2025 Abdulai Kabba Fanta (Victory Christian): Fanta has been a name growing more and more this summer with his play, as the 6’11 big man has continued his development and understanding of the game. Fanta’s size immediately catches your eye, but we have noticed his development over the last year both offensively and defensively. He has added more, been more assertive around the basket, and has shown his rim protection as well. And we believe there is more development in the tank with him.
2024 David Mirikwe (Chapel Hill): Mirikwe is one that we believe should attract more college attention, especially with what he provides on both sides of the court. Mirikwe is a quick, crafty guard who can run the show, create and get by defenders, and be that playmaker on the court. But it is his defense that stands out beyond anyone else at the camp, locking up defenders and creating a ton of havoc. This is why he should be getting on more radars.
2024 Malaki Long (Carolina International): Long continues to show and produce, as he shows that he can be a valuable piece on the court. We have seen him plenty of times when he is that team-first type of player, doing what is needed, and running what is needed for the offense. But in a setting like this, he showed more of his scoring ability, creating and attacking.
2025 Miles Leaks (Piedmont): From watching him at the Hoop State Fall League and now at the Exposure Camp, I continue to believe that this is a young man who can help a program and simply be a valuable piece to a team. He runs the show at Piedmont, being that scoring impact that is needed and scoring off the dribble as well as an improved shot. But he also can be that player that plays within the offense, doesn’t need to be the focal point to be successful, and makes high IQ plays.
2025 Evan Dean (Trinity Academy): Dean continues to produce and make his mark when he can. At his size at 6’6, Dean continues to show that he can knock down shots and be a threat from the perimeter. Time after time, he continues to be a consistent presence, and it will be interesting to see how he is at Trinity Academy with more opportunities.
