2022 6’7 Mikhail Pocknett (BWSL Team Marsh 17u): Pocknett was nearly a double-double machine last year for Ashley HS and showed that same production on Day 3. He shows tremendous hands and strength down low in the post, moves well and is always active, and finishes well against defenders.
2022 7’0 Patrick Wessler (CC Elite 2022-2021): Wessler continues to show why he is regarded as one of the top bigs in North Carolina and he only continues to get better. What impresses us the most is his continuing development with his footwork and finishing through contact, even though defenses surround him in the paint.
2022 Tristan Harkins (Raleigh’s Finest): We first got a glimpse of Harkins last season and was impressed with his feel for the game. Today, he showcased his smooth, fluid perimeter shooting to help lead his team to a victory, knocking down five 3-pointers to finish with 19 points. Harkins is one in the 2022 class that should garner some more interest down the road.
2021 6’6 Jacob Morgan (Carolina Riptide): He started out slow but poured it on in the second half, scoring 20 of his 22 points. He continued to do it in multiple ways and just always seems to have a knack of getting open and scoring the ball. What you love about him is that he constantly is moving on the court and looking for the open areas; never stops and with his ability to score on multiple levels, it can be tough and tiresome for defenders.
2022 6’8 Daniel Sanford (Team Charlotte): Just have to say it… Love Sanford’s game and what he has been showing over the last month or so. He made several big-time moves, giving us a glimpse of his athleticism, his feel in the post, and ability to create.
2022 5’9 Camian Shell (TLBA): Shell was weaving in and around defenses today, using his speed and size to his advantage on multiple occasions. But for a guard that is 5’9, he understands how to score aggressively and on multiple levels.
