Phenom Hoops was back in Raleigh once again after an impressive Phenom ENC Junior camp, this time taking a look at some of the top prospects in Eastern North Carolina.
What an event it was at the JD Lewis Center.
Players were able to showcase their talent, while also developing their skills. Each player brought something unique to the table, as these were the players that caught our eyes.
2021 6’5 Jacari Outlaw (Wayne Country Day)
- Outlaw’s mobility on the floor created a little havoc at the Phenom ENC 150. With a 6’5 frame but an ability to play inside and out, and move very well all throughout the court, he found ways to score in effective ways. He was attacking all day.
2023 6’0 Ryan Wooten (Grace Christian)
- One of the younger prospects at the camp, he came to compete. Still developing his overall game and body, he played at a great pace and didn’t force the offense. He made strong passes and displayed a nice smooth stroke from deep. Keep an eye on this young man, as he continues to develop his handling and overall game.
2020 5’9 Anthony Collins (Moravian Prep)
- Collins has that killer mentality but also one that plays with a chip on his shoulder. Being that lead point guard, Collins looked to get his teammates involved but also could score the ball on all three levels. What you really have to like is his confidence from behind the arc.
2021 6’6 Sam Perez (Middle Creek HS)
- With his size and ability to play up top, Perez really should bring intrigue for college programs. A smooth shooter from three but also displayed that he can find his teammates and get to the rim and finish strong. Reminds a little bit of what Garrett Hien brought to the game when we first saw him this past season, who is now committed to Furman.
2020 6’2 Jay Hickman (Northwood Temple)
- Hickman did a little of everything on the court. He already has shown that he is a very good shooter on the floor but he was also able to break down defenders with one or two dribbles.
2022 6’1 Nikolas Graves (Durham Academy)
- He might have not been a big-time scorer but he was a facilitator on the court. Graves’ handles were highly impressive, going in and out and getting his defenders guessing at times. But he played with his head up, showcasing his vision, and being that true glue guy.
