Prep Hoops Next was in Kansas City last weekend for the “Elite 80 Middle School Showcase” where some of the best kids from Missouri and bordering states were in attendance. Below are some of the prospects from the 2027 class that really stood out in front of us…
Fami Yusuf | 5’11 | Iowa
Fami is the younger brother of Bilal and Naef but is looking to be on the same trajectory as his two older brothers. Yusuf was one of the most dominant offensive players at the “Elite 80 Middle School Showcase” and showed a lot of promise as a combo guard.
Cameron Barnes | 6’5 | Missouri
Barnes had a terrific day at the “Elite 80 Middle Showcase” showing his ability to finish above the rim at a consistent level. Barnes used his above average size to dominate around the rim and was constantly a nightmare for his opposition in the paint. It was intriguing to see Barnes use athleticism throughout the day which makes him more appealing as he continues to get older.
Gregory Nash | 5’4 | Oklahoma
Nash might have been the smallest guy at the Elite 80 Middle School Showcase but that did not bother him one bit as he was one of the top lead guards from the 2027 class. Nash has a very good handle that allows him to do a lot of things on the offensive side of the ball. Nash definitely made his mark by being one of the top lead guards at the event regardless of class.
Jaeden Jordean | 6’0 | Minnesota
Jordean was one of the top finds of the camp as he has a lethal shot from behind the arc. Jordean has the ultimate green light whenever the basketball is in his hands because of his ability to shoot the ball and easily could have made the top all star game.
Luke Henderson | 5’5 | Kansas
I had heard about Henderson before the Elite 80 Middle School Showcase began and all of the hype surrounding him was real. Henderson has a bright future and is a good two way player that is capable of making a lot of winning plays for his team.
