Over the weekend, one of the best events annually took place in Hampton, Virginia at the Boo Williams Sportsplex. Southern Jam Fest is always a can’t miss event and it lived up to that reputation once again. I’ll break down some of the prospects who helped boost their stock in the 17U bracket.

No way I can start this article without Fernandez as the headliner. The 6-foot-6 guard/wing has been on a tear this spring and high majors are taking notice. Yesterday within a four hour span, Fernandez received offers from Virginia Tech, VCU, Radford and Norfolk State. Expect that list to continue to grow quickly as I’ve had a couple of A-10 programs reach out with heavy interest. Fernandez’s ability to score from all three levels at his size is intriguing, but it’s his explosive athleticism that puts him over the top of many competing prospects. That size and athleticism also make him into a versatile option defensively. Couple that with his effort level and what you have is a can’t miss MM to HM prospect.
