The level of basketball around the largest city in North Carolina is abundant. Here is a look at some of the top small college prospects in and around the Charlotte area. 

6’5, 2018 W Jaiden Hunt (Shelby HS)

Hunt transferred before his senior season from Cherryville High School and has been a bright spot for Head Coach Aubrey Hollifield and Shelby High School. Blessed with a high-level of athleticism, Hunt is a player that can finish plays above the rim consistently, can knock down mid-range jump-shots, and can rebound. He is a long-armed wing that gets a lot of his points on his ability to slash to the basket.

6’4, 2019 SG Jalen O’Neal (Concord HS)

O’Neal is an athletic scoring guard that can attack the basket off the dribble. He has a nice feel for the game and doesn’t force anything. He is able to score from the perimeter and he can score in the paint. He has nice size for his position that allows him to get his shot off over smaller guards.

6’5, 2018 W Blake Wilson (Hunter Huss HS)

Wilson is a scoring wing that has been the go-to-guy for Hunter Huss this season. He has put up good numbers at the wing position scoring 25 points per game on any given night.

6’0, 2018 PG Malcolm Wade (United Faith)

Malcolm is a floor general with great vision, a strong handle and an automatic midrange jumper. Malcolm plays solid defense and is a highly competitive athlete. He belongs in an uptempo offense with a press defense.

6’4, 2018 SG Jamarius Hairston (Carson HS)

Mari is an amazing athlete. He boasts an impressive vertical and uses it for great lift and separation on mid-range jump shots. He’s nearly automatic inside the 3 point line. Mari is a bit of a tweener on the wing while he continues to work on his ball handling.

6’0, 2018 G Cooper Crawford (Hough HS)

Crawford is a gym rat who does all of the little things really well, understands the game, gets rebounds and does what it takes to win.

6’8, 2018 F Micale Harris (Hopewell HS)

Harris can dominate the glass on both ends of the floor, he is very agile at 6’8″ and gets up and down the court very well, he has the ability to play some stretch-four at the college level. He is able to knock down shots from the outside, and can take it to the rack and finish their as well.
