Richmond, VA – Over the years the talent that played in Big Shots Richmond events has been mind-boggling like the likes of Frank Mason III, Devin Robinson, Grayson Allen, Kennedy Meeks, Sindarius Thornwell & more. The Big Shots VA Top 100 has had players that seize the opportunity of the stage and make a statement earning interests and offers. Kevin Dorsey Jr. (Colorado State), Brandon Kamga (High Point) and Dravon Mangum (Charlotte) were past MVP’s. Lets look at this year’s 2018 top performers and MVP:

A high motor, tough minded lead guard that puts on your heels with his drive game and can rise up at the rim or hit the mid-range jumper at a high rate. Several college coaches were in to see him and he did not disappoint. A two-way player that shuts you down defensively converting steals into points. Has a strong frame and quick feet. Explosive off 2 feet plays a tip game above the rim. Starred in Big Shots DC Live. Very coachable, great energy, Receiving LM D1/D2 interests from Wright State, Francis Marion, Chowan and others.
