The great part of any Phenom 150 Exposure Camp is the platform it provides to allow players to breakout. Every camp we host, there are numerous prospects we already know, prospects who we haven’t seen in a while and prospects we have never heard of and are putting eyes on for the first time. The platform has been built as such that every student-athlete in attendance gets seen and gets an opportunity to live out their dreams at the appropriate level. The inaugural ENC Phenom 150 Exposure Camp was no different.
Here are the standouts by class, some of them we knew well, some we hadn’t seen in a while and some we had not heard of prior …
6’7” Sam Perez
Middle Creek HS (Apex, NC)
Perez walks in with a basketball friendly frame, with good size, good length and broad shoulders. Once he starts playing, he also has a very basketball friendly game. Perez is able to put the ball on the floor and get to the basket or shoot the outside catch and shoot 3. He is a touted baseball pitcher as well, but that shouldn’t scare off the basketball coaches, he is a good one with all the ability of a wing D1s should be hot and heavy over.
6’7” Tre Morgan
Green Hope HS (Cary, NC)
Morgan comes in with a great size and long arms. What he does best though is self-awareness, he knows exactly what and who he is as a player. Morgan rebounded the ball well, he affected shots at the rim and he finished at the basket. Not much more you could as for from you big, great teammate, great motor, lots of productive intangibles to like here. Excited to see the continued growth this season.
6’ Tyler Gill
Trinity Academy (Raleigh, NC)
Gill’s best attribute is his speed, he is an absolute blur with the basketball in his hands. Gill was able (and willing) to defend his man for 94 feet, with quick feet and a dogged mentality. With the ball in his hands, Gill is a straight line, downhill driver toward the basket. As a paint touch lead guard, he showcased his ability to get to the basket. He also made a couple of catch and shoot 3s here. This year at Trinity Academy, it will be his team. We are eager to see what that looks like.
5’9” Khristopher Franklin
Henderson Collegiate (Henderson, NC)
Franklin just walked on the floor and made plays. Nothing was flashy about his game, and performances, but everything about him was tough and rugged. He is a quick on quick and explosive guard who defended the ball full court and made plays with the ball in his hands. Franklin passed the ball well and he knocked down threes as well as finishing at the rim. A lot to like here as a tough and rugged player who set the tone from the opening tip.
6’7” Will Felton
Millbrook HS (Raleigh, NC)
Felton came into camp with one of the bigger reputations and had some good matchups while in camp. Felton has good length and a strong body. His best attribute on the floor is his ability to rebound. As a below the rim big man, he really has the mentality of, “go get the ball.” He did a good job drawing contact around the basket, using the rim to help ward off rim protectors, and he made his free throws. You know what you’re getting with Felton, nothing flashy, but a blue-collar showing.
