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: Steven McLeod
Class: 2024
Committed to: Navy

What Has Been Said:

“McLeod stepped up big for his team throughout the game and in so many ways. A strong two-way prospect on the court, McLeod brings energy to the floor. He can be scrappy and intense defensively, is a vocal leader for his team, and does a great job in embracing contact and getting downhill.  But he also competes in all other ways, as he led the way for his team on Day 2.”

“McLeod is a difference-maker on both sides of the ball, and will be counted on to help lead his team. He can be a pest defensively, creating havoc against his opponents, but also does a nice job in creating, getting paint touches, and being a leader.  It could be a great opportunity to open more eyes his way.”

“McLeod was who we thought he was on the court; a player who can create havoc defensively, was able to create and get inside the defense, showcase good athleticism and energy, and be a leader for his team. He set the tone throughout and competed, even though shots didn’t quite fall all the time in this one.”

“Moving onto a player who made a lasting impression through his motor and adaptable identity, Steven McLeod. He’s a smart, tough, well-rounded guard prospect with feel, athleticism, and excellent defensive prowess. McLeod is a useful ball-handler and overall creator, displaying the ability to initiate the offense or generate clean looks for himself and others off the bounce. He’s a great penetrator and strong finisher, both above the rim and through contact. McLeod is a comfortable perimeter shooter who knocks down jumpers at a nice clip. On the other end, he utilizes his blindingly quick first step to suffocate opposing ball-handlers into miscues and forced turnovers. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach McGrath on McLeod: ‘Steven possesses a great motor and terrific defensive instincts. He defends multiple positions and rebounds the ball really well. Displays great penetration and finishing ability. Steven can work to become a more consistent shooter without compromising his current identity. His attitude was phenomenal.’ McLeod did a lot of things well at camp and should be a target for various college coaches over the coming months.”
