South Carolina Top 80
Event Breakouts (Part 2)
By Jamie Shaw

5’7” 2019 Russell Jones
Westwood HS (Blythewood)

Jones is a winner. He steps onto the floor with the type of personality that players follow. He is a grinder and carries a non-stop motor. Jones’ team went 3-0 on the day, he defends for 94’, he has great court vision and doesn’t turn the ball over. Jones was voted unanimously as the camp’s Mr. Playmaker award winner.

6’8” 2019 Khydarius Smith
Nation Ford HS (Fort Mill)

Smith has always had tools, his ability is now growing into his frame. Smith measured a 6’10” wing span to go along with a 34” vertical leap. The lefty has a very quick first step to get downhill and he has explosion when at the rim. It seems the light is coming on for Smith as he was very aggressive throughout this camp, claiming a Hampton offer currently that list should rapidly expand.

6’8” 2020 PJ Hall
Dorman HS (Moore)

Hall has all of the upside in the world. Already polished on the block, he carries touch and footwork. This event he showed the ability to step out and knock down the 3-pointer off the catch and has great timing on defense. Hall measured a 7’ wing span and a 33” standing vertical, as a 15 year old, standing 6’8” with a size 17 shoe, look for more growth to be had. But Now!

6’4” 2019 Allen Williamson
Wilson HS (Florence)

Williamson already carries a SC State offer, but he showed this may just be the tip of the iceburg. Williamson has good size and nice length, however it was his aggressiveness really stood out. Williamson has always been able to shoot, however he was attacking the rim and finishing around the basket. It appears the corner has been turned.
