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...

By: DeAjai Dawkins 2023 Keyon Webb (Sheed Wallace Select 17U/NC GBB Academy)  After getting the opportunity to watch him play a few times this summer, I have a firm understanding of the reason why Keyon Webb has been receiving so much praise.
