#1 BAYAK TUTLUM

Guard  | 6-3 | Junior 2013

Key stats: 16 ppg.

Bayek is a pure shooter with a deep range. Shooters are at a premium and with his high release and athleticism, Bayek’s ceiling is very high. Bayek’s efforts honored him a Wesco South Boys: First Team selection this season for Mariner High School. His continued work on his strength will help to prepare him for the next level. Bayek takes his studies very seriously and is going to make his family very proud in all that he does.

 #3 ISIAH BROWN

Guard  | 6-0 | 8th grade 2016

Few Isiah’s age would have the ability or maturity to accomplish playing a significant role on an elite U17 team.  His playing is mesmerizing, and those who don’t know him would never realize he is so young by his talents. The son of a former coach, Isiah’s a real student of the game and excellent in school.  He is as a young man with a very bright future.

 

 

 

 

#5 DREW STANG

Forward | 6-7 | Sophomore 2014

Drew has been not only a surprise for Stanwood High School this season, but also for our program.  He has an uncanny ability to block shots and shoot the 3pt shot. Drew is still growing with an excellent feel for the game; once he starts to grow into his body and put forth the strength work, he could be a sleeper in the class of 2014 with a 4.0gpa.

 

 

 

 

#11 DEVIN STOEN

Point Guard | 6-4 | Junior 2013 Key stats: 12 ppg, 6.0 Ast.

As a tall point guard with a pass-first attitude, Devin is a wonderful facilitator for our team and Lake Stevens High School. Devin’s gym-rat mentality to always have a ball in his hand is why he has the ability to handle the ball like he does. A late bloomer, Devin grew two inches since his sophomore year and as a junior received All-Wesco North: Second Team honors. Devin’s hard work and passion for the game makes him a joy to coach.

 

 

 

#12 BLAKE FERNANDEZ

Guard  | 6-1 | Junior 2013 Key stats: 12 ppg.

Blake is the point guard for Mountlake Terrace High School which qualified for the state tournament this past season.  Blake was honored with a Wesco South Boys: Second Team selection this season. As a relentless opponent, he brings his competitive edge every game with his shooting touch and a determined desire to defend and take the big charge. Additionally, Blake’s 4.0 GPA show him to be an excellent student-athlete.

 

 

 

#13 TERRY DAWN

Guard | 6-4 | Junior 2013 Key stats: 21.5 ppg, 6.0 rpg.

This year Terry Dawn took his game to another level for Arlington High School. Terry led his team in several statistical categories and became an All-Wesco North: First Team selection. Terry has the ability to play multiple positions and tends to score in bunches: after 59 points in two wins over Mariner and Kamiak, Terry was selected as the WIAA Athlete of the Week in early January 2012. Additionally, Terry is an all-League football player who plays both sides of the field and is one of the top receivers in the state.

 

 

#20 YONATHAN MICHAEL

Forward | 6-5 | Sophomore 2014

Yonathan was a reserve player for Shorewood High School this year and is a very versatile player with an excellent all-around game. Yoni is working on his body conditioning and, with a continued focus on his development, will excel both on and off the court.

 

 

 

 

#24 JOSH HAWKINSON

Forward/Center | 6-9 | Junior 2013 Key stats: 17 ppg.

It’s easy to forget about the players from bordering schools just north of Seattle. Shoreline’s Shorewood High School and Hoopaholics are both looking for big things from their center “Big Josh”. Already known in Wesco as the Man-in-the-Middle, many are surprised by his soft hands and ability to step outside and hit 3′s. Still growing at 6’9”, with size 18 sneaks, this off-season finds him developing his all-around game and athleticism. He has signed to play with Washington State University! 

See below Joel Francisco – ESPN write up.

 

 

#34 JULIJS PRUZINSKIS

Guard  | 6-5 | Junior 2013 Key stats: 13 ppg, 6 ast, 7 reb

Julijs is a coach’s dream: willing to give his body up and do all the little things. His length (at 6’5”) and ability to slash to the basket keeps him always in the mix on both ends of the floor. If not for a hand injury this season, Julijs would have easily been in contention for All-Metro honors and 18+ ppg. Julijs plays one way—all out—with a motor that pushes him on every play.  His ability to play positions 1 through 4 adds to the success of our team.

 

 

 

#42 HENRY OLSON 

Forward | 6-8 | Junior 2013

While with Hoopaholics, Henry has made real strides to improve his athleticism and offensive game; he is extremely coachable and willing to make the extra effort in whatever his role. He has excellent defense and can rebound; this, added to his great attitude and character, makes it hard to keep him off the court. Henry is another one of our excellent students, with a near 4.0 GPA.

 

 

 

 

#50 TRAVIS BAKKEN

Forward | 6-7 | Sophomore 2014 Key stats: 12 ppg, 7.0 rpg.

Travis is one of our young players and is still learning how to use to his power to his advantage. This year for Edmonds-Woodway High School he had several big games. If he continues to improve on his athleticism and skill-set, there is no telling the kind of season he will have. Travis was honored with an Wesco South Boys: First Team selection this season and will be a force with which to reckon next year, both on the football field and basketball court.

Pangos Sweet 16 recap 

By Joel Francisco | ESPN.com

LONG BEACH, Calif. — With the April evaluation period coming to an end, it was time to make a pit stop at the Pangos Sweet 16. Many of the elite prospects from the West Coast were scattered at various tournaments around the country, but the Pangos event gave us a chance to watch some up-and-comers as well as some intriguing Division I sleepers.

Surprise players

Bayek Tutlam (Everett, Wash./Mariner) 

2013, WF, 6-3, 160 pounds

Tutlam is a wiry wing-type with an outstanding shooting touch that extends out to 20 feet. He gets off his shot fairly quick and his release is smooth. His shot is more consistent off the catch (gets his feet set well), but he needs to get better with the ball, while being pressured. He plays the game with a good pace and rarely forces the action. He’ll need to get stronger for the next level, but he is definitely a Division I prospect.

Breakthrough performers

Josh Hawkinson (Shoreline, Wash./Shorewood) 

2013, PF/C, 6-9, 235 pounds

Hawkinson runs with the Hoopaholics out of Washington, and after taking in their act at the Pangos, they’re quite addictive to watch because of the unselfishness they display on the offensive end — and it starts with Hawkinson. He is a long-armed post prospect who possesses an excellent feel for the game. While on the block, he can turn over his left shoulder and convert or drop off a nifty assist if the help comes. He handed out a number of fine cross-court passes and found teammates from the high post. He is a rim-level player, but he seals well in the post, has good feet and excellent hands. Schools in the Big Sky, WCC and Big West should be on his radar.
