The state of North Carolina is blessed with an overabundance of talent. In the North Carolina 2018 class, 60 plus players signed with D1 schools and another 40 plus signed to play at the D2, D3, NAIA or Juco level. Quite impressive numbers! This year, the 2019 class is on the same course to have 100 plus players continue to play at the collegiate level. In our unsigned senior spotlight, we want to take a closer look at 6’4 Ren Dyer of North Buncombe in Weaverville, North Carolina, and is someone that we strongly feel is a scholarship-worthy player.


So far this season, Dyer is posting nightly averages of 28.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, 3.4 steals, and 2 blocks while shooting 50% from the floor and 41% from beyond the arc. He’s emerged as one of the most intriguing unsigned seniors this year, due to his gaudy numbers, consistent production, and ability to overwhelm a variety of opponents with his two-way skillset. Dyer has scored 18 or more points in all but one contest this season and has included numerous 30, 40, and even 50-point games. What he’s doing is simply unbelievable, which makes his lack of recruitment even more perplexing. It’s extremely difficult to imagine a scenario where Dyer doesn’t completely thrive at the next level. That being said, college coaches need to start getting involved with the walking mismatch.


This past summer, our Brandon Blakney had the opportunity to see Dyer and stated, “Dyer is a silky smooth guard who can score it in a plethora of ways, he’s a sniper from deep and a willing slasher. Dyer was money from deep early on catch and shoot opportunities, he moves efficiently off ball and Dyer is ready to shoot it almost immediately upon the catch. Dyer has sneaky bounce, when defenders ran him off the line Dyer shifted into slasher mode and got to the cup, Dyer is an underrated finisher he got up and punched it in style. Dyer has a high basketball I.Q. and always seems to make the smart play.”There’s so much to like with Dyer, especially as he’s outperformed other more “coveted” prospects on a regular basis throughout the last few years. Hopefully, college coaches will continue to heavily pursue him and get their chance to secure an exceptional leader.
