By Aaron Dickerson
5’10” 2021 Jordan McPhatter: Butler High School (NC)
An electric point guard with silky smooth handles and the ability to lead a team and distribute the ball and get everyone involved. He can get after the ball on defense and is willing to get on the floor for a loose ball at any time. All though undersized he possess a tenacity that few kids have, one would say he has that “Dog” in him.
6’1” 2020 Jake Ledbetter: Bishop McGuinness Catholic (NC)
A player with the unique ability to play the point guard or off the ball if needed. Has a jump shot that looks good every time the ball comes off his fingertips, Jake also has the ability to run the team and distribute the ball to his teammates with ease. His calm and cool demeanor always helps to keep the game simple and opponents on their toes.
6’4” 2020 Lane Harrill: Cherryville High School (NC)
Lane is a smooth two guard with the ability to hit a shot from anywhere inside of half court. Also, a tenacious driver who finishes through contact often, you can also rely on Lane to bring the ball up for your team and be able to distribute the ball to the open man. Several times he was on the floor diving for a loose ball and you can see that he is eager to do whatever is necessary to get his team the win, a quality every coach is looking for.
5’10” 2020 Jack Dortch: Charlotte Catholic High School (NC)
Jack was making it rain from the three-point arch all night long in his game against Clover, it didn’t matter whether someone had a hand in his face or not, the shot was going in. Its unusual to find a player with the smooth looking stroke that Jack possesses, every shot looks good as he shoots it. He also showed the ability to drive and finish through contact on several occasions. His free throw form is just as smooth as his long-range shot.
5’11” 2021 Colin Thomas: Charlotte Catholic High School (NC)
Although not the typical mold for a point guard, Colin was running the show for Charlotte Catholic all night ling as they dominated Clover. His ability to push the ball in transition and find his teammates in open lanes or finish through contact was incredible to watch. Colin was able to make several steals throughout the game and start the fast break, getting to the opponent’s basket quickly as he possesses blazing speed.
