Drake Powell ends spring showcase season in Josh Level Classic

Powell will report to UNC on June 6


Former Northwood basketball star Drake Powell ended his tour of spring showcases with his third Josh Level Classic appearance Saturday.

Playing alongside and against the top high school basketball prospects in North Carolina, Powell, a member of Team Warriors, put on a well-rounded performance with 12 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Team Warriors, featuring other big names such as Juke Harris and Kendre Harrison, defeated Team NGFS, 136-131.

“For my third year in the Josh Level Classic, I remember being the young guy like Cole (Cloer), Dionte (Neal), Kendre, (and) Sadiq (White),” Powell said. “To see me now as the veteran of this event, that’s really cool to me.”

Powell will move into UNC on June 5 before reporting to the team the next day.

“I’m just looking forward to working hard every day and learning as much as I can,” Powell said.
