AJ Bramah - 6'7" SF out of Sheridan College (JUCO) and San Leandro High School (CA) where he averaged 13 ppg and 8 rpg as a senior. He is a very athletic wing who likes to play above the rim. Has a good view of the court and is a good passer. Likes to sneak behind the defender for the Alley-oop and spectacular dunks. Excellent in transition. Has a nice touch from the outside, can hit the 3 and uses his body effectively to create space and while absorbing contact in the paint. At Sheridan, he averaged 12 ppg, 10.1 rpg and 3.2 apg while shooting 35.3% from the three. We are his first offer.
Nicholas Evtimov - 6'8" PF out of Lewisville, N.C. - Rated 3 stars by ESPN. This kid has a great hoops IQ and as great fundamental skills. He has good hands and very good footwork in the paint. He is very good at creating space and uses fakes very effectively to get his shot off. He is also a good team player and likes to draw the defense to him and kicks the ball out to the open wings. He has a ton of upside and if he keeps working hard he will be a monster by the time he is a college junior. He can stretch the =defense with his outside shot but is a tough inside presence. Offers from Colgate, Bucknell, Appalachian State, and Iona. interest from Cambell, Richmond, Iowa, and Wofford. I expect his stock to rise this summer while playing AAU.
He comes from good bloodlines...
His father is Vassil Evtimov, a 6'10" French/Bulgarian hoops star, a 1996 McDonald's All American at Long Island Lutheran and UNC player, He was known as the Bulgarian Bull. A tough inside player and rebounder. Had a long career in the French, Italians and Greek pro leagues. His Uncle is Ilian Evtimov, a 6'7" SF/PF French/Bulgarian hoops star who had a great career at NC State and played in the French and Italian Pro leagues.
Re Nick Evtimov, TC actually coached his uncle Ilian in high school at St. Mary's. Ilian only stayed one year, I think he was a freshman playing on the varsity before moving to NC then going to State. Greensboro Day is a powerhouse program, Nick was more complimentary player to a Clemson commit this year but will be a focal point next year.
According to Goodman, Iona's in the mix for McNeese State transfer Kalob Ladeaux. 6-3 soph guard averaged 16 and 4. Was hearing from plenty of big schools (eg, UConn, Gonzaga) last month but the list has cooled but still has Va Tech, La Tech, and Northern Kentucky. He had declared for the NBA draft a little ways back too. Would be eligible in 2019.
