Prep Hoops takes a look at some Unsigned Senior Guards we happened to see this past week before Christmas travels. Bret Swanson from Prep Hoops took in 3 events this past week. Here are some unsigned senior guards to follow up on.

Jermaine Patterson

Jermaine Patterson – Bluffton HS

Patterson can really score the ball and get to the rack quite easily. Patterson crafty with the ball seems at times a quick or 2 steps faster than his teammates. Patterson scored 34 points in a 2nd round game vs Myrtle Beach to help the Bobcats pull out the victory in overtime.

Patterson who averaged over 27 ppg last season season for the Bobcats suffered a ankle sprain in a game vs Carvers Bay in which happened just before halftime. Patterson was elected to play in the Shrine Bowl for football played AAU with Upward Stars Southeast 2018. Patterson went over 1,000 career points earlier this season.

Grant Singleton

Grant Singleton – Lakewood HS

Singleton averaged over 19 ppg for the 3 games at the Panther Classic. Singleton scored his 1,000 career point on opening night of the event in a win over Bluffton. Singleton can really trun the corner well and knock down shots on the perimeter.

Tez Collins – North Augusta HS (pictured on front)

Collins is the leader on the Yellow Jackets squad averaging around 13 ppg this season. Collins has received alot of NCAA D2 interest according to Head Coach Tony Harrell. The Yellow Jackets will play in the Pepsi Carolina Classic at West Florence HS starting this coming Wednesday.

Melvin McKie

Melvin McKie – South Aiken HS

McKie and his T-Breds suffered a lost the day when I was in attendance to eventual tourney champion McCallie School (TN). McKie has the ability to hit shots from all 3 levels on the floor.

Robert Swanson #2

Robert Swanson – Myrtle Beach HS

Swanson scored 36 points in round 2 loss to Bluffton in overtime. Swanson won’t overwhelm you with athleticism. Swanson is a crafty guard that has the ability to hit shots and can find his teammates open on the floor.

Shamar Matthews – Andrews HS

Matthews has been piling up some numbers this season for the Yellow Jackets. Matthews scored 32 points in a 2nd round game vs Cathedral Academy is a bit of a shot chaser at times. This Andrews offense likes to jeep it fast and create havoc so the opportunities and chances are there for shots.

Camry James

Camry James – Hunter-Kinard-Tyler HS (Neeses)

James likes to play fast for the Trojans. James 5’10 shows to have a high arching shot. James at times must settle down and play within the offense.
