The state of North Carolina is blessed with an overabundance of talent. In the North Carolina 2018 class, 60 plus players signed with D1 schools and another 40 plus signed to play at the D2, D3, NAIA or Juco level. Quite impressive numbers! This year, the 2019 class is on the same course to have 100 plus players continue to play at the collegiate level. In our unsigned senior spotlight, we want to take a closer look at 6’2 Chaz Gwyn of Winston-Salem Prep in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and is someone that we strongly feel is a scholarship-worthy player.
With three-point shooting at such a premium these days, it’s become difficult to understand how Gwyn doesn’t already hold an abundance of scholarship offers. He’s currently the leading scorer for a very successful Winston-Salem Prep organization that has marched to a strong 14-4 record thus far. Gwyn is known for his perimeter shooting, but hasn’t been limited to spotting-up this season and has shown the ability to score in a multitude of different ways. He’s posting nightly averages of 17.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.9 steals while shooting 45% from the field and an incredible 49% from beyond the arc. Now that Gwyn has expanded his game so much, folks can forget how unbelievably reliable he is when darting off screens and operating from the catch-and-shoot role. Make no mistake, Gwyn has all the makings of a Division I guy and has even proven himself on the national stage time and again.
We’ve seen him many times since our CP3 Live in 2017, but what we wrote seemed to accurately encompass Gwyn and his abilities, stating, “Among the most underrated players for Team CP3 is 6’2 Chaz Gwyn (2019) and the incredible shooting he brings from a game to game basis. Aside from Trey Murphy, there isn’t a better shooter/floor spacer in the state of North Carolina than Gwyn. He is so accurate from three-point range and rarely misses any shot twice in a row. Few players have a form that is more repeatable and no one shoots it with more confidence. Once Gwyn heats up, there is no cooling him down, as only he can snap his shooting streak. However, he is more than just a shooter. Gwyn knows how to toy with opponents into giving him a free path to the basket, where he is a reliable finisher. Armed with a solid handle and high IQ, Gwyn will continue to be a productive and efficient player at the high school level. He should be a very coveted player at the next level, where he can be extremely valuable to any team at any level.”Since then, he’s only continued to grow as a player and two-way leader for Winston-Salem Prep and Team CP3. Gwyn absolutely possesses Division I talent, which makes his lack of recruitment somewhat perplexing, especially given his next-level-friendly skillset and shooting. However, smart programs will be forced to get involved sooner than later, as Gwyn should be able to contribute for a variety of different places.
