The Hoop Review SoCal Spring Tip-Off featured nearly 120 programs from all across the Western United States.

Many of the most well-known programs from Southern and Northern California, along with Nevada and Arizona, made their way to Next Level Sports Complex in Garden Grove for the two-day event which kicked off what will surely be a wild club basketball season.

Below is is a handful of lesser-known sophomores who turned in solid weekend performances.

Christian Bood, Team Why Not 16 (Bishop Montgomery)

Bood, a Bishop Montgomery-product, has nice size and length for the stretch four spot at 6-feet-4 and 180 pounds, and his ability to stroke the 3-point shot with consistency creates match-up problems for the opponents.

Tyree Campbell, Prodigy Elite 17 

Campbell spent last season playing on the (loaded and undefeated) junior varsity team at Etiwanda last season, but definitely looked like he belonged on the highest level of club ball. The rangy 6-foot-4 wing uses his long, smooth strides to get by defenders and into the paint where he finishes through or around contact. Like most Etiwanda players, Campbell is

Cali Elite 17 Blue guard Armon Muldrew put up huge numbers for Orange Vista high last season, but is still an under-the-radar prospect.

a high-level on-ball defender and instinctual team defender.

Stephen Davis, 805 Family 17

Davis, who plays his prep ball at Santa Barbara high school, is a promising combo guard prospect with good feel on the ball an the ability to play off of it. The 6-foot-1 Davis has good length for his size, is smooth and craft on attack, and can pull-up and drain a feathery mid-range jumper.

Armon Muldrew, Cali Elite 17 Blue

Muldrew put up huge numbers at Orange Vista during his sophomore campaign, recording better than 25 points, five rebounds and four assists per game, but is still one of the most underrated guards in all of SoCal. Muldrew is explosive and fast with the ball in transition and has the strength and body control to finish in the paint through contact. The 6-foot guard showed impressive touch on his mid-range and 3-point pull-up jump shots.
