6’1 2020 Creighton Lebo: Greenfield School
Lebo was an incredibly consistent producer and shot maker at Greenfield last year as a junior. He and his teammates came away with the NCISAA 1A state title largely due to the performances he put up in their playoff run and he continued his excellence at the start of his senior year. He has some of the purest shooting mechanics in the state with excellent footwork as well. He’s not the quickest or most athletic guy on the court, but he uses his savvy, ability to read the defense, and capitalizes on angles to get his shot off over the defenders. I think he’s worthy of being recruited by Division One schools due to his ability to make shots and play mistake free basketball. His recruitment should pick up throughout the course of the season.
6’3 2022 Jaden Bradley: Cannon School
Bradley is one of the best point guards in America regardless of class and it doesn’t take a long time of watching to appreciate what he brings to the table every time he touches the ball. Bradley is a “heads up” playmaker that’s always looking to make the right decision with the ball. He gets to the rack with ease and has one of the most diverse lay-up packages I’ve ever seen at the high school level. He’s clearly developed as a leader, understanding that this Cannon School team will go as far as the kid they call “Silk” takes them. He’s maturing right in front of our eyes as a player and a person, we can’t wait to see the next step he takes! Expect Bradley to be recruited at the highest level possible over the next couple of years and prove to be the next great PG out of North Carolina.
6’8 2020 Jamari Sibley: Oak Hill Academy
While a lot of the attention from Oak Hill is going to Cam Thomas and his walking 30 piece that he brings to the table every night. Guys like Jamari Sibley can get lost in the shuffle sometimes but he showed everyone tonight why these High Major schools are recruiting him. He’s a 6’8 wing forward that has the necessary length and athleticism to be an impact guy on the defensive end at the next level to go with a really intriguing offensive skillset. Sibley can spot up from deep, use his athleticism in transition, and slash from the wing using his excellent size and instincts. He’s a fun player to watch when he has it going and should be a huge piece for Oak Hill as they look to get back to Geico Nationals once again.
6’8 2020 Josh Hall: Moravian Prep
With college coaches and national media in attendance, Josh Hall showed everyone that he’s a force to be reckon with. He still hasn’t been his normal self from beyond the arc to start the year but he has found a way to score in an incredibly efficient manner. He’s getting to the rack at will, finishing in traffic at an unprecedented rate, and finding a way to get tough bucket after tough bucket. With a decision looming and all of the eyes of the recruiting world on him, he continues to perform at a high level. There’s reason to be excited about his ability beyond the college level, but for right now Hall is showing the work he put in over the summer and it’s paying incredible dividends.
6’6 2020 Reggie Raynor: Northwood Temple Academy
Raynor is making his 2nd appearance in the “Magical Five” in as many weeks and his showing this week is due to the work he put in on the defensive end. With sophomore point guard Jaquante Harris taking over the game on the offensive end, Raynor was tasked with stifling former Team Felton teammate and Old Dominion Commit Brady O’Connell of Ravenscroft and he did an excellent job. He made life extremely difficult for O’Connell and the rest of Ravenscroft’s roster, and he also found a way to get some huge dunks at the end of the game to seal the victory up and bring some excitement to the crowd. Raynor continues to show that he’s a division one level prospect that should have some love thrown his way from coaches of that level after the early signing period wraps up. He’s a high level talent and competitor, what else do you need?
