Cam Bleshoy 6’3 F 2022 Pope High School
*HOT* We can’t praise Cam Bleshoy enough for his performance this weekend. On Saturday, Bleshoy was mentioned as one of the standouts and on Sunday he raised his intensity even more. Bleshoy was excellent rebounding the ball, very active on the defensive end, and he made tough plays down the stretch. Bleshoy was vital to T.R.U Elite’s late comeback against Hoop Phi in the championship game. He has ice in his veins and he showcased he is not afraid of the moment. He will be someone to keep an eye on this season for Pope High School.
Reco Trimble is 6’1 but plays like he is 6’11. He has a strong upper body and was able to overpower his defender for easy buckets. He plays end to end and is always involved with the play either making the assist by setting up his teammates or driving to the basket. Strong hands and rarely loses control. The Tennessee prospect stock will rise as the season progresses if he continues his strong play.
Justin Mitchell 6’3 2024 Norcross High School
Norcross High School is a known Georgia basketball powerhouse, and the Marathon Continues with Justin Mitchell. Mitchell was phenomenal for double trouble showcasing his all-around game. Mitchell made the right moves, at the right times that usually generated in positive plays for Double Trouble
PG Josh Unger 6’0 G 2023 Alpharetta High School
Unger was a clutch performer for the Milton Spurs. Unger showcased his ability to hit the long-range shot over zone defenses and finishes strong around the rim. Very clutch down the stretch and he makes the right decision with the basketball.
F Dastin Hart 6’3 2023 Cherokee High School
Hart showcased he plays well in the lane and uses his size to his advantage around the basket. He has a nice soft touch around the rim and rebounds well. On defense, he has the ability to force the offense to adjust their shot around the rim. Very solid player for Wood Elite Skillz Training and has a lot of upside in his development to be a key contributor for Cherokee High School this season.
