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 6’5 Trevon Spencer of Word of God, who we strongly feel is a college-level player.

Blessed with quality size, length, and athleticism, Spencer is an intriguing player that has only begun to scratch the surface of his long-term potential. He’s somewhat between positions, but understands how to consistently affect the action on both sides of the ball. Spencer plays with above-the-rim explosion on a fairly regular basis and shows no fear of defenders when attacking the basket. He possesses a solid amount of defensive versatility and is capable of containing two to three positions comfortably at the high school level.
Coach Brian Clifton on Spencer, “Trevon excels in transition due to his tremendous length and athleticism. He plays either forward position and has touch from mid range.”We saw Spencer really flourish at our Hoops and Dreams Showcase, where we stated, “The long-bodied wing/forward prospect is able to affect the game in various different ways and showcased that throughout this event. He possesses solid versatility on defense and was able to guard multiple positions whenever necessary. Spencer embraces his role on this squad pretty well and is capable of filling multiple roles on the court.”Spencer is extremely valuable to this Word of God team and provides a certain level of two-way toughness and energy that allows him to seemingly always find success.
