The HoopSeen Tip-Off was the first event of the year for independent travel programs to showcase their talents on our stage at Suwanee Sports Academy just outside of Atlanta last March. We take a deep dive into the North Carolina and South Carolina standouts article and see where those prospects’ recruitment is at.
The Travelers Rest (SC) High School standout has taken unofficial visits to Queens, Anderson, Lincoln-Memorial and North Georgia. The 6-foot-5 sharpshooter also went to elite camps at Mars Hill University and Winthrop University. He currently holds offers from Coker and North Greenville. Roach told HoopSeen that he is going to wait to commit and sign until late in the season or after.
The Augusta, Georgia bred Briscoe has been hearing from Queens University in Charlotte and has been in contact with North Carolina A&T recently. One of top-scorers for David Bentley's Upward Stars-White team, Briscoe missed some time late in the year with an injury.
Reggie Walton, 5-8, PG, Team Trezz - One of the quickest players we saw on the HoopSeen stage this year was Walton. His play over the travel season concluded with a commitment to Mars Hill University.
At first take here is what our staff thought about Grady, the first time seeing him with his travel team at our HoopSeen Tip-Off.
“The long and athletic Grady is a playmaker. He scored from a variety of plays on the court. He can finish plays above the rim and is explosive from the wing and in transition”- Justin Byerly
He recently took a visit to Limestone College and has been hearing from Charleston Southern and East Carolina University came to a workout he tells HoopSeen.
Talk about a guy that really caught my eye the first time I saw him, Parsons did that. Anytime I hear the phrase “from Kinston High School,” I have to take a look. He was the definition of what it means to play for that program. Skilled, doesn’t turn the ball over and can just flat out play. His recruitment is steady with an official visit to Wingate University and he is scheduled to go to Mount Olive in the coming weeks.
Division One programs started getting involved with the Concord (NC) First Assembly forward in June with UNC-Asheville offering followed by Winthrop, Presbyterian and then Youngstown State in early September where he took an official visit and committed.
