2021 Jarvis Moss (Cannon): Moss was absolutely tremendous on the floor, scoring and willing his way on the court. He looks ready for the spotlight, now being a primary ball-handler, knocking down shots off the bounce, and picking his spots. He was cash-money throughout the game and really captured eyes on what he hopes to be a big season.
2022 Christian Reeves (Cannon): It is time for the 7-footer to show what he has, as he will man the middle for this program. The agile big brings good mobility, inside touch and presence on both ends, and a shot-blocker. Reeves has seen an uptick in his recruitment but really could take off more if he continues to show how he can operate, run the floor, and be a difference-maker on both ends.
2023 Trey Horton (Davidson Day): Horton has very good size and frame for his age, but he showcased his ability to get to his spots and knock down shots from behind the arc in this game. Hitting multiple three’s, he is one that could really continue to develop his game and is one to watch.
