Phenom Post Grad & Prep Nationals

Rock Hill Sports & Event Center, Rock Hill (SC)
Address: 326 Technology Center Way, Rock Hill, SC 29730

Team: S3 Academy

2024 6’5 Papa Kounta

Kounta made his impact felt in a variety of ways. At 6’5, he is an athletic guard who plays with a high motor, excels in the open court, and is one that can attack and finish well. Kounta plays under control, was able to get to his spots, connect with his jumper, and be an effective option on the court.

2024 6’0 Devin Minor

Minor had a good showing throughout the event, being one of the stars on the court leading the charge. Throughout the event, he was the primary facilitator on the court, playing with a strong pace, creating well for others, and bringing balance for his team. Was a really good passer and playmaker, but also showed the ability to spot up and score. Stood out as a scrappy on-ball defender.

2026 6’9 Deng Deng

One of the younger prospects on the team, Deng was able to give us flashes of his potential and what he could be with further development. He is a strong, mobile big who is comfortable being effective around the basket. A willing passer, a big man who can control the glass, and runs the floor well out in transition.

2026 7’2 Steven Aboky

It wasn’t hard to miss Aboky on the court, standing at 7’2 and bringing a mature, physical frame for a prospect part of the Class of 2026. And when you talk about his game, one can only be eager to see how he continues to develop with his potential. He immediately can anchor a defense down in the paint with his size and length, clean up the boards well, and give you some flashes of his offensive capabilities. As we said, his best days are ahead of him.

2024 6’2 Jhace Johnson

Johnson was a strong piece for his team at the event, showing that he brings a strong presence to the floor, can get downhill and apply a scoring option, and does so within the offense; not forcing anything on the court. He stayed involved throughout on both ends. Also displayed good athleticism.
