Bryan, TX — On3 is in Bryan, Texas for Adidas 3SSB Chapter 2. It’s a live evaluation period, meaning college coaches are out on the road, scouting high school talent. There were many high-level players all around the gym but these were my top performers from Saturday.

On3 MVP: SG Darryn Peterson

Darryn Peterson easily had the best performance of the day. He has a knack for scoring the basketball while remaining unselfish. The 6-foot-5 sophomore guard handles ball pressure well and is always looking to get his teammates involved. Defensively, he has great anticipation. He couldn’t be stopped today and poured in a total 42 points. College programs are knawing at the bit for his services. An ELITE guard in the 2025 class.

Duke, UNC, UCLA, Michigan, and plenty of others watched him today.

Peterson ranks as the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2025 class, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

2. C Flory Bidunga

Flory Biduga is an absolute monster in the paint, that’s no secret. The 6-foot-10 center His sheer size, athleticism, and motor were all on display as he attacked the rim. Saturday’s evening game, he also showed some touch around the basket and even knocked in a pair of jump shots.

College coaches were lined up to see the five-star big man, including: Auburn’s Bruce Pearl, as well as assistants from Michigan, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Indiana, Florida, and others.

Bidunga is also a potential candidate for reclassification, meaning he could move into the 2023 class and we could see him suit up in a college uniform next season.

Bidunga is ranked as the No. 3 overall player in the 2024 class, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

3. SF Caleb Holt

The 2025 and 2026 classes are absolutely loaded with talent. Caleb Holt is a member of that elite group in the 2026 class. The 6-foot-5 guard from New Market (Ala.) Buckhorn has elite speed and great size. Only a freshman, Holt has a mature body and plays well beyond his years. He finishes well at the rim and is an elite defender. On3 has yet to begin ranking the class of 2026 but you can expect his name to be towards the top.

Holt holds early offers from Auburn, Alabama, LSU, and others.

4. PF Cooper Koch – Iowa

Cooper Koch is an elite shooter and shot maker at 6-foot-8. He was pouring in threes today. Has a good feel for the game. Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery was on hand to see his performance.

Koch ranks as the No. 91 overall prospect in the 2024 class, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

5. PG Travis Perry

Travis Perry has a strong feel for the game and is the ultimate competitor. He’s unselfish and his motor is always on go. Kentucky’s all-time high school leading scorer shot the the ball much better in the second game of the day, knocking down multiple triples. Indiana, Purdue, Kentucky, Michigan, and others are in the mix.

Perry ranks as the No. 88 overall prospect in the 2024 class, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

Additional notes

+ Dedan Thomas has some much poise and composure. He can lead a team, finds his teammates, and can also score the basketball. UCLA, UNLV, Florida, Houston, Arizona, and Gonzaga are in the mix for the 6-foot-1 four-star point guard.

+ I really like the upside and trajectory of Khani Rooths. He’s a long, versatile forward at 6-foot-8. A two-way player with a high motor. Michigan is the latest school to offer. Virginia Tech is in the mix and he’s planning a visit to Georgia. Alabama, Mississippi State, and others are also involved.

+ Khaman Maker is a true 7-footer with some mid-range game. He’s very slender but has upside. Played aggressive and threw down a ferocious dunk. UNLV, Arizona State, and Missouri are among his offers.

+ Ian Jackson has been widely regarded as one of the top guards in the 2024 class for quite some time now. At 6-foot-5, he has great positional size and excellent athleticism. His defensive ability is what stood out Saturday, however, I was also impressed how he got his teammates involved. Jackson, a North Carolina commit, is also a good teammate — an underrated trait.

+ Elijah Moore was terrific as a shot maker, especially from the mid-range. He knocked in bucket after bucket. Confident player with the ball in his hands. Syracuse commit.

+ Annor Boateng has excellent size and strength. He can handle the ball, make reads in transition, and finds ways to score. Arkansas, Missouri, Ole Miss, and others are among those in the mix.

+ Peyton Marshall uses his size well (7-foot, 300-pounds). He’s strong, difficult to guard, causing the opponent to foul and send him to the strip. Good free throw shooter. Underrated aspect of his game: his passing. Former Auburn commit.

+ Mikel Brown Jr. is a fearless scorer and can get you a bucket whenever you need. He exudes confidence. Alabama and Texas Tech are his latest offers, joining Michigan, Auburn, Kansas, Kansas State, and others.

+ VJ Edgecombe is a speedy, athletic guard and has shown the ability to know down the three-point shot. His motor is always running high. An elite defender. Miami, Ohio State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Seton Hall, and others have offered.
