Dragons At A Glance

MAXPREPS RANKING (independents): No. 1

It was a “statement” season for the fast-rising prep powerhouse, as AZ Compass gave No. 1 Montverde two scares and is substantially more talented despite losing the bulk of its production. Program director Pete Kaffey and head coach Ed Gipson return three building blocks in 6-10 SR Sadraque Nganga, 7-0 SR Adrame Diongue (6 ppg, 7 rpg) and Rice commit 6-5 SR Mekhi Mason (8 ppg, 2 apg), but the Dragons received two special additions when Portland Jefferson teammates 6-5 JR Mookie Cook (18.5 ppg, 10.7 rpg, 3.8 apg, 2.2 blocks) and 6-4 JR Lamar Washington (30.1 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 4.8 apg, 1.7 steals) departed for The Valley after winning an Oregon state title in the spring. Next came transfer 6-1 JR Kylan Boswell (15.5 ppg at Corona Centennial CA), who scored 21 points in his team’s Southern Section title-game win over Sierra Canyon with LeBron James and Drake in front-row seats, and a late-October surprise in Auburn-bound 6-6 SR Chance Westry (23.8 ppg, 5.3 rpg as a sophomore at Camp Hill Trinity PA in 2019-20), who scored 40 points in Pennsylvania’s Class 3A state-title game as a freshman in 2019. … Three other high-major recruits – 6-8 SR Vanderbilt pledge Colin Smith (21 ppg, 9 rpg, 6.5 apg, 3 steals, 2 blocks at Dallas St. Mark’s TX), UCLA commit 6-3 SR Dylan Andrews (Windward CA) and San Jose State-bound 6-8 SR Max Allen (Sierra Canyon CA) – will play significant roles, with Smith emerging as a go-to scorer. Andrews was top-5 in scoring (13.8), assists (3.3), steals (1.5) and 3-point shooting (.429) at the prestigious NBPA Top 100 Camp.
