Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Jacob Dar
Committed to: Emory & Henry
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“Dar is a player that was born in South Sudan and eventually came to the US when he was only two years old. He grew up in Utah for some time and then moved to Nebraska, where he spent his middle school and a few high school years before coming to North Carolina. Now, he is looking to make his mark at Freedom Christian. When watching how he operated on the floor in Rock Hill, Dar gave us a glimpse of his ability to knock down shots while also using his length to his advantage on both ends. With his wingspan, he is able to rise over defenders but also finish at the rim and get on the boards. “I’m a versatile player, so I can make shots, finish at the basket, find open teammates, and play defense,” Dar told Phenom Hoops. “And I use my length to my advantage on offense and defense.”
“Dar has is a player that caught my immediate attention the second I sat down. The long, active wing impressed me the most this weekend from the motor he consistently carries throughout an entire game. Dar plays extremely hard and leaves his fingerprint on the entire game. With his size and length, he could already fit on a college roster and with the guard skills he displayed today, his potential is absolutely through the roof. I suspect Dar’s recruitment to increase, due to his impressive performances today.”
“Dar is one that I think continues to fall under the radar but is starting to gain some traction with coaches and that he should. We are talking about a 6’6 developing prospect that continues to grow with his understanding of his game each time he is on the court. He can operate and defend multiple positions, especially with his wingspan, but also showed his activity level and ability to finish around the rim. Add that onto his ability to push the ball in transition and handle the ball, knocked down shots, and helps on the boards.”
