Village Christian Academy: The knights have put together some outstanding season over the past 5 years and will look to do the same this season. They have a nice mixture of talent and although they will be moving up to 3A they have some players with heart and toughness:

Prospects to Watch: 2020 Guard Zavian Mclean & 2019 Guard Travion McCray are both D1 level talents and can score the ball in bunches. Game planning for one of these guys is tough but now that you have to figure out how to defend both, things could get very interesting.

Northwood Temple: Northwood is a team that has a mixture of returning talent as well as some new faces. Playing fast will most likely be how they are dominate as they have plenty of guards that can successfully push the pace.

Prospects to Watch: 2019 Guard Josh Nickelberry & 2020 Guard Jamahri Harvey are both players that can fill it up scoring wise. Harvey is still under the radar for quite a few programs while Nickelberry who is nationally ranked has already committed to the University of Louisville.

New Life Christian: NLCA is a program that has made major strides over the years and have a team full of prospects. Players that can play on the: D1, D2 and D3 levels are on this roster so college coaches should be keeping a close eye on this bunch.

Prospect to Watch: 2020 Wing Reggie Raynor currently holds multiple D1 offers and is still seeing his recruitment rise. He has improved in a major in the past year and will only get better if he remains locked in on his craft.

Walkertown HS: Last season they had a solid year overall finishing with a record of 18-9 on the year. They will look to pick up where they left off success wise and start the season off strong in 2018.

Prospect to Watch: 2020 Guard Jalen Cone is a player that can score the ball at an extremely high level, he doesn’t allow his height to deter him from attacking the paint and getting opponents into foul trouble. Last season he averaged over 34 PPG and picked up numerous scholarship offers from D1 programs.
