2028 | Lee Steele | Team Grind

Lee Steele is a lefty, lead guard that showed he could knock it down from deep the second he crossed half court. Steele gets the shot off quickly and many times throughout the weekend when defenders gave him space, he let it go. Steele hit several from midrange, driving past defenders and hitting several nice floaters from either hand around the basket over the bigs. Steele is a long guard that knows how to use his body to get past guards quickly.

2028 | Blake Bell | B Maze Elite

Blake Bell showed he has the skillset and IQ to be a high level prospect over the next few years. Bell moves like a high school veteran guard and can make plays from just about anywhere on the court. Defensively, Bell came up with big time stops and converted in transition. Bell is athletic and has a deep level understanding for the game.


2028 | Ty Pace | B Maze Elite

Ty Pace made a lot of noise this past weekend for B Maze Elite. Pace is a confident young guard that can make the right passes or plays for his team. Pace can get hot quickly from outside with a high clip. As a smaller guard, Pace understands his value and what he needs to do to get shots off quickly over larger defenders.


2028 | Tyler Wilson | SMB

Tyler Wilson caught the attention of several scouts during Session 1 of the Battleground. Wilson is an athletic, shifty guard that found his way to the basket on multiple occasions. Wilson used his size and strength, as well as versatility to get past defenders and finish inside. Wilson read the court well and was able to get several assists throughout the weekend. Wilson will be a solid prospect to track the next several years.


2028 | Quincy McGhee | SMB

Quincy McGhee is a nice scoring option to a deep SMB team. McGhee is a lengthy guard with a high release that allows him to get shots over his defenders. McGhee shot from a high clip throughout the weekend and had several nice and-ones throughout the weekend. As McGhee continues to add size and strength, he will be a player to track as well.


2028 | AJ Turnbough | AR Elite

AJ Turnbough did just about everything on the court for his AR Elite squad. Turnbough is 6’4″ and was able to play and guard each position on the floor. Several plays included Turnbough grabbing the defensive rebound and scoring on the other end in transition. Turnbough had multiple double-double games and with continued growth can be a great prospect for the next level.
