Top Performer- 6’6 ’25 Jake Cackovic (Holly Springs)

Although there were a lot of notable guys on display, Jake Cackovic utilized this camp to serve as the setting for his breakout campaign. He was an impressive player throughout the summer, but really showcased flashes of pure dominance at the event. Winning the MVP award was relatively simple for the young, skilled forward. He’s a knockdown shooter who can heat up and destroy teams with his presence from beyond the arc. However, Cackovic is able to assert himself from all levels and consistently take what the opposition gives him. He highlighted IQ, versatility, and still has plenty of upside. He appears to be the next prospect set to emerge from Holly Springs. 

Worth Noting- 6’1 ’23 Nigel Vincent (Piedmont Classical), 6’5 ’24 Devin Sims (Hillside), 5’10 ’25 Darnarian Gibson (Winston-Salem Christian)

The listed trio each had strong showings at camp. Vincent continues to highlight ability as a smart, tough, adaptable glue-guy with defensive prowess and a high motor on both ends of the floor. Meanwhile, Sims is a big, strong, athletic downhill force who seemingly gets to the basket at will and consistently finishes above the rim or through contact. On the other hand, Gibson is a polished point guard with IQ, vision, crafty ball-handling, and useful scoring ability. Each of these guys should warrant attention from college coaches. 

Blossoming Prospect- 6’8 ’25 Chris Eagan (Charlotte Catholic)

Given his array of tools at a long 6-foot-8, Eagan possesses a lot of obvious appeal. However, he’s steadily beginning to tap into his long-term upside and showing progression each time out. Eagan offers a nice blend of size, skill, fluidity, and solid athleticism. He’s a capable finisher and floor-spacer with the ability to rebound, block shots, and run the floor in transition. Eagan should only get better and better over the foreseeable future.
