Next-Level Prospects Soaring Under the Radar 

6’4 Nick Elliott (Grimsley) Despite playing (and producing) on an entire roster of college players, Elliott still doesn’t have the appropriate recruitment. We will say it again: Elliott is firmly in the discussion with the top shooters in the state—and is arguably as accurate as anyone in catch-and-shoot situations. He’s also long, active defensively, and understands how to make proper decisions...

Reece’s Player Standouts from Phenom Jamboree

by: Ethan Reece 2022 Davis Wagner (Lake Norman) There’s several guys that always stand out for Lake Norman but it’s very clear that Davis is the leader of this group and it really shouldn’t be any other way. With a lot of talented underclassmen, it’s very fitting and crucial to have a senior lead the way in setting the standard in terms of tone and taking care of intangibles. Nothing flashy...

2023 Necorian Clark (Cedar Ridge): Though listed at 6’2 he plays a lot bigger with his impressive length on the court.
