Malachi Rhodes

Alexander Rice

Alex Timmerman

Jake van der Heijden

Some tweets on van der Heijden and Rhodes from tonight.

"Malachi Rhodes has been a force download this half. Shown nice footwork on the block with soft touch. Big half for @WheelerHoops"

"Jake Van Der Heijden is just incredible. An utter steal for Bucknell. 3:06 in the 1st Half: Ravenscroft 29, NTA 11."

"Jake Van Der Heijden is simply on a different level right now. Bucknell got a good one, at 6’8 & an absolute bucket getter"


Note that the last two tweets are from different analysts.

Van der Heijden ended up with 24 points in a 64-62 win.

Rhodes' Wheeler team beat Norcross, who was the top ranked team in Georgia's largest division. He had a team-leading 17 points and 8 rebounds. Wheeler, btw, has a player who signed with Cal for next year, while Norcross has one signed with USC plus a junior with offers from schools like Duke, Kansas, and 25 others.

Rhodes team had lost earlier in the week to another strong opponent, a game where he had 9 points, 9 rebounds, 3 steals, and 1 block.

third game for Jake VDH, had 15 and 8 pts in first two games, but apparently caught some early season Bisonitis as he was 2 for 7 from the free throw line per MaxPreps. went 4 for 6 yesterday, along with 4 three pointers.

also a 6-8 pf who signed with Xavier and a 6-9 center ranked as 33rd best senior in the state, so Malachi, who based on video and description continues to work primarily inside, did this against strong competition.

"The two best performances that I saw at the 2018 OTR Showcase was without a doubt 2019 PF Malachi Rhodes of Wheeler HS and 2020 PG Deivon Smith of Grayson HS"


Note that this event brought together 16 of Georgia's top teams. The other player mentioned, Deivon Smith, is a junior PG who already has an offer from Florida among others.

pre season rankings and blurbs on greater Chicago area teams for Timmerman's CLC squad. don't recall seeing his junior season stats previously

77. CRYSTAL LAKE CENTRAL: Big man Alex Timmerman is the first Division I recruit from Crystal Lake Central since McDonald’s All-American Bill Heppner. The 6-8, 245-pound Bucknell recruit averaged 16.1 points and 9.6 rebounds a game last season and is one of seven key players returning from a 17-win team

New video of van der Heijden from Phenom Hoops:

Call the Authorities! Bucknell Walked into NC and STOLE Jake Van Der Heijden!


It's only a highlight video, but I do like seeing the effective use of the right hand.

Rhodes' Wheeler team got an OT win tonight. Opponent has a 4/5 star SF who has 10+ power conference offers. Tweets from writer covering the game:

" Wheeler 76 Holy Spirit 68 . . . Malachi Rhodes finished with 14 points. To lead Wheeler in the thriller!!"

"Malachi Rhodes is a grown man in the post. He is clocked in and going to work for Wheeler"

"Malachi Rhodes is asserting himself in the post! Showing his spft touch around the rim for Wheeler as they lead Holy Spirit 33-25"

A few updates:

ALEX TIMMERMAN: 12 points and 11 boards in a win; 20 points in a loss to a tough team.

MALACHI RHODES: 13 points in a 61-57 win in their region opener. Analysis from a blog that follows Georgia hoops:

"Rhodes is a physical 6’7 forward who can play at a high level. He has a good motor and is active on both ends of the floor. He scores well going downhill finishing around and above the rim. He’s athletic enough to defend positions 3 though 5 in some line up’s because of his length and mobility." (Note: Other sources, including Bucknell, say he has grown to 6-8.)

JAKE VAN DER HEIJDEN: 23 points in a 66-48 loss to a pretty good Charlotte Latin team.

ALEX RICE: Season doesn't begin until December 10th. They play a lot of tough NJ private and parochial schools.

Here are some highlights from Van der Heijden's game the other night, which they lost in double OT to a good Trinity team that features a 5 star 6-9 PF, Isaiah Todd, who has offers from North Carolina, Kansas, and about 25 others. There is more emphasis on Todd, but there are also a number of plays that show Van der Heijden's ability. He is #32 in white.

Going to see Malachi Rhodes play tomorrow, as his team follows my school. I will try and post impressions, and maybe even some video.

If I am judging GA basketball correctly, it looks like Wheeler will get a better test tonight vs Westlake than the game you will be seeing vs Aquinas tomorrow.

Rhodes had 11pts, 16 rebs in a 63-62 win over Westlake last night. really like the rebounding numbers we are seeing from him, much against solid to extremely good competition levels. reports on his scoring ability around the rim also encouraging. look forward to ab's observations.

Aquinas vs Wheeler was 26 all midway through the second when Wheeler went on a nice little 51-16 run through the third. Malachi did not score much. He hit both shots I saw him take including one from three. What I really liked was his willingness to make the extra pass to find the open man. I saw at least 5 assists. Also, he was focused on the defensive end more than offense. Active throughout the whole game he moves very well for his size and is willing to do all the little grunt work that makes a team successful.

Agreed Westlake would have been a better look, but the game before was my St. Pius X team defeating the then #1 ranked 7A team in Georgia and I just stayed cause it was easy.
Ray Bucknell!

after the LaSalle game Coach Harrison talked about all the coaching staff hitting the road for recruiting as the players focused on exams.

-Davis to see this years recruits: given report that he was at Rhodes game Saturday, would guess he was at the Ravenscroft game Friday night to see Van Der Heijden. Jake only scored 5, but little brother Eric had a big night, maybe he is in our radar for the future.

-Meehan was headed to Chicago, probably saw Timmerman and hopefully other prospects, then headed to Texas and i think Cali

-Harrison was going to Florida

-Griffin headed to the greater DC area
