The list of 2023 prospects in the state of North Carolina is quite impressive. Players from around the state made a statement and a name for themselves as a freshman and you can continue to add another name to the list. Some may know his name already but 2023 6’5 Ta’Korrie Faison should and will be a name everyone will know down the road.
Jamie Shaw recently spoke about Faison, saying:
“Faison is an athlete who plays with a killer instinct. While he mans the post for his high school team, he showcases some ball skills and shooting ability. He is an active rebounder and tries to dunk everything. Already the size, length and athleticism, he produced at a high level this year with excitement looking forward.”
Helping lead his team to a 21-5 record at Goldsboro, Faison averaged 14.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game this past season, a season that he was ready to make his mark.
“This season went great,” he told Phenom Hoops. “I was excited about getting my name out there and letting everyone know who I am. I was hoping to show people that I understand the game and I could do more than play the post, showing people that I can make I can make plays for my teammates.”
Faison would describe his game as an all-around type of player but would specifically say that his strengths on the floor would be his offensive capabilities, being able to take defenders inside and out and using multiple moves to get by defenders. He also is hoping to continue to expand his game and versatility on the floor, working on his guard skills and being a leader on the court.
His recruitment hasn’t started yet but that should change quickly once he is able to get back on the court. Faison has hopes of running with Team Curry this year and he has a big chance to continue his excellent freshman season, making an even bigger mark on a national level.
