2024 Kaleb Spencer (Manteo): Spencer is a new name that caught our interest and with him being so far east, he may be one that falls through the cracks.' But we are here to bring more light his way, as the 6'6 forward is a developing prospect to look out for. Spencer is a blossoming talent that shows great flashes with his ability to run and finish at the rim, his hands and impact on the boards, and his fluid feel on the floor.' Spencer finishes above the rim and had great timing on the boards with great hands. Spencer should be getting on more college coaches' radars.

2025 Austin Williford (St. Anne's Belfield): Williford is another new name for us at Phenom Hoops but he really captured our eyes with his play. The 6'4 prospect is the son of Virginia assistant coach Jason Williford, and one can see that he has a great understanding of the game. He made impact plays all over the court, whether it was knocking down shots from multiple levels, showing his athleticism on the floor, filling up the stat sheet, or showing his IQ as a player.' He already holds an offer from Liberty but do believe more offers will be coming his way.

2024 Zion Walker (The Burlington School): This young man may be having the best start to the season in North Carolina, over all players.' Walker was at it again and was the talk of the event on Day 2 with his 31-point performance. Walker seems to be hitting another level in his game, showing just how big of an impact he can be on the floor. His strength, his locked in mentality, his physicality and ability to get downhill, his shot-making ability, and his impact on both sides of the floor are impressive and his recruitment could continue to see a rise; it should.

2026 Kosi Mgbejiofor (Catholic): Mgbejiofor was a player I was excited about seeing and though he faced foul trouble in his game, you have to see the excitement about this 6'10 young big man.' He presents a tough matchup with his size and fluidity.' Mgbejiofor instantly brings rim protection to the court with his wingspan and timing, as well as a big impact on the boards.' And he is still so young, that it just will take more time for him being able to be a consistent offensive threat, but he knows how to finish strong and around the basket well. He already holds a few offers but that list will only continue to grow.

2025 Jamal Brown (Word of God): Brown is one that we saw over the summer with his high-flying athleticism, and he has only continued to build on his game.' When watching Brown on the court, you simply have to love his energy and motor, his willingness to compete, and how hard he plays.' Brown plays strong around the basket and moves well all around the floor, and he continues to develop his overall feel and add more to his ability to score from multiple levels. He should be one to watch.

2024 Hampton Evans (Greenfield): Evans is one of those players that you just know what you will get when he is on the floor. He comes out, plays hard all over the court, plays multiple positions on the floor, and does what is needed for his team. He continues to show that he can score inside and out, finishes strong and with touch, and also helps on the boards as a 6’5 prospect.' Production is the name of the game for him, and he continues to be consistent each time we see him on the floor.

2024 Kamren Martin (Blue Ridge): Martin is one that caught our eyes this summer with Inspire Elite and did so once again with Blue Ridge.' The 6'5 prospect has a nice feel for the game and shows that he is smooth, fluid, and versatile.' Martin showed that he can be effective with the ball in his hands, whether it is scoring or facilitating. 'He does a great job in handling and initiating the offense, while also finding ways to score at the basket or shot-making.' Martin plays with a nice pace and feel, and he should be one that starts getting on more radars.
