Carolina Bad Boyz:
5’3 ’26 Khristian Bruce- Though young and playing up, Bruce was a major part of the Bad Boyz success this morning. He forced an abundance of turnovers, pushed transition play, and willingly looked to create for others. Bruce is a pesky all-around defender with a blossoming offensive skillset. He’ll certainly be one to watch develop, especially as he grows into his body.
5’0 ’25 Joseph Bruce- The floor general was among the most reliable all-around performers for this LKN1 squad. He’s somewhat small, but does a nice job of managing the game and playing conservatively on both ends of the floor. Bruce is a capable shooter and playmaker.
Asheville Game Changers:
6’6 ’23 Addison Archer- The two-way post has easily been the most enticing prospect on display thus far. He possesses phenomenal length and shot-blocking instincts, which allows him to effortlessly protect the rim and alter nearly every attempt within ten to fifteen feet. Archer has a blossoming offensive skillset, but already looks quite comfortable operating around the basket and utilizing either hand on finishes. His ceiling is extremely high and will continue to expand as he physically develops.
6’3 ’23 Athan Gill- The forward prospect is already very versatile and productive, but could become even more dominant in time. Gill has an amazing combination of size, strength, and athleticism, which basically allows him to do whatever he desires on offense. He’s playing above the rim and understands how to physically overwhelm his assignment on both ends of the floor. Gill is truly only beginning to scratch the surface of his long-term potential.
York County Legends:
5’8 ’23 Kanye Nelson- The two-way wing has been the most polished offensive player in the gym this morning. He effortlessly scores the ball from all three levels and possesses no glaring weaknesses within his skillset. Nelson sees the floor extremely well and willingly looks to make the right play whenever possible. He has an excellent IQ and overall feel for the game, simply able to make everything look incredibly easy. Nelson was also a fantastic leader, both by example and in terms of vocal communication.
Grind Academy Red:
5’4 ’25 Elam Pressley- The scoring guard continues to do his thing on offense while providing scrappy contributions on defense. He’s a capable perimeter shooter that likes to attack and finish around the basket. Pressley works hard and scores the ball effectively in transition.
5’5 ’25 Doug Quarles- There’s a lot to like with the young guard, as he plays hard, embraces his role, and plays well within the team concept. Quarles has basketball bloodlines, which should help his physical development. He possesses a solid overall feel and should be a prospect to watch going forward.
Save Sports Raiders:
5’6 ’25 Marcel Freeman- The all-around wing prospect is the main glue-guy for this team, given his ability to consistently affect various facets of the game. Freeman plays with a great motor and looks to make winning plays whenever possible. He’s willing to do anything to provide his team with an edge and was among their best leaders.
