Boogie Fland 
2024 | Guard | PSA Cardinals 

Was excited to get another live look at Boogie Fland who currently sits in the Top-15 of our 2024 national rankings. The Archbishop Stepinac (NY) product is a prospect who is filled with flair, skill & shotmaking ability. Put his offensive arsenal on full display during Sunday’s action by showcasing his potent pull-up package. The shifty advantage creator thrived picking apart defenders in isolation situations. Also demonstrated a strong feel & wise decision-making with the ball in his hands. Fland recently announced the final eight schools he is considering: Alabama, North Carolina, UConn, Maryland, Kentucky, St. John's. Michigan ad Indiana.

Nate Guerengomba 
2024 | Guard | PSA Cardinals

Guerengomba showed off some steady growth in his offensive skillset over the weekend. He’s a well-built athlete who is highly physical & aggressive at the point of attack when slashing downhill. Smooth spot-up scorer who put his quick & fluid release on full display from three-point range. A hard-nosed finisher at the rim who proved that he could take bumps & convert layups through contact. Tough on-ball defender who is laterally quick, plus he also showed the ability to wall-off opposing ball handlers. 

Jason Schofield 
2024 | Forward | PSA Cardinals

Schofield was a steady & consistent producer for PSA Cardinals in New Jersey over the weekend. Fundamentally sound & well-rounded wing forward who appears to of made strides defensively. A capable back to the basket scorer with a consistent jump hook, plus he has the touch to finish plays through traffic in the lane. Reliable spot-up threat who has the versatility to stretch the floor, primarily out of the pick & pop. Energetic rebounder & a notable defensive presence who garnered some deflections with his activity on that end of the floor. 

Kelvin Odih
2025 | Wing | Rhode Island Elite

Odih is improving at a rapid rate and he has a legitimate chance to enter our 2025 rankings in their next update. The Rhode Island native is an explosive & aggressive athlete who is a prominent slasher. Leverages a quick-twitch to beat closeouts and he’s filled with vertical pop as a rim finisher. Developing spot-up shooter who is capable of hurting opponents on the perimeter when given enough space. Dangerous grab & go threat who gets up the floor in a blur with his end to end speed and quick twitch reflexes. Marquette was the first high-major to offer and more should follow in the near future. 

Darius Lopes
2025 | Guard | Rhode Island Elite 

Lopes is another prospect who has been steadily adding to his game and he played well throughout the weekend in Jersey. The long athlete demonstrated a balanced combination of scoring & playmaking. Capable advantage creator who has the speed & crossovers to create space, plus he’s become much more confident as a pull-up scorer. Proved to be a reliable spot-up shooter with range that extends out to the three-point line and he also flashed a notable passing acumen. The Vermont Academy (VT) backcourt prospect could see some more schools enter the mix soon.

Tye Dorset 
2024 | Guard | East Coast Cyclones

Dorset is an underrated guard who caught my eye throughout the weekend in Jersey. Versatile scoring threat who proved that he could hurt defenses from multiple levels, plus he made contributions on the defensive end as well. Utilizes a quick first step to beat closeouts when attacking off the bounce, yet he’s a smooth spot-up scorer with comfortability on the perimeter. Instinctual on-ball defender who possesses the foot speed & instincts to guard in space. Wouldn’t be surprised if more programs started to get involved with Dorset. 

EJ Campbell
2024 | Guard | East Coast Cyclones 

Campbell was another backcourt prospect who shined for East Coast Cyclones over the weekend. He’s another well-rounded combo guard who had success while playing on or off the ball. Fluid shotmaker whose comfortable stepping into pull-up jumpers, yet he’s more than capable of scoring on the perimeter. He also impressed on the defensive end of the floor by leveraging his length to disrupt the rhythm of opposing ball handlers. The East Coast Cyclones had multiple prospects who impressed, although Dorset & Campbell led the way for this group in Jersey. 

Anderson Cummins 
2024 | Guard | Canada Elite

Cummins had a big outing during Sunday’s slate of games and he’s a sleeper prospect to look out for in Canada. He’s an ultra-athletic guard who is filled with explosiveness & aggression as a rim finisher. Dynamic handler in the open floor who utilized burst & changes of pace to blow by opponents routinely. His quickness translated to the defensive end where he was scrappy & laterally quick when guarding the ball. Flashed some spot-up shooting value, although the athleticism and slashing popped most. 

Ibrahim Gati
2025 | Forward | Rhode Island Elite 

Gati was another Rhode Island Elite product who shined on Saturday after producing a big double-double. The positional size, length, and upside pop at first glance, although his motor never seemed to stop in New Jersey. He was a productive scorer with his back to the basket given his power & toughness as a rim finisher. A reliable lob threat who has the hands & verticality to finish off lob plays above the rim. Also flashed some shooting upside as a floorspacer out of the pick & roll. Another Northeast product to keep an eye on at The Darrow School (NY). 

Santana Sinvilcin 
2024 | Guard | Jersey Force

Sinvilcin had some impressive outings over the weekend while playing a high level of competition at the Summer Jumpoff. He’s a well-built athlete who popped out with his spot-up shooting value & quick release off the catch. He was a lethal weapon off the ball which allowed him to be utilized in numerous offensive sets & off-ball screens to find open space. Sinvilcin was a physical defender at the point of attack who put together multiple stops as well. 

Jaziah Luckie-Carter
2025 | Wing | CM3 

Luckie-Carter is another high-upside prospect who played well against New Heights Lightning. Lengthy athlete who is a fluid spot-up scorer with extensive touch as a shooter. More than capable of putting it on the deck to beat closeouts, plus he flashed some touch as a rim finisher. Highly productive rebounder for a wing who was physical & active on the glass. Moved well without the ball & made some heady cuts to earn high-percentage looks around the rim. 

Jayden Johnson
2024 | Guard | CM3 

While Flavio Jean was mentioned in our Saturday Standouts article from the Summer Jumpoff, Jayden Johnson certainly shined on Sunday. Ultra-quick lead guard who is a shifty ball handler at the point of attack with impressive acceleration & deceleration. Showed off his crafty finishing at the rim by converting some tough floaters & layups in traffic. Capable shotmaker who proved that he could score on the perimeter when he was given the space. 

Toribola Babs-Ogundeji
2025 | Wing | CM3 

Babs-Ogundeji was a prospect who put together some impressive two-way flashes in Jersey. Long, rangy athlete who oozes with upside given his blend of fluidity, positional size & length. Leverages ample ground coverage to get downhill quickly while needing minimal dribbles to beat closeouts. Developing perimeter shooter who is capable of stretching the floor, although enhancing his consistency will be key to reaching his full potential. Switchable defender who slides his feet well & he utilizes his length to garner deflections.  

Christian Jeffrey 
2025 | Guard | New Heights Lightning

Jeffrey saw has seen his stock rise since Peach Jam concluded and he continues to trend upwards. He’s an athletic combo guard who is comfortable & effective playing on or off the ball. Explosive slasher who leverages his speed & burst to beat closeouts when driving to the rim. Flashed some shotmaking ability as a pull-up scorer inside the arc, however he had more success as a slasher this past weekend. UCF & Maryland both offered recently, although more programs should be getting involved down the road. 

Christopher Henderson

2024 | Guard | Team Takeover National 

Henderson thrived at running the show for Team Takeover National over the weekend in the final live period. He’s a physically mature lead guard who possesses plenty of “game-manager” ability within his skillset. Powerful handler at the point of attack who bullied smaller guards when forcing his way to the rim. A hard-nosed, rugged finisher who didn’t shy away from bigger rim protectors or size in the lane. The toughness & two-way productivity created a consistent impact on each outing.  

Shamiere Green
2024 | Guard | City Rocks EYCL

Green had a strong weekend for City Rocks EYCL group, however I was most impressed with his play on Sunday. He’s a quick athlete who was explosive off rip-throughs when slashing to the rim. His downhill playing style allowed him to open up the defense & opportunities for spot-up shooters on the perimeter. Green tended to be a willing playmaker with his ability to pass out of traffic or help defense in the lane. The explosive finishing also popped in Jersey and he wreaked havoc when applying extensive pressure on the defensive end.
