2027 Lenise Joseph (North Meck): There is so much to like about this young freshman, as she makes an immediate impact on both ends of the court.  Offensively, she is a force down in the paint, but displays tremendous feel and touch in the paint but can also step out. But I think the most impressive thing about her game is her impact defensively and her ability to block/alter shots.  Big time player coming through North Carolina.

2025 Amya Leathers (Hickory Ridge): I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen from the junior as of late. She continues to be an effective scoring option, creating and getting downhill, understanding how to finish strong and over defenders. But it is her overall impact in a variety of ways that allows her to be productive on the court.

2025 Jordan Lowery (WS Christian): Lowery is a high-IQ point guard who plays under control and at his own pace. He reads and sees the floor, having a natural feel in being the leader and game-manager for his team. He creates well and gets by defenders, as well as being able to create space for his jumper. Lowery brings a nice blend of scoring and setting up other teammates.

2025 Daniel Guandolo (Charlotte Christian): Guandolo was the consistent presence for his team on Day 1, being active, displaying the ability to create scoring opportunities for himself, scoring inside and out, as well as being active in a variety of other ways. He led all scorers in Game 2 with 21 points.

2025 Chris Rivens (Covenant Day): I was really impressed with what I saw from Rivens on Day 1. He was active, impacted the game in a variety of ways, and made smart decisions on the court. Whether he was making plays with or without the ball, he was an effective scorer but also competed on the boards, and made good reads in finding his teammates.

2025 KJ Younger (Weddington): Though he faced early foul trouble to start the game, Younger continued to excel and showcase that he is a breakout-type player this season. So strong and physical, attacks and bullies through defenders, finishes strong at the rim, and is physical on the boards. Have been really impressed with his game this year.

2024 Kyrell Shaw (Northside Christian): Shaw continues to be an unsigned senior that should get looks and would be a great steal for a program. A long, bouncy, athletic prospect that plays with a ton of confidence and consistently shows that can knock down shots but also has good body control in finishing at the rim. Filled it up with 28 points and mixed it up well.

2025 Trent Steinour (Lake Norman): Steinour was an absolute dominant down low in the paint and on the boards. Racking up 30pst and 17 rebounds, Steinour was a force in attacking the paint, finishing strong at the rim, and showing a blend of strength and skill as a big. He simply was everywhere on the court and racked up the boards in this game.

2024 Kameron Taylor (Carmel Christian): Taylor continues to flourish as one of the top unsigned seniors possibly in the region, and he showed why in this game. Flying high, with tremendous body control, finishing over defenders, but also attacking and getting to the line, Taylor has been a walking double-double at Phenom Hoops events and did so once again.

2024 Joshua Dalton (Central Cabarrus): Dalton may have had his best game for Central Cabarrus, being a force at the rim, finding the open spots and always being ready as his teammates set him up. He played hard and competed on both sides, and shined as a finisher at the rim with athleticism.

2026 Markus Kerr (Chambers): This young man is just starting his story as a player, as he checks off a lot boxes early on but also has so much potential left in his game. When it all comes together and he understands what he could be, watch out. But today, he showed his ability to knock down shots from a variety of levels with great size. Effective prospect that just oozes with talent and potential.

2025 Isaiah Denis (Davidson Day): Denis was putting on a show on Day 1 with 28 points and really showing his impact as an athletic guard that finds success in several areas of the court. He continues to flourish out in transition and attacking the rim, finishing strong but also mixing it up to knock down shots from multiple levels.

2024 Gabriel Mabor (Gaston Christian): Mabor continues to flourish with his size and physicality on the court. He is such a dominant force down in the paint and what sets him apart is his mentality and determination to of after every ball on the boards and finish over defenders and through contact.

2027 King Gibson (TBS): Gibson is just starting his story but you can see the flashes he has in his game that should make him special. One can see his ability to create and get downhill, displaying tremendous bounce, body control, and ability to finish at the rim. But you also have to love his court vision and awareness in finding his teammates.

2025 James Carswell (Cox Mill): Carswell was productive and active throughout the game for his team, as he led the charge offensively. Whether it was finding success from the perimeter or using his size to finish at the basket, he brought a good motor and was active all throughout the game.
