Here is a look at some of the top available low-major to Division II prospects for the state of North Carolina.
Tai Giger 6’1 PG (Carolina Day)-Skilled guard who can get into the lane at will, strong upper-body and has a high basketball IQ. Does not have trouble finishing with contact in the lane with his broad shoulders and solid frame. He can shoot it consistently from beyond the three-point line and can hit mid-range jump shots. He is quick with the ball in his hands and can get by defenders.
Travon Mayo 6’5 F (Piedmont Classical)-Can play the forward spot and step out and play some guard but is most comfortable and productive in the post, he plays with the mindset that every rebound belongs to him.
Kenyon Burt 6’6 F (Garner HS)-Long scoring wing, can attack the paint from the perimeter and finish. He has a great size and uses his length to get deflections and disrupt passing. He is good at attacking the lane from the wing and finishing at the rim.
Deland Thomas 6’1 G (Rosman HS)-Smooth shooting guard that can light it up from outside, has a good handle and can defend the point guard spot. He is able to move well without the ball and can make the most of his scoring opportunities. He is a high IQ player that makes good decisions with the ball in his hands.
Cooper Crawford 6’0 G (Hough HS)-Crawford is a gym rat who does all of the little things really well, understands the game, gets rebounds and does what it takes to win.
Freddie Taylor 5’10 PG (New Hanover HS)-One of the best ball-handlers in the state, he’s smaller in stature but is a player that demands respect as soon as you watch him play. He is quick in the open floor and can make defenses miss.
