2024 6’5 Tyrique Wilkins (WV Generals 15u) 

Wilkins is a big body who plays to his size around the rim. He’s really skilled at running in transition and makes the defense pay for not sprinting back. He knows how to use his athleticism and length to grab boards on both ends of the court and block shots efficiently on the defensive end. 

2024 5’8 Jayden Clark (WV Generals 15u)

Clark is a smaller guy but uses it to his advantage on the court. He’s got a quick first step and knows how to finish around the rim. He shows off a nice jumper from long range as well. I really like his ability to control the pace and get his team under control. 

2023 6’6 Dylan Purnell (Garner Road Bulldogs 16u) 

This guy knows how to flat out score. He finds himself in really good positions to grab boards and finish through contact. He’s a really skilled shooter and knows how to find his shot coming off the bounce too. 

2023 6’0 Tyree Smith (Chattanooga Elite Grey 16u) 

Smith came out and scored on all three levels. He showed off his long ball on multiple occasions. He ended the first half with a three to beat the buzzer, and then came out and knocked one down to start the second half. He showed his ability to finish around the rim in crafty ways and through contact during the game as well.
