Newcomers to Watch
The Mustangs are fortunate to have two of the top freshmen in the country coming to their program, and they happen to be twins. 6’1” Kobe Langley is more of a natural shooting guard (and right handed) and 6’1” Keyshaun Langley is more of a natural point guard (and left handed). Nationally, Kobe is considered a consensus Top 25 prospect while Keyshaun is considered a Top 50 player. Both are coming off leading their team to 3 consecutive AAU National titles. At every level they have won, and look to carry that trend on to high school.

Mt Tabor
Winston Salem, NC
Head Coach Andy Muse
4A Central Piedmont League
17-8 (9-3)

Mt Tabor has traditionally been a program that is always in the conversation for a deep playoff run. It seems that every season they are putting players into college. This year should be no different, as his best players are turning from underclass role players to upperclass leaders. They will not have a lot of size, however they will have good length throughout the lineup. Look for them to press, run, and be able to keep great stamina throughout the course of a game. They have a couple of players that are flying under the radar, and are a good target for D2 and D1 schools alike to sit and watch.

Players to Watch
6’3” Senior Cayse Minor

Minor is a high motor, jack of all trades guard. A player that you want the ball in his hands, and more times than not he will make a play. Minor plays hard-nosed defense, and always seems to be moving. He currently doesn’t carry any offers, however that should change the more he is seen. Minor can score at all 3 levels.

6’5” Junior Cameron Robinson
Robinson is uniquely talented. A player who has fallen far under the radar. Due to his elite track abilities, Robinson has missed most of summer basketball because he is travelling to national competitions. On the basketball court, Robinson is mutli-talented. On offense he fills the stat sheet, as he averaged 8 points, 5 assists, and 6 boards per game. On defense he is able to defend multiple positions due to his length and quick twitch. Robinson will also look to play point guard this season. He is a high academic kid, and a D1 prospect, who will take off once he is seen

Cox Mill High School
Concord, NC
Head Coach Jody Barbee
3A South Piedmont League
19-7 (14-2)

Cox Mill lost their best player, as do everything guard Matt Morgan is off to Cornell. However, just as quickly as Morgan is gone, Cox Mill brings in perhaps the top freshman in the entire country, with Wendell Moore. Seniors Ethan Goude and Messiah Baptiste had great summers and are ready to take on leadership roles for the team. Look for a fun year as college coaches come

Players to Watch
6’5” Freshman Wendell Moore

Moore is tracking as the top freshman in the state of North Carolina, and quite possibly the country. He is a physically imposing player with the size and athleticism that could play in college now. With his length and size of his parents Moore could reach upwards of 6’8”. His is able to handle the ball in the half court, and almost plays a Lebron James style of unselfishness. Moore is a unique talent, he already carries offers from Wake Forest, Tennessee, NC State, and Charlotte. Look for that offers list to quickly grow!

6’ Senior Messiah Baptiste
Baptiste experienced a great summer that saw him pick up multiple D2 offers. Baptiste is a very skilled scorer with a college ready frame. He has very deep range and exudes confidence on the ball. While Moore will most likely be the team’s best player, Baptiste will be the senior leader.

6’1” Junior Francis Sio
Sio is a high motor, high academic kid that is full throttle. He defends and is an able scorer from multiple areas. Sio is a college level player.

6’2” Freshman Caleb Stone Carrawell
Carrawell is the son of former Duke star and current Marquette coach Chris Carrawell. Still young in the tooth, Carrawell is one to start tracking now as a D1 prospect.

Westchester Country Day School
High Point, NC
Head Coach David Carrier
2A NCISAA Triad League
19-7 (13-3)

Westchester Country Day has a lineage of basketball talent that has gone on to the next level with the likes of Deuce Bello (Baylor/East Tennesse St), Ike Nwamu (Mercer/UNLV), Dwon Clifton (Clemson/UNCG), and Quicney Miller (Baylor/NBA) having graduated from the school. This year’s team may not have that type of star power, however it does possess some talent. 6’3” Senior Marshall Lange is one of the best players in the state that no one is talking about. The rest of the roster is young, but look for Lange to make a lot of exciting plays.

Player to Watch
6’3” Senior Marshall Lange

Lange transferred over to Westchester last season, coming over from small a small 2A public school Wheatmore High School. There he was a big fish in a small pond, averaging 18 points and 6 assists per game. Lange is a flashy point guard, who has great size and all the sizzle you will want. He is an alum of the prestigious NC Top 80, and is fundamentally sound player, who makes shots from 3 levels. Lange is fun to watch, he will make you drop your jaw with a few outstanding mix tape type plays, but he does it within the flow of the offense. He is a sure fire D1 kid, while he may not pass the look test, he far surpasses the play test.

Match Ups to Watch
Kobe Langley Vs Wendell Moore

Both players are ranked in the Top 25 players in the nation. Moore is more of a facilitator and Langley more of a scorer. Both players have won 3 straight AAU national championships. Both players are explosive athletes, and both players have a chance to lead their respective varsity teams in scoring this year. Both are going to be recruited at the highest level, and are part of the fully loaded 2019 class, that has a chance to track as the best in North Carolina history.

Marshall Lange Vs Kam Langley
Both players are flying far under the radar. Lange is a big point guard that has the ball on a string and carries the wow factor wherever he goes. Langley led his team in scoring and assists last year as a sophomore. Both players are fundamentally sound, as good plays come easy to them. Langley carries 2 D1 offers, while he should see that number continue to raise. Lange didn’t play travel ball this summer, however as he is see D1 offers come his way. This should be a good matchup of point guards, who can fill a stat sheet, and play with that over looked chip on their shoulder.

Cayse Minor Vs Messiah Baptiste
These players are high motor athletes. Both can score at high clips and do well defending the perimeter. Both players played for non-sponsored AAU programs, and had great summers. Both players are able to score at 3 levels. Both players are seniors who are playing for scholarships. Look for big years from both of these guys, and each will get college offers along the way.
