Offer-Worthy Seniors from Tyler Lewis Hoop Fest

6’8 Jajuan Nicholls (NC GBB) It’s difficult to find a reason as to why Jajaun Nicholls isn’t being recruited by more college coaches. He’s a strong, mobile post prospect with a steady presence on both ends of the floor. Nicholls possesses touch and can reliably finish with either hand around the basket or knock down the occasional midrange jumper. He gives consistent effort on the glass and...

Player Standouts at Day Two of Tyler Lewis Hoop Fest

6’7 ’23 David Peral (Mount Tabor) Various players have shown progression within this Spartan roster, but Peral’s growth has been truly unbelievable. Since the start of the travel ball season, arguably no player has improved more. He’s a scrappy, low-maintenance big man who understands how to play hard, do the dirty work, and outplay his assignment on both ends of the floor. Peral effectively...

Under the Radar Names from Week 2 of Hoop State League East

6’1 2023 Jake Hart (Strong Center)Jake Hart finished the day with, what was in my opinion, the performance of the day, finishing with 24 points, 11 assists, 8 rebounds and 6 steals.

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Team Camp (Day 1, Part 2)

2024 Carlos Vazquez (Wayne Country Day): Every time I watch this young man’s game, I can just see a program finding ways to get him on the floor and for him to make plays in so many ways.  At 6’5, he shows a little bit of everything, with his ability to impact the paint and attack the glass, create off the dribble for himself and score, operate and play multiple positions, etc.  Really...

Whether it was scoring (finished with 19 points), getting on the boards, making plays for his teammates, or playing with a strong motor, Taylor opened a few eyes in Game 1 of the day. 2027 Braylin Hill (Future Prep): Hill is another young prospect that...

Players to Watch in the NCHSAA State Championships: Hayesville v. Chatham Charter

6’7 ’22 Jake McTaggart (Hayesville) Although he’s committed to Charlotte for football, Hayesville’s playoff run should definitely remind folks about McTaggart’s notable basketball ability. At a strong, fluid, physical 6-foot-7, he’s a matchup problem (especially in 1A) and among the top multisport athletes in the state. He’s tough and plays hard, which allows him to regularly control the...
