2020 Mason Griggs (Northwestern): Grigg is fun to watch on the floor. Of course, people know him with his athletic ability but his game is much more than that. He plays smart, has great speed on the floor, and just gets downhill. A fierce competitor and love his play when he gets out in transition.
2020 6’9 Seryee Lewis (AZ Compass): The senior big stepped up offensively and on the boards on Day 1 for his team. He played with a physical nature, finishing through contact and getting on the glass consistently. Lewis played with a strong feel all game long and was efficient scoring-wise.
2021 6’2 Frankie Collins (AZ Compass): Garnering offers all around the country, one can see why he is a big-time prospect. He made a big impact in an array of ways, distributing the ball all around with multiple assists as well as scoring the ball well in transition. He got it done on both ends of the floor, being a true lead point guard but also creating turnovers.
2020 5’11 Najir Underwood (Northside Christian): The senior leader stepped up when his team needed. Missing a few key players, Underwood played sound all game long. Knocking down multiple three’s and mid-range shots with confidence but also got after it defensively, creating four steals on Day 1.
2021 6’11 Alex Tchikou (Dream City Christian): The junior big brings EXTREME versatility to the floor and it immediately stands out. There is a reason why high major schools are recruiting him hard. You don’t see too many 6’11 players with his perimeter game and feel for the game. Can play multiple positions on the floor on both ends of the court and is a vocal leader.
2021 6’3 Darrius Davis (Moravian): Davis is just a gamer on the court. He makes all the little players on the floor on both ends and is such a competitor. It may not always show up in the box score but he makes his team better.
2020 6’0 Shakeel Moore (Moravian): In the second half, he simply took over scoring in the second half. Moore just stays in attack mode and his aggressiveness on the floor is tough to stop. His combination of speed, athleticism, and play-making ability should have NC State excited for the future. He showed it all on Day 1.
2020 Randi Neal (South Pointe): What a performance on Day 1 at the Battle at the Rock. Scoring 30 points to help her team secure a tough win was impressive. Neal was incredibly efficient on the floor, going 10-for-18 from the floor and stayed aggressive. She also went 10-for-14 from the line.
2023 Milaysia Fulwiley (Keenan): Only a freshman, she doesn’t play like one… that is for sure. She already has the tools to take over a game. Fulwiley is strong with the ball, reads defenses really well and has a great change of pace in her game.
2020 Evan Johnson (Oak Hill): Johnson had one of his better offensive games, making multiple plays, shooting the ball well, and using his speed to get by defenders. He played poised and he looked like he was having fun doing so.
2020 Myles Tate (Dorman): Tate’s ability to create for himself and create space for his shot was impressive. He is a two-way player that can impact a game on both ends of the floor with his quick hands, footwork, and IQ.
2020 Justin Amadi (Dorman): We watched him just a week ago and he continues to impress us with his athleticism on the floor. There is no doubt that he can put a defender on a poster but he plays with such a strong game, he is tough to keep off the boards and in the paint. Amadi plays incredibly physical on the floor.
2020 Cam Thomas (Oak Hill): He is certainly known for his scoring output but he did much more than that today. Yes, he did score the ball with a great feel and at times, there is just nothing a defender can do. But he also broke down defenders with his handle and rebounded the ball extremely well.
