The talented 12 Deep WI program has two teams that are set to take part in the Prep Hoops Next National Championship in Kansas City during July 1st-3rd weekend are eager to make a name for themselves against some of the nations best. The 12 Deep WI program director Arsenio Hall was able to speak to us about what we should expect when we see them in July and how they fared earlier in the year on the Prep Hoops Next Circuit…
“It was a great experience this year as always. Every year we have been on the Prep Hoops Circuit it has been awesome. My teams have always done well in the events and I am always looking forward to the next event. We are really looking forward to the Middle School National Championship.”
Expectations are high for Coach Hall and he expects to perform at a high level at the National Championship.
“I expect us to do well. My 2027 group has been playing up all year so this will be one of the first tournaments they are playing in their own age bracket. My 2028 group is a group I am working on but I expect them to have some good moments in Kansas City. Taylor Williamson is the real deal and will be the go to guy on our 2028 team.”
Hall broke down Taylor Williamson’s game and two other players from his program that people will be hearing about sooner rather than later.
2028 Taylor Williamson: “He is a point guard and I think he is one of the better guards in the class. He is a kid that plays up a lot and has been a standout in multiple Prep Hoops Next events. He has been written up a lot on Prep Hoops Next. To be honest with you, he reminds me a lot of Allen Iverson.”
2027 Daijohn Hughes: “He is another 2027 prospect that is just a complete athlete. He is just starting to grow into his body and has grown like two inches since the summer. He just started dunking the basketball, literally out of nowhere. He literally just came to practice one day and jumped up there and dunked the ball. I know he had been trying for weeks and now he is dunking the ball. I think with his development and what we plan to do he is definitely a name that you will hear in the next 3-4 years.”
2027 Jayden Boyd: “He is a point guard and I think he is one of the better point guards in the 2027 class. He is real tough and has been playing up in the 8th grade division all year. He is lightning fast and is jumping really well. He is almost dunking the ball, keeps his dribble tight, he is an elite player, he can make everyone better as he is averaging 8-10 assists.”
All three of those guys are going to be crucial to the success for the 12 Deep WI program but he also knows consistency as a whole will be important.
“Consistency is key with us. That is the most important thing. We have to be consistent and I am very interested to see how Jayden and Daijohn are going to do in their own age group.”
