The Las Vegas Classic is here! Hosted by Bigfoot hoops, the classic is one of the most prestigious grassroots tournaments in America. The event runs from Wednesday, July 27th, and concludes Sunday, July 31st. Bracket play got underway. Several players had standout performances as it was survive or go home. In this article, a follow-up to Bracket Play Standout Part 1 we take a look at more standout players from Saturday.
Jayden Stewart 5’7 PG CME Bulls 2028 – At 5’7 Stewart has some length to his frame. He’s quick and is a decent athlete. The guard was also able to get out and score in transition. The 12-year-old floor general was the top player for his Bulls squad.
Jamarion Taylor 5’11 SF CME Bulls 2026 – Taylor has a tremendous frame, and he used it well. Long arms with good definition, the forward was effective playing downhill and attacking the rim. He has advanced strength for a player his age and played with energy and a high motor in the game I watched.
Aaron Britt Jr 5’9 PG Tre Mann Elite 2027 – Britt was a bucket getter. The scoring PG showed good quickness, as well as the ability to turn defense into offense. He used his speed to get out in transition and finish.
Tommy Tofi 6’7 PF SF Rebels 2026 – Massive big-bodied banger with soft hands. Tofi spent the day fighting off defenders while battling for low post position. He showed good hands and concentration. The lefty was able to finish with his strong hand while catching passes cleanly in conflict.
Adren Isaac Parras 6’10 C Iso Jo 2027 (featured image) – Impossible to ignore a young player of this size. Parras is more than just a tall player, he runs like a deer and showed the ability to change ends fluidly. In addition to his rim running skill, the 7th-grade center showed a knack for winning 50/50 rebounding opportunities.
Sarafin Mendez 6’3 C Northern NM C 2026 – I could easily see Mendez transitioning to a faceup four. The rangy 5 man moves well and showed good feel for the game. He did a good job of hitting jumpers and cutters, showing a good offensive skill set in the game I watched.
Jerry Anderson 5’0 PG The Program 2027 – I liked everything I saw from Anderson on Saturday. He used his quickness, and wiggle to destroy pressure, either getting all the way to the rim or kicking to teammates. He played with moxie and toughness proving to be a scrappy on-ball defender. His intangibles may be his best skill, as the young player is a competitive leader that seemed to be an extension of his coach when on the floor.
Deandre Speed 5’9 SG The Program 2027 – Speed is aptly named. His ability to be faster than his opponents allowed him to get to the rim in transition. The guard did a good job of finishing his opportunities. He was decent playing through contact and showed good motor saving and competing for loose balls.
Ten Nagao 5’10 PG Houdini Problems 2026 – The Houdini Problems made the trip from Japan to participate in the event. Nagao was one of the players they spoke highly off. He didn’t disappoint. He has a good handle and some shiftiness to his game. Nagao is an offensive weapon that splashed several threes from out past the college three-point line.
