The time has finally come for the highly anticipated April Live Periods. With the recruiting landscape in complete shambles, there’s still an abundance of unsigned, college-level seniors fighting for their chance to advance to the collegiate ranks. We’ve seen all of these prospects, and written about each of them previously. That being said, we decided to construct an article with a small blurb about some of the uncommitted prospects in the Class of 2022. These descriptions will offer a mere overview of the player, and our earlier pieces will expound upon these brief comments. Let’s take a closer look…

6’5 Lenier Pocknett (WBC Elite)

Athletic, physical forward. Finishes well around the basket. Attacks well in straight line penetration. Possesses a strong frame. Rebounds his position well and runs the floor hard in transition. 

5’11 Spencer Hairston (Carolina Clutch)

Notable shot-maker with range and ability off the bounce. Capable passer and playmaker. Creates well for himself or others. Fairly crafty with the ball. Will attack the basket and finish stronger than his size would imply. Displays IQ and defensive prowess. 

6’0 Asil Hoyle (Team EAT)

Polished scoring guard with craftiness and vision. Quick first step and the ability to breakdown opponents with regularity. Scores with efficiency from all levels. Creates for himself and others. Highlights a reliable midrange pull-up.

6’1 TJ Ragland (Team Push)

Tough, heady guard who loves to get downhill and attack the basket or pull-up from the elbows. Excellent in the midrange. Defends well at the point of attack. Great in transition. Solid rebounder. Can play with or without the ball in his hands.

6’3 Kendrell Brooks (Wildcats Elite)

Rugged, athletic wing with shot-making ability. Plays well within the team concept but can create his own shot when necessary. Useful spot-up threat and finisher. Provides great effort as a defender and rebounder. 

5’11 Jaylen Jones (CC Elite)

Scrappy two-way guard. Comfortably makes plays as a game manager. Capable scoring option. Looks to set up others whenever possible. Defends well at the point of attack. Doesn’t force the action. 

6’2 Jayvian Tatum (WBC Elite)

Strong, athletic guard with perimeter shooting. Finishes strong and through contact but arguably better from midrange or beyond the arc. Willing to utilize his body and mix it up to make hustle plays. Doesn’t require the ball to make an impact. 

6’7 Ethan Smith (NC Spartans Bell)

Skilled, stretch-forward. Lethal three-point shooter with the ability to attack closeouts and set up others through sharp vision. Can score or pass out of the post. Shoots the ball well off the catch or dribble. Able to operate from the block, midrange, or beyond the arc. 

6’2 Jeremy Daniel (Team Push)

Strong, physical guard with vision and defensive prowess. Tough on both ends of the floor. Unselfish offensively but capable of scoring in multiple ways. Utilizes his body to outwork opponents. 

5’10 William Jenkins (Team EAT)

High-motor guard with clear desire to defend. Displays great activity and willingness to make hustle plays on a constant basis. Tough as nails. He does a nice job of initiating the offense, setting up others, and looking to score within the flow of the action. 

6’5 Mikhail Pocknett (WBC Elite)

Versatile wing/forward who excels when getting downhill and applying pressure as a penetrator. Great at maneuvering his way around opponents and into favorable scoring positions. Capable passer and midrange scorer. Rebounds and pushes in transition. 

6’5 Isaiah Williams (Team Synergy)

Very well-rounded forward who plays hard and bigger than his size. No glaring weaknesses. Can adapt to the surrounding pieces. Rebounds very well, defends his assignment effectively, and takes whatever the defense gives him as a scorer. Great teammate.
