**6’5 SF/G Majok Deng of Salpointe HS, AZ 2019 (AZ Powerhouse 17 Black)
Deng was arguably the top prospect in the event. He has a very versatile all-around skill set and an endless motor. He gets to the basket on the drive consistently and also has a nice pull up game. He is explosive and can elevate over defenders. He can shoot it ok and has 3-point range. He is also a solid rebounder and defender. Deng belongs on the high major radar.

Confident handler, sees the floor, can run a pick and roll, can shoot it from the perimeter, runs a team fairly well.
**6’7 PF/C Nick Jackson of Sunnyside HS, AZ 2018 (AZ Powerhouse 17 Black)
Jackson is a combo post man with long arms with decent post up skills. He’s a decent ball handler who has an ok one-bounce drive. He can dribble operate on the block and has a jump hook but he needs to finish better. He’s a capable rebounder and shot blocker on, the defensive end. Jackson belongs on the low major radar with potential to go higher

Nelson is a fairly athletic combo guard with a lot of promise. He has solid ball handling skills and is a nice playmaker in transition. He also shoots it fairly well with 3-point range. Nelson is a sure-fire Division I Prospect- just a matter of what level he ends up at.
