Prep Hoops saw plenty of talent over the weekend at the SCBCA Boys Elite Camp held at Ben Lippen in Columbia. Lets take a look at some members of the 2021 class in the event.
RJ Felton – North Augusta HS (pictured on front)
Felton was slashing to the rack all day and finishing at the rim. Felton 6’3 is a great athlete who also excels on the football field for the Yellow Jackets. Felton rebounds the ball very well on both ends of the floor and is a bit of a streaky shooter. Felton has the ability to overpower players with his strength and size in the back court. Clemson came in the other day to see Felton.
James Lovorn – TL Hanna HS (Anderson)
Lovorn has a great feel for the game and mindset. Lovorn 5’11 never seems to be rattled and his always making the right plays while staying under control on the floor.
Cesare Edwards – Hartsville HS
Edwards prefers to play face-up on the floor and did knockdown a few short corner jumpers. Edwards 6’8 runs the floor very well and at times plays a bit timid. Edwards should team up with future Gamecock Trae Hannibal this season and help the Red Foxes to a strong season.
Nic Williams – Greenville Tech
Williams was connecting on some mid-range jumpers today for his team. Williams plays with some swagger and confidence on the floor. Williams created his own shots several times today. Williams 6’4 runs with Game Elite on the Grassroots Circuit.
Jaquarious “JQ” Jones – Greenville HS
Jones is a mismatch guy on the floor with his versatility. Jones averaged averaged 9 ppg and 7 rebounds last season for the Red Raiders. Jones can handle the rock or post you up in the paint.
Malachy McGuirt – Rock Hill HS
McGuirt played inside-out on the floor today here at the event. McGuirt 6’4 will team up with Luke Bracey (2022) the next few years at Rock Hill HS. McGuirt stepped out and hit a few three pointers while also making plays for others on the floor.
Tyreik Priestley – Newberry HS
Priestley is a extremely long and athletic forward. Priestley 6’8 challenged and altered shots on the defensive end of the floor. Priestley runs the floor very well and feels comfortable shooting the 8-10 footer on the perimeter.
Amere Cherry – Richland Northeast HS
Cherry has grown a few inches since last year when we saw him playing at John Paul II in Ridgeland. Cherry 6’2 now has great length and really defends the passing lanes well. Cherry a military kid spent 6 years of his life living in Japan.
Yaturi Bolton – Goose Creek HS
Bolton 6’5 has came over to the Gators from nearby Cathedral Academy. Bolton finished around the basket today on put backs and played solid defense in the post. Bolton should be a good building block for Head Coach Blake Hall and the future of the Goose Creek program.
Chase McDuffie – Gray Collegiate
McDuffie was great on defense today and also extended the defense with his shooting ability. McDuffie has grown since last season. McDuffie 6’3 should look to contribute to a talented War Eagles team this season for Head coach Dion Bethea.
Jett Hammes – Pendleton HS
Hammes is tougher than a $2 dollar steak. Hammes plays the game with a great passion and really competes on every play. Hammes a left-handed guard isn’t afraid to sacrifice his body on the floor for a lose ball or even a charge.
Slater Miller – West Oak HS
Miller 6’3 plays for Head Coach Ed Geth up in Westminster located in Oconee County. Miller is a slender-sleek athlete connected on shots out on the perimeter. Miller was a step slow on the defensive end and played a bit timid at times. Miller will be a solid player for the years to come under the guidance of the former North Carolina Tar Heel Geth.
