The new school year has arrived here in the Palmetto State. Kids are settling in and Prep Hoops is here for all the latest coverage in South Carolina. Lets take a look at some 2020 players that we expect to have breakout seasons in this article.
Traveon Davis – Clarendon Hall (Summerton) (pictured on front)
Davis arrived at the SCISA 1A school this off season from nearby Lake Marion HS. Davis 6’4 played with Upward Stars-Southeast 2020 this past summer on the Grassroots Circuit. Davis really elevates well on his shot and has the ability to rack the rim off the dribble. Davis should see his stat line go up this season while playing with the Saints and along the side of Zyan Gilmore.
Ahmad Brown – Ashley Ridge HS (Summerville)
Brown 6’5 left-handed small forward has great footwork around the cup. Brown is a extremely quick leaper that has the ability to rebound the ball on both ends of the floor. Brown could easily be a double-double guy this season for the Swamp Foxes.
Samuel Gray – Wade Hampton HS (Hampton)
Gray plays in the Low Country at SCHSL 3-A school. Gray a left-handed point guard is a coach’s son. Gray helped the Red Devils advance to the State Championship Game last season. Gray didn’t play any summer ball.
Wesley Brown – Marlboro County HS (Bennettsville)
Brown 6’4 is a perimeter player with really good length. Brown has the ability to put the ball on the floor and drive it ti the basket or knockdown the open jumper. Brown really likes to shoot the ball from 3 point land when given the opportunity.
John Rogers – TL Hanna HS (Anderson)
Rogers was called up late in the season for TL Hanna last year. Rogers we first saw playing with Team South Carolina back this spring. Rogers has a lot of tools and still has his best basketball in front of him. Rogers a pick and pop guy has a nice drop step move in the paint. Really looking forward to see his progress in the next few years.
