2024 6’8 Richard Goods (Grimsley):

Goods should be a huge priority for so many programs of different levels. The 6’8 is a strong, physical forward who is continuing to have a huge year in averaging 21.0ppg, 14.2pg, and 3.1bpg. Goods can be a demanding big that is hard to slow down, attacks and looks to rip the rim off, has excellent touch and feel on the boards as well as finishing with touch around the basket, and is also showing more of his ability to step out and be a threat. The time is now to make him a target, as he can help a program win and be a force on the court.

2024 6’9 Isaiah Sutherland (United Faith):

Another big man who has not only grown as a player but is truly understanding how he can impact the game on both sides of the court. Sutherland is an athletic forward who has really embraced his team, has been excellent in showing his ability to operate inside and out, finishes well and runs the floor extremely well, and is confident enough to step out to knock down perimeter shots. Watching this young man as a player, he has really developed into a strong force but I think he still has room for growth which makes him even more intriguing.

2024 6’10 Mason Hagedorn (Huntington Prep):

We are going to put Hagedorn on this list. He started at Combine but is now at Huntington Prep, but he has been a focal piece here in North Carolina for some time. On several occasions, Hagedorn has been able to showcase his ability and impact as a skilled big with tremendous size. He runs the floor well and has the skill set to operate down in the post well, showing a strong feel and touch. But he is one of the more skilled bigs to step out and be a consistent threat in stretching the floor from behind the arc.  Hagedorn would be a strong steal for a program late.

2024 7’0 Ebrima Jabbi (Combine Academy):

You can’t deny what Jabbi brings to the table; his pure size and physical frame certainly catch your attention.  Jabbi just has a knack for the ball down in the paint and has continued to grow and develop his overall feel, but his best years are to come. He can be a presence both offensively and defensively, scoring over defenders or altering shots on defense.  Jabbi though has a chance to be a nice piece at the next level as he continues to develop.
