Andre Jackson (2020): Albany Academy, NY

One of the most athletic players in the gym. Possesses some serious jumping ability and had many highlight-reel dunks to show for it. Showed his ability to contribute in several other ways, too, most notably a refined outside shot. Look for Jackson to emerge as the focal point of Albany Academy’s attack this season.


Joseph Girard III (2019): Glens Falls HS, NY

The highly touted guard quickly proved his worth. Girard demonstrated his ability to score the ball in a variety of ways, highlighted by his exceptional three-point shooting. Absolutely lethal from beyond the arc.


Jair Currie (2020): St. Thomas More, CT

Currie has a great feel for the game and made it very clear that he had something to prove. He’s an all-around scorer and is difficult to stop when driving to the basket. He’s sneaky on the defensive side of the ball, too. He stands 6’4 and uses his length and quickness to his advantage. An excellent athlete with a bounty of potential.


Mika Adams Woods (2019): Bishop Ludden HS, NY

The perfect floor general. Always looking to get his teammates involved first. Still an exceptional scorer, though. Offensive prowess was on full display. Woods impacts the game in many ways and brings a winning mentality to whatever team he’s on. One of NYS’s finest.


Dior Johnson (2022): Saugerties HS, NY

Hard to believe he’s just an eighth-grader. With that said, you wouldn’t be able to tell watching him compete. In a gym full of high school upperclassmen, he shined. He, like Woods, is another great floor general. He can both score at will and set his teammates up. Crafty, athletic guard who was the driving force behind his team’s success. Plays with a toughness that simply cannot be taught. Whichever program ends up with Johnson will thrive.


August Mahoney (2019): Albany Academy, NY

Lights-out shooter with a quick release. Made the defense pay all day, even when given just the slightest bit of space. What he lacks in size he makes up for in sheer toughness and passion. He passes the ball well and gets his teammates up well. Just scratching the surface of his potential.


Daniel Buie (2019): Gould Academy, ME

Consistently sunk three pointers and shot well from inside the arc. Gets to the basket with ease and finishes nearly everything at the rim. Seemed to play his best in the biggest games. A winner.


Symir Torrence (2020): Vermont Academy, VT

Torrence showed his ability to play from the outset. He’s skilled in seemingly every facet of the game. He can score the ball, create for his teammates, defend, rebound, etc. He was the best player on his team and one of the best in the gym.


Noah Hutchins (2019): The Park School, NY

Hutchins was one of the most athletic individuals in the gym. He plays with a bounce in his step and has great quickness to go along with it. He rebounds the ball well for his position and can perform in any role.
