Dawkins’ Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2024 Austin Swartz (Team Charlotte) It’s amazing to think that Swartz has two remaining years of high school basketball. I don’t think I’ve seen a sophomore scorer with Swartz’s 6’4 frame that can put the ball in the basket like he can. Swartz embodies the impact that a true dynamic shooter brings to a team. His shot-making capabilities have reached a level where defenders...

Noah’s Hoopers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

By: Noah Hooper 5’10 2025 Kamari Cooke (Team Charlotte 15U)After watching Cooke this weekend I have come to the conclusion that this kid is a certified bucket getter. Throughout his games and especially this morning, Cooke was phenomenal at using his quickness to get to his spots and hit shots. He also has a lot of wiggle to his game which allows him to catch defenders off guard and wonder what...

By: Malcolm Morgan 2024 Jaylon Hoover (Hoop Dreams) This kid was impressive in today’s performance. I loved the composure about him and the way that he handled pressure.

Phenom Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

By: Nicolas Chapman 2025 Landon Shirk (15u Tennessee impact) When watching Tennessee Impact play in their tournament, number 24 stood out to me with his shifty play and crafty layup package. Landon Shirk plays with confidence and knows that he can take over and win a game down the stretch. He’s almost unblockable at the rim with the way he twists his body and arms to become out of his...

Player Standouts at Day Three of Phenom G3 Showcase

5’9 ’25 Gavin Fields (Carolina Charge) Though slightly undersized, it was easy to be impressed with Fields during his first showing of the day. He’s a blindingly quick lead guard with nice IQ and the ability to touch the paint at a seemingly nonstop rate. Fields finishes well, especially for his size, but also hits jumpers and creates well for himself and others. He’s a relentless defender with...

Dawkins’ Standouts: Phenom G3 Showcase (Part 2)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2023 Avion Pinner (Team Curry) Avion Pinner has consistently impressed me when I’ve watched him play, but it is not for his high flying ability or overall versatility. Pinner’s ability to impact the game on the defensive end specifically is an incredibly special skill. Aside from moving his feet well, Pinner shows solid timing when protecting the rim and gives opposing scorers...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 2, Afternoon)

2025 Sadiq White (Team United): The progression that we have seen over the last year with White has been impressive and has to get you even more excited about the future for this young prospect.  He has great size at 6’7, runs the floor extremely well, is fluid and finish at the rim, can guard and play multiple positions, and his offensive game continues to expand as well as his confidence...

Noah’s Hoopers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 2, Afternoon)

By: Noah Hooper 6’0 2024 Jordan Vick (Team Trezz Edwards)Vick really impressed me as he put the team on his back this afternoon in a close game against Carolina Pressure. Throughout the Contest Jordan shot the ball extremely well and he also showcased his sneaky athleticism as he caught my eye with a poster slam. Moreover, he played under control and made the right decisions which will take him...

Dawkins’ Standouts: Phenom G3 Showcase (Part 1)

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2025 Larry Davis (CSB Select ‘25-‘24)  Larry is an obvious talent at the lead guard spot, despite playing with a certain level of reservation at times. He did a great job at showing an ability to knock down perimeter jumpers, as well as use his quickness to get into the lane. He has a solid handle that could be improved upon over time. Someone who does not let his size deter...

Player Standouts: Day 2 (Afternoon) Phenom G3 Showcase

By: Nicholas Chapman 2025 Sadiq White (15u Team United) A team that a lot of people were excited to watch today was Team United’s 15u squad. And one of the players that created a lot of that hype is 6’6” forward Sadiq White. He is insanely athletic, making highlight plays every time he touches the ball. He overpowers the defense in the way he drives to the hole to get a bucket. He’s a great...

Player Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 2, Afternoon)

By: Malcolm Morgan 2023 AJ Hewitt (PSB Select) I enjoyed watching this kid play today. Has great footwork in the paint, took smart shots, and hauled in a lot of rebounds. Very high IQ player and used his body very well. He also has a soft touch from the mid range free throw line area and really just had an impressive overall day. He never really got sped up and just stayed aggressive all game...

Player Standouts at Day Two of Phenom G3 Showcase

6’5 ’23 Bryce Cash (Team Curry) There are so many quality pieces within this talented Team Curry group, but Cash is quietly as valuable as anyone on the roster. We’ve seen him shine as an undisputed leader on plenty of occasions, but there’s something particularly impressive about his ability to produce within a role. Cash is a smart, strong, athletic guard with excellent toughness, defensive...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Morning, Day 2)

2026 Nick Arnold (Carolina Riptide): When you watch Arnold operate on the court, you have to automatically think that he is an older, more experienced prospect. But when you come to find out that he is part of the 2026 class, Arnold is quite impressive and makes you excited about his future. Such a poised, polished point guard that sees the floor, makes the right reads, gets everyone involved,...

Noah’s Hoopers Day 2 Part 1: Phenom G3

By: Noah Hooper 6’5 2023 Lamont Guy Jr. (Team Hope 2023 CHRIS)Lamont is a player that immediately caught my eye this morning as he was doing everything for his team on both sides of the ball. He had a very high motor from the start and did not take his foot off the gas down the stretch. Along with his great work ethic, Lamont showed great versatility at his size as his footwork around the basket...

Player Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Morning, Day 2)

By: Nicolas Chapman 2024 Darrell Harrington (Team Hustle 16u) While watching Team Hustle’s 2024 squad today, one player that really stood out to me was Darrell Harrington. He was a presence inside and out. Great on the offensive glass and finished very nicely through gritty defense at the rim. Not only was he a beast in the paint, he has a very nice jump shot to go along with that. As the game...

Phenom G3 Showcase: Day 2 Morning Standouts

By: Malcolm Morgan 2026 Nikolas Arnold (Riptide) Has been putting on a clinic today! This kid can play… he gets to the rim at will, great footwork, stays under control, and is a shot-maker. It didn’t look like anything was going to speed him up. He plays with confidence and has a calm composure while he does it. Has a high-level IQ for the game and is a checkmark for coaches in need of a true...

Reece’s Standouts: Phenom G3 (Day 2)

by: Ethan Reece 2026 Ezekiel Kelly (CC Elite)An explosive guard that played with a chip on his shoulder, Ezekiel was a big time competitor that dictated a lot of action. He was a dicy driver that featured comfort in finishing off balance, with either hand, and through defenders. He excelled at getting to his spots and used his body well to hold defenders at bay or just muscle around for...

Reece’s Standouts: Phenom G3 (Day 1)

by: Ethan Reece 2025 Josh Yates (Carolina Riptide)With the varying rosters you see of fill-in players week to week, Josh was a nice addition needed to pull out the win tonight for the 2024 Riptide. He calmly took over the point and was exciting too see a young guy step into a new environment teamwise and be a leader with his actions and voice. He’s got a great strong build for a young guard yet...

By Nicholas Chapman 2027 Nehemiah Thompson (13U Carolina Charge)  When watching Carolina Charge’s 13U squad today, Nehemiah Thompson stood out to me.

POB Eye Catchers from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 1)

2025 Jayln Connor (Team Charlotte): Still remember watching this young man on his first days of practice at Mallard Creek and he caught my eyes then and continues today.  Connor is a confident guard on the floor, making plays for himself and others but really catching our eyes with his ability to be a threat from outside.  He has terrific range and can make opponents pay, but he really...

Player Standouts at Phenom G3 Showcase

6’1 ’23 Kevon Vanderhorst (Team Curry) It’s difficult to single out just one player from this balanced Team Curry roster, but Vanderhorst was certainly among the more productive pieces in this showing. He’s a very smart, well-rounded floor general with vision, penetration ability, and perimeter shooting. Additionally, Vanderhorst is a scrappy on-ball defender with the necessary quickness and...
