Already known as a scorer, White is upgrading his scoring package. He’s lights out from long range and has a quick release and terrific size for the wing spot. He pumped in nearly 30 points in the first game we watched at the Summer Jam and finished with nearly 20 in his next one. He must get more comfortable handling the ball under pressure, but he’s rebounding his position and showed he could get a bucket going to the basket every now and then. ..

He might have been the top point guard at the entire Adidas Invitational. Hill came in with a good reputation, but he was so good that teams were flocking to see his Florida Rams team. Look for Hill to be one of the most heavily recruited players in the entire class given his combination of shot making, feel for the game, and being a solid person off the floor. Always a good player, now Hill is projecting as an elite player.

It’s tough to say a guy already rated among the top 10 players in the country raised their stock that much. But what Noel accomplished at the Peach Jam was rather impressive. From a defensive standpoint, Noel is flat out dominant. He blocked many shots and affected others. Defenders were thinking twice when they attacked the basket and that helped BABC score a Peach Jam title.

At the Peach Jam not many people had Newby circled on their list coming in, but from the first game on it was obvious that he was in the middle of a blow up. His strength and athleticism are impressive for a guard, and even his skill game looked much better. Newby vaulted himself into a position where he is now one of the best unsigned guards left on the board, and his phone is sure to be busy for a long time to come.

Because of his size, Carr is one of the toughest evaluations in high school basketball. After watching him twice at the Hoop Group Team Camp, it’s hard to see him as anything but a high major prospect. Sure he’s only 5-foot-6, but Carr is fast, athletic and energetic. He pushes the tempo, gets to the rim and creates for his teammates. He’s toned down his act a little and is becoming more trust worthy with the ball. His stock is on the rise.

It is tough for a five-star prospect to really raise his stock too much, but Williams did just that. After an average at best spring, Williams showed playing at the 16-and under level that he is one of the truly elite players in his class. He dominated from day one at the Peach Jam, and ended up leading his team to the title. For Williams he didn’t need a true breakout, but he definitely had one.

Having watched Jordan at the Reebok Breakout camp and at the Hoop Group Team Camp, it’s easy to see the talented flowing through Jordan’s 6-foot-4 frame. He obviously has great size for the position, but he has poise, knows how to lead a team and is a tremendous passer. Already known as a top 100 prospect, Jordan has a chance to contend to move into the top five at his position.

He was great at the LeBron James Skills Academy and then followed it up with another solid performance at the Peach Jam. The athletically gifted point guard has been fielding offers ever since the end of the early evaluation period, and now is becoming a priority recruit for high-major schools. Rozier’s athleticism and ability to beat defenders off the dribble combined with his energy and shot making made him a very popular target for coaches.

Coming off the Nike Elite 100, Sina looked like a solid high major player that shoots it well from three. But after watching him at the LeBron James Skills Academy and the Hoop Group Team camp, Sina we came away with a better appreciation for his game. He’s certainly a very good shooter, but he can go off the bounce for jumpers, set up teammates and slice his way to the basket.

On a team loaded with no doubt high-major prospects, some were doubting Artis coming into the evaluation period. Coming out of it no one has any questions about his ability. He was instrumental in leading the Soldiers to an excellent showing at the Peach Jam. Artis has asserted himself as one of the best remaining point guards in the country.
