Syracuse, NY (Future150) -- When talking about basketball prospects at any level, 'upside' is a very popular word. Coaches, media and fans alike love the thought of how much bigger and better a player can become down the line. It drives the basketball culture, and for good reason. When referencing 2019 small forward Noreon Williams, the 'upside' tag is very accurate.
The Syracuse Academy of Science (NY) product is not only young for his grade, but everything about his frame suggests that there is significant growth left in the tank. A Future150 Pennsylvania Camp All-Star selection, he came to camp as a 6'5", 190-pound baby-faced 14 year old. Six months later, and he's already sprouted to 6'6" and in the middle of an impressive sophomore season.
Averaging nearly 14 points, six rebounds, four assists and three blocks per game, the strong wing prospect is a skilled shooter who can slash to the rim using his powerful frame to his advantage.
"I'm really good at getting to the basket and getting fouled," he told Future150.
The cousin of former North Carolina and NBA star Jerry Stackhouse, basketball is in the blood of the Syracuse prospect.
"I want to win sectionals and a state championship this year. I also want to make 1st Team All-CNY," he said in reference to his goals this season.
As he continues to grow and hone his skills, it's easy to imagine him becoming one of latest young stars do dominate at the high school level in Syracuse.
As far as AAU season goes, he's currently weighing his options, but expect him to make serious noise for whatever team he ultimately chooses.
