6’10 ’19 Aidan Igiehon
The international big man has seen one of the biggest recruitment boosters during these last six
to eight months. It’s probably because most programs are looking for strong, athletic big men
that can provide energy, and Igiehon fits the bill exceptionally well. His main use on the floor is
hunting rebounds and protecting the rim, a pair of skills that have become increasingly vital in
today’s game. Igiehon plays with an excellent motor and continues to sharpen his offensive
skillset. If he learns how to face-up or work with his back to the basket, Igiehon could easily be
one of the most coveted big men in the country.

6’10 ’19 Makhel Mitchell
On day one of Top 100 Camp, we wrote about Makhi Mitchell, but after an extended look at
Mekhel, it became clear that he also deserved some credit. Mitchell and Moussa Cisse had an
absolute battle to begin the second day of action, and while Cisse had his moments, Mitchell
showed his experience and physical dominance. He’s continuing to develop his face-up game,
but looks comfortable shooting from midrange and beyond the three-point arc. Mitchell may not
be headed to Maryland with his brother, but high-level programs will certainly need to look into
his case.

6’4 ’19 Justin Moore
Team Takeover has built a reputation as one of the most successful travel programs in grassroots
history, consistently winning games while sending players off to the professional ranks. That
being said, it’s guys like Moore who take the team from “good” to “great” with his individual
two-way presence. In many ways, Moore is like a glue-guy, in the regard that he understands
how to make plays on both sides of the ball when necessary. He’s a quality ball-handler and
scorer, but there isn’t one specific thing that outshines Moore’s other skills. Make no mistake, he
is a very strong prospect, but it’ll be interesting to see if he can develop an elite skill.

6’10 ’19 Omar Payne
It feels like just yesterday when Omar Payne was in our gym at Summer Havoc, playing with
CP25 and dominating. Nothing has changed since then. Payne still brings an unmatched intensity
to the game, especially on defense, and knows his role better than any player in the gym. The 6-
foot-10 big man blocks shots and secures rebounds at an incredibly high level, but still has plenty
of upside remaining on offense. Payne still lacks a true offensive identity, but he’s well aware of
his strengths and weaknesses. His no-nonsense worth ethic on the floor will definitely make him
a coveted prospect across the country.

6’9 ’20 Day’Ron Sharpe
The rise of Day’Ron Sharpe has been real and, over the last year, he’s grown a noticeable four or
so inches while continually improving on the court. Sharpe displays great feel and touch around
the basket on both ends of the floor; he pursues rebounds well and shows a firm understanding of
how to make an impact on the court. The University of North Carolina has continued to make a
priority out of the South Central big man, but only time will tell where he ultimately settles for
the next level.
