Sweet Sixteen Session 2 – Sunday Impression-Makers

MARIETTA, GA – Sunday at Sweet Sixteen Session 2 I finished up over at NextPlay 360 to look in on more 17’s during this crucial recruiting period.

Some final day Impression-Makers:

By:  Keith Agran

Tyson Wilson | G | 2024 | AOI

Stellar controlled PG play from Wilson who can really get after it as an offensive force from multiple levels or carve you up with his decision-making, has been an AOI staple for years and has the kind of natural instincts and moxie you love for a next-level lead guard, plays in a backcourt with the versatile Twan Smith that is worth a viewing for sure over the final summer months.

Brock Rose | G/F | 2024 | Team Synergy (pictured at top)

Became a huge fan of the Synergy teams when they came to Gatlinburg last year and shined, Rose is back after having a very good 16U weekend last year, bigger and stronger the interior portion of his two-tiered game is even tougher to handle to go with the sweet-shooting touch, such a well-rounded guy and now that extra size increase his defensive versatility.

Josh Harris | F | 2024 | Team Florida

The guard play for this group is so good it’s easy to miss just how consistently productive Harris was, he was the recipient of a slew of good feeds which led to scoring chances but the 6-7 3/4 hybrid can play strong at the rim or make his living coming off the wing, either way it’s again another well-rounded guy who can slot into multiple roles at the next level.

Jalen Hilliard | G/F | 2023 | Team Forrest

Had one of the best showings of the weekend for me in a Sunday morning pretty dominant performance, we’ve always marveled at the pure athletic ability which has separated him from many of his peers but he has put a ton of work into his shooting particularly further from the basket where he now can step to arc range and consistently be effective, defensively even at 6-4 he plays a lot bigger because of the lift and has matured his entire on-court game and brims with confidence, a still available steal.

Jayden Bone | G | 2025 | Team EYA

Forgetting class he was an easy choice for my list of top PG’s from the weekend, has been rising on radars for the last year at camps around town and is firmly entrenched near the top of class of ’25 guard lists, love the ease with which he can go from controlled and patient PG to explosive scorer with a blow-by that is something to watch, all kind of shooting range and a defensive style which is pure hunger, should see huge bumps in attention off of these two live weekends.
