Kaleb plays off the grid a bit at North Central HS over in Kershaw County after starting his career at Manning HS as a freshman. Caldwell is currently playing football for the Knights.
Prep Hoops first saw Sowell as a freshman play for the Eagles. Wow time sure flies that’s for sure. Sowell played on the Grassroots Circuit with HYB Raptors and a good season with them. Jaydyn is a true leader on and off the floor for the Eagles. He averaged 12.5 ppg last season.
Barksdale is currently off the board as he as committed to James Madison University to play football. Derrick and York Prep had a magical season last year. What will they look like this year? New roster and new Head Coach. Look for Derrick to take over the reins and be the guy for them.
Wilson is just one of the 2 Volunteers listed here today. Ghaleb averaged 11.1 ppg and 5 rebounds last season and a whole lot of TOUGHNESS for Head Coach Danny Wright. He plays every possession to the fullest at all times. Wilson is constantly around the ball if it means grabbing a rebound, taking a charge or diving on the floor.
Edmond will have to set up production likethis season with the departure of to Lake City HS. Caden is a very deceptive who can score the ball from all 3 levels. He really looks to excel at times in the mid-range game and getting to the cup in transition. Caden averaged 15 ppg last season for the Eagles (12-9).
Smith really showed Prep Hoops some solid work this Grassroots season. Look for him to be a new name in the Region and the Pee Dee area for the Braves. Elijah feels very comfortable playing on the perimeter and has a decent skill set already for his age. Could he grow some more down the road? Elijah could be a big factor for the Braves squad this coming season.
Chambers should the Rams going in the right direction this season after the football season is over. Kaegan a Quarterback for the Rams in the fall will try to pick up on his 13 ppg and 5.7 rebounds from a season ago for the Rams.
Johnson really caught the eye of Prep Hoops this summer at the SCBCA Team Camp in Rock Hill. He’s a very high energy young man who can run the floor very well and clean up on the glass. Jy’Kevius will jump on the floor and really compete for every loose ball.
Colyer just finished playing football for the Rams. Scoot will see good minutes on the hardwood this season as a freshman. He’s built like a tank and plays with a fearless attitude along with being quite confident.
