#135: 5’9 ’24 Malik Ashe Jr. (Legion Collegiate)
Starting things off, we look at player that performed very well despite being the smallest and youngest camper on this team, Malik Ashe Jr. He’s a tough, scrappy guard prospect with excellent defensive prowess and a reliable penetration sense. Ashe is a quality finisher, especially for his size, and can knock down three-pointers at a reliable clip. He utilizes his quickness effectively on defense to force turnovers and push transition play. Next in his development process is working on becoming a better ball-handler, as it would allow him to run a team with better ease. Coach Baldwin on Ashe: “Malik was a great kid and teammate throughout the day. He has the ability to breakdown defenders and get inside the paint. He’s a solid defender on and off the ball. Malik can continue to work on speed/quickness and ball-handler in order to be a solid prospect.” Ashe enjoyed a nice showing at camp and could be a prospect to keep an eye on going forward, especially if he continues to work.
#139: 6’5 ’23 Jack Moore (Indian Land)
Next, we look at a player that really stood out with his ability to score the ball from all over the floor, Jack Moore. He’s a wiry, long-bodied forward prospect with a terrific scoring arsenal and the ability to apply offensive pressure with or without the ball in his hands. Moore is a reliable cutter and spot-up threat from anywhere along the perimeter. He works hard, displays quality feel, and understands how to make plays within the team concept. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him an even better finisher around the basket. Coach Baldwin on Moore: “Jack has an excellent attitude. He was a great teammate and communicator all day. Jack’s range and the ability to shoot the basketball were solid; he’s definitely a three-level scorer. He displayed the ability to penetrate, finish, and handle the basketball. Defensively, Jack displayed great instincts and proved to be a great on and off-ball defender.” Moore did a lot of things well during his time at camp and should be a useful contributor for his high school over the next calendar year.
#160: 6’0 ’23 Jack Walter (Cox Mill)
Moving onto a player that consistently found ways to make his presence felt as a spot-up threat along the perimeter, Jack Walter. He’s a steady, unselfish guard prospect with the ability to thrive through his role and capitalize on opportunities within the flow of the action. Walter is an excellent shooter that simply knows how to move without the ball, find space, and apply pressure off the catch or bounce. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more reliable finisher around the basket. Coach Baldwin on Walter: “Jack was a pleasure to coach all day; he fit into his role well, was a great teammate, and displayed a great attitude. He displayed solid range from beyond the arc and has catch-and-shoot ability. Jack needs to improve the use of his off-hand and ability to penetrate and get inside the paint. He’s above-average defensively on and off the ball. Jack can continue to work on improving his lateral quickness, footwork, and rebounding.” Walter made a solid impact throughout camp and will be a player to keep an eye on over the coming years at Cox Mill.
#163: 6’0 ’23 Jerrell Wilson (Reidsville)
Continuing onto a player that made a pretty lasting impression with his all-around defensive presence, Jerrell Wilson. He’s a tough, scrappy, high-motor guard prospect with a solid feel and the ability to overwhelm his assignment defensively. Wilson is a capable scorer from all levels but doesn’t force the action and looks to make plays within the flow of the offense. He does a great job of utilizing his combination of quickness and positioning to force turnovers. Next in his development process is working on refining the mechanics on his jumper, as it would make him an even better perimeter shooter. Coach Baldwin on Wilson: “Jerrell is a great kid to coach. He was a great teammate and offered a great attitude. Defensively, on/off the ball and in transition, he is a standout. Next for Jerrell’s development is confidence in ball-handling and improving his ability to shoot the ball. He’s very quick and moves well without the ball.” Wilson made his presence felt throughout camp and should be able to emerge as a useful contributor sooner than later for Reidsville.
#184: 6’1 ’22 Jamison Graves (Western Alamance)
Next, we look at a player that arguably stood out as the main glue-guy for this team throughout camp, Jamison Graves. He’s a smart, unselfish, very well-rounded guard prospect with phenomenal instincts as an off-ball cutter. Graves is equally as strong/consistent scoring the ball around the basket or along the perimeter. He’s an efficient offensive piece with the IQ and toughness to make a constant impact defensively. Graves rebounds well for his position, sets up others whenever possible, and knows how to fill in the gaps on either end of the floor. Next in his development process is working on becoming quicker, as it would make him even tougher for opponents to contain off the bounce. Coach Baldwin on Graves: “Jamison has a great work ethic and attitude towards his teammates. He’s an excellent team player. Jamison shoots the basketball well from all three levels and rebounds well from the guard position. He penetrates, can get to the basket, and defends the ball at a high level.” Graves proved to be an asset during his time at camp and should be a useful piece for Western Alamance over his upcoming senior season.
#187: 6’1 ’23 Logan Crook (Enka)
Moving onto a player that offered great balance and a fairly well-rounded approach, Logan Crook. He’s a wiry, capable two-way guard prospect with an understanding of how to operate and thrive within a role. Crook moves very well without the ball, poses a quality spot-up presence, and defends at an above-average level. His game might not be flashy, but it can coexist with any collection of teammates. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher around the basket. Coach Baldwin on Crook: “Logan is a great teammate with a great attitude. He plays with great effort for his team and has the ability to score from all three levels. Logan rebounds for his team really well, passes the ball effectively, and moves well without the basketball. He needs to improve his quickness and footwork as he continues to develop his game.” Crook enjoyed a solid showing at camp and will be one to keep an eye on over the coming years at Enka.
#211: 6’2 ’23 Zachary Goodman (Page)
Continuing onto a player that clearly stood out as the most reliable perimeter shooter on this team, Zachary Goodman. He’s a long, wiry wing prospect with a solid motor and overall feel for the game. Goodman moves extremely well without the ball and proved to be an absolute sniper from beyond the arc. That being said, he’s also very reliable in the midrange and more than capable of attacking as a penetrator. Goodman is a useful defender and strong rebounder for his size/position. Next in his development process is working to become quicker, as it would make him a better on-ball defender. Coach Baldwin on Goodman: “Zach was a lights-out shooter all day. He moves well and can find his spots on the floor. He maintains a positive attitude and confidence on the floor. Next in his development is on the defensive end. He rebounds the ball well and at a high rate for his position. Working on quickness and ball-handling is next for him to become a notable prospect in his class.” Goodman did a lot of things well during his time at camp and should be a useful contributor going forward for Page.
#214: 6’3 ’22 Devon Siagle (Moravian Prep)
Next, we look at a player that certainly made his presence felt as a leader throughout camp, Devon Siagle. He’s a wiry, energetic, long-bodied guard prospect with a tight handle and strong creation skills, both for himself and others. Siagle regularly operated as the offensive focal point for this group, offering a strong balance between scoring, defense, and playmaking. He finishes very well with either hand, adapts from either guard position, and displayed a quality feel for the game. Siagle also rebounded well for his position and proved to be a great teammate. Next in his development process is working to tighten up his footwork, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Baldwin on Siagle: “Devon was the most aggressive player on the floor. He led the team well with a positive attitude and great effort on both ends of the floor. He’s a three-level scorer and strong rebounder for his position. Devon displayed great vision and court sense. He will definitely be a great prospect going forward.” Siagle stood out among the top performers for this team and will be worth monitoring over the next calendar year at Moravian Prep.
#235: 6’5 ’22 Amarion McCree (North Edgecombe)
Moving onto a player that made a lasting impression through his sheer toughness and overall physicality, Amarion McCree. He’s a long, wiry, smart forward prospect with an excellent balance between skill and athleticism. McCree handles the ball very well for his size and shows the ability to generate clean looks for himself and others. He’s an efficient scorer from all three levels, but also displays a high motor and clear willingness to do the dirty work on either end of the floor. McCree is an exceptional rebounder and moves very well without the ball. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him an even better ball-handler against pressure. Coach Baldwin on McCree: “Amarion was the toughest, most physical player on the floor. He defends really well and displays a solid basketball IQ. He’s able to get to his spots on the floor, finish, and score from all three levels. As he continues to develop his ball-handling and passing, he will continue to grow. Amarion plays well defensively on/off the ball and makes his presence felt as a rebounder.” McCree showed a lot of ability throughout camp and could be poised for a productive senior season at North Edgecombe.
#238: 6’5 ’23 Jordan Hoover (Gramercy Christian)
Finishing up, we look at a player that showed a willingness to battle and embrace his role within the paint, Jordan Hoover. He’s a wiry, long-bodied forward/post prospect with a quality rebounding presence and useful finishing ability. Hoover moves well without the ball and proved to be a capable passer whenever presented the opportunity. He displayed an unselfish mentality and fairly high motor on both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him even tougher for opponents to contain. Coach Baldwin on Hoover: “Jordan has a great attitude and overall work ethic. He wants to be very good and plays with great effort. He’s a solid rebounder, but needs to improve on finishing around the rim and his ability to move quicker laterally. As Jordan continues to grow and develop his midrange game, he will be a solid role player in any program.” Hoover highlighted some quality flashes during his time at camp and will be one to watch during his upcoming season at Gramercy Christian.
