Prep Hoops just launched its new 2024 Palmetto State Rankings on Monday. A total of 69 players made this latest edition up from the previous 51 players back in early April. Prep Hoops is going to take a look at some of the best tandems, trios and yes a foursome in this set of rankings.
Cameron Scott Cameron Scott 6'6" | SG Lexington | 2024 State #32 Nation SC and Morgan Washington Morgan Washington 6'2" | CG White Knoll | 2024 State SC – Lexington HS
Scott is ranked #1 player in the 2024 Palmetto State and has already received High Major Offers. Washington recently moved into the Lexington HS program from nearby Irmo HS. This duo could really help the Wildcats make the turn in the region for Head Coach Elliott Pope.
Jeremaih McCain Jeremaih McCain 6'3" | CG Lugoff-Elgin | 2024 State SC and Damon Howey Damon Howey 6'0" | CG Lugoff-Elgin | 2024 State SC – Lugoff-Elgin HS
McCain and Howey can be the future of the Demons basketball program after seeing extensive playing time last season under then Head Coach Brenden Marcell. McCain runs with Upward Stars Southeast 2024 while Howey plays with PCH Nightrydas SC. McCain excels in the transition game while Howey has a knack to score the ball.
Camden Durant Camden Durant 6'3" | PF McCormick | 2024 State SC and Daquean Lewis Daquean Lewis 6'3" | PF Calhoun Falls Charter | 2024 State SC – Calhoun Falls Charter
This duo really plays off the grid in the Northwest corner of the state along the Georgia State line. Calhoun Falls Charter is maybe the smallest school in the Palmetto State last I saw at 97 students. Durant plays several sports for the Flashes and isn’t afraid to mix it up down low in the paint.
Ladontae Felton Ladontae Felton 6'2" | PG Aiken | 2024 State SC and Jadan Young Jadan Young 6'2" | SG Aiken | 2024 State SC – Aiken HS
Yes there is another Felton coming up the ranks for the Fighting Hornets and Head Coach Darris Jackson. Felton will team up with sharp shooting guard Jadan Young Jadan Young 6'2" | SG Aiken | 2024 State SC in the Aiken HS backcourt.
Musa Muriithi Musa Muriithi 6'2" | PG Greer Middle College | 2024 State SC and Jack Pfister Jack Pfister 6'5" | PF Greer Middle College | 2024 State SC – Greer Middle College
Musa is a wiry point guard while Pfister can play with his back to the basket for the Blazers. Pfister is a mover-screener while looking to post up. Muriithi is the table-setter for Head Coach Jamar Armstrong team.
RJ Simmons RJ Simmons 6'0" | CG James Island | 2024 State SC , Montreal Jenkins Montreal Jenkins 5'7" | PG James Island | 2024 State SC , Kai Murdock Kai Murdock 6'5" | PF Wando | 2024 State SC and John Templeton John Templeton 6'4" | SF Lucy Beckham | 2024 SC – Cathedral Academy (North Charleston)
Simmons, Jenkins and Murdock helped the Generals and Head Coach Blake Ferguson get to SCISA Class 1A semifinals last season as freshmen. Jenkins a undersized scoring guard led the Generals at 18.1 ppg, Simmons 15.5 ppg and Murdock 8.2 ppg. John Templeton John Templeton 6'4" | SF Lucy Beckham | 2024 SC recently transferred over to the Generals from Oceanside Collegiate for this season.
