Jamie’s List of Five
Phenom’s High School Jamboree – Session 2
32 teams from around the region showed up to play on this platform. Some of the best competition, incredible exposure and college coaches all make this the best jamboree the region has.
Session 2 of the 6th Annual Phenom’s High School Jamboree proved just that. Players stepped up to the plate and took advantage of this opportunity. Here is five we saw!
6’ 2019 Keyshaun Langley (UNC-Greensboro)
Southwest Guilford HS (High Point, NC)
Honestly, three or four players from this Southwest Guilford team could have made this list, but in the spirit of spreading the love, we landed on Keyshaun here. That is an obvious and safe pick. Langley is an elite defender, with his ability to change the game on that end of the court. He has quick hands and an explosive nature to go along with tenacity. Langley is an unselfish lead guard, he is able to get anywhere on the court he wants and finishes high above the rim. HE also shot the ball well both in the pull-up game and off the catch from 3. The UNC-Greensboro commit has won at every level and should continue to do so.
5’10” 2019 Bryson Childress
North Stanly HS (New London, NC)
Childress is an incredibly exciting player who plays with the utmost chip on his shoulder. He talks non-stop throughout the game, both at his opponents and in leading his teammates. He proved to be tough to defend, with his deep range and his tight handle. He came into this event carrying 5 or so Division 2 offers and had some Division 1 schools looking closely at him. By the end of the day, Childress has everyone in the gym watching him, he will instantly become a crowd favorite every where he goes.
6’4” 2019 Demarcus Johnson
Pine Lake Prep (Mooresville, NC)
Johnson made a name for himself this summer playing with the Mooresville Magic. He continued this weekend and showed that he should be at the top of Division 1 programs recruiting boards. The lengthy and explosive lead guard showcased two-way upside, with the ability to turn defense into offense. He knocked down multiple 3s per game and finished above he rim. He played efficiently and aggressively. This should be a fun year for Pine Lake Prep and Johnson, he should become a top priority as a late signee.
6’4” 2022 Kheni Briggs
AL Brown HS (Concord, NC)
Briggs has always been on the regional (even national) radar. He has played on national level programs, however he has been out of position as a post player. Playing with this AL Brown High School team, he played on the ball, showcasing ability as a high level combo-guard. The lefty was able to not only handle the ball, but also initiate offense in the half and full court. He showed upside as a tough point of attack defender and finished well in the paint. This was a great performance for Briggs and he should track among the top in players in North Carolina, in his class.
6’3” 2019 Quest Adridge
Mt Tabor (Winston-Salem, NC)
Aldridge had numerous Division 1 coaches watching each of his games, and he did nothing short of show out for them. He has great length and really created offense for himself and others. Aldridge has great length and is quick and shifty in the open floor. Offensively he can shoot the ball well, with deep range and showcased vision. Expect for these coaches who watched to jump in soon. He will be the one who goes into college and whichever school gets him will look very smart in a couple years.
