The Phenom Hoop Report Top 80 camps bring all the top talent from around the state all under one roof and there is just a different feel when these players step on the court. Phenom Hoops headed back to Lexington high school once again for the South Carolina Top 80 and man, it did not disappoint.
One could sit down and talk about each player from the event, which we will in our evaluations but here are a few players that caught our eyes from the event first-hand.
2022 6’5 Jordyn Surratt (Spartanburg)
Surratt showing fantastic movement and activity around the rim, on both sides of the floor. He is active in creating second-chance points but also getting on the boards. Love his early mentality and is always ready.
2020 6’1 Mason Grigg (Rock Hill)
He showcased his skill set in Eastern North Carolina and did it once again. Grigg surprises you with his athleticism immediately but there is much more to his game that people need to start recognizing. He runs the floor well, has a high motor on both sides of the court, and can knock down that open jumper.
2020 6’4 Tyler Bowens (Greenville)
Bowens displayed tremendous athleticism all over the court early on. His athleticism and strength certainly helped his game and his competitive nature highlighted his play early on.
2021 6’5 Quenton Flood (Columbia, SC)
Flood is an interesting player to watch and will be one as well this high school season. He was confident in his shot, even if it wasn’t falling but also makes an impact in other ways.
2022 5’11 LaDarian McCree (Lancaster)
McCree was one of my favorites early on in Lexington. It is hard to find at times a smart, instinctive lead guard that plays with a great change of pace. He reads the floor well, attacks when the opportunity is there and can play in both a high-pace or half-court offense.
2022 6’3 Jordan Simpson (Orangeburg)
Simpson plays with his head up at all times, reading what defenders give him as well as looking for his teammates. With the ball in his hands, Simpson was able to breakdown opponents one-on-one and find those small holes to attack the rim, finishing with a smooth feel.
