Brandon Winton Brandon Winton 6'2" | PG Alcoa (football) | 2025 State TN (Alcoa)
Elite decision-maker. Brandon sees the pacing and the movement of defenders like a professional running back. He can go fast, but he plays exceptionally when dribbling slow and scouring.

Shane Cherry Shane Cherry 5'9" | PG Austin-East | 2025 State TN (Austin-East) was electric over the 2022 summer, and @PrepHoopsTN Top 10 ranking revealed his deserved reputation outpaced his peers.
