With over 100 teams in the event and so many kids already carrying multiple D1 offers, the talent level was high. Staying mostly at Southwest Guilford High School, here are the players who stood out the most at that location.

6'5' 2018 Jaron Williams'(Upward Stars York)
Williams had a great showing at the Hoop State Challenge and then followed that up with a great performance here. Williams is a very lengthy wing with a college ready frame. He handles the ball well in the half court and shows great range off the catch and bounce. Williams is also an excellent passer. Look for his recruitment to really pick up throughout the AAU season.

6'11' 2018 Nate Springs (Carolina Preps)
We have written a lot of Springs over the past couple events, so just put this in line. This kid's upside is so high. First off he carries a 7'5' wing span and a 35' vertical. On top of that, he runs like a gazelle and has great timing blocking shots. In his final game on Saturday, Springs went for 19 points (5-6 3P) and blocked 8 shots. It was a great showing, and one that should have high major programs watching him closely.

6'2' 2017 Donte Tatum (WCBA)
Tatum's play gave him a second offer, with Campbell, and he picked up a lot of interest from various schools around the region. Tatum is a different type of dude. He defends with athleticism and purpose. He made shots at all 3 levels, attacking the basket, but also finishing around 45% from beyond the arc. Tatum is a winner and one D1 coaches should join in on the party.

6'5' 2017 Hayden Brown (Upward Stars Dawkins)
Brown came in to the event riding the wave from his state championship run. In this event, Brown didn't slow down. In front of coaches, Brown showed the ability to handle, shoot, pass, and overall make positive winning plays. Standing at 6'5' and 225 pounds, the long limbed Brown filled the stat sheets averaging 15 points, 14 boards, 6 assists and shot 43% from beyond the arc.
