8th Annual San Diego High School Showcase hosted by Gamepoint Basketball
September 29th - 30th - Corky Smith Gym - San Marcos, Ca
The San Diego High School Showcase has established itself over the past eight years as the region’s top preseason showcase, giving fans, scouts and writers a fairly accurate barometer of the upcoming high school season.
This year ups the ante, with the inclusion of some high-powered teams - and prospects - from across Southern California.
Headlined by Rancho Christian of Temecula - a presumptive top-5 team in the state - the showcase also includes LA City Section powerhouse Fairfax, Orange County power Santa Margarita, prep school force Balboa, Orange County top team Villa Park, as well as local stalwarts Torrey Pines and Foothills Christian.
Locals will get to see at least two presumptive McDonalds All Americans - 2019 Rancho Christian F Isaiah Mobley and his brother, 2020 F Evan Mobley - on Saturday. The younger Mobley is considered to be one of the top two prospects in his class and a potential top NBA draft pick.
The event also features several prospects headed to High major programs: In addition to Isaiah Mobley, USC fans will get a preview of followed prized recruit Max Agbonkpolo, a 6-8 swingman from Santa Margarita. Agbonkpolo’s 6-7 teammate Jake Kyman is headed to UCLA. And Villa Park G Julien Franklin is also Pac-12 bound, headed to Oregon State. San Diego State fans will get to see a player that will prove to be a formidable future antagonist - Fairfax’s Ethan Anderson, who is headed to rival UNLV.
And locally, fans will get to see three of the region’s four D1 signees - Princeton-bound Ryan Langborg (La Jolla Country Day), Montana-bound Derrick Carter-Hollinger (Foothills Christian) and UCSD-bound Bryce Pope (Torrey Pines).
The event kicks off at 9 am at San Marcos Gymnasium - aka Corky Smith Gym - 274 Pico Avenue. Admission is $10
