6’0 2020 Arrington Jones: PSB Winston-Salem Yellow
Jones is arguably the best college prospect for this PSB Winston-Yellow team with his ability to use his physical and athletic gifts to create on the offensive end. He’s got a great first step with a high level of explosion that allows him to elevate above defenders at the rim. He’s a more than capable shooter that can really heat up and provide a huge spark to his team when he starts to get going from the perimeter. He’s a scholarship level talent that should continue to garner interest from High Level D3/D2 Programs in the near future.
6’2 2020 Kobe Christian: 1 Carolina – Black (Holmes)
Christian is one of the better performers we’ve seen thus far with his ability to fight down low and get to the line at will. He went 7/8 from the line and found a way to attack constantly and get the opposition in major foul trouble. He was a constant presence on the interior, and is one of the more productive players in his 17U division in this event.
6’4 2019 Javon Outlaw: NC Heat 17U
Outlaw is a consistent two way presence with his ability to use his length to create havoc and guard multiple positions on the defensive end, to go along with his 3 level scoring capabilities on the offensive end. He played a major role on a Wayne Country Day team that had a huge run in the NCISAA playoffs, and should be a great addition to most D2’s late 2019 recruiting class. Hopefully he can build the momentum from this game and find a way to carry it through the rest of April so he can garner some more interest in that live period.
6’6 2020 Jacob Powell: 1 Carolina Garnet (Patterson)
Powell is a really long forward that can shoot the cover off the basketball with the ability to heat up in a hurry. He’s a mobile and versatile defender, that uses his size to alter a lot of shots throughout the course of the game, and still finds a way to save enough energy to run off screens and take tough shots on the offensive end. Definitely a college level prospect.
6’0 2020 Isaac Sinclair: Team Stacked 17U
Sinclair is a prospect the Phenom Hoops staff has become really familiar with over the last couple of years, he’s showcased his entire arsenal over that time. He’s a smooth lefty that can score it from anywhere on the court, and does a great job getting his guys involved as a lead guard. He plays the game with a serious flare, looking to make some jaw dropping passes to his guys on the break, and brings the energy in the process. Scholarship coaches would be ignorant to not closely track Sinclair over the course of the summer and the upcoming high school season, he’s the kind of kid you want in your program.
6’4 2020 Luc-Richard Rameau: Team Go Hard NC
Rameau is another prospect that we’ve become really familiar with over the years, and he is continuing in his progression as an all around prospect in a major way. He’s a pure scoring guard, that does an incredible job understanding time and space. Using incredible footwork and patience to get to his spots, where he’s really efficient. He uses his strong/sturdy frame to create space as well, to go with the fact that he just wears down the opposition with his brute strength. He’s another one that should have D1 attention in the April live period. Patriot league schools should be all over the high academic young wing guard.
6’3 2020 Amag Kareem Tate: Team Go Hard NC
Arguably one of the best pure scoring guards we had at the event this weekend, finished with 36 points in their game against NL Disciples and showed his ability to create off the bounce in an effortless and efficient manner. He is one of the hardest kids I’ve seen all weekend for defenders to keep in front. When he’s shooting the jumper with confidence, he’s one of the best pure scorers we’ve seen all weekend, and he should have a big summer with Team Go Hard.
6’8 2020 Tyler Young: New Light Disciples
Tyler Young is a really strong low post presence that plays the game with a high sense of purpose and effort. He’s one of the better rebounders we’ve seen all weekend, showing great fundamentals with his ability to secure the ball and box out. He’s an absolute beast on the block, but still possesses great touch around the rim, allowing him to clean up just about everything on the offensive glass. Look for Young to have a big summer and to boost his stock with scholarship coaches in the process.
6’4 2019 Dhieu Dieng: Team Phoenix
Dieng is another elite scorer that has showed considerable progress in his development since the start of the school ball season 5-6 months ago. He is much more refined in his approach, prioritizing shots that he’s comfortable with, and just generally playing with more control. He’s already hearing from a bevy of D2 programs, but if he continues to play the way he did this weekend, he should garner some D1 interest in the April Live period. He’s a long wing guard that possesses all of the tools to be a great scorer at the next level.
