The Palmetto State seems to be deep in the talent for the years to come. Prep Hoops SC is here to find some of those kids that might not play with that big money shoe team or on a major circuit or they meaning school is just off the grid at times.  Lets take a look at some kids who in my mind can play at the next level somewhere that we saw play this past week in our travels.

Dijon Goss

Dijon Goss – Carvers Bay HS  (pictured on front)

Goss 6’4 wing is off to a quick start this season for the Bears. The Bears lost to Conway HS 60-47 who eventually won the Panther Classic. Goss scored 14 points in the loss. Goss a preseason All-State Class A Selection was also a wide receiver in the North-South Football Game this past season.

Goss will more than likely have to entertain junior college according to Head Coach Jeff Mezzatesta.

Bryson Mozone

Bryson Mozone – North Augusta HS

Mozone 6’5 has grown since last season. Mozone a wing player has some NCAA D2 interest according to Yellow Jackets Head Coach Tony Harrell. Claflin (SC), Coker (SC) and Augusta State (GA) have all expressed interest. Mozone who has a really good stroke doesn’t ever seem to force shots and has the ability to defend multiple positions.

Seth Hewitt

Seth Hewitt – Boiling Springs

Hewitt 6’5 plays in the post for the Bulldogs. Prep Hoops first saw Hewitt this summer playing with the Upward Stars Upstate Silver team I believe it was. Hewitt is a deceptive athlete on the floor and plays with some grit and toughness. Hewitt rebounds on both sides of the floor and out of his area well.

Jordan Furlough

Jordan Furlough – St James HS (Murrells Inlet)

Furlough likes to play face-up and rightfully so he does it pretty well on the floor. Furlough 6’7 can knockdown shots out on the perimeter and behind the 3 point line.

Christian Waring

Christian Waring – Cathedral Academy (North Charleston)

Waring 6’0 plays at a very small school in Chuck Town. Waring has the ability to create his own shot. Waring connected on several 3 pointers today.

Cooper Chandler

Cooper Chandler – North Myrtle Beach HS

Chandler is a tough kid that really likes to leave it out on the floor. Chandler a scrappy guard can hit open jumpers on the floor or take a charge what ever needs to be done.

Ahkeem Lawson

Ahkeem Lawson – Lakewood HS

Lawson 6’6 left-handed post player didn’t play well this past weekend at the Panther Classic. Lawson has the potential to play at the next level but just needs to stay focused on and off the floor.

Amahn Anderson – Andrews HS

Anderson 5’9 plays at a fast tempo for the Yellow Jackets and has the ability to score the ball when given the chance.
