Liberty Heights Athletic Institute led by Head Coach Mike Wright will look to compete on a national level schedule yet again. They play in numerous major national events including a handful of Phenom Hoops High School events this upcoming season. Be sure to catch this loaded roster The Carmel Christian Tip-Off, Phenom National Showcase, Phenom Gate City Classic, Hoops and Dreams, Battle At The Rock, Hartsville Invitational, and The Military Prep Classic.
6’6 2020 Kahari Rogers
Kahari is a smooth perimeter scorer that will be a go to option for this upcoming season. He’s shown flashes of being an elite shooter from beyond the arc and is definitely known for that aspect of his game. The side of Rogers that will be shown this year is his ability to attack off the bounce and show that newfound pop in his game. He’s excellent with the one dribble pull-up, can shoot that shot from beyond the arc or in the mid-range. He’ll be relied on in the playmaking department as well so it should be a great challenge to see how he can fill that role for this team. He has a chance to see his recruitment take a jump if he gets the started off the right way. Hofstra and NC A&T are his offers at the moment and that list should continue to grow as dominos continue to fall and Rogers shows that he’s taken the next step in his play.
6’5 2020 Kamryn Edwards
Edwards is one of the more under appreciated kids in North Carolina and he’s taken considerable steps in his development that a lot of people haven’t seen yet. He went from being a below than average athlete to a more than capable one, putting in the effort to make himself a more well rounded player. He’s always been a strong shooter, but now his confidence is at an all-time high, every shot he takes he thinks is falling and it’s easy to tell when he lets it fly. Playing on the EYBL with CP3 was really integral to his development. It’s all culminating for a big senior season where Edwards will be relied on heavily if this team wants to have the year they’re hoping for. Edwards appears to be up for the task and coaches should be excited to watch.
6’8 2020 Tay Williams
It’s safe to say that Williams is the best long term prospect of the bunch. At 6’8 he possesses a unique blend of athleticism, ball skills, shooting touch, and motor. He can be used as both the screener and the ball handler in the pick and roll, making him one of the more versatile offensive weapons in North Carolina’s 2020 class. As he continues to fine tune his skillset and add strength, Williams could end up being a legitimate diamond in the rough type of prospect. He’s someone that should command the attention of college coaches as he could be an impact late addition in the 2020 recruiting class.
6’9 2020 Jamal Davis
Davis is another really intriguing front-court piece on this Liberty Heights roster. He’s a great threat in the pick and pop, showing he can be a knockdown shooter off the catch while also possessing excellent lateral mobility on the defensive end. He can switch and defend smaller guys, while also being capable of anchoring the defense with his shot blocking and rebounding. He epitomizes what LM-MM+ coaches are looking for in a modern 4-man, with a world of upside to continue getting better. Another prospect D1 coaches should be coming to watch.
6’7 2020 Dominique Davis
Davis is the most powerful force on this roster. At 6’7 240 lbs he is incredibly explosive and is a threat to rip the rim off every time he goes up for a dunk. He’s a strong rebounder for his size due to that athleticism and strength to go with excellent footwork on the low block. He’s a capable shooter from outside, but he loves to play around the basket. As Davis continues to gel with this group, he should only continue and continue to look better as a prospect. Definitely worthy of D1 attention, and is just the kind of guy you love to have on your roster.
6’5 2020 Trevaughn Booker
Booker will play a really important role for this Liberty Heights roster, he’s one of their more steady play maker and does a really nice job making good decisions in the half-court. He’s not an incredibly athletic player but does an incredible job playing a productive brand of basketball by always being in the right place at the right time. He’s a really nice spot-up threat from beyond the arc, and is really a plug and play guy at a variety of positions. He’ll be asked to do an abundance of things for this team and he appears to be the man for the job.
6’0 2020 Antonee Abraham
Abraham is exactly what you’re looking for in a glue guy. He defends the point of attack with pride, runs the offense, and makes open shots. He’s got incredible intangibles, he knows his role, and he thrives in it. Abraham should garner some attention from scholarship coaches due to what he brings to a team on and off the floor. A great teammate and a versatile backcourt piece.
6’8 2020 Kevin Boykin
Okoye is another scholarship level prospect that has a lot of upside. He’s a super long forward that can protect the rim and act as a great team defender due to his mobility and ability to cause problems with his length. He’s added a considerable amount of strength since this time last year and as he continues to do that he should see his recruitment take another step.
6’3 2020 Marshon Merriel
Merriel is another key glue guy on this roster due to his shooting touch, toughness, and physical strength. He’s a strong bodied wing guard that has some pop in his game and should do a great job coming in, providing energy, and knocking down shots. He’s another kid that should garner looks from scholarship coaches and prove he’s a bonafide next level prospect in the process.
6’5 2020 Devin Gordon
Gordon wasn’t at practice but Coach Wright said low majors are involved with his recruitment. He’s coming off a knee injury and should be at practice in the near future.
6’4 2020 Camrone Cherry
Cherry wasn’t in practice either. He is a high ranking player out of the state of Georgia.
