2027 James Minlend:

Minlend is one that we have talked and written about before, but that was when he was part of the Class of 2026.' It was recently said that he has reclassed to 2027 and he is looking to be a name to really watch out for.' When you talk about his game, it is hard not to be intrigued by his length at 6'2, his athleticism, his ability to attack the rim, and really fill it up; he has done so consistently all summer long.' And with the bloodline that he follows, Minlend should quickly be on your watch list.

2027 Javian White:

White is another player that we have seen quite a bit over the last year or so, and he has garnered some early eyes his way. The 6'0 prospect is a smooth guard who has great instincts, can excel out in transition, scores consistently using his length and skillset, and has a great understanding of the game at his age.' Each time we have viewed him on the court, he has been a strong scoring option and does so from a variety of levels.'

2027 Jeremy Duhon:

Now, Jeremy Duhon is a new name to North Carolina, but his last name should certainly catch some eyes and the attention of basketball fans around.  Not knowing too much about him outside of a bit of research, he is the son of head coach Chris Duhon at Gaston Christian, and the former Duke star/NBA pro. Knowing what his father brought to the table, Jeremy certainly has the basketball background that could carry him a long way, so he is one that I'm very excited to learn and watch over the coming years.

2027 JJ Short:

Short has been a standout from time to time, and should be a name to watch develop as his time comes.' But when we have seen him over the summer, whether it was with NC Rise or NC Spartans in the past, he brings that leadership presence to the table at such a young age. Short understands how to help run the show and make high IQ plays, wants the ball in his hands, makes smart decisions, and is comfortable in scoring off the bounce.' He still has room for growth but he shows those early flashes that you have to like early on.
