Grace Christian Junior Guard Nate Yow: The more time he spends on the court, the more he grows as a player. This year he stepped into the starting PG role at Grace Christian and gained some valuable experience all while making some noise in their league and in the national tournament. He was named to the NACA National Tournament All-Tourney team as well as winning the three point contest , this team will be one to watch for next season without a doubt.
EE Smith HS Senior Guard Isaac Bonds: EE Smith went on nice run in the Conference Tournament and that had a lot to do with the play of this young man. Overall he led the conference in Assist and Steals, was named 2nd Team All-Conference as well as earning All-Tournament honors. He accomplished all of this while maintaining a 3.75 GPA in the classroom, smaller colleges looking for a point guard should definitely hit him up.
Scotland County Senior Guard Niem Ratliffe: Getting buckets surely runs in the blood for this family as he is the young brother of current VMI Guard Jordan Ratliffe who had an outstanding high school career. Niem averaged 17 points a night this season and was very instrumental in the success of his squad, although he is only 5’10, he plays the game with heart and intensity. Schools looking for a player that can score the ball from the guard spot should give him a call.
Jack Britt HS Junior Guard Brandon Hayden: Throughout the season he missed some time for various reasons, but when he was on the floor you can see the potential in him. With a coach like Coach Walker guiding him in the right direction, we can be sure that he will continue to improve and become a college prospect.
New Hanover HS Senior Guard Ramello Williams: Just about every time we got the chance to see him play during the summer at various camps, he played at a high level. He understands how to get into the gaps of the defense but can also knock down the deep ball with nice efficiency.
Jacksonville HS Senior Forward Tyler Hines: His numbers from the season will not impress you but what you have to like about him is how hard he plays and what he brings to a team. Effort, Energy and intensity are his best assets to a team, he doesn’t quit on plays and is fine with simply going out and doing the dirty work.
