John Lucas BeElite Standouts

Title – John Lucas BeElite Standouts

HOUSTON, TX – The John Lucas “BE Elite” Invitational which took place this past weekend put on display some of the country’s top prospects under one roof. Make5’s Darnell Johnson & Reginald Burke made the rounds to highlight the weekends top performers.

Mazi Mosley | 2025 | 6’5” G | CA

He started a little slow, and you could tell he was pressing a little early in camp, but once he settled down, he showed why his stock has risen over the last six months. He plays with great pace and he’s real smooth with the ball. Offensively he can score in a variety of ways. His court vision was on display this past weekend. As he adds strength, I would like to see him more aggressive on defense.

Xavion Staton | 2025 | 7’1” C | NV

It was our first time getting a good look at Staton and we were highly impressed with his energy and athleticism. He made his presence felt in a dominate way on the defensive end, consistently contesting shots and gobbling up rebounds in his area. He was able to switch and guard multiple positions. He’s limited offensively but with motor and commitment to the game, that will show in time.

John Clark | 2025 | 6’8” F | TX

This was my second time seeing Clark play and I came away highly impressed. His playing making skills for a big may be his bet attribute. He showed handles that allowed him to make plays for him and his teammates. He plays above the rim on both ends, using his athleticism to finish plays and as a defensive disrupter. When he locked down on defense, he made it really difficult for the opposing team. I expect a big season and rise out of Clark.

Hudson Greer | 2025 | 6’7” G/F | TX

He was one of the most complete players in camp. He will surprise you with his athleticism while making scoring look easy. Defensively he is good on the ball and his IQ makes him a threat in the passing lanes. You can see why basketball heads in Texas have been raving about him.

Cameron Ward | 2025 | 6’7” SF | MD

He competes at the highest level on both ends. He’s always a threat to get downhill and does it with ease. What makes him an effective player is his non-stop motor, always around the action. His offensive game needs to be refined but you can’t teach effort and that’s where he wins.

Sebastian Williams-Adams | 2025 | 6’8” F | TX

We’ve had the privilege of watching Williams-Adams game expand over the last few years and its been very impressive. He has size, skill and his IQ has improved over the years. Like a player trying to understand pace, he is now seeing the importance of when to make a power play and when to finesse.. With two years remaining we should see that improvement.

Christopher Cenac Jr. | 2025 | 6’10” F | LA

Cenac was very effective transitioning from defense to offense, possesses good ball-handling skills, a valuable asset with his ability to play multiple positions. However, what’s excites me is his desire to be an offensive rebounder. He has a knack for getting to the right spot and giving his team second chance opportunities. On the defensive end he triggers the break with his outlet passes, leading to easy scoring opportunities in transition. While not an elite shooter, he has a decent three-point shot, which is a valuable weapon in today’s game. His versatility allows him to play multiple positions in the frontcourt.

Christian Thomas | 2025 | 6’6” G/F | MD

With him coming to Houston this year to attend C.E King H.S., it just adds to the talent pool in the city. He competes from the jump ball to when the clock shows double zero. He showed the ability to get to the basket, where he finished or drew fouls. He is a willing passer, finding his teammates for layups or open jumpers. His motor allows him to stay involved in plays throughout the game and on both sides of the floor.

Tee Bartlett | 2025 | 6’11” C | CA

Standing tall, Bartlett is an imposing figure who undoubtedly captures the attention of coaches and scouts when he steps on the court. His physical attributes, notably his strong passing ability and reliable hands, make him stand out. Bartlett is a player with a package that presents an intriguing prospect. His impressive physical presence, combined with a unique skill set, suggests that he has the potential for substantial growth. To unlock this potential, Bartlett’s commitment to conditioning and improving his lateral movement will be essential. With dedicated effort in these areas, he has the potential to evolve into a formidable force on the court, making him an exciting prospect for the future.
