Today has been an absolute show due to all of the talent in the gym. A lot of top teams from around the region came to compete today for a little live period tune-up, getting themselves ready before all of the coaches flock to check them out. Here are some of the standout’s from the mid-day slate of games.
6’10 2019 Kadin Shedrick: Garner Road/Holly Springs High School
Shedrick has really established himself as a legit high major level prospect over the last six months and now that I’ve seen him a couple times this summer he 100% fits the mold as a high level prospect. His body has improved significantly to go with an incredible motor on the offensive end. You can tell within a few minutes of watching him that he’s incredibly comfortable within his frame. Shedrick possesses the ability to turn over both shoulders, and has started to develop a consistent mid-range game to go with that 6’10 frame. Without a doubt a can’t miss prospect.
6’1 2022 James Wilkins: Team CP3/Calvary Day
Wilkins continues to make strides within his own game on a remarkably talented CP3 14U squad featuring some of the state’s top players. He’s a classic shot making lead guard that often has those “no, no, no, YES” moments and that’s no coincidence. Wilkins is going to become one of the best difficult shot makers in the state if he continues to work and I have no doubt he will. He averaged around 20 PPG playing varsity ball as an 8th grader last year, look for that production to translate to a bigger stage next year at Calvary.
6’0 2020 Landon Sutton: Hoop State Elite/High Point Christian
Sutton was full on scorched earth in his game against NC Empire, the sweet shooting guard finished with 38 points on 10 made 3s in what was one of the best individual performances I’ve seen start to finish all year. He did absolutely everything for his squad in this one, handling a major chunk of the Point Guard duties, creating havoc on the defensive end with timely deflections and steals, and of course drilling 10 3s. D1’s need to catch this dude in July, he’s the kind that every program needs.
