6’7 ’24 Jerquarius Stainback (Midstate Magic)
There have been a lot of intriguing prospects to come through this year’s Summer Havoc, but Stainback is basically in a league of his own. At 6-foot-7 with incredible length and an enticing level of skill, it’s easy to see the appeal. Stainback handles the ball very well for his size, makes solid passes, and utilizes his length to disrupt opponents as a shot-altering presence. He’s able to score around the basket, space the floor, operate in screen actions, or create his own shot off the bounce. Stainback is already quite useful, but he’s the type of player who will only get better over time.
6’3 ’24 Barry Hairston (The Town)
There’s been a healthy amount of buzz surrounding The Town, which certainly includes Hairston and everything he brings to the table. He operates as their primary ball-handler and comfortably dictates the action as a balanced floor general. Hairston displays a crafty nature, both as a creator and finisher, and looks to make the right play with the ball in his hands. He’s a useful rebounder for his size and overall defender at the point of attack. It goes without saying, but Hairston definitely possesses college-level ability.
6’7 ’24 Graham Williams (Hoop Dreams Academy)
Although there are a variety of appealing college prospects on this roster, Williams is someone who has clearly boosted his stock over the last few days. He’s a long, wiry, mobile big man with a high motor and steady presence on both ends of the floor. Williams finishes well around the basket and runs the floor effectively in transition. He’s a solid rebounder and perimeter shooter with toughness and interior instincts. Expect Williams to receive attention from college coaches going forward.
6’2 ’24 Amare Hamilton (Brantford Hawks)
Between the team success and his individual production, there’s certainly a lot to like about Hamilton. He’s a long, wiry guard prospect with a well-rounded offensive game and the ability to play with or without the ball in his hands. Hamilton displays great pace, attacks the basket with consistency, and makes smart decisions. He shoots the ball at a high clip and finishes through contact as a finisher. Hamilton is clearly a next-level player.
6’8 ’24 Cooper Kawolski (Charleston Raptors)
There’s been a ton of notable performers in attendance, but Kawolski has arguably been as impressive as anyone. He’s a long, wiry, skilled forward/post prospect with an excellent blend of touch, perimeter shooting, and timing as a defender/rebounder. Kawolski moves well for his size, both when recovering and running the floor in transition, and finishes with both hands around the basket. Kawolski also plays well through contact on both ends of the floor. Based on his current ability and overall trajectory, Division I coaches would be wise to get involved sooner than later.
6’8 ’24 Alex Atkinson (Upward Stars Columbia)
Given everything he’s done over the last few days, it’s genuinely shocking that Atkinson doesn’t hold more offers. He’s a long, fluid, skilled forward with the ability to impact the game in a variety of different ways. Atkinson is a useful post-up option with touch, vision, and footwork. However, he’s arguably even better when facing up and showcasing his perimeter jumper or ability to attack off the bounce. Atkinson definitely deserves more attention.
6’3 ’24 Peter Moye (BSA Supreme)
Although BSA Supreme is incredibly balanced as a collective, it’s impossible to ignore everything Moye brings to the table. Despite being somewhat unassuming at first glance, he’s a very productive, well-rounded player who affects all facets of the game. Moye is a reliable passer, rebounder, and three-level scorer with nice defensive instincts. He plays bigger than his listed height and makes winning plays on both ends of the floor.
6’5 ’25 Jackson Powers (NC Spartans Pittman)
Given his motor, toughness, and quality amount of skill, it’s easy to see what makes Powers such a useful player. He plays with nonstop energy, especially on the glass, and does a nice job of anchoring the paint on both ends of the floor. Powers finishes well, spaces the floor, and understands when to defer to others. He’s an unselfish, blue-collar guy with a willingness to do anything to put his team in a winning position. Powers runs the floor hard in transition and looks to outwork his assignment however possible on defense.
