6’1 ’23 Derek Bradley (PSB Bethel)
Although there were various standouts for PSB Bethel, Bradley was easily among their most consistent and reliable performers. He’s a smart, strong, sturdy guard prospect with the ability to make an impact with or without the ball in his hands. Bradley’s perimeter shooting and three-level scoring allow him to pose a quality off-ball threat, but he also shows capabilities of being able to run the offense as a floor general. He creates well off the bounce and offers a nice playmaking presence.
5’10 ’23 Arturo Overton (Carolina Pressure)
The Carolina Pressure organization seems to impress each time they take the floor, and that statement is especially true for Overton and his natural leadership by example. He’s so visibly smart and it’s evident in the way he runs a team on either side of the ball. Overton is an extremely poised playmaker with vision and the ability to create for himself and score with ease from all three levels.
6’4 ’21 Daniel Fulp (Big Shots Select Winston-Salem)
The Big Shots Select Winston-Salem squad is extremely balanced, and Fulp is as consistently productive as anyone on the roster. He has a sturdy frame and active two-way motor, which makes him an absolute problem on the glass for all types of opponents. Fulp secures a ton of second-chance opportunities and finishes at a consistent rate around the basket. His energy, willingness to do the dirty work, and low-maintenance identity make him a very reliable piece.
6’3 ’22 Jeremiah Scales (All Carolina)
There were a lot of standouts for this All Carolina group, and Scales made his presence felt on a consistent basis on both ends of the floor. He’s strong, rugged, and fairly well-rounded, which allows him to regularly affect all facets of the game. Scales can create for himself and others or find opportunities without requiring the ball in his hands. He’s a versatile defender and scores effectively from all levels.
6’4 ’22 Mykol Sanchez (North Florida Elite)
The North Florida Elite squad stood out among the tougher, more unselfish teams on display, and Sanchez is a pretty big part of their overall identity. He’s a strong, sturdy, well-rounded wing prospect with a quality spot-up presence and the ability to attack off the bounce or make the extra pass to an open teammate. Sanchez is a solid athlete with a nice frame and toughness as a defender and rebounder.
5’6 ’24 Jacob Lawton (Team CP3)
Though the entire team is worthy of attention from college coaches, Lawton always seems to stand out with his ability to make constant hustle plays. He’s undersized but such an amazing defender and high-motor player with incredible anticipation at the point of attack. Lawton legitimately mirrors opposing ball-handlers and understands how to remove operating space extremely well through utilization of his quick first step. That being said, he’s also a reliable playmaker and perimeter shooter with a quality two-way feel for the game.
6’4 ’22 Jalante Edwards (Big Shots Select Winston-Salem)
Though it was another balanced effort for Big Shots Select Winston-Salem, and Edwards continued to produce on both ends of the floor. He’s a sturdy, mobile forward prospect with a strong rebounding presence and the ability to apply scoring pressure from inside or outside the arc. Edwards plays very hard at all times, can attack off the bounce, and displays feel on both ends of the floor.
6’4 ’22 Elijah Thomas (Sheed Wallace Select)
It should come as no surprise to see Sheed Wallace Select offered another high-level showing, especially given how Thomas performed on both ends of the floor. He’s a powerful athlete with defensive versatility and a fairly well-rounded offensive skillset, which makes him a difficult matchup for all types of opponents. His combination of IQ, motor, and toughness allow him to make a constant impact without necessarily requiring a ton of touches. That being said, Thomas is a useful offensive player that can pass, shoot, and handle the ball effectively.
6’0 ’21 Brock Bowen (CC Elite)
Although he’s widely known as a lethal shooter and spot-up threat from the perimeter, Bowen showcased a lot of ability in this contest. He still hit numerous three-pointers, both off the bounce and catch, but also legitimately ran the offense and created for others at a strong rate. Bowen handled the ball well, made sharp passes, and provided great effort defensively. He would be a useful addition at the next level for a variety of different programs.
7’0 ’22 Patrick Wessler (CC Elite)
After a fairly dominant showing on night one, Wessler only continued to solidify his presence in this contest. He’s such a difficult matchup from the block, given his touch, strength, and ability to utilize his body to secure positioning. Wessler moves very well in the post, displays useful passing vision, and consistently runs the floor in transition. He’s an excellent rebounder and extremely tough to stop when going left.
6’2 ’22 Xavier McKelvy (Charlotte Royals)
It would be impossible for anyone who watched this game to be anything other than impressed with McKelvy’s all-around dominance. He’s so strong, tough, and athletic, but also consistently highlights leadership, vision, and efficient three-level scoring ability. McKelvy did it all offensively and actively mixed up his approach to keep the opposition guessing. He’s a quality defender with an understanding of how to force turnovers and apply seemingly nonstop pressure in transition. McKelvy’s stock continues to rise.
6’3 ’23 Lance Gill (Charlotte Royals)
Although there were a lot of quality contributors for the Royals, Gill offered an undeniably steady, reliable two-way presence. It’s confusing as to why more folks aren’t already putting his name in circulation, as he possesses the ability of a scholarship-level player. Gill is an efficient scorer with IQ, length, toughness, and the understanding of how to thrive with or without the ball in his hands. He produces in all areas and finds ways to make hustle plays.
6’0 ’22 Mustapha Shah (Sheed Wallace Select)
Few teams in attendance are as tough as Sheed Wallace Select, and Shah epitomizes their rugged identity. He’s an incredible on-ball defender with motor, quickness, and amazing instincts for forcing turnovers—which regularly lead to transition play. His ability to mirror opposing ball-handlers makes him an absolute menace. Shah competes for rebounds, attacks the basket well, and utilizes his body extremely well on both ends of the floor.
