The dirty South had a lot of great talent represented at Prep Hoops The Platform in Birmingham, Alabama last weekend. With watching over 300 great teams battle it out, it was great to watch some of the guys closer to home really shine.

Here are the Texas and Alabama standouts:

 

Willie Williams Willie Williams 6'5" | PF Houston Westfield | 2022 State TX , 6’7", 2022, Grassroots: North Houston Bandits

Williams was by far one of the most well-polished prospects of the entire weekend. The big fella has some of the best low post fundamentals I’ve seen from a high schooler, and his dominant size gives him the strength to move defenders with ease. He has an uncanny ability to float around the basket and find where he needs to be for easy layups and tough finishes. Teams that let him get into the paint almost always gave up a bucket, regardless of who was guarding him, making him an almost impossible player to actually stop. He’ll be an intriguing prospect this year in Texas and with some more development could be a great addition to a collegiate roster.

Jalen Collins, 5’10", 2022, Grassroots: North Houston Bandits
