Inspired Athletics really proved a lot at Prep Hoops Next NHR State Tournament. They went 4-1 and lost to the 14U champions — PJ Hoops 2027 — in the semifinals. They also have some notable prospects to mention.
Aiden Green – PG – Aiden is a confident player with the ball. He’s confident with his handle, passing, and ability to take advantage of his matchup. Gets down in a stance defensively, and will try to create turnovers by his opponents. By my crystal ball, I think he molds into a college prospect at the point guard spot. Already advanced, in terms of skill and understanding. In terms of his play-style, I think his game has a Derrick Rose feel to it.
Tanner Kratcha – Wing/F – Tanner played smart and was also productive on the court. He’s got some decent length to him and he’s a valued asset to the 2027 Inspired Athletics squad. He’ll defend, board the ball, and can shoot the rock on the other end.
David Mack – G – Mack came to play and showed an offensive playmaking style of play. He was looking to penetrate and be a threat at all times. Had to have someone on him tightly, with help defense in place. He has handles to translate to a scoring point guard and a scoring 2-guard. Advanced offensive skills and ability to create in various ways. He thrives off of breaking down his on-ball defender, then scoring the ball.
Kyson Keller – G/Wing – Keller has great length and long arms. Great overall quickness on the court, to go with his length. A three-point threat that is money off the catch from deep.
Austin Dryburg – F – Dryburg seems like he could translate to an interior prospect or a wing with size. He’s quick and has good size. He flies all over the place, defensively. A good leaper that gets good air. He’s physical inside and can move on the perimeter. Rebounded well and controlled the paint for Inspired Athletics.
