New Orleans Elite combo guard : Camryn Carter C/O 2021 - Carter played like the best player in the gym at the HoopFest tournament. His feel for the game playing with good pace, good vision, shooting it well off the dribble, & competing on the defensive end was very impressive. And I love the confidence & swag this kid plays with on the court. Carter has offers Virginia Tech, Mississippi St, Ole Miss, Tulane, Southern, Southeastern & Xavier(LA).
Liv-On point guard : Carlos Stewart C/O 2021 - Stewart was terrific on both ends of the floor proving why he’s a legitimate D1 kid.

Has offers from Tulane, ULL, & Southern.
