Charlotte Christian has had a tremendous season, with a lot of talent found all over the floor. One young rising prospect, JC Tharrington, continues to show that he is a name that people should be on the look for in the coming years.
Tharrington is a talented point guard that plays well beyond his years, with a high basketball IQ and is a knockdown shooter. It is why he was one of a few selected to the NC Top 80 this past year, in which this was said about him.
“JC has a great feel for the game. He really shoots it well and sees the court. He gets his teammates the ball in position to score. In addition, Tharrington is the type of player others enjoy playing with. More importantly, he knows how to run a team and is the consummate PG. He’s a low risk, high return player that will make winning plays.”
This past week, Tharrington received his second offer from Campbell, joining Appalachian State now in the mix. But he has also been gaining interest from programs such as Wofford, Furman, Liberty, Middle Tennessee, Dartmouth, American, Southern Utah, and Davidson, along with a few others.
Tharrington has averaged 8.0 point this season, while also dishing out 7.4 assists per game for the Knights but this young man has a tremendous future ahead of him and more programs should be coming his way as he continues down his path.
Poise is essential and floor general JC Tharrington is among the most poised players in North Carolina. The guy plays like a seasoned veteran despite only being a sophomore and, in many ways, the teams’ success hinges on his play. Tharrington doesn’t have many holes in his game; he scores very efficiently from all three levels and has decision-making abilities that every college program needs out of their point guard. He has all the makings of a next-level floor general, as he handles the ball frequently yet rarely turns the ball over while creating ample opportunities for teammates. Though Tharrington isn’t the flashiest player, he has an extremely high IQ and seems to always make the right play. Currently he holds an Appalachian State offer, but more are going to pile in, as he is already a leader on a talented Charlotte Christian team.

“JC Tharrington has an advanced skill set and his intangibles are simply off the charts. He is the perfect PG to navigate the talented team over the next few years. Tharrington is a pass first PG but has the ability to take control over the game with his efficient perimeter shooting. More importantly, he has the creativity to make things happen for his team and in our opinion you won’t find a more cerebral and consummate PG in his class.”
