It was a great weekend at Queens University. The facility was great, the atmosphere was even better, and the talent was outstanding. Teams competed at the highest of levels and are hoping to use this as a building block towards a successful season.
Players took advantage of the platform as well, as these were the players that stood out from the event.
2020 6’4 Ricky Council IV (Southern Durham)
It seems that the hard work has paid off for this young man, as everything is clicking in his game. He showcased his ability to almost be unstoppable, using his athletic frame to attack and finish at the rim, displaying his quick second jump to rebound and compete down low, and knock down the open jumper. He was a force on the floor and really is becoming one of the top 2020 prospects in the state.
2020 Ahmad Hamilton (Southern Durham)
Hamilton was a baller all weekend long. Scoring the ball all over the floor, knocking down jumpers left and right and displaying that he can be a force on the offensive end. He had a great weekend for his team and looks to continue his trend this high school season.
2020 6’0 Anthony Allen (Independence)
Allen was absolutely fantastic when he was on the floor. He played with great control, saw the floor well, playing with a smooth feel as a lead point guard. Whether it was running/ pushing the offense, distributing the ball, or scoring inside and out, Allen displayed it all. There is no surprise college coaches are looking at him and more offers should be coming.
2021 6’9 Jorday Wildy (Moravian Prep)
Wildy was impressive, especially on Day 3. He does a lot of good things on the floor for his team. Wildy runs the floor well, uses his length to his advantage and can create a mismatch on the floor. His touch around the rim and feel with his back to the basket was intriguing, but he also can be a difference maker on the defensive end.
2021 5’10 Jordan McPhatter (Butler)
McPhatter is an absolute spectacular guard offensively and plays with the mindset of attacking opponents. His confidence is at an all-time high and plays bigger than listed. McPhatter has terrific handles, strong vision on the floor, and the ability to score on all three levels.
2022 6’4 Kheni Briggs (AL Brown)
It is hard to believe that he is a 2022 prospect because he already has a strong built, and plays with a smooth feel to his game. Briggs has a chance to be a special prospect. Throughout the event, he displayed high level moves to get open, played at a smooth pace to his game, but plays with a toughness to his game.
