Our North Carolina Fall Preview camp is in the books and our staff of evaluators and coaches have gone through their notes of every player in the camp. Every. Single. One. Today we look closer at Team 6 from camp.
Kalib Baker, Mallard Creek, 5-10, G, 2020: Knocked down some tough baskets throughout the day. Thought he was really good at getting to the basket off the dribble and showed he can knock down shots from the mid-range out to the three-point line.
John Anythony Baker, Cox Mil, 6-2, SG, 2021: Another prospect out of Cox Mill, Baker gave a lot of effort on the defensive side of the ball and guarded physically. The 6-foot-2 guard plays vertically and had success with his shooting from the outside.
Jaylan Bowen, Millbrook, 5-9, PG, 2022: More than once Bowen made shots from the outside. Getting to the rim is a big part of his game and breaking down defenders is what makes his game go. His speed in the open floor was impressive along with his ability to make the long pass in transition.
Mike Dudley, United Faith, 6-4, SG, 2021: One of the most athletic players at the NC Preview. He is an attacker first and foremost. He loves to get the crowd involved with some high-flying dunks and has a really good basketball frame.
Zion Dixon, Glenn, 5-9, PG, 2022: Vocal guard that can get into the paint and was impressive to our staff with his shooting ability. Dixon is a strong defender coming up with a good number of steals that led to easy buckets for his teammates.
Kaleb Hedgepeth, Heritage, 6-4, SG, 2022: Big sized guard that moves well and is hard to stop when he gets moving. Has goof footwork and plays a form of bully ball against opponents not as big as he is. Hedgepeth is a good rebounder and pushes the ball on the break off of rebounds.
Justin Morton, Sun Valley, 6-0, CG, 2020: Solid guard on both sides of the ball. Morton defended well and on offense he stays in attack mode. On several instances he was hard to stay in front of with his quick first-step and ability to attack the paint.
Isaiah Tate, Kings Mountain, 5-11, PG, 2022: Kings Mountain Head Coach Grayson Peirce has had his share of college bound guards over the past five seasons and Tate may be the next one in line. The 2022 prospect got to the rim with ease, scored in traffic, showed solid court vision and a good shot. One part of his arsenal was dynamic floater that he used to score against bigger defenders.
