Three WNC's Must See Prospects Part I
Here are the must see prospects in Western North Carolina this season.
Amore Connelly, Freedom High School - The high-flying 6-foot-3 guard for Freedom High School is one of the best playmakers in the area and is being recruited by mid-major programs. He has the athletic explosion that college coaches want. He is a threat to score from all spots on the floor and is hoping to help Freedom get further than they did last season in the state playoffs.
Keenan Wilkins, Christ School - With a record of 72 wins and 9 losses in his high school career, split between Christ School and Hendersonville High School. The senior guard can score with the best of them that this state has to offer and continues to surprise everyone. His size is what has scared most coaches off but he is now grown to right at 5-foot-10 and I have been watching basketball for a long time and if you can dominate at the highest level of high school basketball in your state, it translates over to the next level more often than not.
Ian Bailey, Asheville Christian Academy - The sophomore guard had all of the coaches talking during the June live period. Bailey is a guy that passes the future college prospect eye test and he has the game to back it up. The 6-foot-3 Bailey is the younger brother of 2024 guard Brendan Bailey and will make a formidable punch for Andy Ray's squad this season over in Swannanoa.
