With his talent, floor impact, and consistency, Yusef Gray Jr. was able to earn Co-MVP honors for the 2026 class at the NY2LA Generation Next All-Star Camp. Even with all the great talent present at the camp the 6’1” point guard more than deserved the award with everything he showed throughout the camp. 

Not only did Gray win the Co-MVP award, but came away with a trio of awards on the day. The point guard was also awarded the Top Prospect Award and Floor General Award for his class. He was able to win these awards while putting up a well-rounded stat line of 17.5 points, 6 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 2 blocks per game while leading his team to an undefeated record on the day. Plus, he also shot 60% from the field with a 4.5-to-1 assist to turnover ratio. 

Gray is a multi-dimensional and athletic two-way point guard. While still in middle school, he has an advanced skill set and knows how to play. He is an explosive playmaker who excels especially while attacking the basket. Gray is an incredibly shifty guard that was able to get to the basket very well in addition to great vision while on the move. As well on the offensive end, Gray shot it at 38% from beyond the arc. 

More than just a threat on offense, he was also one of the top defensive guards at the camp. All camp he played with great intensity on the defensive side using his quickness to get all over opposing guards pressuring the ball. Not only does he have good athleticism and quickness but also plays with some physicality.  

The future looks bright for Gray if he continues to play at this same high level. He is a guard to track as he moves into high school next year.
