Player Standouts at Session II of Phenom HS Jamboree

6’5 ’21 Lucas Taylor (Heritage) The Raleigh area is filled with talent and Heritage has as much as anyone, especially given how Taylor looked today. He’s long, athletic, and skilled which makes him a matchup problem at his size and position. Taylor is an impressive offensive player, but has even more tools and ability on the defensive end. He’s a likely candidate to start collecting Division I...

Afternoon Standouts at Phenom HS Jamboree

6’5 ’21 Mike Dudley (United Faith) United Faith always possesses a ton of talent, but Dudley might be the most enticing of their current group. He checks so many boxes, from size to shooting to athleticism, and should only continue to get better. Dudley is so smooth that he’s able to actively toggle between being a primary offensive option and scoring as needed. He could really take off this...

Phenom High School Jamboree: Eye Catchers Part 1

Southern Guilford Tyler Dearman (2019, 6’4): Lengthy prospect that brings more of an outside game offensively but can play multiple positions defensively. Solid understanding on how to get his opponent off balance, finding his way to put points on the board.  Not afraid to attack and body up in the post, even though he may not matchup weight wise to his opponents.  Highly underrated finisher...

Phenom High School Jamboree: Eye Catchers Part 2

Greensboro Day Cam Hayes (2021, 6’1): absolute stud at the guard position, plays and looks much more experienced than his listed year.  Looking like a clear Top-100 type player, he has great explosion off the floor.  His versatility on the floor on playing either the lead guard or shooting guard helps tremendously.

Kevin’s Fab 5 Phenom’s High School Jamboree   6’4 2019 Julius Burch: Southern Guilford High School Julius Burch had a pretty good day making an impact throughout each game.
