While they have just started the seventh grade, the 2027 class may have been the most impressive group amongst both the Futures Camp and Generation Next All-Star Camp. Even with all the talent in the group one player truly stood out from the rest to run away with the MVP honors. Those honors were won by Jaxson Davis, a 5’10” guard of and Illinois Central Elite. 

Even in the first few minutes of the first game it was very clear Davis was just on another level from the rest. By halftime of his first game, he nearly recorded a triple double, falling just a rebound and steal short of the mark. Overall on the day, Davis averaged a whopping 30 points, 6.5 steals, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists per game while leading his team to an undefeated record. 

In all areas of the game, Davis was purely dominant. His play stood out in many areas, one being one the defensive end. He did a tremendous job of putting plenty of pressure on the ball to force turnovers in bunches and turn them into transition baskets the other way. With his athleticism, size, and quickness he was relentless getting all over the ball and creating havoc for the opposition. While he scored the ball plenty going hard to the basket in the half court and transition while finishing everything in plenty of traffic, there is much more to his scoring ability. He moves very well with the ball in his hands to have a good ability to create for himself and hit shots off the dribble from the perimeter. The guard showed good feel for the game not forcing anything offensively to have an efficient day even while putting up the 30 points a game while shooting 77.8% from the field. Davis is a gifted playmaker that plays well beyond his years. 

After playing up one or even two age groups on the GNBA with Illinois Central Elite and still being a standout amongst older players, the game just seemed to come extremely easy to him while playing with players of the same age group during this camp. While it is still very early in his playing career as a seventh grader, Davis is defiantly a name to track if he continues his current trajectory.
