NC Junior Phenom Fab Five 2024 Class
Standing the test of time, the 15th Annual NC Junior Phenom camp took place Saturday, March 2nd at Proehlific Park in Greensboro, North Carolina. As usual, the event enjoyed a wealth of talent especially at the 2023 and 2024. In today’s issue, we are going to look at the FIVE FAB from the 2024 class and this class has a chance to be really good.
No. 52 5’10 2024 Jordan Vick (Southern Nash Middle School, Greenfield, NC)
Jordan Vick is a young player with a promising future. First of all, we’re talking about a athletiic and highly skilled player that can do just about a little bit of everything. He can handle, pass, shoot and most of all defend. We were impressed with his poise, maturity and overall knowledge and feel for the game. Vick averaged 27.3 PPG and got where he wanted when he wanted. If he continues to work hard and keep focused, he has a chance to be a really special player down the road.
No. 20 5’6 2024 Drew Hollifield (Shelby Middle School, Kings Mountain, NC)
Simply put, 5’6 Drew Hollifield has an advanced skill set for his age/grade. As a matter of fact, Hollifield led the camp in scoring by averaging 30.7 PPG. That being said, he scored efficiently from all three levels. He was knocking down 3-pointers, scoring in the midrange and using his craftiness getting to the rim.
No. 67 6’2 2024 Dylan Deluca (Metrolina Scholars Academy, Indian Trail, NC)
Without question, Dylan Deluca may have been one of the toughest players in camp. Deluca played with confidence and a “quiet” edge, but yet was highly productive in scoring and rebounding. He averaged 24.3 PPG, but it was his aggressive approach, high motor and ability to be in the thick of the action throughout the day that continously caught our attention.
No. 27 5’6 2024 Asher Brown (Hayesville Middle School, Brasstown, NC)
Asher Brown was simply a terrific all around player. He has a nice blend of athleticism, skill set, high IQ and advanced knowledge of the game for his age/grade. Brown averaged 22.7 PPG but did it all within the framework of our 3-dribble rule. He was quite efficient and effective with his dribbles and has the ability to score from all three levels. In addition, he’s very unselfish and has the ability to create plays for his teammates or create scoring opportunities for himself.
No. 57 5’11 2024 Alex Moye (Ayden Middle School, Wilson, NC)
Standing a strong, sturdy and athletic 5’11, Alex Moye was one of the more physically gifted players at camp. He has excellent strength, explosiveness accompanied with a matching skill set which dictates a promising basketball future. We were equally impressed with his toughness, grit, and high motor throughout the course of the day. Moye is an active rebounder with terrific anticipation and has the ability to score hustle points. Moye averaged 21.3 PPG.
