Clarence Obiajulu (2021, Hampton MD): The 6’7 big man impressed on day 1 of FAA. It seemed that any defense that he went up against could not find an answer for him. Obiajulu can score a multitude of ways driving to the basket or posting up his defender, the guy has an eye for the basket. Great showing from the Maryland native.

Benny Williams (2021, Potomac MD): The 2021 big made a name for himself on day 1. His length and athleticism helped him to a few monster blocks in half court play. On offense he displays great footwork as well as post moves to score in the paint. Look out for this guy as the week goes on.

Jacob Harris (2021, Chestnut Hill MA): On day 1 of Future All American the 2021 guard put on a show shooting the ball. The kid could not miss from outside the perimeter, knocking down 3 after 3 heavily contested or wide open. He is a dangerous shooter and look for him to continue to have the hot hand the rest of the week.

Frank Kepnang (2021 Granby MA): The big man did not disappoint on the first day of camp. In his game sets he proved he is so much farther along then his opponents both physically and mentally. Frank utilized his size perfectly rolling off screens to perform monster dunks and put backs. On defense he is a great rim protector and makes it known that nobody can come into his house! Great day for the 2021 big.

Zion Cruz (2022, Jersey City NJ): The 6’2, New Jersey guard displayed some impressive play during full court game sets. Cruz displays a nice touch around the rim and when driving with the ball can finish in the craftiest of ways. Look for Cruz to continue to impress at FAA.

Nnanna Njoku (2021, Hokessin DE): Standing at 6’8 the big man can not be stopped at the paint. His freakish athletic ability allows him to throw down electrifying dunks and get monster blocks on the opposite end of the floor. This player abused the rim in his game sets on day 1 and I’m sure we will see more of it as the week goes on.

Terrence Clarke (2021, Weston MA): Ranked number 2 in the ESPN top 100  with a lot of high major offers is the 6’5 guard from Massachusetts. Clarke can do everything. He shoots the ball efficiently, rebounds well, and uses his astounding athleticism to finish well at the rim. His versatility is very valuable and a big reason why he stood out on Day 1 of FAA

Jalen Duren (2022, Philadelphia PA): The 6’8 big man has tremendous pace for a guy of his size. Duren is a man among kids as he makes getting to the basket look effortless. In his game sets on day 1 he threw down monster dunk after monster dunk looking like one of the most dominant players here. This kid is big time and expect him to continue this dominance as the week moves forward.

Kayvontay Williams (2021 Brooklyn NY): This kid can jump out the gym. Only standing at 5’8 this kid makes up for it with unbelievable athleticism. In his game sets on day 1 he threw down a couple of impressive dunks and added an ally-oop. He turned a lot of heads on Day 1.

Carter Whitt (2021, Raleigh NC): This player has a good feel for the game. In his game sets on day 1 he created countless opportunities for his team. Whitt is a great spot up shooter and displays great vision on the court. The '21 North Carolina guard showed up ready to play from the start.
