She has basically decided to stay at home. Farmville Central is < ten miles from ECU. FCHS plays in the classification above our local HS, so I have not seen her play. That said, the girls basketball competition in that classification is very uneven. Farmville has won their division three consecutive years and Amiya is the main reason for last two. Some of the scores have been ridiculously lopsided.A GT recruit at one point was a Top-70 ranked 2022 WBB prospect in Amiya Joyner, 6-2 F, Farmville Central HS (NC), who has announced her commitment to East Carolina (AAC).
I played at North Fulton in Buckhead, a City of Atlanta school in the ‘70’s. For the dozen public HS in the area, we had the same dilemma, mostly for the Girls. They would get hammered in some games by West Fulton or Mays by 108-6, 102-4, 112-8. One time during announcements the PA skipped their score and announced my name for competing in a regional math championship at Dunphy’s Royal Coach that was weeks away.Watching HS basketball at the 1A or 2A level in rural NC is strange. It's basically the same for boys and girls, but the girls game can be totally dominated by two players. I have seen 100-20 scores. Those games are not rare with Farmville Central girls games.
I will be surprised if we see a Syracuse style unraveling this Spring, but the transfer portal could be ripe with talent. I believe Nell is wise to keep a spot open and hope she retains the women she wants. Amiya would have been a nice pick up, but unless she always had her hopes on ECU I bet there is a reason (academic, perhaps) that NC State or UNC was not all over her recruitment. ECU is pretty much taking kids who cannot get in at UNC or NC State.Could be wrong on this, but GTWBB hasn’t had a Post come in for an official visit recently or a scheduled trip to campus as of today. Thus, not expecting any signings this month other than the five verbal commitments. Looks like Spring period.
