Team 1

Coach: Sean Burnette

#1: 5’7 ’25 TJ Troy (Gray Collegiate)

Starting things off, we look at a player who produced quite well despite being the smallest camper on this team, TJ Troy. He’s a smart, tough, high-motor point guard prospect with a tight handle, sharp vision, and excellent jumper from beyond the arc. Troy understands how to manage a team and direct an offense. He does a great job of applying downhill pressure as a penetrator and setting up others, but can also finish around the basket. Troy showed the ability to knock down three-pointers at a high percentage, both off the catch and bounce. He provides a steady defensive presence at the point of attack. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Burnette on Troy: “TJ is a solid guard. He’s a good three-point shooter who looks to get others involved whenever possible. He needs to work on anticipating pressure and passing out of traps.” Troy enjoyed a nice showing at camp and should be a useful piece for Gray Collegiate over these next two seasons.

#16: 6’0 ’25 Jacarey Ballard (Lancaster)

Next, we look at a player who simply knows how to make an impact alongside any collection of teammates, Jacarey Ballard. He’s a smart, tough guard prospect with the ability to initiate the offense or apply scoring pressure as an off-ball threat. Ballard utilizes his excellent quickness to get by defenders, touch the paint, and finish or set up others. He’s a rugged defender who naturally overwhelms opponents through his nonstop energy. Ballard is willing to make the hustle plays and do the dirty work whenever necessary. He also made his presence felt nicely in transition. Next in his development process is working on his consistency from beyond the arc, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Burnette on Ballard: “”Jacarey is a good player with good speed and quickness. Needs to work on his shot and range from beyond the arc. Played with great energy and a positive attitude.” Ballard was among the leading scorers at camp and should have a productive junior season for Lancaster.

#17: 6’0 ’24 Kishan Chung (Blythewood)

Moving onto a player who provided his team with a very steady, reliable two-way presence, Kishan Chung. He’s a smart, unselfish, high-motor guard prospect with the ability to make a consistent impact with or without the ball in his hands. Chung is capable of dictating the action as a primary creator, where he’s able to get others involved while picking his spots as a scorer. That being said, he’s also comfortable at taking over for stretches and applying efficient pressure from all three levels. Chung moves well without the ball to find opportunities as a cutter and spot-up threat. He defends the point of attack well and pursues rebounds whenever possible. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Burnette on Chung: “Kishan is a smart player with a good understanding of the game. Seized his opportunities well but needs to work on controlling the pace of the game.” Chung enjoyed a quality showing at camp and should be a piece for college coaches to target during his upcoming senior season.

#32: 6’1 ’25 Tyj Jones (Laurens)

Continuing onto a player who consistently found ways to outwork opponents on both ends of the floor, Tyj Jones. He’s a tough, rugged, high-motor guard prospect with a great penetration sense and the ability to make a constant impact without requiring the ball in his hands. Jones is strong, quick, and physical, which allows him to dominate his assignment on the glass and force turnovers at a terrific rate. Jones finishes very well through contact, but can also knock down jumpers as needed. Next in his development process is working on his playmaking ability, as he has the necessary vision and ball skills to be a strong creator. Coach Burnette on Jones: “Tyj is a tough kid who plays with great energy on both ends of the floor. That being said, he can work on his court vision and overall decision making without the ball.” Jones made his presence felt during his time at camp and should be a key piece for Laurens over these next two seasons.

#33: 6’1 ’25 Zamari Copley (Rock (Hill)

Next, we look at a player who did a great job of filling in the gaps within the flow of the action, Zamari Copley. He’s a tough, unselfish guard prospect with a high motor and willingness to do whatever necessary to provide his team with an edge. Copley can penetrate, set up others, and knock down the occasional perimeter jumper. Defensively, he plays with excellent effort and regularly outworks his assignment for hustle plays and extra possessions. Next in his development process is working on becoming a better spot-up threat, as it would allow him to become a more complete player. Coach Burnette on Copley: “Zamari is a solid player. Needs to work on spacing and moving without the ball. Has a decent shot, just needs to continue working.” Copley enjoyed a solid showing during his time at camp and should be a strong contributor for Rock Hill over the coming years.

#48: 6’3 ’24 Jahlil Hope (Ashley Ridge)

Moving onto a player who arguably stood out as one of the steadiest performers on this team, Jahlil Hope. He’s a smart, skilled guard prospect with a high motor and team-first approach to the game. Hope highlighted useful creation skills and the ability to apply scoring pressure from all levels, but also understands how to assert himself within the flow of the action. He contained his assignment well defensively, made hustle plays, and secured rebounds at a solid rate for his size/position. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better creator. Coach Burnette on Hope: “Jahlil plays with good pace and possesses a nice level of athleticism. Plays with great energy. Needs to work on his ability to move without the ball in order to maximize his presence as a cutter and spot-up threat.” Hope did a lot of things well at camp and should be a key piece for Ashley Ridge during his upcoming senior season.

#49: 6’3 ’24 Jamarie Brown (South Florence)

Continuing onto a player who made a lasting impression as a leader for this group, Jamarie Brown. He’s a long, well-rounded guard prospect with a great combination of IQ, size, and skill. Brown knows how to run a team and consistently get others involved, but also possesses polished scoring instincts and the ability to apply efficient offensive pressure from all levels. He’s arguably at his best when getting downhill and attacking the basket, where he’s able to finish, pull up from midrange, or set up his teammates. Brown is also a reliable three-point shooter. He’s a quality on-ball defender with great anticipation for forcing turnovers at the point of attack. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to play more seamlessly alongside another primary creator. Coach Burnette on Brown: “Jamarie is a smart player with good IQ. Penetrates and passes well. Needs to work on transition defense.” Brown certainly stood out at camp and should be a focal point for South Florence over the upcoming season.

Needs to improve his footwork.” Lathon did a lot of things well during his time at camp and should be a leader for Marion over these next two seasons.

Moving onto a player who showcased a ton of appeal as an offensive weapon, Zeke Marshall. He’s a long, wiry wing prospect with a high IQ, terrific motor, and polished skillset. Marshall is a smooth shooter, both from midrange and beyond the arc, and finishes well around the basket. He’s a useful creator with a tight handle and nice vision as a passer. Marshall does a great job of asserting himself within the flow of the action, but can also take over as needed. He rebounds the ball at a solid rate for his size/position. Next in his development process is working on his overall defensive presence, as he has the necessary tools to shut down his assignment. Coach Burnette on Marshall: “Zeke is a good player with a nice three-point shot. I would like to see him work on his defense. Has the tendency to relax too much on that end of the floor.” Marshall proved to be an asset at camp and will be a prospect to watch for Westside going forward.

#80: 6’10 ’24 Caden Giles (Nation Ford)

Finishing up, we look at a player who did a terrific job of anchoring the paint as the lone big man on this team, Caden Giles. He’s a long, mobile post prospect with a great combination of IQ, touch, and inside-out scoring ability. Giles finishes well around the basket and above the rim, but also knocks down shots at a quality rate from midrange and beyond the arc.

Displays a good understanding of the game. Scores well on the block but needs to work on expanding his array of moves with his back to the basket. Caden has good shot form from distance.” Giles did a lot of things well at camp and should be a target for several types of programs entering his senior season.
