Stating things off, we look at a player who consistently found ways to involve himself in the action, Bralyn Williams. He’s a quick, scrappy guard prospect with an unselfish approach and steady two-way presence. Williams is a useful creator, both for himself and others, and makes quality decisions with the ball in his hands. He displays sharp instincts at the point of attack and forces turnovers at a solid rate. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher around the basket. Coach Threadgill on Williams: “Bralyn is a speedy guard with a good handle. He’s a very good on-ball defender with great anticipation in the passing lanes. Plays hard on both ends of the floor. Stood out as a great team player throughout the day.” Williams enjoyed a positive showing at camp and should be able to carve out a useful role for North Raleigh Christian over the coming months.
#38: 5’6 ’26 Jayden Scales (Parkland)
Next, we look at a player who made an excellent impact despite being the smallest camper on this team, Jayden Scales. He’s a tough, scrappy guard prospect with a high motor and solid feel for the game on either side of the ball. Scales utilizes his quickness to touch the paint at a consistent rate, but also knocks down jumpers at a nice percentage. He’s a pesky defender and willing hustle player who understands how to outwork opponents. Next in his development process is working on becoming a craftier ball-handler, as it would make him a more lethal offensive threat. Coach Threadgill on Scales: “Jayden is a super-quick guard that comes up with a lot of 50/50 balls. He shoots it well from three-point range. I’d like to see him work on his shooting off the dribble. Displays a hard-nosed approach on both ends of the floor. Very coachable and loves to play the game. Needs to continue polishing his ball-handling skills.” Scales did a lot of things well during his time at camp and should be a useful piece for Parkland over the foreseeable future.
#64: 5’11 ’25 Drew Johnson (Jordan)
Moving onto a player who still managed to showcase a dynamic identity despite suffering an injury, Drew Johnson. He’s a smart, tough, dynamic point guard prospect with a balanced approach and great understanding of how to control the action. Johnson possesses a tight, crafty handle and sharp vision, which allows him to apply seemingly nonstop pressure as a playmaker. That being said, he’s more than capable of asserting himself as a scorer from all three levels. Johnson utilizes his toughness, quickness, and open-floor speed to cause consistent problems for the opposition. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would make him a more complete player.

He maintained a positive attitude and was willing to be coached when necessary.” Johnson proved to be an asset during his time at camp and should be a definite difference-maker for Jordan over these next two seasons.
#87: 6’1 ’25 Mason Dobie (First Flight)
Continuing onto a player who arguably stood out as the top shooting threat in attendance, Mason Dobie. He’s a smart, skilled, fundamentally-sound guard prospect with creation skills and elite perimeter shooting—both from midrange and beyond the arc. Dobie is capable of hitting jumpers off the catch or bounce and absolutely filling it up in a hurry. He’s a quality playmaker who looks to attack closeouts and set up others whenever necessary, but still shoots the ball with a ton of confidence and can disregard lots of defensive pressure. Dobie contains his assignment well defensively, rebounds his position, and understands how to produce in various different roles. He can take over or find opportunities within the flow of the action. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it will help prepare him for the next level. Coach Threadgill on Dobie: “Mason can flat-out shoot the ball and has the high IQ to go with it. He can also get to the basket and finish with either hand.

#106: 6’2 ’24 Noa Von-Pine (Freedom Christian)
Moving onto a player who showcased a very steady, well-rounded identity, Noa Von-Pine. He’s a smart, strong, unselfish wing prospect with a natural understanding of how to fill in the gaps on both ends of the floor. Von-Pine is a notable shooting threat, both from midrange and beyond the arc, with the ability to create for himself or operate as a spot-up option. He attacks closeouts, sets up others, and offers consistent energy as a rebounder. Von-Pine also contains his assignment well defensively and doesn’t shy away from physical play. Next in his development process is working on getting quicker, as it would make him an even better penetrating threat. Coach Threadgill on Von-Pine: “I really enjoyed coaching Noa. He plays team ball and is very unselfish. Looks to get his teammates the ball in scoring positions. Shoots it well from the outside and has a great IQ. Noa has the tools to be a great player. He has a great attitude and is very coachable.” Von-Pine made a lasting impression during his time at camp and should be a target for various college coaches during his upcoming senior season at Freedom Christian.
#112: 6’2 ’26 Itzhak Rachmuth (Thales Academy)
Continuing onto a player who found a lot of success through making hustle plays and doing the little things, Itzhak Rachmuth. He’s a tough, high-motor guard prospect with a scrappy defensive presence and an understanding of how to make his presence felt offensively. Rachmuth is a capable scoring threat, but typically looks to defer to others, contain his assignment defensively, and get out in transition. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Threadigll on Rachmuth: “Itzhak is the type of hustle player who gets all the loose balls. He has a great midrange game and can get his shot when necessary. Team player who rebounds well on the offensive end of the floor. Needs to continue to work on his ball-handling and consistency from beyond the arc to round out his overall game.” Rachmuth did a lot of things well throughout camp and should be poised for a productive sophomore season at Thales Academy.
#126: 6’4 ’24 Joshua Moore (Parkland)
Next, we look at a player who definitely stood out as a leader on both ends of the floor, Joshua Moore. He’s a smart, tough, well-rounded wing/forward prospect with an unselfish nature and the ability to affect all facets of the game. Moore scored from all levels, got his teammates involved, and outworked his assignment with regularity. He’s a great finisher, defender, and rebounder who understands how to set the tone on either side of the ball. Next in his development process is working on his consistency from beyond the arc, as it would make him even more difficult for opponents to contain.

Moving onto a player who possesses an enticing crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Evan Truzy. He’s a long, mobile big man with solid touch and an unselfish approach on both ends of the floor. Truzy is a capable finisher, but arguably found most of his opportunities as a rebounder and interior defender. He looks to make hustle plays and run the floor hard in transition. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would open him up to more scoring chances. Coach Threadgill on Truzy: “Evan is a big man that rebounds the basketball on both ends of the floor. He has a couple of moves on the block, but needs to work on posting a little higher to avoid putting himself underneath the backboard when he looks to score. Overall, Evan had a good camp and played very hard.” Truzy highlighted a lot of intrigue during his time at camp and should be a prospect to monitor at Reynolds over the foreseeable future.
