A name that some may have not heard yet, 2022 6’8 Mayar Wol has been putting on a show this summer and starting to make a case for himself in North Carolina.
Last season as a sophomore, Wol averaged 4.6 points and 2.0 rebounds per game at Fuquay-Varina but this summer, playing with Hoop Wall Street, Wol was a consistent standout at multiple events. He showed that he can be that big-time scoring threat as a 6’8 wing but also fill up the stat sheet.
On the 17u level, he averaged 22 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 blocks per game for Hoop Wall Street; he was incredibly efficient on the floor.
“I feel like my summer went well,” Wol told Phenom Hoops. “I showed that I can score on all three levels, handle the ball, defend all positions, and make good decisions. I like to attack off the dribble.”
When speaking to Hoop Wall Street Director, Brandon Poteat, about Wol’s game, this is what he had to say about it:
“What I would say about Mayar is that he’s a diamond in the rough. He plays well in transition and in the half-court, he can score from all three levels, and he’s a ballhawk on the boards. Post presence on defense and a great help-side defender. He is a great teammate and even better kid who has a super high ceiling. He’s going to be very special.”
Wol now hopes to show that same game this season at Fuquay-Varina, having a big year and be one of the leaders for his team. If he is able to produce anywhere close to what he showed this summer though, Wol will certainly be a name that could be a contender as a “breakout” prospect in NC.
