Grace Christian 2019 Guard Matthew O’Connor: One of the best performers of the day without a doubt, he has solid height for a guard at 6’0 and his combination of skill and IQ will make a college coach excited in a heartbeat. We have seen him score the ball before at a solid rate but what impressed us the most was his passing, he consistently found teammates and made some very nice reads and passes.
Rocky Mount Prep 2021 Jackson Thompson: It’s always interesting to see the son of a coach play the game, normally they have a high IQ and a natural feel for the game. This was the case for Jackson, he’s young with plenty of upside and you can already see how well he breaks down the game mentally, only will get better with time.
Pamlico County 2019 G/F George Jones: Jones has turned some heads this past summer with his play and continued to do so on Saturday. He has nice athletic ability and makes what we would call ‘‘winning plays’’, regardless of what’s going on, whatever his team needed to win a game, he provided it. This is no surprise as we got to see him last season with his high school team where he was a very important player for a team that made it to the 1A State Championship.
Independence HS 2019 Guard Lloyd Latta: Due to the fact that his high school team was such a talent loaded team, you didn’t get the chance to see a ton of what he could do. On Saturday we got the chance to see him with the ball in his hands more often and he was solid throughout, he displayed a quick first step and got into the paint at a solid rate.
Glenvar HS 2019 Guard Marshall Snider: At this point we would have to describe him as a three point specialist, he knocks down shots with efficiency and does a solid job of moving without the ball. His potential to make plays from the wing was shown a few time throughout the day, he made some good entry passes to the post as well as understanding how to get the ball to others in the right spots.
White Oak HS 2019 Wing Derreco Miller: Displayed some nice athletic ability on both ends of the floor, plays the game with a high motor and seems as though he takes pride on the defense. The main question for him to answer during his senior season is what his position will be on the next level, as of now he’s 6’2 that can play on or off the ball on the perimeter.
