One of the great parts of the Phenom Hoops’ platform is we are able to see prospects before anyone else and go ahead and start their personal narrative. The majority of players, throughout our region, who end up going Division 1 (and some even the NBA) came through Phenom Hoops events in Middle School. Phenom’s 6th Annual David Rose Memorial Day Classic, set to take place in Greensboro, NC this weekend, is no different.
The event will have over 85 teams competing from 13u to 17u. Here are some of the middle school players who are trending toward becoming household names. Go ahead and get eyes on them early and be able to say, “I saw them before they were huge …”
5’11 2024 Jordan Vick
Team Power Red (NC) 14s
The last time we saw Vick he was winning MVP at the NC Junior Phenom exposure camp. Vick is the next guard up out of the 252 and is trending toward the national conversation in his class. He can handle, shoot and pass with great size. Vick’s feel is off the charts and has the frame that looks like he’ll continue to grow, very projectable Excited to be able to watch him this weekend, get eyes on him again and continue to watch his progression. He has a chance to be special.
6’1” 2023 Tremayne Parker
Team Felton (NC) 14s
The Parker name is one of legendary folk lore around North Carolina, as Tremayne is the younger brother of viral sensation Kwe Parker. Tremayne is a complete lead guard, who has the same athleticism as his brother Kwe, but also range out to the volleyball line and vision to see the floor and pin point pocket passes to his teammates all over the floor. The game comes easy to Tremayne and he may be tracking as one of the nation’s top PGs for this class before it is all said and done.
6’1” 2024 Evan Carter
Carolina Pressure (SC) 13s
Carter is one who makes it impossible to not notice on the floor. He plays with an all out motor, producing at each level, on both ends of the floor. At Phenom’s Queen City Middle School Showcase earlier this year, Carter won game MVP in 2 out of 4 games, averaging over 20 points per game. He can shoot, handle and attack and he is a tough rebounder and multi-positional defender. Watch closely, you can rest assured he WILL produce.
