If you have been following our articles on Phenom Hoops, you have seen we have been talking about a few rising freshmen that have already created themselves a name. Well, we have another one down at Lexington high school in South Carolina and this will for sure be a name you will want to remember.

2024 6’5 Cam Scott put on a show all year long, averaging 15.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks per game, helping him earn All-State honors in South Carolina as an EIGHTH grader. 

Scott showcased just the beginning of what he could at the South Carolina Top 80 back in October, where we said this about the young man.

“He’s a long, smooth two-way wing/forward prospect that showcased flashes of dominance despite being the youngest player at camp. Scott is a knockdown three-point shooter with craftiness, intelligence, and the ability to thrive with or without the ball in his hands. He handles the ball with care and is capable of creating for others pretty effectively. Scott’s feel for the game is well beyond his years. He’s already a great rebounder and useful defender that’ll only get better as his body continues to physically mature.”

We also able to speak with Lexington head coach, Elliott Pope, to learn more about what he saw this season as well and where he is looking to improve his game.

“As a player, I think he came in and he was going up against a physical mismatch.  So, he was a little physically outmatched at times against experienced players but that didn’t slow him down from being aggressive.  He continued to attack, he continued to shoot the ball, and continued to be a force offensively even though teams were scouting him hard.  I think the biggest thing for him was that he didn’t let the age gap deter him and his game.  He was able to handle himself against older opponents and show maturity and handle adversity.  The thing that he has been committed to working on is his one-dribble pull-up.”

Scott is only just starting his journey as one of the premier talents in the region but he has a great head on his shoulders, is continuing to put in the work on the court, and is certainly taking care of business in the classroom. Already receiving interest from programs, Scott is going to be one of the top talents and is showing that early on.
