6’5″ 2025 Jackson Powers (Davie County)

Powers was highly productive throughout the weekend, displaying an improved ability to space the floor, create for others, and attack the glass on both ends. He was highly efficient as a shooter, especially off the catch, forcing opponents to attempt to run him off the line which opened up space for both Powers and his teammates to attack the rim. He’s always been a smart and unselfish playmaker but this weekend specifically he shined as a passer out of the high post and in transition. He understands how to make the right read and isn’t hesitant to do so each and every time. His combination of size and skillset should make him a sought after prospect in this upcoming recruiting cycle.

6’1″ 2025 Miles Leaks (Piedmont)

Leaks continues to be one of the most productive and overlooked lead guards in the state. He’s as proficient as they come when scoring from all three levels, especially with this Piedmont group, and yet he nevers appears to force the issue or stray from making the right play. He’s a lethal shooting threat with repeatable mechanics and range off the catch and the bounce. He can play on or off the ball, something that should translate nicely to the next level. He has great vision as a passer and is elite at making the simple play with consistency. His high-level of consistency should make him a hot commodity among a variety of college coaches in due time.

6’5″ 2025 Joel Deigna (Oak Ridge Military)

Deigna had a quietly productive spring that has culminated in a rather loud June with Oak Ridge Military Academy. He dominated around the rim with his strong frame and explosive athleticism. He plays with a nonstop motor which shows up on the glass and in transition. He dominates defensively, able to guard a wide range of positions and make opponents uncomfortable with his physicality. He’s a strong finisher around the rim and is incredibly difficult to stop when he gets a full head of steam. All of his physical tools combined with his toughness, motor, and flashes of perimeter shooting make Deigna an intriguing prospect to track.

6′ 2028 Deuce Geer (Chapel Hill)

Geer was one of the more impressive freshmen prospects in attendance, highlighting his ability to hit shots, create for others, and his natural feel for the game. He displayed a heightened understanding of how and when to make the right play, something that was magnified by his craftiness with the ball and smooth shooting mechanics. He was consistently hitting shots at multiple levels, especially thriving off the bounce. He was able to create space against bigger opponents and he wasn’t afraid of contact. Given his creation instincts, established skillset, and young age, it’s easy to imagine Geer becoming one of the more productive guards in his class.

6’4″ 2028 Mekhi Allen (Queen’s Grant)

Allen has been one of the more highly touted prospects in his class for a while now and we’re slowly starting to see him combine his wide array of tools into consistent production. He’s incredibly fluid with the ball in his hands, especially relative to his age and size. He was efficient as an outside shooter and as a scorer at multiple levels off the bounce. He handled contact well and showed toughness on both ends. He guarded multiple positions, rebounded his position well, and showed a solid understanding of how to make winning plays. Given his physical tools, blossoming skillset, and overall willingness to play his role, Allen projects as one of the better prospects in his class early on.
