Day two saw hundreds of coaches come through the Phenom’s Stay Positive Doors. There were 20 or so head coaches in attendance and numerous offers were handed out. This is what the live period is all about.

Day two saw hundreds of coaches come through the Phenom’s Stay Positive Doors. There were 20 or so head coaches in attendance and numerous offers were handed out. This is what the live period is all about.

When the first bleacher and entire baseline are filled with coaches for the entire day, some players cower away from the pressure, some players press to do too much and some players just go out and perform. Here is a listing of players who stood out a little above the rest…

6’3” 2018 Marque Maultsby
NC Runnin’ Rebels (NC)

Maultsby has the ability to turn the game on its head with his motor and athleticism. Maultsby is the best on the ball defender in this event. He has the ability to attack the rim in the half court, he is a blur in transition and he showed the ability to knock down the long ball. Maultsby is a scholarship level player who consistently performs at a high level. The scholarships need to start flowing.

6’7” 2018 Ben Uloko
NC Spartans East (NC)

Last night Uloko finished with 23 points and 14 boards. Today his second game had him at 27 points and 12 boards. Clearly, Uloko is a productive player. Standing 6’7” and 250 chiseled pounds and a 7’+ wing span, Uloko has touch with both hands around the basket and great hands. He rebounds almost everything in his area and plays with a great motor. We are so perplexed who Uloko doesn’t have multiple Division 1 offers already, but that should change. Just watch him.

6’5” 2018 Coby White (UNC)
Team CP3 (NC)

White is elite, there is no question about that. He had some talking yesterday that he was an early entry NBA guy. We don’t think that proclamation is that far out of the realm. He is the best scorer in the 2018 and ranked number 12 overall. He has another gear that most just cannot fathom and scores, almost effortlessly, from all 3 levels. This is one you just sit and enjoy watching.

6’7” 2019 Josiah James
TMP (SC)

Some of the high major coaches were on the sidelines saying that if James played on a shoe circuit he would be a Top 10 prospect in the country. He certainly has the skill set that turns heads. His pace is off the charts and yesterday he showed the ability to make shots at all 3 levels. James plays with a great pace and takes care of the ball, getting it where it needs to go. He is a highest level type prospect.

6’8” 2018 Dravon Mangum
NC Red Storm

Mangum has grown from a 6’4” guard to a 6’8” intriguingly skilled forward over the last year. He has transitioned his ball skills to a frame with a 7’+ wing span. Mangum showed the ability to line up all over the floor offensively, and the ability to move off the ball and take his man off the bounce. Mangum is a high upside player whose best basketball is clearly ahead of him. Coppin State and New Hampshire have recently offered, look for quite a few more schools to jump in the mix.
