Coach: Tyler Lewis
#10: 5’6 ’28 Gracie Shore (Advance)
Starting things off, we look at a player who performed exceptionally well as one of the youngest campers on display, Gracie Shore. She’s a young, steady, skilled guard prospect with a high motor and willingness to do whatever possible to provide her team with an edge. Shore is a smooth shooter, crafty ball-handler, and willing passer. She’s a useful defender who makes hustle plays and battles for rebounds. Next in her development process is working on getting stronger, as it would allow her to become an even more physical player. Coach Lewis on Shore: “Gracie is a smart, high-IQ guard who plays the game at a good pace. She has good court vision and makes everyone around her better. Really good in catch-and-shoot situations. Displays a quick first step and competes hard defensively. She’s not scared to dive on the floor. Very tough! Possesses a really good skillset for an eighth-grader. Needs to improve handling pressure against physicality.” Shore enjoyed a terrific showing at camp and will be a prospect to monitor over the coming years.
#17: 5’5 ’25 Miyah Campbell (Grace Christian)
Next, we look at a player who found success in a variety of different roles, Miyah Campbell. She’s a smart, unselfish guard prospect with the ability to make an impact with or without the ball in her hands. Campbell shoots the ball at a high clip and is capable of dictating the action as a playmaker, but understands how to produce within the flow of the action. She’s a solid rebounder and capable defender who plays with consistent effort. Next in her development process is working on her ability to move without the ball, as it would make her an even better spot-up threat. Coach Lewis on Campbell: “Miyah is a smart player and good shooter from the perimeter. Crafty finisher around the basket. Plays with a tough, hard-nosed approach. Fundamentally sound player and understands how to make the right basketball play. Possesses a good skillset. Miyah will need to improve footspeed and lateral quickness in order to get past defenders.” Campbell proved to be an asset during her time at camp and should be a focal point for Grace Christian going forward.
#26: 5’7 ’26 Claire Barber (Green Level)
Moving onto a player who stood out through her general polish as a scoring threat, Claire Barber. She’s a smart, scrappy, high-motor guard prospect with a smooth shooting stroke and the ability to create for herself and others off the dribble. Barber attacks the basket, makes quality decisions, and finishes well around the basket. She can generate shots with the ball in her hands or find success as a spot-up threat. Next in her development process is working on getting quicker, as it would make her a better defender at the point of attack. Coach Lewis on Barber: “Claire has a great attitude and overall control of the game. She possesses a high basketball IQ and makes the right basketball play with consistency. Good shooter from the perimeter. Showcased good leadership qualities and has a great understanding of the game. Claire will need to improve her quickness and decision making when pressured. She can also work on getting better as an on-ball defender.” Barber did a lot of things well at camp and should be a key piece for Green Level over the foreseeable future.
#51: 5’9 ’28 Malone Hicks (Knightdale)
Continuing onto a player who shined in various ways despite being one of the youngest campers in attendance, Malone Hicks. She’s a long, athletic, high-motor wing prospect with a well-rounded skillset and the ability to produce in a variety of different roles. Hicks scores the ball at an efficient rate from all levels, creates effectively off the bounce, and can find opportunities as a cutter or spot-up threat. She’s also an excellent defender and two-way rebounder, especially for her size/position. Next in her development process is working on the use of her off-hand, as it would make her an even better creator off the bounce. Coach Lewis on Hicks: “It’s hard to believe Malone is only in eighth-grade. She plays with a ton of energy/passion and possesses a lot of upside/potential. Malone has really good body control when attacking the basket. Good on-ball defender, shooter from the perimeter, and finisher through contact. Displays good activity in the passing lanes. Malone will have to improve her ability to attack going left and decision making when doubled or penetrating deep in the paint.” Hicks showcased a lot of ability during her time at camp and will certainly be a prospect to monitor closely over the coming years.
#54: 5’10 ’25 Jasmin Yarber (Shabach Christian)
Next, we look at a player who made a lasting impression with her presence on both ends of the floor, Jasmin Yarber. She’s a long, skilled, athletic wing prospect with excellent size and defensive instincts. Yarber penetrates well, finishes around the basket, and knocks down jumpers at a consistent rate from midrange and beyond the arc. She’s a menacing defender who displays nice versatility and anticipation for forcing turnovers. Next in her development process is working on her ability to move without the ball, as it would make her an even more lethal spot-up threat. Coach Lewis on Yarber: “Jasmin offers athleticism and a high motor! Relentless on the glass, active defensively, and has the ability to guard/play multiple positions on the court. She’s a good finisher around the rim and attacks the glass hard on both ends of the floor. Jasmin possesses a quick jump and first step. She can continue to improve her general feel for the game. If her skillset can match her motor, watch out!” Yarber enjoyed a highly productive showing at camp and should be a leader for Shabach Christian over these next two seasons.
#56: 5’10 ’25 Justice Zimmerman (NC GBB)
Moving onto a player who stood out through her ability to fill in the gaps on both ends of the floor, Justice Zimmerman. She’s a strong, unselfish forward with a high motor and excellent feel for the game. Zimmerman displayed great passing instincts, reliable perimeter shooting, and a reliable rebounding presence on either side of the ball. She does a little bit of everything on the court and is capable of adapting to team needs whenever necessary. Next in her development process is working to get quicker, as it would make her a more lethal penetrating threat. Coach Lewis on Zimmerman: “Justice is a strong, physical forward. Vocal leader with great communication and overall knowledge of the game. She uses her body well on driving situations and is a good shooter from midrange and beyond the arc. She does all the little things on the court. Uses angles well around the rim. She will need to improve her quickness and footwork (both offensively and defensively).” Zimmerman made a consistent impact during her time at camp and should be a quality contributor for NC GBB.
#60: 5’10 ’27 Avarie Martin (Davie County)
Continuing onto a player who possesses a highly favorable crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Avarie Martin. She’s a long, skilled forward prospect with a solid IQ and two-way motor. Martin is a useful finisher and post scorer, but is arguably at her best when hitting jumpers from midrange and beyond the arc. She rebounds her position very well and consistently makes her presence felt defensively. Next in her development process is working to get stronger, as it will make her even more difficult for opponents to contain. Coach Lewis on Martin: “Avarie has great size and athleticism. She uses her length really well defensively and is capable of guarding multiple positions. Good skillset and touch around the rim. Avarie has a pretty shot from the perimeter (midrange and three-point territory) and plays hard/competes on both ends of the floor. She needs to be more aggressive, but has all the tools to be a really good player.” Martin enjoyed an excellent showing at camp, especially for her age, and should be a huge piece for Davie County going forward.
#62: 5’10 ’25 Jordin Yarber (Shabach Christian)
Finishing up, we look at a player who showcased an enticing array of skills and physical tools, Jordin Yarber. She’s a long, athletic, well-rounded wing prospect with a phenomenal combination of IQ, size, and toughness. Yarber displays a nonstop motor, which she utilizes to make hustle plays and harass opponents defensively. She scores the ball with relative ease from all levels and is capable of excelling as a spot-up option. Yarber also rebounds at a high volume and pushes the break well in transition. Next in her development process is working on the use of her off-hand, as it would make her a better ball-handler against defensive pressure. Coach Lewis on Yarber: “Jordin was my most consistent player all day. She impacted the game on both sides of the ball. Displayed the ability to defend multiple positions and secure rebounds at a quality rate. Tough as nails and plays with high energy at all times. She’s very active on the glass and finishes well around the rim. Jordin also shot the ball extremely well from the perimeter. She needs to improve her decision making when dribbling into traffic. Jordin sometimes gambles defensively and puts her team in unfavorable positions.” Yarber shined as a leader during camp and should be poised for a productive upcoming season at Shabach Christian.
