What a great event it was this past weekend, with Phenom Hoops bringing in some of the top talents from South Carolina all under one building. A state that has been rich with talent but at times goes under the radar, it seems like there are some players to be found and we are looking to highlight that even more.
2025 Kaleb Evans is a 6'3 guard that you should be hearing more about in the state of South Carolina. Playing for Lexington high school, a program that already has the attention of many with 2024 Cam Scott, Evans could be the next college player to come through the program, especially with what he has shown. Learning more about his name this summer, Evans quickly caught our attention with his length and size at a young age, but also his ability to make and create plays. He has a smooth and confident shot from multiple levels, whether it is pulling up off the dribble or getting to his spots, but he also does a great job in showing off his handles and ability to get around defenders and use that same length to finish around the basket and over defenders.
A very athletic guard that has great body control, works well out in transition and impacts the game in a variety of ways.' And we believe that he is only going to get better as a player, especially as he earns more responsibilities with his team and adding more to his game.
What Has Been Said:
'6'3 2025 Kaleb Evans (Lexington) has been excellent in the midrange. Smooth pull-up jumper. Gets to his spots & able to rise up over defenders.'
'Evans was a name that we came upon this summer and it was good to see him back in action, as this is a rising guard to really watch out for in South Carolina. Really enjoy watching him operate, especially as the lengthy guard does a great job in showing his shiftiness and ability to get his defender guessing with his ball-handling. Evans does a great job in creating and getting paint touches, as he put his game on display on Day 4.'
'Evans was a name that Coach Pope told me about before the event and when watching him, he was right about the early intrigue with his game. He is a 6'2 guard that plays with confidence, has good athleticism and feel, good body control that allows him to finish around defenders, but can be shifty and strong out in transition. Evans really excelled early in creating off the dribble and attacking downhill, but also got to his spots well.'
