Conrad P. Foss Memorial – 17U studs

The second annual Conrad P. Foss Memorial is in the books and we saw some fun talent get after it in the season-starting event in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Let's take a look at the eye-catchers from the 17 and under division. 

Isaiah Newson, 2026 PG, SCE UA: Newson was one of the most exciting players in the event. The slippery guard excelled at getting downhill and creating plays in the lane, whether it was making tough, off-balance shots over bigger defenders or making flashy passes to teammates. His creativity with the ball in his hands was second to none. Despite playing up an age group, Newson was one of the best — and most dominant — players in the 17U division.

Tor-El Robinson, 2025 WF, Wellington Wolves Glenn: Wellington Wolves Glenn captured the Varsity division championship behind the intensity and energy from Tor-El Robinson. The lengthy, 6-foot-4 forward caused chaos on the floor with his motor and hard-nosed play. He made tough finishes through contact around the rim and even knocked down some shots from range, creating some intrigue around his game. 

Max Simmons, 2025 SG, TNT HoopSquad: Simmons wasted no time making his presence known over the weekend. The sharpshooter shot the ball early and often, showcasing his range and overall shooting ability from start to finish. On Saturday alone, he made five three-pointers in one game and seven three-pointers in another. Simmons wasn’t afraid to let it fly and made the most of his weekend. 

K’mar Honore, 2025 CG, FCA Saints: Honore was another player in the 17U division that utilized his shooting ability to leave his mark. The 5-foot-10 guard mixed things up playing on and off the ball, scoring off the bounce and making shots off the catch. Honore has the ability to play both guard spots effectively as he showed in Wesley Chapel.

J’London Bivens, 2025 CG, SCE UA: Bivens was quite the compliment for his backcourt mate, Isaiah Newson. The 6-foot guard brought power and force to the backcourt, punishing smaller defenders and making the most of his athleticism and strong frame. Bivens showed versatility as a guard, doing a nice job of defending and rebounding for his team. A nice variety of Division 1 and Division 2 schools will want to see him this spring.
