Providence Day junior point guard Devon Dotson is the No. 1 recruit in North Carolina for the class of 2018, according to the latest rankings from Phenom Hoop Report, a regional scouting service that tracks the state closely.

Phenom Hoop Report has already released its 2020 and 2019 lists. Two area stars -- Rocky River’s Jaden Springer and Cox Mill’s Wendell Moore Jr. -- lead the rankings of the state’s freshmen and sophomores.

Among juniors, Dotson is averaging 23.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, six assists and is making 58 percent of his 2-point field goal attempts. He’s helped Providence Day (13-5) to a No. 3 ranking in the Observer’s Sweet 16 poll. Dotson and the Chargers were scheduled to play CISAA conference rival Charlotte Latin Tuesday night.

For the class of 2018, Phenom Hoops ranked 155 N.C. players. Several Observer-area players joined Dotson in the top 25: No. 5 Jairus Hamilton of Cannon School; No. 6 Hunter Tyson of Piedmont; No. 8 Trey Wertz of Providence Day; No. 10 Blake Preston of Charlotte Christian; No. 11 Kody Shubert of Lincoln Charter; No. 12 Nate Hinton of Gaston Day; No. 19 Jamarius Burton of Independence; No. 21 Quan McCluney of Gaston Day; and No. 25 Qon Murphy of Cannon School.
