Competing in the 3/4 Court Sprint, Hayden Smith Hayden Smith 6'3" | SG McMinn County | 2023 State TN recorded a 3.65 time, a below average time considering his overall mobility.  Improving his straight-line speed should be a priority. 

Average to above average feet.  Smith showed off average handle for a high school guard and yet slightly more impressive ’tall guard’ handle.  Strong upper-lower body.  His touch is good enough throughout the mid-range.

Smith showed he is physically able to to endure contact.  During the Sunday event, Hayden Smith Hayden Smith 6'3" | SG McMinn County | 2023 State TN did not shoot enough three-pointers for a complete evaluation.

Ideally, Smith will use his body and handle to create problems and draw fouls.  He is the type of big-bodied penetrator that should live at the free throw line.

Elite shooter.  Drake ranked as the third-best ’24 in the building.  Maybe a future college shooting guard?

Hit from every spot on the floor. 

Drake Ingram Drake Ingram 6'0" | PG Knoxville Webb | 2024 TN needs to develop his overall strength to supplement his game.  Focusing on shoulders and chest will also make him a more sturdy shooter.  Ingram is quick for a ’24, but will absolutely need to continue to develop his quickness through plyometrics and sprint training. 

Ingram is in a strong, advantageous place for a ’24 prospect.
