The 2024 rankings have been released in the state of North Carolina, with a ton of talent added to the fold. Take a look at Part II of the Stock Risers in the 2024 rankings.

Zion Collins Zion Collins 6'3" | CG Winston-Salem Christian | 2024 State NC | 6’3 Guard/Wing
From No. 26 to No. 15

Collins is a name that’s climbing up the ranks in the 2024 class. He’s an emerging wing prospect with good upside as a two-way threat given his athleticism and ability to create off the bounce. He’s done well on the grassroots scene to show off his ability to impact the game. His recent move to Winston-Salem Christian should do a ton of good for his development over the next few years.

Jaylen Sturdivant Jaylen Sturdivant 6'3" | CG Hoke County HS | 2024 State NC | 6’3 Guard
From No. 98 to No. 54

Sturdivant is a combo guard prospect that’s shown his growth this spring already on the grassroots stage with Sandhills Machine. He has no issue scoring the ball on all three levels given his size and frame already. As he learns to impact the game on defense and make his presence felt with his energy, look for his name to continue to grow in the class.

Miles Beard Miles Beard 6'2" | CG Hickory Ridge | 2024 State NC | 6’2 Guard From No. 78 to No. 56 Beard is yet another CC Elite product making a name for himself in the 2024 rankings. He’s a strong two-way threat given his ability to get downhill and finish in traffic with zero issue. He’s shown flashes of his ability to knock down shots on the perimeter as well and as he does more of that, look for his name to grow on the recruiting trail.  Levi Romero Levi Romero 6'0" | PG New Bern Christian Academy | 2024 State NC | 6’0 Point Guard From No. 93 to No. 83 Romero is a gritty point guard that sets the tone with his ability to pressure the basketball and get downhill and make plays in the paint. He's quite the underrated shooter as well though, unselfish in his ability to push the pace and get his team going. He's due to make a splash in the New Bern Christian backcourt in 2021-22 after playing a year of varsity as a freshman. Michael Juergens Michael Juergens 6'5" | CG Northern Guilford | 2024 State NC | 6’5 Wing/Forward From WL to No. 97 Juergens is an emerging name to know in the 2024 class given his length and ability at 6-foot-5. He's made waves with NC RimRunners given his ability to get to the paint and finish at the rim and knock down shots in the midrange and perimeter space. He's a sleeper prospect to keep an eye on this summer.
