6’2” Travian McCray
Village Christian (Fayetteville, NC)
Offers: USC-Upstate, Campbell, Radford, Stetson, SC State
Toughness is the key here, explosion and toughness in every sense of the word. He is a winner who makes everyone around him elevate their game. McCray is a strong and sturdy lead guard who makes shots and takes care of the ball. Sure he is a volume guard, but his wins games and plays with a level of intensity that is rarely matched. His offer list should exponentially grow during the late period, especially as he continues to knock of Top 50 programs in the country like he did twice this past weekend.
6’ Raishaun Brown
Asheville Christian (Asheville, NC)
Offers: Western Carolina
Brown is a quick on quick lead guard. He touches the paint often, getting anywhere on the court he wants off the bounce. He is incredibly unselfish and making great reads all over the floor. Brown is a crafty finisher in the paint and a deft 3-point shooter with a high, soft release. It is a bit surprising where his recruitment is at, but Asheville Christian is ranked 6th in our current NCISAA and playing incredible basketball. Offers should be coming.
5’11” John Michael Wright
Fayetteville Academy (Fayetteville, NC)
Offers: Arkansas St, Hampton
Wright has been a name people have talked through over the past year. His game has continued to get better and better along the way. This past weekend he showed the ability to truly run a team, with great decision-making ability and court IQ. His jump shot is consistently falling from 18 feet to beyond the 3-point arc. He is a long-armed defender and a highly explosive athlete. Wright is crafty in the lane and plays confidently. Another one who should see the offers start flowing as a late signee.
6’3” Caleb Burgess
Moravian Prep (Hickory, NC)
Offers: NC A&T
It has been quite a November for Burgess. It all started at our Carmel Christian Tip Off event where he went head to head with and took Cole Anthony into overtime. Burgess was spectacular during that game, and it didn’t stop there. He is a tough-minded 6’3” lead guard. He has the ability to score in the mid-range by creating space and getting to his spots. He takes care of the ball and is a willing passer. The likes of Wake Forest and LaSalle, along with others, have been in to see him. In November along he has played against 4 nationally ranked teams and 3 Top 100 point guards. Each game he competed. Low and Mid major coaches think he’s high major and high major coaches are taking note. All that to say, offers should be in line.
6’4” Idrissa Bivens
Liberty Heights (Charlotte, NC)
Offers: Ole Miss, Illinois St, McNeese St
Bivens has an unbelievable feel for the game. He is a no-nonsense, nothing flashy guy who just makes good reads. The New York native is able to slide between the point and the shooting guard positions. He is a shot maker, showcasing this going 8-10 FG (3-3 3P) in his first game for 22 points. His game has the feel of somewhere in between Ole Miss and Illinois State and schools at that level should be clamoring to get him. Again he is a shot maker, with great size, who takes care of the ball and has a high IQ. A lot to like there.
6’3” Quest Adridge
Mount Tabor (Winston-Salem, NC)
Somehow Aldridge has slipped between the cracks, which makes you wonder why or how. He is a very long 6’3” point guard who can handle, pass and shoot with great skill and IQ. He has deep range on his jump shot and is a blur in the open floor, with a crafty ability to finish at the rim. The beautiful thing about his game is that with his length and IQ he could easily slide between the one and the two at the next level. He is a true point or could be a true shooting guard. The offers should be coming soon.
