6’3, 2020, Ja’Quez Cooke (Charlotte Dragons)
Cooke is a physical wing prospect and he got everything he desired on the drive.
Cooke is agile off the bounce, he’s got a surprisingly smooth handle in the open floor, and Cook utilizes his stocky frame to muscle through the paint. In one of the most competitive games on the day Cooke put up a strong 17 pts against Team Winston. Cooke fought -through multiple defenders at times to get to the cup, he sent the game into double OT, before the Dragons eventually fell. Cooke impressed with his relentlessness and versatility, Cooke also shot the ball well from mid range off the pull up.
Defensively Cooke can guard multiple positions, he’s got quick feet and good lateral movement. Cooke also has the strength to match up on some forwards down low.
6’8, 2019, BJ Mack, (CP3 17U)
Mack continues to add to his bag and it seems the latest item is three point range.
Mack has developed into quite the pick N roll option, he’s been a strong finisher at the cup but yesterday Mack showed impressive touch from deep. In a dog fight with Team Charlotte, Mack established himself as a focal point offensively, Mack looks more polished than ever on the block he’s slimmed down but remains a bull down low. Mack has added more finesse to his post package as well he showed off some new moves, and continues to be a gifted passer from the paint.
There isn’t a lot of flash but Mack will absolutely get the job done, Mack currently holds offers from Georgia, Ole Miss, and Va Tech among others.
6’3, 2019, Ren Dyer, (Loaded 704)
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.
Currently Dyer holds an offer from Western Carolina, all NC mid majors should take notice there is some upside here.
5’9, 2020, Jordan McPhatter, (Team CLT 2020)
McPhatter is a pure pass first point guard he will run the show and orchestrate poetry in motion.
McPhatter is a natural leader on the floor already at an early age, he embraces the pressure and wants the rock in clutch moments. This 2020 group played up the entire weekend and made it to Championship Sunday. McPhatter proved his toughness against older and more experienced guards. McPhatter’s court vision is well beyond his years, he repeatedly shredded defenses with crispy no look passes, McPhatter also got his offense going. McPhatter has range well beyond the three point mark, on the drive his first step is quicker than most and McPhatter doesn’t shy from contact at all.
McPhatter’s stock should continue to trend upward through July as the 2020 NC cycle attracts more attention.
5’9, 2021, Camian Shell, (Team Winston 16U)
Shell is another true point guard and one of many talented lead guards in a stacked NC 2021 class.
That being said Shell has the poise of a battled tested post grad, it doesn’t seem like any in game situation shakes his demeanor. Shell has played up all travel season and he continues to handle every challenge with class. Shell was arguably the best player on his high school team as a frosh in one of the toughest conferences around. Shell is an efficient scorer at all three levels; he continuously made shots from beyond the arc, Shell is tough to stay in front of he may have been the quickest guard present. Shell is a kid other guys love to play with because he will usually find the open man and always makes the extra pass.
Shell will be a well known name in the hoop state sooner than later, he’s got all the makings of a future division one point guard.
