The first day of the Prep Hoops Grit SZN Kick Off brought some talented big men to Louisville. Here were the best 16 U bigs we saw on Friday.

George Bellevue 6’5 PF 2023 Lincolnway East (IL) Illinois Twolves: Bellevue showed good energy in the paint and played tall on the interior in their 2-3 zone. Run and jump undersized PF. Team did a good job of crashing the offensive glass to help keep them in the game. Protected the rim well from weak side. Bellevue has some athletic tools you can work with from the forward spot.

Caleb Brooks Caleb Brooks 6'9" | C Cooper | 2023 State KY , 6’8 C 2023 Cooper (KY) Griffin Elite Hardewig: nice size at 6’8 showed shooting touch, breakaway slam after he outran everybody on the defense. Most offensively talented big we saw in the 2023 class on Friday.

Ryan Rose Ryan Rose 6'8" | PF Prestonsburg | 2023 State KY , 6’8 C 2023 Prestonburg (KY) Griffin Elite Hardewig: Rose worked well with Brooks in the paint. Had some nice big to big action. Kept stuff simple on offense with layups and post moves. Not much flashy about his game, but a lot of production and dirty work here.

Amir Rogers, 6’7 C
