Lean, lithe, long. Samuel Willoughby III Samuel Willoughby III 6'6" | SF Fayetteville (football) | 2025 State TN is a wing scorer with upside.
Grayson Burleson Grayson Burleson 6'4" | SF Summertown | 2025 State TN is a fantastic baseball player, though he started as a freshman for Summertown basketball too.
Jaiden Claybrook Jaiden Claybrook 6'5" | SF Antioch | 2025 State TN (Antioch) makes his PrepHoopsTN ranking debut. Great size. Plays a little more power forward now than anything. His agility suggests he will eventually both attack and defend on the wing.
Juice Eleam Juice Eleam 6'5" | SF Knoxville Catholic | 2025 State TN (Knoxville Catholic) Physical specimen.
Chazaiah Curry Chazaiah Curry 6'5" | SF Harding Academy | 2025 State TN (Harding Academy) is wildly athletic.
Kristopher Carroll Kristopher Carroll 6'4" | SF FACS | 2025 State TN is the best long-term prospect for the FACS rebirth. Gone are the Five Wonders. Enter the Four Crusaders.
Christian Brown Christian Brown 6'6" | SF Franklin | 2025 State TN fell from #4 overall to #5 overall to make way for the 6-foot-10 Cade Bennerman Cade Bennerman 6'10" | PF Father Ryan | 2025 State TN . Brown is now 6-foot-6 and originally debuted after his June showing for BCAT 100. Insane athleticism. Needs work on outside shot.
Tennessee 2025 Rankings
Cade Bennerman Cade Bennerman 6'10" | PF Father Ryan | 2025 State TN did not play in the Cougar Classic, so his latest PrepHoopsTN in-person evaluation occurred in July. You can’t teach size.
George MacIntyre George MacIntyre 6'5" | SF Brentwood Academy (football) | 2025 State TN moves like a spry college “3” now. His shooting range is 15′-20′, expert from 8′-12′. Sincerely, MacIntyre owns an outside shot at playing professional basketball somewhere in the world. Alas, football is apparently his calling.
Jayden’s ceiling was apparent early in his teen years. Fall 2021, Goodpasture Head Coach Adam Sonn dressed him alongside Xavier Shegog, Isaiah West Isaiah West 6'3" | SG Goodpasture | 2023 State #216 Nation TN , Jack Carter Jack Carter 6'6" | SG Goodpasture | 2023 State TN , King Keary King Keary 6'2" | PG Goodpasture | 2025 State TN , etc. Jones’ physical gifts are many. Beyond tremendous lift and touch from the mid-range Jones possesses a unique low-block skill package with a mature turnaround jumper.
