Each and every time Phenom Hoops gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Damon Thompson
Committed to: James Madison
What Was Said by Phenom:
“It all starts with their floor general, Damon Thompson Jr., and his ability to set the tone on both ends of the floor. He’s quick, poised, intelligent, and knows how to consistently outwork his assignment. Thompson possesses a tight handle and sharp first step, which allows him to touch the paint at a high volume and set up others or finish with a series of floaters/runners. He can attack the basket and play through contact at the rim, but looks to involve others and make the right play with the ball in his hands. Thompson plays with great pace, mirrors his opponent defensively, and forces turnovers at a healthy rate. He’s also a quality shooting threat from midrange and beyond the arc. Only a junior, Thompson offers great balance and a reliable two-way presence.”
“Even at a young age, Thompson has a nice feel as being a lead point guard on the floor. Picks his spots of when to attack, his head is always up, and he is either looking to show his craft and touch around the rim or distribute to his teammates.”
“6’0 2024 Damon Thompson will have big junior season. Good change of pace. Runs the show for John Marshall. Guards the ball at a high level. Shoots the ball with confidence.”
