What a day of basketball. Kingsport, TN definitely showed out for this one. We had everything you would want, from kids with high-level offers, to young prospects and everything in between. Just like with Raleigh and Cherokee prior, Phenom Hoops’ Fall Camp Series has embodied everything Rick Lewis set out for these camps to do when he first created them in 2003.
Here is a close look at the standouts, the names the casual reader has to familiarize with … the names you got to know!
6’3″ 2021 Darius Davis
Moravian Prep (NC)
Offers: Rhode Island, LaSalle
What is not to like about a do-it-all wing who gives his all on every possession, on both ends of the floor. Davis ended up as the camp’s leading scorer, as he showed to be a very crafty and explosive finisher in the paint. He was also a terror on the defensive end as his ability to guard the 1-3 earned him the camp’s Mr. Defense award. Davis is the type of player who brings something very special to a team, it is his tenacity and passion, and the LaSalle and Rhode Island offers he claims makes sense.
6’8″ Post Grad Cam Stitt
Beckley Prep (WV)
Offers: Oklahoma St, East Carolina, Middle Tennessee, Stetson, Hampton, Robert Morris
Stitt has a very aesthetically pleasing game, as many onlookers were saying Stitt’s archetype is in line with former UNC wing Cameron Johnson. Now we aren’t saying he is an NBA lottery pick, but we are saying at 6’8″, Stitt showcased the ability to create off the bounce as well as a pure jump shot, with consistent repeatable form and deep range. There is a lot to like here, and we will be excited to see what kind of step he takes during his post-grad year.
6’9″ 2022 Deante Green
Christ School (NC)
Offers: NC A&T, Winthrop, Norfolk State
Green has a lot of tools in the bag and it is that versatility that really opens your eyes with him as a prospect. Standing 6’9″, Green has great size, good length and is very athletic (both fluidly and explosively). He is able to get the ball on the block and finish with both hands or he can step out and create from the wing or the high post. Green is a good shooter and has good enough handle and control to grab and go, to initiate the offense. He is a Top 150 type prospect and his recruitment should reach the high major stuff sooner rather than later.
6’10” 2021 Saliou Ngour
Beckley Prep IJN (WV)
There is something about a young big who is incredibly fluid with the way he moves. Not to mention the rapid speed with which he changes ends from defense to offense or his elbows at the rim athleticism, but there you have Salious Ngour. His floor is an All-Defensive type player at the Division 1 collegiate level, however, his ceiling is much higher. We watched him play in his very first organized basketball game last December, and the strides he has made since then are uncanny. He has a nice mid-range touch, he has good hands and he makes decisive moves to the rim. If a similar jump is made from year two to year three, watch out! Schools should already be in town, joining Akron.
6’1″ 2022 Brevin Klym
Not only was Klym the best shooter at the Tennessee Phenom 150, on this day he was the best shooter we have had at any Phenom camp this year. Not only was he dead-eye off the catch, but he showcased a little stuff to his game with his ability to get open and act as a functional secondary ball-handler in the half-court. He played with a swagger, within himself for sure, but with the ability to make the crowd rise to its feet. Klym knocked in, at least, four three’s each game, most of which didn’t touch the net. This was about as good of a first viewing as you could have of a player, being he is only a sophomore, we are very excited about what he does moving forward.
