#94 6’4 2020 Jayden Beloti: Apex Friendship High School
Beloti is a guy that often slips under the radar due to the quiet nature in which he operates. He’s a long, versatile wing that can defend multiple positions on the defensive end and is wired to score on the offensive. His ability to attack off the bounce from the wing is his greatest asset, using his refined footwork and advanced finishing ability to keep the pressure on the opposition. He’s a good mid-range shooter and when confident a reliable three point threat, as he continues to become more confident in his game expect Beloti’s recruitment to pop in a major way in his senior season. He’s a no brainer target for mid level D2 programs, and could possibly see some attention from some of the elite D2 programs if he continues to put it all together. He’ll have eyes on him playing with Nick Farrar in High School next year, and should see his production translate into a lot of wins, and hopefully a deep playoff run next year.
#63 6’0 2020 Isaac Parson: Kinston High School
Parson is a silky smooth floor general that plays the game with flow, flare, and a ton of passion. His ability to create something out of nothing is uncanny, making those around him better and looking good while doing so. Parson had a really nice spring/summer with Team Trezz, showing the ability to run a talented team at a high level, and often putting his team before himself with the way that he operates on the floor. He has the ball on a string, incredible court vision/awareness, and a crafty layup package at the rim. His perimeter jumper is showing signs of improvement to a reliable level, and as that aspect of his game continues to evolve, expect Parson to pick up some interest/offers from high level D2s and low level D1s. He is someone that is going to be tasked with running one of the most talented teams in NC at Kinston next year, and there’s no question in my mind that Parson is up for that challenge.
#97 6’5 2020 Nathan Chambers: Hough High School
Chambers proved to everyone in attendance at camp this weekend that he’s a bonafide college level prospect that should be attracting attention from regional D3 schools. His inside/outside ability to go with his willingness to do the little things allow Chambers to have an impact on the game, regardless of who he’s on the floor with. He can post up, pick and pop, while even showing flashes of the ability to initiate offense from the wing. He has a great understanding of the game, and is even willing to do the dirty work in close hard fought games. He had a good year with Hough as a Junior last year, expect his production and profile as a prospect to grow in his senior season.
#112 6’6 2021 Noah Allred: Bishop McGuinness High School
Allred missed a huge chunk of last season after transferring over to Bishop McGuinness due to NCHSAA rules. We saw him with the NC Spartans during the travel ball season but he showed his entire bag of tricks at camp on Sunday when I had the chance to watch him. He’s a strong bodied 6’6 forward that possesses a ton of skill, shooting touch, and a great feel for the game. He’s comfortable operating just about everywhere on the floor, showcasing a bevy of moves on the block, in the mid-post, or out to the 3 point line. He can be a pick and pop guy, or someone that you dump the ball to on the block with the hopes that he can get his own bucket. He loves the baseline turnaround from 8-12 feet out, where he possesses excellent touch and footwork on that go to move. As he continues to improve his lateral quickness and athleticism, expect Allred to develop into a possible D1 prospect. He should have a big season at Bishop McGuinness with his size and shooting touch.
#106 6’4 2020 Ricky Council: Southern Durham High School
Ricky Council won MVP of the entire event and it was pretty obvious he was the best player in attendance on Sunday. His ability to simply fly through the lane for acrobatic and exciting dunks caught the attention of everybody in the building, but everything else he does as a prospect is why I think he’s a possible high major talent. His ability to catch and shoot paired with the explosiveness when attacking closeouts make him a lethal offensive weapon. His athleticism, size, and length give him the ability to guard the 1-3, and he has the potential to make some momentum swinging plays at the defensive end with his athleticism. From all accounts he was the most consistent performer on Team Felton’s UAA 17u squad, and holds a handful of Division One offers. As the world continues to see what Council brings to the table, expect more and more D1 coaches to throw the offer Council’s way, they’d simply be dumb not to.
