The Class of 2020 has gotten off to a very good start this season, and there are quite a few prospects that have very few or no offers that college programs should be on ASAP! Let’s take a quick glance at a few of these players and why they should be getting calls from college coaches.
Westover HS Forward Traymond Willis-Shaw: We have said it before, and will say it once again, this youngster is a player that has a chance to be really good. He has the height at 6’7, with a long wingspan and nice versatility that allows him to make plays from the Wing and Post positions. His first game against Northern Durham featured a 29 point, 7 rebound, 7 Assist and 6 steal performance.
Pender HS Guard Jajuan Carr: Here we have another youngster whose lack of offers is simply a head scratcher. He’s picked up interest from schools such as: Iowa State, Rice, UNCW and College of Charleston and currently holds an offer from ECU. However we are shocked that he doesn’t have more offers and intense interest, he is a guard that can go for 30 on any given occasion and is extremely athletic. Since his arrival at Pender he hasn’t missed a beat and is filling up the scoring column of the stat book on a nightly basis.
New Life Christian Guard Phil Martin: He had a slower start to the season but their matchup with Raleigh Homeschool is where it seems like he got his confidence back and began to play his game again. He went for 20+ in that matchup and in two of their last 3 games put up nice numbers as well in the 20 point range. He can shoot the ball at a very high level and once he gets going, it can be a long night for the defense, D2 programs should be on him.
Fayetteville Christian Forward Jaden Scriven: After seeing his performance on Tuesday against Harrells Christian, we can agree that it’s time for schools to go ahead and add Jaden to their watch list. He was the best athlete and prospect on the floor, scoring on the offensive end but and defending at a very high level. At about 6’4 he is a wing at the D2 level which we are sure he could transition very well to, as long as he stays in the lab, then he will be a player to have colleges calling.
Terry Sanford Forward Yates Johnson: 15 Points, 10 Rebounds, and 4 assist on a night where he shot almost 60% from the field are the numbers for this young man in their matchup with Cape Fear. At 6’5 with a high skillset and nice IQ for the game, he is a player that will make the right play at the right time and fits easily into whatever the team game plan is. This season will be a season that his name will be called on more to produce and we know that he is more than ready to step in and fill that role.
