On Saturday we had Top 66 evaluators on site at the Terrapin Classic primarily building 2024 data for our recruiting database which is launching soon. Below are 10 2024's that stood out from the competition.
Tommy Augustine, A, Deerfield (Ma.), Next Level: Augustine was probably the best 2024 attackman at the event. Great hands, shifty and slick. He filled up the net in a variety of ways. To start the second half in one game he got underneath with his quickness and finished in front. A couple plays later he rolled back to his right and snapped a shot under the bar.
Carl Dagher, SSDM, Walton (Ga.), Thunder: Stood out immediately as a SSDM. Strong legs and great feet with breakaway speed in the open field. He also had a couple goals.
Brady Dumont, A, Bishop Guertin (N.H.), NH Tomahawks: Dumont is a crafty lefty who absolutely filled it up primarily as a finisher. He has a fluid shooting stroke and brought heat from range.
Brayden Fountain, A, Allatoona (Ga.), Thunder: Fountain dominated the first game. At first, he showcased his shooting ability with 3 early transition goals. As the game went along he displayed a complete game by tallying up more points as a dodger and a feeder.
Owen Horning, A, Georgetown Prep (D.C.), Next Level: Next Level had an incredible 1-2 punch with Horning on the right and Augustine on the left. Horning shot at a high percentage and showed the ability to score the ball in multiple ways.
Will Kelly, SSDM, The Haverford School (Pa.), NXT: Kelly stood out immediately with his athletic physique. On ball he was pressuring out to the midfield and knocking dodgers off their line. One play he caught an over the shoulder short hop, blasted by two players and hit the point man.
Michael Marshall, D, Seton Hall Prep (N.J.), Leading Edge: Lefty defender with strong legs and great feet. He was elite off the ground and dominant on ball.
Seth Maxwell, G, Starrs Mill (Ga.), Thunder: A big and patient lefty similar to 2022 Syracuse commit Jimmy McCool. He was quiet with his movement and tracked the ball incredibly well.
Noah Plenn, A, Saint Augustine Prep (N.J.), South Shore: A smooth operating lefty attackman with a very good right hand. Plenn was at his best dissecting the defense with skip passes. He also showed the ability to be an initiator with his COD at X.
Mason Sanden, A, Faith Lutheran (Nv.), West Coast Warriors: Sanden filled up the net and got to the goal whenever he wanted. He has a burst of speed similar to Jordan Wolf
Will Schepis, M, Chattahoochee (Ga.), Thunder: The best midfielder at the event. Schepis put on a show all day long. Two handed skill and elite athleticism. One play he did a same hand split dodge to his right and snapped the defenders stick. He can beat you with speed, shake and power.
