Wilmington, NC – The 5th annual Big Shots Wilmington NC Top 100 brings top talent throughout the Port City of Wilmington and surrounding regions. Past MVP’s consisted of Ricky Council II (Providence/UMBC), Brandon Childress (Wake Forest), Matt Elmore (UNCW), Jarren McCallister (Virginia Tech), Bryce Schneider (Richmond, El Ellis & many other college level players over the years. This year’s event was no different as many of NC’s top players and biggest sleepers took the court. NBA G-League Texas Legends head coach Bob McKinnon was the guest speaker at the event. Let’s take a look at the top 2020 performers and MVP:

Wesley Case 2020 5’10 PG Eastern Wayne (NC) / Garner Road |
One of NC’s most electric guards in 2020. There’s some players that play a relentless, fearless game and Wes Case is one of them. Named 2020 Co-MVP at Big Shots Wilmington NC Top 100 averaged 18 ppg and put on a show. At 5’10 the high flying lefty is always looking to posterize you at the rim any chance he gets. He is an extremely springy, swing guard that attacks you as hard as any combo guard in the class. But if he can’t get there the pure lefty stroke comes out where he can drain shots from nearly 30 feet with confidence. Aside from knocking down shots from every level he is a standout passer and lets his motor open up plays for him and teammates. Known for what he does off the ball I enjoyed seeing his ability to play the point guard spot throwing countless dimes with a legit high basketball IQ and court vision . He turns heads when he’s on the floor. Averaged 12 ppg at Big Shots Raleigh NC Top 100 named to the 2020 All Star team. Outstanding character on and off the court. Big Shots NC 2020 Top 10. Wilmington Top 100 Dunk Contest Co-Champion. Twitter: Case_darin

Ricky Council IV 2020 6’4 SG Northern Durham (NC) / Flight 22 |
One of NC’s top shooting guards in 2020 class. Ricky Council IV is a bucket getter that scores in variety and puts up big numbers. The BIG SHOTS Wilmington NC TOP 100 2020 Co-MVP scored 26 points in game 1, averaged 19 ppg for the camp, High major knockdown 6’4 shooter who will be well known nationally very soon like his oldest brother Ricky II who ended up at Providence. Smooth floor game with a pure stroke and ability score off the bounce or catch. High riser at the rim with a fluid floor game. Uses his length defensively, Big guard now and not done growing. Love his game, High academic student athlete with a GPA of 3.7. BIG SHOTS NC 2020 Top 10 prospect.

Nolan Dorsey 2020 6’3 PG Millbrook (NC) / Triangle Flight |
What I’m come to know over the years the Dorsey brothers are high basketball IQ knockdown shooters that are fun to watch. Like his brother older Patrick (D1 prospect shooter, was NC’s top 2017 shooter now at Fork Union) did in Big Shots, Nolan is following suit as a scoring combo that can hit shots from all 3-levels especially from 3. At 6’3 he plays the PG spot with creativity and flare making the right pass and play in the break and half court. Finishes at the rim using his length over smaller guards. Scored 19 points in game 1 average 14 ppg at Big Shots Wilmington NC Top 100 earning 2020 All Star honors. Big Shots NC 2020 Top 40 prospect

DeMarcus Mclaurin 2020 6’4 PF Laney (NC) / Flight 22 |
Production is there every time out for DeMarcus Mclaurin as he was named an all star once again in Wilmington NC Top 100. Scored 18 points in game 1 averaged 15 ppg for the camp. After an All Star showing at Southeast Top 100 Paul Biancardi, DeMarcus continued that play earning 2020 MVP at Big Shots MB Top 100 Paul Biancardi averaging 19 ppg. Going head to head vs. Providence commit Jimmy Nichols, McLaurin didn’t back down shooting the 3 and playing inside-out scoring 22 points in the matchup. From a prospect to a player, DeMarcus is a 6’4 wing that I’ve always been high on his motor and athleticism now mixed with an improved skillset he is consistently knocking down jumpers at a high rate off the catch or dribble and is a matchup problem. He was a breakout player at Big Shots Southeast Top 100 Paul Biancardi where he averaged 22 ppg. I’ve seen him get better and better every time out. He is a college prospect that strives in a tempo setting and has division 1 upside. Productive as a freshman at Laney, look for him to have a big sophomore season. BIG SHOTS NC 2020 Top 25.

A 6’5 forward with a 6’10 wingspan and good genes as a coach’s/player’s son (dad Carl Parker played at William & Mary), Jadyn is improving, producing and growing at a rapid rate that only leads to a bright future. He has that Brandon Ingram like frame with a skill set to put it on the deck and comfortable shooting 15′ and out. Active on the offensive glass and effective with post moves and face up game.
