The Carolina Corner with @JustinByerly
Jackson Threadgill commits, Shakeel Moore breaks down visit, Belton schedules visit, Chick-Fil-A announces schedule and more.
Jackson Threadgill Staying Home
One of the top guards in the region, Jackson Threadgill out of Davidson (NC) Day announced last night that he will be playing his college basketball at Charlotte. His recruitment took quite the turn in July playing with PSB Elite as Tom Crean and Georgia came on hard. Threadgill had a final three of Georgia, Wofford and Charlotte and all signs pointed to the SEC school as the future landing spot for the skilled shooter.
Charlotte and their staff had been on Threadgill the longest and the chance to play at home was the key factors for him in choosing the 49ers.
“The consistency Coach (Ron) Sanchez and Coach Vic (Sfera) had throughout this process played a big part. Coach Vic has been recruiting me since I was a freshman and he was at Liberty. I built a great relationship with the staff. I know that I am going to thrive there. The plan that Coach Sanchez has for Charlotte is something I want to be apart. The system they run and the guys that coach Sanchez has coached, like Klay Thompson and Joe Harris, really fits me and I find myself being most successful,” Threadgill said.
Threadgill can come in and be a significant contributor from his first days on campus with his shooting ability and his understanding of the game.
Shakeel Moore Decision Coming Soon
HoopSeenNC’s #4 ranked Shakeel Moore took a visit to Providence over the weekend and had nothing but high praise for the Rhode Island school. “Campus was beyond beautiful! Most wonderful staff I’ve ever been around.”
2020-point guard Cam Hayes announced this week his commitment to NC State in the same class, all but ruling out Moore to The Wolfpack who had a visit scheduled for this weekend but has now canceled that trip.
Wichita State, Georgetown, Ole Miss and Depaul have been in to workouts this week at Moravian Prep to see the electric guard.
Belton Taking Official Visit This Weekend
Moravian Prep 6-foot-9 forward Javarzia Belton has scheduled an official visit to The College of Charleston for this weekend. Belton had a strong travel season with Team Loaded NC and is one of the most physically gifted players in the region.
He holds offers from Rhode Island, IUPUI, Texas A&M, St. Bonaventure, La Salle, Drexel, Hofstra, Elon, Wake Forest, Wichita State, UMBC, College of Charleston, UNLV and South Carolina State.
