AJ Williams
2026 | Wing | New York Rens EYBL

Top-125 2026 wing AJ Williams had missed some time with an injury, although he appeared to be finding his groove again rather quickly at the Summer Jumpoff. He’s a prospect that oozes with upside given his blend of size, length & offensive versatility. Rangy slasher who covers ground quickly, plus he flashed some shotmaking ability over the weekend as well. Fluid spot-up scorer who also possesses a smooth pull-up prowess & a high release point off the bounce. The explosive finishing in the open floor also caught my eye over the weekend. It was great to see him back on the floor and he produced flashes in bunches throughout the weekend.

Keiner Asprilla
2026 | Big | New York Rens EYBL

Asprilla will likely be entering our rankings in their next update due to the strides he continues to make & the long-term promise he shows. His blend of imposing positional size (7’0”), disruptive length and a sturdy frame allow him to be a heavy two-way producer on the interior.

Powell is another prospect who is in heavy consideration to enter our 2026 rankings in their next update. The Westminster School (CT) product initially popped onto my radar at the NEPSAC Showcase where he put up some big numbers. He carried that momentum down to Augusta & Peach Jam where he was a big factor in City Rocks run to the championship game. Powell is a lengthy athlete with a multilevel scoring arsenal & growing polish. Fluid pull-up scorer who is a tough mid-range scorer, plus his range extends out to the arc.

Top-30 2026 guard Dylan Mingo continues to develop at a steady rate while leading this PSA Cardinals group. The Long Island Lutheran (NY) product is poised to have a bigger role as a sophomore and he’s one to look out for.

Ryan Brzezanski  
2026 | Wing | Virginia Pride 

Brzezanski had a strong weekend and he’s another prospect who has plenty of upside to tap into. The blend of positional size and floorspacing caught my eye at first, however he proved to be a mismatch nightmare over time.

Fluid spot-up scorer with the range to stretch the floor which made him a dangerous weapon in the pick & pop. Performed consistently and at a high level against multiple tough teams in Jersey.

Marquis Newson
2027 | Wing | Philly Pride 

Newson popped onto my radar during our East Circuit this past winter with DPS, however he seemed to be quite comfortable while playing up an age division at the Summer Jumpoff. The Delaware native is a rangy & quick-twitch athlete who is a prolific slasher off the bounce. Covers ground quickly, utilizes minimal dribbles & attacks with plenty of speed off rip-throughs. Instinctual defender who is laterally quick & leverages his instincts to generate deflections when possible. Dangerous fast break igniter who can push the ball & finish in the open floor.
