2026 Carter Bullock (NC GBB Varsity): Only a freshman, Bullock played with a lot of poise and did a great job today getting to his spots. He finished with 16 points and hit multiple threes from a variety of areas of the court. Like his understanding, can create off the bounce, and has good size for his age.
2023 Shaedon Simpson (Combine PG): It was great to watch Simpson on the court again, and he has only continued to impress and improve as a player. Smooth, confident release from outside. But also, is able to create and make things happen off the bounce. Holds a few offers but should be getting more looks. One of the clear leaders for the team.
2023 Joshua Stevenson (Bull City PG): Stevenson really impressed today with his energy on both sides of the ball. He was active and played with a great motor defensively; super competitive. But also explosive and quick getting downhill and to the basket, but also making strong plays off the bounce. Put on a show to lead his team today with 27 points.
2023 Chris Greene (Greater Destiny Prep): Greene is a new name personally for me, but there was something that I just liked about his game. Absolutely loved his presence on both sides, especially on the boards and blocking shots with his wingspan. Still a raw prospect but really played hard and made his presence felt in other ways.
2024 Juwann Argant (Lab U): Argant was one of my favorite players on Day 1. A 6’3 point guard, he made some terrific passes to set up his teammates early but started to put on a clinic offensively with his ability to create, get to the basket, knock down shots from multiple levels, and use his size well. Think he should be one on more radars.
2024 Richard Goods (Piedmont Classical): Goods continues to be a big man that intrigues me each time I see him. Strong, fluid big man that continues to add more to his game, is incredibly physical down in the paint and has the ability to stretch the court with his outside shot. Honestly think he is a player more schools could use in the 2024 class.
2023 Moses Tufts (Wayne Prep): It had been some time since seeing Tufts, but it was great to get a reminder. Strong, physical guard that plays at a nice pace, reads the floor, and sets up for his shot, but also uses his frame to his advantage to attack the defense and impact the game on the boards.
2023 Jajuan Nicholls (NC GBB): I’m a big fan of the improvement that Nicholls has made over the last year. Has gotten stronger, is more physical and assertive offensively, and really can be a tremendous presence both offensively and defensively. His stock continues to rise and college coaches need to look his way.
2024 Nalijah Smith (Franklin Prep): The 6’6 junior was a physical prospect for his team, playing hard and relentlessly, being physical on the boards and creating second-chance opportunities, and being able to finish through contact and tough shots around the basket. Played really hard on Day 1.
2023 Abrahm Driver (Bull City National): It had been a little while since seeing Driver on the court, but we heard a lot about him. Driver runs and moves really well without the ball, creating opportunities for himself and simply outworking/ being quicker on the court. Driver, a 6’7 forward, has nice touch and footwork on both sides of the court.
