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: Evan Morton
Class: 2024
Committed to: East Stroudsburg

What Has Been Said:

“Evan Morton has already had a tremendous high school career. He has played in 3 state title games and has walked away winning 2 of them. Evan has the ability to really change the game on both sides of the floor. He uses his length and quickness extremely well defensively when guarding the ball handler. Also, he has great anticipation skills in the passing lanes which leads to offensive fast breaks. Evan is a quick, aggressive combo guard who can score the ball in a variety of ways, He is really good at getting to his spots and continues to knock down shots, especially in catch-and-shoot situations.”

“There are so many talented players in the state, but isn’t one person who can say Evan Morton should hold zero offers. It’s genuinely shocking. Morton consistently earned headlines during his time with Virginia Premier (in addition to being a focal point on a state championship contender), yet will start his high school season as one of the most under-recruited prospects in North Carolina. He’s a smart, crafty, heady guard with the ability to reliably initiate the offense or apply scoring pressure from all three levels. Morton is a confident creator who utilizes his quickness and tight handle to generate space and convert in a variety of different ways. He contains his position well defensively and rebounds at a solid rate for his size. Expect him to see an uptick in his recruitment, as Morton should simply have more offers.”

“Morton had a tremendous showing at the event overall, and he continues to prove why he is one of the more underrated guards in the state.  A proven winner, Morton continues to make his impact felt in so many ways, along with his leadership and IQ.  He was a strong scoring option throughout, knocking down threes, attacking off the bounce, embracing contact and getting to the line, and simply contributing to his team winning.  A strong two-way prospect, Morton left a lasting impression and should be a focal point for college coaches.”
