There's nothing wrong with having a chip on your shoulder. Athletes are motivated by different variables and factors. It could be returning from injury, defending a title, or simply proving people wrong. That chip provides athletes with a fire in their belly to get it done. Here are five 2020 prospects with a chip on their shoulder:

Kam Woods (Pinson Valley)- No doubt this kid plays with a chip on his shoulder. People judge his size, the way he plays, and his production. Many have been critical of this kid, myself included, but it is all out of love. Kam can play. Offensively, there are not many better with the ball in their hands. He is not afraid of the big moment or taking any shot. If he wants to play at a high level than what is recruiting him, Kam needs to be more efficient. It is that simple. 

Dallas Howell (Enterprise)- This 6'7 forward was being recruited at the MM level and unfortunately was injured in the spring. Dallas needs to show teams he still can play at that level. He's got good positional size and is a very good shooter. Playing without any setbacks is important for this prospect.
