Malique Ewin, 2022 WF, Team YRN (15U): Long, strong, and very active during the morning session of day one at The Warmup, Ewin showcased his abilities to dominate the glass and lead the break in transition. His crisp passing, athleticism, and inside-out skill set make him really look the part as one of the best 2022 prospects in the southeast region. We won't be surprised to see Ewin playing at a high major program during his collegiate career.
Chunterron Word, 2022 WG, Bluff City Legends (15U): Word is a lanky, wiry guard that always seemed to be in the right place at the right time for his Bluff City Legends squad. He rarely forced anything on the offensive end and did a great job as a vocal leader on the defensive end. While he wasn't the most flashy player on the floor, his rebounding abilities, versatility on defense, and consistent shooting from deep allowed him to standout.
Tharon Locure, 2021 G, Beyond Ball (16U): While Locure may not have put the ball in the basket as some of his other teammates, he was crucial to their success in a win over Team ALL IN during the morning session of games on day one at The Warmup. His blurring speed in the open floor led to easy baskets for his teammates, while his patience and ability to control the tempo in the halfcourt setting kept the defense on their toes. His intensity on defense fueled his team and was one of the main reasons they were able to close out successfully in a tight game.
Colby Jones, 2020 G, Alabama Fusion (17U): Jones Is an excellent slasher and possesses great size and bulk for a guard prospect. His ability to get to the rim on command and load up the opposing backcourt with foul trouble was just one of the ways he made his presence felt during their first game of the weekend. His intensity on the glass also made a huge difference against a very active, athletic Woodz Elite squad. Holding offers from Harvard, Troy, and Yale among others, expect his stock to continue to grow.
