With the first session of spring travel season in the books. I compiled a list of players who played well beyond my initial thoughts of them. Here are the  2023 players that excelled these past two months on the PH Circuit and other events 
 
Darrion Baker Darrion Baker 6'8" | PF Hillcrest | 2023 State IL - Hilcrest (Team Rose) 
 
Baker has been one of the biggest surprises this spring. His play has opened the eyes of many scouts. Darrion is inching close to 6’9 and has shown how versatile he can be. Baker scores well in the post finishing with either hand. The biggest flex in his game is the ability to play on the perimeter at his size. He can put the ball on the ground and get to the rim or he can knock down shots if the defense plays back. Baker is a beast on the boards and can block shots on the defensive end. Mid-major schools will get a chance to see him in June with his high school and I expect the offers to start pouring in.
