The Adidas 3SSB Championship took place this past week at Rock Hill Sports Complex in Rock Hill, SC, and things were as exciting as you would imagine and chock full of talent playing in front of hundreds of college coaches. Here’s a look at part two of the 17U standouts from the event.
Tarique Foster | 6’6” WF | NY Wiz Kids 2023
Foster was fantastic when I watched the Wiz Kids, as he brought tons of energy and looks like he’s starting to come into his own on the offensive end of the floor too. The 6’6” wing has a great frame and is strong when he gets downhill, he hits the offensive glass for extra opportunities and he can guard the other team’s best offensive threat as well. He plays with great energy and was productive across the board, and as he continues to develop his skillset he still has his best basketball ahead of him.
| 6’6” WG | NY Wiz Kids 2024
Moore is one of the top scoring two guards you’ll come across in the 2024 class on the east coast, as the 6’6” wing has a great feel for scoring the ball from multiple spots on the floor. He is a dead eye shooter from deep who can get hot and fill it up in bunches, he can put it on the deck and get to spots and make shots over people and he’s strong enough to get in the lane and finish around the rim. He’s a natural athlete with good size and his scoring ability translates to the next level well.
| 6’9” C | Arkansas Hawks 2023
Vice is a guy I have tracked ever since I saw him as a freshman at Blacksburg High School in VA, and he’s a stock rising big who does a lot of things that translate immediately but also has a lot of room to get better moving forward. He moves very well both running the floor and moving laterally to stay in front and challenge shots, he can stretch the floor and has a stretch type of game with his perimeter skillset and he’s a very good passer as well. He’s a good athlete that should continue to fill out moving forward and when it all clicks he could be a very good player at the next level.
Braeden Shrewsberry | 6’3” WG | Indiana Elite 2023
The Penn State commit and son of Penn State Head Coach Micah Shrewsberry, and he showed he’s not heading to the Big 10 on some nepotism stuff but because he can flat out play. He’s a high IQ wing who has good feel on both ends of the floor, he shoots it well from deep and moves well off the ball to get open and he rarely makes mistakes when he has the ball in his hands. He’s a gritty competitor and a knock down shooter who has tools that will translate immediately.
| 6’4” CG | Indiana Elite 2023
Imes is also headed to Penn State with Shrewsberry, and if what they showed this past week is any indication they’re going to be a tough backcourt to deal with in the Big 10. The 6’3” combo has a mix of toughness and skillset that makes him very productive and he makes winning plays on both ends of the floor. He can knock down shots consistently from deep off the catch and the midrange on the pull-up, he can get in the lane and make plays for others consistently and he brings a winning attitude and leadership to his team too.
