Prep Hoops takes a lot of pride in watching players in the Palmetto State. This past month Prep Hoops saw a few players that we had never seen before. Lets talk about a few of these Stock Risers right here on your source for high school basketball coverage in the Palmetto State.
Darius Dawson – West Florence HS
Dawson 6’5 combo forward will be a nice addition to the Knights roster this coming season. Dawson moved into the area this past summer after attending school at Douglas HS (Box Elder, SD). Dawson a military kid has spent some time in South Korea as a FR/SO he informed Prep Hoops.
Dawson finishes well with both hands around the basket and actually plays bigger than his size at times with his ability to leap and block shots. Dawson is best suited around the paint and runs the floor very well. Dawson should help the Knights battle for a Region Championship this coming season.
Eric Washington – Mauldin HS
Washington we have had a chance to see a few times over the years playing with a 2nd tier Grassroots Circuit team andin the Upstate and along with the Mavericks. Washington really glides all over the very well. Washington 6’6 has the ability to knockdown shots on the perimeter and handle the rock in transition. Washington has a great wingspan.
Sean Jenkins – Spartanburg HS (pictured on front)
Prep Hoops recently saw Jenkins for the first time at the SCBCA Elite Boys Camp in Columbia. Jenkins 6’3 has really good size for a guard. Jenkins showed to have good body control and got to the basket pretty easy. Jenkins had a nice mid-range game off the bounce. Jenkins is a kid to monitor this season for the Vikings. Jenkins averaged 17.8 ppg and 4.7 rebounds on a (5-15) team last season. Jenkins is in his 2nd year in Spartanburg and originally hails from Ireland. Jenkins plays on the Irish Junior National Team.
Jeremiah Reeves – River Bluff HS (Lexington)
Reeves was very effective earlier this month at the SCBCA Elite Camp. Reeves ran the floor, finished in traffic and knocked down jumpers on the perimeter. Reeves had his motor constantly running all day long. Reeves averaged 13,3 ppg and 6.7 rebounds last season.
