Prep Hoops is all about watching the younger kids coming up the pipeline. This weekend at Big Shots Myrtle Beach 4 we were able to witness some of the future of the Palmetto State.
Ayden Hickman (2021) – Myrtle Beach HS – Big Shots South Carolina 2021
Hickman should see some good minutes this season for Head Coach Craig Martin. Hickman 6’2 has the ability to knock down shots on the perimeter. Hickman is crafty with the ball in his hands and plays with a very unselfish attitude on the floor.
Corey Graham (2021) – Manning HS – Carolina Hoopzters (pictured on front)
Graham is a physical specimen for such a young age. Graham usually plays with Upward Stars Southeast but this weekend he was running with the Carolina Hoopzters. Graham looks to over power players with his frame and really likes to bully defenders. Graham rebounds the ball well on both ends of the floor. Look for Graham to excel on the football field this season for the Monarchs.
Kyle Watkins (2021) – Carolina Forest H – Big Shots South Carolina 2021
Watkins started last year at times for the Panthers. Watkins a point guard plays with a good demeanor and really finds the open man well. Watkins 5’10 penetrates-kicks and has a nice mid-range jump shot.
Carlton Terry Jr (2022) – Conway HS – Team Wall Southeast-Marion 2022
Terry Jr. is the son of current Conway HS Football Coach Carlton Terry. Terry Jr. 5’8 must get better with ball pressure at the next level. Terry Jr. connected on some perimeter jumpers today. Terry Jr. attended Whittemore Park M.S. this past year.
Kylic Horton (2022) – Clarendon Hall (Summerton) – Team Wall Southeast-Marion 2022
Horton 6’4 saw good minutes for the Saints last season and averaged 14.9 ppg for the SCISA 1-A school. Horton has great length and plays on the perimeter. Horton a versatile wing player can score the ball at all 3 levels. Horton must get stronger and fight through contact but that will come in time over the next 4 years. Horton will play football this coming fall for the Saints.
