2023 Collin Tanner (Wayne Country Day): After a 25-point performance on Day 1, Tanner came back strong once again on Day 2. Not only did he rack up a double-double by halftime, but he continued to show just how effective he can be no matter where he is placed on the court. The 6’6 prospect can be a main ball-handler, run the offense, create for himself off the dribble, finish strong and through contact in the paint, and also be a force on the boards. Tanner does it all and it is why we think he is going to see an uptick in his recruitment quickly.
2023 Noah Van Bibber (Concord Academy): It was a tough day in the office but Van Bibber gave us a little view of what he can provide on the court. He has good size, can be an effective shooter from behind the arc, can create with his one-dribble pull-up, and finish strong around the basket with his athleticism. He is yet another 2023 prospect to really watch out for as there is a lot to work with his game.
2022 Shane Blakeney (Legion Collegiate): Blakeney absolutely put on a show on Day 2 in Charlotte. With this being my second viewing in the last week, Blakeney has been off the charts with his play-making ability and his offensive scoring ability. Known for his perimeter shooting early, he has really become a more complete point guard that is a big offensive weapon. Great IQ, a tremendous length that he uses to his advantage, and has a terrific balance in his game. One thing is for sure, Drexel got themselves a good one coming in.
2022 Elijah Jamison (Liberty Heights): Jamison is showing everyone that he can be a point guard on the court. He has only gotten stronger, sees the floor extremely well, and has that natural feel in running an offense. With his college-ready body, he is able to attack and finish through contact offensively. But his court vision and feel with the ball in his hands is big time and college coaches would love to have him leading the charge on the floor in the coming years.
2023 Mychael Mitchell (Northside Christian): From when we first started watching him to where he is today, Mitchell has really elevated his play. On Day 2 and with his team missing a key piece, Mitchell really stepped up in a big way. The shifty guard was able to make plays out in transition, score the ball effectively from all over, get to the basket, and really help control and lead his team to victory. Came up big late with a big jumper to help seal the deal.
2022 Karon Boyd (Cannon): Boyd just seemed to be all over the place on the court. Racking up an impressive 16 points, 19 rebounds performance, Boyd is such a workhorse on the court. He has such a knack for the ball, scores incredibly well around the basket, and finishes strong, but also is tough with his ability to get on the boards and push in transition.
