This year’s version of the camp was no different, as there were many new faces in action over the two-day weekend event held at McBride High…

Dream City Christian Prep is among the nation’s elite prep programs, and is coming off having two different first-round NBA Draft picks in this summer’s NBA Draft, as Shaedon Sharpe (Portland Trailblazers) and MarJon Beauchamp (Milwaukee Bucks) both were drafted. The program continues to soar also, as the Dream City program expects (3) more of their past players to be drafted in next year’s draft (2023) – an amazing feat for a prep program. One of the top prospects in the program currently is on the rise, as 6-foot-7 junior wing prospect Travis Torain is making a lot of noise with Division-I college programs. While…

One of the elite prospects in Arizona’s 2023 Class is still looking to make his college decision this prep season, but it is still unclear as to whether he will do so this fall (early signing period) or late, in the spring. Dream City Christian Prep’s hard-working and skilled 6-foot-8, 210-pound senior forward David Tubek is a superb talent with excellent size and a college-ready body. Still on the recruiting board, Tubek has a nice list of Division-I offers for himself to choose from, and is set to have a big senior season for Dream City. Dream City Christian Prep…

One girl’s program that will be on completely another level this high school season, regardless of class or division, will be Desert Vista High School.

One of our top overall prospects in Arizona’s 2023 Class is now heating up in his college recruitment. After several moves in his high school career, and now landing at PHH Prep, 6-foot-9 senior Isaac Hymes is set to have a strong senior season for himself on The Grind Session, and generate much more college recruitment for himself. I expect Hymes, who is a nice talent with size and length, to generate a lot of recruiting interest this prep season, especially while playing for PHH Prep, who has a rich history of developing college prospects. This weekend, Hymes received an…

He was hopeful for Pickens’ future…
