2026 Michael Phillips (Grace Christian):
The 6í5 prospect continues to make strong strides with his game, and he should garner more attention from college coaches. Along with two senior guards leading the charge, Phillips provides an intriguing game with his shot-making ability from outside, along with his athleticism in finishing at the rim as well as impacting the game defensively. Another opportunity to shine on a big stage.
2026 Ian Bailey (Asheville Christian):
Bailey leads the charge along with his brother 2024 Brendan Bailey for Asheville Christian, as Ian is a high IQ guard that has good size, sees the floor well, gets others involved and knows how to run the show, but also creates and scores consistently.† Bailey is one that should garner more attention and this could be the event to do just that.
2026 Bradley Floyd (Kings Mountain):
Floyd is a very intriguing prospect with his size and two-way presence on the court.† He is one of the clear leaders for Kings Mountain, and he should have the attention of D1 coaches.† His blend of skill set, athleticism, size, potential, and two-way presence should allow him to flourish and be must-see this weekend.
2025 Amore Connelly (Freedom):
Love nothing more than the high-flyer in front of his home crowd, as he looks to put on a show in a big way to end the day. Connelly can fill it up and score from a variety of levels, but is an immediate highlight-film type guy with his elite athleticism and bounce. With what should be a ruckus home crowd, he has a chance to put on a SHOW.
2025 Eli Ellis (Moravian Prep):
Everyone knows about the South Carolina commit, but when we just witnessed his 44-point showing at OTE and backed it up with another 30-point showing, we canít wait to see what this young man can do on the big stage once again. Instant offense, creator, and elite scorer that should have everyone in the crowd watching, Ellis and Moravian Prep look to bring the show to Morganton.
2024 Kameron Taylor (Carmel Christian):
One of the best-unsigned seniors in the state of North Carolina and one that has been putting on a show in averaging a double-double, Taylor has been putting up big numbers. High flyer, tremendous length, impact scorer at the rim or from outside, and relentless on the boards, Taylor will be must-see TV in an intense matchup vs. Moravian Prep.
