6’3 2021 Elijah Jamison: Louisburg High School (28 Points)
Jamison is one of the best pure scorers in North Carolina regardless of class, showing a wide array of moves in his arsenal while he was looking to score. He has great size and length for a lead guard that’s always looking to score. For a right handed player he’s incredibly confident going left, and in fact he goes that route the majority of the time. He’s extremely comfortable in ball screen situations, showing his ability to run the pick and roll as a primary ball handler and find his rollers for easy buckets. He doesn’t have a lot of scoring around him, so the bulk of the scoring responsibility is on him and he always fulfills his duty in that regard. He’s averaging 32 a game on the year, putting him among the best in the country in that regard, expect him to continue to produce at a high level, no matter what setting he’s playing in.
6’4 2019 Jayvis Harvey: Southern Durham High School (15 Points)
The former Radford Commit is showing that he can get it done in a variety of ways, displaying the ability to score it from anywhere on the court and use his leadership to propel his squad to big wins. He’s gotten a lot more comfortable in the high post area in regards to creating for himself. He’s comfortable turning over both shoulders on that 12-15 foot fadeaway and has really developed an offensive arsenal that translates to the next level. At 6’4 he can guard both wing spots due to a frame that has really filled out since the summer. He’s strong, skilled, has a high character, and simply understands what it takes to be a part of a winning team.
6’3 2020 Luc-Richard Rameau: Ravenscroft School (29 Points)
Rameau is a strong-bodied guard that maintains a high level of productivity regardless of the setting. In AAU with NC Empire he was sensational, hitting big shots, playing lockdown defense, and willing his team to wins. With Ravenscroft he’s doing much of the same, using his strength to impose his will on weaker opponents, while knocking down shots from 10-15 feet at a high clip. He’s a great blend of size and skill for a guard that can do a variety of things for a team. He’s strong enough to guard bigger players, and skilled enough to take advantage of just about any matchup. He’s a big time football player too, but it seems like that basketball is the route he’s going to take at the next level. If he continues to do what he has been, he should have plenty of options.
6’0 2021 Cole Sinclair: Durham Academy (19 Points)
Cole Sinclair has established himself as one of the best shooters in NC’s 2021 Class. He’s hovered around 50% from deep on the season and he knocked down five threes in this one, often at key moments, propelling his Durham Academy squad (without MJ Rice FWIW) to a big win over Granville Central. He’s come a long ways in his ability to run a team, understanding time and place in his decision making, and moving without the ball. The next step for him is developing that first step, making the defense truly respect his slashing ability, further opening up more opportunities for Sinclair to let it fly, and if he does… look out.
6’0 2020 Lawrence “Mickey” Frost: Athens Drive High School
Frost is the definition of a glue guy, he’s always willing to do the dirty work for his team, and presents an element of toughness that a lot of guys don’t bring. He can heat up from the perimeter, but also gets downhill, using his incredible upper body strength to overwhelm the opposition. He communicates with his teammates and brings a level of comfort with his presence on the floor. He’s someone that NEEDS to be on the radar of coaches as this summer approaches, and all signs point to him running with Team Wall on the Adidas Circuit.
