Miller’s stock is up after this weekend. The term is overused in today’s game, but he really has the tools and game to be considered a “big wing.” The 6-foot-10 junior flashed significant playmaking chops on the perimeter, knocked down jumpers with ease and protected the rim with his elite length and athleticism.

Miller moves extremely well around the court and showed off verticality on both ends, violently blocking shots and trying to tear the rim down with loud dunks. He’s one of the more intriguing prospects in the 2024 class and will be closely monitored this spring.

Texas, TCU, LSU and Colorado are all involved with Miller’s recruitment, and he’s trying to set up visits to LSU and Alabama.



O’Neal Jr., son of former 18-year NBA veteran forward Jermaine O’Neal, has started to fine-tune parts of his game and showed off some very positive traits this weekend. He was good at getting downhill and getting into the paint, and has polished his finishing some in the past year.

He also let outside shots go with confidence and knocked down some very crisp-looking jumpers on the weekend. O’Neal plays with a high IQ and made winning plays throughout his games. The 6-foot-5 wing has the pedigree and developing game to keep making a push up the 2025 rankings.

O’Neal has been in contact with Oregon, USC, Boise State and Texas.



Perry was arguably the most gifted athlete in the gym this weekend regardless of class. He played above the rim and made jaw-dropping plays in every showing. The 2026 prospect showed more than being just an athlete, however.

He possesses upside in all facets and really played a clean game when he was on the court. Perry scored the ball at the rim and showed off nice finishing ability, and he also displayed a promising jumper and defensive instincts. He’s definitely a player to watch in the initial 2026 rankings.

Perry has received early interest from Mississippi State, North Texas, LSU, SMU, TCU, Tarleton State and UT-Arlington.
