Prep Hoops takes a look at some players from the 2021 class and where they will be headed this season. 


Jacobi Wright – York Prep to Fort Mill HS  (pictured on front)

Wright is point guard is ranked #2 in the 2021 class. Wright can penetrate the gaps and get to the rack at will. Wright has great court vision and can really create plays for others on the floor. Wright ran the Grassroots Circuit with Team CP3. 


Yaturi Bolton

Yaturi Bolton – Cathedral Academy (North Charleston) to Goose Creek HS 

Bolton 6’5 came on the season last year at the small SCISA 1-A school for the Generals. Bolton should factor into Gators Head Coach Blake Hall plans this season at the 5-A school. Bolton averaged 6.1 ppg and 6.3 rebounds last season for the Generals. 


Umar Lawson #2

Umar Lawson – Lakewood HS (Sumter) to Laurence Manning Academy 

Lawson could be the back bone piece to the Swamp Cats team this coming season. Lawson 6’1 left-handed shooting guard will be a major player for Head Coach Will Epps and the future of the program. 


Jasean Morris

Jasean Morris – Dreher HS to Keenan HS 

Morris sat out last season at Dreher HS for the Blue Devils. Prep Hoops saw Morris 6’5 plays with the Blue Devils this summer in the Newberry Team Camp. 

Justus Boone

Justus Boone – Sumter HS to Laurence Manning Academy 

Boone right now is playing football for Robbie Briggs and the Swamp Cats. Boone 6’5 should look to contribute this season right away on the glass. 


Chris Rhone – Northside Christian (Lexington) to Gray Collegiate 

Rhone 6’3 was the top player last season at Northside Christian. Rhone has good size on the perimeter and defends the passing lanes well. . 


Amere Cherry

Amere Cherry – John Paul II (Ridgeland) to Richland Northeast HS 

Cherry 5’11 averaged 18 ppg last season for the Golden Warriors. 


Marcus Lane – Sumter HS to Laurence Manning Academy 

Lane is a dual sport athlete for the Swamp Cats. Lane 5’8 should join Lawson and Boone on the floor this season for the some quality minutes.
