2022 5’8 Jesse Muncy (Tolsia): He is a young guard that people need to start keeping an eye on. Muncy may be undersized but he scored the ball really well, showing he has an understanding of the game and a solid feel. Muncy also showed an underrated court vision on the floor as well.
2021 5’8 Matt Spaulding/ Andy Spaulding (Beth Haven Christian): The duo brothers showed their range on multiple occasions in the victory. Even though they stand at 5’8, they showed that they have a little craft to their game to go along with their quick triggers.
2022 Caleb Maye (Tug Valley): Maye showed a high IQ on the floor, playing with a ton of confidence and just getting an overall feel for what is happening on the court. He scored from deep as well as initiate the offense, attacking the rim and finding his teammates as well.
2021 6’1 Ian Reed (Tug Valley): What really stood out about his game was his ability to create for others. Time and time again, he attacked the paint and dished it to his teammates, setting them up for easy buckets around the rim. He also showed his perimeter game from deep as well.
2022 6’5 Austin Ball (May HS): The young, lengthy prospect showed some flashes of tough and mobility on the floor. He sported good mobility on the floor, running the floor in transition but also showing nice touch down around the paint. He is still developing but displayed a good skillset.
2021 7’0 Charles Bediako (ISA Osborne): What don’t you like about someone with his size, his mobility, and his impact on the game all over the floor. He has a tremendous wingspan and battled through contact down in the post but he also showcased his mobility and versatility as well. Bediako’s ability to step out and be an impact from the perimeter as well as showcase his power was impressive.
2022 6’0 Jaden Clayton (ISA Osborne): Still a young point guard, you just have to like how poise he is on the floor. Clayton’s confidence as a true ball handler, initiating the offense in the half court or push the tempo is big time. He plays with such a great feel and IQ as well, something that was impressive as a sophomore.
2020 6’3 Lavric Mangala (Beckley Prep): Mangala was tremendous with his pull-up jumper, knocking down multiple shots from the baseline and finishing strong around the basket. He also brought tremendous energy on the defensive end, showing that he can be an effective two-way player.
2020 6’1 Fahmir Ali (Beckley Prep): Ali was tremendous and can certainly see why Radford liked him. He may not be a speedster but his pace was tremendous. At times, he can lull a defender asleep and quickly take advantage of the opportunities, scoring on all three levels. Ali also displayed tremendous vision on the floor, finding his teammates in the right spots to score. He was tough all game long.
