Phoenix, AZ – The Prephoops Next Circuit came to Phoenix for War In The Valley. The event took place Saturday, April 10th, and concluded Sunday, April 11th with bracket play. Over 35 teams participated in the event featuring teams from California, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. It also featured several talented wing players. In this article, we take a look at some of the top Wings from the event.
Brian Townsend 6’4 SF Progress Feels Better 2025 – The “Chef” As Townsend is so aptly named, was cooking all weekend. He wasn’t playing games when he touched the ball, the 6’4 wing was in attack mode, living downhill. He also played with good patience and showed a high understanding of the game. When teams went zone, Townsend would catch and face from the high post before continuing his relentless downhill assault to the basket.
Mason Abittan 6’1 SF All Vegas 2025 – Abittan is a smooth scorer. Offensively he definitely checks the good at every box. It was refreshing to watch a player utilize the mid-range, however that didn’t stop him from knocking down his share of 3’s. He was good off dribble drives, showing enough handle to get into the lane, and enough IQ to make a quick decision when it came to pulling up or going all the way to the rim.
Cameron Dyer 6’1 SG JB White Elite 2025 – Dyer is certainly a bucket. The JB White guard has used the PrepHoops Next Circuit as his personal coming-out party. Dyer, scored in transition, created for himself, and knocked down shots when left alone. The long-limbed wing has the type of frame and skill set to develop into a prototypical H.S wing scorer.
Amir Jones 5’11 SG Team Dojo 2026 – I watched TD play 3 times, everytime I did, Jones was finding a way to get buckets. He was terrific when slashing to the basket, and did a nice job of avoiding charges by sliding over and utilizing an in-between game. He always seemed to be out ahead of the pack finishing in transition.
Jaylin Conrad 5’10 SG Team Dojo 2026 – It seemed like when Jones wasn’t getting a bucket for Dojo, Conrad was there to pick up the slack. They have similar body types as Conrad is a lean, long-armed wing. He also was quick enough to get out in transition and to get by defenders with his first step. His buckets came around the rim, and he did a terrific job of finishing in traffic and through contact.
Jayden Gray 5’11 San Diego Prospect 2026 (featured image) – Gray has an advanced frame and he knows how to use it. It’s almost unfair to label him a wing because he did everything for the Prospects this weekend. He handled, like a point, and grabbed boards and banged like a big. Ultimately, he’s a downhill, lane filling scorer, and was one of the best wings at the event.
Cameron Riggins Brown SF D1 Minnesota 2025 – I thought CRB did a terrific job of being active and staying in attack mode. He would go multiple possessions without touching the ball, and then all of a sudden grab a rebound and explode from end to end finishing at the rim. He showed good footwork and the ability to finish through contact throughout the weekend.
