Walking into the Upward Center I came in with new names, and a few familiar names to watch. If one is from upstate of South Carolina they're already familiar with these faces, which was evident throughout the night. Families, classmates, and Bball fans filled the sideline with cameras rolling; daring not to miss a moment of the show these prospects put on. Here's what I thought about opening night of Upstate Fall League.

2019 6'1 SG Zach Baldinelli (Upward Stars/Boiling Springs HS)

Zach plays on a very young team, and he's already the go to guy. With such pressure on a 10th grader it can sometimes be overwhelming, but Baldinelli takes the challenge head on. Starting out as more of a passer, he then started to fill up the score sheet. He did this by attacking the rim and knocking down his very efficient floater. He also comes equipped with extended range. He ended the game with 32 points. Look for him to do big things this upcoming season. Catch him at the SC Top 80!

2018 6'1 PG Trey McGowens (SC Raptors/Wren HS)

I've always heard great things about Trey, but had to come see for myself. He didn't disappoint starting off the game with a fast break dunk, followed by a 3 pointer off of a steal. He plays very aggressive defense rather it's on the ball or shooting a passing lane to get a steal. McGowens can run the team as well. Trey can shoot the ball from anywhere and finish through contact with ease. He finished the game with well over 30pts. Already holding 6 offers the list should grow rapidly with his ability. Catch him at the SC Top 80!

2018 6'7 SF Zion Williamson (Game Elite/Spartanburg Day)

'When I step on the court I dominate' is what he yelled to the crowd; and that's exactly what he did. By now Zion has put the whole nation on notice with his ability. His body control for his size is something that is underrated. He can pass well and always looks to get his teammates involved in the action. Zion scores the ball pretty much whenever he wants to score. During the game he had 3 highlight dunks. The first one was on 2 defenders, the second a behind the back one hand slam, and to close the show a 360.' The kid is must see TV, and he gives the crowd exactly what they want to see. Recently picking up an offer from Duke the sky is the limit for Williamson. Catch him at the SC Top 80!

2017 6'4 PG Zach Butler (Dorman HS)

Butler leads the attack for Dorman. Everything that the team does runs through him. If he's not slicing through defenders to get to the basket, he's using his skill to create for teammates. Butler had much success with getting to the basket and finishing in a variety of ways. He has a nice floater and his strong frame allows him to finish tough lay ups through contact. His speed and range is very good also. He'll look to lead a loaded Dorman squad this season. Already having committed to Ohio, he can enjoy his last high school season without worrying about recruitment.
