Carolina Challenge: 2013

CARY, N.C. -- Dave Telep's Carolina Challenge showcased a number of underclassman this past weekend. Kennedy Meeks was one of the guys that stood out the most.

Kennedy Meeks, PF, West Charlotte – Already standing 6-foot-7, 220-pounds, Meeks is a huge kid with some ability. He's got a great set of mitts that catch everything thrown to him and he's developed a great touch on his shot. To go with the right jump hook we saw him drop in, he also showed he could face up defenders for mid-range jump shots.

Allerik Freeman, SG, United Faith – At first look we loved Freeman's raw ability. He's a 6-foot-3 guard with a good amount of athleticism. Despite getting a bit wild at times, we were impressed with his ability to score. He's got a nice pull-up jump shot and was efficient in transition.

Greg McClinton, SF, Winston-Salem Prep – Arguably the most talented freshman in attendance, McClinton, a 6-foot-6 small forward, had his moments at the Challenge. We were especially excited about his size, versatility and athletic ability. He used his athleticism to climb for a nasty tip dunk, but he also showed a mid-range pull-up and a floater.

Anton Gill, SG, Ravenscroft – This 6-foot-2, 165-pound southpaw showed off an ability to score at the Carolina Challenge. He's a lengthy two-guard that loved pulling up from mid-range, but also showed he could finish in transition. Gill will be one to watch as he gets stronger and his game continues to develop.

Tyrek Coger, C, Upper Room – Still growing, Coger appears a full two inches taller than when we saw him at the end of the summer. He's got a wide frame, good hands and already has developed some moves inside. He knocked in a left jump hook, as well as a mid-range jumper from 12-feet.

Isaiah Hicks, of Oxford (N.C.) Webb, is an active, long and lanky power forward. He needs to add strength, but he's a pretty good-looking talent. Quinton Ray had his moments as well. The 6-foot guard was good in transition and showed off a nice floater.
