This weekend was a big weekend for a group of high school basketball players in Colorado Springs USA Basketball U-16 Team.
It started with 39 prospects participating in the training camp and now we’re down to the final 18. From there, on day four, the selection will be officially completed. And some UNC basketball recruiting targets should hear their names.

Among the players that have stood out so far this weekend are some UNC goals. Krysten Peek of Yahoo! Sports and Rivals named three players that caught her eye after calling it “one of the most talented groups in recent memory,” as she listed Darryn Peterson, Cameron Boozer, and Koa Pete:
It’s Day 3 of U16 USA Basketball Tryouts and this is one of the most talented groups in recent memory. 2025 Darryn Peterson was incredible and a prolific 3-way scorer, while Cam Boozer and Koa Pete showed why they are top players in their class.

All three prospects mentioned have offers from North Carolina, including Boozer who landed one last week.
With the Tar Heels holding the No. 1 class early in the 2024 cycle, it would be huge to get off to a good start again for 2025. And UNC would love to have at least one of these candidates in their class.
