Aaron Burgin’s Crème of the County brainchild completed its fourth installment Saturday at Army-Navy Academy in Carlsbad.

The event featured nine games over the course of the day with squads facing off from the classes of 2023 up to 2019.

The COTC has always been one of the best events to view San Diego’s top and uncovered talent and this year’s edition didn’t disappoint.

Here are some of the top performers from the class of 2019 Select game.

Co-MVP’s: Roman Wright, Rancho Bernard and Jeremiah Brown, Serra

Wright and Brown are two different kind of guards, but their styles complimented one another very well. Wright is a quick, savvy and change of pace player who excels in the half-court setting when probing the paint and finding open teammates or hitting a floater. Brown is dynamic in transition, using his impressive end-to-end speed and aggressive mindset to get defenders on their heels and finish on the break.

Charles Williams III, La Costa Canyon

Williams might have been the biggest “stock raiser” of the entire day. The 6-foot-6 wing continues to transform his game from an inside guy into a player who can do a little bit of everything, including spread the floor from 3-point range. Williams is a long and smooth athlete who has come a long way as a jump shooter.

Diego Edwards, Southwest SD

Edwards is a well-built and versatile 6-foot-2 guard who showed he can play both on or off the ball. Edwards is always in attack mode and can score from just about every spot on the floor with efficiency and flair. The senior is one of the more underrated recruit in San Diego’s 2019 class.

Jett Wilson, Mira Mesa

Wilson stood out with his crafty and high IQ nature. The 5-foot-11 point guard had the ball on a string as he sliced through the defense and into the paint where he finished with a floater or a clever layup. Wilson had an impressive stop-and-go ability in transition that kept the defense off balance.

Drew Cisse, Rancho Bernardo

Cisse is a very raw prospect on both ends of the floor, but he used his high motor and good energy to impact both sides of the ball. The 6-foot-9 F/C uses his length and quick leaping ability to contest shots and rebound the defensive glass and runs the floor in transition with purpose. Cisse is a long-term project, but has some intangibles to his game that you can’t teach.
