Mustapha Muhammad – Powerhouse MN 2027
6’6 7th grader is a really intriguing prospect. He has a developing skillset. He runs the floor well.He has good coordination and fluidity in his movements. He impacted the game with his size and length. A strong rebounder and shot blocker. Can step out and knock down shots from deep. He is a good athlete. If he can continue to improve he has a really bright future. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him playing D1 ball down the road with further development. He has all the tools and athleticism to do it.
Emmanuel Oyesanmi – Team Tyus 2028 Black
The 6’2 6th grader stood out amongst the rest. His size and length were too much for Wisconsin Elite to handle. He dominated from start to finish. Very intriguing prospect for a 6th grader. The sky’s the limit for him honestly. His potential is through the roof. With continued growth and skill Development, he has a chance to be a really good player in high school and beyond.
Jayden Stephens – Iowa Barnstormers 2028
The 5’8 guard showed an array of moves on the offensive end. His blend of change of pace dribbles and smooth crossovers proved to be too much for the opposition. He got into the paint at will. He controlled the tempo and helped his team secure the win. Looks to have a bright future at the point guard position.
Marquan Morgan – Iowa Barnstormers 2028
Marquan used his length and athleticism to disrupt the opposing team all game. He’s a really good defender. He set the tone and made plays on the offensive and defensive end. His energy and toughness really stood out.
Dane Skime – MN Lightning 2026
Everything he does is so smooth and effortless. Very calm demeanor and plays with a lot of composure. An ambidextrous ball handler. He gets to the paint at will. I thought he was the best player on the floor for Minnesota lightning 14U. One of the better guards I saw at the event. Excellent playmaker and passer of the basketball. He impacts the game without scoring. He needs to develop an outside shot and protect the ball better. With that being said I liked what I saw from him. With added size and strength I think he could be a D1/D2 kid by the time he is a senior.
Caleb Akinbolu – MN Lightning 2026
Good athlete will attend Rochester Lourdes in the fall. Created turnovers with his quick feet and long reach and got a lot of easy layups . Really dominated the game defensively. Looks like he will be a good high school player.
Michael Pratt-Hassan – Dallo 2027
Really good ball handler with a good feel for the game. Looks really promising for a 7th-grade lead guard. Has an Ideal point guard build. Made play’s for his team all weekend. With added size and strength I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a scholarship level guard by the time he is a senior.
Gianni Artisan-Skime – MN Crossfire 2026
Looks to have a good feel for the game.Good ball-handler. Sees the floor well. He needs to get stronger but there is a lot to like about him.He has good size at 6’1 170. He should be an impact player next year at the varsity level.
