2021 6’0 Jamarii Thomas (Piedmont Classical)
There is so much to like about Thomas. Now that he is back and fully healthy, he is looking to make a statement this year. He is as tough as it gets on both ends of the floor. He talks the talk and backs it up with his play. Physically strong guard that can score and dish, as well as get after it on defense. Love what he brings to the floor.
2021 6’9 Dondre Watson (Quality Education)
Watson is one to really start tracking big time around the area and as a national prospect. He brings fantastic size, length as a wing prospect but his ability to be a player down low, run the floor and use his power, as well as step out brings immediate intrigue to the table. Just receiving an Arkansas offer, expect more to be coming his way.
2023 5’11 Trey Green and 2023 5’11 Jaylen Curry (Vance)
These two are the duo of the future. Green just has a fantastic understanding of the game and how to run an offense. Whether it is in the halfcourt or in transition, he reads defenders really well. Jaylen Curry can fill up the box score, whether it is knocking down three’s or finishing at the rim. He can do it all as a freshman.
2021 6’5 Bryce Harris (Greensboro Day)
Harris fits the mold for GDS in how they used JP Moorman a few years ago. Their talent is a little different but Harris’ ability to run the floor and handle, as well as be a force (even at 6’5) down low due to his strength will be key this year for the Bengals.
2020 6’4 Kalib Matthews (Henderson Collegiate)
Matthews came in as a known shooter but one can see that he is continuing to get stronger and developing his overall offensive game. He finished strong and attacked when the chances were there. It is hard to believe how many schools overlooked him but he is going to be in for a huge year.
2020 6’3 Cam Hayes (Greensboro Day)
With his decision behind him, Hayes is now focused on leading the Bengals this year to another title. The point guard played poise and was able to find his points with his jumper. Have always said that his mid-range jumper is tough to defend and he showed it today.
2021 6’3 Javonte Waverly (Henderson Collegiate)
Waverly is special and impacts the game in so many ways for his team. Whether he needs to score, defend, or dish out to his teammates, he can do it all. He plays with tremendous passion and is so smooth with his game. Looking quicker, and stronger, which doesn’t help opponents in any way.
