2025 Ahmari Hicks (Team HOPE Gripper): Hicks has had a solid few weeks this summer, and continued that early on here at the Summer Havoc. In a team-first victory, Hicks shows an ability to score and be effective when called upon in a variety of ways; knocking down shots, driving and creating, and making strong plays. 2025 Zymari Perry (NC Heels): Perry had a very good start to the event, and he...read more
By: Cooper Hart 5’11” ’26 Hudson Fitzgerald (WCBA/Broughton) It felt like Fitzgerald hit everything he shot on Saturday. He’s got confidence and range like no one in his class. His extremely repeatable shooting mechanics make it so that he rarely misses more than two in a row and he’s one of those shooters that can hit 5-6 straight without getting too high (many shooters struggle after getting...read more
By: Ethan Reece Throughout the season at Phenom Hoops, we have countless talented teams come through our events and catch the eyes of our scouts. I’ve personally had the pleasure of watching this Basketpoint 2025 group numerous times as they’ve been a feature team in our 15u division, making championship game appearances a routine. This group brings a tough, disciplined brand of basketball you...read more
by: Ethan Reece 2026 Donyeh Baird (Team Loyal)There are several guys in the 2026 class I’m finding to be seamlessly positionless and Donyeh is one of them.

He’s consistently been at the...read more
2025 Martin Giant (Basketpoint USA): Giant played extremely well to start his day. Already sporting great size at his age, Giant showed a little bit of his pull-up game in knocking down shots but was really putting it on the deck to either get to the line or to finish strong at the rim. Really like his blend of playmaking, finishing/scoring, and athleticism. 2025 CJ Purdie (Combine Academy...read more
By: DeAjai Dawkins 2023 Andrew Knittel (East Tennessee Kings/Volunteer High School) Andrew is a steady, intelligent guard that serves as a solid lead option for this team. Knittel attacks well off the bounce, given his fluid handle & overall confidence. This team’s offense executed at a high level, and Andrew responsible for a deal of that success. He should be receiving next-level attention...read more
by: Ethan Reece 2025 Brennan Oldham (Rising Pros)Brennan caught my eye early and impressed all game with his natural athleticism. The big and long forward really displayed a true two-way game starting with his defensive prowess around the basket and finishing through contact on the other end. He’s going to keep growing and getting coordinated with his body but he already possesses a good...read more
