Birmingham was loaded with talent from across the country last weekend as college coaches of all levels gathered to watch The Platform. I was able to catch 25+ games over the weekend and these are eight of the top performers I saw at the point guard spot!

Akeem Nelson Akeem Nelson 6'1" | PG Minnesota prep academy | 2022 MN (6’1 2023 PG, Minnesota Heat Pratt)- Akeem put on the best display of passing I saw all weekend, as the Minnesota Prep guard put up a 15 point and 10 assist double-double in a win for his team. Akeem was getting into the paint whenever he wanted, and always had his eyes scanning the floor allowing him to kick it out to open shooters with accuracy. When looking to score he was a tough finisher going up through contact, and also scored using a quick spin move to avoid a defender. In one of the most impressive plays of the day, Akeem tipped a pass and then threw the ball behind his head to hit a streaking teammate in stride towards the basket. Defensively he was a menace on the ball, pressuring everything inside half-court and jumping passing lanes on his way to six steals.
