Team 7

Coach: Reginald Mosley

#4:'5'11 '20 Jalen Cone of Walkertown (Walkertown)

Starting things off we look at one of the best young players in the state that has the potential to play at the highest collegiate level, Jalen Cone. He's a point guard that has the complete package on both ends of the floor. Cone is a dog and plays with an intense fire; the passion is clear, even when he's not in the game. Offensively, his arsenal is loaded; he's able to blow by opponents off the dribble and score on three levels quite consistently. Cone is very quick and that, in many ways, is his best two-way tool; he plays with a high motor and displays a high IQ on both ends. Coach Mosley on Cone: 'Jalen is a baller first and guard second! He has the ability to score at will and defends without excuse. Jalen can get to the rim with ease and finish with either hand, plus can shoot the open three-pointer consistently. He will even surprise you with a slam or two. He should continue to put in the work that he has up to this point. Jalen is a very great person, player and I look forward to more great things out of him.' Cone averaged 12 PPG throughout camp and could very well be among the best players in attendance three, five, or even ten years down the road.

#17:'6'0 '20 Darien Wynn of Dudley (Greensboro)

Next, we look a player that showed his legitimate potential to be a terrific two-way player sooner than later, Darien Wynn. He's a lead guard that prides himself on getting teammates involved; his ability to play team-first basketball is extremely refreshing. Offensively, Wynn is a fairly well rounded player, but prefers penetrating to settling for jumpers; his quickness allows him to get into the lane and make plays often. On the other end, he is more versatile than opponents anticipate, as he can defend either guard position (and even some wings) very well. Though Wynn is better with the ball, he does have the potential to play off-ball if necessary. Next in his development process is continuing to build his all-around game; he's going to be a nice player soon, but can be dominant with the right dose of work in the gym. Coach Mosley on Wynn: 'Darien is a great person and player. He has nice size, is willing and able to cover multiple spots on the floor. He's able to finish at the rim and is always looing to get the ball to open teammates. Darien is very coachable and willing to simply get the job done. He should continue getting quicker and become more consistent with his jumper. I'm looking to see him at the next level as he continues to get faster and stronger.' Wynn proved that he belongs among the states' elite and even averaged a cool 10.3 PPG throughout camp. He should be one of the guys we are talking about two or three years from now.

#18:'6'1 '18 Jahlen King of Greensboro Page (Greensboro)

Moving onto a player that could emerge as one of the best two-way players in the state sooner than later, Jahlen King. He's a point guard that knows how to frustrate opponents with his quickness and innate feel for the game. Offensively, he's a consistent scorer on three levels and has the ability to burn opposing guards off the dribble pretty easily. King knows how to run a team and displays a high IQ when doing so, creating shots regularly for himself and others. However, it is the defensive end where King earns respect of coaches, players and spectators, as he is a terror on and off-ball. He provides opponents with zero airspace and is a constant threat to rip the ball from anyone dribbling in his region. Next in his development process is to continue adding strength; King is already pretty strong, but it will only help him when he plays at the next level. Coach Mosley on King: 'Jahlen is a guard with nice size and has the ability to score in a variety of ways. He's an excellent scorer and defender. Jahlen can shoot and makes three-pointers with consistency, plus can get to the rim with relative ease. He should continue to train, practice and play at a high level, as his game is top shelf material. Jahlen is very coachable, willing to listen and learn. I'm looking forward to the next level with him.' King averaged 13.7 PPG during camp and has become an increasingly popular name over the last six months. Keep an eye on him entering summer play.

#42:'6'2 '20 Tristan Maxwell of North Mecklenburg (Huntersville)

Continuing onto a player that simply has basketball in his blood and it's evident the moment he walks in the gym, Tristan Maxwell. He's an off-guard that has ball handling ability and the two-way versatility to play multiple positions. Offensively, Maxwell cannot be left unattended or he will made defenses pay with a silky-smooth jumper that consistently falls on all three levels. His feel for the game is simply incredible; there isn't a shot that Maxwell is incapable of making and he will let opponents know early. Maxwell is already a phenomenal young prospect that commits to playing both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is continuing to work on all facets of his game as he has endless potential to harness. Coach Mosley on Maxwell: 'Tristan has great size and ability to play the game. He can knock down the open, off the dribble or catch and shoot jumper whenever he wants. Tristan makes it to the rim at a proficient rate; he should continue to train and compete against the best, as his game is only getting better. He has a very high ceiling and we should expect even better things from him in the near future.' Maxwell undoubtedly belongs at the next level, as it's all up to him and how much work he chooses to put in from this point forward to decide where that'll be.

#56:'6'3 '20 Demarcus McLaurin of E.A. Laney (Wilmington)

Next, we look at a player that approaches the game with passion and intensity on both sides of the ball, Demarcus McLaurin. He's a strong guard that has the ability to play with or without the ball, a valuable skill (especially for a young player). Offensively, McLaurin wants to take opponents off the dribble and get downhill, towards the rim and finish; he has the ability to take a bigger scoring load or play in a role. He has proved to be a quality defender and has great off-ball anticipation, where he can pick up countless steals. McLaurin's intangibles, athletic ability and motor already make him a productive player. Next in his development process is continuing to polish his jumper, as it would make him a very deadly offensive player. Coach Mosley on McLaurin: 'Demarcus comes to play and is willing to do whatever the coach asks of him. He has very nice size and feel for the game; he can finish with the best of them and a passion that just keeps getting better and better as the game goes on. Demarcus should continue to work on shooting and ball handling as he continues to learn and improve. He's a great player to have on any team.' McLaurin is an impressive rebounder on both ends; his future is certainly bright

#68:'6'4 '18 Coby White of Greenfield School (Goldsboro)

Moving onto a player that simply has all the tools necessary to become a dominant player, even beyond the collegiate level, Coby White. He's a guard that can play with or without the ball, though it is far wiser for White to run the offense. Offensively, he can do it all, whether it's scoring on three levels, finishing strong at the cup or creating for others, White can do it. To call him anything less than a lethal bucket-getter would be a great disservice to the UNC commit, as there are very few players in the country (regardless of class) that can score like White. On the defensive end, White can guard multiple positions and has the necessary speed, quickness and IQ to be a lockdown player. Next in his development process is to keep adding strength for the college game, as it would allow him to continue bullying opponents like he has in high school. Coach Mosley on White: 'Coby White has got it! Whatever needs to be done, he does: scoring, rebounding, defending and making his teammates better. He has a great attitude and passion. When the game is on the line, give him the ball or he'll find a way to get to it. Coby loves to win and it shows by his very high skill level; he's very coachable and willing to build up his teammates in whatever way he can. If he continues the work he has done, he will play and produce in college.' White was the highest scorer at camp, averaging 28.7, a full five points ahead of the second leading scorer. He will only continue to be a dominant player that should become a household name sooner than later.

#80:'6'5 '18 Samuel Okauru of North Raleigh Christian (Raleigh)

Continuing onto a player that can score the ball at will and has the ability to be a big-time player, Samuel Okauru. He's an athletic combo guard with a strong body, able to push opponents around on both ends of the floor. Offensively, Okauru is a three-level scorer; he can penetrate, dish to teammates or finish with force at the rim. His jump shot is smooth and the release is quick, making it very difficult for defenders to block. Okauru rebounds well and displays a high IQ on both ends; he's really a quality two-way guard that would fit at a variety of programs. Next in his development process is just continuing to further polish all the tools in his arsenal, as he needs to ready himself for the collegiate game physically and mentally. Coach Mosley on Okauru: 'Samuel has great size and skills; he's able to dribble and shoot with the best of them. He's willing to listen and plays with a great passion. Sam understands the game; he's willing and able to get better. He's one to keep up with as he continues to get stronger and grow. I'm looking forward to seeing him at the next level and with his size, the sky is the limit; he will make any team a contender.' Okauru had a quality showing at camp, averaging 11.7 PPG to go along with his terrific junior season, where he proved to be a phenomenal scorer.

#90:'6'6 '20 Dean Reiber of Northwest Guilford (Stokesdale)

Next, we look at a player that plays with a high motor and has the potential to be a stretch four, Dean Reiber. He's somewhat of a tweener right now, but that's okay, as he possesses the tools to be a dangerous inside-out guy. Offensively, Reiber operates out of the midrange area but has shown the ability to step out and hit the three-pointer. He runs the floor well and has good size, looks likely to keep growing. Reiber is a decent defender that displays nice footwork and a high motor, both on-ball and on the glass. Next in his development process is just continuing to sharpen his skill game and ability to attack off the bounce, as it would make him a more complete offensive player. Coach Mosley on Reiber: 'Dean has great size and the passion to play the game; he's willing and ready to do what is needed to help his team win. He can cover the perimeter and the post, as his footwork is very nice. Dean is able to hit a nice midrange shot or bring down the rim; he has the ability to get to the ball with ease and has a very high motor. Dean is a great player, person and should continue to train and study the game, as there are more good things to come.' Reiber is young and on the rise; he should be one to keep an eye on as he enters summer play.

#117:'6'9 '19 Emmanuel Izunabor of Fayetteville Academy (Fayetteville)

Finishing up, we look at a player that controls the paint on both sides of the floor with authority, Emmanuel Izunabor. He's a long big man that goes hard at all times and displays a really nice feel for the game. Offensively, he likes to operate off the low block and has proven able to finish anything within five feet with strength. Izunabor is a terrific two-way rebounder and gains numerous extra possessions for his team. He's a quality defender and has shown the ability to block shots in a variety of ways. Next in his development process is continue working on his post moves, as it would make him an even more dangerous player down low. Coach Mosley on Izunabor: 'Emmanuel is a player with great agility, size, speed and passion. His skills are finely tuned and he lets it be known that he's on the floor per manning the court, blocking shots, rebounding and putting the ball in the rim very strong. Emmanuel has a nice midrange jumper; he's very strong with a very high motor and moves like a smaller guard. He's got a quality turn-around jumper and is willing to do anything to win!' Izunabor has loads of potential and could be among the top players looking back five to ten years down the line.
