Each and every year, early on there are players that explode onto the basketball recruiting scene, taking early spring exposure and using that to catapult them into being a huge target for several big-time schools.
This year, one of the biggest breakout players so far for Phenom Hoops has been 2020 6’5 Ahmil Flowers. Playing early in several events for Phenom Hoops back in March and April, Flowers showed that he has the talent to be a high-level player.
He is a prospect that is a two-way player with the ability to shoot, pass, score, and defend at a high level. He impacts the floor in so many ways with his athleticism and one can see that his confidence is continuing to grow just as quickly.
Now, he is using that exposure to capture the eyes of college coaches.
“I believe it has been going well and my recruitment is really starting to pick up after these past couple of tournaments,” Flowers told Phenom Hoops about his summer so far. “The Phenom events are what got me my exposure, especially the one in Spartanburg. The Phenom Opening got my name out there and I played well, but the Phenom Challenge is what really got my name out there.”
Most of the schools have loved what they have seen and have lined the baselines to check out what Flowers can bring to the table. They love his size and frame so far but he is still only scratching the surface of what he can be, which is why so many schools are jumping on him fast.
“They usually try to get to know me and my family and ask about things I do well and things I feel like I can improve on,” he said when asked what coaches have been talking to him about.
Right now, Western Carolina, Mars Hill, and Elon have all pulled the trigger with an offer and each one has a few key factors that have stood out already to him.
Western Carolina: probably has contacted me the most and send me the most mail and it seems like everybody at Western Carolina is very eager to recruit me.
Elon: has a very beautiful campus and a new arena and practice facility.
Mars Hill: reminds me of my high school, it’s old, so it wouldn’t be a lot of adjusting to fit into.
But the list only expands with interest and Flowers will FOR SURE be a target on several college coaches’ lists this summer during the LIVE period.
Schools like Appalachian State, Virginia Tech, Radford, UNCG, Lincoln Memorial, Wake Forest, East Carolina, NC A&T and Marquette have all shown interest his way. So, his list could dramatically grow if he continues his recent trend.
Right now, Flowers is taking the process easy and letting his play do the talking for him. He is looking to focus and continue to play hard this summer with the Greensboro Warriors, eventually continuing to garner more attention from colleges and narrow his list down.
But with what he showed at the Phenom Hoops events early on, that list should dramatically increase in the coming months, as the North Carolina product has certainly made a name for himself this spring and summer.
