2026 Jeremiah Wiggins (Elite1): Another young prospect but one that has a mature game to go along with his early size that will certainly catch some attention. A 6’1 prospect, he plays strong down low but moves incredibly well around the floor, can guard multiple positions, and has guard-like skills to go with his game.  He finished well around the basket early on Day 1 at the Phenom Rise Showcase.

2026 Jaquan Clay (Carolina Rockets 2026): Clay is another young name that captured some eyes at the Rise Indoor facility.  Clay is a versatile, young prospect with good size (around 6’3) and showcased some early athleticism to his game. He can finish at the rim, guard multiple defenders and positions, and penetrate/create his own scoring opportunity.  A young prospect to put on your watch list.

2022 Kendrell Brooks (Brothers Basketball): Brooks’ name has popped up quite a few times this summer and showed up again to start Day 1 at the Rise Showcase.  He is a long and lengthy type prospect that is an effective scorer and knows how to finish at and around the rim.  He consistently stayed aggressive, getting into the lane to score and making plays.  Came up big in the second half for his team and eventually sealed the win with the game-winning tip-in.

2023 Jaydin Spillman (Winston 76ers): Spillman was one of the bigs coming into the event that should have had everyone’s attention and he made it easy to see why.  You simply just don’t see big men with the skillset he has every day.  His ability to impact the court in so many ways, whether it is rebounding, blocking shots, running the floor, starting the break, his terrific hands and feel with the basketball, and his ability to score inside and out is why schools are looking more his way.  He showed it all on Day 1.

2024 Kaleik Cameron Flippen (Triad Hornets): Really liked this young guard and the composure he plays with on the court.  Whether it was on the offensive or defensive end, Flippen made for himself and for others.  Loved how he attacked the defense off the dribble, playing strong through contact, getting into the lane, and either finishing around the basket strong, getting to the line, or finding his teammates for open shots. Played with a ton of poise on the court.

2023 Collin Tanner (All Carolina): Tanner is one that should only continue to see his stock rise and he showed why at the Phenom Rise Showcase.  The wing prospect plays with a terrific I, is strong and understands how to operate inside and out, and can be effective in an array of ways.  Tanner continues to put up impressive numbers and you love how he plays at his own pace and is under control, but effective.

2026 Jonathan Ross (Team WHITE): The young man may have had the performance of the day and stepped up big when his team needed him the most.  He simply couldn’t be stopped, really finding it easy at times to get to the lane, create for himself, and finish some tough buckets.  In a tie game at 72, he was the one that stepped up one more time, showing his shifty moves and ability to get by defenders and finish tough, on his way to 33 points.
