Over the course of the Summer Jam there was a long list of great games at the 16U level. While many players at this level could make a strong argument for inclusion on this list, here are the ones that were most deserving of the stock booster honors. 

Marquivion Beasley – 2025 – PG – Team X-Magic

Beasley had himself a tremendous game on Saturday while scoring twenty points while also showcasing all of his point guard skills. He plays strong with the ball in his hands with good range to hit deep threes off the dribble as well as pulling up in the mid-range. While he can really score the ball, he is also a willing passer that reads the floor. He also plays with good energy and took a charge.  

Braden Freeman – 2025 – G – MidPro Academy

The game of Freeman continues to take great strides and he has tremendous upside with his 6’6” height as well to his quickly growing game. He had a stellar game on Saturday scoring 21 points doing the bulk of it one the attack but also showed a versatile game throughout the tournament. With his combination of positional size, athleticism, and versatile skill set, the stock of Freeman is greatly trending upwards.  

Darius Helm – 2025 – F – Indiana Elite Central

Helm stands at 6’5” and plays even bigger down in the paint. He was one of the tournaments better shot blockers at the 16U level, doing so in bunches playing very tough inside. In addition to his shot blocking, Helm was also a very aggressive rebounder and scored in double figures multiple times finishing well around the basket. 

Damon Howard – 2025 – PG – Progeny

The 6’0” point guard excels playing on the attack with a good ability to both score and distribute the ball. He is extremely quick on the attack often getting into the defense and is a good decision maker with the ball. He has a nice mid-range game shooting it well off the dribble in addition to creating for his teammates finding the open man on the attack.  

Jameson Kegler – 2025 – PG – Beastmode

Kegler really stood out with his distributing ability. The point guard can really create for his teammates with the combination of his great passing ability, good quick decision making, and his vision. He is always looking to set up his teammates and pushes the ball creating well in transition. 

Christian Mitchell – 2025 – F – Team Ramey

The forward is an incredibly impactful player with all he can do on the floor. Not only a versatile forward at 6’6” but plays with plenty of energy battling on the floor. With his size, length, and mobility, he is a tough defender who can matchup with nearly anyone on the floor.  

Jake Schultz – 2025 – G – MN Comets Elite

Schultz is a high IQ guard that is a skilled and efficient scorer getting into double digits in all but one of his games even as a part of a deep team of other guards. He did much of his scoring from the outside with a smooth jumper hitting tough shots off both the catch and dribble. Though he also handles the ball well making some plays off the dribble. 

Tyler Thick – 2025 – PF – Greater Purpose Athletics

Thick is a high upside rising junior big man who stands at 6’7” with a solid build and is very active on both ends of the floor. He really stood out on the defensive end down in the paint blocking shots and grabbing all boards near him. Offensively, he runs the floor hard to score in transition. 

Roman Thompson – 2025 – SF – MTXE

The 6’4” wing can do a lot on the floor, especially standing out with his shooting ability. Thompson can really shoot the ball from the outside hitting three threes in a single half but also uses his strength and toughness to get to the basket. He plays with great energy on the defensive end as well as the glass.
