Prep Hoops SC is all about COVERING the whole Palmetto State when it comes to finding players. Prep Hoops SC takes a look at the guard play in the Western Part of the State in this article.

Tyrek Walls

Tyrek Walls (2018) – Fox Creek HS (North Augusta)

Walls arrived this off season from North Augusta HS. Walls averaged 5 ppg and 4.5 assists last season for the Yellow Jackets. Walls is the leader of the Predators offense this season and Head Coach Andrew Peckham.

Melvin McKie (2018) – South Aiken HS (pictured on the front)

McKie 5’9 can score the ball well for his size. McKie makes up a great back court mate with Scott. McKie averaged 15 ppg as a junior. McKie played with a second tier AAU program in the Carolina Chaos (Aiken area) this past summer.

Cincere Scott

Cincere Scott (2020) – South Aiken HS

Scott just a sophomore has the ability to create his own shot. Scott has a high arching shot and likes to shoot the ball from the corners.

Dejuan Bell (2018) – North Augusta HS

Bell a point guard will take his talents to Furman University next season to play football.

Omarion Byrd (2020) – North Augusta HS

Byrd a off guard can knockdown the 3 ball at a high percentage. Byrd scored 24 points the other night vs Lakeside (GA). Byrd hit 6 three pointers on the night. Byrd averaged 9.3 ppg last season while connecting on 41% from three point range.

Russell “RJ” Felton

Russell “RJ” Felton (2021) – North Augusta HS

Felton is going to be a good one in this 2021 class. Prep Hoops first saw back in March playing AAU with the Upward Stars Riverfront. Felton 6’1 is quite poised on the floor and also dabbles around on the football field. Head Coach Tony Harrell has a reason to smile with this back court this season and for the years to follow.

Felton scored 20 points in victory over Lakeside (GA).

Kevin Williamson

Kevin Williamson (2018) – Aiken HS

Williamson is a ultra athletic kid that really excels in the transition game. Williamson plays with a high motor.

Hall is on a talented team with the Fighting Green Hornets. Hall is strong to the rack with the ball.

Jadakiss Wright

Jadakiss Wright (2018) – Silver Bluff HS

Wright is back to lead the Bulldogs. Wright a combo guard seems to play better off the ball and has a deep stroke on his shot.

Tyson Bettis
