College programs are always in the need of post players. Prep Hoops takes a look at some post players here in the Palmetto State that won’t be on many schools radars. Some of these post players are not your conventional big players in the paint. 

 

Leon Goldsborough

Leon Goldsborough – Chester HS 

Goldsborough 6’3 (250) undersized post is quite nimble on his feet. Goldsborough averaged 12 ppg last season for the Cyclones. Goldsborough has great mitts in the paint and isn’t afraid to make contact. Goldsborough told Prep Hoops that he wasn’t playing football this coming season. Goldsborough played with a local team the Rock Hill Ballers on the Grassroots Circuit. 

 

Reggie Harris Jr. – South Pointe HS (Rock Hill)  (pictured on front)

Harris 6’7 has the ability to set screens and seal. Harris has a nice touch from 8-10 feet on the floor. Harris carves out space in the paint and works for position down low. Harris Jr. played with the Fort Mill Knicks on the Grassroots Circuit. 

 

Twanye Butler

Twanye Butler – C.E. Murray HS (Greeleyville)

Butler really plays off the grid down in Williamsburg County for the War Eagles. Butler 6’4 is a jumping jack with his great leaping ability. Butler plays so much bigger than his size on the floor.  Butler plays his best basketball from 2-4 feet around the basket. Butler really excels in the transition game. Butler has no problems defending a bigger post in the paint. 

 

Marcus Moore

Marcus Moore – Socastee HS (Myrtle Beach) 

Moore 6’8 is a late bloomer for the Braves program. Moore runs the floor very well and rebounds the basketball. Moore moves his feet well and still needs to work on finishing better around the rim. Moore played with a local Grassroots Circuit team in the Confidence Cougars. Moore seems to be a very coachable kid. Moore should see some good quality minutes for the senior heavy Braves this year.
