BE Elite Invitational – II

Houston, TX

2024 Bryson McGlothin 6’7 WF (John Paul II) Plano, TX

He surprised me how well he could handle the ball and make plays for his teammates. He made good decisions and didn’t force many shots. He was very good at filling the lane on the breaks and finishing at the rim. I was impressed all camp by his versatility.

2026 Johnathan Moss 5’10 PG (Owensboro High) Owensboro, KY

A very high IQ point guard that can knock down the three ball consistently and knows how to get in the lane and make things happen. For his age he plays with a lot of poise. He can tend to get in trouble when thinks to much….simple plays are his friends.

2025 Jayden Jackson 5’10 PG (West Monroe High) West Monroe, LA

He’s a tough, quick point guard that can hit the open three. He had no problem handling physicality for his age. He’s getting better every time I have watched him play and love his progression, showing consistency is now his goal. Being a point guard means always being a leader and controlling the team.

2025 Shelton Henderson 6’6 F (Bellaire High) Houston, TX

The skies are the limit with Henderson….if he can extend those high level spurts into a quarter, half and games. He was one of the most talented players in the camp but those spurts weren’t prolonged or happened enough. There is nothing he can’t do from the wing position.

2025 Montana Wheeler 5’7 PG (Houston Christian) Houston, TX 

He was by far one of the most talented and gifted point guards in the camp. He has a sweet stroke and can get almost any shot he wants on the court. He tends to look more for his shot than getting his teammates involved. He has to do a better job of balancing both.

2026 Jarvis Pope 6’ G (Brandon Academy) Tampa, FL

The talented young man showed he belonged all weekend with the older players. He picked and chooses when to be aggressive and when to play his role. He concentrated mostly on defending. When called on offensively, he knocked down the open shots and got to the basket and finished.

2025 Tylan Lewis 6’1 G (Independence) Spring Hill, TN

He’s not a young player that will wow you from the door but the more you watch him play you understand he’s just a baller. He stays active on both ends and is very good at attacking the basket and making things happen. He’s an aggressive lead guard that needs to work on his pace. He made shots from deep but didn’t live in that space, showing he understands his game. His most dominant skill is his on ball defense. He was a pest all camp. He has great work ethic and look forward to seeing the growth in his game in the near future.

2025 Brandon Stores 6’4 G/F (St. Raymond’s) Bronx, NY

He’s just a baller. He rebounds, defends and was always playing with the ultimate effort on both ends. He may have not have done one thing great but he does a lot of things well. He scores the ball consistently and at a high percentage. He doesn’t take many bad shots and does most of his damage in the paint and around the basket.

2026 Landon Veal 6’6 WF (Cypress Park High) Cypress, TX

I was impressed with the young player and his potential. He’s bouncy and active and was great getting up and down the court, making things happen. He showed good touch on his jump shot. He’ll have to get stronger and more physical but that should come with work and age. There’s no denying his potential.

2023 Dyan Purnell 6’6 WF (TBA) Raleigh, NC

He attacks and likes getting to the rim and finishing. His shot didn’t look bad but was inconsistent when I watched him play. His effort is what mainly stood out to me. He just seemed to make winning plays. He doesn’t shy away from contact and it seemed at times he welcomed it. He’s just one of those players that help you win games.

2026 Peyton Kemp 5’11 G (Brother Rice) Clinton Township

A real strong and active guard. You can tell he’s used to playing with older kids and more then held his own. He has no problem getting to the basket and showed some good touch from mid-range but should work on extending his range. You can tell he was pressing some during camp. I like see him relax and just play his game.

2025 Cortez Graham 6’4 G (Hillsborough High) Nashville, TN

He was one of the young players I heard about but prior to the camp. I was impressed with his intensity and focus in drill work. That same intensity also carried over into games. He scored at all levels. He was physical when he had to be. He played very hard but under control. He seemed to be in camp with a purpose and it showed.

2024 Isaac Williams IV 6’2 G (Faith Family Academy) Dallas, TX 

He is a strong lead point guard that made good plays for his teammates and himself all weekend. I like his decision making. He had no problem finishing through contact while knocking down consistently knocking down his jumper I was really impressed with his court vision….Flat out baller.

2025 Johnny Keenan 5’11 G (Iona Prep) Rye, NY 

He’s a real gritty NY point guard that can shoot the rock. He made good decisions and played under control. I like the way he saw the court. He was fun to watch, as he displayed his court vision and leadership throughout.
