In the western part of North Carolina and in one of the best facilities in the state at Cherokee high school, Phenom Hoops got a chance to see some of the best talents around the area.
Players came out to develop, be coached, and showcase their talent at a high level and it didn’t disappoint, as it was one of the top camps we have had this year. With our national scouts on the baseline, here are a few players that really caught the eyes of our scouts.
2021 6’1 Austin Johnson
Getting an early feel for Johnson, he displayed a nice array of skills. He was constantly in movement, felt comfortable handling and pushing the ball in transition, and absolutely loved his unselfishness on the court. Played with his head up at all times. What was also impressive was his ability to step in rhythm for the knockdown jumper.
2025 5’0 Isaac Ellis
The young but talented guard came to compete. Already showcasing a natural feel with the ball in his hands, there is no doubt that this young man can let it fly, no matter where he is on the floor. But he also does the little things on the floor. If you need a lead point guard or someone to break down a defense, he can do that as well. Ellis is one that doesn’t take anything off on the court and doesn’t back down from opponents. Tough!
2021 5’10 Drew Redmond
Redmond is a downhill attacking guard that knows how to finish at the rim. He sports a strong frame and uses that, picking his spots to attack and finding the small holes in the defense. Loved his motor as well on the court. What was great as well is that he always kept his head up and looked to hit his teammates in great positions to score.
2023 5’11 Aidain Adams
He may have been one of my favorites to start the day. Has incredible length for a young prospect and excels in pushing the ball, covering a ton of space, and either finishing with craft or dropping the ball to his teammates. He has entered the watch list for 2023 for Phenom Hoops.
2025 6’0 Kadyn Turner-Scott
Turner played with a smooth feel to his game, moving his feet on defense, running the floor in transition, and finishing with a nice touch around the rim. Then, you look down and see he is a 2025 prospect, which has to earn your attention even more. He sports an intriguing size and a prospect that will be on the radar in the coming years as he grows into his frame and position.
