The latest NCPreps.com high school basketball polls are out and Charles B. Aycock is listed ninth in the 3-A boys rankings.
That's quite a feat for the Golden Falcons, who at 13-1 have reeled off 12 straight victories after losing to Hunt in their second game. It was just a few years ago that Aycock endured a winless season and now David West has the Falcons among the best 3-A teams in the state.
Aycock has a deep team but two Falcons are attracting the attention of a lot of collegiate recruiters. Brandon Winford, a 6-foot-7 junior, has been contacted by many major NCAA Division I programs such as N.C. State and Georgetown while senior Isaac Ryals has some Div. I suitors as well as many Div. II schools in the region.
Aycock is the only team in The Wilson Times readership area that is ranked but Kinston is the No. 1 2-A boys team while Rocky Mount is fifth in the 3-A boys poll.
