If you didn’t get a chance to head out to the Huntersville/ Charlotte area to check out North Meck this past season, you certainly missed out on a show. An array of talent all over the court, the Vikings were certainly fun to watch.
Losing some key pieces from last year, head coach Duane Lewis and company may not see too much of a drop-off, especially with some of the new names that you will want to learn quickly about.
One of those names that is a candidate to be a “breakout” type player is 2022 6’2 Jordan Crawford. Averaging 7.0 points per game last year, Crawford is an electrifying player that can get it done at the rim or showcase his range.
“I’m a very explosive scoring guard that can handle the ball well and I’m able to score for my team in clutch situations, while also guarding multiple positions,” Crawford said. “This past season, I was able to show that I could provide scoring off the bench and defend my position for one of the top high school teams in the country.”
Playing behind the likes of Tristan Maxwell, Shamann Artis, and Trayden Williams, the rising junior was able to soak up everything he could while also being a pivotal part of a championship-caliber program. This past season alone, Crawford said that he was able to learn how to be more patient when he plays, be more mature on the court, and how to become a leader.
He feels that all those lessons he learned has now prepared him for this summer and for a much bigger role next season at North Meck.
Crawford has all the tools to really make noise in the state of North Carolina and some programs aren’t wasting any time to show their interest in his game. Schools like Charlotte and Hofstra have already reached out, showing their interest and saying they certainly will be watching in the near future.
But this won’t be the last time you hear Crawford’s name. North Meck looks to reload once again and Crawford has a chance to be the next big name coming from the program.
