Five more players that made a name for themselves this June

Phenom Hoops had 40 teams come through our doors in June as we ran our annual Summer Jams. A series of high school team camps we do, Session 1 in Greensboro, NC and Session 2 in Columbia, SC. These events are held so that high school teams are able to get competition during the June team camp season. It is also so these teams can gain exposure for their players.

Here are some players who enhanced their stock moving into the July live period…College coaches would be smart to check in on each of these players, they are multiple offer types whose offer list isn’t near what it should be.

6’8” 2018 Jaylin Gamble
Phenom’s Summer Jam – Session 1
Ben L Smith (Greensboro, NC)

What a transformation for Gamble over the last year. Not only has the big man transferred schools, he also dropped around 35 pounds in the process. Now the girthy big man, is lighter on his feet which couples great with his passer friendly hands. Gamble is a load on the block, already comfortable scoring over his left shoulder. He is an active area rebounder and has upside still to go. Dever is this big man’s only current offer, watch closely that list is sure to grow.

6’1” 2018 Jonathan Breeland
Phenom’s Summer Jam – Session 2
Blythewood (Blythewood, SC)

Breeland led his team to the South Carolina 5A State Semi Finals last year and this year is ready for a breakout. Breeland has a sturdy frame and plays with great pace. Mentored by former Clemson point guard Ed Scott, the ball will be full time Breeland’s hands this year. Sitting currently on no offers, he should become a major target of D2 schools and get on the radar of D1s.

6’ 2018 CJ Cappuccio
Phenom’s Summer Jam – Session 1
Bishop McGuiness (Kernersville, NC)

Cappuccio is a dead-eye shooter, and showed as such throughout Phenom’s Summer Jam Session 1. He went for games of 27, 13 and 27 in his three games. Cappuccio has a solid handle in the half court and he is able to get free both on and off the ball. July will be a big month for him and we will be very interested to see where his recruitment lands. He is a college level player.

6’7” 2018 Kyron Boyd
Phenom’s Summer Jam – Session 2
Hartsville HS (Hartsville, SC)

What a step Boyd has taken from last year to present day. It shouldn’t come as a surprise because Boyd has always had productive talent, last season he averaged almost 15 boards and 4 blocks per game. This year, the long and rangy forward has added a nice face up game. He is young for his grade, feasibly could be a 2019 prospect, so there is still some upside there. Boyd has a nice handle, getting downhill from the high post and the wing. He showed touch from the mid range, to go with hands and footwork.

6’5” 2018 Calvin Mathis
Phenom’s Summer Jam – Session 2
Aiken HS (Aiken, SC)

Mathis was quite the head turner throughout his three games at Session 2. Mathis played the point guard for his team, where he displayed the ability to make shots with range and great court vision. He also shined on the defensive end where Mathis utilized his length and quickness to go along with his innate toughness to create havoc on opposing ball handlers. Mathis has no recruitment going on, but is one that D1s should place firmly on their radars and watch throughout July.
