5. 6’2 2020 Creighton Lebo: Greenfield School

Lebo was sensational for Greenfield School in their win over Grace Christian (Sanford) displaying excellent touch from three point range, a high IQ, and excellent leadership abilities.  Greenfield was playing shorthanded without Djimon Bailey (Hip) and Jacari Outlaw (Death In Family) but Lebo was able to rally the troops and lead the way in the hard fought battle.  He’s comfortable at either guard spot and you can tell he’s a coaches son in the way he plays.  Always composed, under control, and ready to roll.  Regional D1s should make it a priority to watch Lebo this season, he’s certainly an asset to any team.

 

 

4. 5’10 2019 Kojack Thompson: Christ School

Thompson is an absolute cold blooded killer that should have scholarship coaches watching his every move as we get into the thick of the High School season.  He was flat out uncontainable throughout the contest against Greensboro Day, shooting 3s, banking in runners, and just fighting until the bitter end for his Christ School squad playing without two of their top players and their head coach.  He continues to impress more and more in every viewing, and is clearly playing with loads of confidence as he looks to bounce back against Carmel Christian later today.

 

 

3. 6’3 2022 Jaden Bradley: Cannon School

Bradley showed why he gets the accolades that he does in his performance in a tough loss against Trinity of Raleigh.  He showed his dynamic scoring ability while getting downhill, and pulling up in the mid-range.  He exhibited excellent vision throughout the contest, and showed why they call him silk as he’s a smooth operator with the ball in his hands.  Expect his profile to grow and grow as he shines over the course of the next four years in the #HoopState.

 

 

2. 6’8 2019 Nick Evtimov: Greensboro Day School

Evtimov was incredible last night in every way, showcasing his progression as a basketball player and an athlete from the tip till the final buzzer.  He has vastly improved on the block with his footwork, body control, and touch.  He’s now much more comfortable handling the ball in the open court, and as a passer out of the post when the help collapses.  After the early signing period look for Evtimov to see a MAJOR boost in his recruitment as Mid to High Majors look to fill their classes.

 

 

1. 6’11 2020 Isaiah Todd: Trinity Academy of Raleigh

The Unicorn at Trinity of Raleigh is looking to stake his claim as the best prospect in High School basketball and on Friday Night he did an excellent job.  He flirted with a triple double, dominating both ends of the court, and he flat out took the game over in the fourth quarter, finishing with a wild exclamation point in his last dunk of the game.  Being 6’11 with the ability to initiate offense, knock down deep jumpers, and consistently make the right play makes him the #1 guy in 2020 in my opinion.  Look for Todd to back that up throughout the season for Trinity of Raleigh.
