POB’s Eye Catchers: Underclassmen at the SC Top 80 (Class of 2026/2027)

2026 Lance Barnes (Catawba Ridge): Barnes continues to be a young player that I believe can help a program down the road, and is one that you want to have on the court. His blend of size (6'2), overall impact, his IQ, and skill set offer a lot to his team.

Player Standouts from Phenom Rise Showcase (Day 2)

by: Ethan Reece 2026 Jacquan Clay (Carolina Rockets)I'm not sure Jacquan knows how good he actually is.

Player Standouts from Phenom Rise Showcase (Day 1: Part 1)

by: Ethan Reece 2026 Lance Barnes (Carolina Heights)Lance led the charge in many ways this morning, but none more so than with his ability to facilitate. He's a long guard with great instincts as a rebounder that turned into leading the break with really smart decision-making. Saw the floor so well, impressive for a rising eighth-grader to know when to cut as well as read the defense so easily...
