2027 Eian Bailey (Team EAT): Bailey had an excellent start to the day for Team Eat, as he was an absolute force in leading the charge. When you walk about his game, you can help but see how physical he can be and the motor that he plays with. Time after time, he was able to outwork his opponents down around the basket, finishing well, or being an effective presence on the boards. He is a name to watch out for in the Mooresville area.
2027 Noni Jones (NC Rise): Jones is a prospect who checks a lot of early boxes with his game; he has size, moves well, understands how to operate around the basket, and displays good athleticism. Already standing around 6’4, it will be interesting to see how much more he grows and how he develops at his size. But he was really able to assert himself to start the day on Day 2.
2027 Will Russell (Team Curry): Russell is a 6’5 long forward that has a fluid game already. What you have to like about his game and feel is how well he moves and runs the court. Time after time, he was able to run the floor and finish in transition, but also displayed excellent early footwork around the basket to find ways to score.
2027 Jayden Griffin (Team Curry): Griffin is another Team Curry prospect that earned my eyes. Why? What I really liked is how electric he can be in the open floor. Griffin possesses terrific speed and change of direction, and used that to his advantage to create and get by defenders, penetrate and get into the paint, and find ways to score or set up his teammates.
2028 Corbin Woodard (Carolina Heights): Woodward was a monster to begin Day 2 for his team. Every time we watched him, he was making his presence felt around the basket. Whether it was attacking and creating extra possessions on the boards or finishing strong through defenders, Woodward simply couldn’t be stopped as he went for 23 points in Game 1 of the day.
2025 Jay Powell (NLPB): Powell quickly grabbed the attention of our scouts with his shot-making ability. Powell really showcased his ability to be a knockdown shooter with tremendous range, as he was able to get to his spots, step in and knock down multiple threes with a fluid/smooth release and with a ton of confidence. One of the better shooters I saw early on in the day.
2026 Cole Cloer (CP3): What else can be said about Cloer… the young man is something special and certainly gets you excited about the future with his game. He should be a prospect that so many programs will be all over, as he just has a tremendous understanding and feel for the game. Versatile, great size can fill it up from all three levels and has so much more potential in his game.
2026 Ian Bailey (Team Vision): Bailey is a prospect that goes a bit under the radar in the Class of 2026, but he is one that needs to be talked about more. He had a great freshman campaign, as he led the charge for his school and he did so once again. Really like his early feel for the game and his ability to see and create. Was able to score in a variety of ways with nice touch.
