    First year program Team Thad 17's has amassed a very solid group of young men and started the summer circuit season with an impressive Memphis Classic Tournament championship with solid wins over Dallas Mustangs and Jackson Tigers. Starting the month of April the 17's went an 11-3 with good strong overall play and plenty of room for progress as the season progresses.

Jonathan Starks @ Brighton



     Jonathan Starks (6'1 - 175 lbs. Brighton, rivals #) is definitely the best overall point guard in the state plus the region hands down in the Hoopers eyes  staff. Add his athletic ability where he can also play above the rim, great ball handling skills, outstanding court vision to deliver pinpoint laser passes all over the court. To go along with an very impressive jump shot from the mid range to the long three pointer. In Dallas on April 20, 2012 at the Next Level Tournament he averages a double double with 11 assists per contest plus 14pints respectively. This kid is going to be very special compadres and when his high school career ends he will be considered one of the top guards to play in the area accordingly. Ervin Morris (6'5 - 195 lbs. Memphis East, rivals #  Kent Stat via South Kent Prep) who has reclassified to class 2013 and is one of those players that can do a little bit of everything and especially offensively with his long reach and tall frame he contributes in many ways and you will hear about this kid all summer circuit season long. Aston Morton (6'3 - 185 lbs., rivals # Desoto Central ) at his height is the best rebounder on this squad with a toughness that comes from the heart. He possesses a very nice jump shot from all over the court so he has different dimensions to his game.

    Guard play is very solid with the addition of Payton Hulsey (6'4 - 185 lbs. Southwind, rivals #) who can play the 1 or 2 in strong fashion. Hulsey has the body to play other teams big guards and has an very overall aggressive game. Hulsey's passing and court vision is very solid at the same time. Demetrius Dyson (6'6 - 195 lbs. Melrose, rivals #) will contribute all season accordingly with his overall play. Rhyan Townes (6'4 - 190 lbs., rivals #) whose left hand moves are very solid with an very improved outside shot from long range also. Another teammate is Tim Sanders (6'0 - 165 lbs., Germantown rivals #) who will play at the guard spot and is one of the better outside shooters in the city.  Sanders will make some noise as he did early in the summer circuit season with some very solid shooting against great competition early on.

      Team Thad  has a strong schedule this summer starting with The Memphis Classic April 13-15 whom they captured the championship with wins over Dallas Mustangs twice and Jackson Tigers  impressively. Next on tap is The Nike Next Level in Dallas April 20-23 during the first live period for college coaches to evaluate players extensively and returns after a three year hiatus.  Another marquee tournaments will be the  Real Deal on the Rock in Little Rock April 27-29. AAU Sub State and AAU State will proceed in May with good talent locally and state wide participating. July is no exception with major events all the way across the board with The Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis, Indiana July 11-15 and with the Kentucky Hoopfest in Louisville, Kentucky July 18-22 and Adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas from July 25-29 to end an very strong summer schedule.

      Conner Anderson (6'7 - 210 lbs., Germantown rivals #) and Mike Matlack (6'5 - 200 lbs., Overton rivals # ) round out an very solid overall ball club that has all the pieces for winning national tournaments all summer long. The only thing I see that can give them problems is they lack big man for inside play against teams with strong inside play. Teammates will have to step up and crash the boards with tenacity which will pay off ten fold. When their big guns can't get it done and their will be a time when they cross that bridge everything else has to be in line to compete nationally. Will the supporting cast step up and play within their parameters and make smart decisions and limit their mistakes where that will be crucial department all season long.
