#67 6’3 2021 Janyle Pittman: Lancaster High School
Pittman possesses a great blend of explosiveness and playmaking ability as a true combo guard. He can take the top off the defense at any time with a jaw dropping dunk or run the team to a tee when needed. His perimeter jumper is continuing to develop at a nice rate and his on-ball defense may be his best attribute as a player. He does a great job playing within the team concept, never forcing the issue and making the right decision far more often than not. It’s reasonable to believe that he’s going to end up a D1 player, but no matter where he ends up he’ll compete with heart.
#114 6’7 2023 Gregory Jackson: Ridge View High School
Jackson is one of the more intriguing prospects at camp due to his unique blend of size and shooting touch at such a young age. He has a really advanced perimeter skillset with catch and shoot ability from beyond the arc to go with a couple of go to moves in the mid-post. He’ll have a chance to continue to the Ridge View tradition of producing elite talent and is trending as one of the top 2-3 kids in SC’s 2023 class. There’s a lot to be excited about in South Carolina basketball these days and talent like Jackson prove that the excitement isn’t stopping anytime soon.
#4 5’9 2022 Edward “Brice” Cohen: Blythewood High School
Cohen was a really efficient floor general using his vision and creativity to create for himself and others on the offensive end. He has the ball on a string, using his incredible instincts to shift by oncoming defenders as they come at him. He used his craftiness around the rim to finish in traffic and clearly has an advanced understanding of the game for a kid his age. If he continues to develop physically and athletically, there’s no reason to believe that he won’t develop into a next level prospect.
#44 6’1 2021 Daveon Thomas: Lee Central High School
Thomas was one of the more explosive guards on display in the 2nd game of the day. He used his explosiveness to punish the rim every chance he got while also displaying a reliable outside jumper. He’s comfortable on or off the ball and excels in transition where he can display his incredible explosiveness. There’s so much to like about Thomas moving forward and he should be considered a no brainer scholarship level prospect.
#72 6’3 2021 Cohen Gaskins: Pinewood Prep
Gaskins is an early contender for Mr.Playmaker award due to his uncanny vision and flare when looking for others. He’s got eyes on the back of his head, using his court awareness to make plays that nobody else in the gym thought was possible. To go with his ability to create for others, Gaskins is a great perimeter shooter and does a great job using his size in the post when defended by smaller guards. He has great footwork on the block and that makes him a true 3 level scoring threat in the half court.
