After a dominant run at South Central High School (Winterville, North Carolina) last season Day’Ron Sharpe has decided to transfer to national powerhouse Montverde (Florida) Academy for his senior season.
Sharpe, a forward who is committed to North Carolina, said the move would better prepare him for the next level.

“I wanted to go into my freshman year of college ready to play and produce,” Sharpe said. “My family and I felt like Monteverde was the best place to help me do that because of their program’s history; they play against the best teams in the country and that will only get me better so I can be ready for college.”
Last season, Sharpe averaged 17.4 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks a game while shooting 60 percent from the field to lead South Central to a 30-1 record, a state title and a No. 6 ranking in USA Today’s Super 25.
The Eagles fell in the semifinals of the GEICO Nationals last season; an ending Sharpe said he wants to change next season.
“After winning a state championship,” Sharpe said. “Imagine how it feels to win a national championship!”
