• 2027 Hoop Dreams Magazine Jr Standouts - Theodore Allen Jr- 2027 5’7 (High Rock Middle School) Massachusetts When we say hes the GOODS, we really mean it, has been know as one of the best players in the country for a while now. TJ fits the mold of having “IT” Makes shots, able to use his body to create space, has developed a consistant jump shot which has kept defenders honest. One of the best parts of his game is his playmaking ability, he is able to see the play before it happens. He’s years before his time, he is going to be special. Adriel Cantave - 2027 5’2 (Carver Middle School School) Massachusetts The work horse was a blur in the open court, making plays and causing havoc on the defensive end. He has a certain flash that makes you gravitate towards his court, we watched him make three big time plays in a row and it didn’t even look like he broke a sweat. He has star potential and he knows it. Thomas Sibley- 2027 6’ 2( Westwood Thurston Middle) Massachusetts The big guy showcased his ability to make shots as well as finish through contact, he looks to have grown and has a lot more inches to go he is just scratching the surface of how good he can really be. Sibley has worked himself into a player and with more work he will be a big time prospect. Ayden Mejia –2028 5’6 (Bradley Elementary School) Massachusetts Crafty guard who understands how to play…
  • 2026 Hoop Dreams Magazine Jr. Standouts (Part 2) - Dmani Williams –  2026 5’5 (Weston Middle School) Massachusetts This is a throwback guard, Gary Payton vibes if you play with the ball in the back court he will more then certenly take the ball. He showed he can make the long ball, as well as play in ball screens. Williams has a chance to get some height as his brother played schlorship basketball and stands at 6’8.  If this is the case he will become something special. Jerry Brown - 2026 5’2 (Roxbury Prep) Massachusetts The crafty guard looked good while running the show, showed his smooth jump shooting ability and his ability to create space. His shifty handle made him a tough cover when he was able to get into the gut of the defence and cause havoc, a big time on ball defender who has a knack for the ball, Brown is a name to remember.   Treshawn Ray - 2026 Massachusetts Has showed us a new side of his development, was able to score at a easy clip, for a while it looked really easy, one dribble pullups, driving to the lane and keeping his teammate involved. The big guard has a chance to be really good with continued work, he will be someone you should remember. Amari Mow - 2026 5’3 (Jonas Clarke Middle School) Massachusetts A point guard who knows how to play the position, seen him make the right play time after time.  He was really good playing out of ball screen actions,…
  • 2026 Hoop Dreams Magazine Jr Standouts (Part 1) - Israel Jackson – 2026 6’3 (Newburgh School District) New York  Mr. Jackson made his case for the #1 prospect in the Hoop Dreams Mag rankings, the 6’4 wing did everything, scored it at a high clip, blocked shots, made jumpers, quick rips and showed his ball handling ability. Jackson was a man amongst boys and he put everyone on notice that he is the real deal. Patrick Otey - 2026 5’11 (Thurston Middle School) Massachusetts One of the best at the event, has the tools to be a big time guard, shots it, gets to the rim and defends at a high level. Was really impressed with his ability to see the next play, this is very important at this age and he has what we call IT! Kareem Anthony Jr –2026  5’3 2026 (Jerome Dunn Academy) New Jersey Kareem is as good as advertised, got to the basket at will, showed he had point guard skills, then turned it up and went on a scoring tear, scored it anyway you wanted it, ball screens, jumpers, floaters, he put on a show. He will be one of New Jersey’s finest and a big time prospect. Allen Brown - 2026 5’2 (Holbrook Middle High) Massachusetts The quick PG made his presence felt, made plays for others and was able to get his shot off at will. Looks to be a big time point guard who will have a really good IQ. Will be one to keep an eye on as he seems…

  • 2025 Hoop Dreams Magazine Jr Combine (Part 2) - Warren Keel- 2025 5’10 (Breed Middle School) Massachusetts  Looked like he was walking on water, there wasn’t anything that he didn’t do, scored it at all three levels. Keel was special at the combine, his name was buzzing and you felt his energy as he played like he had something to prove. Was really impressed with his IQ and being able to see plays before they happen, he is going to be special.  Adam Conheeny - 2025 5’10 (Portsmouth Middle School) Rhode Island Shooters shot, this knockdown shooter showed us he has game and is one of the best shooters in the class. Made everyone on his team better, he communicated well and informed his players where they should be. He seemed to make the right play all the time, as he was a big time playmaker who showed that he belonged adam aka Collin Gillespie.    Desmond Bellot - 2025 6’0 (Rivers School) Massachusetts  Desmond is a long guard that is just scratching the surface of his potential. He made an impact on the game by playing hard on both ends of the court. He rebounds very well for his position and finishes with the best of them. His jumper has improved which has been able to keep defenders at bay, Bellot has all the tools of  big time guard.    Devan Williams – 2025 Connecticut A pit bull is what we called him, the do it all guard had ball handlers scared to dribble when he was guarding them.…
  • 2025 Hoop Dreams Magazine Jr Combine (Part 1) - Travis Upchurch- 5’11 (Fairfield Country Day) Connecticut One of the best guards I have seen in a long time, he plays at a different pace then everyone one else. Unable to speed him up or turn him over he is a high level defender that plays the passing lanes like a veteran. Upchurch makes it look easy as he scored whenever he felt like it, with the ball in his hands you are sure to have a good opportunity of winning the ball game.      Jamari Robinson - 2025 5’10 (Belmont Hill School) Massachusetts  The high flyer made his presence felt as he sliced and diced his way to the basket, Robinson did it all and did it gracefully all within the flow of the game. Robinson is a nightmare going down hill and has slippery moves to get past his defender.    Amir Panagiotis - 2025 6’0 St (Andrews School) Rhode Island  This hard nosed guard only knows one gear and that’s full speed, he didn’t take a play off all day which screams “winner” Got to the basket at ease and played under control. Panagiotis has that old school game, get it done by any means necessary. On the defensive end he gets after it while guarding multiple positions.    Jared Butler Jr - 2025 6’5 (Capital Prep) Connecticut Butler has grown and has become more skillful, the long wing is oozing with upside. His long ball has become more of a weapon, along with his ball handling…
