2021 6’3 Ryan Roberts NC ICE
Ryan a 6’3 forward that has a unique game. For the ICE he plays a forward spite despite being a combo guard who shoots it extremely well. As a forward he runs the floor well with and without the ball. Ryan is a knock down shooter. Once he sets his feet, it looks like it’s going in every time. Ryan has made major improvements to his body since our earlier events, which helps him run the floor well in transition finishing through and over contact. Over the weekend he was NC ICE biggest sleeper. He went off for 27pts in a win where he displayed his versatility. Exploded for 5 threes and had some sneaky athletic dunks in transition.
6’2 Greg Moore Team Passion
Greg Moore remember the name! He was easily the BEST shooter I’ve seen at Phenom Summer Havoc at Nation Ford High. He’s more than a spot up shooter, he has the ability to hit his defenders with combo moves to get them off balanced. He knows his spots in transition, so when he gets there, his shots go up in a blur. I’ve watched this Team Passion team play 4 times and Greg has made 4 or more threes in each of his showings. The most underrated part about Greg game is that he has the ball on a string. Although he’s not the fastest guard, he has a very quick handle which helps him create his shot from anywhere on the floor.
6’1 ’21 Antonio Pruitt (Carolina Nicks)
We’ve seen Pruitt play outstanding every game throughout this event. He’s clearly the Nicks go to player. He’s consistently the best player on the court because he has a full package at the guard position. Pruitt highlight of his talent is his athletic abilities, in addition he shoots it well and a strong finisher. Mixing his athletic ability with his smooth touch, he’s a hard guard to stay in front of.
6’1 ’22 Sam Laydon (Carolina Storm)
The smart, quick floor general was easily one of the impressive floor generals in the event. He controls his team well, while staying true to his game when teams try to speed him up. The guard as an amazing guard vision to go along with his tight handle and sweet stroke. This point guard has seen double teams and a few possessions triple teams come his way and still won the matchups. Laydon is definitely one of the Summer Havoc Top performers.
6’3 ’22 Kendall Smith (Team Loaded McCullough)
The long, athletic wing surprised a lot showing his abilities at that size. Smith is an athletic guard who has a great handle. It’s hard for defenders to guard him because he can do a little bit of everything, with his high he can post, with his skill set he can put it on the floor, and if you back off he can elevate and shoot the three. He is a special prospect with much upsides.
