The underclassmen in Marion-Williamsburg Counties look to be solid in the years to come. Prep Hoops takes a look at these players in this article. Several of these players play with Team Wall Southeast Marion 2021.
TJ Sanders (2021) – Marion HS (pictured on front)
Sanders came on strong last season for the Swamp Foxes with his play during the season. Sanders 6’4 averaged 11 ppg and 8 rebounds last season for the Swamp Foxes (21-8). Sanders has a great knack to score the ball from driving from the top of the key and finishing every time on the left-side. Sanders was first seen by Prep Hoops / Swanny’s Roundball Review when he was a 8th grader at Johnakin Middle School.
Sanders is the best underclassmen in this area between Marion-Williamsburg counties.
Aaron Parker (2020) – Hemingway HS
Parker is a vocal leader on the floor that shows great poise. Parker averaged 8 ppg and 3.1 rebounds last season for the Tigers 1A State Championship team. Parker uses the ball screen well and sees the floor very well. Parker has the ability to knockdown open shots on the perimeter.
Sammy Pressley (2020) – Mullins HS
Pressley is a combo forward that really excels in the transition game. Pressley 6’4 does his best work close to the basket with activity on the glass. Pressley plays bigger than his height at times. Pressley has seen good minutes for the Auctioneers since his freshman season. Pressley a tweener right now could develop into a perimeter player in the future.
CJ Gilchrist (2020) – Mullins HS
Gilchrist 5’5 likes to shoot the ball when he gets it. Gilchrist a volume shooter had some big games for the Auctioneers this season. Gilchrist must get better selection down the road.
AJ Vaught (2020) – Pee Dee Academy (Mullins)
Vaught a left-handed guard averaged 14.8 ppg this season for the Eagles.
Mac Washington (2021) – Marion HS
Washington plays at one speed and pace and that’s hard at all times. Washington never takes a play off and has the ability to knockdown shots on the perimeter. Washington 6’2 plays with a great demeanor on the floor and really can defend on the ball. Washington should look to get plenty of minutes this coming season for the Swamp Foxes and Head Coach Andre Weathers.
Sheldon Bradley (2021) – CE Murray HS (Greeleyville)
Bradley 6’6 tries to block everything in site on the floor. Bradley left the team last December 2017 for academic issues. Bradley resurfaced this spring with Team Stroke AAU at the Prep Hoops Series 3 in Myrtle Beach. Bradley has a lot of raw talent and potential for the future.
Notorius Grant (2021) – CE Murray HS (Greeleyville)
Grant 5’9 point guard still seems to be picking up the game of basketball. Grant plays defensive back on the football team for the War Eagles.
