6’5 2020 Keishon Porter: Team Trezz
Porter’s development has been nothing to overlook, standing at 6’5 he can create for himself off then bounce, defend four different positions, and use his incredible athleticism to finish above the rim and defenders in his way. He’s arguably the most important player on this team and showed to everybody once again that he’s a bonafide D1 level talent.
6’1 2020 Jajuan Carr: WBC Elite
If this event had a most valuable player award, Carr might run away with a unanimous vote. He’s so integral to the success of this team with the way he makes everybody around him significantly better. He will do whatever’s needed of him whether it’s scoring 30 or taking 8 shots all game and running the team like a well oiled machine. He consistently had dozens of coaches watching him throughout the weekend, and should see a spike in his recruitment from this performance.
6’8 2020 Tyler Young: NL Disciples
Young is an absolute unit on the block, at 6’8 250 lbs he is simply too much to handle down there for weaker post players, but what makes him so special are his soft hands, and excellent touch around the hoop. He lives at the free throw line and does a great job knocking those shots down, to go with being a dominant rebounder at both ends of the court. If Young continues to improve his athletic/physical traits, expect a summer blow up to be on the horizon.
6’7 2020 Donivan Range: Upward Stars Columbia 17U Moore
Range caused a lot of problems with his high motor and willingness to play physical on the block, leading to a lot of extra opportunities for him and this Upward Stars Columbia group. He does everything you need your post player to do, rebound, set hard screens, finish at the basket, and anchor your defense with excellent communication and leadership abilities.
5’9 2021 Clay Hodges: Carolina Riptide
Hodges is the kind of kid I’ll take on my team any day of the week due his willingness to do whatever it takes to win. He understands that he might not be the feature offensive guy, but he buys in on the defensive end and capitalizes on the possessions he does get. He’s incredibly unselfish and is willing to take physical punishment if it means the right play had to be made. The kid is simply a gamer that is laying the foundation for coaches to really notice what he brings to the table.
