Only playing four game sets on Day 1, it ended up being a great opening day. We had just over 50 coaches come through the doors including numerous head coaches and NCAA tournament teams.

Only playing four game sets on Day 1, it ended up being a great opening day. We had just over 50 coaches come through the doors including numerous head coaches and NCAA tournament teams. Even better, players performed at a very high level. New names were placed on recruiting boards and old names solidified their spots. Never the less, here are the 5 who stood above the rest on Day 1'

6'6' 2018 Isaiah Bigelow
Team Felton Elite (NC)

Bigelow can flat out score the ball. He has deep range, great shot prep and an incredibly quick release. Standing at a lengthy 6'6', Bigelow was able to find efficiency at all 3 levels, only missing 3 shots and going for 26 total points. Carrying offers from Western Carolina and North Florida (was in to watch), Bigelow should have mid to mid-plus programs in love with him.

6'5' 2018 BJ Fitzgerald
434 Elite Ballers (VA)

Fitzgerald was possibly the most impressive player on the day. The sturdily built shooting guard displayed the entire arsenal in this one. He finished with a Day 1 high of 33 points and added in 12 rebounds. He scored the ball from range, he attacked the rim and he showed great pace on the ball. It was an utterly dominate performance and one that D1s should get in to see.

6'5' 2018 Kaeleb Carter
Higher Level (VA)

Every time out Carter produces. He has the type of game where even if he is not scoring he is affecting the game positively. Carter is a high level defender who can defend the 1 through the 4. He is hyper athletic and aggressive when he turns the corner and gets downhill. In this game he scored a game high 21, low plus schools should be in love with this one.

6' 2018 Kenny Dye
Flight 22 Elite (NC)

Dye is a winner, plain and simple. When the college coaches watching asked what he does best, the answer was, 'He just wins''. Dye has a propensity to make the right play whether it be off the bounce, in the paint or knocking down the 18'-22' jump shot. Dye is a player low majors should be sitting on.

6'4' 2018 Drew Williamson
West Virginia Wildcats (WV)

Williamson has a very translatable skill, he is a player with size who can really shoot it. He is more than a 1-dimensional shooter as he showed the ability to make the 1 and 2 dribble pull up. Williamson carries a High Point offer, he is one lows and mids should be watching closely.
