6’0 2022 Davion Cunningham: Team Loaded 704 McCullough 15U
Cunningham was arguably the most impressive prospect in the first game of the day with his ability to attack off the dribble and find open teammates when the defense collapses on him. He plays the game with a high level of relentlessness, constantly in attack mode, leaving defenders on their heels and often in the dust. It’ll be intriguing to track his development from this point, but he has really set himself up with a nice foundation of tools to work with as he moves forward.
6’3 2022 Jalen Booker: Team Loaded 704 McDonough 15U
Booker is a long attacking wing that did a great job beating his man off the dribble and getting to the cup for easy buckets. Defensively, he plays with a high level of intensity, using his length to create problems for the opposition and never takes too many chances. He had a really impressive showing and should be a fun guy to track in the coming years.
5’2 2025 Owen Calvert: PSB Winston-Salem 12U
Calvert is a smooth lead guard that clearly has an understanding of the game that’s beyond his years. He’s incredibly unselfish, constantly looking for friends to pass to. He’s a great young true point guard that should become a really nice player if he continues to work.
5’7 2024 Will Googins: Race City Flames
Googins was an absolute catalyst in this one, doing a little bit of everything on the floor to help his team get a win. He can play either guard spot, and did a nice job playing in the high post at times as well. He’s clearly a player that plays the game with a high level of calmness, always confident in his decision making, and consistently made plays throughout. He’s got a chance to be a really good High School player in a couple of years.
6’1 2023 Stan Ballard: Wilmington Excel
Ballard is one of the better 14U prospects I’ve seen all weekend with his 3 level scoring capabilities, excellent vision, and willingness to work on the glass for difficult buckets. He played all 5 positions for his team in this one and looked extremely comfortable in every single one, he understands what it takes to excel within whatever role he’s needed to play. Once he gets to the high school level I expect him to play primarily on the wing, but his ball skills might continue to improve and he can be a full time point guard. Regardless, he’s a high level player at this point in his young basketball career.
