Fortunately for all involved, Hannibal and James will be going head to head in this matchup. Hannibal carries an Oklahoma State offer and he sits atop the recruiting boards of the likes of South Carolina, Clemson, Kansas State and others. Hannibal is a ball of explosive energy, total excitement!
5’11” junior Mikey Dukes
First Baptist of Charleston
While James is the #1 point guard in South Carolina’s junior class and Hannibal is #2, it is actually Mikey Dukes who is the #3 point guard in that class. Dukes is also the 7th ranked player overall in the class. Dukes is also a highly ranked running back with numerous Power 5 offers. Dukes heart lies in basketball, and he is so good. His toughness exudes on both ends, he is a rugged defender and a complete offensive thread.
6’3” senior Marque Maultsby
What an unbelievably exciting batch of point guards in this event. Maultsby is a terror on the ball defender, widely thought of as the best on the ball defender in North Carolina. He has long arms and is incredibly quick twitch and explosive. Maultsby was offered a walk-on position at UNC last week and has had numerous mid major schools start the process with him. He is a winner and a leader and also a 1200 SAT student. Expect more offers to come.
