Big Shots Charleston Summer Classic II had a ton of talent on display this past weekend. Here’s a look at the 5 biggest takeaways from the event.

Talent still available in NC & SC Class of 2021

The class of 2021 in the states of North Carolina and South Carolina still has a ton of talent left to choose from and a lot of it was on display at Big Shots Charleston Summer Classic II. Daylan AskewDaylanAskew6'4" | SGHertford County | 2021StateNC, a 6-foot-4 guard for the NC Blazers, took home MVP honors with a strong performance scoring the basketball. He put up 23.3 ppg while knocking down eight 3-pointers en route to a Gold championship victory over Manzer 2021.

Manzer 2021 was led by a strong backcourt duo of Mike HerrinMikeHerrin6'4" | CGSocastee | 2021StateSC and Javi MarloweJaviMarlowe6'1" | PGNorth Myrtle Beach | 2021StateSC. Herrin is a 6-foot-5 slashing wing prospect that gets to the rim with relative ease. He led the division in ppg with 24.0 per contest by event’s end. Marlowe is a two-way prospect that finds his offense from digging in on the defensive end. He’s an underrated athletic guard that can attack the paint and finish above the rim if need be.

Treyvon ByrdTreyvonByrd6'5" | SFBull City Prep | 2022NC’s stock is rising 2022 wing/forward Treyvon ByrdTreyvonByrd6'5" | SFBull City Prep | 2022NC was a name that stood out all weekend long with his ability on the hardwood. He’s become a presence on both ends of the floor and more than just a scorer on the floor. He still put up 14.0 ppg but he flew around on defense as well for steals and blocks and showed off a motor when his team needed him in key moments. The future is bright for HoopState Select The Raleigh/Durham area has a heck of a team in HoopState Select at the 15U level. They’re a group led by Amari OdomAmariOdom6'2" | PGJordan High | 2023NC, Jaybron HarveyJaybronHarvey6'4" | PFSouthern Durham | 2023NC, Keshawn BrownKeshawnBrown5'11" | CGCary Academy | 2023NC, Messiah Pitt and others. They shined on the 15U stage at Big Shots with Odom and Harvey taking home co-MVP honors by the end of the event. They’re a deep and talented squad to keep an eye on, especially with the recent addition of sharpshooter Shaun KenedyShaunKenedy5'10" | PGAthens Drive | 2023NC. Lowcountry Storm 2023 and Strong Center Elite have impressive bunches HoopState Select wasn’t the only 2023 squad that was impressive. Lowcountry Storm 2023 had some up-and-coming prospects in Calvin DavinroyCalvinDavinroy6'2" | SGWando | 2023StateSC, Will Regan, Charlie RanneyCharlieRanney6'2" | CGBishop England | 2023StateSC, Ben Britton and Quinton Dugdale. They’re an impressive squad you’ll want to see that play together on both ends with a winning mentality. Strong Center Elite was another squad that impressed, making it all the way to the title game before falling to HoopState Select. They’re led by a backcourt of Micah JonesMicahJones5'11" | PGCardinal Gibbons | 2023NC and Xavier DeBerryXavierDeBerry6'0" | CGCardinal Gibbons | 2023NC with Sam MartinSamMartin6'8" | PFApex | 2023NC anchoring the paint and Steven LassiterStevenLassiter6'6" | SFTrinity Christian | 2023NC and Collin Kuhl on the wings. They’re another group to track early in North Carolina’s 2023 class. Younger groups are shining already on the hardwood In the Class of 2024 (14U Division), Lowcountry Elite showed their stuff with a dynamic backcourt duo of Montreal JenkinsMontrealJenkins5'8" | PGCathedral Academy | 2024SC and Rashad Simmons Jr.. They overcame 22 points from Quadir ScottQuadirScott6'1"Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach | 2024SC of Team Heat to take home the 14U title. Simmons showed off his ability to distribute and his range from deep knocking down two 3-pointers en route to a 15-point effort. Jenkins finished with six points and a number of big plays on the defensive end. In the Class of 2025, one name to know is Michael Jordan of 24/7 Jr. Ballers.
