Coach: Fred Buckman

#0: 5’6 ’25 Cooper Solomon (Charlotte)

Starting things off, we look at a player that produced quite well despite being the smallest and youngest camper on this team, Cooper Solomon. He’s a wiry guard prospect with a solid handle and the ability to knock down open jumpers along the perimeter. Solomon plays with an active motor and looks to do the dirty work whenever possible. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find more scoring opportunities. Coach Buckman on Solomon: “Cooper is a nice guard that shows a willingness to compete on both ends of the floor. He played well against bigger/older guys and knew when to defer versus when to take advance of his offensive chances. Cooper was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Solomon made numerous plays during his time at camp and could be a prospect to watch over these next few years. 

#1: 5’10 ’24 Coen Locklear (Wilmington)

Next, we look at a player that consistently found ways to involve himself in the action, Coen Locklear. He’s a strong, sturdy guard prospect with solid instincts as a penetrator and finisher. Locklear handles the ball well and understands how to get others involved whenever possible. Though he proved to be a useful creator, Locklear also found opportunities without necessarily requiring the ball in his hands. 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 Buckman on Locklear: “Coen is a nice guard with a well-rounded approach to the game. He can work on being more vocal and continuing to further his ability to create off the dribble with more regularity. Coen was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Locklear enjoyed a quality showing at camp and has the tools to become a useful high school contributor sooner than later. 

#2: 5’10 ’21 Jayden Cornwell (Rock Hill)

Moving onto a player that was able to highlight a willingness to do the dirty work on either side of the ball, Jayden Cornwell. He’s quick, rugged, and does a nice job of moving as a cutter without the ball. Cornwell rebounds the ball well for his position and looks to make hustle plays whenever possible. Next in his development process is working to become a crafiter ball-handler, as it would make him a more lethal creator off the dribble. Coach Buckman on Cornwell: “Jayden is a nice point guard that looks to set up the action and involve his teammates whenever available. He can work on being more vocal and continuing to further his ability to penetrate to the basket. Jayden was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Cornwell made his presence felt in various ways during his time at camp and could be poised for a productive senior campaign. 

#3: 6’0 ’23 Jack Stanford (Sanford)

Continuing onto a player that made a fairly lasting impression with his poise as a creator, Jack Stanford. He’s a steady, well-rounded point guard prospect with a quality feel on both sides of the ball, especially for his age. Stanford is unselfish with the ball in his hands and always looks to set up others before hunting for his own shot. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a better finisher through contact. Coach Buckman on Stanford: “Jack is a nice floor general. He knows how to effectively run a team while taking advantage of easy scoring opportunities whenever available. Jack handles the ball really well and showed the ability to breakdown his assignment. He was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Stanford proved to be an asset for his team during camp and should be able to carve out a quality role over the coming months. 

#4: 6’0 ’21 Qmar Stroman (Charlotte)

Next, we look at a player with a pretty well-rounded skillset and overall approach to the game, Qmar Stroman. He’s a strong, physical guard prospect with an active motor and unselfish mentality. Stroman is great at breaking down his man, getting downhill, and finishing through contact. He’s also able to contain his assignment very well defensively. Next in his development process is working on his consistency as a shooter off the dribble, as it would make him a more dynamic offensive threat. Coach Buckman on Stroman: “Qmar has great ball skills. He can handle the ball, attack the basket, finish strong, and various other things on offense. Qmar is a solid defender with quickness and the ability to position himself for success. He can continue working on his shot release. He was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Stroman enjoyed a pretty productive showing at camp and could be poised for a strong upcoming senior campaign. 

#5: 6’1 ’24 Kaedon Porter (Shannon)

Moving onto a player that showcased a pretty advanced skillset, especially for his age/grade level, Kaedon Porter. He’s a smart, well-rounded guard prospect with size, skill, and the ability to create for himself or others. Porter is a strong penetrator that can find scoring chances with or without the ball in his hands.  Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a more reliable on-ball defender. Coach Buckman on Porter: “Kaedon is a nice guard with great physical tools for his age. He displayed good instincts and a creative sense with the ball in his hands. Kaedon is great at getting downhill and finishing or setting up others, but also showed his usefulness as an off-ball cutter. He was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Porter was certainly one of the more appealing long-term prospects on this team, so it’ll be exciting to monitor his progression going forward. 

#6: 6’1 ’22 Christopher Roberts (Fort Mill)

Continuing onto a player with a fairly well-rounded skillset and approach to the game, Christopher Roberts. He’s a wiry, unselfish guard prospect with a reliable perimeter jumper, both off the catch and dribble. Roberts moves well without the ball, makes the extra pass whenever available, and looks to make hustle plays whenever possible. Next in his development process is working to get quicker, as it would make him a more reliable on-ball defender. Coach Buckman on Roberts: “Christopher worked really hard throughout the event. He sees the floor well and shows a willingness to set up open teammates whenever possible. He needs to work on communicating better but still found ways to get involved in the action on both ends of the floor. Christopher was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Roberts did a lot of things well during his time at camp, averaging 10 PPG, and should be able to carve out a nice role during the upcoming season. 

#7: 6’3 ’23 Jake Shearin (Matthews)

Next, we look at a player that was arguably the most productive all-around performer for this team, Jake Shearin. He’s a wiry, well-rounded forward prospect with a great rebounding sense and ability to secure (and convert) second-chance opportunities. Shearin plays with a high motor and naturally seems to make his presence felt as a result. He defends with purpose, fights for extra possessions, and consistently finds ways to score. Next in his development process is working to add strength, as it would make him even tougher to contain around the basket. Coach Buckman on Shearin: “Jake is a great kid that listens well and adapts quickly. He works hard and will assert himself when the team needs it most. Jake finishes and rebounds well but also highlighted a quality amount of skill for his position. He was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Shearin was one of the most reliable contributors on this team, averaging 10 PPG, and should be able to carve out a nice role during the upcoming season. 

#8: 6’3 ’22 Dakota Wheatley (Greensboro)

Moving onto a player that easily made his strongest impression as a shooting threat from the perimeter, Dakota Wheatley. He’s a wiry, long-bodied wing/forward prospect with a reliable jumper and the ability to defend. Wheatley finishes well and can attack off the bounce, but is at his best when operating as a shooting threat. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find even more opportunities as a spot-up threat. Coach Buckman on Wheatley: “Dakota is a knockdown shooter and great defender. He sees the floor well and can make plays without the ball in his hands. Dakota showed the ability to attack off the dribble, where he’s capable of creating for himself or others quite effectively. He was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Wheatley did a lot of things well and should be an asset to his high school team going forward. 

#9: 6’5 ’21 Quint Mouer (Charlotte)

Finishing up, we look at a player that effectively operated as the main interior presence for this team, Quint Mouer. He’s a big, strong-bodied post prospect with an incredibly unselfish approach to the game. Mouer is a nice floor-spacer with the ability to knock down perimeter shots at a solid rate, but also makes the extra pass whenever available. He plays very hard and naturally seems to make his presence felt on the glass as a result. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to find even more scoring opportunities. Coach Buckman on Mouer: “Quint is a great stretch four with the ability to consistently hit jumpers from 10-15 feet. He finishes well with both hands and played hard on both ends of the floor. He was coachable and displayed a positive attitude throughout the weekend.” Mouer enjoyed a nice showing at camp and could be poised for a productive senior season.
