#2: 5'10 '24 Isaiah Sanders (High Point Christian)

Starting things off, we look at a player who provided this team with a polished, balanced identity, Isaiah Sanders. He's a smart, crafty guard prospect with an adaptable approach and the ability to produce from either backcourt spot. Sanders is comfortable initiating the offense, creating for others, and seizing opportunities as needed. However, he's also a reliable three-level scorer with the combination of quickness and creation skills to consistently generate clean looks off the bounce. Sanders is a scrappy, high-motor defender who knows how to set the tone at the point of attack and force turnovers at a strong rate. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find more opportunities as a spot-up threat. Coach Kuhn on Sanders: 'Isaiah is a primary ball-handler that is also comfortable off the ball. His tenacious on-ball defense makes a difference on the court. Meanwhile, his off-ball work in passing lanes is high-level.' Sanders did a lot of things well during his time at camp and should be a target for various college coaches over the coming months.

#15: 6'1 '25 Nathan Fife (Sanderson)

Next, we look at a player whose stock has seen tremendous rise over the last calendar year, Nathan Fife. He's a highly skilled, well-rounded guard prospect with a high IQ, active motor, and ability to make an impact with or without the ball in his hands. Fife typically dictates the action as a primary creator, where he's able to get others involved while picking his spots as a scorer. He creates with relative ease, both for himself and others, and applies offensive pressure from all levels. Fife makes quality decisions off the bounce and understands how to properly move without the ball. He contains his assignment well defensively and rebounds at a solid rate for his size/position. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a more lethal penetrating threat. Coach Kuhn on Fife: 'Nathan is comfortable playing the 1 through the 3, and can switch each position if needed. He's very skilled, possesses a great attitude, and was a pleasure to coach.' Fife enjoyed a quality showing at camp and should be poised for another highly productive season with Sanderson.

#18: 6'2 '24 Caden Bell (NC GBB)

Moving onto a player who is arguably one of the most under-recruited guards in the state, Caden Bell. He's a smart, tough, well-rounded guard prospect with the ability to reliably affect all facets of the game. Bell controls the tempo, plays with pace, and displays excellent balance as a two-way floor general. He's able to effectively score from all three levels, but typically looks to get downhill, touch the paint, and finish or set up others. Bell possesses a tight, crafty handle and sharp first step. He utilizes his blend of strength, athleticism, and body control very well to play through contact on both ends of the floor. Bell is a terrific all-around defender who shines through his ability to contain multiple positions and mirror opposing ball-handlers. He's also a phenomenal rebounder for his size/position. Next in his development process is working on his shooting consistency off the bounce, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Kuhn on Bell: 'Caden is a multifaceted guard with great athleticism. He emerged as a quiet leader on this team through defensive effort and ball-handling. He has the potential to make a college coach look very smart for recruiting him.' Bell proved to be an asset at camp and should be a priority for various scholarship-level coaches throughout the upcoming season.

#31: 6'3 '24 Joe Rhyne (Gaston Christian)

Next, we look at a player who is easily in the discussion as one of the premier shooters in the state, Joe Rhyne. He's a smart, steady, unselfish guard prospect with nice size and a low-maintenance identity. Rhyne is a knockdown shooter and lethal spot-up threat who moves extremely well without the ball. He forces opponents to stay attached to his hip at all times, as he only requires a mere glimmer of daylight to get off (and convert) clean looks. Rhyne possesses smooth mechanics and deep range, but can also attack closeouts and finish or make the extra pass whenever necessary. He provides consistent effort defensively, rebounds well for his size, and shows a willingness to make hustle plays. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a more dynamic penetrating threat. Coach Kuhn on Rhyne: 'Joe is highly intelligent and very versatile. He played every position from 1-4. He knows how to get to his spots and has a range of moves that vary depending on his defender. He was a pleasure to coach.' Rhyne did a lot of things well at camp and should be a target for various next-level programs throughout his upcoming senior season.

#34: 6'3 '25 Madden Collins (Christ School)

Moving onto a player who simply understands how to produce alongside any collection of teammates, Madden Collins. He's a smart, steady, well-rounded guard prospect who offers great balance and scoring efficiency. Collins possesses a tight handle and sharp vision, which allows him to comfortably dictate the action as a main creator. That being said, he's also more than capable of playing without the ball and finding opportunities. Collins creates well for himself and others, moves well as a cutter, and makes his presence felt as a spot-up threat. Collins is a solid all-around defender who contains his assignment with relative ease. He outworks opponents on both ends of the floor to make hustle plays and secure rebounds. Next in his development process is continuing to hone his point guard ability, as it will make him even more appealing for college programs. Coach Kuhn on Collins: 'Madden is a very skilled guard who rebounds at an elite level for his position. He has a natural feel for the game, and his ability to change speeds on offense is rarely found in high school athletes.' Collins stood out as a difference-maker at camp and could be poised for a breakout season for Christ School.

#47: 6'5 '24 Isaiah Washington (Winston-Salem Christian)

Continuing onto a player who continues to maintain his status as one of the most polished scorers in the state, Isaiah Washington. He's a long, skilled, athletic wing prospect with the ability to apply seemingly constant scoring pressure from all levels. Offensively, Washington is a reliable shooter, both off the catch and dribble, and strong finisher around the basket. He can play through contact, meet opponents at the rim, and set up others as needed. Washington displays a great balance between taking what he wants and taking what the defense gives him. He contains his assignment well defensively and rebounds at a quality rate for his size/position. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a better defender at the point of attack. Coach Kuhn on Washington: 'Isaiah is a great teammate. He's the type of person who takes ownership of his play at all times. He possesses a strong body and well-rounded skillset that translates to the Division I level.' Washington highlighted a lot of ability during his time at camp and should continue to stockpile offers over the coming months with Winston-Salem Christian.

#50: 6'5 '24 Jacquarie Love (Southern Guilford)

Next, we look at a player who showcased a highly productive, adaptable presence, Jacquarie Love. He's a strong, skilled, athletic wing/forward prospect with the blend of IQ, motor, physicality, and versatility to cause a lot of problems for opponents. Love finished seemingly everything he attempted around the basket, but also hit jumpers at a high percentage and set up others whenever possible. He provided terrific energy as a defender and rebounder, consistently forcing turnovers, containing his assignment, and outworking opponents for extra opportunities. Love doesn't require the ball to make an impact, but has no issue creating for himself or others. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more polished creator. Coach Kuhn on Love: 'Jacquarie alternated in between showing his high-level skillset and high-level athleticism in games. He is a terrific finisher due to elite athleticism. When he shoots it, you know it's going in.' Love made a quality impact throughout his time at camp and should be a target for various college coaches during his upcoming senior campaign.

#66: 6'8 '25 Chris Eagan (Charlotte Catholic)

Moving onto a player who possesses an enticing crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Chris Eagan. He's a long, wiry, skilled forward/post prospect with a nice blend of touch, post moves, and perimeter shooting. Eagan finishes well around the basket, but also spaces the floor well and is capable of attacking closeouts against opposing big men. He displays quality footwork, vision, and scoring moves on the block. Eagan is a solid defender with great off-ball instincts and rebounding prowess. He alters shots well inside the paint and understands how to navigate screening actions defensively. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a better defender on switches. Coach Kuhn on Eagan: 'Chris makes a huge difference by always being the first player down the floor. He's an elite finisher in transition and has great footwork in the post. Displayed high-level defense off the ball.' Eagan enjoyed a productive showing at camp and should be a leader for Charlotte Catholic going forward.

#71: 6'8 '24 Sean Birmingham (Concord Academy)

Finishing up, we look at a player who competed at a high level despite already being committed, Sean Birmingham. He's a long, fluid, skilled forward prospect with soft touch and elite floor-spacing ability. Birmingham is a quality finisher and scorer out of the post, but is arguably at his best when applying pressure along the perimeter. He's a knockdown three-point shooter with deep range and the ability to hit jumpers off the catch or bounce. Birmingham is capable of operating within a few dribbles and attacking the basket or pulling up from midrange. He contains his assignment well defensively and secures rebounds at a nice rate on both ends of the floor. Birmingham possesses an excellent combination of IQ, energy, unselfishness, and translatable physical tools. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find even more scoring chances. Coach Kuhn on Birmingham: 'Sean is a very high-level shooter from beyond the arc. He took the job of banging in the paint throughout the games. He's a high-effort kid who has a great attitude and demeanor.' Birmingham did a lot of things well at camp and should be a terrific piece for Indiana State.
