Top 10 Standouts (Middle School)

2025 MVP: 5'9 Trey Grant - 2025 Guard/Wing - Porter Gaud - As seen at Big Shots Summer Classic in August with Carolina Cavaliers, Trey Grant can fill it up as he scored a game high 23 points in game 2, averaged 17 ppg for the camp in earning 2025 MVP honors. He has a tight handle and sees the floor very well. Knows how to play the game and for good reason as he is the son of College of Charleston head coach Earl Grant. He is one of the top guards to watch in SC's 2025 class.

2026 MVP: 5'4 Andre Hagler - 2026 Point Guard - Cario Middle - From the moment he took the floor Andre was locked in, whether it was warming up, drills or games he was showing out.

2027 MVP: 5'8 Zaiyir Phillips - 2027 Guard/Wing - Gaston Day - There's some players that just got the 'IT' factor and Phillips has IT! After averaging 30+ ppg in two consecutive MVP title weekends at Big Shots with Team Loaded 2027, the No. 1 prospect in NC 2027 class once again showed the hype is real. His work ethic, skill set, test numbers and on court game production prove it time and time again. With former D-1 college coaches & national scouts instructing the camp, Phillips impressed all. He's a lefty playmaking point guard that is advanced in his reads and skill set.  Was most impressed with how he carries himself and goes about his work. He's locked in to do big things for the years to come. Twitter: @Ziiphillips07

With his quicks and separation moves he can create for himself or others as welL. As a seventh grader he made the J.V. team last year for Baptist Hill HS. His determination & drive to get better stood out in the skills session followed by his playmaking ability in games.

5'0 Eyzaiah Grant - 2026 Point Guard - Porter Gaud - Love watching coach's son develop and blossom in Big Shots.
