Team 8 Coach: Chase Geter #8: 5’11 ’23 Micah Jones (Holly Springs) Starting things off, we look at a player who simply knows how to run a team and set the tone on both ends of the floor, Micah Jones. He’s a smart, quick point guard prospect with sharp vision and the ability to touch the paint at will. Jones finishes well for his size, but typically looks to create opportunities for others....read more
(1) 6’8 Zymicah Wilkins (R-S Central) There are numerous guys who were in the mix for the top spot in our updated rankings, but Zymicah Wilkins ultimately walked away with the honor. His blend of IQ, size, skill, and polish makes him extremely difficult for most opponents to try and contain. Wilkins can dominate from the block, space the floor, or consistently make plays with the ball in his...read more
With the June and July Live Periods on the horizon, there’s no better time for teams to compete to gauge their ability against high-level opponents. Our G3 Showcase is slated to feature a heavy mix of independent organizations and shoe-circuit programs—so there should definitely be something for everyone in attendance. The circuit teams nearing their halfway point should ultimately...read more
6’8 ’23 James Scott (Seventy-First) Given the difference between these two rosters (especially following the Donovan Raymond injury), Scott could ultimately be the biggest x-factor on either team.

Scott is long, poised, and really embraces...read more
West Charlotte advances to the NCHSAA 3A State Championship For head coach Jacoby Davis, this season has had its fair of adversity, with a late season injury to 6’8 star Donovan Raymond. Last season, West Charlotte was in the I-Meck 4A Conference, which was probably the toughest conference in the state. With realignment, West Charlotte moved to the 3A in the newly formed Queen City 3A/4A...read more
6’7 ’24 Draven Pilson (Forsyth Country Day) The Furies are as balanced as any team in the state, and Pilson’s steady growth makes them even more dangerous. While it seems rare, he truly shows progression each time he takes the floor. Pilson has drastically improved as a perimeter shooter over the last few months, and can now spot-up, attack off the bounce, or operate around the basket. He’s a...read more
6’2 ’25 Chad Traylor (Team United) Although the entire roster is intriguing, there’s something about Traylor’s poised, steady identity that makes him so appealing. He can run the offense or operate without the ball, and is able to find equal amounts of success in both areas. Traylor’s high IQ is evident through his two-way approach, as everything he does is purposeful and intentional. He’s a...read more
