Championship Sunday is when the stars come out. Here are five names that did just that.
6’8” Unsigned Senior Eric Fox
What a difference a year makes. Fox has always been tall and skilled, but over this last year he has transformed his body (and also has grown an inch). Fox displayed a complete skill set, grabbing boards, putting it on the floor and making shots at all 3 levels. He is an available 6’8” skilled big that D1 schools should make sure to take a look at. He finished with 16 points and 13 boards in his Sunday game.
6’3” 2010 Caleb Mills
Team Vision (NC)
Mills exploded for 26 points against a CP3 backcourt that consisted of Coby White and Devon Dotson, firmly planting himself as a mid level prospect at the bare minimum. He has put up high scoring totals the entire week, going for over 20 in each game. This is even more impressive when you take into account that he is a year younger than all the competition he is playing against. Mills added an Appalachian State offer to go along with the Winthrop offer he already carried. He should quickly start to turn into a priority recruit for some schools.
6’8” 2018 Silas Love
Raid Nation (NC)
Love has come on strong over the last year. He was a force for 4A Hoke County last season averaging 17.4 points (64% FG), 10.5 boards and 2.5 blocks per game. Well over the summer he has expanded his game away from the basket. Along with catching put backs and alley oops, Love is able to get downhill from the wing in the half court set. He carries an intriguing skill set that led him to averaged 18 points, 11 boards and 4 blocks in his 2 Sunday games. D1s need to look here.
6’ 2020 Myles Tate
Team Loaded 704 (NC) 15s
Tate is quickly establishing himself as one of the premier lead guards in South Carolina’s 2020 class. He is jet-quick with the ball in his hands and is able to get anywhere on the floor he wants. In the 15u championship game against CP3, Tate led all scorers with 28 points and he led a furious 20+ point comeback to bring his team within 3 points with 5 minutes left in the game. He is still young, but he is one that firmly place on your SIM Card.
5’11” 2018 Jalen Johnson
Durham Hurricanes (NC)
Johnson has been a name we have been talking about for over a year now. However, point guards who do a bit of everything, with toughness and leadership don’t pop off the page. While watching Johnson this weekend, one long time scout said, “He’s just a professional in his approach.” Johnson has the ball on a string, showcased consistent range from deep and he takes pride in defending for 94’. Leadership and toughness are a must in your point guard, when you add in his ability to make shots, defend and touch the paint regularly you see yourself looking at a mid level point guard. He finished Sunday’s game with 26 points (5 3s), 9 boards and 6 assists. Don’t miss out on this one.
