Brandon’s Big Time Risers: SC Top 80 (Part 1)

The SC Top 80 Camp was one for the books, 80 of the top prospects in all of South Carolina under one roof!

Some prospects stood out among others in the group so we’ll examine five big time risers who have helped their recruiting stock, and should be in for big seasons this year.

No. 6 Jalen Breazeale, ’21, (Greenville Tech, Greenville, SC)

Breazeale is a promising young floor general at this stage, his floor vision and passing ability are big strengths.

Through three contests Breazeale saw two starts and made the most of the opportunities. Jalen really impressed with his leadership and poised demeanor on the floor, he fought through a couple early turnovers and lead one of the toughest offenses in camp.

“Jalen is a pure leader and will never take a play off, if needed he can get you a quick steal or force a turnover.” said Coach Nick

This will be one to watch for in the future, Breazeale will be one of the top point guards in the state for the 2020 cycle.

No. 67 Foster Bridges, 6’4, ’18, (Landrum, Inman, SC)

Bridges is a high motor wing with big time scoring ability, if he gets hot from deep it will be a long night for opponents.

In game two Bridges got his first start and scorched the nets for a cold 28 pts, he knocked down six threes during the effort. Foster looked confident taking his man off the dribble as well as finishing in transition. Bridges was effective shooting off the dribble, his midrange game is a big strength at this stage.

Our staff was so impressed with Bridges play he earned the SC Top 80 All First team. Bridges will be a gem of a pickup for some division one coach whenever he decides on a program.

No. 78 Allen Williamson, 6’4, ’19, (Wilson, Florence, SC)

Williamson is a natural born scorer he can flat out get buckets from anywhere on the floor.

At 6’4 Williamson has a long frame that allows him to slash through traffic and finish at the cup. Throughout camp Allen attacked the lane at will, when defenders played off Williamson showed big time range from deep. Williamson has a nice handle on the ball and showed sharp awareness when he distributed the rock.

Williamson should be in store for a breakout junior year for Wilson High, “ I know I’ll have a little bit more juice in my cup this year.” Williamson said. Wilson returns a lot of talent and Williamson could be the best of the bunch.

No. 91 Daniel Finney, 6’5, ’19, (AC Flora, Columbia, SC)

Finney is the definition of a highflyer and he really proved to be in elite company athletically.

On multiple occasions it seemed Finney was going to break the rim clean off. In game two during a big matchup with team five led by coach Jeff Bendel Finney took off and completely put his defender on a poster, the one handed banger sent the entire gym into a mad frenzy. From deep Finney was consistent he hit a pair of corner threes and showed nice touch from mid range. What stood out defensively was Finney’s footwork and quick lateral movements.

Finney runs the floor well and never gets caught standing in one spot. As far as athletic wing prospects go Finney is one of the best available in SC.

No. 115 6’9, Ryan Carfley, ’18 (Wilson, Marion, SC)

Carfley will be a nice stretch four option at the collegiate level, he’s a new age finesse big who excels inside and out.

This guy proved to be a serious weapon Cafley opens the floor for guards to operate, his shooting ability forces rim protectors to shy away from the paint. Cafley is efficient in pick- N- pop situations, he also posses a nice back to the basket game down low. Cafley utilizes polished footwork and a bevy of ball fakes to get defenders off balance for easy finishes.

At 6’9 Carfley runs the floor extremely well in transition and he understands how to establish positioning on the block. Carfley has all the tools to succeed at the collegiate level.
