The latest update of the 2023 rankings in the state has arrived. Take a look at Part II of some of the stock risers in the class.
– 6’2 Guard – Winston-Salem Christian
Fitzgibbons moves from No. 48 in the previous rankings to No. 24 He’s another prospect with Winston-Salem Christian National squad to keep eyes on this season. He’s a high IQ guard that plays with a ton of energy with some sneaky bounce in his skillset. He can finish around the rim and in traffic and make things happen without the ball in his hands as a rebounder and shooter. He uses his length and quickness to be a pest defensively as well. He continues to impress in the 336 area.
– 6’3 Shooting Guard – Concord Academy
van Bibber lurked around the Top 80 in the last rankings update at 84 and now finds himself at No. 30 and committed to Winthrop following a productive summer on the grassroots scene with Team Curry. He shook the notion that he was just a shooter, showing off his ability to finish around the rim and move without the ball to find others in space as well. His best basketball is certainly ahead of him given his continued development with a loaded Concord Academy squad.
– 6’7 Forward – Piedmont Classical School
Barnes climbs from the No. 55 spot into the No. 35 spot as he continues to show off his development as a dual-forward threat on the floor. He’s a strong-framed prospect with a knack for operating in the post but isn’t afraid to stretch the floor with his ability to create on the perimeter. Colleges of all levels would be wise to take a look at him in 2022-23 given his ability to play with a ton of energy on both ends.
– 6’5 Guard/Wing – United Faith Christian Academy
Bates moves from No. 58 in the past rankings into the No. 39 spot in the latest update as a name to watch at United Faith Christian Academy in 2022-23. He’s another 2023 prospect that saw his stock rise a bit on the recruiting scene with a few mid-major programs before committing to Fordham this past fall. He’s another prospect in the class that’s fought off the “just a shooter” label with his ability to attack the rim and finish with authority and defend at the rim. He’s another prospect with his best basketball days ahead of him in this class.
– 6’4 Guard/Wing – Providence Day School
Horton continues to move in the 2023 rankings to show his growth in the class. He moves from No. 67 in the past rankings into the 44th spot in the latest update given his improvements as a spot-up shooter and attacker off the bounce this past summer. He’s due for a productive senior season with Providence Day School in 2022-23 since already committing to the UTEP Miners this past September.
