The Mountain West Invitational took place from Friday, April 23rd until Sunday, April 25th. Hosted by Vegas Elite, the event featured over 100 programs across 8 different divisions. The Middle School Divison of the event was loaded with talent. With so many prospects it was impossible to fit them all into one article. So in this article, a follow-up to our standouts Vol 1 article, we take a look at some more standouts from the event.
Anthony Felesi SF Utah Swat 2026 – Felesi is a good-looking active young player. He has a nice iso game, showing the ability to create for himself. The long rangy forward was a dynamic rebounder. Grabbing both in and out of area rebounds at a high level.
Jevon Yapi 5’8 PG All Vegas 2025 – At this point I think of Yapi as a Heavyweight fighter, taking on all comers. He continued his strong spring play this weekend. I’m comfortable describing his vision and passing as elite, as he sees plays frames ahead and has the instinct and touch to walk the ball into the hands of teammates with every pass he makes.
Kayden Arnold 5’4 PG Vegas Elite 2026 – Arnold’s skills consistently wore on me throughout the weekend. He played with a nice burst, showing a solid handle and the ability to beat opponents off the dribble. He has good mechanics for a young player on his shot, with natural range out to the H.S 3.
Jaylen Jordan 5’4 SG Vegas Elite 2026 – Jordan made an impression on me this weekend. The VE 7th grader is a smooth scorer, with the ability to knock down shots from behind the arc.
Jerimiah Williams SG CME 2028 – Williams is a long prospect that displayed solid offensive skills. He shot the ball accurately out to the college 3 and played with good aggression going after rebounds in traffic.
Sebastian Knox 6’1 SG All Vegas 2025 (featured image)– Knox did a great job of showing his ability this weekend. The lefty got to the basket with drives to his strong hand and was one of the fastest players I saw in transition.
Corbin Hansen SG Utah Supreme 2025 – One of the top transition scorers from the weekend. Hansen seemed to always be out ahead of the pack finishing. He has a basketball frame, long arms, and above-average foot speed. He is a prospect to keep an eye on moving forward.
