2024 | Justin Mims | Elite Game



If there was one 2024 prospect I’d put money on having success at the next level, it would be 2024 Justin Mims. Mims was unconscious in his first game of the weekend putting up 30 points (2 3PM) and 10 rebounds. Mims is a very athletic, small forward that plays with a tenacity and edge that allows him to score it well at all 3 levels. Mims plays on both ends and doesn’t take plays off. Mims has several JUCO offers and is a prospect that is flying under the radar in his class.


2024 | JJ Moore | Team Unshakable


2024 JJ Moore is a true point guard and continued to show why he’s one of the top unsigned players in the state of North Carolina. Moore was effective getting his team going and pushed up the ball in a fast, controlled effort. Moore is a guard that can score it outside and has great court vision. Moore is a college ready prospect that could make an impact at the next level.


2024 | Nazir Reaves | Anthony Morrow Elite



2024 6’6″ forward Nazir Reaves was dominant inside for Anthony Morrow Elite. Reaves did a great job of backing his opponents down inside and getting to the basket in limited dribbles from outside. Reaves showed he could score it from just about anywhere on the court and is able to absorb contact and finish. Reaves has a smooth game and a very high ceiling.


2024 | Jabarie Taylor | Team Underrated



2024 Jabarie Taylor is a prospect with continued development, can continue to be a standout at the next level. Taylor has the tools and the drive to take over in games; aggressive in his attack with the ball and is able to defend the basket defensively.
