POB’s Best of the Best: Phenom PG/Prep Nationals (Part 2)

2022 David Dixon (Speights Academy): Jamar Franklin was strong all tournament long but so was David Dixon and we think Duquesne got an absolute steal. His blend of size, mobility, and strong motor, there weren’t many that could slow him down around the basket and he just seems to get his hands on everything. Love his work ethic on the court and he is quite skilled for his position. 2022 Cole...

Friday Standouts from Relentless Hoops Military Circuit

6’9 2022 David Dixon (Speights Academy)Dixon was arguably the top 2022 prospect in attendance at the event. In my humble and honest opinion, Dixon is a player who is being vastly under-recruited. He’s a player that could without question play in leagues like the A-10 or the American. At 6’9, he has a great mix of size, skill and athleticism. He has the ability to beat you from...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Day 1 at the Phenom Jamboree Bash

2025 Zion Williamson (Elite 1 2025): Williamson is a young but lengthy prospect, that has a natural feel on the floor, brings a ton of versatility with his game, can operate on several levels, and create for himself off the dribble.  Had a strong showing to start his day at the Jamboree Bash. 2025 Kyri Wilson (Mooresville JV): Wilson really showed a balanced attack on the floor. With his ability...

Evening Standouts at Phenom Stay Positive

NC Empire 6’4 ’20 MJ Wilkerson- There’s so much to like with Wilkerson, who is the clear leader of this group and sets the tone on both ends of the floor. He has great athleticism and physical tools, which he utilizes nicely to rebound the ball and make hustle plays. Wilkerson operated with an excellent motor, scored the ball effectively, and reliably set up his teammates throughout this...
