LeBron James Jr- 2023- Point Guard
It is hard not to mention LeBron James when it comes to Akron basketball. LeBron James Jr is doing his best to create his own path and not live in his fathers shadow. Although that is going to be a tough thing to do, James Jr has certainly let his game to the talking. He has shown great playmaking ability at the point guard position, along with the ability to score when he needs to. We know basketball is in his blood; it will be interesting to see how he develops moving forward.
Elijah Fischer- 2023- Guard
Their used to be a time when a 7th grader dunking came as a surprise, nowadays it seems to happen every month. Fischer is one of those young prospects with such great athleticism and potential, that he sticks out whenever he is playing. Putting Fischer and LeBron James Jr on the same team is unfair; these two put on a show this past weekend.
Collin Porter- 2023- Point Guard
One of the best things about any of these big camps or showcases is the unknown factor. There are so many different players from different places; somebody unheard of is going to step up into the spotlight. At the D-Rich camp this past weekend that player was Collin Porter. Porter impressed coaches, scouts and opposing players with his quickness, handles and passing. He definitely made a name for himself and is no longer on that list of unknown talent.
