2023 Cam Oates (Garner Road):
Now part of the 2023 class, Oates is an intriguing guard to keep tabs on with how he plays and how his game is maturing offensively. He still brings a toughness to the floor and is scrappy on both ends. But Oates is showing that he can really step up and be a consistent offensive threat from all areas. On Day 3, his perimeter game was flowing, knocking down multiple threes, while playing and getting the offense going overall.
2022 Joyful Hawkins (North Florida Elite):
Hawkins has been one of the best forwards at the event and has done so consistently. There aren’t too many bigs that are as fluid as he is on the floor and he took advantage of it time after time. Power, agility, running the floor, and his quickness at 6’9 are all impressive and overpowering at times for opponents. Hawkins finished extremely well all around the rim and was extremely active on both sides of the court.
2025 Jonah Lawrence (Team EAT 2025 National)
Lawrence looks to be ready to really show out as a young prospect and is ready to make a name for himself in North Carolina. The 6’1 guard is a tremendous scorer on the floor and does so with ease at times at all levels. He plays with crafty handles, a confident shooting motion, and has developed into a spot-up shooter to becoming a well-rounded scorer.
2023 Ryan Steger (VA Havoc):
Steger captured some eyes and impressed early on Day 3 at the Coach Rick’s TOC. The sharp-shooter carried the load for his team with his outside shooting, knocking down seven three-pointers, where he wanted to. Steger was certainly feeling it early on, as the confident shooter really displayed his range and ability to get open for his shot.
2024 Paul McNeil (Garner Road):
Already a known name and one that seems to be destined to be one of the top players in his class, with his play on Day 3, one can feel incredibly confident in saying that. McNeil certainly passes the eye test and then shows you more with his overall game. Whether it is his perimeter game, his body control and strong willingness to finish, and his ability to do the little things outside of scoring, McNeil has everything you like and is going to be a hot target for many schools.
