Eye Catchers from Coach Rick’s TOC: Class of 2023 (Part 2)

2023 Jacob Tiller (Team Swish): Tiller was a consistent presence on the court and really showed that he can lead the charge offensively.  But outside of his offensive capabilities, Tiller showed that he is a hard-nosed, tough, and a player that leaves it all out on the court.  He plays with high energy, brings good athleticism, and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Offensively though, he...

Phenom All-American Camp Evaluations: Team 8

Team 8 Coach: Brian Allen #11: 5’8 ’25 Gavin Fields (Ashbrook) Starting things off, we look at a player that arguably stood out as the best perimeter defender on this team, Gavin Fields. He’s a young, tough, slightly undersized guard prospect with a high motor and excellent quickness. Fields is a great penetrator, able to effortlessly get downhill and finish or set up others. He’s also...

By; DeAjai Dawkins 6’5 2024 Jucqarie Love (NLPB Storm 15U)  No individual player has shined brighter to me today than 2024 Jucqarie Love. The Southern Guilford prospect has been absolutely electric today, starting his day off with a 30 point game in a way.

Noah’s Hoopers from Phenom Summer Grind (Day 1, Part 2)

By: Noah Hooper 5’8 2024 Nick Diaz (Elite 1 15U) When you see Nick’s size and slim frame, it’s easy to overlook him, but if you pay close attention to his game, it’s really a lot to like about him as he scored in bunches today and completely took over his team’s game this afternoon. The wiry guard was very active on defense as he played passing lanes very well and did it with a high motor....

Player Standouts from Coach Rick’s TOC (Day 3, Part 2)

By: Heath Gulledge 2021 6’4 Glenn Bynum (Mint Hill Lakers) Bynum is a really athletic guard who can score on all three levels. He makes teams respect his jump shot and because of this, driving lanes open up for him to get to the rim. He knows how to use the dribble to get into the mid-range area to get step-backs and shoot over defenders. I like the craftiness he has around the rim when taller...

Noah’s Hoopers from Coach Rick’s TOC (Day 2, Part 2)

By: Noah Hooper 6’6 2025 Trent Steinour (Riptide 2025) When I look at Trent on the floor, the first thing I notice is how well he is able to use his length to be a disruptive asset defensively for his team. He also uses his length very well to gain positioning and grab rebounds for his team which helps them tremendously. Not only did he use his long frame well, but he also had very solid...
