2024 Rakease Passmore (NLPB):
With college coaches coming to watch, Passmore put on a show and gave them everything you would want in a young player. With the blend of athleticism, break down defenders, finish through contact or around/over defenders, step out and knock down shots, and be an impact defensively with blocking shots, Passmore showed it all and why he is looking to be one of the top players in his class.
2022 Shane Blakeney (Upward Stars):
Blakeney has seen an uptick in his recruitment and you can see why. Over time, he has put on more muscle and gotten stronger with his game as well as physically. He continues to show a nice feel and comfort in operating as a point guard, while also continuing to be an offensive threat from the perimeter. His understanding and feel in controlling the game have improved and is a big reason why more schools are getting involved.
2024 Jamal Brown (1 on 1 Elite):
Brown is one that many may know but boy, if you don’t know him yet, you should start learning his name. Going to be a part of the future at Word of God, Brown brings some of the best athleticism we have seen on the floor this weekend, exploding at the rim and slamming it down with power. He also uses that athleticism on the defensive end, showing a tremendous ability in blocking shots and being disruptive. Brown is going to be a big name to learn more in the class of 2024, which is already loaded.
2023 Nyrill Stradford (Team 803):
Stradford had a strong showing, as he brings a physical frame to the floor and one that was active. He finished well but also knocked down shots from the perimeter. In a tough battle, Stradford really stepped up his game offensively and played with a physical mindset on the floor.
