Dye has all the leadership qualities on and off the court to be a game-changer at the next level.

6’0 Kenny Dye (2018)

Flight 22 Elite/Northside HS

Throughout the North Carolina hoops landscape, there might not be a more consistent player than Dye. He’s a proven winner at both the high school and AAU levels, and that’s largely due to the qualities he brings to the table. Dye is a very levelheaded player, always showing great patience and maturity on every possession. His game will immediately translate to the next level, as he can fit in any role at the point guard position. If a team needs scoring, Dye can provide it in a number of ways, from all three levels; he knows how to access efficient shots off the dribble with relative ease. Dye is a destroyer in the midrange, where he has a number of pull-ups and hesitation moves to freeze defenders. He’s so smart and crafty, able to read and breakdown defenses quickly, making him incredibly difficult to stop. Dye gets where he wants on the floor and does a phenomenal job creating for others, as well as himself. He makes his teammates better every game, on both ends of the floor. Dye’s teams are better when he’s on the floor, running the show and setting the tone. Defensively, he plays bigger than his size and with tremendous IQ; Dye is a stopper that is capable of mirroring his opponent on and off-ball. Though he may not be the biggest player in the gym, Dye is almost always the smartest.

Currently, Dye is an under-recruited prospect that has done everything possible to prove himself as a D1 caliber player. A lot of people get wrapped up in the complexities of basketball, but Dye keeps it simple and that has proven to be the recipe for success. He has a variety of interest from all levels, but there should be no more doubt in Dye’s ability to lead a team, which will certainly translate at the next level.
