Trejon Jacob: Unknown, No More

Expect Offers to Start Flowing in Soon Even after averaging over ten (10) points per game at the prestigious NC Top 80 Camp, many people in this area, have still not heard of Millbrook High School’s 6’4 wing Trejon Jacob.

Kody Shubert: Look Test Aside, This Kid Can Play

The look test is a real thing. It is human nature to size up situations based on past experience in particular situations. Figure it safe to say that when first looking at Lincoln Charter’s Kody Shubert, he does not pass the look test. First off, Shubert is a 5’11” rising sophomore. He is average size, very unassuming. He isn’t skinny, but he isn’t bulky just average. Shubert has a touch of acne...
