The 2022 class rankings in North Carolina are almost due for an update. With that being said, here’s a look at the Top 10 point guard prospects in the class.
Jaden Bradley is one of the most highly-rated point guard prospects in the 2022 class. He’s got a smooth floor game and utilizes a high IQ to score on all three levels. He was named to the MaxPreps Freshman All-American team for his play and plays with BMaze Elite on the AAU circuit. As a highly regarded name already, he’s got offers from Boston College, Arizona State, Seton Hall, Texas A&M, Maryland, Texas Tech and more.
Jalen Hood-Schifino is another highly-regarded prospect out of the state of North Carolina. Hood-Schifino played up this past summer on the AAU circuit, further elevating his status in the class as a sharpshooter and distributor.
He posted 13.0 points, 4.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game as a freshman this past season at Northside Christian Academy and will move over to Combine Academy with newly appointed head coach and former UNC Tar Heel Jeff McInnis. He already holds offers from Pittsburgh, Clemson, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Florida and South Florida.
Greensboro Day shouldn’t have any issues in their backcourt this upcoming season with Jaydon Young, Cam Hayes, Carson Mccorkle and Brock Williams in their rotation. Young brings his ability to create off the dribble, distribute and defend.
He’s got nice size and strength which allows him to run the floor extremely hard and create opportunities for others. Young is a solid scorer on all three levels and due to make waves in this class, especially this season.
Quava Propst is a lightning-quick point guard that can get to the rim and score and knock it down from deep. He had a strong summer on the AAU circuit with the EA Preps All-Stars, allowing him to showcase his “winner’s mentality.” Propst is relentless on both ends and a competitor. He’s a point guard that looks to score first but can distribute just as well. He’ll be one to watch at Cox Mill this season.
Lincoln Charter Academy will be a school to keep an eye on out of Winston-Salem this season and they’ll be led by point guard Anthony Breland. Breland is crafty off the dribble and can get to his spots and score at-will. He’s got nice size at 6-foot-1 which allows him to get to the rim but his midrange is his most deadly asset. He’s a prospect with an opportunity to lead a solid team in 2019-20.
Jamori McDougald is another sharpshooting point guard to keep an eye on in North Carolina’s 2022 class. He’s solid with the ball in his hands at creating shots for himself and others on the hardwood. He’s got a fearless mentality with the ball in his hands and a smooth floor game to go with it which allows him to score on all three levels. He’s a prospect due to draw some attention from colleges.
Cam Oates is quite the speedy point guard prospect at Trinity Christian. He has the ability to get up and down the floor with a quickness, which allows for him to showcase his abilities as a slasher and top-notch defender. He does well to control the game with the ball in his hands and as a lefty, he’s a tough cover. He’s a prospect with a very bright future on the hardwood.
Jacob Newman is an emerging point guard prospect at Myers Park with his ability as a floor general. Newman started on the varsity squad for Myers Park as a freshman, now he’s set to build on that in 2019-20. He didn’t fill it up per se, but on the AAU circuit, he’s shown what he can do outside of distributing with a knack for getting to the rim and finishing through traffic.
Durham Academy has 2022 prospect M.J. Rice on their squad, but he’s not the only potential stud. Nik Graves is another prospect to keep eyes on with his gamer mentality. He locks up on defense and can fill it up from all three levels on offense. He stretches the defense with his unlimited range and has a high IQ for playmaking.
Jordan Marsh is becoming quite the prospect at Hickory Ridge. He’s a crafty finisher at the rim that uses his body well to create in the paint and a relentless defender. When he’s not driving, he’s creating off the perimeter with his ability to shoot the 3-ball. As he learns to control tempo of the game with his speed, keep a close watch on this prospect as he’s set to do big things.
