Bonilla was one of the stronger shooters during this event and he had advanced relocation skills without the ball in his hands. He’s a consistent spot-up shooter who had the offensive versatility to be utilized in a variety of offensive sets. The 6-1 guard is a capable transition shooter who used his off-ball feel and relocation skills to take advantage of transition opportunities.

The future Black Bear could give Maine some perimeter firepower early on in his collegiate career.

2023 | Guard | Worcester Academy (MA) | Marquette Commit

Norman has made steady improvements in his game since last summer and he played well during the National Prep Championship event. The Marquette commit is a tough, two-way guard who is as tough as they come on both ends of the floor. Offensively, he’s a potent mid-range scorer who can operate out of the pick & roll or in isolation situations. The 6-3 guard is a fluid space-creator that has the dribble moves to create space for pull-up jumpers. Possesses the shooting range to score from behind the arc whether it’s off the dribble or in spot-up situations.

The Drake commit erupted for 32 points against South Kent (CT) on Thursday and led his team on a deep run. He was the most impressive and consistent prospect at the event in my eyes despite there being a handful of nationally ranked players in attendance. Skilled shotmaker with notable space-creation skills and solid positional size for a lead guard at 6-3. Dangerous isolations scorer who has the ability to score from multiple levels at a high volume. The Oklahoma native has a long wingspan which makes his shot very difficult to block on top of his dribble counters. Energetic defender with quick hands who wasn’t afraid to defend bigger opponents off the bounce or on the interior. Drake got a steal in Overton and he could step into an impactful role early on for the Bulldogs.
