July is going to be fun, especially with Phenom Hoops.  That is why we are getting just a small head-start on the teams and players that will be in attendance for the Summer Havoc.  Here, we look to preview just a few names to watch for throughout the weekend in Rock Hill, with many others stepping up their game in front of college coaches.

Charlotte Hoyas

The Charlotte Hoyas have been a popular group this summer so far. Making multiple runs at championships in Phenom events and now looking to make an even bigger statement during the LIVE Period and trust us, they are ready.  This is why college coaches should be marking them down as they read to take a look their way.  Here are just a few names to watch with this group but this is a deep program with talent.

2022 6’5 Karon Boyd
Offers: UNC-Asheville, Houston Baptist, Mars Hill
What has been said: “Boyd is one of the most productive players on this team.  Despite his 6’5 frame, this young man screams production and plays any role that is needed for his team to win. Whether he needs to step up and score, get on the boards, defend multiple positions, or just bring that hustle/energy, Boyd is your guy and is one of the best players in doing so.  Scholarship-worthy prospect.”

2022 6’5 Isaiah Williams
What has been said: “Williams is one that continues to develop and is now one to really start watching with this program. Brings good size at 6’5 and he shows that he can run the floor, find the open spot on the court, and makes himself available for his teammates. He is a tough, smart, and unselfish player that doesn’t need the spotlight to be productive. You can continue to see him developing and getting stronger.:

2022 6’3 Marcus Morgan
Offers: Mars Hill, Belmont Abbey, Chowan
What has been said: “Morgan is a very intriguing 6’2 prospect with the pedigree that college coaches like.  He brings that point guard mentality that absolutely fills up the stat sheet, whether it is finding his teammates, rebounding, or showing that he can score from multiple levels.  It is why his recruitment continues to pick up and offers are coming his way.  Smooth, shifty, and smart player on the court.”

2022 6’0 CJ Wilson
What has been said: “Wilson Jr is a leader on the court but an offensive threat with his strong built at a guard.  He shows a nice blend of initiating the offense, seeing the floor, and being a playmaker but also being a consistent scorer from all levels and strong in transition. Wilson is only looking to continue what he showed this past season.”

2022 Seth Bradford, 2022 Myles Morgan, 2022 Greg Wegner, 2022 Rasheed Baldwin, and 2022 Dante Takampe are all guards that know and understand their roles on the court.  All three bring the ability to knock down shots or bring positive minutes.  Bradford is a fundamentally sound guard that plays with an unselfish feel but can step up and make plays for himself.  Morgan is a player that brings energy and is a vocal leader on the court, as well as knocking down jumpers.  Wegner impressed with his ability to knock down shots from the perimeter, giving this program just another shooter along the outside. Lastly, Takampe has solid handles and moves well without the ball; plays really hard on both ends. Baldwin is one that can impact the game in an array of ways, scoring hte ball effectively, showcasing good athleticism, and can be an impact defender as well.

Then you have guards like 2022 Cameron Goodwin and 2022 Jayden Smith that all provide depth to this roster that is loaded with multiple guards and can help them get up and down. 2022 Carlton Anthony Jr. brings that wing-type prospect with his long wingspan.  Anthony does a nice job in being able to push the tempo, get out in transition, and finish around defenders.
