There’s a lot of turnover for the Chargers of Cox Mill. Duke Freshman Wendell Moore, UNC Charlotte Freshman Caleb Stone Carrawell, and Charleston Southern Freshman (Football) Cody Cline all carried the program to new heights in their time at the school. Head Coach Jody Barbee has moved on as well, leaving former West Brunswick Coach Ty Johnson to take the reins in Concord as Cox Mill looks to establish a new identity.
Luckily for Johnson there’s a lot of young talent in the Cox Mill program, let’s take a look at some of the guys that will look to lead Cox Mill this upcoming season.
6’3 2021 John Baker
Baker appears to be “the guy” for Cox Mill this upcoming season. He possesses a great blend of toughness, skill, and physical/athletic gifts that will help him lead this team to another playoff birth this upcoming season. He loves to get to the basket where he uses his excellent touch and body control to finish at the cup. He appears to be a no brainer scholarship player and with continued development possibly see himself becoming a division one level prospect in the next 8-12 months.
6’4 2020 Bailey Gentile
Bailey should play a key role for this team as a guy that can come in, stretch the floor with his shot making, and just bring a positive impact at both ends of the floor. He was more of a reserve last year, but when he had his opportunity to get in the game, he usually made a play. Expect him to capitalize on his increased minutes this season.
6’1 2022 Jaquava Propst
Propst has a chance to become a really freaking good point guard. His quick-twitch ability to get by whoever is guarding him is uncanny, he has a really nice feel for the game, and has the athleticism to go with it. The experience he gains this year will be vital to his development as a prospect. By the time his junior season rolls around, expect Propst to see his profile to grow as a prospect in a major fashion. A lot to like here, put this name in the memory bank.
6’6 2021 Tyler Powell
Powell is a wide bodied forward that does a great job as the interior presence for this group. He boxes out, cares about the little things, and does a great job on the offensive glass giving his team more opportunities on the offensive end. Powell should be a walking double double for this Cox Mill team this year, expect his recruitment to pick up in the process. A really productive player.
6’5 2022 Karon Boyd
Boyd is a kid that has a ton of upside. At 6’5 he is incredibly mobile, long, and has excellent timing when blocking shots. He does a nice job moving without the ball and creating open looks for himself, as well as getting to the rim in transition with ease. He still has a lot to work on, but his energy in practice will allow him to get opportunity after opportunity, further developing his overall game. Boyd has a chance to completely evolve his game if he puts the work in, and there’s no doubt he has an awesome set of tools to work with. Another name to put in the memory bank on this Cox Mill roster.
