Parker Hodgson, Dream Big Elite: When reflecting on all of the action that I saw over the weekend, I can say for certain that Hodgson belongs in the conversation of best shooter at Carolina Jam. He’s got the stroke that feels automatic when he lets it fly. At multiple points, I’d check in on a DBE game, and Hodgson would be out there sinking shots. This dude is lethal from deep. - Josh Tec

Khyelle Ingram, Juice All-Stars Stephenson : The first thing that you notice with Ingram is his college-ready body, and has size for the wing position. He uses his physicality to score over smaller defenders and he is a good positional rebounder. Ingram has the ability to guard multiple positions and he can hurt the opposition with his versatility of being able to score the perimeter and get baskets in the paint. - Justin Byerly

#5 Walker Woodall, Wildcats Elite: I am a fan of guys that can guard multiple positions and can score in a variety of ways from different areas on the floor. Woodall can do this and he made quite the impression with his NC Wildcats 17U team this weekend in downtown Raleigh. Woodall is a 6-foot-5 prospect with a big frame. He understands the spacing needed for a guy his size to be such a threat from the outside. Not many times you see a guy that can make as many shots from the outside that are built like Woodall. Looks like he can play at the next level. Dudes like this are interesting. - Justin Byerly

Dylan Purnell, Team Trezz - Length at the wing position, Purnell will come at you hard and try to dunk anything he can around the rim. He is a solid defender and rebounder with his wingspan causing a lot of problems on the defensive side of the ball. He thrives at attacking the paint and getting to the rim. He is a guy you have to always watch on the perimeter because of his ability to score from beyond the three-point line and his quick first-step that he uses to blow-by defenders and get to the rim. - Justin Byerly

Rodmik Allen, WBC Elite - Playing up two age groups, Allen was beyond impressive in my first time seeing him. He is a three-level scorer who can get it in from all over the floor. Playing varsity this season for New Hanover High School, he helped lead the team to a 24-1 overall record running the point guard position. The 2025 prospect can break defenders down off the dribble and can get into the paint at will. WBC-Elite has always been a program that can bring some dudes and this one, Allen, is going to be special. - Justin Byerly
