2021 Peyton Gerald (Ace Elite) ' You have to like what a 6'8 mobile and athletic forward can bring to the table.  With Gerald he brings that and more.  He has a nice feel down in the post and uses his length well, but also can create for himself and does a tremendous job in getting at the rim and on the boards. Strong first day for this unsigned senior.

2022 Reggie Bass (Team Teague): Already a high-major commit, you can easily see why he was a target for so many. But Illinois was the one for him and now the 6'5 guard brings the ability to create for others, as he has that ball on a string, but also is wired to score the ball on all levels.  It is simply tough for guards to slow down his game at his size.

2022 AJ Cook (CC Elite): He needs to be and should be regarded as one of the best shooters in the state and if you watched his game on Day 1, you would see why.  This small guard simply lights it up from deep, showing no lack of confidence and just needs an inch of space to let it go' and you think it is going in every time.

2022 Jeremy Dixon (Team EAT 2022): Dixon is now getting a chance and taking advantage of the opportunities in front of him, giving everyone a glimpse of how he can operate, get to the rack when he wants, and embraces contact well.  Also like the energy that he brings on the defensive end as well, sitting down in a stance and showing off his athleticism in blocking shots or throwing it down on the other end.

2022 Josh Williams (Charlotte Dragons Bates): Williams was a consistent threat on the court for his team, especially with his quickness in the open floor and getting out in transition.  But he also did a tremendous job in creating for himself and keeping defenders guessing, as he picked his time to attack and get to the rim. Tough guard for his size.

2021 Justice Asante (EA Prep Adidas 17u): Asante grabbed the attention quickly with his defensive presence on the floor. Time after time, he created havoc in blocking shots or creating wall against his opponents, making it difficult to score around the rim. Which is saying something for Asante's 6'6 frame.

2022 Evan Presnell (Carolina Riptide): Presnell led the charge on Day 1 for the Riptide, showing his range and knocking down multiple three's in route to the win.  He shows confidence and a fluid shooting stroke from outside. Played well early on.

2021 Graham Calton (Team Griggs): Calton may have stole the show on Day 1 with his performance, knocking down 10 3-pointers and showing his range over and over and over.  Calton though is a 6'5 prospect that can score in multiple ways with his body and footwork but he was feeling it from deep and simply couldn't miss.

2023 Jaydin Spillman-Martin (PSB Robinson): Martin continues to be a young and developing big to watch in the state of North Carolina. One can see he is putting in the work to get stronger and develop his overall feel and he contines to produce around the rim and finish well.
