Tyjhai Calvin (2020) – East Clarendon HS (Turbeville) (pictured on front)

Jalen Bryant (2020) – East Clarendon HS (Turbeville)

Isaiah Brown (2020) – Johnsonville HS

Sammy Pressley (2020) – Mullins HS
Pressley is currently playing on the gridiron for the Auctioneers. Pressley 6’4 has 13 receptions – 267 yards this season heading into the 2nd Round of the SCHSL Playoffs. Pressley is a inside-out on the hardwood as a tweener 4/3 or 3/4 type.

Quez Lewis (2021) – Johnsonville HS
Lewis 5’6 saw plenty of minutes as a freshman for the Flashes last season. Lewis will need to be more selective on his passing skills this season. Lewis has a nice pull-up jumper. Lewis averaged 5.4 ppg last season as a freshman for Head Coach Harris Avant.
Rashon Casey (2022) – Kingstree HS
Casey 6’4 is a player to keep a eye on down the road for the Jaguars. Casey should look to add some minutes this season as a freshman.
