2024 Chris Uwayo (Panther Creek): Uwayo did a great job in helping lead the charge once again for his team. He was able to really showcase his feel in leading the offense, creating and pushing up the court, facilitating to his teammates, but also being a consistent scoring threat, especially with his ability to penetrate and get to the line. Finished with 19 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds.

2023 Eli Hawk (First Flight): Though the Dobie brothers did what they usually do, I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen over the last month from the senior big man.  He continues to be a very strong presence down low in the paint, playing with a great motor and physicality; one can see that he loves to compete on the court. He has really become a consistent paint presence, finishing through contact, and strong on the boards for his team.

2023 D’dric Rogers (Southern Durham): 2025 Jackson Keith did what he has shown plenty of times, but I believe it was the play of Rogers that really elevated this team’s energy on Day 2 to secure the win. Rogers was strong with the ball in his hands, creating and reading the floor, pushing well in transition, but also being able to penetrate and finish well around the basket. His ability to add another weapon on the court was essential.

2023 Collin Kuhl (Holly Springs): Hard to not have him on the list as a standout, especially with what he has shown and proven in the last two days. Kuhl just seems to be playing at another level and freer on the court; showing more of his footwork and skillset around the basket, displaying patience in the post, and his athleticism at his size. Another strong performance, as he has been a stock riser at this event.

2024 Rakease Passmore (Combine Academy): Rakease continues to show why he is such a high target for so many schools; he continues to elevate his game and understand what it takes to play at the highest of levels. Passmore can be effective from so many levels, whether creating and getting into the paint, playing off the ball and knocking down shots, or being a presence on either end and bringing a ton of energy. He just isn’t a highlight-reel type player; he is much more than that overall.

2024 Trentyn Flowers (Combine): Flowers gave the crowd a glimpse of just how tough he can be as a matchup with his 6’9 frame, his ability to be a three-level scorer, and also fill up the stat sheet. Flowers played well in getting out in transition and finishing at the rim, but also stepping out with a confident release. He can be used is so many areas on the floor and at his size, it can be hard to stop.

2024 Nik Edwards (Greenfield): Though it was a tough game overall for the team, you have to give credit to how hard Edwards played on the court. He never backed down against his competition, looked to stay aggressive and attack, and was able to find ways to score in a variety of ways. Really showed his competitive nature on Day 2 for his team.
