Prep Hoops / Swanny’s Roundball Review UNSIGNED Event featured 64 players. Lets take a look at some of the undersized post players from the event in this article.
Quan’Daveon McCollum – Marlboro County (Bennettsville)
McCollum 6’5 was active all day in the post. McCollum always seemed to be in the right position for put-backs on the glass. McCollum at times looks to lumber up the floor. McCollum averaged 18.8 ppg and 9 rebounds this season for the Bulldogs.
Jalian Smith – Darlington HS
Smith 6’5 is a good athlete but lacks a skill package. Smith a quick leaper at times will roam to the perimeter but seems to be better in the post as 4/3 type. Smith averaged 11.4 ppg, 7.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks for the Falcons this season.
Seth Hewitt – Boiling Springs HS (pictured on front)
Hewitt 6’5 always seems to be productive when we see him play. Hewitt knows where his bread is buttered around the cup. Hewitt finishes with his left-handed quite well despite being right-handed. Hewitt is a deceptive athlete on the floor.
Joshua Aldrich – New Hanover HS (Wilmington, NC)
Aldrich is a coach’s son and really excels in the classroom with a 4.7 GPA. Aldrich 6’6 can play as a undersized post player or a 4/3 combo forward. Aldrich runs the floor very well and has a good skill package. Aldrich averaged 10 ppg and 7 rebounds this season for the Wildcats. Aldrich doesn’t seem to play with any of emotions but just really plays the game very well and seems very coachable.
Kevon Drayton – Loris HS (Loris)
Drayton 6’5 has a slender-sleek frame. Drayton plays very active on both sides of the floor. Drayton averaged 8.1 ppg and 9.8 rebounds this season for the (19-1) Lions.
Jaquan Chestnut = Myrtle Beach HS
Chestnut 6’4 is a undersized post that can really rebound the ball on both sides of the floor. Chestnut has attended classes this season at Limestone College (SC) but didn’t play on the team. Chestnut will look to enter a junior college next season. Chestnut nicknamed “Slim” averaged a double-double while playing for the Seahawks as a senior.
