Coach: James Smith
#7: 5’2 ’25 Jamari Harvey (Raeford)
Starting things off, we look at a player that made a lasting impression with his nonstop motor, Jamari Harvey. He’s a quick, scrappy guard prospect with solid ball-handling instincts and the ability to operate effectively within a team on both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find more scoring opportunities as an off-ball cutter. Coach Smith on Harvey: “Jamari is a quick guard with good basketball IQ. He hustles on both ends of the floor. Jamari sees the floor well and is a good distributor on offense while showing good hands and footwork on defense, especially on the ball. He has a good first step to his strong hand and can get past the first level. Jamari’s next step will be getting stronger and extending his range.” Havey impacted the game consistently during his time at camp and should have a productive upcoming summer headed before his eighth-grade season.
#10: 5’2 ’26 CP Perry (Salisbury)
Next, we look at a player that consistently stands out with his unselfishness and team-first approach, CP Perry. He’s a young, wiry guard prospect that already communicates, displays a nice feel for the game, and makes his presence felt quite regularly. Perry can knock down open jumpers, make smart passes to teammates, and position himself properly on defense. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it would allow him to shoot it more consistently from distance. Coach Smith on Perry: “CP is a quick guard with good instincts and range. He has an up-tempo style and pushes the ball in transition with the best of them. He sees the court well on both ends of the floor, defends on the ball well, and has good positioning in off-ball defense. His next steps include getting stronger physically and working on his off-hand ball-handling.” Perry continues to highlight a quality foundation at camp and should be a player worth noting for the future.
#20: 5’7 ’24 Carson Brown (Asheville)

He also has good range extending beyond the arc and can put the ball on the floor and create his own shot. His basketball IQ sets him apart from others in his class. He can continue to work on his shot off the dribble and off-hand ball-handling.” Brown enjoyed a productive showing during camp and will be a quality contributor sooner than later at the high school level.
#31: 5’10 ’24 Jackson Sellars (Greensboro)
Continuing onto a player that was certainly among the most impressive defensive performers in attendance, Jackson Sellars. He’s a long, athletic guard prospect with toughness and excellent anticipation instincts as a weak-side shot blocker and when jumping into passing lanes. Sellars is great at getting downhill, attacking the basket, and finishing strong through contact. Next in his development process is working on adding a consistent three-point shot to his arsenal, as it would make him a more lethal offensive threat. Coach Smith on Sellars: “Jackson is a nice-sized wing with good instincts and athletic ability. His on-ball defense is strong and his footwork is solid. Offensively, he has a nice ability to get into the lane and score from the midrange. Jackson moves well without the ball and can finish in transition. His next step will include extending his range and working on his off-hand penetration.” Sellars did a lot for his team throughout camp and certainly has the tools to grow into a very nice prospect.
#32: 5’10 ’24 Misean Rodgers (Raleigh)
Next, we look at a player that understands how to consistently impact the game within his role, Misean Rodgers. He’s a long, fairly versatile, high-motor guard prospect with great size, defensive abilities, and a nice midrange pull-up. Rodgers is quick, defends multiple positions, and rebounds his position well. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher and ball-handler. Coach Smith on Rodgers: “Misean is a high-IQ player with a great motor. His midrange and paint scoring ability is evident and he puts himself in position to make plays on both ends of the floor. He gives maximum effort on offense and defense and doesn’t mind physical contact. His next area of concentration should be ball-handling and developing his offensive game off the dribble.” Rodgers maximized his role nicely during camp and should continue progressing over the coming years.
#36: 5’6 ’26 Will Brown (Brasstown)
Moving onto a player that does a nice job of filling in the gaps on both ends of the floor, Will Brown. He’s a young, strong-bodied wing prospect that is still developing his overall identity on the court. Brown plays hard, within the team concept, and looks to make the right play whenever possible. Next in his development process is working on his consistency as a three-point shooter, as it would add a new dimension to his offensive game. Coach Smith on Brown: “Will is a strong player with a good frame for contact. He uses his body well on both ends of the floor. He understands the game and moves well without the ball. He is also a strong off-ball defender and rebounder. Will is a good passer with good vision instincts. His next steps include being more aggressive on offense and working on a quick release with shot.” Brown worked very hard throughout camp and will be a prospect to watch grow going forward.

Next in his development process is simply working on preparing himself for the high school game, as he already possesses the tools to be an immediate contributor. Coach Smith on Pittman: “Drew is a special player that can do it all on the court. On offense, he can handle the ball and score from any position on the perimeter. He has good range and can also put the ball on the floor and get to the basket. He finishes well in transition and traffic. He works equally hard on the defensive end, where he can guard from point to post. Next steps for Drew’s game are continuing to work on his off-ball defense and moving without the ball on offense to set up his next opportunity.” Pittman enjoyed an extremely productive showing at camp, securing the Mr. Station award with relative ease, and should be a definite prospect worth noting for the foreseeable future.
#53: 6’3 ’24 Daidien Sutton (Wilson)
Finishing up, we look at a player that possesses an incredible crossroads between production and long-term upside, Daidien Sutton. He’s a long, skilled, athletic, versatile two-way wing/forward prospect that can do a strong amount of everything on the court.

His strength allows him to finish well even after contact. He also has a nice touch from the outside. Defensively, he sees the whole court around him and has great timing on weak-side shot blocking and rebounds. The next step for Daidien’s game will include continuing to grow as a ball-handler and improve his consistency as a three-point shooter.” Sutton displayed the makings of a phenomenal prospect and will be one for college coaches to start tracking immediately.
