Talented 2026’s continue to emerge at EYBL – Atlanta Session

The 2026 class has been touted as a deep class over the last two years and this weekend proved why. These players are currently unranked in the class and have top 25-40 potential but that’s sure to change after this spring/summer.

We will be tracking these players, as well as others, as I’m certain more will emerge.

Christian Collins 6-8 SF (Why Not) Long wing with plus wing span. Collins affected the game on both ends, plays with a high motor and made critical plays down the stretch to get the win over Team United. Collins rebounded on both ends, can snatch the rebound, start the break and make the right play. He was really effective on rips and finishes in the lane and knocked down spot jumpers.

Jaron Saulsberry 6-6 W (Georgia Stars) is a long wing with next level bounce. He’s one of the most exciting players in the class on the break, finishing plays at the rim in a variety of ways (had 360 on the break), including his signature off hand dunk in traffic. Saulsberry has worked hard on his trey ball, knocking down quite a few this weekend. The one thing that is a separator for him is his desire to defend and take on the opponents top perimeter player. Stock Riser.

Miikka Muurinen 6-10 PF (Bradley Beal) the Finland native checks a lot of boxes. In my first viewing this weekend I was impressed with the range of his jumper, his ability to chase down defenders for blocks and the competitiveness he plays with. Maurinen is a very reliable defender on ball screens and an effective rim protector. I look for him to ascend after his play this spring.

Sheek Pearson 6-10 PF (Bradley Beal) fresh off an All-State selection and taking his high school to its first final four since 1953, Pearson is ready for a national breakout. He has leadership skills, always communicating to his teammates, can guard on ball switches and a very good rim protector. Pearson showed he can make the 15-17 footer and does a good job of trailing the ball, dunking misses.

PJ Singleton 6-6 SF (City Rocks) was first seen by us at the Underclassman All-American Game where showed he could make shots off the catch with range. What we didn’t catch was his consistent pull-up game, going in either direction. He’s a tough guard because you have to respect the catch and shoot but if you close out to aggressively he’s by the defender with a dribble into the pull-up. One of the better shooters I’ve seen thus far in the class.
