THE ELITE 32 Players

West Coast Elite 25 presents the Elite 32 awards recognizing players for their accomplishments, sportsmanship, competitiveness during the recent #Elite32Camp at Open Gym Premier..

Here are the Elite 32 players in no particular order:


2019 Amani Harris (Inglewood, CA/ Earl Watson Elite): One of the MVP Camp Finalists had a tremendous weekend. The athletic guard attacked the rim and competed a high level all weekend long.  His half-court steal during 2019 Top 20 game was the Defensive Play of the Camp.  Amani earned Top 5 2019 honors.



2023 Blake Hocker (Los Angeles, CA/ ARC): The nationally experienced and skilled guard brought his “A” game to the camp.  Blake’s shooting and passing skills were unmatched by anyone else at his grade level. Blake earned Top 5 Camp honors.


2020 Bryan Mex (Hawthorne, CA/ Earl Watson Elite): The gymrat spends so much time on his game that he makes everything look easy. Bryan’s poise, shot, high-level IQ and his hard work earned him an Elite 32 player nod.



2020 Bryce Monroe (San Francisco, CA/ Oakland Rebels): The NorCal native earned WCE25 MVP Saturday honors for completely dominating the competition during the first two camp games. His aggression, confidence and determination went unmatched at his grade level.


2021 Brandon Szeto (Arcadia, CA / SGV): Brandon is one of the major reasons the SGV 2021 team is ranked in the Top 10.  The skilled forward has soft hands, plays great team defense, and has a knack for hitting big shots.



2024 Colojeno Britt (Chatsworth, CA/ Dune Citi): Another gymrat that continues to excel at high level camps.  Outstanding court awareness and skill-set for such a young player. Colojeno earned Top 5 honors for the camp as well.



2021 Cruz Billings (Orange County, CA/ Open Gym Premier): The young point guard may be small, but he plays big like Magic Johnson.  Great vision, court awareness, leadership and confidence makes him an absolute beast. Cruz earned Top 5 Honors for his grade level at the camp.



2020 Deshawn Lynch (Sacramento, CA/ NorCal Spartans): Though he plays power forward, Deshawn is much more than that.  He is good natured young man that has an old school feel to his game.  His wrap around pass while leading a fast break was one of the more memorable camp plays.  Deshawn earned Top 5 camp honors for his grade.



2023 Donald Bluitt (Montclair, CA/ Dominators): The 2023 Camp MVP continues to develop as a savvy guard.  His floater and handle may not be fancy, but then again, while others may be working on their highlight video, this young man is busy working on his game.


2021 Donovan Watkins (Corona, CA / Earl Watson Elite): The young guard is skilled and savvy.  His motor and competitiveness ranked high among all campers.  He earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.


2021 Dylan Andrews (Gardena, CA / Gametime Elite): The 2021 Camp MVP may score in bunches, but its usually always done at the right time.  Dylan is very competitive and is always one to take the “big shot.”



2019 Elijah Scranton (Lancaster, CA/ Team Dojo): Elijah was one of the more impressive players at the camp. He earned Camp MVP consideration for his tough physical play and competitiveness.  One of the few players that also impressed the scouts in attendance.  Elijah earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.



2019 Ethan Anderson (Carson, CA/ City Stars): Ethan was the lone 2019 City Stars player in attendance; however, he made enough noise with his explosive finishes at the rim and mid-range jump shot to remind us that the team is fully loaded at guard.  Ethan ranks among the Top 20 2019 players out West.



2021 Isaiah Freeney (Phoenix, AZ/ AZ Diplomats): The young guard is skilled, can shoot, can pass, and just plays the right way.  Isaiah also has good understanding of how to use social media.


2019 Isaiah Mobley (Murrieta, CA/ I-10 Celtics): The Camp MVP and long skill forward made great strides over the weekend. With his confidence level at an all-time high, Isaiah’s skill level and length allowed him to compete and at times dominate at the elite level.


2019 Jack Engstrom (Palos Verdes, CA/ SPK): Jack is one of the more improved players in his class.  He is one of top shooters in his class that is crafty and can create to get his desired shot. We were impressed that after not being named to the Top 20 game, Jack went about his business and had a superb Top 40 game.  In addition, Jack showed great character by later posting on his Instagram account that he had an awesome experience our camp.


2022 Jaelyn Bates (Albuquerque, NM/ NM Real Hoops):  Yes, she is a girl.  Now that we got that out of the way, let’s just say she is a phenomenal player no matter the gender.  Highly skilled, poised, can shoot very well.  Jaelyn impressed enough to earn Top 5 honors at her grade level.


2019 Jaime Jaquez (Camarillo, CA/ Camarillo Dons): One of the more competitive players at the camp.  Competes at a high level, rebounds well, and continues to improve his skill-set.


2019 Jarod Lucas (Hacienda Heights, CA/ Earl Watson Elite): “Mr. Contact” received Camp MVP consideration.  Jarod has a great feel for the game, is a knock-down shooter and loves to mix-it-up. One of the few players who prefers contact when attacking the rim.  Jarod earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.



2022 R’Yaan Jiwani (Buena Park, CA/ JR Hoops): Really impressive skill-set. We were really impressed by how easy made the game look when competing in both the skills competition and games.  R’Yann earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.



2019 Junious Poole (Hayward, CA/ Oakland Rebels): Junious earned WCE25 2019 MVP honors for his Saturday play at the camp.  Junious can stretch the defense with his fairly consistent outside stroke and keep the defense on its heels with his nice ball handling ability.  He also showed that he can make difficult shots look easy.


2019 Jacob Ray (Los Angeles, CA/ Earl Watson Elite): Great footwork, improved jumper and greater confidence allowed Jacob to compete at a higher level at the camp and earned Camp MVP consideration. Jacob earned Top 5 at his grade level.


2021 Justin Ebor (Augora Hills, CA/ Hardwork Basketball): The young big had an excellent camp rebounding the ball and finishing near the rim.  Justin earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.


2019 Johnny Juzang (Tarzana, CA/ Earl Watson Elite): Johnny is one of the better shooters out West.  His mid-range jumper is always on target and his improved range.  High IQ player that will continue to develop.  Johnny earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.


 2022 Jalen Vazquez (Carson, CA/ LA Bobcats): Jalen has the ability to score from all levels.  His floater and midrange jumper make him difficult to contain. He also exudes a high confidence level for a player his age.  Jalen earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.


2022 Kai Davis (Steven Ranch, CA/ SoCal Spartans): The quick guard continues to improve.  Kai has a high motor, great IQ and competes on the defensive end.



2020 Keith Dinwiddie (Los Angeles, CA/ West Coast All-Stars): The super-aggressive combo guard showed off his new and improved game.  He is deceptively quick and can now change speeds to create space.  One of the more improved players at the camp.  Keith earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.


2022 Pejan Slater (Lancaster, CA/ Team Dojo): Pejan was dominant in the paint and earned MVP honors at his grade level.  Although he has a nice size advantage over most of his competition, Pejan can also mix it up from the perimeter.



2019 Ray Hawkins (Oakland, CA/ Cool Kids): The athletic wing performed well against the elite level competition.  Young Ray has a chance to become a major prospect if he can continue to develop his game.


2021 Javon Ruffin (Anthom, AZ / Ventura Vipers): Javon plays for and trains with some of Arizona’s best basketball training teams – Ventura Vipers.  His skill level and confidence are high.  Javon earned Top 5 honors at his grade level.



2019 William Chavrin (Oakland, CA/ Cool Kids): William’s game may go unnoticed at times, but he defines what it is to be Mr. Consistency.  He can shoot, defends well, makes the right pass, and is a great teammate. A thrill to watch.



2019 Matt Bender (San Diego, CA): Matt had his coming out party at the Elite 32 Camp.  Matt used his soft touch to dominate from the outside and his wide body to finish big inside.  We expect to see major development from this young man in the next few months.
