2021 Jordan Wildy continues to add to his offer list after an impressive season
Moravian Prep was a loaded program this past season, having talent of all levels at each position. One junior big man has been capitalizing on a strong season and recently added another offer to his list.
2021 6’9 Jordan Wildy announced recently that UNC-Wilmington has entered the party in offering him, joining Western Carolina, Tulane, Winthrop, Elon, La Salle, and Illinois-Chicago.
“My first thoughts were that I was very excited and the head coach, Coach Siddle, called and told me the news. Coach Burke from UNCW has been recruiting me since September of last year,” Wildy said. He has been able to get a better understanding of the program since they have been on him for quite some time and he likes early on how they run their offense and really space the floor, allowing him to showcase his versatility.
Wildy says that UNCW has been one of the programs that have been on him strong, as well as Elon and Winthrop. As far as interests go though, schools like Virginia Tech, Radford, St. John’s, and Clemson have all expressed some type of interest in the past as well.
2020 Kam Mack (Myers Park) earns his first offer
It is always a special time for a player to earn his first offer, especially as an unsigned senior. Myers Park senior Kameron Mack was incredibly excited learning that he had earned his first offer from Brevard College and it may just be the first step he needed.
“I’m really thankful for the offer,” he said shortly after. “I still feel like I have more to accomplish but receiving the offer was a big step forward. They said they liked my game and they feel like I can make an impact on their team.”
It means a lot of Mack to receive that offer, knowing that all the hard work is paying off.
Brevard is his first offer but schools like Ferrum, William Peace, Warren Wilson, Catawba, Logan Community College, and Butler Community College have all expressed interest as well.
Mack has only visited Ferrum so far but he believes, wherever he goes, that he can provide toughness, a coachable attitude, and leadership.
Looking for the right fit, 2021 6’4 Daylen Berry earns UNC-Wilmington offer
It was a productive season for junior Daylen Berry at Panther Creek, averaging nearly 18 points per game. Schools are liking what they have seen from the combo guard, as he now holds offers from UNCG, Winthrop, and most recently, UNC-Wilmington. All three could be potential fits for Berry and he likes what he has been hearing from the coaching staff at each program.
He also has been hearing from schools like George Mason, Belmont, NC Central, Appalachian State, Elon, East Carolina, and Charleston Southern, all of which have been continuing to build a solid relationship with him. He has been recently been speaking to the coaches at Belmont, Elon, and Appalachian State and has hopes to be in touch with more down the road.
“Every school that has offered me so far, they all fit my playing style 100 percent… and they know that, so they have been expressing to me how perfect I would fit in and I’d be in a place where I can excel,” he said. “Also, the culture at each school is very family-like and that’s huge for me in my recruiting process. I want to go to a place where family and winning are everything and each school has that so far.”
Right now though, he is looking just trying to figure out what the schools have to offer and the best place for him.
“I really just want to figure out where I’m wanted the most,” he told Phenom Hoops. “I want to go somewhere I know it will be the best option for my self and my family to do well.”
Get ready to learn the name Noah Ross from Trinity Academy
A player in the Raleigh area has entered the radar and is making a name for himself. 2022 6’6 Noah Ross from Trinity Academy impressed this year, averaging 16.6 points per game. He is now another player in the state of North Carolina to earn a Division I offer, securing his first offer from Eastern Kentucky.
“It is great to see all of the hard work pay off and to have a staff that recognizes that and is willing to take the first step,” he replied. “I had a great chat with Coach Hamilton. He told me about the program he is developing at Eastern Kentucky and he thought I could fit his system.”
EKU was the first school to pull the offer but he has already been hearing from Belmont, Appalachian State, Elon, Davidson, and Liberty, while also taking visits to Belmont and Appalachian State.
He enjoyed both visits, getting a chance to check out both campuses and get a behind the scenes look at each program.
Ross is a new name to start tracking for sure and with his versatility, more programs could be jumping on board.
“I grew up playing point guard, so I’m comfortable with the ball in my hands as well as playing off the ball. I can score the ball from all three levels and have worked to become more than just a shooter. I can also rebound and block shots with my length.”
