With a high amount of seniors still unsigned at this point, there are some players that JUCO schools should be reaching out to. Some players will need the time for development, others for academics but one thing is for certain, these youngsters can play the game on the next level.
West Columbus HS Forward Jake Brownlee: With Malique Jacobs off the board, Jake moves up as one of the top JC prospects in the state. Jake has put up some monster numbers this season and has picked up a high amount of interest from all types of JC programs across the country.
Riverside HS Point Guard Jadakis Bonds: His situation is a bit different than most, he is still deciding between playing football or basketball at the next level. If he chooses to take his talent to the hardwood, then schools should be all over him to go the JC route. He’s one of the top passers in the state as well as a top on ball player defender with nice athletic ability.
Smithfield-Selma Guard Kavon Ward: He’s quick with the ability to shoot the deep ball as well as defending other quick guards. As a player that averaged over 20 points this season, we are very confident that he could be a youngster that will come in right away and contribute at the right JC program.
Triton HS Guard Maurice Williams: Our first time seeing this young man play was in the first round of the state playoffs vs Terry Sanford HS. Although he didn’t have his best showing in the first quarter, he played the game at a very high level in the last 3 periods, finishing with 23 points. A year or two at the right JC program would be beneficial for him as he could fine tune some more aspects of his game.
New Life Christian Wing Arshon King: With this being his first year at a new program and back on the court for a full season, he showed some flashes of what he can do. He has a physique that will make you believe he is on the next level already and can score the ball nicely , once he gets hot from deep he is a very difficult player to defend, Wake Tech CC has already offered.
New Hanover HS Guard Freddie Taylor: Fred has been a player that we have kept our eye on for a few years now and will be one that can help a JC program without a doubt. He is a multisport athlete that spends a nice amount of time on the football field so you already know he has a toughness about him. Also he is a tremendous ballhandler that can make things very difficult for whoever is trying to guard him.
