The Grassroots season has past us and school is just weeks away from starting here in the Palmetto State. Lets take a look at some players who had a great NCAA July Period that might be just enough Under the Radar Stock Risers.
Jamal Edmonson – Ashley Ridge HS (Summerville)
Edmonson is very consistent night in and night out. Edmonson will play his 6th year of varsity basketball this coming season.. Edmonson was first seen by Swanny’s Roundball Review when just a 8th grader at Stall HS. Edmonson then did 3 years at Northwood Academy after repeating the 8th grade. Last year was Edmonson first year for the Swamp Foxes. Edmonson brings production around the paint and really does well from his mid-range game and in to the basket. Edmonson 6’5 is still a bit of a TWEENER on the floor. Edmonson is close to approaching 2,000 career points in his career.
Nazae Baltimore – Aiken HS – Carolina Pressure
Baltimore 6’6 has been hampered by injuries the past year it seems. Baltimore came back this summer for the Carolina Pressure and performed well during the July Period. Baltimore 6’6 plays with his back to the basket and really shows to have soft hands in the paint. Baltimore will carve out space and isn’t afraid to draw contact.
Darius Boatwright – Dillon HS – Big Shots South Carolina 2019
Boatwright 6’7 is strictly a perimeter player for the Wildcats. Boatwright has great length and a 7’0 wingspan. Boatwright floats around the perimeter and shoots a high percentage of three pointers when given the opportunity. Boatwright has a skinny frame and sleek frame will more than likely need to entertain the junior college right after high school.
Frank Lee – Orangeburg-Wilkinson HS – Upward Stars Riverfront (pictured on front)
Lee is looking to have a big season for the Bruins this year. Lee 6’2 point guard has the ability to bully smaller guards and fight off defenders. Lee has looked a little trimmed down from when we saw him during the high school season. Lee has good size at the point guard spot and has the ability to knockdown open shots on the floor. Lee is a pass first point guard.
