After a successful Friday with great opening night games we kicked things off bright and early Saturday morning.  Once again college coaches from across the country flooded the baselines to watch talented prospects go at it all day long.  Top prospects showed out and many players made a name for them self.  Here are some of the top performers and stock boosters that stood out to me.

Isaiah Rivera – 2020 (Quad City Elite 16u)
- Rivera has been playing well all spring but he took his game to the next level Saturday afternoon in Quad City’s win over Team GetShook.  He was picking his spots and getting what he wanted.  The 6-5 wing is skilled and knows how to score the ball in a variety of different ways making him a very hard match up.  He showed that he can bring the ball up and control the offense like a guard but also score with his back to the basket in the paint.  He holds an early offer from Southern but schools like Iowa, Michigan, Stanford, Iowa State, and many more are keeping tabs on the rising 2020 prospect.  Rivera finished with 23 points in the win over Team GetShook.

Carrington McCaskill – 2019 (REACH Legends 17u) - The 6-7 forward is one of the best dunkers in the whole association and he continues to show why throwing down impressive dunk after impressive dunk.  McCaskill is very active cleaning the glass on both ends of the floor especially on the offensive side where he can use his timing and athletic ability to rise up for put back slams.  Holding offers from Cleveland State, Buffalo, Kent State, and more you can expect McCaskill to continue to add to his offer list.  He finished with 13 points and 8 rebounds in REACH Legends win over 3D Empire.

Wesley Dreamer – 2019 (Martin Brothers 17u) - Dreamer had a very solid performance Saturday evening in Martin Bros win over Wisconsin Swing.  The 6-7 forward has a great size and length making him a very intriguing prospect in the 2019 class.  He runs the floor extremely well and finishes in transition at a very high rate.  He is tough to defend down low because of his strength and power and often finds himself at the free throw line.  He is a solid rim protector and cleans the glass well too.  Dreamer finished with a team high 17 points.

Connor Dillon – 2020 (Illinois Irish 16u) - This left-handed shooter was on fire for the Irish and always seemed to have an answer when his team called on him.  He is a deep ball threat who doesn’t miss often and can always find a way to get his shot off using the combination of his quick release and ability to create his own space.  Dillion finished with a team high 10 points in Illinois Irish 40-37 win over Martin Bros Select.

Gabriel Homsby – 2018 (Yanders Law 17u) - This 2018 prospect continues to see his stock rise and for good reason.  The slashing wing recently picked up an offer from UW-Milwaukee and don’t be surprised if other programs start to get more involved.  Homsby is one of the more athletic players in the association and proves it by consistently playing above the rim and putting his defenders in fear of being dunked on when he elevates up.  The 6-5 wing can defend multiple positions and always gives his max effort on both sides of the ball. 

Amar Augillard – 2021 (All In Athletics 15u) - One of the top 15u prospects in the association was on full display Saturday afternoon.  Augillard is very versatile and knows how to hurt his opponents in multiple different ways.  He isn't limited to what he can do offensively as he has proved he can score from all over the floor using his aggressive scoring mindset with the combination of his skill and athleticism.  The 6-4 wing will be one of the top 2021 prospects in the Midwest for the next couple of years if he continues to develop and work hard.  He finished with 15 points in a win over The Force. 

Brayden Dailey – 2021 (WI Swing 15u) - Dailey has been playing at a high level all spring long and Saturday was no different.  In a big win over a talented Martin Bros team Dailey was showing off his complete skill set.  The 6-5 forward uses creative moves to finish around the rim, makes the right passes, and can knock down shots at a high rate.  He is very active on defense using his length to disrupt passing lanes, block shots, and cause turn overs.  Dailey is a prospect to pay close attention to over the next couple of years as he is just scratching the surface of his very high celling.  

Harlond Beverly – 2019 (REACH Legends 17u) - It was another day at the office for one of the top prospects in the MIdwest.  Beverly is a long and athletic guard who does whatever it takes to help his team win.  He got off to a hot start scoring 11 of his team's first 13 points to help them get off to a good start.  He can score off the dribble, finish around and above the rim, and knock down outside shots at a high rate.  A very underrated passer, he is currently sitting at second in assists per game in the association with an average of 4.5.  Coaches from Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa State, and many more were courtside watching Beverly go to work.  He finished with a team high 18 points to go along with 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals.

Cole Nau – 2019 (Ray Allen Select 17u) - Nau is a leader who brings the best out of his teammates every single time they step out on the floor.  He is a very coachable point guard who knows how to be the leader of the team and take control when asked.  He is a knock down shooter with a very good-looking jump shot, he can create for himself off the bounce and he can shoot off the catch.  Nau has been hearing from multiple division 1 schools and his list of interests is starting to grow.  He finished with 8 points and a game high 6 assists in Ray Allen Selects big win over Colorado Chaos.

DJ Carton – 2019 (Quad City Elite 17u) - Carton has been very impressive all spring long and that is why he is getting the national attention he has earned.  The ultra-athletic point guard has showed the most complete game I have seen all spring long.  He attacks and gets to the rim as good as anyone, facilitates extremely well, can shoot the lights out when he gets hot, jumps out the gym, plays great defense, and is an overall leader/floor general.  There is no question why he holds 10+ high major offers from some of the best programs in the country including USC, Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Marquette, Missouri, etc. Carton finished with 17 points in Quad City Elites tough loss to MI Playmakers.

Donald Ferguson – 2022 (Team GetShook 15u)
- After watching this young prospect a couple of weeks ago at the opening weekend of the NY2LA GNBA league I was excited to watch him compete up an age level at 15u.  Even though he was the youngest player on the floor he was still one of the most productive.  Ferguson is a great lead guard who excels with the ball in his hands during clutch moments.  He was hitting big shot after big shot for team GetShook and almost led them to a 20-point comeback win but fell short in Overtime.  Ferguson finished with 15 points coming from five three pointers in an overtime loss to REACH Legends.

Evan Anderson – 2019 (3D Empire 17u) - Anderson had one of the most impressive performances of the morning.  He was scoring in all sorts of different ways but was most affective from beyond the arc.  The 6-0 guard has a very quick release making it very hard for defenders to stop him from getting his shot off.  He is a good ball handler and doesn’t turn the ball over often.  Anderson finished with a game high 26 points in 3D Empires win over AUSA Hoops. Anderson was knocking down shots all game long for 3D Empire in their tough loss to REACH Legends.  At one point he had all the college coaches buzzing after he hit a very impressive fade away shot off of one foot in the corner.  He proved that he can compete with good talent and opened up some important eyes while doing so.  Anderson hit 5 threes to help him finish with a game high 19 points in 3D Empires loss to REACH Legends.

Wendell Green Jr – 2020 (Michigan Playmakers 17u) - The rising 2020 prospect continues to have high level performances and is forcing scouts and division 1 coaches to take more notice.  Already holding early offers from Detroit and Oakland you can expect that list to grow soon.  Green is a max effort type player that motor never stops running.  He can score in a variety of different ways making it very difficult for his opponents to stop him.  Green finished with 27 points in the Playmakers big win over Quad City Elite.

Giovanni Miles – 2019 (REACH Legends 17u) - Miles was terrific for REACH in their big win over the talented and well coached Ray Allen Select team.  He was hitting his shots from all different spots on the floor and making his opponents pay for leaving him any type of space.  The 6-4 shooting guard has good size/length and he elevates high on his jump shot making it hard to defend.  Miles finished with a team high 17 points in REACH Legends win over Ray Allen Select.

Baylor Hebb – 2020 (3D Empire 16u) - Hebb brings that fire and energy that coaches love every single game.  The young prospect is an offensive threat that has a knack for scoring the ball.  He can hit the three-ball with consistency whether its him catching it off the pass or creating his own shot.  He has good handles and can make his defenders look silly while trying to find his way to the rim.  Hebb is a 2020 prospect that has potential to make some noise in the near future.  He finished with 26 points in a win over MN Comets Elite.

Sam McGath – 2020 (Ray Allen Select 16u) - McGath was huge down the stretch for Ray Allen Select in their close win over All-In Athletics.  McGath isn't the most athletic prospect but he has great tools and fundamentals that make up for it making him a very solid prospect in Wisconsin's loaded 2020 class.  He knocked down a couple of huge threes late in the game that gave his team the momentum they needed to close out the win.  He is very crafty around the basket and was getting to the foul line almost every time he attacked the rim.  McGath finished with 13 points in their win over All-in Athletics Saturday afternoon.

Noah King – 2020 (MN Comets Elite 16u) - The 6-2 guard has a very strong frame that he uses to his full advantage while playing the point guard position.  He gets to his spots, knows to post up smaller players, and is always making the right basketball plays all of which coach's love.  Defensively he showed that he can defend multiple positions and pick his opponents up for the full length of the floor.  King is a prospect that we will be watching closely in the 2020 class.

Anthony Washington – 2020 (WI Swing 16u) - The rising 2020 prospect continues to impress with solid performances coming out of him in almost every association game thus far.  Saturday evenings match up against Colorado Titans was no different.  The long guard is very athletic and loves to play above the rim where he can score by using creative finishes or by throwing down an impressive dunk.  The fact that he is still very raw and has a whole different level he can take his game too is probably the most intriguing part of Washington’s game.  He is one to watch closely in the 2020 class as he has potential to turn himself into a legitimate division 1 prospect.  

Drew Lutz – 2019 (MBA Select 17u) - Lutz is a sharp shooting guard who has the green light for the full length of the game.  His coach and teammates have the up most confidence in him when he puts ups shots and for good reason.  Coming into the weekend as the leading scorer in the association Lutz has been looking to carry that torch.  Saturday morning, he finished with 22 points in a win over the WI Blizzard and in the afternoon, he dropped a game high 25 points to help lead MBA Select to a win over Colorado Force.
