While the majority of my coverage thus far has been focused on Ohio and Kentucky prospects. However, I felt I needed to give some love to the Tennessee top performers as two championship programs flexed their muscles and showed why they are two of the best programs in Tennessee.
Jayson Nixon Jayson Nixon 6'1" | PG Brentwood Academy | 2023 State TN 6’1 PG Team Brandan Wright (Brentwood Academy)
Nixon impressed me as an elite defender for the Platinum champion Team Brandan Wright team. Has great vision in the half court and a clean dribble. Showed me confidence with his handle and facilitating his offense. Impressive 17U prospect with plenty of upside.
Calvin Goliday Calvin Goliday 6'3" | PG Hillwood | 2023 State TN 6’2 SG Team Brandan Wright
Goliday played one of his best games in the Platinum championship against Dayton Elite Black. Aggressive defensively and showed great lateral movement when it came to guarding some of Dayton Elite’s bigger guards. Slashed and found the paint while finishing at a high clip. Goliday might be a prospect worth following for Midwest schools.
Eli Finley 6’0 PG EAB 3SSB (Calloway)
Finley was a prospect with quite a bit of buzz on Twitter leading up to EAB’s game. The 6’0 guard showed me versatility as he could end up playing both guard positions. High IQ guard and especially looked good on the offensive end of the floor. Can fill up the stat sheet in a hurry.
Jeremiah Wilson 6’3 PG EAB 3SSB (Buckhorn)
Wilson brings great size at the PG slot and the southpaw was a leader for EAB as they dominated the Gold bracket. Great vision and facilitation skill for himself and teammates. Great in open space.
