Phenom Hoops doesn’t just shed light on the top players in the state but we want to provide a platform for ALL players. The class of 2023 is still fully loaded with talent and there are plenty of players that are having a strong high school season that you may want to check out, especially if you are looking for dynamic guards. Here are a few guards having a tremendous high school season.
2023 Chase Dawson (Cary Academy):
Dawson was one that burst onto the scene last year during the summer and has continued to play at a high level to lead his team at Cary Academy. Dawson continues to show his speed and ability to penetrate, especially in transition. Last year, he averaged 25ppg as a sophomore and he isn’t far behind this year as a junior, averaging 20.0ppg.
2023 JJ Moore (Lincoln Charter):
Though it is his first season at Lincoln Charter, JJ continues to show his ability to score the ball. Though he is one of the smaller guards, he simply understands what is needed with his speed, his ability to create, his shot-making from outside, and his ability to dissect defenses. He is shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor and 42 percent from three, averaging 20ppg.
2023 Jaiden Thompson (Central Cabarrus):
Thompson is one of those players that seems to just fall through the cracks but we are telling you now, coaches need to take notice of his game. He is a tremendous two-way presence, gets after it defensively but is also shining as an offensive threat. On the season, he is averaging 19.4ppg, 5.0rpg, 3.0apg, and 3.5spg.
2023 Jordon Nevill (East Meck):
Nevill is a guard in the Charlotte area that goes under the radar but the junior just continues to produce. Even with the addition of a few new names, Nevill continues to show his ability to create for himself, showcasing his shiftiness and quickness as a guard, and his ability to move without the ball. On the season, he is averaging 18.8ppg at East Meck.
2023 Jake Chisholm (Durham Academy):
Chisholm is a tough guard with a well-round impact offensively. He finds ways to make plays for himself as well as off-ball opportunities, showing his quickness and his range on the court. Chisholm has a smooth and confident outside shot and has produced consistently for his team all season long, averaging nearly 19ppg.
