6’4 ’24 Desmond Kent (Crossover Elite)

Although there were numerous contributors for Crossover Elite, Kent really shined as a leader on both ends of the floor. He’s long, mobile, and fairly skilled, but truly just beginning to harness his long-term upside. Kent is a steady rebounder, quality finisher, reliable shot-altering presence who runs the floor well and can knock down jumpers at a respectable clip. He’s steadily progressing, and should emerge as a major x-factor for Central Cabarrus this season. 

6’2 ’23 Jahreece Lynch (NC Spartans)

The Spartans concluded their summer season with a highly competitive matchup, and Lynch was arguably the main difference-maker in their winning effort. He’s a strong, physical, athletic wing prospect who single-handedly altered the course of this game through his sheer motor and defensive prowess. Lynch stepped up in a major way defensively, but also scored, rebounded, and consistently made hustle plays. 

6’3 ’23 Antonio Perkins (DCT Elite)

Though other players on this roster will probably receive more attention, Perkins definitely deserves recognition for his steady, reliable production. He’s a natural glue-guy who always does a little bit of everything without needing to force the action. Perkins is a quality shooter, rebounder, and off-ball presence who plays with a high motor on both ends of the floor. He’s great at filling in the gaps, regardless of setting. 

6’4 ’25 Trajan Thompson (Underrated Athletes)

There are a lot of talented prospects in the building, and Thompson is arguably trending upward as much as anyone. He’s a long, wiry, smart wing prospect with an all-around skillset and the ability to apply constant offensive pressure from all levels. Thompson operated as the main creator for this group, and absolutely dominated. He attacked the basket, hit pull-ups, and converted from beyond the arc while also setting up others at a high volume. Thompson has the tools to be a special prospect. 

6’0 ’24 Grant Hamilton (CC Elite)

It goes without saying at this point, but Hamilton is an elite shooter—especially from beyond the arc. However, he’s also a pretty well-rounded player with vision, ball skills, and useful defensive instincts. Hamilton can excel with or without the ball in his hands, which is a massive part of what makes him so incredibly valuable. He’s poised to have an incredibly productive upcoming season.
