Next Level Prospects Basketball is a fantastic program that puts its players first and gives them a platform to succeed. We got a full glance at all their teams this past weekend at the Phenom G3 Showcase but one team really captured my eyes with the amount of recruitable talent they have. Their NLPB-204 National team has a bunch of talent that could help programs of multiple levels win games down the road and should be receiving more calls their way.
When diving into their roster, the two players that really capture your eyes quickly is the duo of 2022 6’2 Mike Best and 2022 6’7 Treyvon Byrd. Best is a very intriguing point guard that absolutely fills up the boxscore, whether it is knocking down three’s, creating off the dribble and getting to the rack, rebounding, or setting up his teammates. He showed it countless times this past high school season and is doing much of the same this summer. Byrd is another player that currently holds a few offers already but should be receiving more attention with his 6’7 LONG wingspan, his athleticism, and body control. He can operate from multiple levels and brings a ton of excitement and takeover ability to the court; really can fill up the stat sheet and operate in many ways on the court.
Then you have others like 2022 Tucker Johnson, who is a 6’6 bully forward that doesn’t take anything from anyone. He absolutely leaves everything on the floor and makes a ton of hustle plays, as well as finishing around the rim. Whether you need him to body up bigger opponents, get on the boards, block shots, or just be a physical presence, he does it all. 2022 6’4 Daniel Lubamba is another player that brings intrigue with his impact in scoring but also on the defensive end.
You also have 2022 TJ Ragland, who is a 6’1 guard that can certainly show he can score the ball well, but also find his teammates, and can get on the boards. He has been a consistent scorer with this group.
2022 6’0 Chad Kinch plays with a lot of emotion and with a chip on his shoulder, while scoring the ball effectively. 2022 5’10 Christian Smith is one of the better shooters from three. 2022 6’7 Quent Harris is a very athletic wing prospect that can post or shoot the ball, while also playing above the rim. 2022 Rashon Leach is a player that brings a nice balance of athleticism, smooth ball-handling, and is a good passer. His brother, 2022 Keshan Leach, is a silent killer that plays hard and fills up the stat sheet; scorer from multiple levels. They have also added 2022 TJ Lester as well to the program.
There is no doubt about it, there is talent that can be found with this team, which is why college coaches should mark them down as ones to watch with Phenom Hoops and throughout the rest of the summer.
