2024 Jullien Cole (Richmond Jammers): I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen from Cole to start the summer. Cole brings great size to the position, along with the ability to create for himself, using his frame to go through defenders and get to the basket, but also showcases his ability to score in a variety of other ways. Make sure to watch for him more this high school season, as he could be a name to start rising up the lists for college programs.
2024 Cameron Milton (Gate City Grizzlies): Milton started off the weekend well, knocking down shots with his pull-up jumper and showing a smooth, confident release in his game but also being strong around the basket as well. He has been one that has stood out multiple times with Phenom and continues to show his production level on the floor.
2023 Magnus Swinger (Riptide 2023 NC): Swinger led the charge in impressive fashion, really showing his ability to knock down shots with a ton of range. To start his day, he hit 6 3-pointers on his way to 26 points. The 6’4 prospect always continues to show that he can be that glue-type guy but also really step up offensively, as he did on Day 1, as an offensive weapon.
2024 Ryan Lewis (Charlotte Royals): Lewis is one that continues to shine during summer ball; he did so last year and doing so again. One can see though that he has gotten stronger and developed more of his game in picking his spots to be a scoring threat. Lewis plays with great size, and the ability to finish through contact and step out (play off the ball) to knock down shots.
2024 DJ Shine (Upward Stars 16u): Shine really opened up more eyes from our scouts and is one that will be worth monitoring more down the road. On day 1 early on, he made a living in getting into the paint, creating well with his dribble, attacking the basket, and getting into the paint, as well as finishing through contact.
2024 Cooper Jackson (Team BOND): Think you may see that Jackson is one that will start becoming a bigger priority for college coaches. The growth that he has made with his game, along with getting strong is impressive. He has tremendous footwork and just understands how to finish around the basket around defenders. He is a tough, physical forward that creates matchup problems every time we have seen him this summer.
2025 Isaiah Denis (1of1): Denis has been a name we have been quite familiar with, and he continues to come out each game and put on a show, as the young man displays a unique ability at his size and length to score in a variety of ways. He doesn’t lack confidence, as the long athletic guard knocked down threes, finished over defenders, got to the line, and stayed aggressive throughout.
2025 Bryce Baker (Team BOND): Baker continues to be a star on the court and the fact he is playing up and showing how effective he can be on the court is even more impressive. Love his leadership and poise, as he makes tremendous reads, sees the floor well, makes high IQ plays and shots, but also plays within his team and doesn’t force much. Very impressive feel for the game at his age, as he continues to make his mark this summer.
2024 KJ Greene Jr. (Upward Stars): IF I’m a college coach at a high level, I’m making Greene a priority for myself as the 2024 point guard is one that simply just runs the show. Having a PG that you don’t have to worry about, that understands how to read and react, that makes the right plays and gets everyone involved, that creates and gets into the paint, and one that can provide a scoring option on the floor…. It makes life much easier at the next level. A big-time point guard that should only continue to gather more attention.
