Cox Mill High sophomore Wendell Moore remains No. 1 in the N.C. Class of 2019, according to the latest updated rankings from Phenom Hoop Report, a regional scouting service that closely follows the state.

Moore, a 6-foot-5 combo guard, is joined in the top 25 by several Observer-area players: No. 4 BJ Mack (6-8 forward, Charlotte Christian); No. 7 Patrick Williams (6-6 guard, West Charlotte); No. 19 JC Tharrington (guard, Charlotte Christian); and No. 24 Raquan Brown (guard, Rocky River).

Moore, ranked No. 1 in the August preseason rankings, was offered by North Carolina as a freshman, which is rare. He also holds offers from Charlotte, Florida, Syracuse, Tennessee and Wake Forest.

For the season, Moore is averaging 23.3 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.2 blocks. Cox Mill, No. 12 in the Observer’s Sweet 16 poll, is 11-5 and is scheduled to play East Rowan at home Tuesday at 8 p.m.
