Day 1 of Next Future Stars Classic is in the books! The event was stacked with talent. Each team and player displayed impressive skills on the floor.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the Top Standouts from Day 1 at the Champions Center in Appleton, Wisconsin.
Rylan Buhr | Wisconsin Playground Club 2028
Buhr was getting it done inside! He made plays out of the paint extremely well. His soft touch inside proved to be very productive for his team’s success. That soft touch carried over to the free throw line where he appeared to be very confident. Buhr’s team finished the day 3-0, ending with a 21 point team-win over Wisconsin Crusaders.
Logan Ramczyk | Grind Elite 2027
Another team that went 3-0 on Day 1, Logan was a huge part of that success. He used his size to shoot over smaller guards extremely well on Day 1. Not only was his size an issue for opponents but he showed a stroke from range that proved to be difficult to defend.
Grant Hardy | Wisconsin Playground Club 2026
Hardy was a beast in the paint! His game speaks for itself. His patience and footwork on the floor allowed him to fill up the stat sheet for Wisconsin Playground Club. Most noticeably, Hardy is simply just a dominant athlete. He makes a strong impact on both ends. He consistently used his strength to make the right plays at the right times. His squad finished 2-1 on the day.
Zavion Davis | All Wisconsin 14U Leland
Davis impressed me with his balanced attack on the floor – he scored from all three levels of the floor today. He has a nose for the basket – he’s a player that can consistently get buckets for his teammates regardless of who they are playing against. He has an extremely impressive ability to slash that makes his offensive play a main reason his team sees success.
Tishawn Clemmons | Team Illinois 2026
Clemmons was a difference-maker today! He proved to be the key floor spacer for his team. The Team Illinois standout was knocking down shots from range while still finding a way to effectively facilitate his teammates. Clemmons led his team to an undefeated record on Day 1.
Jaden Boyd | 12 Deep WI 2026
Boyd was one of the biggest stock risers after this event. I’ve seen him play before but I was extremely impressed Day 1 with the offensive game of Boyd. He’s a clear floor general for this 12 Deep WI group. He has a “never-let-up” attitude that was exciting to watch but more importantly, was contagious for his teammates. His agility and strength allowed him to get to his spots and knock it down all afternoon.
JJ Zavatchin | CBA North 2026 Gold
Another player making noise in the paint! Zavatchin may have had the best post play presence during Day 1. His ability to pivot under pressure stood out – he remained calm on the block and did not allow defenders to rush his movements. He helped lead his team to a 3-0 record on Day 1.
Teague Cornell | Fox Valley Kings 2028
Cornell is the lead guard for his squad. He picks spots well within the offense – displaying advanced IQ on the court. He had great production on the floor, he took advantage of what the defense gave him. I was impressed by his ability to take over the game while also having the awareness to get his teammates involved.
