Phenom Hoops’ High School Series is going to be off the charts this year. With the addition of one of the best and most established event coordinators in the country, Webb Wellman, Phenom Hoops event series will not only bring some of the nation’s premier high school talent to the stage, but it will be an atmosphere and exposure like no other event series in this country.
Unlike other event coordinators, Phenom Hoops is doing a series of events; not just one blow out but 11 events throughout the region for the fans. Of course, a majority of the events will be in our home state, the Hoop State, North Carolina, but South Carolina and West Virginia will also be getting events like nothing else they have seen.
The 2020 class is loaded with talent, with the likes of Isaiah Todd, Cam Thomas, MarJon Beauchamp, Jaemyn Brakefield, Henry Coleman, and Josh Hall all making waves among the nation’s top 50 prospects. All of these players will be playing in various events on Phenom Hoops’ Event Series this year.
These are dudes, the ones who pack out the gyms and makes plays that go viral immediately as the plays are seen all over the internet. Not to mention, the schools on each of these kids’ final lists, as expected, are the biggest names in college basketball; Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan State, UNC and more.
Looking toward the future, ESPN’s 2021 Top 60 featured six players showcased in the series. 6’11” Charles Bediako is slated as Canada’s top prospect in this age group. South Carolina’s top prospect is John Butler, with a big national reputation, and North Carolina’s top prospects in the rankings are Bryce McGowens and Cam Hayes.

Fisher is being dubbed as the best prospect ever to come from Canada. Now we are saying that right now, but numerous respected people are saying the same thing behind closed doors.
