Explosiveness is a trait that many of the best basketball players in the country have either at the college level or at the professional level. A few players in the western North Carolina region posses a level of explosiveness that will help them get to the next level. In this article we take a look at a few of those special players.

WNC’s Most EXPLOSIVE Players 

2019 PG Jalen Lecque (Christ School)-The high-flying junior point guard is one of the most explosive players in the country and is being recruited at the highest level for a college prospect. Lecque has the ability similar to that of Zion Williamson to change the momentum of a game with his dunking ability and his explosiveness while going to the basket. He is blessed with a vertical leap that has to be in the mid-40’s, and large hands that allow him to finish

dunks well above the rim. He almost seems to hang in the air on his attacks to the basket and most of them end with an emphatic dunk. He has expanded his game to include a consistent jump-shot and a better ability to handle the basketball. He now has a large arsenal to go with his jumping ability.

2019 SF Ren Dyer (North Buncombe HS)-Dyer is one of the toughest players that I have covered in my time evaluating prospects in the state of North and South Carolina. Dyer also has the explosiveness to his game that can rival anyone in the area. He has a way of taking the ball to the basket with his strength and athletic ability that makes the defenders almost have to get out of the way. He is able to finish at the rim with either a dunk or a strong lay-in. He has toughness written all over his game and he uses it to his advantage on every possession.

2020 F Justice Ajogbor (Christ School)-Ajogbor has only been playing in the United States for right at two and a half years and has already picked up offers from some of the top programs in the country. He is a 6-foot-9 monster when he catches the offensive rebound and flushes the ball back through the hoop. He is a broad shouldered forward that rebounds well and uses his explosiveness when attacking the rim and blocking shots.
