They again play a loaded schedule highlighted by big games in the Chick-Fil-A Classic and the Bass Pro Classic as well as play in state top teams.

They are led by 6'10 2020 Josh Hall who has a slew of offers and is predicted by many to be an NC State lead. They will play one of the toughest schedules in the nation. Headlined by events like the Carmel Christian Tip Off and the John Wall Classic are just a few things on there schedule. They will even match up against Word of God which features the top 10 2020 and Michigan verbal commit Isiah Todd.
- Combine Academy former UNC Tarheel alumni Jeff Mcinnis will lead his talented first year team against a grueling schedule. He has a stable of talented guards to carry the load. 6'4 2022 Jalen Hood-Schifino leads the way he is being heavy recruited by many high majors across the country. They have six very talented young players who will be ready to make some noise.

- Quality Education - from what I have been told and the talent I have seen, I expect coach Pitts' squad to shock and stun some teams that they play. They have very good size, but I am looking forward to seeing if they can play the most certainly look the part on paper.
