Phenom Hoops doesn’t just shed light on the top players in the state but we want to provide a platform for ALL players. The class of 2022 is still fully loaded with talent and there are plenty of guards that are having a strong high school season that you may want to check out. Here are just a few players that are having a terrific season for their team.
2022 Trevor Button (Emerson Waldorf)
Button has been putting on a show this season in Chapel Hill, as the senior prospect has been posting some incredible stats this season. Button is averaging 32.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 2.9 steals per game. He really showed his capability this summer at the Rise Showcase, where he showed his ability to be a multi-level scorer, knock down tough shots, create for himself, and his athleticism. Button has continued to show that this season.
2022 Spencer Hairston (Dudley)
We told you about Hairston this summer when we watched him; he can absolutely fill it up on the court and Phenom mentioned that he should bring the same production this high school season at Dudley. Well, he is doing just that, as Hairston is averaging 21.1 points per game, knocking down 71 threes, shooting 46 percent from the floor and 40 percent from three.

2022 Montez Green (JH Rose)
Out east, some players seem to go under the radar but 2022 6’2 Montez Green continues to produce at a high level. Last year, Green really showcased his ability to produce, ultimately finishing the season averaging 17.5ppg. This year, he has continued to do the same, as he has been averaging 19.4ppg, 4.1rpg, 4.1apg, and 2.4spg.
2022 6’3 Lucas Lynn (Morehead)
We mentioned that Morehead was having a strong season, led by their duo. One of those players has been senior Lucas Lynn, who seems to be putting it all together in his final season. Lynn has elevated his play this year, averaging 19.3ppg, 6.1rpg, and 2.7apg. He has also knocked down 55 three-pointers this season so far.
2022 Evan Presnell (Alexander Central)
Presnell is quite a familiar name with Phenom Hoops but people have still been sleeping on Presnell and Alexander Central. Both are having a terrific year, as Presnell has been lighting it up for 18.1ppg this season. Watching him this summer, we had this to say: “Presnell is the definition of a gamer and competitor, and it’s evident in his IQ, motor, and sheer will to win. He’s quick and crafty with the ability to create for himself or others, making him a pretty challenging assignment for most opposing point guards.” It isn’t too late to start learning more about this young man and the season he is having.
2022 Jeremiah Scales (Walkertown)
Scales has simply performed at a high level for quite some time, whether it was at the Phenom 150 camps, travel ball, or during the high school season. The senior 6’3 guard is a big, strong, physical prospect that plays bigger in all facets of the game. At Walkertown this season, Scales is helping lead the charge, averaging 17.9ppg but also being a strong presence on the boards (5.2rpg). He continues to be a player that flies under the radar.
2022 Omari Bolden (Quality Education)
Bolden has played extremely well this season at Quality Education, averaging 16.2ppg, 3.4rpg, 3.6apg, and 2.2spg. He is a tough, crafty guard that can knock down shots from the perimeter. Bolden has been playing with a ton of confidence, while also showing that he can defend both on and off the ball well.
