Chadwick is a young phenom making an early statement. This young star continues to play up and excelled through it all. He is a fierce competitor that will ball every second of the game doing anything he can to get the win. He is one of the hardest workers on and off the court you will ever find. Just like big brother Cross, he has an incredible IQ on both ends. His hustle can fuel a team on both ends.

Chadwick is an all-around player who can light you up from downtown or beat defenders with ease off the bounce. Understanding when to make the perfect pass or impose his will with smart heady baskets. Best floor runner at his size I have seen all year. He is a dominant low post presence with great footwork and timing; a relentless force gobbling up boards on both ends. This hungry man feels like he must get every rebound. A tenacious defender with scrappy energy changed and contesting shots.

The biggest improvement this season was stepping up his post play with his back to the basket and he did just that. Last season in the eighth grade, he played on varsity at his school where he averaged 7.3pts, 3.7rebs, 1stl, and 1 ast; the kid is special. In his two best games last season, Chadwick had 21pts, 6rebs, and 2stls against Mount Mission School, and 19pts, 5rebs, 2asts, and 1stl against Christian Academy of Knoxville. He had multiple 20+ pt games in AAU as well.

At the WV Showcase, he was the leading scorer and a monster on the boards in route to the championship win earning MVP honor. In the CP3 camp against elite talent from all over the country, he more than helped his own and drew heavy attention knowing he was a big-shot maker. Chadwick's goals for the upcoming season are to fight his way into the starting lineup and make a fierce drive to win the national tournament in Ohio. Coaches should know you can count on max effort to match those nice skills and he is coachable enough to be a go-to guy. D1 is a fair option clearly seen but would consider any level with the right fit. This will be one tough team to beat this upcoming season. Make a point to catch a show.
