Dallas, TX (Future150) -- On the opening day of the 2016 PrimeTime Nationals, it was 2018 combo guard Braxton Bloomquist who was one of the high school prospects who stole the show.

Zakari Hart, 2018 PF, Dallas Elite Academy Ducks: A 6’8' face up power forward with a wirey frame. These are the credentials that would catch anyone’s attention in a gym; however, his skill-set is what draws you in. Hart possesses a polished inside game, a respectable silky smooth mid-range jumper, and can get rebounds at a high rate. Even though he’s able to finish with contact, one would love for him to be more aggressive, but his upside is undeniable.

Mike Lee, 2018 SF, Dallas Fort Wayne Blackhawks: Lee is a 6’4" aggressive wing that seems to play with a chip on his shoulder. He’s consistently strong off the dribble getting himself to the rim, whether it was on the fast break or in a half court setting. He was able to knock down the mid-range pull-up jumper consistently, and didn’t miss from the free throw line.

Alaric Scott, 2018 PG, Dallas Fort Wayne Blackhawks: Scott lit the three-point line up with a barrage of threes from all angles. He is an unselfish point guard, but aggressive, and offensively consistent when he needed to be. He played hard and competed on every possession.

Braxton Bloomquist, 2018 CG, Valley Rebels Elite: A 6’2' stocky floor general with a pure shooting stroke. He possesses next-level passing ability and tremendous leadership skills. He displayed nice ball skills and a great basketball IQ. He is an individual to keep an eye on.

Joshua Miller, 2019 Forward, Dallas Northstars: Joshua Miller is a 6’7' combo forward that has all the intangibles to be good at the game of basketball. He has a soft touch and can shoot the ball well for a young athlete with so much bounce. Whether stealing the ball, blocking a shot, running the court, or rebounding the ball and taking it himself; he thrives in transition. Miller is a one-man fast break finishing at the cup on contact layups, dishing the no-look pass, and completing open dunks. This kid is very good.

Waheed Moore, 2019 SG, Team Portis Wings Elite: Standing at 6-foot-4, this combo guard has limbs that cover ground on the court and make it hard for defenders. This kid can really jump. He tried to slam the ball on every opportunity he received. If Moore improves his off hand dribbling, he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Samazha Hart, 2019 SF, Dallas Elite Academy Ducks: Block after block, steal after steal, and rebound after rebound, Hart showed that is an elite defender, but with a raw offensive game. The 6’4" forward’s tireless effort on the offensive boards and slashing to the rim connecting on slam dunks and body to body layups, helped him record 26 points on the stat sheet. Hart has alot of promise.

Dayton Booker, 2019 PG, Texas Gulf Coast: A Feisty PG that is quicker than lightning. Booker can’t be caught on the fast break. He sliced through the defense like butter with his elite ball-handling. He is very crafty driving to the rim, and can finish layups with either hand and contact. He needs to improve his jump shot, however.
