2017 Central-Macon (GA) guard Antarius McCoy has enjoyed a considerable amount of on court success up to this point in his prep career. In three season’s, his career averages are 16-points, 6.1-rebounds, and 3.7-assists per game. He is a multiple times All-City, All-Region, and All-Middle Georgia selectee. On top of his individual accomplishments, McCoy’s Chargers have made deep playoff runs over the past two years reaching the GHSA Class AAA Sweet 16 and Elite 8, but tough times could be on the horizons for the 6-foot-3 shooting guard.
With fellow teammates Derrick Evans Jr. and Kentrevious Jones going their separate ways, McCoy will be in unfamiliar territory this season. Evans, an all-state performer, signed a football scholarship with Carson-Newman University. While Xavier commit, Jones transferred over to crosstown rival Westside-Macon (GA) for his senior season. This leaves McCoy as the last standing member of Central’s lethal “Big 3” group.
With the recruitment period in full swing, things have been moving a bit slow for the smooth-playing senior. Currently, the Naval Academy and Tennessee Tech University are the only two schools that have checked in on McCoy prior to the season. However, expect interest to skyrocket if he is able to flourish in the lead role for the Chargers this season.
