6’6 Jayan Walker (Combine Academy)

Between his time at Jordan, Millbrook, and Combine, everyone should be familiar with Walker and his overall growth as a player. He’s a long, athletic, well-rounded wing prospect with excellent size and the ability to impact the game in several different roles. Walker possesses great defensive prowess and regularly displays the tools to guard multiple positions. He’s a reliable rebounder, capable initiator, and useful scoring option. Walker knocks down jumpers at a consistent clip and applies strong pressure as a penetrator and finisher. Add in his transition presence and low-maintenance identity, and it’s easy to see him being a valuable piece at the next level.

6’5 Isaiah Washington (Winston-Salem Christian)

Highly polished scorers will always be coveted, and Washington is easily one of the best offensive weapons in the state. Sure, he’s made strides as a defender and playmaker, but is clearly at his best when looking to assert himself. Washington creates well off the dribble, both for himself and others, and understands when to pick his spots versus defer to others. That being said, he’s capable of effortlessly filling it up from all levels. Washington possesses great length, athleticism, and toughness. He would be a huge addition for a lot of programs.

6’9 Gabriel Mabor (Gaston Christian)

It’s genuinely shocking Mabor doesn’t have more action within his recruitment, especially given the desire for rebounding and rim protection. He’s a long, high-motor big man with excellent instincts on the glass and overall timing as a shot-blocker. Mabor excels at anchoring the paint, running the floor, and finishing around the basket. He also shows some flashes of vision, ball skills, and perimeter shooting, but his value clearly lies within his malleable, low-maintenance identity. Given his general growth as a player, expect him to be an impact piece wherever he furthers his playing career.

6’6 Maurio Hanson (Chambers)

In a time where traditional big men have steadily decreased in number, Hanson is somewhat of a rare breed. His low-post ability makes him somewhat of an old-school big man with touch, footwork, and an understanding of how to effectively utilize his body. However, Hanson possesses a useful amount of perimeter skill. He’s a willing passer, quality floor-spacer, and capable option off the dribble. Hanson carves out space well to secure position, both as a scorer and rebounder, and blocks shots at a solid rate. His combination of size, skill, and athleticism should appeal to a variety of programs.

6’4 Paul Jones (Combine Academy)

After making a name for himself in Virginia, Jones entered the Hoopstate and immediately began contributing for the Goats. He’s a smooth-shooting guard with the ability to initiate, create, and operate without the ball. Jones is arguably at his best in spot-up situations, but appears more than comfortable attacking closeouts and making decisions with the ball in his hands. Despite unorthodox mechanics, his jumper converts with consistency. Jones rebounds and contains his assignment well defensively. His understanding of how to impact the game with or without the ball in his hands is a big part of what makes him so valuable.
