POB’s Eye Catchers from Day 3 at Phenom Holiday Classic (Part 2)

2022 DJ Nix (Cannon): Even in a loss, Nix was incredibly productive and just seemed to be everywhere on the court. No matter where you put him, Nix was able to create havoc and simply produce. He showed his full arsenal, creating for himself, getting to the basket to score, knocking down shots on all levels, and getting on the boards.  He finished with 35 points and 12 rebounds, in one of...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Holiday Classic (Day 2, Part 2)

2025 John Lash (Charlotte Christian): Hard to believe that this young man is only a freshman, as he plays more like a veteran on the court.  Really like his size and his motor on the floor, being assertive on the boards but also plays with such poise and touch.  Great frame already for his age, has a smart IQ in how to score around opponents, and has good touch with his shot. 2022 Logan Blair...

North Carolina Top 80 Camp Evaluations: Team 7

Team 7 Coach: Ryan Bernardi #7: 6’0 ’23 Jaiden Thompson (Central Cabarrus) Starting things off, we look at a player who showcased a scrappy, high-motor presence throughout camp, Jaiden Thompson. He’s a tough, heady guard prospect with a nice feel and the ability to make an impact with or without the ball in his hands. Thompson is a quality three-point shooter, but also attacks the basket...

Dawkins’ Standouts from Day 1 of Hoop State League (Championship Weekend)

By: DeAjai Dawkins 5’11 2022 Kyron Weil (Believe Prep)  Kyron earned my unwavering respect after his final game against Word of God. Weil, with that single game, showed me a level of toughness, composure, ball-handling, and team-orientation that proved his competence to me. I believe this is a lead guard that  coaches would fawn over. Relentless attacker that gets into the lane and...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Fall Finale/ Hoop State League (Day 1, Part 2)

2023 Donovan Raymond (United We Stand): Raymond had a really strong showing in Week 3 of the Hoop State League, one of his best and most consistent performances.  He showed you a glimpse of why so many schools should be looking his way and he continues to develop and show what the end product could be.  You just don’t see too many bigs with his mobility, ability to defend out on the perimeter,...
