Top Performers & Surprises – (Listed by height)
Nerlens Noel 6-11 C (2013) (pictured)Tilton, NH School (BABC) – He continues to impress with his fast developing offensive game hitting elbow jumper and getting to rim with dribble drive. If offense continues to develop, look for this shot blocker to change for top spot in class!
Brandon Watkins 6-10 C (2013)
Kennedy Meeks 6-10 C (2013)
T.J. Williams 6-9 C/PF (2013) Wilmington, NC Ashley (Flight 22) – This long and active surprise insider finished with dunk on drop step and hit boards, made outlet and ran floor hard. He can block shots too! He’s one for mid and high majors to take a look at this summer.
Brice Johnson 6-9 PF Orangeburg, SC Edisto (Carolina Ravens) – This explosive and long face-up four man continues to raise his level of play. He hit jumper from 17-feet and finished in the paint with flush off the dribble.
Demetrius Henry 6-9 PF
Charles Mitchell 6-8 PF Marietta, GA Wheeler (Worldwide Renegades) – This powerful inside scorer plays to the rim, but like most wide bodied inside scorers he has a great set of hands and knows how to use his body to score in paint. Definitely one high majors should be following this summer!
Tevin Glass 6-8 PF Lilburn, GA Meadowcreek (Worldwide Renegades) – This athletic insider can crash the glass, outlet and fill a lane. He has started to develop a face-up game and hits mid-range jumper to se up dribble drive.
Jalen Robinson 6-8 PF Columbus, OH Northland (All-Ohio Red) – Athletic insider did solid job on the glass, scored with jump hook or pop out jumper. He can drive and score off the face-up too. He is just starting to see consistency on his jumper.
Georges Niang 6-8 PF
Jake Layman 6-8 W/PF Wrentham, MA King Phillip (BABC) – This quick and athletic wing forward showed range to three, can create dribble drive going left or right and has the ability to score in traffic with flush or pull-up jumper.
Desmond Ringer 6-8 PF (2013) McDonough, GA Eagle’s Landing ( Georgia Stars) – This strong inside scorer who has an excellent set of hands, can knock down face-up jumper on elbow or fill a lane in transition. He isn’t flashy, but he is efficient.
Dwayne Foreman 6-7 W/PF (2013)
Dontae Hawkins 6-7 WF
Harold Givens 6-7 WF
Andrew White 6-6 WF Charlottesville, VA Miller School (Team Loaded) – When Tyler Lewis had to leave, he really stepped up. He scored with jumper inside the arc and flush at the rim. He has a motor and wasn’t afraid to get some floor burns.
Montay Brandon 6-6 SG/WF High Point , NC Wesleyan Academy (D-One Sports) – This skilled point wing, brought ball up for D-One at times, showed he can pass the rock. He has range to the arc and can attack hoop off the dribble.
Seventh Woods 6-6 WF (2016)

Marcus Maye 6-2 P/SG Melbourne, FL Holy Trinity (Team Breakdown) – This solid back court talent hit open three, scored off dribble in transition game or popped pull-up in the lane. He showed he can defend or deliver rock to open man while we watched.
Rene Castro 6-2 PG (2013) Milton, MA Beaver County Day (BABC) – This physical point guard isn’t flashy, but he does deliver the ball to open man in half-court or transition. He has range to three to keep “D” honest and will make plays on defensively in open court.
Richard Lee 6-2 PG (2014)
Terry Rozier 6-1 PG Shaker Heights, OH High (All-Ohio Red) – He can continue to build on his play this past month. He can flat out stick three from deep, and with regularity, that opens up lanes to get to rim or make pass. He can run show for high majors!
Kenny Leger 6-1 SG (2014)
Nigel Johnson 6-0 PG (2013) Ashburn, VA Broad Run (Team Loaded) – This young point stepped in for Lewis and did an excellent job, he is an excellent passer with quicks who sets it up with jumper to the arc. Looks like he’s on target to be a high major point in the future.
