What Was Recently Said: The East Carolina Phenomz are consistently among the better independent travel ball programs in the state, and this year’s squad is no different. While their entire team is worthy of attention, Carlos Vasquez consistently stood out as a main catalyst. He’s a smart, strong, skilled wing/forward prospect with excellent versatility on both ends of the floor. Very seldom do you see a guy control the glass, dictate the offense, and toggle between multiple positions defensively, but Vasquez did exact that. It was impossible to be anything other than impressed with his leadership, both by example and through production. Vasquez is unselfish and adaptable, which allows him to effortlessly affect all facets of the game within the flow of the action. He pushes the break, makes great decisions with the ball, and finishes very well through contact. Vasquez also hit perimeter jumpers at a nice percentage, consistently got others involved, and made hustle plays on either side of the ball. It would be difficult to say anything other than positives about his showing at our Opening. Expect him to continue turning heads over the coming months. 

What To Expect: 

Although there are still some questions surrounding the Wayne Country Day program, it’s players should remain priorities in the eyes of college coaches. Take Carlos Vazquez, for example. He’s a big, strong, smart, versatile two-way wing/forward who naturally causes matchup problems with his overall skill level. At 6-foot-5, Vazquez can do a wide variety of different things on the court. He can post-up smaller players, initiate the offense, or create effectively for himself and others off the bounce. Vazquez is a capable shooter, but prefers to get downhill and finish through contact whenever possible. He displays great vision, toughness, and a willingness to make the best possible play with the ball in his hands. Vazquez offers a fairly versatile presence on defense, able to actively toggle between two or three positions with relative ease. Add in his rebounding prowess and ability to push the break in transition, and Vazquez has a lot of obvious value. Scholarship-level schools would be wise to get involved sooner than later, as he’s going to become a major target over the next calendar year.
