Hope we are still looking at the local talent. We have a few teams in the Final 4 of the state playoffs that are right on our doorstep
The only local men's teams left are Smith and Eastern Guilford.
E. Guilford SHOULD have beaten Cox Mill in the 3A State Championships. But 6-3 star player Jaylen Alston went 11 of 24 from the FT line in a 70-66 loss. E. Guilford is motivated and looks really good as an team again. Alston signed with Gardner-Webb after originally verbally committing to SCSU. While his shooting has improved, he plays the 4... so the jury is still out on whether he can be an effective 2 at D1 level.
Cox has 6-6 Top 50 recruit Wendell Moore, Jr. and 6-7 UNC G signnee Rechon Black. The Smith/Cox Mill 3A semifinal game at 6 pm Saturday in Winston will be an instant classic.
Jamarcus Burton is a 6-5 G prospect from Charlotte Independence with a number of mid-major offers. They will play Rocky Road in the 4A semifinal at 4 pm.
Not a lot of bigs coming out of NC this year. But like every year... always some talent coming out of NC and the Triad.
