At the beginning of each new year, Phenom Hoops works to assemble a series of articles centered around unsigned senior prospects. Last season, over one hundred players from North Carolina went on to play at the Division I, II, III or NAIA levels, and that number looks likely to continue increasing with the current senior class. Typically, we take a closer look at guys who are overlooked and underrated, and today’s edition will highlight Eric Wynn of Wilson Prep and Team Push.
We’ve covered Wynn various times throughout the years, including his time with Garner Road Whitley, where we stated, “Wynn is a big, strong, fairly skilled big man with great hands and the ability to space the floor with efficiency from the perimeter. He operates well out of the post and displays soft touch as a finisher. His recruitment has started to pick up, but Wynn will likely collect a slew of offers over the next twelve months.” Since then, Wynn has only continued to further solidify his abilities with Team Push, where we stated, “The Team Push squad of unsigned seniors proved to be a very entertaining group, and Wynn is as productive as anyone on their roster. He’s a big, sturdy post prospect with an excellent amount of polish—both for his size and position. Wynn displays touch, footwork, and the ability to overwhelm opponents on the block or space the floor at an effective percentage. He utilizes his body well around the basket, especially as a rebounder, and runs the floor properly in transition. “
That being said, it’s pretty clear that Wynn will ultimately be coveted by a variety of scholarship-level programs. His size, touch, and overall offensive ability should be enticing to numerous college coaches. He possesses excellent footwork and can space the floor at an efficient rate, but also understands how to dominate opponents on the block. Wynn utilizes his body very well as a rebounder and displays nice passing vision for his size/position. He’s stood out as a leader for Team Push this summer, and should have a ton of opportunities to further his playing career at the next level.
