North Carolina commit and South Central big man Day’Ron Sharpe continued to make waves across the country and show why he is rising as one of the most exciting players at the preps level right now.

Sharpe, who is 6-foot-10, finished his junior campaign with averages of 15.9 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.2 blocks and 2.4 assists per game. Maybe most importantly for The Daily Reflector’s boys’ player of the year was his 4-A state championship performance of 23 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and three blocked shots — all in front of UNC coach Roy Williams — in a rout of West Charlotte for the 4-A crown.

In a season filled with notoriety and achievements, Sharpe and the Falcons broke into the top-10 national rankings and finished sixth in the USA Today Top 25. SC also made the finals in the prestigious John Wall Invitational en route to finishing the season undefeated in dominant fashion against all in-state competition.

“The recognition means my dreams are coming true,” Sharpe said. “When I was younger and I saw all the other guys getting noticed, I wanted that to be me. I wanted to be like them, and now I’m finally in that position.”

Sharpe bullied opponents he faced underneath the rim, using a variety of post moves to set himself up for many powerful dunks.

“When I get the ball, I just want to punish them,” he said. “I want them to know that this is my place, this is my house.”

Sharpe will look to continue his national momentum and gain a leadership role for possibly another special senior season, but he will never forget his junior year.

“Winning feels like a big relief,” Sharpe said. “We lost twice and then we came and won. All my boys are seniors and are leaving, so we just had to do it once before they graduated.”
