Christian Jones 5’10” PG | PSAT Academy [JL3 - E16]
Jones is finally back healthy. That puts him back in the updated rankings. He is a super quick lead guard with great ball control. He can create for others as well as create for himself. Watching him control the floor at EYBL Session 3. It’s a no-brainer as to why he is a top prospect in his class.
Tyrus Rathan-Mayes 6’6” SG | Langham Creek [Cooz Elite 16U - PRO16]
Tyrus was been on a tear with Cooz Elite this spring. He is the biggest mover in the updated rankings. He can take his opponent off the dribble from the perimeter. He can knock down contest shots from the perimeter. He also likes to play above the rim. He looks better as an on-ball defender. His play has turned around the Cooz Elite 16U squad drastically.
Elijah Black 6’0” PG | Katy Jordan [Houston Defenders 16U - UAA]
Elijah was the second biggest mover in our rankings. He has grown taller since the last time we saw him. He is playing more physically and controlling the bump in the game not allowing it to take him off course. He has always been a solid on-ball defender, but now he has the physical tools to go with it makes him even tougher. He is also finishing through contact and looking to create for his teammates.
David Chong 6’0” PG | Dickinson [RL9 Elite 16U]
Talk about a physical guard in the half-court set. Running your offense through this guard in the half-court set is fun to watch. The way that he forces the defense to collapse and engage in everything he does opens up the game for his teammates. His physical play allows him to go through his opponent as well as use his speed on PNR set plays. He can get to the rim and finishes over the much bigger defenders. He also has a nice mid-range game on him.
Lucas Hobin 6’7” SG | Strake Jesuit [Joe Little Athletics 16U]
Lucas will be a huge piece for the Crusaders of Strake Jesuit this upcoming high school season. He is a known shooter and although teams know that he can hurt you from the perimeter. He still will give you 4-5 made trey balls every game at a really good percentage. He has been taking opponents' baseline and finishing above the rim as well. His game is starting to become more and more polished with the ability to score the ball from all levels of the floor.
