6’6 2020 Jalen Hood-Schifino (Combine Academy)
Jalen Hood-Schifino is building a case for the top spot in the North Carolina 2022 class. We’re talking about a physical strong, mature and two-way point guard. Hood-Schifino has been on a tear the second part of the season and his back to back performance at the Phenom Hoop State Championship is elevating his stock and status. Hood-Schifino finished with 19 points, but it was his leadership and outstanding defense that was most impressive.

Liberty Heights led for the majority of the game and it looked like they would pull off the impossible. Beating Combine Academy on their home court. Kahari Rogers was terrific and dialed in from deep. Rogers finished with 20 points including five 3-pointers.

Wildy was outstanding and finished with a game high 21 point including four 3-pointers.
6’3 2020 Jamahri Harvey (Moravian Prep)
Big time players hit big time shots and Jamahri Harvey did just that. Trailing by 10 in the second half, Harvey stepped up big! He finished with 20 points, but the 12 points came in the crucial fourth quarter. Word of God was primed for the upset win, but the play of Harvey pushed Moravian into the championship game against Combine Academy.
6’1 2022 Khalil Marshall (Word of God)
Khalil Marshall finished with 17 points, but his speed, quickness and athleticism allows him to get into the paint often. Word of God had every opportunity to pull off the upset and Marshall was a huge reason why. Look for Marshall’s recruitment to pick up. He’s has all the physical attributes you want in a lead guard.
