Coach K’s (Kelvin Mills) Eye Catchers
6’3 2020 Wy’Kise Allen (South Granville HS, Oxford, NC)
Allen is a versatile scoring forward with a big body type. He’s a true mismatch problem who is a threat to create his own shot and put points on the board from various spots on the floor. He’s probably most effective in the mid-range area, where he knocked downed 10-15 foot jump shots with consistency. He also can take smaller less physical forwards and guards in the post area and have his way with them. He caught our attention early on during stations when he was very vocal and displayed leadership, not to mention a take-charge mentality. In addition, he did not disappoint once we started playing games.
6’6 2020 Jacob Marshall (Reidsville HS, Reidsville, NC)
Jacob is a long athletic wing player with nice skills on the perimeter and has the ability to score at the rim or from the perimeter.
He sees the floor well for his position and has shown that he can take over a game scoring the ball. He is an outstanding on ball defender with quick feet and fast hands. Marshall is definitely flying under the recruiting radar and could be a nice prize for the appropriate collegiate level.
6’1 2020 Mason Grigg (Northwestern HS, Rock Hill, SC)
Mason Grigg was arguably one of the most athletic kids at camp. At 6’ 1, he possesses crazy leaping ability probably around 36-inch vertical leap and with that, he also brings a rough tough exterior. He’s a bully guard throwback like M. L. Carr, of the Boston Celtics. What he also does Is defend on ball and off ball very, very well. He is a player with nice skills on the perimeter and has the ability to score; get to the rim and throw it down with authority. In addition, Grigg also showed the ability to hit the jumper from the perimeter.
6’2 2020 Jay Hickman (Northwood Temple, Fayetteville, NC)
Jay Hickman is a versatile guard that can play either the 1, 2 or the 3. He is a natural wing that has a distinct ability to score the basketball. His toughness and athletic ability allow him to play some SF also when needed. He has a skill set that college coaches look for. As he continues to improve under the tutelage of Coach James Strong, we see him as a strong candidate to play at the next level.
5’11 2023 David Taylor (Panther Creek, Cary, NC)
David Taylor is a versatile guard that can play either the 2 or the 3. He is a strong guard that is still growing into this game. Taylor’s toughness and athletic ability allow him to defend bigger guards. In addition, Taylor is a high IQ and understands the game extremely well. As his skills continue to improve he will be a force to reckon with in the future.
6’0 2022 Nikolas Graves (Durham Academy, Durham, NC)
This young man is a quiet player, but you need him on the floor and on your team. In his second game, Graves had eight points and eight assists. He simply made plays, caused turnovers and he is a willing passer. A smart young man with three more years at Durham Academy to develop, look for his stock to grown. Graves is a smooth and consistent ball-handler with a high assist to turnover ratio.
