The 2023 SLAM High School All-American class is stacked.
As the game continues to evolve, this group of young standouts represent the future ahead. From elite guards to versatile small forwards, they’ve caught the attention of top college programs around the country, as well as the world.
Meet our 2023 SLAM HS Boys All-Americans:
Basketball runs in DJ Wagner’s blood. He’s the son of former Memphis one-and-done star and NBA player Dajuan Wagner, and the grandson of Louisville legend and NBA player Milt Wagner. Wagner was the NJ Gatorade Player of the Year and is a top name in the No. 1 ranked recruiting class at Kentucky
Home is where his heart is. Isaiah Collier is one of the top ranked guards in his class and has family roots in Cali: his mother originally lived in Compton and his brother currently lives in Los Angeles. The talented guard is sure to make a statement at USC.
Justin Edwards has proven why he’s a top recruit with his shot making, defensive versatility and toughness as a finisher. After leading Imhotep to its second consecutive state championship, he’ll bring that winning experience to Kentucky this fall.
Jared McCain is a straight-up star. Whether he’s putting on a scoring clinic on the court or continuing to build his brand off of it on social media, McCain makes waves no matter what he’s doing. With his high IQ and work ethic, he’ll fit right in at Duke.
Matas Buzelis’ pro-ready game speaks for itself. The 2022-23 Kansas High School Basketball Player of the Year has decided to bypass college and take his talents to the NBA G-League Ignite next season. He also has his sights set on the NBA Draft, but until then, it’s all about dominating.
