2024 | Devin Brafford | BMaze Elite UAA
The 7′ center out of Rabun Gap was impressive for BMaze Elite coming off a full weekend at Lake Point for the UAA Live Period. Brafford really spreads the floor offensively; knocking down 3’s, running floaters, and dunks anywhere within 5 feet of the basket. He really made it tough for the offense and was one of the more impressive rim protectors I saw this weekend.
2024 | Josh Harris | Team Florida
The 6’8″ forward out of Team Florida, Josh Harris, was impressive all spring and brought the same energy this summer. Harris is a long forward that has a high motor and gets to the basket with effortless footwork. Harris does well scoring inside of 15 feet, impressive scoring ability with his back to the basket or spot up around the midrange. Harris can also extend the court with his shooting ability and quick trigger release. Harris is a tough player to stop downhill and can score through traffic and contact. Harris holds a D1 offer from North Florida.
2024 @Joshharris2024 continues to turn heads. Extremely active around the rim both on the glass and scoring in the paint. Has shown consistent ability to hit the spot up 3

2024 | Caleb Kawela | Team Forrest
2024 6’5″ forward, Caleb Kawela, was a double double machine for Team Forrest. Kawela has been more consistent this season staying engaged in plays on both ends. Kawela was very impressive on the boards and fighting the other team, usually outnumbered, for rebounds. Due to his effort, Kawela got a lot of easy put backs for his work on the boards.

2024 | Daniel Thomas | Lone Star Elite
The 6’8″ center from Lone Star Elite stood out from the jump this weekend. Thomas was impressive on both ends; offensively with his back to the basket to hit the fadeaway, midrange, or a quick post move to finish the play with a dunk. Defensively, Thomas showed his ability to protect the basket and fill up the paint with his length. Thomas picked up an offer from Edward Waters University this weekend.

2025 | Preston Wade | Team Mookie
The 6’8″ center for Team Mookie, Preston Wade, is going to have a lot of attention on him the next few years. Wade is pretty developed for a young big with the ability to stretch the floor and show he can hit from outside. Wade understands how to use his body inside and wrecked havoc for the offense getting to the paint. Wade has been tabbed as a stock riser from our team and will be a prospect to track the next few years.
