Jaiden Haynes | Drew Charter
The 6’2″ guard out of Drew Charter, Jaiden Haynes, was everywhere on Saturday. Haynes plays much larger than his size, and with his activeness and athleticism on the court, he’s hard to stop. Haynes had multiple plays in transition and did well feeding the ball into teammate, Dakylan Hill. Haynes gets downhill quickly and inside of 15 feet, he does well getting to the rim and cleaning up on the boards.
Samuel Shoptaw | Lowndes High School
The 6’2″ guard out of Lowndes High School, Samuel Shoptaw, put evaluators on notice on Saturday. Shoptaw showed he can knock down from long range consistently, and one of his more impressive traits was darting in on-point passes to teammates. Shoptaw sees the court exceptionally well and the 2025 guard already has his first D1 offer from South Alabama.
Cameron Smith | Pebblebrook
The 6’2″ guard out of Pebblebrook, Cameron Smith, is going to be another big time weapon for the Falcons. Smith is an assertive guard that handles the ball well and gets to his spots. Smith picked up an early D1 offer from St. Bonaventure in June with his stellar Live Period play, and will be a solid 2025 prospect to continue to track as he helps his Pebblebrook team to a play off run this season.
Sean Van Dorn | Fayette County
The 6’5″ wing, Sean Van Dorn out of Fayette County, was one of the more intriguing 2025 prospects in the building. Van Dorn has great size and shoots exceptionally well. Van Dorn made a lot of noise on Saturday with his scoring ability; knocking down from long-range and finishing some big time dunks. With his size, he’s able to post up inside and has nice footwork around the basket. Will be a big time player to track in the class of 2025.
Alex Young | Brookwood High School
Alex Young caught attention of evaluators during the June Live Period and hasn’t slowed down since. Young had a strong summer being a young lead guard with his Brookwood team and his confidence has continued to grow throughout the summer. On Saturday, Young did well hitting the open shots and running the lead guard spot; finding open teammates and attacking the basket. At 6’5″, Young outsizes his opponents and makes the right reads from creating his own shot or attacking down hill. Young has a high ceiling and will be a prospect to continue to track throughout the high school season.
