The Prep Hoops Next Circuit began Southwest Region action last weekend in Houston. PHN has a full team of scouts on hand to take in the action. Keep it locked to PrepHoopsNext.com all week long for the coverage. The Director of the Prep Hoops Circuit, takes us through 20 of the most impressive performers from the weekend.
Cameren Paul | 2025 | Team FOE | Wing
Paul has one of the best potentials of any players we scouted this weekend. The length and build of his body translate to a dominant Wing at the next level. Thriving off getting to the basket Paul can create with the best of them. Not only did he score well with the rock in his hands, Paul passes extremely well. As his motor increases Paul will continue to trend upward with great development.
Davon Scott | 2025 | Team FOE | Guard
Scott was the glue to Team FOE this weekend coming up with clutch plays down the stretch. Shooting and defense is his forte. Scott moved very well without the ball opening up shots for himself at opportune times. What he did over and over that will go largely unnoticed was his unselfish passing.
Jayden Domino | 2025 | BBSS | Wing
Domino was a fighter inside for boards despite being undersized many times. He held his own with great intensity and will power. Domino scored at all three levels giving BBSS a big threat teams had to pay attention to.
Chase Coleman | 2025| BBSS | Guard
Coleman is small in stature but big in shooting! The young man can flat out shoot the cover off the ball. When Coleman catches some confidence seeing his ball splash through the net it’s over.
Henry Estes | 2025 | Team FOE | Forward
Estes was big time in the paint doing the small things getting stops defensively without fouling, rebounding, and finishing when given opportunities. Estes is a strong prospect who was great at playing to his strengths consistently this weekend.
Ian Rizo | 2025 | ProSkills San Antonio | Guard
Rizo plays with a swagger about him on the court walking around with great confidence that follows him into his shooting. Once he sees the first shot fall look out it’s going to be a long day for the defense.
Tee Bartlett | 2025 | Houston Hoops Blue Chips | Post
Bartlett was a beast in the paint using his tall strong frame. He’s full of potential to be a very special prospect. What stands out the most is his motor many big guys at Bartlett’s age are locked in for some of the time but not all of the game. He’s grabbing boards, blocking shots, finishing strong inside and more. Bartlett is going to be a name to know for the future.
Alejandro Aviles | 2025 | Houston Blue Chips | Forward
A very skilled Forward who doesn’t get enough credit is the best way to describe Aviles. It was impressive to see a guy at his size and age be able to take the rock and create space for a jumper or drive to the rack. Aviles is athletic, long and full of upside.
Chase Crawford | 2025 | Drive Nation Houston | Forward
Crawford was a very active prospect on the boards. Going up against some of the biggest and best posts in the country Crawford used his speed to his advantage. He plays with the heart of a lion in the paint. Last but not least we have to talk about the way he finished inside amongst the tall trees.
Amari Reed | 2025 | Southern Assault | Forward
Reed was one of the best rebounders of the entire weekend. The way he sought out the ball with both ands and high pointed the basketball is something many high schoolers struggle to do. Truthfully Reed has a great knack for tracking the basketball. We would be wrong to not also admit he was great at finishing inside around the rim and adjusting shots in defense.
Garrett Bosch | 2025 | Southern Assault | Guard
With the size of Bosch to go along with his skillset he’s one to remember his name going forward. Gliding with the rock in his hands, Bosch made sure everyone saw just how easy it was for him to create and finish. Bosch can shoot a little as well. Keep an eye out for him coming to a gym soon.
Kobi Loonzi | 2027 | Nene Elite Gold | Wing
We list Loonzi as a Wing because long term that’s probably where he will end up playing. He’s a huge glue guy! As the biggest player on his team he does a lot of post work grabbing boards, finishing inside, playing good defense. However, what was really enjoyable about Loonzi is how well he handled the ball and shot it. With continued to development Loonzi will be a problem going forward.
Dylan Bynum-Jones | 2027 | Nene Elite | Point Guard
Bynum-Jones was absolutely electric with the rock in his hands. The shiftiness mixed with his quick burst had defenders sitting in quick sand. He did a great job of finishing inside each time he got an opening. Big time playmaker. Remember his name.
Alex Teahen | 2027 | Nene Elite | Wing
Teahen is a knock down shooter from the outside. Legitimately there was never a game he went cold from behind the arc. With any opening he made the defense pay.
Madden Hill | 2028 | Houston Hoops Blue Chips | Point Guard
The name “Madden” had my attention looking through the roster before the game. Hill lived up to expectations of his awesome name. Madden was phenomenal this weekend doing it all for his squad. He can create with the best of them, finish in traffic, drop a dime to a teammate, block a shot and so much more. Hill though small in stature played like the biggest kid on the court.
Bryson Campbell | 2028 | Houston Hoops Blue Chips | Guard
Campbell was the “Robin” to Madden this weekend making big time plays at the biggest moments. He starred on defense forcing a ton of turnovers with his quick feet and hands. This young man plays with an extremely high motor.
Daniel Lovato | 2025 | JB White | Forward
Lovato was everywhere on the court tracking down rebounds. He was one of the best rebounders we saw all weekend out of any age group. He was also super active with his hands on defense, collecting four steals to go with multiple double-digit rebound games. His premiere stat-line consisted of a 19 point, 17 rebound effort.
Kayden Edwards | 2025 | Southern Assault | Guard
Edwards did it all for Southern Assault in the scoring department. It didn’t matter what level it was Edwards was scoring a bucket. He is quick off the bounce with a beautiful looking jumper. The unselfishness in his play being willing to get the ball to open teammates makes him even tougher to stop.
Jaylan Steptoe | 2026 | JL3 Elite | Wing
Steptoe caught our eye on defense coming up with several key stops for JL3 late in the game. He was also willing in another game to guard a post player who was near 6’7. Using his athleticism he fought hard to defend his turf and come down with important rebounds.
Beau Porter | 2026 | JL3 Elite | Point Guard
Porter thrives off making plays with the ball in his hands for teammates. He ran the floor with the best of them setting up his guys for easy buckets. He can score now too now. Porter thrives off getting to the basket and finishing inside.
