Here is a look at some of the top Division II and III prospects in North Carolina for the senior class.
5’11 PG Freddy Taylor (New Hanover HS)-One of the quickest guards in the state. He is a hound on the defensive end and can lock down the opposition’s guards. He does a good job of finding the open man in transition and can finish at the rim. He is a solid shooting guard that doesn’t make many mistakes.
6’5 SF Jay Walton (Enka HS)-The athletic wing for Enka High School is physically gifted for a high school senior and uses that athleticism to throw down big dunks and block shots. He is a good rebounder and is a strong defender. He needs some work on the offensive side with shooting the ball more consistently but he has the tools to be a legitimate college prospect.
6’3 G Zyrion Wilkins (RS-Central HS-A scoring guard that can fill it up. He has the size to shoot and score over smaller guards and can get in the paint and rebound with his size. He is a good ball-handler and can take defense’s off the dribble. He has a quick first step and can finish when he gets into the paint.
6’0 PG Tajii Moore (Kinston HS)-Moore has a strong change of pace and does a good job of getting his teammates involved. He can ever a lot of ground on the defensive end of the floor. He would make a really good guard at the Division II level and comes from a city in North Carolina that just has a different level of basketball talent.
6’2, SF Shiquan Cox (Triton HS)-He is an athletic small forward, with a college ready body. He plays the small-forward spot for Triton and is a little undersized for the position but makes up for it with his athletic ability and his physical size. He can rebound with the bigger forwards and is quick enough to get around the bigger players at his position.
6’6 F Myles Washington (Hough HS)-He is able to knock down the mid-range shot and make it consistently. He is physically a beast in the paint and does a really good job of rebounding and getting position in the post.
