Five to Know

Jairus Hamilton
6’7” Sophomore Cannon School (Concord, NC)

Breakout event for Hamilton. Playing previously at the David Rose Memorial Day Classic, Hamilton picked up an offer from Hampton. This weekend he picked up an offer from Virginia Tech. Hamilton already carries a prototypical wing frame. He plays with a high motor and aggression, but interestingly enough does a great job setting up team mates with the pass. Hamilton is just figuring out how good he can be. Has upside as a Top 25 type guy.

Jay Huff (Virginia)
6’11” Senior Voyager Academy (Durham, NC)

Huff broke out in this event last year, and his recruitment ended about as quickly as it started as he committed to Virginia. Huff is a skilled big who can shoot beyond the arc, put it on the floor to attack the basket, and deliver pin point passes. Huff also has great length and springs to go along with impeccable timing causing him to be a high level shot blocker. Many college coaches are adopting our thought that Huff will be a pro. He is a Top 50 kid with a chance to end his college career in the Top 10 of this class.

Jaylen McManus
6’6” Senior North Mecklenburg HS (Huntersville, NC)

Maybe no one did more for their status, in this event, than McManus did. He had the full staff of Charlotte on hand to watch and walked away impressing the likes of Richmond and others. As spots continue to fill up elsewhere, look for McManus to become a commodity throughout his senior year.

JP Moorman
6’7” Junior Greensboro Day School (Greensboro, NC)

Perhaps no one has done more to enhance their profile that what Moorman has done over the last month. Since his showing at Session 1 of the NC Phenom 150 he has picked up offers from Richmond and UCF. Well his recruitment took another step forward at the Phenom HS Jamboree, as he picked up an ACC offer from Virginia Tech. Moorman has a great skill set that envokes visions of an athletic Georges Niang. He has comfort as a point forward in the half court, range beyond the arc, and explosion to rebound in traffic. Look for his recruitment to continue to trend this way.

Wendell Moore
6’5” Freshman Cox Mill HS (Concord, NC)

Moore came into the event as the Top 2019 player in the country. As he performed, he did nothing to dispel that notion. Moore is a unique talent, in that he carries an overpowering frame for his age. However, maybe his best skill is his ability to see the floor and make plays for his team mates. With his length and shoe size, there is little doubt that Moore will continue to grow. He is already big enough for college, but you put him in the 6’7”/6’8” range and he becomes all the more special. With current offers from NC State, Charlotte, Tennessee, and Wake Forest his recruitment will be fun to watch as he continues to grow.
