By: Ross Van De Griek

2025 6-2 PG Darius Livingston (BTI Pressure Elite 2025)

The 6-2 junior point guard is a Top-50 ranked player in the state and his high IQ stood out to me as he gets his teammates involved offensively as well as a high-prized rebounder on the defensive end of the floor. He has a ton of athleticism, and he had a couple of fast-break dunks in today’s win over Above Academy.

2027 6-10 PF Madden Geiger (BTI Pressure Elite 2027)

The 6-10 freshman power forward did a great job when it came to stretching the floor where his shooting ability is improving by the week. Offensively, Geiger showed he has great hands and elite footwork finishing around the rim. Finished with double figures in both wins over Tre Mann North and 1Family Hoops.

2025 6-2 PG Giordan Easley (SWFL Hoops 2025)

The 6-2 junior point guard is a lead guard with a ton of craftiness in his game where he can score across all three levels at the offensive end of the floor. Easley scored around the rim as well as from beyond the arc finishing with a game-high 28 points in a win over FCA Saints 2024.

2027 6-0 PG Carter Oden (1Family 15U NXT)

The 6-0 freshman guard showed a ton of creativity when he was playing off the ball where he gets to the open spots, where he can score off the bounce and catch at a high level. Defensively, Oden was very active in the passing lanes disrupting and causing havoc for opposing ball handlers.

2025 6-7 PF Pat Johnson (SWFL Hoops 2025)

Johnson, listed as a 6-7 junior can make highlight plays around the rim as well as knock down shots from the perimeter off the catch. Defensively, Johnson did a great job when it came to challenging shots with his length as well as battling on the glass limiting the opposition from getting second-chance scoring opportunities.

2026 6-7 PF Trace Westercamp (1Family 16U NXT)

The 6-7 sophomore power forward does a great job using his size around the rim whether it’s finishing on either side of the basket or using his footwork to get to the open spots. Defensively, Westercamp did a good job at running the floor as well as challenging the opponents’ shot selection.
