Jamal Shead has Power 5 Schools interested, Cobe Williams is a product of Erven “Big E” Davis “Guard Factory” and more notes from the top stock risers from July.

Delore Johnson, 2019 SG – Texas Pro: Johnson was influential in Texas Pro’s win vs Urban DFW at the Center Court in Vegas. Delore got to the rack and hit key jumpers down the stretch. The Cy Ranch guard showcased a part of his game that translates to the next level as he received an offer from Longwood and recently received an offer from Sam Houston State as well.

Tre Jones, 2019 SF/PF – Dallas Showtyme: Jones was on a tear in July as the high energy, athletic forward produced against a multitude of division one front-line prospects. Jones was influential in Showtyme’s wins against Houston Hoops and Drive Nation. Tre received offers from UT Arlington and Texas Southern in July.

Cobe Williams, 2019 PG – Dallas Showtyme: The speedy guard for Showtyme played with a chip on the shoulder as he sliced and diced his way to the paint, put pressure on the defense and he connected on jumpers from beyond the arc. Williams performances garnered offers from Texas Southern, Southern, UT Arlington,  UT  Permian Basin & Northern Colorado.

LJ Cryer, 2020 PG – Basketball University: Cryer has been receiving offers from high end D1 programs but his play in July rose his stock to the TBB staff.
