The 2027 class highlighted the NY2LA Generation Next All-Star Camp. Here are a few of the many standouts from the camp. While these players are just starting the eighth grade, there was a great deal of talent and a lot of quality basketball played at the camp. 

Derrick Cross Jr. – 2027 – PG – Indiana Elite Blaze

The point guard out of Indiana was one of the two MVP’s from the 2027 class. While Cross is a skilled point guard who plays well with the ball in his hands, he is also a versatile player who showed a great array of skills. He scored and distributed the ball very effectively as well to defending both guards and forwards well. With his moves and handle, Cross was at his best getting into the paint and creating. He was constantly getting past his man to score around the basket in addition distributing the ball with his great passing ability on the attack. 

Jacob Fuller – 2027 – F/C – Man Up

A very tough and effective big man inside on both ends of the floor. As well to standing at 6’5”, Fuller has good strength and plays with plenty of energy. Not only does he have the size, but he still moves well out on the floor. He defended the paint well but is also a versatile defender guarding out on the perimeter. The big man scored it strong down inside including posting up as well as in the mid-range. 

Max Jones – 2027 – G – 24Up

It was a well-deserved Mr. Upside award for Jones with all he showed throughout the camp. As well to having a well-rounded skill set, he plays big on the floor to be a highly impactful player on both ends. Jones stands at 6’3” in addition to having a strong build. With his size and agility, Jones was able to defend every position on the floor effectively. Offensively, he is a tough attacking guard who plays well through contact. For a player who is still a year out from high school, Jones showed a lot of tools and ability.   

Jack Kohnen – 2027 – G – Chapman Basketball

Kohnen was one of the top guards of the entire camp. He has some size in the backcourt and showed a good ability to distribute, rebound, score, and defend. Kohnen was always a threat with the ball in his hands with his ability to get all the way to the basket as well as to creating for his teammates. Not only does he have nice moves off the dribble but is also a very skilled passer. At a young age, Kohnen already has a nice blend of skills, size, and knows how to play to win the Mr. Intangibles award. 

Tref Rademaker – 2027 – F/C – Chapman Basketball

The post had a dominant camp to earn himself co-mvp honors. At 6’5” with a solid frame already, Rademaker could not be stopped around the paint to lead the camp in points at 20 as well as rebounds at 9.5 per game. Rademaker was an offensive force shooting well over seventy percent from the field. He scored it very effectively on rolls, put backs, post ups, plus some mid-range jumpers. He could not be stopped around the paint as he could finish right through or over defenders with his size and soft touch. 

Jackson Snider – 2027 – G – M14 

Snider was one of the top two-way players of the entire camp. He has a nice combination of size and skill to do a bit of everything and has a real advanced game. A vocal guard that was an effective playmaker with the ball in his hands. He is strong playing downhill attacking the basket but also hit three of his four attempts from beyond the arc with a smooth jumper.
