The NC Top 80 was off the charts, bringing the top players from around the state all under one building. We have already talked about some of the prospects that impressed from the classes of 2025, 2024, and 2023… Now, we take a look at some of the seniors that were part of the camp. In this article, we highlight players that are already committed but still came out to compete and really performed well.
2022 De’Ante Green (Asheville Christian) – Florida State
Green, who is committed to Florida State, is regarded as one of, if not the top prospect in the class of 2022 in North Carolina and it was easy to see why. Though his day was cut short, he came out incredibly strong on his way to a 22-point performance in Game 1.
Green did it all kinds of ways as well, running the floor, finishing strong at the rim, powering through defenders in the post, and stepping out. Every time we have watched this young man, he brings everything he has to the court and competes at a high level, and with his unique skill set, he is a matchup nightmare.
We can’t wait to see what he will be able to do in the ACC for the Seminoles down the road.
2022 Noah Ross (Trinity Academy of Raleigh) – UNCW
Ross was special at the camp. He was able to get his feet under him and then took off from there, with a 20-point performance in Game 2 and ended the day with an explosive 35-point performance in Game 3. The 6’7 UNCW commit did it all and really showcased his all-around game at the NC Top 80.
Ross was extremely aggressive on the floor, finding and creating his own shots, knocking down shots from the three, and putting it on the deck, and using his size to his advantage.
In a camp loaded with talent, Ross was one of the top-performing prospects at the camp and had scouts talking for sure which is why he took home some hardware from the event.
2022 Xavier McKelvy (United Faith) – Winthrop
To find McKelvy’s name on this list, doesn’t really surprise me. This is a young man that has always performed when on the court, still looking to prove that he deserves to be up there with some of the best in the state.
The Winthrop commit averaged nearly 18 points per game throughout the NC Top 80, giving all his fans a glimpse of his athleticism, his transition game, and ability to finish strong in an array of ways. What I truly enjoy when watching McKelvy on the court is the passion and competitive nature he has, looking to prove to everyone.
2022 Kheni Briggs (The Burlington School) – Charleston Southern
2022 Sam Perez (Trinity Academy of Raleigh) – High Point
2022 MJ Collins (Westminster Catawba) – Virginia Tech
