Phenom Hoops was on deck throughout the weekend at Forsyth Country Day for the NCISAA Live Period (Session 2), where teams throughout the state of North Carolina came to compete in front of college coaches. It was great to see all the teams and players in action over the weekend, as we are looking to bring you the stars and stock risers for each class from the weekend. We will continue with players that impressed in the class of 2025.
2025 Chris Rivens (Covenant Day)
We got one of our first true looks at Rivens earlier this summer when he was with Team CP3 and it seems that now with the loss of Aden Holloway, it is time for Rivens to step up even as a young prospect. He sports a good frame as a guard and a really good feel for the game. Rivens uses a blend of strength and skill to his game, finishing well when attacking the rim or knocking down shots. He has a really good perimeter feel and understands how to score in an array of ways, to go along with his poise on the court.
2025 Isaiah Henry (Cannon)
Henry is one that continues to pop up a lot this summer. Getting a chance to first watch him with Team EAT, then with PSB, and now learning he will be part of team at Cannon, it is going to be really interesting to see how much he develops in that system. Though playing limited minutes, we have seen this young man go off for 30+ point outings and plays with a physical feel to the game. It will take some time for him to get used to the next level and playing at a high level at Cannon but the future seems bright for both.
2025 Q Williams (Forsyth Country Day)
Williams may have been my favorite freshman that I watched at the event but that may not surprise many with the experience he has earned and his unbelievable feel for the game as a point guard at such a young age. He plays with a great pace and feel for space on the court. Williams’ IQ at his age is hard to believe at times, whether he is finding teammates, initiating and running the offense flawlessly, or being assertive in attacking and getting downhill. Expect him to be one of the top freshman guards in the state of North Carolina.
