6’1 2020 Creighton Lebo (Greenfield School)
The transition to Greenfield has been an easy one for the son of former UNC great Jeff Lebo. Creighton is a cerebral, high IQ and fundamentally sound scoring point guard. In the opening game the Phenom National Showcase, Creighton was dialed in and clicking on all aspects of his game. He enjoyed a game high 26 points, including four 3-pointers. Look for Greenfield to make a serious run this year at the NCISAA 1A championship. They have some intriguing young prospects.
6’0 2020 Landon Sutton (High Point Christian)
Landon Sutton just makes winning plays. We’re talking about a young man that has a tremendous feel for the game and simply knows how to score within the team structure. Without question, Sutton is a low risk, high return scoring guard that can beat an opposing team in so many ways. In the exhibition game against a very talented Liberty Heights team, Sutton had a game high 15 points but constantly made big plays down the stretch.
6’8 2019 Nick Evtimov (Greensboro Day)
Simply put, Nick Evtimov was outstanding in the win over Christ School and continues to be one of the most undervalued and under recruited prospects in the North Carolina 2019 class. We’e talking about a strong physical power forward that plays with a high motor, has excellent footwork in the post and has passer friendly hands. More importantly, Evtimov has really slimmed down, gotten noticeably stronger and quicker. Always known for his footwork and craftiness in the post area, Evtimov has developed into a tough two-way player. Evtimov finished with 19 points and was instrumental in Greensboro Day pulling out the exciting and hard fought victory.
6’10 2020 Isaiah Todd (Trinity Academy of Raleigh)
Rarely do you find a young prospect that is so physically gifted as Isaiah Todd, not to mention a young man who is so polite, well mannered, and as humble as one could ever imagine. Already listed as one of the nation’s elite level prospects, you would never guess it with the way he handles himself off the court. It’s easy to see, while he maintains the media attention, he is still just a super young man who has a bright smile, warm and charming personality. On the court, he is able to do things that players his size typically cannot do. Simply put, Isaiah Todd is advanced beyond his years and has the opportunity to be one of those special young players that rarely passes by. That being said, Todd had a team high 19 points and led Trinity Academy to a exciting and entertaining 54-51 win over Cannon School.
6’6 2020 Josh Massey (United Faith)
Josh Massey has a unique blend of athleticism and skill. His calling card is his consistency and hard work ethic displayed on the court. In addition, Massey is one of those young players that doesn’t mind doing all the little things that often goes unnoticed on the court. We were impressed with his team first approach and winning attitude, not to mention his poise and maturity. For the game, Massey tallied a game high 20 points
