Every year some of the top players from around the region show up at Phenom’s David Rose Memorial Day Classic and put on a show. In the events 6th year, we have seen numerous videos go viral with a few Youtube clips obtaining over a million views. The players show out!
This year should be no different, the line up is thick and there are some cant miss talents who will be taking the court. Here are some of the 2019 prospects you NEED to put eyes on.
6’8” Jaelyn Withers
Team Loaded NC
Withers has quite the name and the buzz surrounding him. He has long been considered a top prospect, ever since Phenom Hoops ranked him among North Carolina’s Top 5 freshman in the class. He has continued to get better, as he measured with a 37” vertical and a 6’11” wing span at the NC Top 80 combine. Withers carries over 20 offers from the likes of Texas, Xavier, NC State, Florida and many others.
6’4” Demarcus Johnson
Johnson has such a smooth and effortless feel for the game. He has great length and natural athleticism that plays very well at the point guard position. Johnson carries an offer from Appalachian State, but more should be coming as he continues to get seen Watch out in July, he should become a hot commodity for D1 schools around the region.
6’10” David Eilen
Eilen is long and naturally athletic. He runs very well for a player his size and has great, very passer friendly hands. Eilen is new to the game of basketball, but he also carries a 4.0 GPA. Still gaining strength, Eilen has a presence on the block, with touch over his left shoulder. He is a natural shot blocker and powerful dunker around the basket. A lot of upside here.
6’5” Saveon Fall
Team Denver – NC
Fall walked into Phenom’s Challenge and just lit the event on fire. He showcased a complete scorer’s game with deep range and athleticism around the rim. Fall has upside as a defensive stopper, but it was his scoring acumen from 3 levels that really opened eyes. Look for him to continue that ascend into July where he should become a priority for local D1 programs.
6’8” Austin Sloan
Sloan is very unsuspectingly bouncy. He will catch a couple massive dunks per game that you just don’t see coming. The skilled forward is able to rip through and get downhill from the mid-range/wing and knock down jump shots, off the catch, beyond the 3-point line. He has good defensive timing and is a player that D1 schools will be forced to take notice of because of how he plays and his production. A very intriguing D1 prospect.
