Prep Hoops dives into the 2023: Stock Risers from this fall semester. Covid-19 has put a hamper on the basketball season here in the Palmetto State just like everywhere else in the United States. Lets take a look at some players Stock Risers from early in the season here in the 2023 Palmetto State Class. 

Merel Burgess Merel Burgess 6'4" | PF Wilson | 2023 State SC - South Florence HS 

Burgess made some moves this fall with his play. Burgess a left-handed forward has the ability to play inside-out on the floor. Burgess has a nice set of hands and good footwork down in the paint. Burgess feels very comfortable on where he can step-out and knockdown the 17-19 foot jumper. Burgess is the go-to guy for Bruins Head Coach Christian Savage. 

Derrick Barksdale Derrick Barksdale 5'10" | SG York Prep | 2023 State SC - York Prep (Rock Hill) (pictured on front) 

Barksdale plays a bit in the shadows of brothers Kory Davis Kory Davis 5'11" | PG York Prep | 2022 State SC and Kendall Davis Kendall Davis 6'0" | PG York Prep | 2022 State SC here for the Patriots. I really think that role doesn’t mind Barksdale a sharp-shooting left-handed guard. Barksdale has really came on strong for the Patriots
