By: Ross Van De Griek

2027 6-2 PG Josiah Manrow (1Family 15U)

Manrow, A 6-2 freshman point guard showcased his true abilities on how to initiate the offense. Manrow brought a high IQ and is very coachable when out on the floor, knowing when to take the right shots whether it’s off the catch or bounce. Expect to see Manrow blow up this spring and summer as he finished the weekend with an 11-point outing in a win over South Florida Select National.

2027 6-3 SG Ryan Gornto (OBC Elite)

Gornto, A 6-3 freshman combo guard did a great job when he got to his spots on the offensive end in a win over OTH Elite 2027. Gornto finished with a game-high 26 points, including going 7-of-9 from beyond the arc. His defensive skills were impeccable whether he was guarding on or off the ball he had five steals as well as three rebounds as well.

2026 5-10 PG Toby Lane (BTI Pressure Elite 16U)

Lane, A 5-10 sophomore point guard is a true leader on the floor as he brought a ton of vocality onto the floor in their win over 1Family Hoops 16U. Defensively, Lane was very active when it came to applying ball pressure on the opposing guards causing havoc and showcasing a ton of activity in the passing lanes. He was also very smooth offensively when it came to initiating the pick-and-roll offense. Don’t be surprised to see Lane’s stock continue to rise as the spring and summer roll on.

2025 6-7 PF Aidan Agnew (BTI Pressure Elite 17U)

The 6-7 unsigned power forward continues to play with a high motor day in and day out. Agnew showcased his strong frame on both ends of the floor whether he was catching lobs on the offensive end or disrupting passes with his length at the defensive end. He will be re-classifying to the Class of 2025 where he can get a fresh new look at his possible recruitment.

2024 6-4 SF Toney Collins (Holiday Hoops 17U)

The 6-4 senior small forward played bigger than his size indicates as he is very long and active around the rim at both ends of the floor. Offensively, Collins can score on all three levels whether it’s off the bounce or catch as his release from the perimeter continues to improve with more confidence. D-2 schools have continued to express their heavy interest in Collins.

2025 6-1 PG Colby Cannizzaro (SCE 2025 UA RISE)

Cannizzaro, A 6-1 junior point guard showed a ton of productivity where he scores on all three levels at a high rate, as well as play solid defense when guarding on-the-ball. He also displayed very good footwork out on the perimeter as well as showcasing his quickness to recover when it came to challenging shots around the rim. Expect Cannizzaro to continue playing more freely and confidently as the spring and summer roll on.
