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 Eastern Hills High School
Alex is a high level guard who has been making noise throughout his play in the EYBL circuit and other showcase events. His agility and speed with a live dribble was very impressive, constantly knifing through the defense to get to his spots. He is a talented three level scorer who can easily shoot over most guards who attempt to defend him. He has a killer crossover and really does well by creating separation with his handle. He steps into shots and hits them at a high level, but is a skilled scorer with a live dribble beyond the arc as well. I was very impressed by how well he was able to handle the ball at his size, and his agility to get around his opponents really stood out. He uses his length well to keep the defender on his hip and then finish at the rim. I would like to see him work on taking the easiest or best look every time down, at times he settled into tough step back three pointers, which he did hit a high level, but I would like to see him be more patient and work on attacking more in the mid-range and at the rim.
2026 6’2 Cibolo Steele High School
Logan is a high level guard who can effortlessly score across all three levels of the court, but more importantly defends at a high level as well. He showed an ability to play on and off the ball, and scored in bunches off the catch. He is a real threat to score from beyond the arc, and as soon as the defense pressure him on the arc he flies by his defender with a head-fake and a quick crossover and gets to the rim. He is a consistent and confident scoring option, and his team leaned on him whenever they were in a rut scoring. His work on the defensive end really stood out, getting underneath his opponent’s skin with his intense on ball defense. I would like to see him continue to work on attacking the rim and finishing strong.
2026 5’6 North Crowley High School
Billy is a smart playmaker who can create offense for himself or his teammates every time down the court. He showed an ability to play on and off the ball, but has great vision and feel for the game. He made great pinpoint cross court passes to set up his teammates, and really saw the floor at a high level within the half court. He maneuvered around defenders into open space and forced second and third defenders to step up on him. He displayed a soft runner in the lane, and finished strong at the rim when cutting backdoor without the ball. He is a great shooter off the catch, knocking down multiple three pointers and got plenty of space through his movement off ball. Crocket is a very smart player at this stage in the game, and I am intrigued to watch him grow and create as he continues to grow.
2026 5’10 Frisco Lone Star High School
Masa is a skilled slasher who knows how to get into the teeth of the defense and make the right decisions, whether that is attacking the rim hard or firing the best kick-out pass to his shooters on the perimeter. I was very impressed by how he was able to hang in the air and finish at the cup. I was more impressed by his overall vision and ability to create opportunities off of the attention he drew with the ball in his hands. His natural ability to create offense is a great sign for his growth going forward, and I am interested to watch how he develops. I would like to see him work on attacking the second and third levels off the floor with more consistency.
