- Olympic High School-The Trojans return one of the top seniors in the Queen City with 6-foot-4 Jalen Harris. The athletic wing averaged 16 points per game this past season. Olympic won the conference title with a 14-0 record last season but lost in the 1st round of the NCHSAA 4-A tournament. Other key players for Olympic High School are 2019 Jalen Barr and 2020 guard Josh Banks.
- Ardrey Tell High School-Head Coach Mike Craft has another strong team again this season returning David Kasanganay and his 14 points per game and Harper Hendricks. Transfers Stephen Sherrill (Hopewell transfer) and Luke Stankavage (Providence Day transfer). Stankavage is a 6-foot-1 guard
who is skilled and knows how to score. He is coming off a knee injury where he missed all of last season at Providence Day.
- Berry Academy-Head Coach Maurice Jones returns all-conference guard Maurice Brown again this season. He averaged 15 points per game last season. Also returning is 6 points per game from 6-foot-6 Anjay Cortez, along with Webster Filmore, a 6-foot-6 forward who averaged 9 points and 8 rebounds per game.
- Harding High School-Head Coach Walt Aiken brings back four starters from last season including senior guard Brian Ross and his 12 points per game last season. The other three returning starters are Arvydas Jones, Deandre Allen, and Quinten Thomas, who all averaged double-digits last season.
- West Mecklenburg High School-New Head Coach Jeffrey Berry has a solid core to work with this season behind Jalen Moore (12 points per game) Elijah Lockhart (11 points per game) and Jordan Williams (12 points per game). Berry is no stranger to the high school coaching world as this is his 25th season.
- South Mecklenburg High School-The Sabres return one starter from last season in Trey Jackson who averaged 4 points per game last season. Coach Fitch will have a young team this season and will have to have their best play to compete in the tough SoMeck7.
- Providence High School-Losing 26 straight games is tough for anyone. Providence finished 0-24 last season and a bright spot is they return three starters off of last seasons team. Pat Sullivan, Tate Mulkey and Ben Schloeder.
