The Official R.J. Barrett Video Archives

R.J. Barrett needs no introduction. He is the Flo40 No. 1 prospect in the country, the face of high school basketball, the star for national power Montverde Academy (FL), and a future Duke Blue Devil.

The 6-foot-5 wing is as good as it gets at this level, and it is time to take a look at some of his best performances live on FloHoops.


As a sophomore, the smooth, left-handed Barrett lit up the 2016 Culligan City of Palms Classic in December with dynamic games against Jonesboro (GA) and Flo40 guard M.J. Walker, dropped a stacked IMG Academy (FL) team, and got some big-time buckets late in the championship game against Memphis East (TN).

For his performances, Barrett, a Canada native, collected Most Valuable Player honors.


A couple of weeks later, Barrett returned to put up big games in the ARS Rescue Penny Hardaway National Hoopfest.

Barrett returned to the Sunshine State in late January and got the best of 2017 Flo40 No. 7 Kevin Knox and Tampa Catholic (FL) in the ARS Rescue Rooter National Hoopfest in Tampa.

Then, in the spring, Barrett led the Nike EYBL in scoring at 28.0 points and grabbed 10.8 rebounds per game in eight games. He poured in 26 points in his debut against Southern Stampede (GA) and torched Team United (NC) for 41 points at Session III.

Barrett, who reclassified to 2018 this summer, has played on the biggest prep stages already, and perhaps none was bigger than his 38-point, 13-rebound, five-assist performance in Team Canada's stunning victory over Team USA in the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cup this summer.

There was no doubt Barrett was going to make his final season one to remember. 

Montverde Academy, in large part to Barrett's efforts, maintained a No. 1 ranking for the entire regular season and is hungry to finish the story and take home a GEICO National title in March.

2019 Wing Scottie Lewis Is Down To Kentucky, Florida

TINTON FALLS, N.J. — Scottie Lewis, the 6-foot-5 wing from the Ranney (N.J.) School and the Team Rio AAU program, is focusing on two SEC schools at this point — Florida and Kentucky — but has no timetable for a decision.

EuroLeague To The NBA: The Skills That Translate Most

With NBA training camps and preseason play right around the corner, the expectations are high for several young European players — such as Luka Doncic and Elie Okobo — to make an immediate impact on their new teams. While franchises have more information than ever before regarding potential draft prospects, including their stats, size, and athletic measurements, it’s difficult to tell what information actually matters. Were Mikal Bridge’s stats just a product of the Villanova system? Should we be worried about Doncic’s shooting? Was the beginning of Trae Young’s season just an anomaly?

NBA Scouts Are Worried About Luka Doncic's Shooting, But Should They Be?

There has perhaps never been a more hyped European draft prospect than 19-year old Slovenian superstar Luka Doncic. After leading Real Madrid to a EuroLeague championship while earning MVP and Final Four MVP honors along the way, the youngster convinced many that his accomplishments in the second-best league in the world all but assured him the top overall pick. However, as draft night got closer, criticisms aimed at his athleticism and shooting led him to slip to third, before he was eventually traded to the Dallas Mavericks for the fifth pick (Trae Young) and a future first-round pick.
