Top 10 Prospects Playing in Peoria

https://www.suntimeshighschoolsports.com/2019/03/1...

7. Perry Cowan, 6-4, DePaul Prep (Sr.)

The Ivy League recruit who is headed to Brown has helped put DePaul Prep basketball on the map with his steady, consistent, blue-collar approach over the past four years.

Cowan’s make-up as a player is off the charts. He’s been so productive in filling a stat sheet and, most importantly, Cowan does all the little things to help a team win and is integral in developing a culture within a program. Where you really appreciate Cowan is with his approach at the defensive end. He defends and doesn’t take plays off.

The Rams can count on Cowan for 18.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and two assists a game.

Desmond Cambridge 2.0?

Would you ever describe Cambridge as a "blue collar"" player?

While I continue to reserve judgement on recruits until I have seen them against D1 competition, I like what I have heard about Cowen from multiple sources. I feel the same way about Danial Friday from Detroit. I am also impressed about the limited minutes we saw from Jaylan Gainey in the last two games.

Reading about him and seeing a little film, he strikes me as the next Obi Okolie more than Cambridge, but I’d also settle for the first Perry Cowan.

Good point. This season I had described Cambridge as Brown's version of J.R. Smith: the guy who can shoot you into a game or out of a game, and can do both over the course of a single game.

Yes. The Microwave at times. At times the Freezer.

Hard to compare anybody to Cambridge given his incredibly unusual makeup. Incredible leaper and smooth shooter that couldn't handle the ball or drive to the basket. Just not part of his game.

From what I have seen Cowan is a smooth shooter who does get to the hole but isn't terribly aggressive on offense. He's a plus athlete for the league but not explosive. He reads as a great get for Brown, but not one to fill the holes left by Okolie or Cambridge. At least not this year.

Agree with Bear that Dan Friday is a good-looking player. Maybe the best in the class.
LET'S go BRU-no (duh. nuh. nuh-nuh-nuh)
