6’0 ’22 Kory Davis (1Carolina)
The 1Carolina program possesses a ton of intriguing prospects within their program, and Davis has performed well with both squads in attendance. Playing up an age group, he really stood out with his defensive prowess and ability to really harass opposing guards for 94 feet. Davis is also very quick and fast in the open floor, which allows him to consistently get by opponents and lead the break. He touches the paint at a quality rate and displays a nice balance between scoring and playmaking.
5’10 ’22 Justin Monden (Raleigh’s Finest)
Though the entire Raleigh’s Finest team has been terrific over the last month, Monden was arguably their most impressive performer on the day. He’s slightly undersized but plays with such poise and polish, able to effortlessly run a team while picking his spots as a scorer. Monden defends well, makes the extra pass, and is simply a smart all-around player. He should have a very productive upcoming season.
6’2 ’21 Tharius Suggs (Hoop Wall Street)
It’s easy to find productive players within this Hoop Wall Street roster, especially when Suggs is on the floor. He’s great in transition, but also understands how to find scoring opportunities as a cutter. Suggs provides great length, toughness, and shows a willingness to make the hustle plays on both ends of the floor. His game isn’t necessarily flashy, but it’s certainly effective.
6’3 ’21 Cohen Gaskins (Upward Stars Columbia)
Despite some minor struggles over the last month, Gaskins seems to have gotten out of his slump. It was especially evident during his first contest of the day, where he displayed vision and scoring ability on multiple levels. Gaskins has a very fundamental approach to the game and consistently shows an understanding of how to make the best possible play.
6’6 ’23 Julius Harrison (NC Gaters)
After a stellar showing yesterday, Harrison has continued his quality all-around play with the NC Gaters. Not only is he hitting perimeter shots at an improved clip, but Harrison is also still doing his usual amount of everything. His production has been undeniable and his well-rounded skillset has allowed him to operate as an overqualified glue-guy with this group. Harrison displayed a high motor and great transition ability while filling in the gaps on both ends of the floor.
6’7 ’22 Jackson Noble (NC Gaters)
Like his frontcourt mate, Noble’s return and overall excellence with the NC Gaters deserves appropriate recognition. In many ways, he’s been their x-factor over the weekend. Noble has great length and understands how to utilize it effectively around the basket, both as a finisher and shot-altering presence. He plays hard and is tougher than opponents seem to think. Noble also showed the ability to step out and knock down perimeter jumpers with consistency.
5’9 ’22 Camian Shell (TLBA)
There’s so much talent within this TLBA roster, and Shell never seems to waver in his smart, heady approach to the game. He’s a brilliant game manager with high IQ, vision, and the ability to chop up opposing defenses with his penetration skills. Shell is a capable shooter and excellent defender—especially for his size. His reclassification should only make him more appealing for college coaches.
6’4 ’23 Jah Short (Garner Road)
The appeal should be fairly obvious with Short (and the rest of the Garner Road roster for that matter), especially given how well he’s shined as a leader with this group. He possesses very impressive physical traits, but also highlights an amazing all-around skillset. Short is smart, plays hard, and already understands how to unselfishly dominate the game on both sides of the ball. Expect him to emerge as a star and Division I priority going forward.
6’0 ’22 Tristin Harkins (Fayetteville Flash)
The Fayetteville Flash have a quality amount of talent within this roster, and Harkins was as impressive as anyone. He’s a long, wiry guard prospect with toughness and a terrific balance between scoring and playmaking. Harkins was an absolute menace defensively but also controlled the action on offense with IQ and poise.
6’7 ’22 Treyvon Byrd (Tea Marie)
In terms of raw talent, one would be hard-pressed to find many prospects more enticing than Byrd. He was already a Division I talent in his original class, but simply vaults himself into a new territory as a prospect upon reclassifying. Byrd rebounded, defended multiple positions, attacked the basket, and showed his normal amount of athleticism. He should see an uptick in his recruitment sooner than later.
6’3 ’21 Michael Myrie (Team Hickory)
Team Hickory has been getting it done over the last month or so, and Myrie is arguably as appealing as anyone on the roster. He’s a big, strong, physical guard prospect with the ability to handle the ball, create off the bounce, and play above the rim. Myrie is a great rebounder with the necessary skills to push the break in transition.
6’3 ’21 Xavion Atkinson (Garner Road Whitley)
The Garner Road Whitley squad is simply loaded with next-level prospects, and Atkinson has been quite impressive over the weekend. He’s long, tough, athletic, and fairly skilled. Atkinson did a little bit of everything while making hustle plays and filling in the gaps on both ends of the floor. He has next-level ability and could help a variety of programs.
