Nike EAD Ducks 2019 6'6 Wing Sama'Zha Hart: Hart guest played this weekend with the Ducks and played at a high level. Hart possesses everything you look for in a high major wing. He his athletic, shoots it and guards. He played with more freedom this weekend and his upside is through the roof.
BMM 2020 6'8 Wing Caleb Lohner: Caleb was a monster this weekend. He made three's from all over the floor, rebounded and finished at the rim. Caleb is one of the hottest recruits nationally in the 2020 class and it showed this weekend.

Lone Star Elite 2021 6'6 G Christian Green: Christian gets better every time I see him. He did an excellent job defending multiple positions and setting up his teammates for easy baskets with his ability to break down the defense and find them. Christian will be as highly recruited as any 2021 player in the state when it's his time. You heard it here first.
Houston Hoops 16U 2020 6'8 F Jaquan Scott: Jaquan played very well this weekend. He rebounded, started the break, finished around the rim and blocked shots. He was a key piece in the Houston Hoops 16U run to a co-championship.
Houston Hoops 16U 2020 6'3 G Jaylin Posey: Posey was phenomenal all weekend in the Hoops run to the championship game. He was a maestro in pick and roll making all the right reads. Posey scored from all 3 levels, facilitated and defended this weekend.
Pro Skills 15U 2021 6'4 Wing Shannon Lowery: Shannon did an excellent job playing up tw0 grades this past weekend. His body, athleticism and IQ allow him to compete at a high level playing up. That team as a whole is a very good 15U team but he makes them go.
Urban DFW 2021 6'7 F Duncan Powell: Duncan rebounded and defended at a high level this weekend. He tossed in a 20 point game against Texas Impact as well. Duncan is an ultra competitor who plays with toughness and skill.

Dallas Mustangs 15U 2021 6'8 F Ed'xavior Rhodes: Rhodes is a tantalizing talent that when he's locked in is as good as any player in the city in his class. He rebounded, finished above the rim and passed well from the high post.
Houston Hoops 16U 2021 6'6 F Devon Martin: At first glance Devon looks like a football player (he is) but he is a serious prospect on the court. Devon made three's, strong drives and finished above the rim this weekend for the Hoops.
