2023 6'9 James Scott (NLPB): There is a lot to like about the potential Scott has with his game' But it is easy to see with his length, activity level, his quick springs and reaction on the glass, and his growing offensive game. There isn't going to be too much surprise when more schools come his way and offers start coming in.
2023 6'1 Jamal Townsend (Team Trezz): Townsend is a tough, gritty type guard that has an unselfish feel to his game, finding his teammates, getting out in transition, and making plays for others but also being able to breakdown defenders and get into the paint, creating scoring opportunities for himself.
2024 Miles Beard (CC Elite 2024): Beard is a young prospect that has played well over the event, using his strong frame to his advantage, attacking the basket and finishing, but also stepping out and knocking down shots. A young guard to watch as he continues to develop.
2022 Eammon Kenah (Atlanta Allstars): Kenah played well on Day 2, surprising many with his terrific bounce that he used both offensively and defensively, but also playing tough, finishing at the rim, and knocking down multiple three's. Strong play for the 6'4 2022 prospect.
2022 Christian Drummer (Atlanta Allstars): Drummer is a new name for us at Phenom Hoops but he grabbed our attention quickly with his defensive effort. He played with active hands, created turnovers without fouling, used his length well, moved his feet well, and led the charge in the open floor as well.
2021 Josef Fullwood (WBC Elite Aria Paris): Fullwood has been one of the most consistent scoring guards this summer and continues to do so for his team. He carries a lot of the load but it is nothing new for him after averaging 22ppg this past season. Fullwood has a natural feel, he is efficient on the court, and plays extremely hard.
2021 Nasir Blackston (Team PUSH NC): Blackston came out strong and early and didn't let up on his way to 22 points in his first game. At 6'5, he can operate in many situations, be a mismatch on the floor and really help carry the load offensively. Also liked his impact he had on the defensive end in Game 1 for his team.
2023 Dalton McNew (Team Passion Elite): In a tough matchup, McNew showed nice playmaking ability on the court. He played tough, made some terrific passes to set up his teammates, and left it all out on the court on Day 2 for his team. He brought a competitive nature but also displayed nice body control as well.
2024 DJ Boyce (Team Curry 2024): Boyce was the leader in this matchup on Day 2, as he really started to catch fire in the second half to help open up the game. He was a consistent scorer, knocking down shots with range and getting to his spots. Nice shooting stroke, especially with his pull-up jumper.
