  14. My Journey 2025 – The group is deep and talented, The shooting of Mosley Stands Out!!!
  15. Geek Squad 2025 – Their backcourt has probably the grittiest two guard combination of anyone, they are toughest as nails and their play in traffic is second to none.
  16. Flight 2028- Brady & Ethan form a deadly combo at the guard positions.
  17.  Hoopademix 2028 – People will get to know this group down the road Tyson Hooks, young fella is all over the court. He leads a group that up and coming.
  18. EZ Work 2025-  Marcus & Syncere shoot it from deep, Barack & Isaias are guys that attack the rack.
  19.  Demons 2026- led by the slashing of Ashton and the shooting of Sotos they can play.

  21.  Illinois Swish 2025 – Hernandez & Calvin play up a lot so many sleep on them, but this is a tandom that people will be talking about for  years to come.
  22. Swinnie 2027 – They may not have size, but the talent at the guard position for this team is there, the backcourt is tough.
  23. Kessel Heat 2025- If you didn’t know you will the group is led by one of the best in the class Derek Bishop.
  24. HoopsAve 2025 – When looking for ball movement and knockdown shooters, let it be known this backcourt has that.
  25. We Still Ball 2027- getting to the rim and finishing in style, this squad has a couple of guards who can finish with the best of them.

Stock Risers

Oliver Gray

 

Here is a player who is fearless and thrives under pressure, I’ve watched young fella knock down some clutch shots of late and I’ve witness him hit some of the toughest long distance shots. Young Fella is one of those players who will fool you with his baby face looks. Let it Be Known Right Now!!! Get to know the name Oliver Gray 2026 young fella is a player and his Stock Is Rising. In our next update look for the name because it will definitely be in there. This kid puts relentless pressure on opposing defenses as he’s capable of putting the ball in the hole quickly.

Nathaniel Marshall

 

Nathaniel Marshall – 2025 – Young Fella is nimble on his feet, has footwork in the paint and a motor that makes him relentless on the boards, having just saw Nate up close he has grown a couple more inches and thus has taken over the spot of Top Post Player In 2025 @ this moment. Young Fella has game and his pedigree only makes him that much more of an intriguing prospect. ” Yep It’s In His Blood. We look forward to watching young fella this summer and expect him to show everybody in attendance @ Top Prospect Showcase Aug 21st. That he is that dude.

 

Vito Rocca

 

Young Fella showed he can shoot it, rebound, score in traffic and never seems to be in a rush no matter how hectic things around him are. Vito Rocca 2027 has a lot of game and is a prospect who shows upside. Make no mistake about it when updated rankings are released you will definitely see the name. Young Fella is an April Stock Riser and a player we look forward to watching play in the future.

Phoenix Fisher

Yes Suhhhhhhhhhh!!! here is one of the long slithery guards who has the ability to get where he wants on the floor with the ball, the kid who has the moves to make his defender slide across the floor. The kid who makes the crowd go “uwwwwwww did he just do that boy like that?” Phoenix Fisher 2027 is a problem on the offensive end, his long range shooting and handle are right up there with the elite in his class. Look for young fella to make his way into the updated class rankings when they are released. Also we expect to see young fella @ The Top Prospect Showcase Aug. 21st where many of the elite players in the midwest will be in attendance..

Promising Prospect # 44

“The Table Setter”

Ok All The Kids Are lined up 50 of the elite prospects. My First Pick, Give Me Him( everyone looks around puzzled and confused, but not knowing what I’m knowing) who Rykan? yep that’s my pick. Rykan Woo is a coaches dream. He plays the game with and understanding second to none in Middle School, he will do whatever a coach needs to get the win and he is the Ultimate Table Setter!! There are no better guards in Middle school at getting in the paint and causing havoc. Young Fella is the guard who can get the old school assist, he gets around his man off the dribble, defender steps up and he spoon feeds the bigs!! ,Yep He is a ” Table Setter” young fella is  the kid who understands how to set up his shooters with the subtle movement and then cross court a pass-through traffic for the easy shot. He’s is the kid when the coach instructs him to do something all you hear is Yes Sir Coach!! while there are many kids who can play, there aren’t many who make players better.  I’ve witnessed none better over the course of 2 years lead a team to as many wins or keep his team in contention as an underdog as Rykan, This past weekend I watched young fella lead his team to a NY2LA CO- Championship as they beat several teams including Indy Premiere where no one thought they had a chance. I got text after text and call after call saying. “: Man You Was Right, That Rykan A MF” all I said was yep I told he can play. The qualities he possess are all things that speak well down the line, add the fact that he is one of the best on ball defenders at his position in the class and you have a player. As I’ve told many people in Area, I think the class is a little down, there aren’t many who I would want on my team, but I know one thing I’m starting my team with Rykan Woo ” The Table Setter” Because I know one thing, he will do everything possible to get the win and he the ultimate teammate he wants all to succed. there have been times where he may have sat on the bench for various reasons unwarranted, but he never sat and sulked, he never complained, he cheered and rooted his teammates on. Game Recognize Game and young fella has it, it’s not where you’re from, who you play with, who you know that makes me say a player is good, it’s you game and impact on the floor. So Again If I have first pick give me Rykan Woo because he will make all the players around him better and they will all go through a wall for him and want to play with him. We would like to recognize Rykan Woo as our Promising Prospect #43 The Table Setter”

Promising Prospect #43

” He Something Different “

Maaaan if you haven’t seen Jaxson Davis 2027 you are missing a treat, I rarely write a Promising Prospect Article about a kid in 6th Grade. I wrote one for Amari Bailey, Patrick Baldwin, this early and that’s saying something yep ” He Is Something Different”. Young Fella is a poised combo guard who has been on the scene having equal success playing up a grade or two. He was the man in control of our past pound for pound number 1 team 2026 Illinois Ice who had won everything locally for 3 years and competed nationally very well. Young Fella has some Jalen Brunson( Dallas Mavericks) in his game. I”m not saying he is a pro, all I’m saying is at this stage he has the similar type qualities and impact as the former McDonalds All American. It’s remarkable how a kid so young can play with so much poise. He is a knock down shooter, a crafty ball handler who gets in the lane with his change of pace and he is as clutch as they come at the free-throw line under pressure. I have never with my own eyes seen this kid miss a free and I’ve seen this kid play over 50 games yep ” He Is Something Different”. A couple of weeks ago at National Tournament young fella poured in 51 in a highly contested game & believe me he was very efficient as young fella is very unselfish and looks for his teammates, I’ve never seen him force shots. You can Mark it down right now D-1 barring some sort of injury or illness. Yes I said it, and he is in 6th Grade. Yea for a guard that small it’s very rare to make a statement like that, but young fella has that ” Special In Him” right now he is clearly a top 3 guard prospect regardless of class and currently rated our number prospect in the class of 2027. We would like to scknowledge Jaxson Davis as our Promising Prospect # 43 “He Is Something Different”

Promising Prospect # 42

” Silent Killer

Melvin Bell

Sometimes you see a kid and say ” He Fits The Bill ” Yep Young fella is a kid you look at and say ” Next Level” I watched Melvin Bell ” Silent Killer”  tear up the youth league while in 7th grade playing up a grade against several of the premier 8th grade AAU teams last year. I said ” Young Fella Is NIIIIIIIICE”  too coach Tommie  look “you got one of them dudes!! ain’t too many better than that”.. Melvin was controlling the pg and getting anywhere he wanted on the floor and he did it effortlessly he was destroying opponents without saying a word. Fast forward to this year and I see young fella has grown like 5 inches and filling out I said Whoa!! young fella has gone from being nice to one of the Top Prospects in the class. I watched Melvin hit consecutive 3’s in Championship game in Indiana, after watching young fella finish at the rim in traffic several times the game before while others were talking trash, young fella let his game do the talking. Then The following week he showed he was virtually un-guardable as he shoot over the lil guards, went around the slower wings and had counter dribble moves against the long and athletic wings giving them people a quick 20 without a sweat. I said here is a kid who will enter high school and play Varsity Day 1. This is a kid 2-3 years from now you will see finishing plays on people’s head, a kid who blends ability to play 3 positions on the floor and a kid who appears to have room for several more inches of growth.. This is a kid while others are peaking out, he is exploding upward with a ceiling that not too many in his class have. Young Fella is currently rated a Top 5  Prospect in 2025 class rankings and could very well be the most sought after prospect in his class when it’s all said and done. This Ultra-Smooth Combo Guard is the Truth and has been giving teams problems, while all the kids are chirping and looking for attention, young fella is in the gym getting better. I know one thing, he doesnt talk trash with his mouth, he talks trash with his game young fella is a Killa on the court and we would like to acknowledge Melvin Bell as our Promising Prospect # 42 “Silent Killer”.

Promising Prospect # 38

Morez Johnson

” By Leaps & Bounds “

There is a kid whose game has grown so much as a player in the past year it’s crazy, I mean his game has expanded “By Leaps & Bounds” a kid who played in my league over a year ago whom I said ” He Has A Chance, He Has The Right Tools!!” yet young fella didn’t seem to have the desire, or assertiveness I knew he needed. Young Fella was teasing me with one or two moves a game and that would be it. I watched several games where he just ran up and down the floor and was a non factor on both ends, yes he looked the part but wasn’t living up too what ” I Knew He could Be” Our rankings came out I had young fella in the mid 30’s people would ask me, is he a 30’s player? I would say no he can be as good as everyone in the class  he is a Top 5 talent in the class, but this will motivate him, I’m Not Giving Him Anything, He Will Earn It With His Play..  I never mentioned that to young fella ,” I said it too a couple of coaches and shoe company affiliated AAU Coaches When They Asked. I told them that number aint accurate he is the player you need”. The Funny thing is Morez never took it as slight, he was honored too be on the list of 250 kids. Young fella used it as motivation and as a tool of   ” I’ll Get Better & has young fella been on a mission, every month he was in the gym getting better and adding to his game. He has gone from a big kid who could run the court and use his length on defense too a kid who can shoot it from deep, take his man off the dribble, score in traffic, defend the post, brings the ball up the court in transition and can either dish it off too a teammate or ” PUT IT DOWN ON YOUR HEAD!!!” I’ve witness young fella climb the ladder in the rankings destroying any and everyone on the court, a kid whose confidence is through the roof and this after being on teams where he was either looked over or sat behind players. Young fella didn’t pout, he got in the gym and got better and is Jr. Hoops Elite Player Of The Year & now currently our #2 Player In The Class Of 2024. We would like to acknowledge Morez Johnson as Our Promising Prospect ” By Leaps & Bounds

Ricky Moore 773 383-0972

Promising Prospect # 37

Carlos Harris Jr.

” He Nice With It “

There is a player when I see him he makes me say ” He Nice With It!!” a player who has a much talent as anyone in the class, ” Yes Sirrrr, He One Of Them Dudes”  yet young fella is a team player and plays the game to win so sometimes to others it may look like he isn’t being dominant that just because he is so unselfish and isn’t out here forcing things or playing for the crowd he is mature in his game. Carlos Harris is a coaches  and teammates dream he is all about the team. I’ve watched young fella put on a show and carry his team to victories scoring 25 & 10 on numerous occasions in the games against the strongest competition, the bigger the game the better he plays, he’s not the kid to put up false numbers he is the kid who lets all his teammates eat and when its time to takeover he has that “it gene” to do just that yep ” He Nice With It!!. When I say multi- skilled Carlos fits the bill, he can shoot from deep, he can facilitate for others and he is the best finisher through contact in the Class Of 2024.  Young Fella is also a leader on the floor he knows how too put his teammates in position too succeed, he gives them confidence and I’ve yet to ever see him down on any of his teammates  even after a bad play he is always encouraging. This past weekend young fella was on full display including several games where it was  Standing Room Only Highly intense game with several of the elite players in the class, he left no doubt he is a Top Player In The Class and one of the kids that has my phone ringing off the hook, one of the kids that can lead to a program resurgence or turn around and  one of the kids who has D 1 talent. Jr Hoops Elite would like too acknowledge Carlos Harris Jr as our Promising Prospect ” 37″ ” He Nice With It.

Promising Prospect # 36

” The Kid Is Special “

Antione Glasper 2024

The average eye can’t see it, the normal basketball fan might miss it, but the people who know basketball will understand right away ” ” The Kid Is Special!!!” There is a player walking around right now who is unassuming, quiet and sometimes bashful. But the kid game is The Truth Introducing  !!Antione Glasper  remember the name the kid  has all the tools, he can shoot it from deep, finish in traffic, mid range game is off the charts, has a burst with the ball in his hands  like no other in the his class, vision top tier and has the combination of instinctiveness and  elusiveness that makes you say ” Damn, That Boy  Don’t Know What He Just Did”. All while moving effortless like it’s just a day at the office, I’m telling you ” The Kid Is Special” . What makes young fella that much more special is he has no selfish bone in his body and he has never been a me first kid, he is equally as happy if his teammates are doing well, even tho his talent maybe superior he never tries too overshadow anyone. I’ve witness Antione  score 30 in a game in spectacular fashion, I witness young fella make moves where he makes his defender fall and then knock the shot down making the packed gym crowd go crazy, I watched young fella in standing room only game hit the game winner as time expires and everyone storms the court,  I watched the kid make players 2 grade levels above look like 5th graders, Yep!! ” The Kid Is Special”. Guess what, not in one instance has he gloated, cheered, talked trash, or even made a kid feel inferior, hell I didn’t even see him smile he just walked off the court like ” Business as Usual. Here is a kid we say barring injury will be playing D 1 basketball in a few years, young fella is currently rated in our Top 5 Prospects Class Of 2024 We would like to acknowledge Antione Glasper as  Promising Prospect #36 ” The Kid Is Special”

” There Is Not One”

Emmanuel Mosley

I don’t care who you have on your team, I don’t care where you are from, ” There’s Not One!!!! ” kid I would rather have shooting my ball in a clutch situation or game on the line than Mr. Emmanuel Mosley(2025) young fella is as clutch as they come. Last weekend young fella knocked down 2 game winning 3’s and led his team to the Final 4. A lot of people were amazed, but too me its been the norm, I’ve been watching young fella since I coached him in the showcase when he was in 5th Grade, I knew then, as he knocked down long range bombs and led us too a championship that this kid was a player. I said to myself ‘ Young Fella is going to be a problem when he gets older. EJ as known too many is a Quiet Assassin, young fella can run the pg spot as he has an exceptional IQ,  pinpoint passing and the ability to break his man down and spoon feed others  or young fella can slide over too the shooting guard and knock shots down with the best of them and create from the wing, here is a player a coach can use in a variety of ways. In an era where shooting is a premium he’s a very hot commodity.  I only trust so many people with the ball in their hands to make the right decision with the game on the line EJ is 1 of 6. There are also 3 kids I’d want taking the game winning 3 or the pressure shot with game on the line of which EJ is in that 3. So when you say clutch and trustworthy you get the point. If its a clear look and  game winning shot is being attempted if I had my money on the line “THERE”S NOT ONE!!!” I’d rather have shooting my ball in Middle School.

Poised & Polished

Jaedin Reyna

He’s been on the big floor, he’s played in pressure games, he’s heard the crowd, he’s knocked down the big shot, he’s made the extra pass, Yes Indeed!!! he’s a player. Introducing Jaedin Reyna whom I call Mr. Poised & Polished. If you watch young fella on the court you will see his skill level and understanding are very high. I’ve personally watched young fella take over a game in the crunch time and lead his team to victory scoring big buckets,  I watched young fella lock up on the defensive end and shut his man down on critical game deciding possessions. The old school people would say He’s a Gamer” Young Fella is a player every coach would want on their team because he plays the game to win. I’ve watched young fella over the years play and I’ve never seen him change his facial expression or show his coach up he’s always been very coach-able and listened too his coaches. There is no doubt in my mind here is a kid who we predict will be seeing some varsity minutes in his initial year of high school. There aren’t many guards in his class 2024 that possesses his talent and skill level, look for Jaedin too make his debut in our updated class rankings 2024 next Monday and definitely some people will be moving over because young fella is Top 10 worthy no doubt. When you’re in a tight game and the pressure is on you want this kid because he is Poised & Polished.
