The 2019 class for North Carolina is strong from top to bottom. In the piece we take a look at some of the prospects in the class from WNC at the guard position that are Division II and III level prospects.

Malcolm Morgan 5’8 G Cox Mill HS HS-Plain and simple, this young man knows how to win games. He is not the tallest player, but he plays with the type of energy that makes you completely overlook his size.

Jalen Crowder

DaQuan George 6’5 G Shelby HS-Role player for his high school team but will continue to get better as time goes on. Always puts the team first, no matter if he’s playin major minutes or not he’s always engaged.

Jack Ritchie 6’0, G North Buncombe HS-Ritchie is a scorer, plain and simple. He does a good job with his athleticism of getting into the paint and finishing with either hand. He is physically strong guard that can muscle his way into traffic and find a way to score near the rim.

Jalen Crowder 6’3, G Reynolds HS-Crowder is one of the better shooters in the area and can consistently make shots beyond the three-point line. He has long arms and is a good defensive player. He does a good job of getting position from the guard spot for rebounds.

Brad Halvorsen 6’0 SG Christ School-Plays the combo guard slot for his high school team , can shoot it from deep when he’s playing the SG spot and can run a team when they move him to the PG spot. Where he makes the most impact is on the defensive end of the floor, he’s a physical defender but also quick laterally.
