Holiday Hoopsgiving Top Performers Pt. 2

Nyk Lewis, Gonzaga College (DC)

Lewis was easily one of the top performers and top underclassmen of the event. His skill level for a sophomore is very high level and his knack for scoring shows why he's already a highly recruited player in the DMV. He's tough as nails and plays with savvy and a high IQ as well. As he continues to develop, look for him to be a notable name in 2025 nationally.

Arrinten Page, Wheeler

Page is off to a great start to his season with a few huge performances. He was a big difference maker in Wheeler's win over Grovetown to cap off the event, going for 26 points dominating in the middle. He's a great finisher at the rim and found himself on the receiving end of a few lobs from Isaiah Collier. He also has great footwork on the block can make moves and finish plays well in the paint. His development has continued at a rapid pace.

Carl Cherenfant, Calvary Christian (FL)

Cherenfant was one of the top overall scorers at Hoopsgiving, and he got a lot of his work done off the bounce in the midrange and getting to the rim. He's a very explosive athlete which allows him to create space to get shots off, with his ability to make tough shots, he does not need a ton of space. He also showed the ability to catch and shoot from three as well as be a versatile defender. Memphis is getting a good one with him.

RJ Jones, Wasatch Academy (UT)

We were highly impressed with the playmaking ability of the Kansas State commit. He's very dangerous off the dribble making reads, whether it's scoring or finding teammates for opportunities. He shoots the ball well from the perimeter off the catch and off the dribble and shot the three at a high level in both games. He also showed the ability to be a fantastic and creative passer and might have had the assist of the tournament with a behind the back pass in transition that led to a Wasatch dunk.

Cannon Richards, Kell

He might not always show it in the box score, but Richards will be one of the most important players for the Longhorns this season. In both games at Hoopsgiving, his activity level was extremely high. He hits the boards hard on both ends and makes a huge impact with his size, length, and athleticism. He's also willing to step out and make shots from the midrange and from three. He's going to be a big stock riser this season.

Tyran Stokes, Prolific Prep (CA)

When you see Stokes play, it's hard to believe that he's only a freshman. He's got elite level size and athleticism on the wing and with that comes a ton of versatility. He's an athletic finisher at the rim and he can go up for big dunks or finish around the rim through contact. He also was a great shooter from three on the weekend, making his fair share of shots from the perimeter. He will be one of the top players in the country in 2026.
