2025 Levon Jacobs (Davidson Day):

Programs always need an energy guy and one who can bring versatility to the court. Jacobs could be that sneaky underrated prospect that has a blend of size and athleticism, and does what is needed for his team.  One thing you will always get with him is his hard-working mentality and incredible athleticism, finishing strong and with authority at the rim. But with him being 6’8 and mobile, he can make an impact in other ways without being the focal point for a team.

2025 Arael Jones (Northside Christian):

I called him the X-factor for Northside Christian this year, as he does a little bit of everything for this team. I really like his motor and how he competes on both sides of the floor. He also understands how to create and take advantage of his scoring opportunities inside and out, he isn’t afraid to battle and compete on the boards and finds to make a positive impact for his teammates. 

2024 Joshua Dalton (Central Cabarrus):

Dalton is one that we have been monitoring but may have had his breakout performance on Day 1 at the Phenom Holiday Classic.  Central Cabarrus certainly showed why they are one of the best teams in the country, but when you have Dalton showcasing his athleticism and size, throwing it down high at the rim, and attacking the glass, he makes this team even harder to beat.

2025 Sean Dunn (Cox Mill):

Dunn may have had the breakout performance of the event with what he showed throughout the three days. Dunn is one that we have highlighted before but he has taken another step in being a true leader and point guard on the court. Crafty, quick, and decisive guard that has no issue in creating scoring opportunities for himself as well as setting up his teammates.  I also like how he can be a pest defensively for his team.
