The unsung passing ability from Anthony Edwards impressed me the most with watching him the past two days. The Atlanta XPress 2020 guard does so much so well. His ranking is solidified.

When Chico Carter is on, he is really good. Probably the best shooter for Team Charlotte. Tough, good handle, becoming a better defender. The mid-lands of SC produces quality guards and he is in that spectrum. 11 points and 5 assists after 3.

Caleb Mills scores in a variety of ways, he is 6-6 from FG range and 5-5 from charity stripe. PSB Elite rising senior is a hot commodity among coaches here.

Jaden DeLaire of NE6 Hoops has 20 of the team’s 29 points late in the second quarter against Team EAT. Great size, athleticism and has a natural feel for the game.

B. Maze Elite’s Jaden Springer just dropped what had to be close to 25 points against Team Moam. High-Level scoring mentality for the rising junior.  Tennessee recruit Drew Pember with 15 points with 3 triples.

PSB Elite big man Justice Ajogbor showed signs of getting back to where he was before injury. Footwork is high-level, big time academic, soft touch, just needs some more run and he is back.

Will have to have Hakim Hart of  Philly Pride in my short list of best shooters I have seen this spring/summer. Kid can light it up and can get hot. Utilizes shot fake and knocks down shots. Smooth and simple.

Donta Scott is a guy that wins. Versatile wing defender that can guard up to four positions. Scored 18 points and dished out 9 assists for Philly Pride last night in opening round.

Chase Hunter uses his strength to get buckets others his size can’t. He finished with contact on more than three occasions.

B. Maze Elite guard Ques Glover is as tough as they come. Skilled playmaker that will take the tough shots. Strong, in your grill defender. 5’11 but plays much bigger. Picked up an offer from Mount St. Mary’s this week.

Dontavius King has put in the work since April. Able to take defenders off the dribble for Team EAT. Great body, strong, stepped out and knocked down some long shots, stock is rising.
