#BOTS: 15U Top Performers Part 2

As always, the Best of the South was a stage for the next wave of talent to showcase their skill set. Here’s round two of our top performers from the 15 and under division of the Best of the South.

KJ Buffen, PF/SF, North Georgia Elite, 2018: The 6-foot-6 forward has logged a lot of minutes at our HoopSeen events over the years and he always seems to deliver. At the Best of the South, Buffen was a constant double-double guy and made enough noise to make a number of national evaluators take note. He’s primed for a big year at Gainesville (GA) HS and could be a one of the best sophomore producers in the state this winter. — JY 

Isaiah Mucius, F, PSA Cardinals, 2018: Mucius is a wing with tremendous length that projects as a swiss army knife type of player that can contribute in multiple aspects of the game. He made a variety of different plays and showed that he can do a little bit of everything. His length allows him to be a good shot blocker and rebounder on the defensive end. On the offensive side, he can get to the rim while also being a reliable shooter in the mid range. The ceiling on this New York wing is very high and he will be a name to know going forward. - CW

Nelson Phillips, SF, Middle Georgia Raptors, 2018 (pictured above): Every event Phillips plays in, he shows different elements of his game. The well-built wing can mix power with points and toughness and timing. He’s still a raw prospect but has the tools to keep note on for development this high school season. Phillips has shown an ability to knock down the three-ball all the while being reliable enough to be a quality rebounder at his position. — JY 

Spencer Rodgers, SG, Heat Check, 2018: Gwinnett County in north metro Atlanta has long been a county rich with Division I talent. College coaches will want to get into the mix with him early on. The long 6-foot-4 wing shot the leather off the ball at the Best of the South and played the part of a major wing producer to watch this coming high school season. He’s continually developed his offensive game and looks like a guy that will continually develop into a good-looking prospect. - JY

Isaac Weider, SG, Gateway, 2018: The Midwestern sniper got a hot hand at the BOTS and shot very well and very often. He went into rapid fire mode and was one of the best shooters in the age group. The 6-foot-3 guard pumped in the points in an efficient manor. Weiner was a fan favorite and gave everyone something to cheer about. He had a Steph Curry-like game from deep and didn’t let off the gas the rest of the event. - JY
