It has been a tremendous year for 2025 Chadlyn Traylor and North Meck; being a national program, winning a state title, and Traylor’s recruitment continues to hit another level.

Traylor has been a very intriguing guard here in North Carolina, as he showed promise early on and has only continued to display to lead an offense, and be a consistent scoring presence, with his best years to come. We had this to say about his game recently at our NC Top 80 Camp:

“He’s an extremely poised, intelligent point guard prospect with an unselfish approach and phenomenal all-around balance. Traylor is a natural leader by example who plays at his own pace, sets up others at a high volume, and scores with efficiency from multiple levels. He handles the ball with care and precision, never getting rushed or forced into errant miscues, and makes great reads as a playmaker. Traylor also contains his position well defensively.” – Top 80 Evaluation

Phenom was able to catch up with the 2025 guard here in North Carolina, to talk about his development and excitement this past season at North Meck, and his uptick in his recruitment.

Looking back at the season:

Phenom: Overall it was a great year for you. But in your words, just how special was this season for you and how did it help develop your game?

Traylor: I would say this season was a great opportunity for me to show the endless work I have put in and just help me display how my main objective is to win by any means possible.

Phenom: What do you think you were able to show more with your game this year?

Traylor: I think I was able to show my athleticism a lot more this year and I believe I opened a lot of eyes on how I was able to play above the rim and use my athleticism on both sides of the ball.

Phenom: What will be your focus now this summer with your game?

Traylor: To continue to show how effective I can be manipulating and controlling the game, and doing whatever I can to win games.


How things have changed for the 6’3 guard from North Carolina, as he has been racking in some impressive offers after coming off a championship run. Traylor already held multiple offers, but his uptick in the last few weeks can’t go unnoticed. He has added offers from East Carolina, UNCW, and Boston in the last few weeks, now joining Stetson, Queens, Western Carolina, NC A&T, and Loyola-Maryland.

“They are really sold on how I’m a proven winner and again how I can manipulate the game and control the game,” Traylor said in what schools have been impressed with his game. “I hang my hat on defense and know how to read defenses and how to attack them. Also, how easily my teammates can play off of me.”

With his recruitment taking another step as of late, it certainly would be interesting to see which other schools have been expressing interest. Traylor informed Phenom Hoops that schools like NC State, Cincinnati, Charlotte, and Coastal Carolina have also expressed interest, and he has already taken visits to Western Carolina and NC State.
