2026 Nick Arnold (Carolina Riptide): When you watch Arnold operate on the court, you have to automatically think that he is an older, more experienced prospect. But when you come to find out that he is part of the 2026 class, Arnold is quite impressive and makes you excited about his future. Such a poised, polished point guard that sees the floor, makes the right reads, gets everyone involved, and is crafty in his ability to create and score.'
2023 Brandon Crawford (HYB Raps): Coming from South Carolina, Crawford is a prospect that should be getting more looks his way. The 6'7 2023 prospect was off the charts and made his presence felt all game long on both ends, whether it was finish at the rim, running the floor, making plays for himself, blocking shots, or being all over the boards. Very impressive player and one that certainly grabbed our attention.
2024 Lamont Guy Jr. (Team HOPE): No one had a stronger start to the day than 2024 Lamont Guy Jr. for Team HOPE. He went off for 30 points to start the day and looked unstoppable, showing off his high motor, how he competes on both ends, and finishing at or around the basket.' Really loved the footwork that he showed around the paint as well.
2023 McCaskill Rivers (CB Hoops): Rivers continues to be one that goes under the radar in North Carolina but all the 6'5 forward does is produce.' Really like his skill set and feel for the game, he has continued to improve and get stronger and has really expanded his game in a variety of ways.' Rivers' ability to operate inside and out will catch your eye but this is a young man that comes out every time and produces.
2023 Evan Ashemore (Anthony Morrow): Ashemore really set the tone in Game 1 on Day 2 for his team, coming out red hot and showing his range on his shot-making ability. He couldn't miss in the first half, getting to his spots, knocking down multiple threes, creating and finishing at the rim with his length, and really filling it up. Ended up with 21 points in the first game of the day to help his team secure the win.
2024 Connor Simcox (NLPB TN-NC-VA): The dual-sport athlete does the little things for his team and on Day 2, he was able to capitalize on a few scoring opportunities but he was all over the boards, something that he personally loves to do and has done so consistently. He was getting his hands on everything, and really embracing his role in the game.
2024 Braylhan Thomas (Team Charlotte 17u): Thomas continues to catch our eyes with his play and steady progression as a prospect. He continues to get bigger and stronger, as well as more assertive in creating scoring opportunities for himself. Thomas does a nice job in mixing it up with his perimeter game but also now putting it on the deck and picking his spots or getting to the basket.
2024 Jayan Walker (Team Curry): Walker is a 6'5 prospect that had a big season and has carried it into summer ball. With his blend of size, versatility, and how he can score in a variety of ways, Walker continues to make progress with his game and came out strong on Day 2. Very well-rounded game and uses his long frame and athleticism well to his advantage.
