Miles George – SEBA – 2025

George has been trending in recent weeks as one of the most consistent guards on the OTR circuit. He has a well-rounded skill set that allows him to be effective as a lead handler or wing slasher. He finished with a game high of 28 points in a match-up with Austin Rivers SE Elite on Saturday morning. George’s poise and skill will make him a prime target for college coaches this winter.

JP Hamilton – Game Speed Elite – 2025

Hamilton delivered one of the best performances on the opening day. He scored 25 points and acted as a playmaker for his squad. Hamilton’s game is unique. He flashes to open areas in the lane and uses body control and footwork to finish around defenders in the paint. His game hits another level when he drops timely passes to teammates in the gap. Hamilton earned his way onto our radar and should be paid attention to for the rest of the summer.

Chris Litenge – Austin Rivers SE Elite – 2026

Litenge was one of the elite athletes at the event. He is a wing with strong, broad shoulders and a quick first step. He hit the gaps in the defense with purpose and finished at the rim with confidence. He finished with a team high 22 points in a morning win. We will keep tabs on the rising junior as one of the potential prime performers in the state of Florida this year and beyond.

Anthony Leivonen – TSE – 2024

We walked away impressed with Leivonen’s skill set early in the event. He is a 6-foot-4 wing who plays the game with efficiency and composure. He has a high release on his jump shot and proved that he can put the ball on the floor when attacking defender’s close outs. He certainly has the size and athleticism to compete at the next level. After today’s performance, he proved that he has a specialty to carry with him as well.

Efraim Marvin – Liberty Edge – 2024

Marvin was one of the top passers that we evaluated on Saturday. He pushes the tempo for his squad and gives the ball energy with his passing. In the flow of the half-court offense, he cuts hard off screens and then attacks the lane with a quick first step. He anticipates the defensive rotations and drops well timed assists to teammates.

Esteben Oliveras – Austin Rivers SE Elite – 2025

Oliveras turned in a top performance on day one. He is a high energy point guard who gets his team playing quickly. He attacks the paint, draws the help, and dishes to open teammates. He also proved to be a steady shooter from the perimeter. He connected on multiple 3-pointers en route to a 20-point effort.

Derek Ramirez – Team TMAC – 2026

Ramirez put together a very efficient 28-point game in a win on Saturday afternoon. His footwork and touch around the rim landed him among the top performers from the event. He creates angles to score, which is difficult for defenders to defend. His long arms and agility make him a prospect with even more room to develop and improve in the upcoming years.
