6’8 ’21 Ben Burnham (Team Charlotte)
There’s an obvious amount of talent within the Team Charlotte organization, and Burnham has arguably been their most consistent performer of the early season. He’s a long, wiry forward with quality athleticism and an excellent nose for the ball. Burnham plays with a nonstop motor and understands how to overwhelm opponents with his activity level. He’s a useful perimeter shooter that always plays tougher than he appears.
6’5 ’21 Kamell Smith (Cobras 2021)
The Cobras 2021 squad continues to epitomize the team concept on both ends of the floor, and Smith has been at the forefront of their identity. He’s big, strong, and explosive but also possesses a well-rounded skillset and quality feel for the game. Smith can control the action or operate within a role and make plays. He has the makings of a next-level prospect and should attract various college coaches over the next year.
6’1 ’21 Jax Bouknight (Atlanta Timberwolves)
Arguably the most exciting and unselfish team on display, the Atlanta Timberwolves were exceptional behind the stellar play of Bouknight. He’s the clear glue-guy of this roster, consistently doing his fair share of everything within the flow of the game. Bouknight doesn’t require the ball to make plays but did show his ability to run an offense quite effectively. He’s smart, fundamentally-sound, and makes the right play with regularity.
5’11 ’21 Brookes Kahlert (Atlanta Timberwolves)
The Timberwolves operated like a well-oiled machine throughout the day thanks, in large part, to the incredible point guard play from Kahlert. Although he’s very smart and fundamental, Kahlert plays with an unmistakable flair and can really surprise opponents with his quick-twitch craftiness. He’s a reliable shooter with a great change of pace off the bounce and the ability to attack the basket and finish or setup others. Like majority of this team, Kahlert should have a ton of suitors at the next level.
6’1 ’23 Bradin Minton (East Tennessee Kings)
The East Tennessee Kings highlighted a lot of players from previous camps, including Minton—who was arguably their most impressive player on display. He’s long, smart, and extremely skilled, which allowed him to shine in a variety of ways during this contest. Minton is an excellent passer with a terrific understanding of how to breakdown the opposing defense. He consistently set up others but also showcased the ability to score in various different ways. Minton should be one worth noting for the future.
5’10 ’23 Devin Crumble (Raising Young Men)
The Raising Young Men program is a group that seems to do a great job of accumulating and developing talent, and Crumble could be the next in line. He’s a smart, well-rounded guard that does a pretty strong amount of everything on the court. Not only can he effectively run a team, but Crumble also operates very well without the ball due to his cutting and spot-up ability.
6’9 ’22 Jai Smith (Tea Marie)
The Tea Marie squad is absolutely loaded, and Smith is arguably as appealing as anyone on the roster. He’s big, strong, athletic, and moves incredibly well for his size. Smith rebounds and protects the rim at a quality level while finishing nearly everything around the basket. He showed flashes of being able to space the floor, but remained fairly dominant within the paint. Smith should have a slew of high-major programs involved.
6’2 ’22 Gabe Proctor (Tea Marie)
Every great team needs to have capable role players, and Proctor stands out as the main low-maintenance player on the entire roster. His entire identity is centered around being a 3-and-D player, which doesn’t require him to do too much or operate outside of his comfort zone. Proctor understands how to space the floor, keep the ball moving, and make the extra pass whenever necessary.
5’10 ’23 Jameen Moore (Asheville Game Changers)
Though somewhat undersized, it’s easy to appreciate the overall ability and approach of Moore. He’s a smart, heady guard prospect with an excellent three-point shot and quality change of pace. Moore can get downhill and touch the paint or operate without the ball and pose a useful spot-up threat.
6’3 ’21 Michael Dulin (Carolina Riptide)
The Carolina Riptide has built a reputation as a team that can simply not be measured on paper, and Dulin is a great representation of that notion. He’s shown various flashes over the years, but was arguably the best player on the floor during this contest. Dulin is a calm, steady presence with the ability to attack the basket or knock down jumpers from the perimeter. His game has continued to take steps over time and should attract college coaches sooner than later.
6’3 ’21 Chris Brown (Carolina Rising Stars)
The Carolina Rising Stars have been one of the tougher squads on display over the weekend, and Brown was a massive part of their success. He’s a long, rugged, and scores the ball in a variety of ways. Brown handles the ball well, defends the point of attack, and makes his presence felt in transition.
