2024 | Jamicah Adair | WACG
The 6′ point guard out of Montgomery may have been one of the more impressive new guards I saw last weekend. Adair is a quick and crafty guard that is able to score the ball in bunches. Adair put up impressive numbers all weekend, scoring multiple 3-pointers each game and scoring in the paint over larger guards. Defensively, Adair stays active in the passing lanes and is able to get deflections and steals with his quickness and finish in transition. Adair has great court vision and dishes out multiple assists each game as well. Adair sparked quite a bit of conversation and should see more interest heading into the last Live Period and his senior year.
JaMicah Adair is an aggressive guard who can score from anywhere on the floor.

2024 | TJ Baker | Game Speed Elite
TJ Baker has been a name we’ve heard a lot this spring and his consistency has paid off heading into the summer. Baker has a complete game and plays stronger than advertised. A very competitive guard, Baker fights for baskets and rebounds, and goes at length to do whatever is necessary to get his team the win. Despite being a point guard, Baker still averaged close to a double-double each game. Baker has great guard instincts reading the offense and making the right reads, and can take over the game down the line to secure the win.
2024 | Rini Harris | SW Illinois Jets
Rini Harris’ name was mentioned each day during the four day Live Period for his consistent and dominate performances. Harris showed he can make shots in close games and can finish at the basket, regardless of contact or against a larger defender. Harris has great ball handling and was hard to stop when he started going downhill. Harris is a name that should be on college coaches radars after this week and has the ability to make an impact immediately at the next level.

2024 | Ace Taylor | Pressure Elite
Ace Taylor is another name that has been mentioned during and following each On the Radar event for his play and overall demeanor. On a fundamentally sound team, Taylor leads his team in scoring and rebounding, and is one of the better slashers we have seen. Taylor sacrifices his body to gain positioning over his defenders and can create his own shot from outside or at the mid-range. Taylor is an incredibly fierce competitor and does just about everything to secure the win for his team.
2024 | Ke’Shawn Watkins | Alabama Generals
Ke’Shawn Watkins averaged close to 30 points over the weekend for the Alabama Generals. Watkins is a hard player to stop with his strength and determination to get inside and score against defenders. Watkins scored it from just about everywhere on the court and could read the defense quickly once he got the ball. Watkins has a high motor and uber athleticism that allows him to dominate in the paint and on the boards. Watkins will be a player to keep an eye on heading into his senior season.
24’ 6’5 W @kehoops_ has a motor that doesn’t stop. Size & power combined with skill & athleticism causes matchup problems. Guards on the perimeter & in the paint. Can push the break & a strong finisher @OntheRadarHoops @hoopseen @TaiYoungHoops @GTuckerHoops pic.twitter.com/egZ0VPs4BE
