Here is part 2 of a few players you need to know from our 2028 watchlist…
Kadden Irwin (6’1/F/Belfair)
Kaden is still one of the most impactful frontcourt players on our list. He is emerging from being a role player and is showing his ability to produce across the stat sheet. His offensive game continues to evolve as he is showing a more consistent mid-range jumper. He is still highly active on the glass and doesn’t mind bringing a level of physicality to the court.
Camden Cooper (5’11/CG/Tre Mann Elite)
Cam is one of the most prolific scorers in the 2028 class. The lefty can get it done at all levels. He has an excellent ability to shake defenders and get free for jumpers and takes into the lane. He’s a nice catch-and-shoot player who can also create offense for himself and for others off the bounce. He’s a crafty scorer who can hit runners, short fade-away jumpers and can get anywhere on the floor he wants because of his high-level handles. He is a 2028 kid that is getting significant minutes and providing point production on the high school level.
Karl Mullins, Jr. (5’1/PG/Atlantic Christian Academy)
Karl is one of the most discussed players in the 2028 class because of his size and the success he continues to have. He is a lead guard that has a brilliant floor game and does a great job orchestrating. He is a talented player who knows how to set up his teammates and simultaneously, can create opportunities for himself. He is a player that garners a lot of attention, and he continues proving the naysayers wrong.
Boston Sheppard (5’6/PG/James Weldon Johnson)
Boston is a high-level PG that can facilitate and put his team in successful situations, and he can be a score-first PG that can go for huge numbers. He is a tough iso scorer as well as an extremely smart ball-handler in ball-screen action. Every time I have seen Boston play, the offense has been his to control and the tempo his to set. He is an alpha leader, and his team goes as he goes.
Kameron Mercer (6’0/CG/Edmond Sumner Select 2027)
What can I say about Kam other than he just keeps getting better every time I see him. He is physically maturing and developing at an alarming rate. His athleticism, handles, scoring prowess, and versatility continue to rise, putting him as one of the top players in his class. He is separating himself into being one of the toughest players to defend, as he can shoot over the top of anyone and has the ball-handling ability to get wherever he wants on the floor.
Trevor Jackson Duke (5’5/SG/’28/NYBA 2028)
Trevor is a player that I see quite often as I am in his neck of the woods a lot. His PG IQ continues to increase, and he has developed into a player with a crafty handle that keeps defenders off balance. He is a trustworthy ball-handler and initiator of the offense. He doesn’t have a lot of size, but his skill set has developed to where it is one of the things that gives him a distinct advantage when he faces off against opponents.
