Class of 2023 wing Simeon Wilcher made a strong impression in the Lions season opener.

Wilcher was first off the bench for Roselle Catholic on Friday night against Trenton Catholic Academy. The freshman made his presence felt mostly with effort and energy, but his first career varsity points set the tone for the rest of the game.

On a pass from his older brother and Xavier commit CJ Wilcher, Simeon put down a one-handed breakaway dunk. He has that kind of athletic playmaking ability.

Wilcher made other quality impressions in his first varsity game which ended as a blowout win for Roselle Catholic. He was engaged and flying on defense, changing and contesting shots, and even stood his ground on possessions against VCU commit Jamir Watkins. At times Wilcher was even trusted to bring the ball up as the Lions were shorthanded at guard without Binghamton commit Richie Greaves.

His legitimate 6’3 frame combined with his natural abilities makes Wilcher look like more than your average freshman. He’s on high major radars including an offer from St. John’s.

The ceiling for Roselle Catholic’s standout freshman is high, and what he brings to the table will have an impact on how successful the no. 1 team in New Jersy will be this season.
