6’8 Tyler Bey – Oakland Soldiers 
Tyler Bey had hands down the best individual performance that I watched over the weekend in Louisville, scoring 35 points in a win over Florida Rebels on Monday on 14/16 shooting from the field. Bey is a wiry 6’8 wing who has some wiggle to him and was able to slash to the rim off the dribble and use his length to finish in traffic around the basket. He has real guard skills with the size on the wing that makes his long-term upside very intriguing. Bey also showed a nice shooting touch knocking down 3 threes and impacted the game defensively with his length and versatility. Although he needs to continue to fine tune his skillset and tighten his handle, don’t be surprised to see Bey show up on NBA draft boards in the next 2-3 years and should get a major bump in the national rankings if he continues his strong play through July. 

6’8 Milan Momcilovic – Team Herro 
Milan Momcilovic had a huge weekend for Team Herro at EYBL Session 3, capped off with a 26/5/5 performance and game winning basket in a 1-point win over BABC on Monday morning. Momcilovic is a deadly shooter with a high and quick release making it almost impossible for defenders to contest or alter his shot. When defenses ran him off the three-point line Momcilovic was able to score in the midrange with pull ups and fadeaways, and has impressive vision and passing ability. There may not be a more skilled player in the 2023 class at his size and Momcilovic has a definite chance to play at the professional level. 

6’9 Matas Buzelis – Expressions 
Matas Buzelis is the one player who has an argument along with Momcilovic for most skilled 2023 prospect 6’7 and above and was impressive over the weekend for Expressions. At 6’9 Buzelis has legitimate point guard skills and can be a primary ball handler at the next level. He plays with great pace and was able to break down defenders and get paint touches off the dribble, where he can score at the rim or find open teammates when drawing help. Buzelis also has great touch from outside with a high arching jumper and smooth release. No question one of the top prospects nationally in the 2023 class, Buzelis has NBA All-star potential down the road. Kentucky, North Carolina, Florida State, Wake Forest and Michigan are some of the schools in the mix for Buzelis. 

6’4 DJ Wagner – NJ Scholars 
DJ Wagner is a consensus top 3 prospect in the 2023 class and there is no question he is deserving of that ranking. He was extremely productive over the weekend leading his team to 4-1 record in Louisville. In a big matchup vs NY Lighting Wagner was at his best, finishing with 27 points, 6 rebound and 5 assists. He is a true 3-level scorer – able to make threes, finish at the rim and does a great job of utilizing the midrange game. It appears Louisville and Kentucky are the 2 teams to beat in his recruitment as John Calipari coached his father at Memphis and new Louisville Head Coach Kenny Payne recently hired his grandfather onto his staff. 

6’2 Robert Dillingham – CP3 
Robert Dillingham is one of the biggest names in the 2023 class and did not disappoint in first live viewing. He is an incredible talent with the ball in his hands with a deep bag of combo moves to create space on the perimeter and get to the basket. Dillingham has elite wiggle and shiftiness and was the best shot creator I watched over the weekend. He also knocked down a couple catch and shoot threes and made some impressive drop off passes for easy baskets when drawing attention of help defenders on his drives. Dillingham is more scoring guard than a pure point at this stage, but he is the type of talent that will get looks in the lottery from NBA teams in the 2024 draft. He is expected to make a college decision before the first July live period and there is major buzz around Kentucky being his selection. 

6’8 Gus Yalden – City Rocks 
Gus Yalden is a prospect we have seen a lot of since his middle school days on the GNBA circuit, but this was first live viewing in over a year. The Wisconsin commit is a skilled and physical big man who Badger fans should be excited about. He does a great job of sealing defenders in the post with his big-bodied frame, has good footwork and can finish with either hand. Yalden also has a nice shooting touch from three-point range and the FT line. He plays the game with a flare and excitement that will make him a fan favorite in Madison. Yalden does need to continue to slim down and improve his conditioning – college weight program will be huge for him - but has the potential to make major contributions as a sophomore in the Big Ten.
