6’6 2022 Trey Ramsey: Foothills Legacy 15U
Ramsey is a sturdy young post player that is incredibly physically developed at this point in his young basketball career. He plays the game with a high motor and aggressive mindset, that can lead to some dumb fouls at this point, but the kid is working his absolute tail off on the glass. He showed the ability to protect the rim and rebound at a high level, while showing signs of brilliance on the low block. As he gets more consistent with his footwork, expect Ramsey to become a really nice prospect.
6’5 2022 Jalen Applewhite: Team Winton 15U
Applewhite is a really strong young forward that finds away to be absolutely everywhere on the defensive end of the floor. On the offensive end he uses his strength to help him finish below the basket and gain extra possessions for his team on the offensive glass. He plays the game with a serious edge, and that translates throughout all levels. Look for Applewhite to become a really productive high school player in the near future, and then college coaches will be watching closely shortly thereafter.
6’0 2021 Kris Robinson: Team Charlotte 16U
Robinson is on my Mount Rushmore of HoopState shooters and just one viewing will show you why. He’s as cold blooded as it gets from beyond the arc and does an incredible job moving without the ball, creating a lot of really good looks for himself. He’s a more than capable secondary ball handler, and does a really nice job playing within the game, a lot of shooters like Robinson tend to force shots up, but he never settles for bad look, he just gets to his spot, squares up, and lets it fly. Has a chance to really breakout this summer.
6’3 2021 Amarie Haynie: Team Charlotte 16U
Haynie looks like he is really starting to come along as an all around lead guard as he is playing an incredibly productive and efficient brand of basketball with this Team Charlotte 16U group. He’s attacking when needed, getting to the paint for easy buckets, making his way to the line as well. His vision is probably is greatest asset at this point, he’s capitalizing on the talent that surrounds him, leading to a lot of success for this CLT group as a whole. Expect Haynie to take the next step as a player over the next 6 months, making him even that more attractive to Scholarship Coaches.
6’3 2021 Zanje Lee: Team Go Hard 16U
Lee was arguably the best prospect on a really nice Team Go Hard 16U squad, displaying the ability to score it from all three levels, get by his man off the dribble, and get to the line consistently. Defensively, he’s capable of guarding 3 positions due to his length and general activity on that end of the court. He should have a really nice summer and get on the radar of college coaches for his 17U season.
6’3 2022 Sam Cogan: Team Charlotte 15U
Cogan is an incredibly smooth and athletic combo guard that does a great job adjusting on the fly to his opposition. He excels in transition where he uses his athleticism to finish above the rim, or in the half court where his decision making and precision from the perimeter shine the brightest. The kid has a keen understanding of how the game is supposed to be played, and has the skillset to gel with a variety of surrounding talent. Should have a huge sophomore year at Lincoln Charter next year.
6’0 2020 Jeremy Mull: PSB Winston Black 17U
Mull is a really nice combo guard that came up with some really timely baskets for his PSB Winston squad in this one. They were down 13-1 at the start of the game, and Mull took the initiative to get his team back within striking distance, and they were ultimately only down by 5 at the halftime break. He showed that he can lead a team, and be their most productive player in the process. Definitely a target for D3 coaches this summer.
5’8 2020 Alex Webb: Carolina Crossovers 17U
Webb is a really shifty floor general that excels at breaking his man off the bounce, getting to the cup, finishing for himself, or finding shooters on the perimeter. He’s got the ball on a string and has made multiple defenders look silly with the way he breaks them down. The Name of team this young man plays on fits his game to a tee. Expect him to have a huge summer with this group.
