Thought it might be nice to track the senior season’s of the 2015 commits (Holba, Sedore, Leufroy) in one thread. Here is what I have dug up so far:
Holba was named an IndyStar player of the week for the week ending Dec 8. He is currently averaging 22 and 14 for his 3-0 Guerin Catholic team currently ranked #9 in the IndyStar “Fab 15.”
Sedore has gotten off to a 2-0 start with Sedore putting up 17 points/11 boards/3 blocks in the opener and 25/17/5 in game two. Remember he is not playing against tremendous competition, so he will likely put up some really big numbers. Surprised to see that he has already shot 9 threes in two games (making 2).
Prolific Prep is currently 5-2 playing their national schedule already travelling to Kentucky and West Virginia from Northern California. I’m not seeing reliable season stats for Leufroy, but he has put up some pretty impressive statlines. Slam had this recap of his play in the Bluegrass Showcase:
Kyle Leufroy, 6-2, PG/SG, Prolific Prep (CA)
Not a guy who is going to blow you away in any particular facet of the game, Kyle Leufroy came up with some key plays throughout Prolific Prep’s two W’s over the weekend. He was a constant penetrator, always head his head up to find the open man, and made sound decisions with the rock in his hands. Lehigh made it a point to lock up Leufroy early and he will look to follow in CJ McCollum’s foot steps as the school’s next star combo guard.December 10, 2014 at 3:26 am #17129
I wanted to post something similar but time is scarce right now.
Here is something to whet your appetite though.
The consider for a moment that the first tape is from 7th grade and the 2nd is from 8th grade
The third one is from last year.December 10, 2014 at 2:16 pm #17130
Very nice TMH. Matt see,s ready to step in right now.December 14, 2014 at 3:17 pm #17254
StablerBum is absolutely correct that the level of competition must be taken into consideration when assessing Sedore’s #s. So what are the expectations? In game 3, he posted 25/19/2 and in game 4, he put up 29/21/1. Interestingly, I think he may still be growing in that most sources now list him at 6-11. So technically, he may be the only person that will be able to call TK “shorty” next year. Notably, he had 3 more treys in game 3.December 17, 2014 at 11:20 pm #17297
Found another little blurb on Leufroy’s play at the Bluegrass Showcase:
Also at Prolific, senior combo guard Kyle Leufroy can get some things done. At 6-foot-2, he is a capable jump shooter and pretty good decision-maker. How he ended up picking Lehigh has to be one of the bigger questions of the early signing period. That West Coast mid-majors would let him get away makes zero sense.January 7, 2015 at 2:20 am #17542
If you thought Colgate’s Jacobs was good, wait till you see this kid!

Holba had a dunk nominated for the “Shot of the Game” – http://indysportscentral.com/2015/01/24/shot-of-the-game-candidates-for-january-23rd/
And here is an article with some quotes from Leufroy about his time at Prolific Prep.January 27, 2015 at 5:51 pm #17904
Intersting take on that Prep. Kids take their courses at a local HS? Prolific Prep is just for sports.January 27, 2015 at 6:03 pm #17905
The interesting thing about Prolific Prep is that you need a 3.75 cum in order to become a part of the program. I suspect that it may be a basketball academy that wants to make sure that the student can handle academics and the demands put on by the basketball. It looks like they do a lot of traveling to get games.January 27, 2015 at 6:18 pm #17906
I was just scanning their sched. Cant say I know anything about the opposing teams but a lot of States :).Glad its not another IMG.January 27, 2015 at 6:29 pm #17907
MH’s production has come down a bit from his torrid start but I’m kinda salivating over a rotation of AP, BA, and KL at the wing. KA and MS at the PG and TK, JG, JC and MH in the frontcourt. Tha’s a pretty good 9 man rotation. I would really like to see someone else step up too challenging for minutes to create the competition we need.
But that’s the future. Tomorrow is Bucknell and a win there would be huge.January 27, 2015 at 8:33 pm #17916
What about CS?January 27, 2015 at 8:40 pm #17917
Corey and Stefan graduate this year.January 27, 2015 at 9:21 pm #17919
Caleb Sedore!January 27, 2015 at 9:40 pm #17920
I’d love to see Caleb get some minutes next season, but I think he will need some time to adjust to the college game for a few reasons:
– as a very general rule, it usually takes big guys longer to develop than guards (JG would be a great example of this, TK would be an exception)
– he’s very young for his age, and pretty thin
– he’s from a small rural town in upstate New York, so he hasn’t played near the level of competition of Holba or especially Leufroy during his high school practices and games
– Kempton, Goldsborough, and Chuku all come back next year + JRG and KM fighting for front court minutes. I think MH will primarily play the 4 as well so it will be a crowded battle at the 4/5.
