2023 Hasanur Friedman (G5 Elite): Friedman is a new name to the scene for us but the guard showed tremendous ability to create for himself off the dribble. He makes incredibly decisive moves, quick reaction, and gets defenders off-balance with his crossover while also finishing around the basket. Strong play from this young man early on Day 2.
2021 Cedric Patterson (Team United): Patterson has been aggressive all morning long for his team, using his speed tat he has shown and penetrating the lane and getting to the rack, whether it was finishing or getting to the line. Assertive scorer on Day 2.
2022 JP Haggarty (PSB Larkin): In game 2 of the day for PSB, it was Haggarty that stepped up his game to help lead the charge. Haggarty gave us a glimpse of his overall feel and just what he is capable of with his outside shot, getting to his spots and knocking them down but also driving by defenders and finishing strong. Good performance in Game 2 for the young man.
2022 Jeremy Dixon (Team EAT): Dixon is one of those players that should see an uptick in their recruitment with his blend of size, physicality, scoring power, and ability to impact the floor in an array of ways. He gets after it on the boards and shows his explosive ability to attack offensively. But he does it all within the offense and doesn’t force much.
2023 Isaiah Tate (Upward Stars 2023): Tate had a strong game to start Day 2, racking up 27 points on their way to a win. Tate shows a nice feel for the game in the open floor, displaying nice quick handles to get around his defenders, seeing the floor in transition, and going north and south to attack the basket. Did so consistently all game long.
2023 Eli Rector (Charlotte Dragons Collins): Rector captured some eyes early on in his Day 2, showing his range and how dangerous he can be from beyond the arc. He finished with five three-pointers, shooting the ball with extreme confidence throughout.
2022 Julian Phillips (Upward Stars 2022): Phillips made our standout list last night but he was unstoppable on the court early on Day 2. There wasn’t anyone that could match up with his athleticism, finishing at the rim and showing his consistent threat of scoring on all levels of the floor, something he has really improved in over the last year. He looks to be a man on a mission and is showing why he is one of the top prospects in the country.
2022 Evan Smith (ACE Elite): Smith is such a high IQ, smooth operating guard that plays with an unselfish feel but has that takeover mentality that allows him to go get a bucket when he needs. He finds a way to get the ball on the rim in transition and finishes well but also shows off a deadly pull-up game.
