The NC Top 80 brings together the 80 best players in the state, regardless of class, regardless of position. It allows the big name guys to jostle for ranking and even scholarships. It also allows the over looked guys to go right at the highest ranked kids to find their place.

This event was no different, however the common thread between all of them is they all competed. Every player touched the ball consistently, plays were made in the half court, and guys took pride in defense.

Today I am going to cover the Power Forward position. Here are the guys who showed out during the day:

6’6” Sophomore Logan Vosburg – Orange HS – Brand X

Talk about stepping up to make the most of an opportunity. Vosburg was an invitee to the NC Top 80 from his performance at the Spring NC Phenom 150 camp. From the opening tip Vosburg’s displayed his high motor and offensive skill set. He was second in the camp in scoring at 20 per game. He scored at 3 levels, with consistency. Vosburg shot 68% from the field, made 2 3’s and even threw in 4 boards per game.

6’9” Junior Edrice Adebayo – Pinetown Northwood – Team Loaded NC

Adebayo was only able to play in one game, but he quickly made his mark on the camp in his time there. During the game, Adebayo averaged 10 points going 5-8 from the field. However it was in drills that Adebayo really stood above the rest. His motor is and willingness to get better is apparent. Not only did Adebayo attack every drill with a high motor, he also accepted coaching and even asked for it. Adebayo is elite.

6’7” Junior Grant Williams – Providence Day – CP3

Williams had quite the Junior season creating a stir and having his recruitment pick up. He went toe to toe with numerous Top 25 type guys and produced great numbers each time out. This production brought interest from the likes of Vandy and Stanford, while offers from Charlotte and Yale. In this event, Williams was able to draw some great match-ups going against the likes of Iran Bennett and Osinachi Smart. The high academic Williams averaged 11.3 Points and 2.7 Boards while shooting 64% from the field.

6’8” Sophomore Morgan McKay – Christ School – Team Loaded NC

McKay has been opening eyes for the last year with his sturdy frame and unique skill set. McKay had the full arsenal on display here. He went 3-3 from beyond the arc, and also shot 72% from 15 feet and in. McKay has good touch, and an understanding how to get open. Look for the intrigue on McKay to open some eyes and have his recruitment pick up this summer.

Other Standouts

Unique Skill Set
6’6” Sophomore JP Moorman – Greensboro Day –

Highly effective, that’s the best way I can say it, Moorman’s game is highly effective. His game produced across the board in camp, averaging 10 Points, 5 Boards, 1.3 Assists and shot over 56% from the field. He finished in the camp’s Top 5 in the unique combination of Rebounding and Assists. Moorman gets good run for his High School team, Greensboro Day, who just played in the Dicks National Championships.

6’6” Sophomore Deng Kongdok – New Garden Friends

There was a lot of intrigue around Kongdok for the day. Not many people had seen him before, but the lefty attacked the basket and shot the ball consistently. On the day he averaged 6 Points and 2 Boards, shooting 60% from beyond the arc.
