MN Wrath 15U action

I had the chance to take a couple of MN Wrath 15U games today at BSM. It was my 1st opportunity to see one of the top freshmen in the state in Shelby Moats of Waconia. A nice roster of kids from the SW metro as the entire roster is Eden Prairie, Chaska and Waconia. Moats didn't disappoint in the 2 games. In the 1st game vs BSM coach John Moore's EOTO squad, he finished with 14 pts and 8 rebs. This included the 2 icing free throws with 20 seconds to go in a 45-43 win. In the 2nd game vs a St. Paul Raiders 8th grade team, he scored the 1st 5 points of the game on the way to a 48-13 win. 10 pts and 8 rebs for him in that game. STP with only 1 basket in the 2nd half of that game. Moats reminds me of Raef LaFrentz as he's a lefty who has the ability to step out and knock down shots. Obviously he's not LaFrentz yet, but if he grows to 6'9 with his range and soft touch, he'll be a nice player for somebody at the next level. I also liked his agility as demonstrated by jumping a pass to the wing and taking it the other way. The future also looks bright for Eden Prairie as Jack Klukas and Blake Wragge are both good players. Blake isn't the lights out shooter that Ethan is right now, but you can see the similarity in their games. Evan Koehler of Chaska also productive for the Wrath. I also need to mention Isiah Zierdan of BSM. Nice point guard with good vision. It wouldn't surprise me to see him take the PG reins at BSM as a junior.
