Southern Durham HS had a successful season last year at 21-7, they lose one of the top scorers in the state due to graduation but they bring back a very high amount of talent. We take a look at a few players from Southern that we like to have a nice impact the season, and players that colleges should be keeping an eye on.
2020 Guard Alex Webb: A guard that has a nice IQ for the game and is what we would define as a deceptive player. He may not be the tallest or faster guard but he’s smart and crafty with how he plays. One of our favorite attributes about him is the ability he has to score over bigs and in traffic at a solid rate.
2019 Guard Jalen Person: Plays the game with a toughness that you have to like from a guard, he doesn’t back down from challenges and doesn’t allow the defense to speed him up. He has the ability to score the ball at a nice level as well as getting teammates involved.
2019 Guard Jayvis Harvey: A good amount of upside and size for a player that can play the guard spot, he shows some flashes of how special he can. Whenever you watch him play, he gets better as the game goes on, which is something you love to see from a youngster. Nice IQ and plenty of upside, committed verbally to Radford this summer.
2019 Guard Aqiis Horton: Although he is a smaller guard, he makes up for it with the amount of intensity and toughness he plays the game with. He does a bit of everything on the court: score the ball, facilitate, defend full court, and dive for loose balls all day long. Simply put if you want a player that is going to give you everything he has on the court, then you will want him on your team.
2020 Guard Sean Sims: Talented player that can be productive on the ball at the PG spot or playing on the wing. He’s quick, athletic, and can score the ball at a nice rate, stats wise he didn’t have his best year last season but with more opportunity this year, we expect him to have a breakout season.
2020 Guard Daqonye Parrish: This is a player who we feel could be a ” late bloomer”, his game has quite a few attributes that we like and we feel that he can be successful over these next two years. He can knock down the trey ball, but also uses his speed and craftiness to get inside the paint and finish. Ballhandling and passing are other areas that he is very impressive as well, once he puts it all together and is locked in, he can be a special.
