2020 6-foot-2 Cameron Thomas from boo Williams 16u is a name that already is garnering some early national attention but he could be on the verge of exploding on an even bigger level.
The July period has come and gone but it now gives our analysts at Phenom Hoops a chance to look back at all the talent we saw on the court in the past month. There were several names that stood out each and every week but one young talent guard keeps popping in our head.
2020 6-foot-2 Cameron Thomas from Boo Williams 16u is a name that already is garnering some early national attention but he could be on the verge of exploding on an even bigger level.
Thomas, who participated in the Phenom Hoops Stay Positive, showcased an incredibly high-level skill set that one doesn’t see much in such a young guard.
When watching this young man, he has legit scoring capabilities on so many levels. He is incredibly quick, handles the ball well and dribble penetrates with ease, and has knockdown confidence no matter where he is on the court. He also can defend full court as well; very impressive. The scary factor to consider is that he is a 2020 prospect and with even more room to grow.
Phenom Hoops Analyst Jamie Shaw had this to say after the Stay Positive Session II event:
“Even playing up it is obvious that Thomas ability far exceeds all else on the floor. The guard can create offense for himself and others on the floor. Without a doubt Thomas is a Top 100 type prospect and a sure fire high major guard.”
This summer has been a big one for Thomas, as his name continues to resonate with several programs and scouts.
“This summer has been great because I think I put my name out there and my focus has been just to keep playing and not to worry about offers or anything because they are going to come,” Thomas told Phenom Hoops.
It certainly was a big summer for Thomas, as he received two high-major offers from Virginia Tech and Florida. Both certainly intrigue Thomas early and he knows how much of an honor it is to be recruited at such a high level at such an early age.
“It is just an honor for some big programs to be coming after me early but I have to keep working on my game and don’t get complacent,” Thomas said. “Virginia Tech is close to home and Florida has been a great basketball program.”
Right now though, NC State is another program that could be on the verge of offering Thomas, as the Wolfpack have also expressed early interest. But with the talent Thomas possesses, he is no-doubt a high-major guard that will have programs recruiting him hard throughout his high school career.
