In Greensboro, for Phenom’s CP3 Live, all eyes were on Championship Sunday. Usually Sunday is used, by coaches, as a travel day. Well the gym stayed packed with coaches throughout Sunday in Greensboro. With 30-40 coaches in the gym at times it is a testament to the amount of talent and the trust these college programs have in Phenom Hoops’ evaluation of prospects.

Now here is a list of 5 Standouts from Championship Sunday
6’6” 2019 Nate Dunlop
TMP Elite (SC) 17s
Dunlop had shown flashes throughout the week. He was consistently tough on the boards and showed the ability to knock down shots. Standing at a sturdy, and more athletic than you think 6’6”, Dunlop turned it up on championship Sunday. He knocked down seven (7) threes, hit a couple free throws and finished at the basket. It was an eye-opening performance and one that should put Dunlop on the tip of many D1 college coaches tongues.
6’6” 2019 Juwan Gary (Alabama)
Team United (NC) 17s
Last week Gary committed to Alabama and was named Second Team All Peach Jam. He was riding an incredible wave coming into this weekend and he absolutely showed out. He is an offensive juggernaut, with the ability to score, efficiently, at all three levels. He is playing with a chip on his shoulder and he is making plays, on both ends, showing fire and energy. He has shown that he should be considered a Top 50 player nationally, with the ability to move up considerably from there.
6’1” 2019 Keyshaun Langley
Team CP3 (NC) 17s
Langley is playing with an incredible amount of confidence right now. Ever since he led the NBPA Top 100 camp in Assist to Turnover Ratio and Steals per game he has been on another level. Langley showed to be a complete point guard here, with the ability to handle in the half court, distribute at a high rate and score the ball when necessary. The athletic Langley is also one of the best (if not the best) point of attack defenders in the country. Great day for him, as he looked like a possible Top 150 type prospect.
6’1” 2020 Elijah Allen
D1-Dynasty (DE) 17s
Our staff had not heard much from Allen coming into this event, however after it ended he was on the tip of many of our tongues. Allen did everything for his team, but it was his shooting/scoring ability that opened eyes. Allen has a sturdy frame with a lengthy wing span. He rebounded his position well and he has a nice handle, with the ability to get him wherever he wanted on the floor. Allen’s range was deep and his motion was effortless (consistent off the pull up and the catch from deep). Playing up, he is a sure fire D1 kid that coaches should watch closely from here on out.
6’1” 2019 Max Demeus
Ball 4 Lyfe (FL) 17s
While others scored more points, it was Demeus who controlled the entire pace of the game (on both ends of the floor). Demeus is an advanced passer with incredible ability to thread needles and generate passing lanes with flash and creativity. He has a smooth jump shot and is a top notch, point of attack defender. He does all the little things that winning point guards do. He has picked up UMass and FAU offers and that level seems right. One thing for sure, his traditional numbers may not pop on a score sheet, but his steals, assists, and wins are off the charts. Could see numerous offers coming his way.
