Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- With the AAU season almost upon us, it's time to start examining and updating national and state rankings. North Carolina never seems to fail to put out high-major talent year in and year out. The 2019 class definitely seems poised to continue that trend. Who are the current top ten prospects in the Tar Heel State? Find out below!
1.| Wendell Moore, G/F Cox Mill High School: Moore continues his dominance as one of the top 2019 prospects in the nation. The 6'6" wing forward is a tough matchup to plan against and has made big improvements on the defensive end and with his long range jumper. He holds offers from the likes of Florida, North Carolina, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest among others. He has seen Duke and Kentucky expressing interest in him for quite some time now, so don't be shocked if he picks up one or both of those offers before the AAU season comes to a close.
2.| Joey Baker, 6'9" SF, Trinity Christian School: Ever since Baker went on a tear this summer on the Under Armour Circuit with Team Felton, he has not slowed down. Holding offers from the likes of Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest among others, Baker is without a doubt a high- major plus prospect and will probably start picking up blue blood offers sooner rather than later.
3.| Josh Nickelberry, 6'5" SG, Trinity Christian School: One of the best, if not the best, scorers in the Mid-Atlantic region, Nickelberry has had a huge sophomore season at Trinity Christian and continues to get better and better. With offers from Baylor, North Carolina, and VCU among others on the table, Nickelberry will be another piece to a star-studded 2019 class coming out of North Carolina. Good luck stopping him with his elite size, quickness, and abilities to score from all three levels with ease.
4.| B.J. Mack, 6'7" PF, Charlotte Christian: Mack is already committed to coach Buzz Williams and the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Future150 alumnus sports a fantastic frame that is wide, strong and built for dominating the boards on both ends of the floor. Depending on his development and improvement over the next few years, Mack definitely has a chance to be an immediate impact type player in the ACC.
5.| Rico Williams, 6'8" CF, Kinston High School: Another Future150 alumnus appearing on this list is Wiliams. The Kinston native attended Future150's Atlanta Upperclassmen Camp this past summer and really impressed with his through-the-roof athleticism, and abilities to slash the ball from the perimeter with his size and strength. Williams is still very raw and could possibly work his way up a few more spots on this list over the next year or so.
6.| Imajae Dodd, 6'7" PF, Greene Central High School: Dodd exploded onto the scene and really built up his name this past summer during AAU season. His fantastic length, athleticism, versatility, and elite rebounding abilities makes him an easy sell as a mid-major plus prospect. Dodd already holds offers from Coastal Carolina, Old Dominion, Tulane, and UNC-Charlotte.
7.| Greg Gantt, 6'7" G/F, Trinity Christian School: The third TCS prospect on this list, Gantt has tons of potential with his size and length and ability to score the ball and defend multiple positions. He currently has two offers coming from Grambling State and Hampton. His offer list will probably grow after another year on the Under Armour circuit running with Team Felton.
8.| Patrick Williams, 6'6" G/F, West Charlotte High School: Similar to Gantt, Williams is a lengthy wing that can put the ball in the basket and defend multiple positions well. He is a very tough cover in isolation and one-on-one situations and definitely has a chance to be a go to guy at the next level. Williams holds offers from Dayton, UNC-Greensboro, and Wake Forest, among others.
9.| Keyshaun Langley, 6'1" PG, Southwest Guilford High School: The second Virginia Tech commit on this list, Langley is a great floor general with elite ball-handling abilities and court vision that can also take over the game with his scoring prowess. He will be able to play both guard spots in the ACC, and will develop into a phenomonal player under head coach Buzz Williams. He may struggle at first with his normal size and lack of upper body strength, but make no mistake that this kid is very talented.
10.| Jalyn Withers, 6'8" CF, North Mecklenburg High School: The Charlotte/Mecklenburg area is absolutley loaded with talent and Withers is a big part of that crop. The 6'8" forward is a big time force on the glass with a high motor and knows how to finish strong around the rim and through contact. His development over the next year or so will be fun to watch as he could move a few spots up this list at some point.
