By Marcus Helton & Edgar Walker, 09/24/15, 12:00AM EDT


UPPER MARLBORO, MD - The 3rd annual DMVelite 80 attracted 94 of the area’s best players to Wise High School in Upper Marlboro, Md. on September 5, giving them an opportunity to get some high-level work in in front of media and college coaches.

The 2018 Class was arguably the story of the event, with many players turning in big performances. Several members of the group already boast high-major Division I offers, and its shaping up to be one of the DMV’s deepest classes in years.

Here’s a look at the 2018 standouts:

Brayden Gault, Battlefield (Va.) Guard
The 6-3 Gault (PICTURED, TOP) is one of the better-kept secrets in the area, and quietly put together a great day, leading all players in scoring at 15 points per game. He displayed non-stop hustle and scored a lot of points simply by being a step ahead of everyone else on the floor. He’ll be more of a focal point offensively for the Bobcats this upcoming season. (EW)

Noah Locke, McDonogh (Md.) Guard

Locke impressed media and scouts in attendance, as well as fans and local coaches. He’s a natural, smooth scorer whose jumper is his calling card, and it was on display as he finished with a team-high 11.3 points per game. He carried momentum from a strong summer into the DMVelite 80, and is in the discussion as one of the top players in the Baltimore area, regardless of class. He came into the event with an offer from UNC-Greensboro, and has since picked up offers from Cincinnati and Southern California. (EW)

Myles Dread, Gonzaga
Dread (PICTURED, MIDDLE) impressed with his versatility, and displays a savvy uncommon for such a young player. He was active and involved from the very beginning, reaching out to the coaches during the drill portion to ask for tips. Once the games started, he was fantastic, averaging 9 points and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 16-of-26 from the field and 3-of-5 from 3-point range. He dished out a team-high 10 assists while committing just two turnovers and collected three steals. (MH)

Immanuel Quickley, John Carroll (Md.) Guard
Quickley came in as one of the area’s most highly-recruited 2018 guards, and he lived up to his billing. He’s a big guard at 6-3, but is quick, smooth and see the floor extremely well. He averaged 4.7 points and 2 rebounds per game, and currently lists offers from Cincinnati, Rhode Island, Southern California, UMBC and Washington. (MH)

Derquan Washington, HD Woodson (D.C.) Guard
A late addition to a loaded DMVelite 80 guard field, Washington came in with a chip on his shoulder. He dropped a game-high 14 points in his team’s opening victory, going 4-of-5 from 3-point range. He earned DMVelite D.C. Freshman of the Year honors while at Dunbar, and will now look to help HD claim a second DCIAA championship. (MH)

Kiyon Boyd, HD Woodson (D.C.) Wing
Another relatively unheralded D.C. talent, Boyd showed good range and has a great frame. He averaged 7 points per game and connected on 4-of-7 from 3-point range. Overall, Boyd was one of the main breakout names from the event and asserted himself as a D1 prospect. Look for the offers to roll in for Boyd over the next 18 months; he’s already picked up one from Towson since the event. (EW)

Bryce Golden, St. James (Md.) Forward
Golden began ascending last year after getting pressed into service early following an early-season injury to his brother, 2016 Richmond commit Grant Golden. His momentum hasn’t slowed, and he’s emerged as a top prospect in his own right, with five mid-major scholarship offers. He averaged 10.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game at the DMVelite 80, showing good strength and activity on both ends of the floor. (MH)

Koran Moore, St. Frances (Md.)
The 6-8 Moore is reclassifying from 2017 to 2018 following his transfer from Patterson. He currently holds an offer from Southern California, and the extra year should further boost his stock. He’s revamped his body significantly over the past year, and ran the floor extremely well. Moore averaged 7.3 points per game on very efficient 10-of-14 shooting from the field and also pulled down 4.7 rebounds per game. (MH)

Ed Ferguson, St. Frances (Md.) Guard
Ferguson (PICTURED, BOTTOM) put together a very efficient day offensively, averaging 7 points per game on 9-of-12 shooting from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3-point land. He had a team-high 12 points on 5-5 shooting (2-2 on 3’s) in a 1-point loss to Team 3. Ferguson sat out last year while reclassifying to 2018, but should be a nice addition to an already solid St. Frances backcourt. (MH)

Jared Bynum, Georgetown Prep (Md.) Guard
Bynum is a capable scorer, but took the opportunity to put his passing talents on display, dishing out 7 assists to just two turnovers. He’s a lightning-quick lead guard who changes direction with the ball in an instant and keeps defenders off guard. (MH)

Jermain Harris, Clinton Christian (Md.)
If Harris plays this season at Clinton Christian with the energy he brought into the DMVelite 80, he’ll have a breakout year. He’s a raw and athletic 6-7 forward who was seemingly all over the gym at Wise, averaging 6.6 points (on 8-of-13 shooting) and 4 rebounds per game, and factoring in on the defensive end throughout the event. (MH)


D’Marco Baucum, Bishop O’Connell (Va.) Forward
Isaiah Mucius, St. James (Md.) Wing
LJ Owens, Severn School (Md.) Guard
Nate Roberts, John Carroll (Md.) Forward
Brandon Slater, Paul VI (Va.) Wing
Tre Wood, St. John’s (D.C.) Guard
