With the 2018 AAU season in the rear view mirror, we are going to dive into programs across the state looking at their teams in a variety of categories in our Program Awards! Today we examine Charlotte Court!
JJ Ramey, South Laurel
Ramey was the most consistent player in the program from April through July and was rewarded with a couple of scholarship offers by the end of the season. JJ is an athletic scoring machine who should be the best player in the 13th region this season.
Top 2019 Prospect
In addtiion to being the MVP, Ramey is also the best college prospect in their 17u group. JJ picked up scholarship offers from Pikeville and Campbellsville at the NAIA level and it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the 6’3 Guard could wind up at the D2 or low D1 level on signing day.
Top 2020/2021 Prospect
Nate Mack, Frederick Douglass
Nate is long and athletic and could wind up at the low D1 level if he keeps improving at the rate he has in the last year. Mack needs to keep working on his ball handling and developing his perimeter game as he transitions to playing the wing at the next level.
DeAjuan Stepp, West Jessamine
Stepp has been fairly highly ranked since we started the class of 2021 rankings and should be hovering around the top ten for the duration of the class rankings. As he continues to become more of a true wing over the next few seasons, DeAjuan could even move up the rankings thanks to his crazy motor.
Harris Hawkins, Henry Clay
Hawkins had a good Junior season at Henry Clay and parlayed that into a strong 17u year with Charlotte Court. Harris has a lot of small school interest and should find a home at the D3 or NAIA level when signing day rolls around in the spring.
Biggest Stock Riser
Jaylen Barber, Scott County
Jaylen made tremendous strides over the course of the summer. From April to July, Barber finally started to turn the corner a little. He’s legitimately 6’8 and capable of blocking and altering shots and has become an improved two handed rebounder. If Jaylen can show improved offense as a Junior he’ll keep moving up our rankings and eventually be a college player.
