Manheim, PA — The Spooky Nook Sports Complex played host to the A-Game Super Shootout which was absolutely loaded with talent across the board. In an action packed two days, Prep Hoops Next was able to evaluate prospects from each middle school age group. In this article I take a look at some of the top performers from the 8th grade platinum division.

Diakite has been on the national scene for quite some time now and this past weekend in Manheim at the A-Game SuperShootout he reminded us why he is considered one of the top prospects in the class of 2025. Diakite finished everything above the rim with multiple two handed dunks and altered many shots. Diakite did everything we expected to see of him leading his New York Lightning team to the 8th grade platinum championship ultimately beating Team Thrill in the finals.
