The North Carolina 2023 class was well represented at the 16th Annual NC Phenom 150 camp held at Proehlific Park in Greensboro, North Carolina. 6’9 Callum Richard (Gaston Day) and 6’2 Bryce Cash (Charlotte Christian School) came in with lofty expectations, 6’4 Jackson McKnight, 6’6 Prashant Hill, and 6’0 Josiah Watkins added their names to our loaded North Carolina 2023 Watch List.
No. 123 6’4 Jakwon McKnight
The 6’4 freshman simply made a name for himself at the 16th Annual NC Phenom 150 camp. McKnight has excellent length, and led the camp in scoring by averaging 22.5 PPG in two full games of play. He has the ability to score from all three levels and plays with poise and maturity. In addition, McKnight is only beginning to scratch the surface on his long range potential. We’re talking about a skilled wing guard that has good basketball instincts and looks like he is only in the infant stages of his upside. McKnight does need to improve his shooting mechanics with a higher release point, its crystal clear that McKnight will be a scholarship level prospect that will be in high demand has he grows older.
No. 138 6’6 Prashant Hill (Cannon School)
Prashant Hill may have just been one of the biggest “break out” players at the camp. We’re talking about a highly energetic wing that sports tremendous size, length, athleticism and a matching skill set. Hill has excellent touch and range from the perimeter that and has the ability to score in the paint or on the perimeter. While Cannon is already hosting an amazing roster for the 2019-20 season, please don’t forget about the longevity and success CP3 has enjoyed over the years.
No. 141 6’9 Callum Richard (Gaston Day School)
As the old saying goes, “it’s hard to teach 6’9.” We’re talking about a highly skilled “big” that has the ability to step out and consistently knock the midrange elbow jumper. Standing an extremely long 6’9, Richard is tracking early on as a sure fire high major prospect. We were impressed with his touch and and outstanding footwork in the post. In addition, Richard was a force defensively with his rebounding and shot blocking ability.
No. 97 6′0″Josiah Watkins The Burlington School
Josiah Watkins came into the camp with little to no fanfare, but quickly made a name for himself by showing his unique blend of speed, skill and overall feel for the game. He’s an athletic and energetic scoring guard that also made a huge impression with his defensive quickness and ability to guard multiple positions.
No.106 6’2 Bryce Cash (The Burlington School)
Standing a strong and physical 6’2, Bryce Cash has the body that can simply overpower opposing guards. We were impressed with his overall skill set and outstanding basketball instincts. He has terrific body control and the ability to score from all three levels, although he is at his best going down hill attracting the rim.
