Trinity of Durham Junior Guard Noah Dinkins: Noah is a player that can flat out put the ball in the bucket, he scores from just about every spot on the floor and has deep range. When the game came down to the wire, his squad looked to him to provide the offense and he did not disappoint. After the game he informed me that he has been getting interest from Ivy League programs.

Holly Springs Junior Forward/Center Kadin Shedrick: At this point in his development he is still perfecting his craft but he has a nice amount of upside at the 6’8-6’9 height range. He seems to be comfortable when he catches the ball in the post and faces up to his defender. The next step for his development will be to add some more upper body strength so that he will be able to be productive through contact.

Trinity of Durham Junior Wing Marcotis Hall: He’s a versatile player that can play on the wing or go inside and be just as efficient. At 6’5 he has good height for a wing to go along with his overall skillset, one attribute that will impress you about him is his IQ and patience on the offensive end of the floor.

Richmond County Senior Wing Da’Shaun Wallace: His scoring was bigtime for the squad in their 3rd place game matchup, his ability to slash to the basket or score in transition. One thing you notice about him almost immediately is the amount of confidence that he plays the game with.

Windsor Forest HS Senior Wing Malcolm McCloud: If you could give a highlight for a missed dunk, his probably would have made it on quite a few mixtapes. He came down the lane and attempted a monster dunk over two defenders that hit the back of the rim, just that play alone shows you what time of athleticism he brings.

Windsor Forest HS Senior Forward Juwuan Davis: Juwuan was one of his team’s most productive players, he finished inside offensively and battles for rebounds all game long. On the defensive end he possess the ability to defend multiple positions with his height and agility. It honestly looks as if he has already spent quite a bit of time in the weight room when you look at his physique.

New Life Christian Junior Forward Latrell Jones: Trell was one of the bright spots for the Monarchs, he found gaps in the defense and attacks the basket at a nice rate. Although he is a strong player, he also has some finesse in his game with the way he’s able to shoot the ball as well as finishing below the rim.

Pinecrest HS Freshman Guard Bradley Haskell: Bradley is playing his way into the mix of being a player in the class of 2021 that folks should be talking about. He plays the game with a nice amount of poise, and confidence, bring a feel for the game that is very mature for his age. There is no doubt in my mind that if he continues to work, he will be a special players.
