Prep Hoops Next made many stops at the Under Armour Future Circuit this past year and with the calendar switching over to the fall, it is now time to take a look at some of the top prospects we saw during our time in the gym. Below are a few prospects from the 2028 class that played on the Under Armour Future Circuit this spring and summer …
If ITrain would have ended up securing the victory in the championship game at the One Six in Las Vegas, NV, Devaugh Dorrough would have most likely been in discussion as the tournament’s most outstanding player as he was that good. Dorrough is currently a six-foot-four forward that plays with a lot of physicality in the low post and proved to have a huge advantage over his peers because of his size and strength. Dorrough’s teammates do a great job of getting him the ball and he takes advantage of every opportunity. On the defensive end, he has shown capabilities of being a rim protector and is constantly grabbing rebounds for his team.
Dashaun Harris walked away as the most outstanding player from the 7th grade division at the One Six in Las Vegas, NV after he single handedly took over in the 7th grade championship game for CM Elite to beat ITrain Elite. Whether it was connecting on a jumper, finishing at the rim, passing to an open teammate or creating defense into offense, Harris was doing it all and turned into a must watch player in the championship game. After his play in July, the five-foot-eight guard from Dayton, OH has officially been placed on a list of special guards to remember from the class of 2028.
Illinois Flight came up a little short in the 7th grade division durng their time in Las Vegas at the One Six but there were quite a few prospects from their group that stood out including Ethan Vahl who is from Chicago, IL. We have been able to evaluate Vahl quite a few times in the past few years and the encouraging thing about Vahl is he keeps sharpening his skillset and his body keeps on improving. Vahl is a very good shooter and scores most of his points from jump shots but again he has added more to his game as he can put the ball on the floor and attack the basket. Vahl has the make to become an intriguing prospect to monitor down the road from Illinois.
Team Thrill out of Baltimore is always one of the top programs on the Under Armour Circuit and this year was no different. Antwan Williams is a guard who was originally a 2027 prospect but he just reclassified into the 2028 class. Williams has good length standing at six-foot-one and uses that to defend multiple positions which is the side of the ball that he really prides himself of. On the offensive end he always makes the right pass, he does not force any shots and uses his high basketball IQ to always make smart decisions for his team. Williams could be the next prospect from Baltimore that starts making a name for himself on the national level.
Eli Wolfe is a five-foot-seven guard from Grand Rapids, MI, and one of the primary leaders of Northcoast Premier who advanced to the semifinals in the 7th-grade division at the One Six in Las Vegas, NV. Wolfe displayed an advanced skill set and set the tone offensively for his team. His ability to hit shots at a high level was shown multiple times during the spring and summer. Not many point guards from the 2028 class from Michigan are as advanced as Wolfe right now, which is why we are very excited about his future.
