High IQ point guard that has no issues producing even while playing up against bigger players. Highly skilled, fearless, and makes players around him better. Morgan’s leadership is clear on the court. His smart decisions and playmaking elevate his team. Once his body and athleticism catch up to his skill level, he’s going to be a dynamite player.

Caron Warren | 2031 | 5’3″ Point Guard (LA) | NOLA All-Stars
Incredible point guard that was a dominant force all weekend. Makes excellent reads as the primary ball-handler and showed the ability to be a big-time shot maker. Any team that he is on will be in a position to win games. Warren’s leadership and game management are top-notch. His scoring ability adds another layer to his game. I recommend watching this kid play anytime he’s in town.

Ivan Jenkins Jr. | 2030 | 5’6″ Combo Guard (NC) | Team Slay
Jenkins was one of the few players I saw over the weekend that could dominate a game without scoring the ball. He constantly beat his opponents off the dribble and dished it to open teammates. Once he grows, he’ll become a prioritized guard out of his area. Jenkins’s court vision and playmaking are exceptional. His ability to control the game without scoring is rare. Yet another kid who comes from great genetics and knows the game.
