Phenom Hoops heads into their final travel ball event of the summer with the Phenom Summer Finale and we want to get a head start on players that you will want to check out. Here are just a few players to watch for and a breakdown of their game.

Team: ACE Elite

6’10 Tai Hamilton

Offer: UNC Charlotte

Interest: Furman, UNCG, UMASS, South Carolina, VMI, Army West Point, Upstate, ETSU, Marshall, Presbyterian, UC San Diego, ECU, Davidson, Coastal Carolina

“2023 6’10 Tai Hamilton is a big man that continues to fly under the radar but is a prospect that has worked hard, continued to develop, and I think that the best years of his basketball career are ahead of him. When watching the young man, we are talking about a fluid, mobile 6’10 prospect that makes his impact on the boards, being a presence on the glass, and manning the paint. But you can see that he has a chance only to continue to develop his overall feel for the game and be a good presence on offense.”

6’3 G Brandon Nelson (returning from injury)

Interest: App St. & Mercer

“He’s a smooth, wiry guard who excels as a perimeter shooter—both from midrange and beyond the arc. Nelson is extremely reliable, both off the catch and bounce, and consistently gets to his spots (and converts). He defends, rebounds, makes nice passes, and can also run the team if necessary.”

6’1 G Kyler Harris

Interest: Erskine, Guilford, Pembroke, Catawba

“Harris is a smooth, emerging guard that plays with such a smooth pace and feel to the game. His shiftiness on the floor allows him to find ways to attack and get the ball on the rim.”
