6’0 2020 Bradley Davis: Foothills Legacy 17U
Davis is a pure scoring combo guard that does an excellent job creating his own shot in the mid-range and out to the 3 point line. He does a great job assessing his defensive matchup and doing what he can to create offense for himself and his teammates. Expect Davis to garner attention from college coaches throughout the rest of the summer.
6’6 2020 Jared Moore: WCBA 17U
Moore is a really fundamentally sound post player that understands what his role is on the offensive end, while bringing a high level of versatility and switch ability on the defensive end. He has great footwork around the basket, using his patience and length to help him got space down there for easy buckets. He runs the floor well, and is extremely focused on the task at hand at all times. A kid that has a chance to compete for scholarships this summer.
6’3 2019 John Bean: Denver Nuggets 17U
Bean is a smooth and versatile backcourt piece that plays the game with an edge every single time he steps onto the court. He can score it from all three levels comfortably, and really get going from the perimeter if you let him. He’s also shown a capability of running the team and initiating offense. Bean is a bonafide leader as well, he understands how to get his guys ready for the moment, and is extremely comfortable in that leadership role.
6’7 2020 Darius Perry: Upward Stars Columbia 17U Joyce
Perry is a really smooth post presence that does a great job finishing around the basket with either hand and serving as a high level rim protector on the defensive end. He’s excellent when it comes to attacking 17 feet and in, using his footwork and athleticism to create space for himself down low. Expect Perry to lead this Upward Columbia group to a lot of success this summer, as he should garner attention from college coaches in the process.
6’7 2020 Kelton Talford: Carolina Pressure 17U
Talford is a really versatile combo forward prospect that plays the game with an edge and a high energy level. Every moment he’s on the court he’s incredibly active, using his length to create problems on the defensive end, or rebounding the ball at a high level on both ends of the floor. He can create for himself offensively, showcasing an ability to the rack at will, and finish through contact with relative ease. Talford should attract attention from D1’s in the April Live Period, laying the foundation for what should be an incredible summer for himself and the rest of this Carolina Pressure group.
6’6 2021 Omarion Bodrick: DTA Elite 17U
Bodrick has a chance to have a major impact at Independence next season, filling the void of a guy like Matt Smith (Murray State). He’s a super athletic combo forward that will absolutely put it on your head in transition, while also being a knockdown mid range guy at an early point. As Bodrick continues to expand his range on the jumper and add strength, he should become a priority for Mid-Major programs in the next 12-18 Months.
6’1 2019 David Murphy: NC Empire Perry
Murphy is an incredibly smooth and shifty combo guard that can get his own shot off anytime he wants! He can score with the best of them, using his quick crossover to create space before he hops into his pull-up, and he’ll put it on your head in transition if you aren’t looking. Murphy should have some options for next year after the April Live Period if he continues to do what he has been the last few weeks. Definitely a guard that has a skillset that translates to the next level.
6’3 2020 Tyrone Barbee: Carolina Magic
Barbee is a KNOCKDOWN shooter that loves the corner 3 with every bit of his heart. He defends the point of attack really well, and loves flaring out to the 3 point line in transition where he makes his money. One of the better shooters in the event and should garner some interest this summer.
5’7 2019 DJ Thomas: NC Red Storm 17U
Thomas is the epitome of an electric factory with the way he gets by anybody trying to stay in front of him. He’s a vastly improved 3 point shooter, proving to be more than reliable from beyond the arc, while also bringing the intensity on the defensive end, locking into his man and forcing multiple turnovers. Thomas is one of the most exciting players in the HoopState and lived up to it in his first game of the day.
6’5 2020 Jaden Scriven: Team Wall SE
Scriven is a really versatile combo forward that found a way to have a really productive morning with his Team Wall SE group. He excels in transition, where he’s looking to finish above the rim, but in the half-court he’s really comfortable operating from the high post area. He’s looking to get to the basket 90% of the time, he plays with a high motor at both ends and should be competing for scholarships throughout the summer.
6’3 2020 Myles Adams: Team Hickory 17U
Adams is a silky smooth combo guard that plays a really productive brand of basketball, despite never forcing the issue. He plays the game with total control, allowing the offense to develop and ensuring that his team is in sync with one another at all times. He scores it from all three levels, and gets to the line at a decent clip. He’s already caught the attention from a few college coaches in attendance and should continue to do so throughout the spring/summer.
