MLK Hoopfest Preview


Left Coast Recruiting will be on hand for the Martin Luther King Hoopfest that will be held at the University of Washington. We have been at many Washington High School basketball games this year but this one day will feature many of the top teams in the state and two teams from out of state. And with that comes much of the top talent.

The teams:


  • 2012 Isaac Barsh – A wing who is dangerous on the baseline.  Not only can Barsh score but he can rebound as well.
  • 2013 Tre’Shaun Lexing – Lexing is an intriguing wing who can do pretty much a bit of everything.  He can rebound, pass, and score.  Lexing is at his best with the ball in his hands.

Lake Washington

  • 2012 Darien Nelson-Henry- A big center that is known for dominating the paint. He is already committed to Penn.
  • 2012 Matt Staudacher- A guard that is known for his ability to shoot. He can light up a scoreboard.


  • 2013 Zach Lavine – Lavine is one of the best players in the state.  The sharp shooting Bothell guard can easily get 30 on any given night. Lavine holds offers from almost every Pac-12 school.


  • 2012 Sekou Wiggs – A hard working guard who has a nice mid-range game.  Wiggs works hard on offense and defense.  Wiggs is getting mid-major interest.

Long Beach Poly (CA)

  • 2013 Jordan Bell – A forward who is nationally known.  Bell is a handful on defense and offense.  Washington has offered the talented big man.


  • 2012 Arell Hennings- A talented point guard, that shows that he has what it takes to compete at the D1 level. He can be a fun recruit to watch, this will be the first time that LCR has seen him this season.

Rainier Beach

  • 2012 Anrio Adams- The best player in the state, committed to Kansas, and can simply take over a game.
  • 2013 Will Dorsey- A fantastic point guard that is recruited by many of the top colleges on the west coast. He finds ways to make his team better.


  • 2012 Zach Banner- Mainly known for being one of the top lineman in the country, but is also a very physical big man down low. He plans to play football and basketball at his choice of university.
  • 2013 Jordan Johnson- A wing who can rebound and score.  Johnson has the potential to be something special if he can put it all together.


  • 2013 Tucker Haymond – A shooting guard who has emerged for Garfield.  Haymond has been putting up huge numbers all year.

Seattle Prep

  • 2012 Mitch Brewe- An undersized (6’7) center that is headed to UCSB, he is very productive in rebounds and finds ways to get fouled and make his free-throws.
  • 2013 D.J. Fenner – A strong forward who can create his own shot on the court.  Fenner is getting recruited as a combo guard from colleges in the Pac-12 and across the nation.
  • 2014 Josh Martin – A 6’7 forward who is very active on the court.  Martin holds an offer from The University of Washington and has interest from many of the Pac-12 schools.

Federal Way

  • 2014 DeeShawn Tucker- One of the best point guards in the state at such a young age, can explode to the rim, excellent defense, and is the coach on the floor. He is hearing from almost every team in the Pac-12.
  • 2014 Deonte Anderson- 6’5 forward that plays strong and athletic. He has tons of potential.
  • 2014 Brayon Blake- A young big man for the Eagles, transferred from Cleveland High School and shows enormous upside.
