Check out my analysis on the real GameChangers who I got to get a look at here in Dallas this weekend! These talented prospects shined every second they were on the court, and are really starting to turn heads with their play. Do not be surprised when you see these names pop up everywhere once the season starts to get rolling…
2026 6’4 Frisco Lone Star High School (DriveNation)
Trent was incredible during his time on the court at the PrepHoops Texas Freshman Showcase. Perry looks to have all of the tools that a college coach could want at the next level. Not only does he have a great frame already, but he sees the floor like a point guard, and moves into space and forces the defense to react. He constantly manipulated the defense with his positioning and his handle, getting into the teeth of the paint and scoring at will at the rim. He is a natural finisher on the break, or if he has space to take a single step within the half court before rising up. He nearly put down two between the leg dunks on the fast break!
He is a smooth scorer who is not afraid to rise up in his defenders grill and punish him from beyond the arc. I was blown away with the touch he displayed from beyond the arc, both off the catch but more impressively off the bounce. His ability to constantly score from the wings or the top of the key allowed his team to get up big in just a few possessions. It seemed nearly everyone in attendance took a chance on guarding him, and he punished smaller guards down low and took bigger prospects off the bounce at will.
Defensively, he slid his feet and forced his opponents to change their angles to the basket, while also using his long arms to poke the ball free and run the other way. He baited his opponents into terrible passes by quickly exploding into the passing lanes and running the other way in transition. He is a natural rim protector using his size as well, constantly deflecting his opponent’s shots and chasing down kids who thought they had a free lane to the basket. Perry is a name you have to keep your eye on over the next few years. Everyone in the country will know his name sooner rather than later, believe that.
2026 6’4 St. Michael Catholic Academy (Austin)
Bo was stout during his time on the court, through his impressive play down low but more importantly his creativity he displayed with his handle and ability to move laterally. I was blown away with how he was able to run up and down the court, and affected the game on both ends of the court. He is great at scoring across all three levels, calmly scoring off the bounce and off the catch. He is great at getting into the teeth of the defense, and stopping on a dime to score using a pull up jumper in the mid-range or a floater! He has all the tools to be an elite offensive weapon over the next few years, and is joining a good young crop of talent at St. Michael!
He is going to be a problem as he continues to grow and develop. I have been very impressed with how easily he scored off the bounce at his size. He showed an array of moves and step backs to create space from his opponent. I would like to see him continue to stay aggressive on both ends of the court, and do not settle for shots on the perimeter as much! It is not a problem by an means, but there were a few instances in which he could have taken a defender with his back to the basket. I know I will be keeping tabs on Ogden as he continues to grow.
2026 6’5 Liberty Frisco High School
Gilbert has an incredibly impressive body at this stage in the game, standing at a full 6’5 already and has great strength on his frame already. He is great at using his size to his advantage, especially with his back to the basket. He clears space and punishes them as he gets to his spots with his back to the basket. A consistent finisher down low, he is great at cleaning up the offensive glass and being in the right spot for an easy dump off pass after his teammate draws the attention of the big.
There were multiple instances where he showed his heads up play style, making the right outlet pass up the court and also cutting the defense apart out of the high post. He had one play where he put a football style pass right on the money to hit a streaking teammate. He displayed a solid handle for his size as well, handling the ball in the half court and getting into post moves from it with ease.
Defensively, he rejects shots and more importantly contests on the perimeter all the time! I would like to see him work on boxing out, he is good at getting into the position to box someone out but does not finish it. He needs to work on really sealing them with his frame and weight and keeping them from having a chance to leap over him or even get it if it goes over their heads. With his frame, he could easily be pushing kids back to the three point line! Once he gets more aggressive every time a shot goes up, he will easily collect fifteen plus rebounds per game over the next few years.
2026 6’4 Bosqueville High School
Tre is an incredibly fluid prospect who can play the 3-5 with ease. He possesses great shot mechanics for his size already and confidently scored across all three levels of the floor. I was most impressed with how well he was able to quickly get off shots from the perimeter, he was always ready to catch and shoot from the corners and wing positions. His dynamic ability to calmly score no matter who was defending him was very impressive. He dominated smaller defenders on the interior and was not afraid to step out and show off his range from beyond the arc.
Tre is a strong defender down low, calmly blocking shots and forcing his opponents to second guess their decision on the way to the rim. He changed his opponents shot angles or just flat out sent their shot out of play. I would like to see him focus on his intensity on the glass, there were times where he got lazy and did not box out as hard as he possibly could. He has all of the tools to become a dynamic weapon at the next level, especially as he continues to grow his handle and develop his game.
