6-4 G, Mayoum Mayoum, 2020, Showtime Hoops

Mayoum was one of the most energetic prospects in attendance and his defensive activity led to several highlight-reel worthy dunks out in transition. Right now, athleticism and high-energy are his calling cards; however, he showed tremendous improvement on his jumpshot from session I to session II. From everything we’ve gathered, coaches love Mayoum’s motor and will monitor his progression closely. Once the 6-4 athletic specimen polishes his offensive creativity and develops a consistent shooting stroke, he’ll be a priority target on the trail. Canisius, Georgetown, and Stetson have already thrown their names into the hat with offers.

6-7 F, Gavin Rains, 2019, PSB Select

Rains is a rim-running strong-forward that made a living on the glass at session II. His relentless effort on the boards led to a couple double-double performances. In addition, he has a nice pick-and-pop game to go along with his interior presence which makes him an intriguing prospect moving forward. New Hampshire and Wofford have been in heavy contact and could make things official any day now.

6-7 F, Dontavius King, 2019, Team EAT

King has a great nose for the ball and is seemingly always around the action. The 6-7 combo-forward was a force inside-out at session II and coaches took notice. The College of Charleston and South Carolina State extended offers following the tournament, but we expect more phone calls to pour in moving forward. King possesses decent size and skillset, but his playmaking ability is what will make him a valuable piece to someone’s puzzle at the next level.

6-3 PG, LJ Thomas, GA Stars 2021 EYBL

Thomas is a rising sophomore that doesn’t have any offers at the time being, but that will more than likely change in the near future. We monitored this kid closely over the weekend and his cool, calm, and collected approach from the lead guard position was off the charts. He controlled pace superbly and picked his spots scoring timely baskets. No, Thomas isn’t a five-star talent, but we came away impressed with how he handled himself playing up 17U. Remember the name!

6-7 PF, Juwan Perdue, 2019, SC Ballers 

Perdue continues to impress with his energy and awe-inspiring shot blocking ability. In addition, he is becoming an outstanding rebounder in traffic due to his soft hands and bounce. He handles the ball fairly well in transition and score off slashes to the basket. He has the overall makeup and tools to be a highly recruited big man in his class.
