2024 Caden Bell (NC GBB):
Bell has been on an absolute tear this year and has proven that he is one of the clear go-to players for his team this season. Time after time, Bell answered “the bell” with his performance, and he did so once again at the Tyler Lewis Hoopfest with an impressive 30-point showing on Day 1 and backing that up with a 28-point showing on Day 2. Bell not only looks strong, but he is playing with a ton of confidence, showing his consistency and impact from multiple levels, filling it up and creating for himself, but also doing what his team needs him to do. Bell has had a strong start to the season and he showed that in a big way this past weekend. It isn’t hard to see that he should be a player on many radars.
2024 J3 Swindell (Caldwell Academy):
How about the unsigned senior stepping up for his team with an impressive 32-point, 9-rebound performance? Swindell is one that has been on our radar for some time now, and we have seen the growth, development, and maturity he has made over the years. He has added a lot more to his game, showing his perimeter shooting more as well as his ability to finish downhill. He embraces his role and looks to impact the game in other ways, and as he showed at the event, can step up and be a tremendous offensive player as well.
2024 Isaiah Sanders (HP Christian):
Sanders is a smaller guard but one that should have more action with his recruitment. His speed, his ability to create, his IQ, and his vision… all are impressive while also being able to be a strong offensive threat. Sanders has strong instincts in his ability to make plays for himself or for others, creating strong off the dribble, and plays with a scrappy feel to his game. He continues to be a shot-maker but also uses his burst to get by defenders and make plays out in the open floor but is also one who can be reliable without the ball.
2024 Camren Daniels (Southern Durham):
Daniels is another senior that I like and should be one that schools could look at more. He has the size that you like at 6’6, and he can be a player that not only plays multiple positions but can also be effective offensively in a variety of ways. He shows that he can play off the ball and be a shot-maker from multiple levels, but also be a creator in the open floor, pushing in transition, and making plays off the bounce to get downhill. Daniels is a sneaky player to keep an eye on and could be a nice piece for a future program down the road.
