2023 Tim Hall (Westminster Catawba): Hall is a player that I would suggest college coaches look at, because he has been unstoppable so far this season. He plays hard, uses his size and athleticism, and brings a ton of production on both ends. Right now, he is having a monster season and doing so with consistency, averaging 20.5 points per game and an impressive 14.5 rebounds per game. But he also really fills it up in other ways, something he showed at the New Year’s Bash.
2023 Takorrie Faison (Goldsboro): Faison is starting to see his recruitment pick up, but he is one that should see more offers come his way with his HUGE production. The 6’7 prospect brings such physicality and understands how to play strong and through contact offensively, but just has a knack for outworking opponents on the boards. He is averaging an impressive 25.8ppg and 12.6rpg this season for Goldsboro.
2023 Teyachta Harris Jr. (East Rowan): The 6’7 senior is having a strong season at East Rowan, posting numbers of 24.5ppg and 12.0rpg, along with 1.4bpg. When you talk about his game, he is one that is able to create his own opportunities and does a nice job in scoring from multiple areas, along with using his long, physical frame and athleticism to his advantage. Harris can really create some matchup issues on the court.
2023 Jordan Pyke (Shining Light Academy): Pyke is a name that you may have heard before but we wanted to spotlight the 6’7 senior again. He brings a lot of excitement with his athleticism, finishing at the rim and using his size to his advantage. But he also has been strong on the boards on both ends; so far this season, Pyke has been averaging 20.8ppg and 11.1rpg at Shining Light Academy.
2023 McCaskill Rivers (East Gaston): Rivers is one that I believe should receive more attention. He has been doing it all this season for his team, averaging 21.6ppg and 10.4rpg. When you watch Rivers in action, the 6’7 prospect does a great job in carving out space in the paint and on the boards but also is expanding more of his game to hit mid-range shots and be a threat from three. But you can’t deny his physicality down in the paint.
2023 Davonte Brooks (Eastern Randolph): Brooks is a player that has been a huge part of Eastern Randolph’s success, who sits at 14-1 on the season. The 6’4 has not only been a force scoring-wise, averaging 24.7ppg, but he has been off the charts on the boards, averaging 13.1rpg. The stat that has to pop off according to MaxPreps is his impact on the offensive boards, averaging 7.5 offensive rebounds per game.
2023 Eli Hawk (First Flight): Hawk is another one of those players that may go under the radar but every time we have seen him, he has made his impact felt. He is a 6’6 physical forward that battles and plays with a tremendous motor. Hawk may not be flashy but he battles, finishes through contact, and brings a football mentality to the court with his presence on the boards.
