When you have 160 teams in the event, and hundreds of coaches watching some kids step up to the plate and perform. There is a unique group of unsigned seniors, who this is their last chance to play for scholarships. Here is a listing of guys who certainly stepped up to the plate and should see coaches coming through.

5'11' Jalen Sanders
Team FLY/North Rowan HS

Sanders is tough, there is no questioning that. He has a demeanor that bleeds down throughout his team, and wins a lot of ball games. Sanders has gotten his body right, he is defending 94', and winning games. Throughout the process he carried multiple D1 offers, but those have filled up. He averaged 19 points per game this season and led his high school to a 20-2 record. No question he is a D1 point guard.

6’2 Charles Falden
River City Reign/LC Bird HS
From the opening tip to the 27 point explosion in the championship game, Falden was on a mission. He was his conference’s Player of the Year this year and was selected all state. Falden is athletic, tough, and can flat score the ball at 3 all 3 levels. It will be interesting to see what the next month has in store for his recruitment.

6'1' Robert Colon
NC Xpress/Northside HS

A lot has been spoken about Colon recently, and rightfully so he carries a lot of 'winners' traits. During this event, he came right out the gate and dropped 26 points (6 3s) and dished 7 assists. This is a pretty typical performance for Colon. He likes the spotlight, can handle the ball with some flair, and shoots the ball with consistency. This season he averaged 18 points, 4 assists, and 2 steals per game for his 23-4 team.

6'3' Tyrique McClain
USA United/Wayne Christian School

It's a shame many don't know about McClain, because they should. He is a prolific scorer having averaged 30 points per game this year and finishing with over 60 multiple times in his career. McClain has a great frame, a solid handle, and a jet quick 1st'step. He has offers from Urbana and Elizabeth City St. Schools should look close.

6'6' Aaron Adair
Upward Stars XSalt/Genesis Academy

Adair is a unique player. He has a very strong frame with great length and basketball IQ. He defends the wing well and handles the ball in the half court to set things up. In this event he showed the ability to get downhill and attack the rim. He finished among the trees well. Adair comes from a basketball family and has been around the game his whole life. He is an intriguing prospect moving forward.

6'7' Akia Pruitt
Flight 22 West/RJ Reynolds

After his performance this weekend, Pruitt committed to UNC Pembroke. Pruitt brought a host of schools in to watch him, majority from the high D2 to low D1 range (including UNC-P). Pruitt showed his skill set throughout the event. He is a multi-positional defender, able to defend the 3 or 4. He is a high motor offensive player, who showed some ball skills and range. He plays above the rim and is a very dynamic player, producing numbers across the stat line.
