1st Team

6’8 Kordell Charles - 2021 Wing/Forward - IMG Select | TOP OVERALL PROSPECT | Charles made his return to the court back from injury and do so in a vengeance as the 6'8 high level forward prospect looked back to his form in earning MVP honors in winning the title. A bouncy, versatile 3/4 combo that can stretch the floor with his jumper and has elite athleticism to blow by and finish with authority at the rim. He excelled in transition and on the glass. Following the event he picked up offers from Illinois and South Florida. Also holds offers from Southern Cal, Tulsa, George Mason, Ohio, St Bonaventure, Detroit. He's one of the top available 2021 forwards in Florida.

6’2 Javier Trelles - 2021 Point Guard - IMG Select | TOP POINT GUARD | The engine that made the IMG Select team go. Javier made plays all over the court in game 1 and carried that same energy and timely shot making throughout the event in leading his team to the title. Trelles plays fast, with a pace mixed with a tough nose defensive mindset that sets the tone for his team. He has pure stroke from 3 and a natural floor leader. Holds offer from Manhattan. Division-1 prospect. 

6’3 Brady Rankin - 2021 Shooting Guard - Flight 22 (Hoggard) | BREAKOUT PLAYER - TOP SCORER  | Rankin was the top overall scorer in the event as the 6’3 shooting guard went off for 80 points in 4 games scoring in all ways, including hitting the game winner at the buzzer in the semis vs IMG Elite. Known as a 3-point specimen, Rankin is much more with his ability to score off the line and in transition in averaging 20 ppg and made a division high 21 free throws. He plays above the rim in transition, is crafty off the bounce scoring around the rim and mid-range game. Wilmington’s best in the 2021 class continues to prove he’s a low major division 1 -division 2 plus prospect as one of the top available shooters in NC’s 2021 class. Currently Ranking holds offer from Georgia Southwestern and is picking up more interest following the event.

6’6 Nygie Stroman - 2021 Power Forward - Flight 22 (Richmond Senior) | MOST PRODUCTIVE PLAYER  | The smooth lefty creates a mismatch problem for opponents with his ability to stretch the floor shooting the ball or get you on his hip and score around the rim on drives or post moves. Extremely good going right spinning back to his strong left hook. Stroman has been on a mission as the key interior player for a 27 win Flight 22 team. MVP at Big Shots Charleston Summer Classic and consistent 1st team all star selection. Stroman is a division 1 talent that holds an offer from NC A&T. Is on the board as one of the top available skilled forwards in NC’s 2021 class.

6’3 Kenard Richardson - 2021 Combo Guard - Life Christian | IONA COMMIT  |  The Iona commit is a scoring machine as the 6’3 combo guard can get to his spots and has touch to make shots. He fits the Rick Pitino’s style with his ability to create off the dribble and simply score from all over the court. As most scorers do Richardson gets to the line and connects from the charity stripe at a high rate. Since a young age, Kenard has had the gift to score and that hasn’t changed as he averaged 16.7 ppg in MB Hoopfest. Now with a state title under his belt he has proven he can score it as well as guard in Virginia’s 2021 class.

6’2 Ikechi Chantilou - 2021 Point Guard - Life Christian |  IONA COMMIT | Ikechi can get downhill in a hurry and at 6’2 with his length and athleticism can finish in traffic and above the rim. He plays fast, with gears and completes plays at the rim at a high rate. Really like the fit in Rick Pitino’s system in the press to convert defense into offense. 2-time State Champion at LCA.

6’7 Javani Brown - 2021 Small Forward - IMG Select | HIGH CEILING WING | Brown had as high a ceiling as any prospect in the event. At 6’7 with his length, athleticism, ability to shoot it and genes being the son of former NBA standout PJ Brown, you know the best ball is ahead for Javani Brown. A quick riser at the rim and can play/defend 2-4.  He shot the 3 and mid-range at a high rate. Will attract heavy division 1 recruiting as the season progresses.

6’0 Charlie Miller - 2021 Point Guard - Flight 22 (Pinecrest) | TOP 3-POINT SHOOTER | Shooters shoot and Charlie once again was a top shooter in Big Shots as the 6’0 point guard connected on a tournament high 14 3-pointers made. A state champion at Lumberton that continues to just win and is reliable each game out. Even with a shorthanded Flight 22 team this weekend he helped lead Flight to the title game in averaging 15 ppg. Miller is coach’s son that does all the little intangibles to help his team win. Plays with quick feet defensively, understands angles in beating his man to spots and knows how to get off on offense to score. He makes the right reads passing to set up scoring opportunities in the post or transition. A gamer that continues to prove it in doing so by winning. Division 2 prospect
