Team Charlotte
Team Notes:

Fresh off of an Under Armour Championship Team Charlotte is riding on a wave of momentum. Led by former NBAer Jeff McInnis, there is not a tougher team that plays harder out there.

Players to Watch
6'3' 2017 TyShon Alexander

As the best player (statistically) on the Under Armour circuits best team, Alexander averaged 12 points per game, shooting 40% from beyond the arc. He is a true combo guard with good size and unwavering confidence.
Alexander carries offers from Virginia Tech, Charlotte, and Clemson.

6'5' 2016 Josh Howard
The most commonly heard descriptor of Howard's game is, 'He plays the game the right way.' Breaking onto the scene at Phenom National Showcase where he finished with a double/double against Huntington Prep. On the UA Circuit he averaged 12 Points, 5 Boards, 1 Steal, and 1 Block per game.
Astonishingly, Howard has not picked up any offers yet. This should change soon

5'11 2018 Devon Dotson
Dotson plays the game well beyond his years. He plays the game with a tough and confident demeanor from the true point guard position. Playing up TWO age groups he had control of the court averaging 6 Points, 5 Boards, 2.5 Assists, and 1 Steal per game.
Dotson carries offers from Clemson, Georgia Southern, and Hampton

Carolina Wolves
Team Notes

Carolina Wolves are led by Top 30 player Seventh Woods, but they also have several other D1 players on the roster. The team that stems from Columbia, South Carolina comes in with a chip on their shoulder, and look to make some moves to close out the AAU season.

Players to Watch
6'2' 2016 Seventh Woods

Woods is a borderline famous player due to all his athleticism and the Youtube videos put out of him. What gets lost in the shuffle is that he can actually play. During the Phenom Champions Showcase Woods was unquestionably the event's best player. He scored any way he wanted, from 3, at the rim, off the bounce. Great show.
Woods carries offers from South Carolina, Georgetown, Florida, North Carolina, and Kansas

6'6' 2016 Eli Lake
Sure Lake is a sharpshooter, but is far from a one trick pony. While looking like a 12 year old in the face, he plays with a toughness, and edge that produces. The lengthy Lake rebounds, gets to the rim, and of course makes shots with range.
Surprisingly Lake has not picked up any offers yet. This should change soon.

6'8' 2016 Tajh Green
Green is a new name to the scene, but one that isn't surprising. Anyone close to the Columbia area will tell you that Green had all the tools, it is finally coming together. He is a high motor player, that goes after every block and enjoys rebounding.
With the light recently coming on, Green has no offers yet. That will change this weekend

6'7' 2016 Quinterious Jones, 6'4' 2016 Ty Madden

SC Hornets
Team Notes

The SC Hornets are one of the best teams in the country that are not sponsored by a shoe company. Rightfully so, they have several D1 players on their team and play with a fire, a dog throughout.

Players to Watch
6'3' 2017 Devontae Shuler

Of course Shuler is ranked as one of the Top 30 players in the country, but what sticks out about Shuler when you watch him is how hard he plays. Shuler has range, a tight attacking handle, and the explosion to finish above the rim in traffic.
Shuler carries offers from South Carolina, Clemson, Southern Cal, etc…

6'5' 2018 Zion Williamson
Williamson is still a newer name to many, however he is one to monitor. At April’s Phenom Champions Classic he had Florida, UNC, South Carolina, and others watching him. The lefty, is a versatile player with the ability to handle in the half court, attack from the wing, or post down low. He also defends multiple positions.
Williams has an offer from Clemson

6'2' 2016 Preston Parks
Without question, Parks is a shooter and scorer. The lefty has the ability to get hot quickly, and carry a team. Parks played most of the AAU season with the SC Raptors Elite, will be with the SC Hornets for the Phenom Summer Havoc
Parks carries offers from Liberty, Presbyterian, and Gardner Webb

Other Players of Note
6'7' 2017 Trey Dawkins

Team United EYBL
Team Notes

This year Team United was on a one year probation from the 17U circuit, so the program had to go out and ramp up their younger teams to make a long standing run. They did just that, starting with this 16U team. They got an elite level coach in Tony Edwards, they got high level athletes across the board, and they play with versatility and a chip on their shoulders.

Players to Watch
6'4' 2017 Kaleb Hunter

Hunter has been a name that has been floated around for a couple years, however it has finally all clicked and really come together. Hunter is getting high major interest, the lefty is a high level athlete that thrives in transition and getting downhill. An exciting player
Hunter has been offered by East Carolina, Old Dominion, UNCG, and Charlotte

6'7' 2018 Kris Monroe
Monroe has a huge frame and long arms for his age. He also has a great wing skill set, with half court handle and range beyond the arc. Lots of upside here
Monroe has been offered by UNCG and Charlotte

6'3' 2017 Jonathan Hicklin
Hicklin is a guy that isn't a household name, yet. Last year, he played last year with Team United's third team. The lefty has made a quick rise to their first team this year. He has a sturdy build and quick first step that gets him into the lane almost at will. Hicklin has a football players body, and a high level explosion when attacking the rim.
Hicklin has not picked up any offers yet, however that will change as he is seen more.
