Almost every year, there are either late bloomers or prospects that sneak through the cracks with programs. 6’8 Eric Fox may be another one.
Almost every year, there are either late bloomers or prospects that sneak through the cracks with programs. But those are the kids that eventually become steals for programs. One player at the Phenom Hoops Stay Positive Session I and II is 2017, 6-foot-8 Eric Fox from CEBA.
This past season as a senior at Apex high school in North Carolina, Fox averaged 17.5 points per game, 8.9 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game. Coming into this summer, he continued to show just how versatile he is on the court, playing all five positions, handling the rock, rebounding in the paint, and scoring on all three levels.
The stats back it up as well; this past season Fox hit 53 three-pointers, shot 51 percent from the floor overall, 71 offensive rebounds, 61 blocks, and recorded eight double-doubles.
At the Stay Positive event in Greensboro, Fox helped propel his team and was a standout, no matter where he was on the court. Knocking down tough three-pointers and scoring the ball in an array of ways, running in transition, handling the ball, and as well attacking the boards.
Jason Porter, Phenom Hoops analyst, said “Fundamentally sound forward getting it done with inside/out ability.”
Right now, he is heading to Cape Fear CC but has also garnered interest from programs like NC Wesleyan, Lees-McRae, and Randolph-Macon.
Overall though, this young man produces on so many levels and easily could be one that is a steal for a program.
