Player: Zion Blevins
High School: Chapmanville
There is plenty of talent around the country to be looking at in the Class of 2024 but one player that we have personally watched on multiple occasions seems to be going under the radar and should be one earning more attention.
2024 6’7 Zion Blevins from Chapmanville is the guy, as each time we have viewed him on the court, he constantly brings production to the table. Again, we are talking about a 6’7 prospect that is versatile, can operate and score from a variety of levels, can be a threat from the perimeter, can operate well and score inside, scores over defenders, and is quicker than bigs; he really can be a matchup nightmare on the court. We last viewed Blevins at the Hardwood Classic, where we had this to say:
“The 6’7 prospect filled it up in Game 1 and did so once again in Game 2, as he is very skilled at his size and is one that can operate and show touch inside the paint but also can stretch the floor with his perimeter feel. Versatile prospect and really can be a mismatch on the court for his team. Had a tremendous Day 1 at the Hardwood Classic.”
“6’4 ‘24 Zion Blevins (Chapmanville) continues to be very productive. Displaying fluidity, versatility, and a fairly polished scoring arsenal. Also causing problems with his rebounding and sheer motor. Standing out as a leader for this group.”
Phenom Hoops spoke to Blevins to check in on the latest. Here is what he had to say.
Phenom: How did the summer go for you overall?
Blevins: It went pretty well, gained a lot of interest from many schools.
Phenom: How has your game been improving? How would you best describe your game?
Blevins: I’ve been really working on my shooting and making faster reads on the catch and I feel like I have gotten a lot better in those aspects. I can describe my game as a 3-level scorer that can put the ball on the floor and can also guard multiple positions.
Phenom: How has your recruitment been going?
Blevins: My recruitment has been picking up a lot more. I have many interests. Coaches have been reaching out trying to talk to me more. Schools like Marshall, Radford, Lynchburg, Concord, West Virginia Tech, ETSU, and Saint Frances. They usually ask what have I been working on, and also what they look for in a recruit.
Phenom: What is your excitement about Chapmanville this year?
Blevins: I’m very excited about this upcoming school year, I think this is the year. We have all the right pieces to make a deep run. We just got to put it all together.
