The Coast to Coast Prep School Classic hit the hardwood in Wisconsin this past weekend.  Here’s a quick rundown of five standouts that made their presence felt…

Note – Not listed in any particular order

2021 Michael Foster Jr - Hillcrest Prep (AZ)
Foster was dominant at times over the weekend and looked the part of a future lottery pick. At 6’10 Foster can put the ball on the floor and has a soft touch on his jumper with range. He finished at the basket, is a fluid athlete and showed off good vision. The next step for Foster will be simplifying the game as he has a tendency to take one too many dribbles and fade away at times. Bottom line, Mike Foster is a special talent with a bright future at the next level. 

2023 Jared McCain - Hoop Nation (CA)
McCain was the best shooter in an event full of snipers, and highlighted his weekend with a 35 point performance on Saturday in which he knocked down 9 threes. He has great mechanics, a quick release and showed range out to 25 feet. McCain competed defensively and was a big reason his Hoop Nation squad finished 3-0 for the event. McCain will run with Team WhyNot on the Nike EYBL circuit and is a sure fire high major prospect. 

2021 Jamiya Neal - Hillcrest Prep (AZ)
Jamiya Neal is a 6’6 combo guard who showed the ability to play on and off the ball at a high level. Committed to Arizona State, Neal was at his best as the primary ball handler for Hillcrest, getting into the paint, finding open teammates and keeping the ball moving offensively. He also showed explosive athleticism with some highlight real dunks in transition and knocked down jumpers. A very impressive prospect I think Neal’s best basketball is in front of him and has the potential to be a breakout star in the PAC 12. 

2021 William Young - Premier Academy (TX)
William Young had a strong weekend for Premier Academy including a 35 point outburst on Saturday night vs Hoop Nation. A strong physical PG standing about 6’2, Young has a quick first step and excelled in the midrange hitting a variety of pull up jumpers. He also did a good job of penetrating and finding open teammates when the defense collapsed. Young looks the part of a scholarship prospect at the division 1 level. 

2023 Kylan Boswell - Hoop Nation (CA)
Kylan Boswell impressed all weekend with his steady play and poise in the backcourt for Hoop Nation. You can’t speed him up and he was able to use pump fakes, sidesteps and stepbacks to create space to get off his jumper. Boswell is also a tenacious competitor and really brought the energy on the defensive end. An Illinois native, look for Boswell to start to create some buzz nationally over the next year. High major prospect all day.
