Every year it doesn’t matter how many games that we go to, some players go unseen and this article takes a look at some of the unranked prospects who may be on their way to being ranked over the next few months.

Lane Kervin

2019 guard Jalen Crowder (Reynolds HS)-Crowder put on a shooting display in the first quarter of the game I saw him against North Buncombe High School. Crowder made five 3-point shots in the first quarter and had a total of 24 points on 7 3-point baskets. He is a good size guard at 6-foot-2 and has one of the prettiest shots I have seen in a while.

2019 guard Rashod Chaffin (Erwin HS)-The high-scoring guard at Erwin High School is out for the season with a foot injury but he made his presence felt during the games he played this season. He can go out and get 25+ points on any given night and can score with anyone when he is attacking off the dribble. He will rest up over the next few months and be ready for the AAU season playing with The Upward Stars.

2018 guard Lane Kervin (Tuscola HS)-Kervin is a do-it-all player for The Mountaineers and goes a little under-the-radar at times. He is not flashy, he may not score 35 points but he does the little things that will lead his team to a win. He is a good shooter, that can consistently knock down shots when he gets the opportunity. He is a good defender and rebounder on both sides of the ball.

2019 guard Darlingstone Dubar (Rocky River HS)-Playing beside the top prospect in the 2020 class Jaden Springer, Dubar does a great job of involving Springer and getting buckets himself. He is a solid shooting guard that can score off the dribble or without the ball. He is athletic and can finish plays at the rim.

2019 guard Devin Bassett (Enka HS)-Bassett has been putting up great numbers this season for Enka High School. The two guard tandem of Bassett and Jake Smith have to be one of the best 1-2 punches in WNC basketball this season. Bassett is a consistent shooter from three-point land and can rattle off 5-6 in a row. He does a good job of getting others involved in the offense as well.
