Jaquantae Harris – 5’11” PG | Hoke County High School
Harris was arguably the most productive freshman point guard at the 4A level in North Carolina when you factor in all around play and the fact that his team won 26 games. He’s an uber athletic lefty that creates well for others, is active defensively, scores it naturally and is still relatively young for a sophomore. Division 1 schools will be tracking him early and often.
Redford Dunton – 6’5” G | Heritage High School
Dunton is no secret anymore in North Carolina. He was a important piece for Heritage on their way to the state title championship match where they came up short. He has a reputation as a knock down shooter and has progressed into more of a creator off the bounce. Due to graduation of several collegiate level prospects at high school and a great summer, we should expect a breakout year as a sophomore. Should develop into a highly coveted prospect at the division 1 level much sooner than later.
Ke’Nazius Black – 5’10” PG | Tarboro High School
One of the more unknown prospects on this list. Black had a solid freshman campaign while competing in arguably the toughest 1A conference in the eastern portion of North Carolina. In a league that sported a point guard that averaged 30, another that was All-State and another that is currently on football scholarship to Hampton University, Black more than held his own as a defender, shot maker and creator.
Jamylan Blakeney – 6’7” F | Forest Hills High School
Potential is abound with Blakeney. He is a very active forward that shows flashes of a future true wing player. Blooming with athleticism and shows a really nice touch around the basket. Already proven himself as a winner both at the AAU level with Team CP3 and winning a state title as a freshman with his Forest Hills varsity team. In the title game, Blakeney more than held his own against a future collegiate front-court. A ton to like about this kid.
Bennie Brooks – 6’5” G | East Carteret High School
Arguably one of the more fundamentally sound players in the sophomore class. Brooks has excellent court vision, strong footwork inside and makes a ton of great decisions both on and off of the ball. He does a great job getting his feet set on catch and shoot opportunities, doesn’t waste driving opportunities on fast-breaks and has a nice floater. He’s also sprouted up in height quite a bit since early in his freshman year.
