6’0 ’23 TJ Cave (Winston 76ers)

The Winston 76ers simply understand how to outwork opponents, and Cave is a massive part of their overall identity. He’s a heady guard prospect with athleticism, defensive prowess, and a strong, sturdy frame. Cave’s combination of quickness and physicality allows him to reliably defend opposing ball-handlers at the point of attack. He’s also a smart passer and solid decision-maker as a primary creator. 

6’7 ’23 Kahlif Barnes (Piedmont Classical)

Arguably no team in attendance is as balanced as Piedmont Classical, and Barnes’ low-maintenance identity only further solidifies this notion. He’s a strong, mobile, explosive forward prospect with an incredible rebounding sense and overall nose for the ball. Barnes plays with a high motor on both ends of the floor, and does a nice job of setting the tone as a defender and rebounder. He can finish through contact or above the rim and runs the floor well in transition. 

6’7 ’23 Mayar Wol (Moravian Prep)

There are a lot of new additions to this Moravian Prep roster, but arguably none as impressive as Wol. He’s a long, wiry forward prospect with an excellent combination of size, skill, and athleticism. Wol shoots the ball at an elite level from the perimeter, but also attacks closeouts and makes plays as needed. He passes the ball very well, especially for his size, and can overwhelm opponents as a creator or spot-up threat. Also stands out as a useful rebounder. 

6’5 ’22 Corbin Pack (Flight 22)

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Pack should steadily trend upward after his relocation to North Carolina. He’s polished, skilled, and possesses excellent offensive versatility, which allows him to apply scoring pressure in a wide variety of ways. Pack is a lethal spot-up threat from midrange and beyond the arc, but also displays craftiness and the ability to create for himself or others off the bounce. He utilizes his body effectively to make an impact as a defender and rebounder around the basket, but also contains his assignment well along the perimeter. 

5’11 ’25 Jonah Drye (Crown Academy)

After watching him closely for the last few years, it seems like Drye is beginning to take the next step in his overall progression. Not only is he standing out as a leader for Crown Academy, but he’s also clearly added a lot to his overall identity. Drye has maintained his elite shooting ability while making strides as a passer, defender, and overall creator. He’s not necessarily quick, but smart enough to get by opponents and consistently make plays. 

6’7 ’22 Justin Banks (Moravian Prep)

Similar to other various new additions to the team, Banks should be an extremely valuable piece for Moravian Prep this season. He’s a long, strong, high-motor forward prospect with interior toughness and the ability to make an impact without requiring the ball in his hands. Banks is a terrific finisher, both above the rim and through contact, and frequently looks to make hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He alters shots and does a nice job of controlling the glass.

6’5 ’25 Tobius Baker (Piedmont Classical)

Although their entire roster is quite young, it’s easy to see the appeal with someone like Baker. He’s a long, wiry forward prospect with a high motor and willingness to do dirty work whenever necessary. Baker is a capable finisher and midrange shooter, but also regularly scores through making hustle plays and running the floor. He utilizes his length well and should only continue to improve going forward. 

6’3 ’22 Jonathan Donaldson (Hamilton Hall)

Despite being somewhat of an up-and-down day as a team for Hamilton Hall, Donaldson consistently stood out among their top performers. He’s long, quick, and athletic, which allows him to touch the paint at a high volume and set up others with relative ease. Donaldson is a reliable perimeter shooter, crafty playmaker off the bounce, and rugged defender against opposing guards. He has made smart decisions whilst setting the tone as a leader. 

5’9 ’22 Keyon Weir (Believe Prep)

While there were a lot of notable contributors for Believe Prep, but arguably none as impressive as Weir. He’s an undersized floor general, but undeniably tough and intelligent. Weir is quick, athletic, and plays with nonstop energy on both ends of the floor. His combination of IQ, vision, and ball-handling allows him to seamlessly control the action. He had no issue causing problems for the opposition.
