lamont West – (Lithonia, Ga.) – Miller Grove HS – 2015


West was the only player in group who we did not get to see on the summer event circuit. The 6-8 post player has seen his stock rise since Miller Grove’s season got started and for good reason. As we’ve come to expect from Sharman White essay on my grandfather in marathi coached post prospects, West ran the floor, finished at the basket and protected the rim on the defensive end of the hardwood. We’ll keep an eye on his recruitment as he is a name that schools needing a post late should flock to see immediately.
