The early signing period has come and the college coaches recruiting boards have reshuffled. They are out on the prowl looking for players who are still available to fill their roster spots. This cycle has seen many players slip through the cracks, high level prospects who, for whatever reason, aren’t getting the love they should.
The great things about Phenom’s Capital City Jam is a lot of these high level unsigned seniors will be on display, and they will be going up against committed (or other highly thought of) prospects. Let’s take a look at a few unsigned seniors who college coaches already have their eyes on.
6’8″ Josh Hall of Moravian Prep (NC)
Offers: Marshall, Call State Fullerton, Eastern Michigan, Georgia Southern, Coastal Carolina, etc…
A 6’8″ wing who has had the likes of Providence, Arkansas, Pitt and Oklahoma State get involved over the last week. He has deep range, handle, athleticism and has been averaging close to 30 points per game this season.
6’3″ Caleb Burgess of Moravian Prep (NC)
Offers: USC-Upstate, NC A&T
Tough nosed, strong/big framed point guard who has put it all together this season. It all started with an efficient 21 point, 7 rebound performance against Oak Hill that went into overtime. The likes of Lasalle, UNC-Charlotte, Temple and others have been through to see him. Expect more to come at that level.
5’11” Mikey Dukes of First Baptist (SC)
Dukes is absolutely electric and there is really no other way to put it. To say he has no offers may be a little misleading as he has 20 or so HM football offers. That said, he has always maintained his love for basketball, if the right school came in, he would think hard. Yes, he is good enough for said, “right school”.
6’4″ Idrissa Bivens of Liberty Heights (NC)
Offers: Ole Miss, Illinois St
Bives is a native of New York who is a big sized combo guard, able to play comfortably in a scoring role or a ball handling role. He is a smooth and efficient scorer, from each level and plays with an unbelievable pace and confidence.
6’5″ Deante Petree of Liberty Heights (NC)
This one is a bit perplexing, but nevertheless the strong and versatile wing doesn’t have any offers. He is a stat sheet stuffer, across the board, able to play many roles. His strength/toughness has him rebounding the ball and defending across the floor, his IQ has him assisting plays in the half court and his touch has him scoring from 3 or on the block. he makes winning plays.
