6’8 2020 Jason Thompson: HoopState Elite/United Faith
Thompson recently made the switch from Garner Road over to HoopState Elite and he didn’t miss a beat in his first game with his new squad. Thompson fit right in, looking like one of the best players on the court in game one, he used his versatility to his advantage finding different ways to contribute in a tough loss to WCBA. Look for Thompson to have his production continue to increase with this new group.
6’4 2019 Jett Fortuny: WCBA/Cary High
Fortuny continues to prove himself as a prolific scorer just about every time he touches the floor and this instance was no different. He managed to set the tone early letting everything fly when the opportunity presented itself and he found a way to connect from distance, in the mid range, and at the basket when attacking in transition. Scholarship coaches NEED to watch this WCBA group in July.
5’11 2019 Marcus Metcalf: WCBA/Wayne Country Day
Metcalf has made headlines in recent weeks with his bombastic attack’s to the rack, be sure to check out BucketReel on Twitter/YouTube for the highlights, but what impressed me the most about him in this one was his ability to create and make shots for himself. Don’t get me wrong he still caught a couple clean baseline lobs but there’s much more to this kids game than athleticism.
6’4 2021 Malachy McGuirt: Palmetto City Hurricanes/Rock Hill High School
McGuirt was incredibly productive for a really fun Palmetto City squad that plays as one unit at all times, never wavering from a team concept that equates to incredibly efficient basketball. At 6’4 he is extremely versatile on the defensive end to go with a high motor on the offensive end leading to him living at the line and producing at a high level.
6’0 2020 Shakeel Moore: Team Loaded 16U/United Faith
Moore is an electric factory at the lead guard position, always with his head on a swivel looking to create big time plays for himself and others. Jumping with him will lead to immediate regret, cause this dude is one of the highest flyers in the HoopState and he can do sooo much more than just fly. He’s really finding himself as a point guard, put in a weird position today just playing with Team Loaded cause they don’t have Myles Tate he still fits right at home with just about anyone on the floor and consistently finds a way to be productive in a variety of ways.
