5 Boys’ players to watch
Bruce Brown , Wakefield: A 6-3 athletic slasher with a deadly off-the-dribble jump shot, the sophomore developed a more consistent outside shot and raised his free throw percentage.
Jayde Dawson , Brooks: The 6-1 guard from Montreal averaged 18 points and 5 rebounds last year. An All-Independent School League selection, he will play next year at Cornell.
Nick McKenna , Danvers: An offense player, the 6-2 guard averaged 12 points per game last year. He plans to play collegiately at the Division 3 level.
Isaiah Nelson , North Andover: With excellent range extending beyond the 3-point arc, the 6-6 center (13.2 points per game last season) has committed to play at Division 2 Saint Anselm.
Tyler Nelson , Central Catholic: The 6-2 guard led Central in scoring last season (14.2 p.p.g.) and is a superior knock-down outside shooter with a vastly improved ability to drive and finish.
