That 2028 Class has some players that could come in at #1. Here is a list of a few players that could take home that #1 title.
Erick Dampier Jr. || Missisippi || 2028 ||
There might not be a bigger more dominant big in the country than this young prospect. He looks like a grown man out there when he faces certain teams. He has learned how to really handle double-teams and various zone defenses. He does a great job working that high post with moves to the rim off the bounce or turn around 15-footers. He is smart enough to keep that ball high away from the little guys. He is not a stand and demand the ball big, he is active and he moves from spot to spot figuring out what the defense is going to give up.
Kameron Mercer || Ohio || 2028 ||
Tenacious player on the defensive end that has no problem enforcing his will. He is aggressive and he gets after it. He can grab a board and with speed and eyes up he pushes the ball at an elite pace. His handle and maneuvering ability is something to see. He is another player that deals with double teams well as he can beat them with passing, his footwork or merely break the press with that dribbling ability. He shots the ball well and he can finish at the rim through contact. Really tough two way player that gets after it.
Adan Diggs || Arizona || 2028 ||
Speed is elite at this level and likely if he played up as well. Picks up full-court and is a superb three-level scorer already. The motor is one of the aspects of his game that really sticks out.
Heaven Chea || Washington || 2028 ||
Right off teh bat the kid is in attack mode with his speed, wiggle and elite scoring ability. Three-level talent that will play at an intense level the entire game. Could have one of the best all-around games in the class.
Austin Sears || Kentucky || 2028 ||
Elite shooting prospect. He’s got the shooting package down. He can stop and pop on the break and he can really hit on the move as well. Coming off of screens he can get his feet right and let it fly. In the pick n’ roll he can step behind the screener and light it up. You add range and that step back to his game he does have it all. In a spot up situation he can really knock them down. Likely the best shooting prospect right now in the class. He does it against good competition as well.
Adam Daniels || Indiana || 2028 ||
Second chance opportunities are what this kid can give you. He has a quick second jump and not only is he active on both ends of the floor but he can get up and flush it with ease. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential and talent this young prospect has. He is big wing type big that can play 3-5.
