Elite 2020 PG’s …Dallas Seawolves (TX) 2020 KJ Pruitt showed why he’s a top 50 prospect in 2020 class as a 6’4 lefty PG with juice and pace off the bounce and high major size and game.
2020 Kaden Metheny was the top 15U performer. Big Shots Elite WV plays with a high level burst and toughness. He will put on a show at the beach this week. No. 1 2020 WV.
Zaire Wade (Wade Elite) is a pure point guard with the gears and experience that you want in a high level PG. Best passer in All American Camp. He’s been well trained and taught as the son of NBA star Dwayne Wade.
Top overall big prospect…2020 Yussif Basa Ama of Wade Elite is a high level prospect that stands at 6’9 plays well above rim with a high motor and feel and touch out to the 15 feet. He is one of Florida’s top prospects in 2020.
Raleigh Well Represented…NC Runnin Rebels stars shined Aaron Cash really helped himself tonight showing his elite athleticism and ability to shoot the 3 at 6’6. Kenyon Burt & Marque Maultsby were their typical high motor, high productive selves. Chris Barnett lit it up and Marque Maultsby.
