RYZE Tip Off Classic Top Performers Pt. 2
Malique Johnson, Wood Elite
Johnson was one of the best floor generals in the 17U division, showing a great skill set as well as a quick explosive burst off the dribble. He operates very well in ball screens, making the right reads and having the skill set to make the appropriate play. He shoots the ball well from three and in the midrange, and when he gets hot he can put points on the board in a hurry. He'll be a popular guy with college programs this spring.
Caleb Holt, Game Elite
Holt is one of the best prospects nationally in 2026 and he continuously shows why every time out. His offensive game is incredibly well-rounded. He's an elite scorer from every level, passes the ball incredibly well, and can play multiple spots. Defensively, he guards the ball very well and can create deflections to get opportunities in the open floor. He's a very complete prospect and the sky is the limit for his potential.
Braylhan Thomas, TSF EYBL
Thomas was a big time standout for TSF this weekend averaging 18 points per game. His combination of athleticism, size, strength, versatility, and finishing ability make him a solid prospect in 2024. He consistently found himself in great spots and was an elite level finisher in the paint and around the rim. He also showed he can step into the midrange and from three and knock down shots.
Kaleb Gallman, Atlanta Timberwolves
Gallman averaged 17 points per game on the weekend, and was one of the best three point shooters in the 16U division, making 14 threes across four games. He had a quick trigger on catch-and-shoots and also looked to attack closeouts and get to the rim, where his athletic abilities allow him to be an effective scorer. That ability to be a three-level scorer should do big things for him moving forward.
Trey Thompson, Tennessee Impact
Thompson is a very good prospect in 2026 in Tennessee. At a strong 6-foot-7, he has the ability to play inside as well as on the perimeter, making him a huge matchup problem. He averaged over 19 points per game on the weekend, doing it in a variety of ways. He shot it well from three, making 10 threes on the weekend. He's also very effective on the block and in the high post where he can use his size and skill level to his advantage.
Daniel Ogunyemi, Atlanta Celtics
Ogunyemi proved that he is a guy to watch in Georgia's 2025 class. He's got the size and strength to be a force on the interior, and his developing offensive skillset is making him a very versatile matchup problem. As always, he hit the glass hard on both ends and finished well on the interior. He also showed that he can step out and put the ball on the floor as well as stretch his range and connect on perimeter jumpers.
Jayden Crawford, Team Scoot
Crawford was the leading scorer in the 15U division at over 24 points per game, getting a lot of his work done off the dribble. He was incredibly difficult to contain off the bounce, consistently getting by defenders as well as drawing fouls. He's a good finisher in the paint and knows when to pull up in the midrange. He also shot the ball well from three, proving that he is a true three-level bucket getter.
