2022 6’6 Caleb Owens (Next Level Elite 16u): Owens grabbed my attention quickly in this game. We are talking about a 6’6 prospect that has a comfortable feel on both ends at multiple spots. He does a lot of the dirty work and works incredibly hard on both ends. Owens was able to get out in space, find openings, and use his strength well around the rim. Aggressive nature.
2022 6’1 Drew Bean (Upward Stars 704): Bean just absolutely hustles all over the court. A 6’1 prospect, he does a great job staying aggressive on the offensive end, constantly working to get open, and was effective with the shot fakes. Created contact when attacking the paint.
2022 6’4 Cyrus Ellison (Upward Stars Pee Dee): Ellison had a strong showing early on Day 1. He is a 6’4 wing prospect that brings athleticism and a motor to the table. In his first game, he was constantly on the boards and finishing at the rim and continued to make those same plays in the second game as well.
2022 6’5 Dyterious Williams (Next Level Elite): He is an absolute load down low in the paint. The big man can absolutely carve out space in the paint, scoring through defenders and getting to the line. He also is quite nimble on the floor, showing some handles to his game.
2022 6’5 Bakari Johnson (Tennessee Tigers): Johnson is still young for his age but he is one to really keep an eye on in the state of Tennessee. He rebounds well, has a tremendous motor, and scored effectively inside and around the paint. Think he is going to be one schools start jumping on.
