“Getting to Know” 6’3 ’24 Peter Moye

We’ve seen a lot of players come through our doors over the years, varying in appearance, skill level, and everything in between. We decided to put forth a “Getting to Know” series on some players who have attended events but still remain on the lesser-known side of things. Each of these prospects embody being a student-athlete and getting it done in the classroom as well as on the basketball...

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...

Reece’s Standouts: NCHSAA Live Period (Part 2)

by: Ethan Reece 2024 Chase Daniel (Central Cabarrus)Any other team would be complaining about their lack of height, but the Vikings have bought in and adapted to beating you with their speed. Chase is one of the quickest and scrappiest defenders in the state, snagging countless steals with sticky fingers and fully operating a two-man press with his twin Carson. No matter how skilled, coaches...

Player Standouts at Phenom MDC

6’2 ’24 Jordan Williams (Gate City Grizzlies) It’s easy to appreciate the balance within this Gate City Grizzlies roster. They had many contributors but Williams arguably stood out as their main leader on both ends of the floor. He’s a strong, athletic wing with a high motor and unselfish approach. Williams naturally finds production through playing hard, making hustle plays, and filling in the...

POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Queen City Showcase (Part 2)

2025 Andrew Grimes (Raleigh Raiders): We told you about Grimes a while back and he continues to play at a high level and catch more eyes with his game and skill set as a young prospect.  The 6’7 forward has a great feel on the court, carving out space and playing big down in the paint and on the boards, but also surprising many with his ability to step out with his mid-range shot, his...

Keep your eyes on the guard play at South Meck this season

South Meck has been a staple here in the Charlotte area but has had trouble in putting together consistent winning seasons on the court over the last few years.  That is when head coach Gary Hall entered the picture last year.  One of the top coaches around the region and a resume to back it up, Coach Hall has been looking to instill his wisdom into the program and has made a lot of noise...

Brandon’s Big-Time Ballers at Summer Havoc Day 2 (Part 2)

By: Brandon Blakney 6’3 2023 Parker Hodgson (Elav)- Hodgson plays with a chip on his shoulder and has a nice swagger about his game on the court. I witnessed him try to dunk on three defenders, he attacks the cup with reckless abandonment and doesn’t care who has reservations to meet him at the rim. In the evening matchups, Hodgson went off for twenty-seven and grabbed the attention of...

Noah’s Hoopers from Summer Havoc Session Day 2 (Part 2)

By: Noah Hooper 6’9 2024 Jarin Stevenson (Team United EYBL 2024) One of my favorite players that I’ve seen all of session two so far is Jarin Stevenson. What drew my attention to Jarin immediately was how well he was able to put the ball on the deck at his size and age. He also has a smooth-looking jump shot as well, so with his size, and the ability to shoot the basketball, it makes his ceiling...

Player Standouts from Day 2 of Phenom Memorial Day Classic

By: Ethan Reece 2024 Peter Moye (CC Elite Blue) Peter displayed a smooth shooting touch in the 8 am win, really good rotation on the shot. Standing at 6’2, he’s got a long frame for a young guard and was very poised. He knew what play needed to be made and how to get it done, displaying a good set of ball fakes and using his body. If needed, Peter could easily move down low and play post as...

DeAjai’s Day Two Standouts Part 2

By; DeAjai Dawkins 2021 6’3 Christian Wright (TSF Post Grad) Christian Wright is a primed engine of TSF, a hard-bodied roster that makes up one of the most talented post-graduate teams in the country. Christian is 6’3 with an intense competitive spirit, forcing the energy around him to complement his own. In a very memorable matchup against IMG’s Academy’s post-grad team, Christian was tasked...

Player Standouts at Phenom’s Spring Tip-Off Classic

5’9 ’24 Aidan Cook (CC Elite) Although somewhat unassuming, Cook is clearly a vital piece for this CC Elite squad. He’s still developing physically but displays excellent feel for the game and shoots the ball at a reliable clip from the perimeter. Cook makes smart decisions with the ball in his hands, both as a passer and scorer, and does a great job of operating within the framework of the...

Phenom Eastern North Carolina Junior Camp Evaluations: Team 3

Team 3 Coach: Andre Simmons   #5: 4’9 ’26 Braylen McRae (Garner) Starting things off, we look at a player that already does an excellent job of asserting himself despite a lack of true size, Braylen McRae. He’s a young, skilled point guard prospect with quickness and the ability to properly run a team on both ends of the floor. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as...
