South Carolina Top 80
2021 Standouts
By Jamie Shaw

In just its third year the South Carolina Top 80 has quickly become the state’s premier showcase of talent. Every year the state’s best show up to compete against one another on this major stage.

In this four part series, we are going to go through each class and talk about which prospects stood out…

6’8” Ceasare Edwards
Hartsville HS (Hartsville)

Edwards steps onto the floor with a long and bouncy frame. Standing 6’8” with a 35” standing vertical leap, Edwards best weapon is his jump shot. He has lethal range with a soft and quick release. During this camp he showcased his one and two dribble pull up and the ability to score. The upside is huge here.

6’11” John Butler
Christ Chapel (Greenville)

Think John Henson here. He is long with a slender and athletic frame. Butler showed the ability to put the ball on the floor and get all the way to the rim as well as make the 3 with consistency. He will need to add weight, as is the case with most 14 year olds, but Butler has natural athleticism and high level timing. Expect him to become a blue blood national level type recruit.

6’2” Joshua Beadle
Cardinal Newman (Columbia)

Beadle spent time playing on varsity at Cardinal Newman last season. He has a big reputation surrounding him and he more than lived up to that reputation in this setting. The lefty has an aggressive downhill game. He is athletic and he plays with the utmost confidence with the ball in his hands. Watch this one closely, if he continues on this path he has a major college future.

6’ Tyler Rice
Ridge View (Columbia)

Rice showed the ability to run a team here. He is quick, but it is the pace in which he plays that shows his game is beyond his years. Rice’s brother, Kaiden, stands 6’6” and is a freshman currently at Citadel. Basketball runs in his family, while he is a completely different player from his bother he is on a crash course to be a Division 1 prospect.

6’1” Jacobi Wright
York Prep (Rock Hill)

Wright plays at a level most of his peers do not. He played up in age this entire summer with Team CP3 and his poise and confidence from that experience shows. Wright plays under control at a very fast pace. He shoots it with deep range and makes players better. Start tracking him now.
