POB's Eye Catchers from NC Top 80: Forwards/Centers (Class of 2024)

2024 Bobby Cannon (Forsyth Country Day): What a camp it was for Cannon, as he impressed me extremely with his mindset, his leadership, and the offensive showing he put on at the camp. Averaging 21 points per game, Cannon was operating from all levels as the 6'10 prospect and was an effective scorer throughout. With his length and ability to finish around the basket as well as step out, Cannon...

Phenom Open Gym: Concord Academy

Veteran Guard Play 2025 6'2 Jake Benham and 2025 6'1 Gray Madeira have played well together this summer and that trend should only continue this upcoming season. Benham and Madeira both are vocal leaders and have shown that they can be threats from the perimeter but also move well without the ball and make plays off the dribble. These two will be counted on to lead the team, knock down shots,...

2024 Sean Birmingham seeing an uptick in his recruitment

2024 Sean Birmingham came to North Carolina and quickly made his mark with his play last year with Cannon.  He is a very intriguing prospect that has a blend of size and shot-making ability and has only continued to develop his game.  It was easy to see when we first saw him last year in 2022 when we had this to say: 'The 6'8 prospect is a complete x-factor on the court, and the way he...

6'0 '23 Sam Turner (Charlotte Country Day) Although there were numerous standout performers for the Buccaneers, Turner was clearly their biggest difference-maker down the stretch. He made plays defensively, hit timely jumpers, and consistently found ways to involve himself in the action on both ends of the floor. Turner clearly understands how to fill in the gaps for this group. Expect him to...

POB’s Eye Catchers from George Lynch Invitational (Day 1)

2024 Sean Birmingham (Cannon): Getting another chance to view the 6'8 forward and it has now been two games that he has impressed with his ability to be useful in stepping out and showcasing his fluid shot-making ability from the perimeter, but also making plays on the boards, creating and making good decisions/passes, and using his size to his advantage. He can really be a big matchup though...

New names to put on your radar from Carmel Tip-Off

2024 Kyrell Shaw (Northside Christian): Coming from Mooresville and now being a big part of Northside Christian, Shaw is a player that could garner more eyes his way. The younger brother of KC Shaw, Kyrell showed this weekend that he can be a big threat from outside if someone was looking for a shooter with range. He runs the floor and gets to his spots well, but also finished out in transition...
