2023 Joseph Bachman (Garner Road Davis 16u): Bachman quickly caught our eyes with his activity level on both ends. Always seems to be moving, running the floor in transition, and makes the smart/right play on the court. Really liked his quick decision making down low, finishing well around the rim.
2023 Jordan Durham (Garner Road Davis 16u): Durham continues to progress in his development as a player. He shows that he can not only initiate the offense as well as push out in transition, but he showed that he can be a smooth scorer with his jumper. As he continues to grow and get stronger, he is only going to become one that more college coaches will want to watch.
2023 Zion Wright (Carolina Pressure 16u): Wright is still a little raw with his overall game but you see the flashes that capture your eyes. Wright is listed at 6’3 but plays much longer than his listing. He brings nice athleticism, good motor, and makes plays on both the offensive and defensive end, especially with active hands and long wingspan.
2023 Jaylen Golston (Carolina Pressure 16u): You have to love a player that just doesn’t give up and plays hard on the court. That is what Golston showed on Day 1. Active and embraced contact, got to the line, and finished some tough baskets.
2023 Will Otto (Garner Road Davis 16u): Otto has been a name we have known for some time now and he continues to develop his overall feel for the game. Has a great IQ early on and an even smoother jumper as well. He really came alive in the second half, scoring on multiple levels on the court.
2022 Isaih Williams (Upward Stars Columbia): This is a young man that has good size at 6’6, can be effective in multiple areas, and competes on the floor. Always seems to be active and taking contact but can step out and stretch the floor offensively.
2022 Aaron Murphy (Garner Road West): Murphy brings intrigue with his game because he has an understanding of how to battle in the paint due to him doing so in high school but also can create and use his strength to create for himself and body up opponents.
2022 Jay Curry (Garner Road West): Already known for his scoring power, averaging over 30 points per game, Curry showed us that he can be effective in other ways as well. Quick guard with the dribble, creates for himself and for others. Just a nice feel on the floor with the ball in his hands.
2021 Malachi Reeves (Upward Stars Columbia): Reeves really came on in the second half, scoring the ball effectively, showing a smooth jumper but also a shifty guard that saw the floor really well and found his teammates. Caught some eyes on Day 1.
2021 Kenechi Nwosu (Juice All-Stars Stephenson): Nwosu continues to show that he is a nice balanced, athletic prospect on the court, effective on both ends. He was aggressive in getting and attacking the rim, getting to the line, and also showing his versatility as well.
2021 Undre Lindsey (Juice All-Stars Stephenson): Though a football guy as well, Lindsey has shown consistently that he is also productive on the basketball court. Such a strong guard, uses his power and strength to overpower defenders and really get into the lane when he wants.
2022 Will Kelly (Rod Howard Select): Kelly is such a gifted, high IQ, smooth guard that understands how to be an effective scorer but not force anything as well. He scores in an array of ways and on multiple levels. This is a young man that continues to elevate his play and should only be attracting more eyes his way.
2022 6’3 Nyles Howard (Rod Howard Select): Each time you watch him, Nyles continues to attract the eyes. On Day 1, he showcased his range all throughout the game, knocking down six 3-pointers but also leading the team, showing his playmaking ability, and using his size well as a lead guard.
