2025 Chance Gladden (Ravenscroft): Gladden has been having a tremendous season and has been putting up some impressive performances. He continued to flourish in a tough battle at the Garner MLK Showcase, Gladden continues to flourish and be the go-to leader as a scoring option. Gladden was able to make plays and penetrate the defense, score well around defenders, get inside the basket, put pressure on the defense, and knock down shots.

2025 Rodmik Allen (New Hanover): Overall, I enjoyed watching this New Hanover team and how they were able to operate on both sides of the ball. Allen was the leader on the court and made some impressive plays, along with his teammate 2025 Zeus Batts. Allen brings tremendous speed, getting by defenders, being a playmaker out in the open floor, finding ways to get paint touches and finishing, but also can score in a variety of ways. Love his energy on the floor and impressed big time at the event.

2024 Quasim Oden (Grace Christian): Oden has had a strong season and should garner attention from college programs; he can help a team and he shows that day in and day out. Oden flourishes with his ability to get downhill and make plays, embracing contact and being a strong driver but he can knock down open shots and set up others as well. A true playmaker that brings a toughness to the court that can help a future program. Take more notice of his impact.

2024 Matt Kirby (Greenfield): Kirby is another senior who played at a high level, continuously making plays and being that tough/scrappy guard on the court. Kirby is at his best when he is in attack mode, getting out in the open floor, attacking downhill, and simply finding ways to score or get to the line. Kirby is a warrior on the court who consistently produces.

2027 King Gibson (TBS): Gibson has been racking up the accolades as of late, and it is so hard not to see his overall impact on the court. He plays with a tremendous feel but also has a ton of upside left in his game. Gibson is excellent at getting to the rim and finishing, while also putting body on the line defensively. Gibson finds ways to impact the game in so many ways on both sides, and he has been playing at a high level this season.

2024 Jayden Quaintance (Word of God): It is always an enjoyment to watch one of the top players, as one can see his overall impact and how hard it is to defend him. His blend of size and impact around the paint is impressive, but he also displays comfort in stepping out, knocking down shots, and being able to make plays off the dribble. He helped lead a balanced attack for Word of God.

2024 Leland Coleman (Hargrave): Coleman is an interesting prospect that makes an impact in a variety of ways on the court. He has good length, showcased he can be a scoring option, plays hard and is active on the defensive end, can alter shots, and can battle down in the paint to score. Overall, he brings a strong presence in a variety of ways and can be effective from multiple positions.

2025 Izzy Eatman (Green Level): Eatman was strong and should be one to keep an eye on, as he helped lead the charge for his team. Eatman was able to mix it up and knock down shots at a consistent rate, whether it was inside or out. He also shows those flashes of his impact on the defensive end. He had a very good second half in which he hit big threes, was able to get to the line, and make big plays, eventually scoring 17 points.
