Class of 2014 South Carolina Top 25 Rankings

This week, the Phenom Hoop Report will take a look at the high school rankings of the top players in South Carolina by perspective class. Over the years, the Palmetto State has been known for its fair share of top gridiron athletes with little to no depth to the hardwood. That has changed over the past few years and South Carolina is starting to make noise in hoops.
In the 2014 class, LJ Peak and Marcus Stroman are nationally ranked players and have already committed to Georgetown and the University of South Carolina, respectively. In the 2015 class, Perry Dozer and Jawun Evans have already become hot recruiting targets and are household names upon the recruiting gurus across the country and among high D1 schools. In the 2016 class, Seventh Woods has already become a You Tube sensation with his elite level athleticism and advanced skill set for his age and grade. That being said, South Carolina has added tremendous basketball depth and will become a more important state to recruit.
This is our inaugural rankings for South Carolina and we want to mention our list is based upon players we have actually watched and evaluated over the past six months.

  1. Keil Sherman from Legacy Charter should be on here. Scored over 1000 points at Eastside Highscool eady and just going into his Senior year now at Legacy. Was a lot more productive than Wes was at Eastside
