Mal’s Standouts from Day 2 at Phenom Team Camp

By: Malcolm Morgan 2024 Quamir Ingram (Bethany) This kid is a super skilled guard! He played at a very controlled pace the whole game and did not get sped up easily. He does a great job of playing off two feet and also getting to his spots on the court. Used his quickness to his advantage a lot and his aggressiveness helped him create opportunities for others on the court. He also has a pretty...

Dawkins’ Standouts: Phenom Team Camp (Day 2)

6’7 2024 Cal Barrett (Bishop McGuinness) A prospect I was able to catch at the tail-end of the day, Cal Barrett is a promising, wiry, shot-altering forward. Barrett has shown an ability to step out behind the three point line and knock down catch-and-shoot jumpers, along with his current niche on the defensive end. Barrett will anchor this team’s disciplined approach on defense, given his...

He’s got a lot of components to piece together an all around floor game where he can score it with swiftness and find the opportunities to gift others buckets. He turns the corner so quickly and can get to any of...

Player Standouts at Day Two of Phenom Team Camp

6’2 ’23 Andrew Schrage (Bishop McGuinness) The Villains opened their day with a huge matchup against a noteworthy opponent, and Schrage was arguably their best player from start to finish. He’s a tough, scrappy, steadily developing point guard prospect who seems to get better with each viewing. Schrage attacks the basket well and finishes or makes the proper pass to an open teammate. He...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Team Camp (Day 2)

2023 Jordan Butler (Christ Church): Butler came in as one of the top players at the event and has shown why all throughout, as he may be the most difficult matchup on the floor. At his 6’11 frame, along with his ability to operate around the paint, finish strong at the rim, or step out and be a true threat from outside, Butler has a lot to offer on the floor.  And no one was slowing his...

Dawkins’ Standouts from Day 1 at Phenom Team Camp

6’4 2026 Josiah Johnson (Fayetteville Academy) After watching a morning display of overpowering smaller defenders in the low post, rebounding at a high level, and defending with purpose, I had to inquire about Josiah Johnson. When I asked him, I was expecting to hear about a rising senior looking to solidify the college he’ll call home the next for years. This is a rising freshman in high...

Delani Hammonds 2023 Darius Abraham (Harding): Abraham had a solid day on the floor, as the senior leader played like he usually does; strong and created.

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Team Camp (Day 1, Part 2)

2024 Carlos Vazquez (Wayne Country Day): Every time I watch this young man’s game, I can just see a program finding ways to get him on the floor and for him to make plays in so many ways.  At 6’5, he shows a little bit of everything, with his ability to impact the paint and attack the glass, create off the dribble for himself and score, operate and play multiple positions, etc.  Really...
