Coach: George Marshall
#58: 5’7 ’23 Caleb Senyo (Cane Creek Middle School)
Starting things off, we look at a player that knows how to run a team and make a consistent impact, Caleb Senyo. He’s a young, wiry point guard prospect that offers a quality blend of scoring and playmaking. Senyo shoots the ball particularly well from perimeter, but also frequently touches the paint and sets up others. He plays hard, unselfishly, and contributes well with any group of teammates. Next in his development process is working to add strength, as it would make him a more physical all-around defender. Coach Marshall on Senyo: “As Caleb grows, he can work on being a leader by communicating offensively and being aware of all the positions on the court. He brings great effort and attitude! Strength will be huge as Caleb continues to develop. He should stay positive and continue to become a great defender and player.” Senyo has a great skillset and proves to be an effective floor general at every camp he attends, which should prepare him for the high school ranks.
#61: 5’8 ’22 Joshua Rogosich (North Raleigh Christian Academy)
Next, we look at a player that always seems to stand out with his ability to shoot the ball, Joshua Rogosich. He’s a slightly undersized off-guard that poses a major spot-up threat from beyond the arc. Rogosich plays with a nice motor and is a willing passer that looks to make the right play whenever possible. Next in his development process is working to become quicker, as it would allow him to defend the ball with more force. Coach Marshall on Rogosich: “Joshua can continue to work on his defensive positioning and be a leader by being aware of others on the court. He did an awesome job of running the court during the third game of the day. That type of tenacity will help you along the rest of the way.” Rogosich knows his identity quite well and should become a nice contributor at the high school level, especially if he maintains his current two-way approach.
#83: 6’0 ’19 Jaelen Whitley (Hickory Grove Christian)
Moving onto a player that was able to relentlessly score the ball whenever he touched it, Jaelen Whitley. He’s a strong-bodied guard prospect that is simply wired to score. Whitley mixes it up and scores from all three levels, but is especially accurate when pulling-up from midrange. He forces turnovers, utilizes his body well on both ends, and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Next in his development process is working on playing more within the team concept, as he has the ability to make his teammates better. Coach Marshall on Whitley: “Attitude and effort are the keys to being a successful player. Jaelen should continue to prioritize that going forward in his career. His ability to get other players involved will be essential to getting seen by college coaches and working to be ready for the next level.” Whitley is able to assert his scoring will with any group of teammates, which could make him a solid late addition for the right program.
#93: 6’1 ’22 Gerald Gary (Dutch Fork High School)
Continuing onto a player that showcased a pretty useful and well-rounded foundation throughout the day, Gerald Gary. He’s a long, quick guard prospect that does a little bit of everything at a solid rate. Gary can pass, handle, score, and defend the point of attack. He plays with a high motor and does a great job of getting involved in the action. Next in his development process is working on his ability to get others involved, as it would make him a better teammate. Coach Marshall on Gary: “Gerald needs to be aware of help-side defense and communication. As you go forward in your career, these two pieces will be absolutely essential. I believe that he has awesome potential, and once his defense matches his offense, you’ll be in a great place going forward. Good luck the rest of the way.” Gary enjoyed a quality showing at camp and should be a solid contributor during his upcoming sophomore season, especially if he continues to work.
#94: 6’1 ’23 Thomas Oppold (Wando High School)
Next, we look at a player that is just being to scratch the surface of his long-term abilities, Thomas Oppold. He’s a young, high-motor guard prospect that offers a pretty balanced offensive approach. Oppold operates within the team concept and can score effectively from all levels, but is arguably the most valuable as a spot-up guy right now. Next in his development process is working on his positioning and overall on-ball defense, as it’ll make him a more impactful player. Coach Marshall on Oppold: “Thomas should continue to grow as a defender, so that he can put himself in the best position to lead his team. He has a great attitude and gave great effort! His hustle was such an awesome part of his game and really stood out consistently. Obsess over defense and you can be special.” Oppold competed hard on both ends of the floor and has nice physical tools for his age, so we’ll be monitoring his progression going forward.
#106: 6’2 ’22 Jackson Hawkins (North Iredell High School)
Moving onto a player that operates with a strong, team-first mentality on both sides of the ball, Jackson Hawkins. He’s a strong-bodied wing prospect that understands how to get involved without forcing the action. Hawkins actively pursues rebounds and any available loose balls, but also showed the ability to spot-up or attack the basket. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a craftier finisher when attacking the basket. Coach Marshall on Hawkins: “Jackson can continue to be a leader by communicating on defense and developing his off-hand. He has a great attitude and provides great effort. I absolutely love his hustle and hope that he never loses sight of the importance in that. Also, be able to be the person who guards the best player on the other team.” Hawkins’ motor and overall work ethic set the tone nicely throughout camp, and should allow him to become a solid contributor during his upcoming sophomore season.
#111: 6’3 ’19 Joshua Oliver (NC A&T Middle College)
Continuing onto a player that really stood out with his motor and attention to the little things, Joshua Oliver. He’s a long, wiry forward prospect that consistently puts the team first and looks to cause havoc for the opposition. Oliver is a great two-way rebounder and on-ball defender that can force turnovers and pitch the ball ahead in transition. He operates nicely within the team concept and knows when to assert himself within the offense. Next in his development process is working to tighten up his handle and become a more reliable ball-handler. Coach Marshall on Oliver: “Joshua can continue to focus on basic shooting drills, so that he’s able to catch and score while being consistent in all games. I absolutely loved his attitude and effort. That alone will take you a long way towards reaching your goal!” Oliver possesses a lot of useful tools to go with his solid upside, which could make him a great late addition for the right program.
#125: 6’5 ’23 Dice Royster (Wesleyan Christian Academy)
Next, we look at a player that was undoubtedly the most appealing and productive performer from this team, Dice Royster. He’s a young, athletic wing/forward prospect with an excellent feel for the game and strong two-way versatility. Royster can burden the scoring load quite well on offense, given his ability to handle and create for himself or others. He scores on all three levels and is capable of playing well above the rim with relative ease. Next in his development process is working on becoming a more disciplined all-around defender, as he has all the necessary tools to shut down various different opponents. Coach Marshall on Royster: “As Dice grows, obsess over the small details of the game and become a dominant two-way player. He has an absolutely great attitude and provided great effort. He has amazing potential and I hope that he stick with the grind, so that you can reach your full potential.” Royster was excellent throughout camp and should be the primary two-way leader next season at Wesleyan.
#133: 6’6 ’19 Joshua Robinson Jr. (Southern Guilford High School)
Finishing up, we look at a player that brought a lot of intrigue with his approach and two-way versatility, Joshua Robinson Jr. He’s a long, wiry, athletic forward prospect that possesses a very nice array of skills, particularly for his size. Robinson scores the ball pretty efficiently from all three levels and has the necessary ball-handling ability to take his assignment off the bounce. He shoots it very well for his size and has all the tools to play at the next level. Next in his development process is working on becoming a more disciplined defender, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Marshall on Robinson: “Joshua should continue to obsess over rebounding for his position. Once he becomes a dominant rebounder, he’ll be able to take the next step with scoring and helping his team win. Hustle should be his ultimate priority going forward. Stand out by your effort.” It’s shocking that Robinson isn’t more of a coveted asset, but that should change over these next few months, especially if he continues to work.
