Now that we’re almost a full month into AAU action, it’s time to reflect on some of the evaluations we’ve gathered over that timespan. Some of 2024 class got their first taste of varsity action this winter, while others were using the AAU stage as their coming out party if their season got canceled due to COVID-19. For this series, I’ll take a look at the prospects in each class who boosted their stock starting with this year’s freshmen class.

Derik Queen Derik Queen 6'8" | PF St. Frances | 2024 MD | 6’8 | Team Thrill

It’s crazy to think that Queen could’ve boosted his stock any more after being names Max Preps National Freshman of the Year, but the 6-foot-8 point forward used the month of April to prove himself against top competition at the 16U level with Team Thrill. Queen is truly a unique prospect with the way that he can score, handle the ball and pass all at 6-foot-8. The fluidity and the pace that he plays with is unlike any other prospect in the DMV. Queen holds offers from Maryland, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, LSU and Arizona State.
