The Prep Hoops Circuit Mayhem In The Plex was a massive success this past weekend in Fort Worth, Texas.

I took in the action for the three-day tournament at the main facility, Game On Sports Complex in Fort Worth, Texas.

Here’s a look at the top standouts that I saw.


Mayhem In The Plex: Top Performers (Day 1)

Mayhem In The Plex: Standouts (Part 1)


Jourdyn Grandberry & Xavion Brice (Texas Impact 15U)

For a young Texas Impact 15U group, 2022 pair Jourdyn Grandberry (Richland) and Xavion Brice (Arlington Seguin) were steady pieces alongside sharpshooter CJ Booker. Brice, a 6’1″ guard had good poise on the boards and putbacks finishing with 14 points while Grandberry, a 6’3″ forward had 12 points of his own with some good instincts inside using his length well.

Demontreal Crutchfield (Team Buddy Buckets 17U)

On a steady Team Buddy Buckets 17U team, 2020 6’2″ Del City guard Demontreal Crutchfield is someone who made things happen early and often. Crutchfield is really sound on the break, hitting shots in the stride and near the cup. Perhaps his best attribute is his grinder like mindset defensively, not allowing much easy.

Elijhia Thomas (Ridgepoint/Texas MEL Elite 17U)

A true athlete, 2020 6’1″ Ridgepoint guard Elijhia Thomas stood out for various reasons to me this past weekend in Fort Worth. Thomas is a very crafty and intriguing ballhandler with nice footspeed and court awareness. He hustles back on defense always looking to create turnovers.

Ja’bryant Hill (Duncanville/Team FOE Elite 17U)

One of the most fun prospects to watch this weekend was on a beyond deep Team Foe Elite squad. 2020 5’11” Duncanville guard Ja’bryant Hill was on absolute fire on Saturday against Woodz Elite Select, connecting on mid-range looks whether he was set or running in transition. He has sneaky good elusiveness that allows him to twist his body and get going on floaters. Plus, he draws a lot of contact.

Dominic Johnson (Euless Trinity/Showtyme White)

On an undersized Showtyme White unit, 2020 6’3″ Euless Trinity guard Dominic Johnson was an all-around performer. He uses every inch of his length to box out and grab boards on both ends of the floor. His 3-point shooting ability was one of the best that I saw out of any player in attendance.  Johnson is someone to keep a close eye on as his progresses this summer and fall.
