Greenfield School (Wilson, NC)
2017-18: 25-10 (6-0)
NCISAA State Championship Finalists
Over the past 10 years, Greenfield School has been a must stop place for college coaches and fans of great basketball alike. In that time frame, Head Coach Rob Salter has sent countless players to college all the way from D3 to the highest level even having a McDonald’s All American and the state’s All-Time leading scorer Coby White.
This year’s team will be no different. They have a roster filled with next level talent and a group of guys who have great chemistry and play very well together. This should be a fun year! With schools like East Carolina, Rice, Campbell, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington, Elon, Mount St Mary’s and more coming through offers should start to come.
Let’s take a look at the team…
New to the team this year may be their post productive player. 6’1″ junior Creighton Lebo, who transfer over from Rose High School after averaging 20 points, 5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game as a sophomore. Most importantly, he is a very good point of attack defender, averaging 3 steals per game last season. Lebo, son of former UNC great Jeff Lebo, is a Division 1 prospect and should see his recruitment pick up as the season and his visibility continues.
While Lebo could be the most productive player on the team, it is 6’5″ junior Dji Bailey who may be the best prospect. Blessed with a natural basketball frame, wide shoulders and long arms. He is an incredibly skilled wing who can pass, shoot or handle the ball. It will be interesting to see what role he takes on this team with his ability to create for others as well as shoot the ball. Looking at his college prospects moving forward, it will be interesting about how much stronger he gets. Without question, he should already be sitting on Division 1 offers, and having schools at every D1 level coming through. Exact level for Bailey, to be determined.
This team’s leading returning scorer is 6’5″ Jacori Outlaw, at just under 10 points per game. Outlaw had a great summer and is looking like he is ready to take a major step forward. The lengthy, slashing wing has upside has a multi-positional defender. He has a solid handle as a secondary ball handler and is becoming a knock down jump shooter. Another prospect Division 1 schools should be looking closely at, this season will be interesting for him.
Obviously you can’t teach size, so when you have an athletic and lengthy 6’8″ on your roster it opens eyes. Junior Jahmi Foster fits this mold, and carries the intrigue along with it. Only having been playing basketball for a couple of years, Foster’s game is quickly rounding out. He is a big who does a great job rebounding and blocking shots. What is really impressive is his ability to move his feet on the defensive end. Standing 6’8″ with the ability to block shots, rebound and move his feet on defense there is a lot to like. A new name for recruiting boards, he is one who will move up recruiting boards as soon as he is seen.
