Anaya Howell – FBC Douglasville – 2021

Howell scored a game high 16 points this morning for her FBC team. She did it mostly by using her length and ball skill to get to the rim and finish. However, she also showed range on her jumper, which is a tough combination for defenders to handle.

Jaihla Proctor – FBC Douglasville – 2021

Proctor showed as much promise from the point guard position as we saw from any player at the position so far this weekend. Her quick moves going to either hand and strength in the lane makes her a tough cover. We expect to hear more from the 5-4 guard in years to come.

Denvia “DJ” Morgan – PBG Starzz – 2020

Morgan is a proven shooter. We saw her light up the Boca Raton Shootout two years ago (Read Here). She was on her A-Game again today with 24 points in numerous 3-pointers. She had a similar night last night in her team’s opening game. At this point, Morgan should be considered one of the best shooters in the South Florida area.

Kiyah Speight – Steel City Gators – 2020

The Steel City Gators ran out to a big win this morning. Speight was a big reason behind that victory. She scored 12 points and connected on two long range jumpers. That type of production is a promising sign for coach Robinson and his squad.

Tanesha Kirk – EOTO – 2021

Basketball is a place with size, strength and skill matter. Kirk is a prospect who is in the process of putting all of those attributes together. She is showing the ability to use her body and get angles to score on the block. When she finds her confidence, we expect to see her consistency increase immediately.

DeAsia Booker – Mississippi Lady Cardinals – 2020

Booker is a super-speedy point guard who can create space with the dribble. Kris Watkins of the Southern Hoops Report (@SHReport) said, “Booker continually gets downhill in transition. She did a great job of finishing through contact.”

Aniya Palmer – Auburn Raptor Elite – 2022

Palmer is a unique talent as a freshman. She has many of the physical tools that it will take for her to be an impact player at the next level. Right now her ability to rebound, lead the break and score in a variety of ways on the offensive end is a handful for opponents to deal with. The 6-foot wing will be one to track in upcoming evaluations.
