Phenom Hoops went down to Rock Hill to attend the Teammates Nationals events, which was held in the Rock Hill Sports & Event Center. It was an event loaded with talent of all levels and there were a few names that caught our eyes.
2024 Jahseem Felton (Carolina Rising Stars): Felton was part of the tremendous duo for the Carolina Rising Stars and continued to show that he can impact the game in multiple ways. Running the point, Felton’s ability to stay aggressive and score on multiple levels but also play with terrific vision is impressive. One can see he understands the game, stays patient, but also has that aggressive, downhill mentality when scoring.
2024 Zion Walker (Carolina Rising Stars): The other part of the duo, Walker really made an impression on scouts. He has been a gifted guard and one to know about in NC for some time now but it seems that he has taken his game to another level. Walker showed tremendous feel and handles, keeping defenders guessing and attacking. He plays with a strong body and finishes through defenders.
2023 Jaylen Curry (Next Level Elite): Curry’s ability to create in the open court is impressive. He uses his long, wiry frame and wingspan incredibly well, especially when he pushes the pace and gets out on offense. There aren’t too many defenders that can slow him down with his shifty, quick handles and his ability to finish over easily over defenders. Whether it is scoring or distributing, he puts on a show.
2024 Sammie Yeanay (Sonny’s Wolves): Yeanay is a new name for us at Phenom Hoops but made a quick impression. Already sporting very good size at 6’6 and long arms, Yeanay was active on the glass on both ends but also played through contact on the offensive end. Only playing for 16 months, he has a lot of upside with his game the more he develops his overall feel for the game. Also knocked down a three to show range.
2024 Kyle “KJ” Greene (Sonny’s Wolves): KJ is a guard that sports a good 6’1 frame and one that has a blend of strength, skill, body control, and athleticism. He worked really well in pick and roll situations, was fundamentally sound, and played with a tremendous IQ. Greene shows excellent awareness on the floor.
